All good questions, which is why I was quick to note that I have no 
interest in speculative psuedo-currency applications.

At the moment I'm mostly interesting in finding ways to use tokens to 
certify different stages of participation in scavenger hunt games for 
live events. Some of these events have global secondary audiences, so a 
token with decentralized availability and inherent authentication has 
some utility.

What is your interest that prompted you to introduce this thread?
