Equal Dollars is a community based barter currency that allows you to participate in our barter community. It is not a legal US currency — it is like Monopoly money, used specifically for bartering. Equal Dollars were created by Resources for Human Development (RHD), in Philadelphia, PA, for use in their barter community.

​​​Using a barter currency allows members to assign a value to the things they barter — for example, the community has assigned the value of 13 Equal Dollars an hour of volunteer time. By assigning value, skills, talents, time and creativity become your Equal Dollars in the HopeMarket.
