Hello Jerry, thanks for your reply. Yes indeed there are serious
tracking issues with this kind of technologies. My motivation is to make
transportable goods usable as cash, as they are exchanged from hand to
hand they are less subject to tracking people than the same technology
being present in an objects people keep with them all year long. The
monetary emancipation that I look for is positive for privacy, but yes
indeed it should not undermine other aspects of privacy.
