Social Network That Operates A Digital Currency

Hub Culture is a social network which manages a digital currency and the first to merge the digital and physical worlds.

The site has dedicated representatives in over 60 locations worldwide, including Bermuda, Geneva, Hong Kong, London, San Francisco and Singapore, according to Wikipedia.
