ON DIGITAL CASH-LIKE PAYMENT SYSTEMS

Daniel A. Nagy

Abstract

In present paper a novel approach to on-line payment is presented that tackles some issues of digital cash that have, in the author’s opinion, contributed to the fact that despite the availability of the technology for more than a decade, it has not achieved even a fraction of the anticipated popularity. The basic assumptions and requirements for such a system are revisited, clear (economic) objectives are formulated and cryptographic techniques to achieve them are proposed.
