49 All transactions in Taler are secured using <a href="bibliography.html">modern
50 cryptography</a> and trust in all parties is
51 minimized. Financial damage is bounded (for
52 customers, merchants and the exchange) even in the
53 case that systems are compromised and private keys
54 are stolen. Databases can be audited for
55 consistency, resulting in either the detection of
56 compromised systems or the demonstration that
57 participants were honest. Actual transaction costs
58 are fractions of a cent.

67 The scalable business model for Taler is the operation
68 of the payment service provider, which converts money from
69 traditional payment systems (MasterCard, SEPA, UPI,
70 Visa, Bitcoin, ACH, SWIFT, etc.) to anonymous
71 electronic coins in the same currency. The customer
72 can then redeem the electronic coins at a merchant,
73 who can exchange them for money represented using
74 traditional payment systems at the exchange. The
75 exchange charges fees to facilitate the transactions.
