An old, perhaps more traditional system of exchanging goods – bartering – is coming to Montreal in a new and technological way.

Bunz is a social bartering app that allows users to trade their belongings.

It began in January 2016 in Toronto and has approximately 50,000 users from iOS, Android and web platforms.

The app has a no cash policy and originates from a Facebook group that grew in popularity over the last year.

A launch event will take place on Friday, July 15.

The event will be hosted by POP Montreal between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Espace POP.
