How are skills traded?
Trading is done in units of exchange which we call 'Oaks'. Members 'buy' these services and arrange a price with the person doing the work. The charge is in 'Oaks' (or a mix of Oaks and sterling). Members can transfer Oaks electronically via this website. The amount is then deducted form one account and credited to the other - all held on computer. Any Oaks that you earn are spendable with anyone on the system.
