1) I know you said you´re no longer part of the Monetas team, but are you still in touch or helping them someho?
as you´re an important investor in the company?
2) What is your vision for the future of Monetas? Do you think it will be an important project in the coming cryptofinance ecosystem?
3) What are the similarities and diferences between the Monetas and Stash business model and technology?
Are they complementary or competitor proyects?
Correct me if I am wrong but I think Monetas uses a similar software as open-transactions and it´s focused in the african market, which market is Stash pointing at? Is Stash working with bitcoin exchanges to avoid another MtGox situation?
4) Who are the 5 developers working at Stash?
5) Does Stash work completely on OT or the project runs a different software? When will be the roll out?
6) Monetas and Stash compete with the Blockstream´s Sidechains and the Lightning Network in the off-chain transactions?
What system do you think will win in the long run and why?

First, thanks for doing OT as a gift to humanity, I personally believe this project is going to make huge impact!
I have three questions:
1. what is (in your view) main OT advantage over Bitcoin Sidechains / Lightening?
2. I heard many times OT servers do not have to be trusted, because they are federated (voting pool via multisig). What happens for example: I peg my btc into OT and buy some gold certificates from gold issuer who is in voting pool with 3 other gold issuers... now, those 3 issuers are friends and they disappear for good. Am I out of luck with my gold receipt in that kind of scenario?
3. Will stashcrypto products be opensource, free, or commercial?

You talked about how you think we will still need government because even though property can be stored on the blockchain, courts will need something they actually have control over so they will use some kind of centralized store.
Can't that be somehow solved with the use of either multi sig or M of N private keys? You can announce the change of ownership on the blockchain but the behavior of that ownership can be decided by more than one person ?

Cryptoman wrote:Chris, I'd like to thank you for all of your contributions to the crypto-finance ecosystem. You always have really great ideas. I enjoyed listening to the panel discussion that you participated in at the Bitcoin Investor Conference. Your comparison of proof-of-work to the handicap principle is very insightful, and I concur that the most secure and most valuable cryptocurrencies and platforms will continue to be based on POW.
1. Do you foresee ways in which Stash can improve the fungibility and anonymity of Bitcoin? The ability to issue blinded tokens is already built into OT; do you plan to make use of this capability at Stash?
2. In the Open Transactions ecosystem diagram on the Stash web site, you show colored coin transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain. Will OT have its own implementation of colored coins, or will you use one of the existing implementations?
3. As you've no doubt discovered, it's not easy to monetize one's contributions to the cryptocurrency community unless you're running an exchange or a gambling site. What will Stash's value proposition be, and what will prevent open-source projects from undercutting this?
4. You were working with the Ethereum folks at one time and were prominently featured on the Ethereum web site prior to the crowd sale. What is your current relationship with them, and do you think that, in the long run, their platform will be as successful as Bitcoin and its associated platforms, sidechains and colored coin systems?
