FairCoin and social currencies
Author: Sam Dallyn and Kapis
In this post, we analyse the early experiences of building links between FairCoin and some local social currencies and also explore the possibilities of building on these interconnections to develop an alternative and fair ecosystem.
Join Freedom Coop
A tool that helps self-employed people break free from the control of the State and gives them an opportunity to help build and sustain this big, self-managed ecosystem. Freedom Coop serves as an alternative to using your time and labour to generate fuel for the representatives of this predatory capitalistic system which is dominant in almost every country.
FairCoin 2: Revision of one of the most promising cryptocurrencies
It has been more than a year since the launch of FairCoin 2, and we are proud to have supported the first cryptocurrency that is truly democratically managed and resource-saving, based on the Proof-of-Cooperation blockchain. Until now, it has been running without technical problems, so congratulations to our developers! If you still don't know much about this, here are some facts that can help you better understand what makes this cryptocurrency unique.
FairCoop's fourth anniversary is coming and we invite you to celebrate it with us
Next Monday, September 17, we have a triple celebration at FairCoop. In addition to being the fourth year of the ecosystem life and the 10th anniversary of Enric Duran's action to highlight the fiat money scam, we want to officially present our FairCoop school on the GCAS platform.
Arbúcies, an evolving experiment in new forms of radicalism for the 21st century
Author: Alexander R. Hufford
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. Overall, understanding this development means coming to grips with the profound changes in societal structure and the advent of new technologies in the 21st century, instead of denying them or remaining stuck in ideological abstractions drawn from forever- past models of revolt.
New wallets in the making
Three people are working on additional FairCoin tools.
Arno is adapting omnilayer to work with FairCoin. This will allow us to offer web wallets and smart contracts on top of the FairCoin blockchain.

What makes Trade really Fair?
On 12th of May we are celebrating the World Fair Trade day, which various organisations and businesses embrace nowadays, opening up an ethical way of trading. What we will try to debate in the rest of the article is if conventional fair trade businesses are really making a difference to people and the planet, noting that there could be various levels of meaning and a wide spectrum of cases involved.
