Community Exchange is an open source app to connect to community currencies worldwide using the COMMEX API.
This is part of a broader initiative, called Community Forge: a non-profit organization that designs, develops and distributes tools around complementary currencies. We have provided a exchange platform to more than 400 communities to establish and manage their complementary currency, which has enabled them to:
- showcase their local resources
- increase social cohesion and social dynamism
- increase economic resilience
- promote local autonomy
- reduce the environmental impacts
Community Forge distributes free software and open-source to manage complementary currencies.
