When I began my journey in the gift economy in Sept. 2011, I stepped out of the current banking and debt system. I needed to make a clear cut first.
Because lot’s of companies ask me to support them, I accepted to reactivate a bank account and to hook myself again in the conventional system. So, when people in a company want to gift me with money, I send them an invoice from the company I created for this purpose. So, from a legal perspective, I operate in the standard economy, I pay my taxes, etc.
I see it as a transitory situation.
