The Impossible

FairCoop has turned 4, and is equivalent to a little child: small, full of curiosity and excitement, with great potential and with more to learn than to teach. It is also an orphan, with no parental figures to look up to. Can we adopt a step mom? Let's take a short retrospective of the last four years.

Arbúcies, an evolving experiment in new forms of radicalism for the 21st century

The endeavour of FairCoop, to enhance the networking of cooperative movements of the solidarity economy across regions and borders, and one of its most well-known tools, the digital currency FairCoin, have both reached a new level of success with the recent acceptance by the municipality of Arbúcies, in Catalonia, of payment in FairCoin for various services.

Because every experience is precious and because sharing is one of the things we do best in FairCoop, here is some news from the Milan local node. It explains how they have introduced FairCoin as a bridge between fiat money and the local currency used by the MACAO community.  It's full of useful information for any local node who wants to cooperate with any collective using another social or local currency.
