CO-OP Financial Services is using its exhibition space at the GAC to tell the world history of payment systems—from bartering with chickens and sea salt to the online payments of today.

The company’s booth space is an interactive museum of art, video and, text with the theme, “Evolution is Inevitable: The Search for Convenience and Safety in Payments.”

The exhibit illustrates that the long history of payments is a story of constant change driven by the need to make it easy to pay for things, and to make that transaction free of the fear of fraud.
