FWIW, this model may be of some help.

Rather than a Central Mint, it has up to 676 "Mints" roughly corresponding to ccTLD's.  This can be used to prevent currency manipulation by third party tax authorities (really surtax authorities*) while data is in transit between Top Level Domains.

Indexes of the inter-tubes (indexes) are a different architecture, that system includes both the "mints" and the localized subsystem of "value" (hard currency, including !(currency), plus locally used currency).



* When, for example, a Social Networking site collects marketing information on any user, they are imposing a surtax on local commerce.

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...
