BitMint offers the world of finance the benefit of a unified framework for cash and credit: a positive BitMint coin (cash), and a negative BitMint coin (credit, obligation). Like an electron and a positron, two matching BitMint coins of opposite value mutually annihilate:
Traders are attracted to positive BitMint coins (cash), and are "repelled" by negative BitMint coins (obligations). Yet traders covet things, and to receive something of value, traders part with their attractive positive coins, as well as accept unattractive negative coins (obligations). Historically societies prospered in proportion to the extent of trade with credit and obligation. The BitMint money framework offers a frictionless trade with both cash and obligations.
