- “To initiate the relaunch, Enric Duran, decided to donate the important amount of 10 Millions faircoins to Fair Coop.”
- “At the end of November, when one FairCoin was close to 0,01 euros Fair Coop was in control of 20% of faircoins in circulation.”
- “FairCoop is moving to next stages: like the establishment of a Fair Credit system in the form of a mutual credit currency. This means FairCoin could serve as collateral for a loan system. Before that, FairCoop is organizing the way how the Faircoop funds will be gived to diferent projects and associations intending to join Fair Coop. Before spending it, the beneficiaries will have to maintain this social capital at least one year, which becomes more valuable as the cooperative’s production grows.”
