Most economies have something of a mix depending on situations. There are for instance contexts where currency is impractical. A lot of political transactions would look at best gauche, and at worst be subject to prosecution if done in money for instance.

If money is untrustworthy land, livestock, hack metal, what not can be the basis. And exchange of gifts.
