In the heart of Sardinia, a group of friends embarked on an audacious journey during the financial crisis. Inspired by the mysterious nuraghi towers that dot their landscape, they created Sardex, a unique local currency.
Armed with little financial experience but boundless determination, they designed a system of mutual credit where firms earn digital Sardex by trading with others in the network.
Today, Sardex thrives, connecting thousands of businesses and facilitating millions in transactions. It’s a testament to their unwavering commitment and belief in the power of community-based solutions, offering hope to a region grappling with economic challenges.
