+Team 'zZZz' Posted October 14, 2007 Share Posted October 14, 2007 Hi there, I guess most of you are familiar with the following situation: You finally see that very-special-and-wanted-by-heart coin appearing in coin trade list somewhere - but unfortunately you don't have anything that the respective trader looks for. No problem at all, if you have the contacts you can arrange some kind of circle trade. But most of the time this may be not only time consuming but also you need to find the matching partners for this kind of circle trade. For a single coin this may work within an acceptable time frame - but what if there are many more coins on your *must*have*list ?inter Let's stop the upcoming discussion right from the start - what about an international multi user trade, where a computer software arranges the possible maximum of trades for a given amount of offers and wants? This is called a math trade - a trade form that is quite common in other areas (for example in the boardgame area, my second hobby). Before I try to explain all the details about a math trade (especially with my german style english) it might be best to present two "established" links that explain the wohle thing better than I can ever do: The general idea of a math trade (simply replace the term "boardgame" or "game" with "coin"): Math trade guide and of course a link to the software itself that is used to calculate the trades: Trademaximizer I have done a math trade in Germany at the beginning of this month where only a small amount of geocoin collectors participated - but we all agreed that this form of trade is quite "effective" and time saving So the question I would like to ask here (as already stated above): Are there some collectors / coin maniacs / coin trading cachers around who would like to participate in an international math trade? If so, I would gladly start such a trade here (to speak more technically: to act as the host of this trade)! Please feel free to ask any question that comes into your mind ... I will try to answer them all (but please excuse if there's a small delay in my answers due to the time shift, my "normal" job, my family ... and sometimes caching activities) Have fun!
