About Bristol LETS
LETS stands for Local Exchange Trading System. It
is a way a community can trade skills, services or goods without needing
or using real money. It's a bit like a barter system, but you don't have
to do a direct swap - instead you use a local pretend currency. With the
internet revolution its become clear that LETS would benefit hugely (in
terms of costs and administration) by being online.
So Bristol LETS is our new, online, Bristol-wide LETS scheme.
We trade using a currency called "Ideals", at a Standard Rate
of 5 Ideals per hour - ... see why 5.
We welcome members from all over the Bristol area, and all kinds of skills
are both valued and needed.
