Just a quick update on this:

I've created a coin for testing:


So far the block chain is 5 entries long.

I've also created a Credit system based on this coins using Web Credits,
with a faucet that issues coins daily.


I am at the point now where I am starting to do some testing verification
and automation.  If you'd like to help out please pop in to #webcredis on
freenode IRC, and I can help set you up and show you how to receive coins.
The documentation is still very light, so it's aimed at people that have a
good understanding of linked data and payments right now, or those willing
to learn
