How Many Trade Dollars Do You Need To Pump Into The Barter Economy to Start?

March 20th, 2008 · No Comments · Q and A

What we use as a guideline, more than anything else, is to have $3,000 per active account, as we can safely turn over that kind of business without creating an inflationary spiral. The key to a successful exchange is to remember and adhere to the law of supply and demand — when your supply of trade dollars exceeds the demand for the products you have available; it creates an inflationary problem in the system. By maintaining this formula (if you have 200 active members, you will have $600,000 positive dollars in your system), those dollars should move readily through the system without creating problems.
As you accumulate more dollars and fewer products in your system, then the demand for the more desirable products increases to the point where you won’t be able to supply that demand. This scenario will likely kill your business.
One way to help the economy is for the exchange to purchase the goods and services with which to operate the exchange DIRECTLY from its members whenever possible.  This scenario keeps the system moving, allowing you to generate fees from these transactions.
