TROPTIONS – A Brief History

Now I just so happened to be around during the time when Garland E. Harris came up with the idea of TROPTIONS. To my amazement (but not surprise) I have seen TROPTIONS blossom into the colossal cryptoasset it is today! I never once had a doubt that TROPTIONS would be big (to put it mildly). Garland E. Harris has always been able to sprout ideas that turn into gold, or in this case XTROPTIONS.GOLD. — Safia T. Harris


TROPTIONS were originally born to solve three major problems with currencies in the barter or trade exchange industry. Barter is the direct (peer to peer) trading or swapping of goods or services for other goods or services. Barter was the first method of exchange and pre-dates currencies. Barter has three inherent inhibitors to robust commerce.

  1. Divisibility or fractionalization. If a certain horse is worth two pigs, how do you divide a horse in half to trade for one pig.
  2. Portability. How do I carry my pig around everywhere in case I want to trade.
  3. Information accessibility. How do I find out easily and quickly what I can trade my pig for and who would want to trade for it.
