IRTA�s Universal Currency Establishes New Trading Record

Universal Currency (UC), the modern trade and barter industry's largest industry owned currency, set a record for trading in 2010 of $5,417,621.30. This currency is used among trade exchange owners when trading with one another�s exchanges.

The increase is attributed to a greater number of exchanges participating in UC, improved brokering services, and the joint UC/Greenapple Barter Trade Show held in conjunction with IRTA�s 31st International Convention.

Scott Whitmer, UC Committee Chairman, affirmed, �2010 was a good year for UC, and we expect 2011 will be even better. Exchange owners are realizing that UC is a great way to increase their trading and provide quality offerings to members outside their regional marketplace.�
