Bitcoins, LETS, Barter, Taxes & Gifts

Posted by Hernán Moraga on October 13, 2011 at 6:15 PM

Lately I've been thinking in creating a propietary virtual currency on a transactional way, so it could operate over Internet on a Eco-Village (Wi-max and Wi-fi) versus researching about opensources initiatives on virtual currency.

On the last idea, I've found several equivalents to Napster in the virtual currency, peer-to-peer type of solutions.

So, today I am publishing the result of my research on BitCoin and other solutions (listed from the most complex solutions going down to more simpler and easy to implement solutions).  I am sure that this information would be valuable for any Eco-Village project: 

Other Alternative e-Currency Systems:

Barter Economies:

Review when a Barter volume become Taxable (if over $30,000 in consecutive 12 months for persons, or $50,000 for social institutions).

Another interesting approach is the Gift Economy (where people freely gives without expecting anything in return).
