Linked data?  Bitcoin (and variants/derivatives) can be used to solve identity problems on the web, KYC, document existence, asset exchange, distributed data storage, value difference contracts, smart property...the lists is kind of long.

The payment protocol proposed for Bitcoin by the Bitcoin devs includes merchant/merchandise/refund data in the equivalent of a digital purchase order/invoice/receipt.  I'm not sure what "linked data" is though...

I know that Bitcoin is going crazy. It's going beyond into all sorts of things. Is linked data what the web payments work adds, or am I mistaken?
