Reply To: Does anyone have knowledge or experience around alternative ways of trading to the use of the NZD, such as Local Currencies?

That’s great. Thanks Craig.

Local Currencies are currencies that run supplementary to a national currency and are only valid within a smaller geographical region e.g. a city. Their core purpose is to connect those communities and aid them in trading amongst themselves. There are also a range of environmental and social benefits behind them. Check out the for a great example.


Key takeaway is that communities can trade and exchange skills and products without the NZD. I think Local Currencies will have an important role to play as the economy evolves out of COVID.
