The MADAO community generates a token called $MADAO, which is used to trade goods and services with other community members. $MADAO is issued monthly, through a basic income, to every member, and additional $MADAO are issued when members fund Mutual Aid requests using $ADA, which is the native token on the Cardano blockchain that we will be built on. Our marketplace will facilitate work in a manner similar to a time bank that trades on labor hours, matching people who need certain skills with those who have them. $MADAO can also be used to buy and sell finished products or raw materials.
