The Philippine cooperative movement built the first-ever wallet on the Lightning open protocol! Why is this important? Because if you pay via PayPal and credit cards, they take a 3.5% cut. Such 3.5% can instead go to cooperative savings and reserves, which can be used to pay coop workers or fund service improvement. It's a no-brainer!

Details: Product Description Replete with case studies, Waking the Asian Pacific Co-operative Cooperative Potential applies a novel theoretical framework to aid in understanding meaningful change in cooperative firms, mutual firms, collectives, and communes, focusing in particular on the underexamined Asia Pacific region. It explores the common, albeit competing, objectives of transformational cooperatives that deliver a range of social benefits and corporative coops where the cooperative exhibits the characteristics of a competitive investor firm. The book provides examples of successful cooperatives in eleven countries across the Asia Pacific and reviews the theoretical framework of cooperatives, including issues pertaining to socio-economic, politico-legal, and domestic and international factors.

But don't cry, you will still get a special suprise!
