Coinstatt is two years old and invites one to test the complementary currency to the try out: Coinstatt giving away 50,000 coin! Quickly passed two eventful years. “In 2007, the founders of Coinstatt their unusual project started: as a response to the increasing shortage of money and as support of home-based alternatives, they created their own currency, the they coin” have called. Coins are vouchers that can be used in a network of selected specialist shops as complementary means of payment. Each coin has the value of a euro in the Federation. At the beginning, there was the bold idea to create a private currency. A concept was soon designed, but there was still no deals that would accept the new money.

Now there are over a hundred of the Coinstatt team personally selected shops, craft businesses and health care providers where you can pay part of the Bill with the coins. Currently there are (still) cities in North Rhine-Westphalia, where the dissemination of Coinstatt has begun, but it is already working on a further, finally Germany-wide dissemination. The starting concept has proven why also in other federal States to apply what has been developed so far! End of April a brochure with the directory of the industrial participants in Castrop-rauxel, Witten, Bochum, Monchengladbach and Schwelm Kamp-Lintfort will appear for the second birthday of Coinstatt. There are ten coins that can immediately be used as means of payment in this brochure, which is distributed free of charge. In this respect is Coinstatt, what many in the face of the economic crisis are calling to donate money for additional consumption namely interested consumers. Who on this Coinjunkturspritze”is interested in, can pick up free his ten coins in the cities mentioned in all Coinpartner shops. Peter Krause
