Highlights

1. Joining the Open Credit Network was easy, and so was doing my first trade in mutual credit.

2. You don’t need to swap things with mutual credit – you just get credit or debit in your account, depending on whether you sell or buy. Then you can use your credit to buy from anyone else in the system. You don’t have to find someone who’s got what you want, and wants what you’ve got.

3. The bigger the network, the more useful it becomes.
