How does Corrency work?

Financial support can be provided by the state, town hall, company or individual

Corrents are generated from financial contributions in CZK.

Corrent is an accounting unit with adjustable convertibility

It motivates the recipient of the support to purchase the necessary commodities and thus to further support merchants.

Features of Corrents:

  • defined expiration (e.g. 30 days)
  • valid for a specific location (e.g. the city of Kyjov)
  • citizen participation in the purchase (e.g. 50%)
  • designated areas of use (e.g. food, culture, health, etc.)

Receivers of support

Recipients of support can be selected groups of citizens who meet the conditions determined by the town hall or another system founder.

Paying with Corrents for services and products

Corrent holders can pay 50% of the total price of the service or products at a vendor.

Merchants

Local merchants and service providers who meet the parameters set by the founder can join the Corrency system.

They said about Corrency

"We have decided to offer corrent support to all residents of Kyjov. I believe that this modern economic project has a great potential and it may support business not only in our town. It is a matter of time before other cities get involved."

“Corrency is a perfect example of how a hackathon project can continue its successful development and support local economy and regional development. The fact that the project has a promising future is proven by it being ranked among the top 15 of more than two hundred projects in the hackathon.”

"I am glad we could have contributed to the creation of this project. Without the support of the Ministry of Industry and Trade and its Czech Rise Up program, such a pioneer and innovative project could have risen only in limited conditions. We are looking forward to seeing how this pilot develops. We believe that this concept will work. Its comprehensive solution offers much wider application in other economic and social issues."
