TradeFirst is the new business currency.

As funds disappear, customer bases dry up, and competition grows, you need a new way to get business. Barter is that new way. For centuries barter has been used to swap one thing for another in a 'direct trade.' Modern barter has evolved considerably, becoming a crucial tool for savvy business-owners looking for new sources of income, buying and selling products and services from each other using an internal currency.
