Local Complementary Currency Startup Resources

Free Resources to Assist You in
Starting Your Own Complementary Currency System

Learn More About our complementary currency platform

Here we provide a set of free resources that you can use to conceive, design, implement, analyze and improve any kind of complementary currency system.

In partnership with, Qoin Foundation we provide consulting services in designing, implementing and improving any kind of complementary currency system. In order to reduce your costs, please make use of these materials and complete them in advance of seeking consulting assistance.

If you wish to start a new complementary currency system, we ask you to download and fill out a brief Community Assessment form, to give us as much information about you, your group, and your community as possible. We would also like to know what type of system you are thinking of starting, and this Guide to Starting a New Complementary Currency System is very helpful. It would be very beneficial if you were also to fill out the more detailed Situation Assessment form as well, to give us a very clear idea about your proposed program. You may also want to consider doing a Community Economic Mapping project.

If you need assistance with improving an existing Local Currency System, we ask you to send us a detailed description and analysis of your system to us at info@qoin.org. This should include the Community Assessment form and Situation Assesment form, as well as your own analysis of the community and what program you would like to improve or implement. Also, see the Method for Assessing the Operations of a Complementary Currency System.
