Summary

GNU Taler - Taxable Anonymous Libre Electronic Reserves

Note: The add-on is still experimental and intended for developers. Check out the demonstration.

Taxable Unlike Bitcoin or cash payments, Taler ensures that governments can easily track their citizen's income and thus collect sales, value-added or income taxes. Taler is thus a currency for the mainstream economy, and not the black market.

Anonymous When you pay with Taler, your identity does not have to be revealed to the merchant. The bank, government and mint will also never learn how you spent your electronic money. However, you can prove that you paid in court if necessary.

Libre Taler is free software from GNU implementing an open protocol. Anybody is welcome to inspect our code and integrate our reference implementation into their applications.

Great concept. Hope the EU adopts this! It sits somewhere between physical cash and debit cards. I'd use this over PayPal or debit cards both online and in real life!
