Physical market
General rules: Only Salt Pounds (any grade) can be traded at an official Salt Pound physical market. Anyone who is not a known or evident threat to security can participate in the local market as a buyer or seller. A buyer must prove his/ her maximum available funds for trading, either in traditional currency or in POWs (either physical or electronic); a seller must prove that his/ her orders are strictly and fully covered by physical goods, POWs (either physical or electronic), or a combination of both. Accordingly, both leverage (attempting to sell more than one has) and speculation (attempting to buy more than one is able to afford) are prohibited. Thus, entrance to the market is to be at all times controlled by a team member of the market who checks the participant’s reserves and stock and the validity of his/ her POWs against the blockchain, and writes down a stamped note, to be taken by the participant into the trading floor, stating his/ her maximum buy/sell capacity.

Trading protocol: A physical market is order driven and open outcry. Therefore, participants’ bid and ask orders are matched hierarchically, first by price, then by time at first-come-first served basis. Participants are required to communicate prices, quality grades and executions publicly. It is compulsory for the market to aid in the process of trading by putting down orders on a device that is visible to everyone in the trading floor; it can be as simple as a big blackboard or a computer (though NOT the system administrator’s terminal!) connected to a beamer.

Pricing rules: Asset prices (Salt Pounds grades A-F) are defined during the open outcry auction. Best executed prices (i.e. lowest executed ask and highest executed bid) automatically and authoritatively define trade pricing. Prices for each asset are to be captured by the System administrator at the middle, 3/4 and end of the trading day, and sent to the Salt Pound Upper Management for information collection, publication and transparency purposes. The price of an asset at the end of the trading day becomes the opening price for the following day.
Electronic market
If SaltShare is used to carry out an anonymous peer-to-peer transaction, there is no price setting. Instead, the involved parties directly agree on a price. In contrast, buying and selling is managed through a simple ordering system in which a user enters either a limit order (to be executed only if his/ her price conditions are met) or an immediate order (to be executed at the best possible price). Official, quoted, public pricing is built on best executed prices and renewed every 5 seconds.

Every market board has the right to define and change its opening hours, albeit according to the needs of the local population. A physical market is required to provide at least the following two basic services:
Trading Floor: A physical trading platform for buyers and sellers of Salt Pounds. Bid and ask prices are to be defined solely by the clients. The markets function regarding price development is informative, not imperative.

Only the System Administrator can issue POWs using approved, official, current Salt Pound Project blockchain software. POWs can be issued on every item passed by the Quality Control Cell. POWs issued on any official Salt Pound physical market are valid for worldwide trade using SaltShare. Every POW contains informations on the Salt Grade, the Geolocation of the physical good, and the public cryptographic key of the participant.
These services are independent from each other.

SaltShare is the electronic network which allows buyers and sellers of Salt Pounds to transact with each other regardless of their geolocation. This network requires a high-speed network of servers itself. Whenever you as an administrator, issue Proofs of Ownership (POWs), you are creating an electronic asset in the network, which is backed up by the physical asset analysed and approved by the quality control cell. You can ONLY issue POWs using official, current Salt Pound Blockchain Software, using your own Terminal. Not respecting this simple rule will result in termination of your contract. Both your Terminal and the SaltShare servers are powered by DragonFly BSD, a free, powerful, open source, performance-oriented modern UNIX-like OS which manages files through a sophisticated file system named HAMMER. Because of this, the system administrator is required to master basic UNIX utilities, including but not limited to:

Note that, for security reasons, you will have no access to a web browser or to a graphical user interphase, so you have to be comfortable with operating your terminal through the command line (shell). As a system administrator, you are to receive proper training and enough literature to master these abilities. Knowledge of Mozilla‘s Rust programming language is a big plus, since it is the programming language the custom-tailored Salt Pound Blockchain is written in. Since you work with the blockchain on a daily basis, you are highly encouraged to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions for improvements.

Introduction
The Salt Pound Network is actually a network of networks. It is both decentralised and peer-to-peer-enhanced. From this, you can see that we have no interest in monopolising the salt market, or any other market whatsoever. As explained in the FAQ section and presented in figure A, these networks are either electronic or physical:
Physical vs. electronic markets
Each market provides its own advantages and has some minor disadvantages as well. Physical markets are, of course, the best option to sell and buy the physical good, and/ or to profit from local prices (remember that they are geographically distributed and the prices can vary, albeit not significantly, from one exchange to another). Electronic markets help you buy, sell and donate quickly and with privacy. In the end, a mix of both should work for most people.

There are no central banks and no single issuing authority (every Salt Pound issued by a System administrator is valid throughout the network regardless of its physical location), no interest-powered financial institutions, no cryptocurrency mining. You are probably wondering if this is in actuality legal in (insert name of country or territory here). The answer is: if it is not already fully legal, then it isn't yet. Making transactions in Salt Pounds completely law-abiding in all territories imaginable is what consumes most of our team's time, nerves, and coffee. The important thing to remember is that the project is designed by and for the use of the people, specially and specifically marginalised ones, whoever and wherever they might be. Not primarily for any central or transnational authority to like it.

The Salt Pound Project is a registered European non-profit organisation which develops and advocates for the Salt Pound, an alternative medium of exchange which is both reliable and secure and empowers individuals in vulnerable and developing communities and fosters their economic growth. Two key objectives of the project are to be as inclusive as possible (i.e. to reach the highest number of beneficiaries regardless of their location) and to actively and constantly involve them in our decision making. The medium of exchange, which is enhanced by an open source blockchain framework called Exonum, is backed up by one of the most widely used and easily available minerals in the world: natural salt. Through this hybrid approach, we expect our users to benefit from blockchain technologies to empower their own local community. The speculation and bubble effects to which cryptocurrencies are prone are actively prevented.

The strictly decentralised, carefully structured ecosystem in which transactions in Salt Pounds will take place was conceived as a rapid and secure tunnel for donations on the one hand, and as a community marketplace on the other. The long term vision is to have established markets in which fiat currency is exchanged for our tokens, and electronic markets in which participants can share, buy and sell them peer-to-peer. Thus the Salt Pound, which is the official name of the token, has a material dimension and an electronic dimension.

The management of the organisation is designed to be transparent to the public; its decisions are enriched by an external consulting body, a community of open source software developers and a community of volunteers in charge of advocating for the Salt Pound in their local communities. Therefore, the project in its totality can be viewed as "open" in the strictest sense of the word.
During the first stage of the project, the two target regions are Latin America and the Middle East. The pilot projects are planned to be implemented in both Las Coloradas, Yucatan, Mexico and Zahle, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. The former is an impoverished community with easy access to natural salt, while the latter hosts a large community of Syrian Refugees of which, according to a recent assessment by the UNHRC, more than half do not spend enough to meet the basic needs for survival.
In the medium and long terms, the Salt Pound is to become a global, widely accepted, anti-fragile alternative medium of exchange, combining a purely humanitarian and communitarian goal with cryptographic technologies, backed up by a network of engaged, people-powered networks and physical assets.
