Using highly complex and
nested IT Infrastructure
Using blockchain technology with still limited scalability
to create transaction networks
Using centralized transaction engines
with web frontends
Bridging these worlds?
Credit or payment networks are far from to be interoperable.
Is there a way to build bridges between theme?
We think there is!
Initiatives as interledger lying out now the path to create a common protocol for different kind of payment systems. We from moneygrid build a ramp to use permissoned blockchain technology and protocols as interledger to use for Community or Corporate Currencies. But not to neglect the knowledge from software tools that are in use for Community Currencies.
Our aim is to create a platform with tool for a more divers economy. This site is a starting point an will inform about the progress of our plans and other related news.
P2P cross trading
Trying to find currency traders for every possible pair of currencies or ledgers is unrealistic. The number of possible combinations explodes as the number of ledgers increases.
Using of intermediary
Using intermediary - in Ripple/Interledger terms marketmakers- reduces the complexity dramatically. But still every possible exchange is possible.
Using structured intermediary
Moneygrids approach to this is using structured intermediary. That allows to connect and exchange currencies, that are from completely different kind. Most of the community currencies are working mainly in island mode. So a free exchange would destroy their "business model" immediately.
