eCache: Anonymous Digital Bearer Certificates

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Tue, 10 Feb 2009 01:52:53 GMT  <== Digital Money ==> 

eCache provides anonymous digital bearer certificates, currently denominated in gold grams. They are available through Tor directly, at ffij33ewbnoeqnup.onion, and using the proxy at (for which you'll have to tell your browser to accept the SSL certificate). It's pretty small at present. They've got 310 grams of metal in storage (13 ounces). Cool.

I would really, really, like an anonymous digital gold free market solution. But the problem is this-- Many of them turn out to be scams,run by thieves who probably never had any intention of anything else. E bullion is an example. And I think people lost a lot of money with E gold. There are probably quite a few rip offs that I don't know about.

Also the fedguv and various other guvs will do what they can to stop freedom and right now that isn't insignificant.

I don't know what the answer is but it sure isn't to trust them.

E-Gold was not a scam.

E-Gold was not a scam. E-Gold was founded on Libertarian principles and operated successfully for some time in that fashion. E-Gold was bastardized when the Federal Government stepped in and threatened the heads of the company with long prison sentences. Far from a fly by night scam run by shady thieves, E-Gold is an example of government oppression pure and simple.

ECache seems legitimate. They have been operating for some time and while they have not become widely accepted, their technology seems sound. Unfortunately, ECache's commitment to anonymity is probably going to remain a serious stumbling block to their acceptance by a wide number of users for some time. It will remain to be seen whether or not they become adopted by a wide number of users and prove their trustworthiness over time.
