-=======================
-
-We are building an anonymous, taxable payment system using modern
-cryptography. Customers will use traditional money transfers to send
-money to a digital Exchange and in return receive (anonymized) digital
-cash. Customers can use this digital cash to anonymously pay
-Merchants. Merchants can redeem the digital cash for traditional
-money at the digital Exchange. As Merchants are not anonymous, they can
-be taxed, enabling income or sales taxes to be withheld by the state
-while providing anonymity for Customers.
-
-Cryptography is used to ensure that none of the participants can
-defraud the others without being detected immediately; however, in
-practice a fradulent Exchange might go bankrupt instead of paying the
-Merchants and thus the Exchange will need to be audited regularly like
-any other banking institution.
-
-The system will be based on free software and open protocols.
-
-In this document, we describe the REST-based APIs between the various
-components, internal architecture of key components, and how to get them
-installed.
