It seems very cool, it seems very promising. I'm just trying to get more.... concrete.
You write, "In the future you may see little risk in putting $100 into it."
How do I actually put it in, though? I mean, I actually have a hundred dollar bill in my pocket right now. And, let me look.... yep, a five, too. Do I just "consider" the hundred and part of the five as earmarked as my reserve for Metric? I mean, I haven't mailed the money to anyone. It's still in my pocket. Is that a problem, or is that how the system's designed?
You also wrote: "Currently "just_dollars" has three members. wizardwatson (me), poopeater69 (an old friend of mine), and helmuth_hubener. Currently only me and poopeater69 are connected. Therefore, we can pay each other because there is a path of connections between us. If you were connected to me you could pay me or poopeater69."
OK. How could I pay you? I understand the commands, but... after I run the command, it seems that in real life, you do not have any more money than before. And my money is still just as much in my pocket as it was before. In order to *actually* pay you, wouldn't I have to put the money in an envelope, stamp it, and mail it to you?
