open source electronic cash
opencoin defines standards and provides an implementation around the blind-signature system as invented by David Chaum, known as electronic cash / digicash. The software and specs are Open-Source under a GPL License.
In 2008, we created a first draft of the protocol, which was reviewed by our crypto experts, and no obvious flaws were found. A legal report documents how an opencoin system could be used within the EU. We had also created a some sample code (including a S60 mobile client ) mostly to test the protocol and to proof the concept.
