    One exists, they’re even publicly traded. http://www.points.com/home/login.do?method=enter
    They don’t do it all, but they do a lot, and the only catch is the almost all exchange rates suck. So maybe what we really need is a good virtual currency exchange.

    Great idea!
    Speaking of virtual currency, an even better idea would be an exchange where people leaving a company with unvested shares/options could sell their unvested shares/options to new hires.
    The prevested.com domain is currently available for anyone interested in pursuing this opportunity.
