Many cities are suffering. From an insufficient supply of money, slow circulation of payments due to lack of suitable payments options, low social & economic Integration, inclusion, cohesion and resilience. An increasingly aging
population dependent on a rapidly declining population.
We started to help. Starting in the early 1990s we saw this problem around us, and even bigger problems on the horizon. Since then, on our own and in partnership we have implemented numerous city currencies worldwide.
Now We're Scaling. The City Currency Management Group works with the Qoin Foundation and Partners to design, implement, manage and evaluate the impact of city currencies. We're scaling up to make our solutions available everywhere.
Our global vision is to elevate our ways of thinking about and interacting with value on a fundamental level, and to do so in a way which is accessible and valuable for everyone. Rather than relying on appeals and awareness
campaigns, we believe the way to do this is to offer powerful incentives for changing our behavior. We believe that City Currencies are ideally suited to serve as those powerful incentives, and that they can help
us create healthier futures by engaging people as collaborators and encouraging the changes necessary to save the planet.
