Digital currency is just a ledger on a computer.  The ONLY way to have a
business model is to use digital currency.  The double spend problem is
traditionally solved by having a central mint.  In other words, you have a
record keeping system on your website of everyone's account balances and
quotas.  This is not complexity, there's no other way to do it.

I'm just saying that using linked data and URIs it becomes portable and, if
you want, you can make it distributed so that you increase the value, and
potentially generate more revenue...
