One-on-one barter is done daily between businesses. The problem with one-on-one barter transactions is that each business owner must need exactly what the other has to offer. In the Moxey network, everyone trades with everyone, even if they do not want to take back directly what the other person has to offer. Trade dollars (we call them Moxey dollars) are credited to a Moxey account in the barter exchange, which can then be spent on any item or service desired from within the network. In it's truest form, this is a way that we can keep our local dollas really local!
