The Brownie Points project aims to incentivize P2P systems with cryptographically secure, untraceable e-cash. We want to design, simulate and build scalable distributed applications like file-sharing, backup, streaming media, and onion routing that rely on e-cash to provide greater efficiency and fairness (without losing privacy). We are also building a cryptographic programming language library to aid future developers in building other privacy-preserving systems.

We assembled a team of students and faculty with interests and/or experience in cryptography, distributed systems, social networks, and economics. We are
