What is the Fairo?

The Fairo is a unit of measure for purchasing power. The value that 1 Fairo represents is based on the purchasing power of 20 FairCoin at the end of the year 2016, at the then valid FairCoop consensus value of FairCoin.

Who creates Fairo?

Nobody. Since Fairo is a unit of measure, that would be like creating grams or meters. Fairo is a quantity of a medium of exchange or store of value, not the medium of exchange or store of value itself.

What is FairCoin?

FairCoin is the proof-of-cooperation crypto-currency that serves as medium of exchange and store of value in the fair economy.

What is the fair economy?

The fair economy is a global grassroots movement that embraces intergral revolution, peer-to-peer culture and hacker ethics to make the transition to a new world, reducing as much as possible economic and social inequalities among human beings, and at the same time contributing to a new global wealth, accessible to all mankind as commons.

What purpose does the Fairo serve?

  1. It serves as a stable price indicator.
  2. It makes no reference and has no dependency on any money created by central banks.
  3. It is not affected by deflation or inflation of the medium of exchange.

What are Fairo rates?

The Fairo rates are conversion rates for different mediums of exchange, adjusted for the inflation and deflation since year-end 2016. Fairo rates are currently set for FairCoin and for the Swiss Franc.

Why are Fairo and FairCoop rates set above the value of FairCoin outside the fair economy?

They account for the value of the level of trust in the economic reality for different tiers of the local, translocal and global fair economy. At each tier, they help to keep value from being extracted from the fair economy by external trading partners.

How are Fairo rates set?

The conversion rates for Faircoin and the Swiss Franc are set by periodically reviewing and adjusting these rates to deflation and inflation based on consensus in an open assembly of all Fairo stakeholders.

How is the Fairo used?

Most commonly, Fairo is used to measure the quantity of FairCoin to be transfered in a trade transaction. It can also be used as reference when making transactions with another medium of exchange or transactions entirely based on trust.

Where can I pay in Fairo?

Wherever people decide to trust its value.

Are Fairos backed with FairCoins or Swiss Francs?

No, Fairos are only backed with trust. If you want to back them with a medium of exchange, such as FairCoin, some form of ledger or a paper note, you can do so as part of your transaction.

Consensus Statement from August 7th 2017:

On cryptocoin markets, the FairCoin exchange value and market cap continued to fluctuate with selling and buying pressure around the 50 cent mark, without following the rise in Bitcoin's value. Both the FairCoin2 launch and the uncertainty regarding the Bitcoin fork of August 1st have not had a destabilising effect.
The FairCoop community is expected to raise its consensus rate to 1:2 on August 10th. An adjustment seems appropriate at this point.

The Fairo rate is adjusted to 1:1.5.

The Swiss Franc rate remains unchanged at 1.01 CHF per Fairo.
