Creation of a Circular Exchange Trading System

Announced by Evgeni Pandurski:

"I am currently working on a P2P system for extended bartering. I almost have finished the design of the system and have done a toy implementation of one of the subsystems. I plan not to release any code in public until I have most of the design frozen. I believe this is going to prevent the project to be spoiled down by too much design and philosophical discussions. Anyway I am open to discuss technical details with anyone who is interested in the… Continue

1. Adam Arvidsson's Ethical Economy

2. Christian Siefkes' Peer Economy
