Glimpses of cashless market history

Trade beads (or Slave Beads) were decorative glass beads used especially in Medieval Century as a currency to exchange for gold, goods and slaves. These beads were invented in Venice to ease the passage of European ships across the African continents.

First of all, trade beads were exchanged for slaves as well as for ivory, gold and other goods desired in Europe and around the world. The success of this form of currency can be explained through the high value that African people put upon decorative items. Africans often used beads for currency, and wealth storage, and social status could be easily identified by the quality, quantity and style of beads worn. That’s why trade beads were so popular in Africa.
