Edinburgh is again host to the international *engineering* conference
on Financial Cryptography.  Companies active in the field meet to
present and demonstrate.  All demonstrations feature Running Code
that pushes forward the "state of the art" in Financial Cryptography.


        "The study of money, above all other fields in economics,
        is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or
        to evade truth, not to reveal it."
           -- John Kenneth Galbraith,
              Money: Whence it came, where it went - 1975, p15

This is a technical, practical meet.  Demonstrable technology in the
