 \section{Discussion of the technical implementation potential}
+The existing software should already easily scale to billions of
+users: for each user, the database only needs to persist a relatively
+small amount of data, and the more expensive authentication solutions
+are generally easily outsourced to existing specialist providers.
+Furthermore, user authentication is only performed during recovery,
+which should be relatively rare.
+The architecture of Anastasis is extensible, so it should be in
+principle possible to support a wide range of authentication methods.
+We are starting with widely used, easily understood and commercially
+supported methods, such as sending SMS or email. However, even exotic
+methods involving biometrics are in principle conceivable and could
+be supported given market demand.
+Similarly, we should broaden the support for payment methods. We
+started with GNU Taler given that Taler Systems SA will likely be our
+first customer, but other payment methods can and should be
+supported. This includes traditional payment methods such as credit
+cards, payment providers like PayPal, but also non-traditional
+instruments like cryptocurrencies should be supported especially once
+cryptocurrency wallets integrate Anastasis as a backup solution.
+Finally, while our existing REST-based API is already pretty generic,
+we do plan on facilitating the integration of Anastasis into various
+products by providing sample integration code for various platforms
+and programming languages.  This will simplify integration into new
+products and likely also help provide a streamlined user experience
+across all consumer-facing interfaces.
