Complementary Currency

Complementary Currencies


To provide a platform for collaboration between community members interested in developing and promoting economic models involving the use of means of exchange based on personal and community relationships rather than debt creation and non-transparent government and semi government policy.


We are exploring ways to come together to support different local initiatives. Currencies can be complementary to national fiat currencies as well as other local currencies.


Phoenixville Area has two complementary currencies being worked with by members of the PAT community: Phoenixville Area Time Dollars, in use since 2004, and Soltanes, a new community supported digital currency. Soltanes are the currency for the tasty pies and soups served at Sol Kitchen, 239 Bridge Street, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 12-2PM. Join us for lunch! Your first lunch is free, and if you like, Adrian will show you how to set up a Soltane account on your phone.

Goals for 2019

  • Facilitate collaboration between different complementary currencies

  • Continue to develop the currencies and to promote adoption.
