    History
    One central issue we are trying to solve: Let me digitally transact with you without requiring any centralized 3rd party authority. Examples of centrally controlled hurdles to clear: national currencies, IP Addresses, Domain Names, ISPs, etc. This means not only building alt.currencies, but eventually alternative network / computing infrastructure as well.

  • Description
    The MetaCurrency Project is building the tools and technology platforms to open source the next economy. We will not have an equitable nor a healthy economy in an information age, until we have information technology which empowers us equitably -- that is decentralized, peer-to-peer and operates by mutual agreement. We are building those technology tools, protocols and platforms. To fully meet our criteria, people need to be able to transact directly with each other with no segment of that interaction relying on a centrally controlled system.
    Peer-to-peer topology
    yes
    Single central authority
    no
