    Those kind of things come up here from time to time. Opinions are mixed. But if something is yoked to the dollar, which I think Ithaca hours are, and not commodity based, then there doesn't seem to me to be much point.

    Commodity based would be the way to go .

    I'm getting the hell out of California, but I am designing an inflation-proof commodity-backed currency (like a more user-friendly version of Bitcoin, only with 100% local multiple commodity backing, no data-mining) for implementation in New Hampshire. I'll freely share every aspect of the model when it's finished. All the software aspects will be Open Source as well. PM me if you (or anyone else) is interested in updates.

    A multi layered commodity currency is probably the most viable and longstanding.

    Cooper/silver/gold are my 3 favorites to build a currency system.

    So much so, in fact, that I am beginning to feel the need to learn smelting skills and purchase a small furnace and press. This will take some time, but I think it will be of use to myself and community over the next 20 years (I'm 24 years old).

    Smelting and assaying, and you're literally worth a private bullion mint.

    To begin with, I'm looking at an asset pool of Gold, Silver, Palladium, Platinum, Aluminum, Copper and Nickel to begin with. Three precious metals, four industrial, all physically allocated, with allocated holding titles fully divisible and electronically transferable.

    Fully transparent, not-for-profit, and 100% LAWFUL according to any mainstream legal opinion (I've made an intense study of it from that standpoint).

    Now we're getting somewhere on this forum. I have serious envy right now, like I'm missing out on something important.

    WoW, thanks for you interest in this guys. I had just purchased the book and vid from the Hometown Money: How to Enrich Your Community with Local Currency by Paul Glover. The founder of Ithaca HOURS. I just love the idea of a multi layered commodity currency. If we could start in our local areas to eventually spread it all over the 50 states we just might get rid of the fed on our own!

    I've been working on a basic website and business plan for my own currency which is designed to really be the currency of the future. When I'm ready I will post a link.

    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    I will. I will try to let Ron Paul people know about it. Ill post a thread about it when ready. I think people here would be interested in it since it will create more free markets, but there will be some people who disagree with the methods.

    The first thing I would need when ready is some well connected people to help finance and gain acceptance of the currency. If you know of anyone who can help with that, that would be a plus.
