WHY SPURT Local?
SPURT Local will be the means to make SPURT known to all people and especially to support people in your community NOW.
There are many cities where a local currency or point system is already in place. Did you, for example, know that a now fairly large Swiss bank started with an internal currency without any connection to the Swiss Franc? Now you see on your balance what you have in Swiss Frank and in what is called WIR. Suppliers and vendors pay each other without any connection to the Swiss Frank? Is that not what we want to accomplish?
Look what other countries did locally with digital currency.
Another great idea is what UBUNTU is presenting: A small city can change the world.
A great example is the Bristol Pound in Bristol UK
Another example is what is happening in Kenia
In Sardinia, Italy, the economy is flourishing too
You want to use SPURT in your area?
- Would it not be great when you in the future could pay with a SPURT Card in your local shops?
- Would you not like to show your grocery and clothing shop that they can get the locals to pay with their SPURT Card?
- What if you could offer the vendors to receive 200% of the total expected production in one year immediately in SPURT on their account so that they can start to do business now already?
Benefit for the local shops
Many shops lose their clients to the Internet. What if local shops can advertise their products in MySPURT and the clients can pick up the products in their area and pay with SPURT. One of the service providers in your community can also start a service to bring the products home. Because you would accept payment in SPURT, locals might want to buy with you, for it is easy for them to get SPURT. If many shops in your town accept SPURT, even people with a SPURT account from other places, might come to visit your community.

Local SPURT Promoter
You can be a LOCAL SPURT PROMOTER and earn money by bringing vendors and buyers together!
You visit local shops and offer them:
- to buy all the production of all products they sell in the shop during the next year. Since this is future production, they do not need to deliver the products now and can sell what they have in their shop now to the clients.
- They will be paid immediately 200% of the negotiated price in SPURT to their SPURT account. This way they can even support your local community and your country.
- Their products are also offered in the MySPURT Marketplace. By searching in the SPURT system on your region or city, you can find people who are active in your region or city.
- The local shop now has SPURT to contact its own suppliers and offer the same to them. You could offer the local shop to do that for them too and earn doing that. YOU would be the surrogate and talk to the suppliers.
- If the shop owner can use his SPURT to buy from his suppliers, he will be happy to receive SPURT from clients, especially if you can explain to him that the SPURT he is using by buying his own products, will be 100% compensated in SPURT.
- You might negotiate a certain percentage of everything the shop owner is selling through SPURT.
You contact local Service providers:
- Local people*, would be able to offer services and get paid in SPURT immediately 200% for their future service for the next year.
- *Local people might be people already offering services, like carpenters, installers etc, or be unemployed but qualified, disabled but qualified, and elderly but qualified. Others may be volunteers.
- Offered services might be any professional service offered in your community by any service providers, but it can also be:
- Caretaking, walking, shopping, gardening, painting, plumbing, tax advice, administrative help, assistance with learning, driving by car to a hospital for people who cannot do that on their own, babysitting, etc.
Support for local CLUBS: They might need support for:
- musical instruments
- you name it
You whole community can profit from introducing payment with SPURT. Shops will sell more, unemployed people can earn money by advertising, people needing help can be helped, for they have SPURT to pay for the help they need.
There is one question that needs to be answered. It might be necessary to get the currency from the country you live in to pay for some things that can only be paid with that currency. SPURT can be converted to the exchangeable SPURT+ by making your community better and by bringing the local business to accept SPURT. Show the shop owners that this is secure money that they can see as saving capital and use to buy things themselves.
