What kind of exchange do you anticipate working in an anarchist situation? Is barter or trade the only option consistent with your principles? Or do you see a committee-run economy with currency much as we have it now?
Do any anews readers believe in the power of crypto-currency to bring about a better situation, on the way to anarchy? Do local currencies have a place in your dreams? Do you have any experience with using one?
If you could make a change to how people exchange things here and now, what would that change be?

In 2009 the cryptocurrency Bitcoin was released to the public as open-source software. It was the first decentralized digital currency that works without a central repository or single administrator.

Over the past few weeks Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies have seen increased public interest, with one Bitcoin currently worth $11,531USD as of this writing (6:10 pm, EST).

While there have been some headlines and first person accounts of the Rojava region and the politics therein, there has been little analysis that is explicitly anarchist. That is grounded in the big modern questions about how can international solidarity occur in a space where most anarchists feel powerless (at home) and where ISIS, NATO, Turkey, and the PKK are all propagandizing.
