Comments: "Micropayments for Peer-to-Peer Systems"

What is this aspect? I guess this means I'm not a Ricardo afficiando. Anyway, I wonder if Ricardo would scale down to the p2p packets that PPay (and Mojo Nation, and Digital Silk Road) were about.

The aspect is the p2p issuance. Ricardo scales down to a tenth or a hundredth of a penny, happily, and has done so from time to time. The main difficulty is that there isn't really an economic case for a payment as small as a hundredth of a penny. Consider - someone or some thing has to make a thousand of them, just to send a buck. And, that's without considering profits!

I wish I knew more about Mojo Nation ...
