Kolektivo is an initiative in Curacao with the aim of founding a cooperative society. The initiators see that many locals do not get the opportunity to develop or to grow financially because they do not have access to the necessary resources to achieve this. The team behind Kolektivo wants to change this.
The idea behind Kolectivo is to redesign the fundamentals of economics. They want to introduce a new exchange system so that people are compensated in a aternative way for the work they do for the group or individuals. The creation of a digital community currency is one of its efforts. This is to achieve a self-sufficient and self-reliant economy within the existing economy of Curacao.
