What Is Happening?

Suffering Cities

Many Cities Are Suffering

From an insufficient supply of money, slow circulation of payments due to lack of suitable payments options, low social & economic Integration, inclusion, cohesion and resilience. An increasingly aging population dependent on a rapidly declining population.

We've Been Helping

From the early 1990s we saw this problem around us, and even bigger problems on the horizon. Since then, on our own and in partnership we have implemented numerous city currencies worldwide. We assist stakeholders to identify key problems, develop new financial technology innovations and monitor and evaluate their effectiveness.

Now We're Scaling

The Qoin Foundation is a worldwide network of city currency designers and practitioners assisting the CCMG - City Currency Management Group with the design, implementation, management and evaluation of city currencies that are tailored specifically to each city. We're scaling up to make our solutions available everywhere.
