and users who consider the untraceability of value. I don't want to blow
this kind of value elsewhere in the architecture.
Btw, an I using the right terminology? I would say that E/Pluribus provides
pseudonymity & bearer rights, Freedom provides untraceability, and Blinding
provides unlinkability. Robust privacy benefits from having all three
