  • Why does BLAQBORD exist?
    We built BLAQBORD to address the following issues in the Black Veteran community: Meeting Needs: Bartering allows Black Veterans to acquire goods or services that they need but might not be able to produce themselves. It enables them to obtain necessary items without the use of money. Flexibility: Bartering offers flexibility in negotiations. Parties involved can negotiate the terms of exchange based on the perceived value of the goods or services being traded. This flexibility can lead to mutually beneficial arrangements. Resource Utilization: Bartering can help utilize excess resources. If a veteran has surplus goods or services that they cannot sell for money, they can exchange them for something else they need through bartering. Social Enrichment: Bartering is more than just an economic transaction; it can be a way to build relationships, reinforce social bonds, and engage in communal activities.
