==== Description: ====
Taler is an electronic payment system providing the ability to pay anonymously
using digital cash.  Taler consists of a network protocol definition (using a
RESTful API over HTTP), a Mint (which creates digital coins), a Wallet (which
allows customers to manage, store and spend digital coins), and a Merchant
website which allows customers to spend their digital coins.  Naturally, each
Merchant is different, but Taler includes code examples to help Merchants
integrate Taler as a payment system.

Taler uses Chaum's blind signatures to sign digital coins into existence
without allowing the Mint to link the identity of the withdrawing user to the
public key of the minted coin. Taler supports fractional payments and
unlinkable transactions.

==== Other Software Required: ====
GNUnet (GPL)
GNU libmicrohttpd (LGPL)
Postgres (complicated modern BSD-variant, LGPL-compatible)

==== Other Comments: ====
RMS declared Taler an official GNU package today.

==== Tarball URL: ====
