#20.4 A Preliminary Standard for Value Unit Exchange Notes and Coins

This is a link to #20.3 the previous post in this series.

The IVES Standard

The International Value Exchange Society (IVES) would administer a standard numbering system for all accredited Independent Exchanges (IE's) in the Value Exchange Network (VEN). These local nodes of the network have all agreed to use the international standard Value Unit as their unit of trade. Each Value Unit Exchange Note bill will feature numbers on both sides that must match. There will be an array of numbers like this: 0-00-0000. The first number will represent a continent, largest to smallest, so Asia is 1, Africa 2, etc. The second two numbers represent the country code. Countries are numbered as they are alphabetically listed. The final four represent the number of IE's within each country. Each IE gets a number first come, first served. We've given enough space for up to 9,999 IE's represented in four digits within each country. We can't imagine there would be that many. Should that number ever need to grow beyond that astronomical estimate, we can switch to hexadecimal notation. One country, Russia, is given a number for their territories in Europe and another for their territories in Asia. Some small islands in the Caribbean and elsewhere are the direct possession of countries in Europe or elsewhere and therefore any IE's that would be established there would fall under the numbering for the home country.

Here are the codes for the continents and countries. You determine who will be first in your own country to open an IE there.
