Say hello to GoodMarket!

The team at Paperclip HQ have spent the last few months hard at work on an exciting new partnership...

As of this month, Paperclip will provide eToro's head office in Israel with an enterprise marketplace, for staff to buy, sell and swap together!

But there's much more to this project than just an internal marketplace, the new platform is part of a wider partnership with GoodDollar, an initiative backed by some of the biggest names in tech; including Elon Musk. GoodDollar is a universal basic income (UBI) project to help reduce income inequality around the world.

GoodDollar is a series of tests exploring different ways we can reduce global wealth inequality using blockchain technology. In time, GoodDollar plans to build a new open-source cryptocurrency to distribute money using the principles of universal basic income.

GoodDollar describes itself as a not-for-profit project 'nurturing an ecosystem of academics, NGOs, ethical investors, crypto supporters, and anyone who cares about reducing inequality'.

Speaking about the new marketplace launch, our CEO Rich said, "We're incredibly excited to work with GoodDollar and eToro on this project, and all of the potential that a universal basic income might bring for those that need it most around the world."
