Tauschring or Tauschkreis refer to the Timebanking and LETS schemes in German speaking countries. Literally meaning exchange rings, the systems offer participants the opportunity to exchange goods and services by means of a mutual agreement with another person or organisation and without using money. Some schemes use time-based currencies (hour-by-hour models) and are thus close to timebanking, whilst others use credits as currencies similar to the concept of LETS. 1

Examples of Tauschring and Tauschkreis include:

–          Tauschring Rostock;

–          Talente Tauschring Voraldberg;

–          Talente Tauschring Hannover

–          Talente Tauschkreis Niederösterreich
