The term “Collaborative Finance” was coined in 2010 and picked up in 2023 by Informal Systems to describe “DeFi protocols that emphasize the inherent graph structure of payment & credit systems” and was picked up as the title of the first Collaborative Finance Gathering (Austria, 2023).

The second CoFi gathering will take place in Banja Luka in 2024.

Several projects in the realm of community currencies, fair trade currencies, basic income pools, and post-capitalistic monetary systems have found a common vision in the goal of constructing systems of exchange beyond what traditional government-issued currencies and crypto-currencies have to offer.
