The Smileycoin works just like other electronic currencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin or Dogecoin. It was introduced as a reward to be used in an on-line educational system. You can find quite a bit more information if you look:

Note that the various wallets know how to tell you the value of the Smileycoins in your wallet. You can choose which currency you want to use as a reference currency.
The project Education in a Suitcase will happily accept your donations. In return for a donation, they will give you some Smileycoins.

You will always need to have an account at a cryptocurrency exchange. The exchanges at https://c-cex.com and https://novaexchange.com/ have several "markets", i.e. places which look like a stock market and you can sell one cryptocurrency for another. Both of these exchanges have SMLY markets. WARNING: In December 2017-January 2018 both these exchanges are going through transition periods! Wait until after January 20 before you try to use either one.
