Traeder is a system for exchange of alternative currencies without requiring special hardware or physical tokens of any kind. Using smartphones or SMS, alternative or parallel currencies (such as carbon credits) can be rolled out without upfront hardware and installation costs.

Ideas for taking this project forward

The system is a proof of concept, but it could be extended to provide a richer user experience, for instance account history, better security, and so on. Other parts of the currency system need expanding on as well, such as POS calculations and how accounts are held securely and in a distributed fashion.
