What is igobono?

igobono is a social marketplace where members buy, sell and donate goods and services using a social currency (called “bonos”) instead of money.

Our unique platform provides instant spending power by enabling our members to immediately begin trading upon sign-up. Additionally, they are rewarded for performing good deeds, such as donating goods or volunteering their time.

We have built social communication into our user interface, which helps facilitate a robust trading experience for everyone. Using a reputation system to evaluate trading partners, members earn points for activities such as selling or donating, posting offers, and inviting others to join. When enough points are accumulated, they can advance levels and unlock valuable benefits, such as additional social currency.

Company Background

igobono is the brainchild of two childhood friends who wanted to empower people to take control of their economic situations through the use of technology.

Max Volsky and Mike Dolan witnessed how people were vulnerable to economic disruptions. Leveraging their expertise in finance and technology, they created an economy that could remain unaffected by economic downturns. Together, they launched igobono, which empowers people to improve their lives by monetizing their idle assets and capabilities, while performing good deeds for their communities through donations and volunteering.
