Fan website CashorTrade.org has had an incredible year developing a "face-value community", with nearly 12,500 members and 26,000 posted trades of tickets, rides, lodging, artwork, and handmade goods. To show their gratitude, founders Brando and Dusty are running a massive New Year's Eve ticket giveaway: 2 tickets to 7 different bands playing on New Years Eve 2011, including Phish, Furthur, Widespread Panic, Umphrey’s McGee, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Moe.
The site continues to develop, including a new API program that allows users to import their Face Value Trades directly into any website, blog, or Facebook. All Phish.net members can now access CashorTrade.org posts directly in Phish.net by visiting The Phish.net Trades page! CashorTrade.org has integrated the Phish.net API into their site as well: Phish.net recent setlists, reviews, forum, and personal show lists are directly presented under the Phish.Net tab on the CashorTrade.org homepage. CashorTrade.org members can feel free to add shows to their list as well as post directly to the Phish.Net forum while remaining on the CashorTrade.org website.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
