I would like to post info re CYCH on this board that can be actually documented [re: press releases, articles, TV sound bites, etc]. I hope people don't mind. [Note: please don't confuse me with BBlackForest from the Yahoo CYCH board, he spells his name with 2 Bs] Thank-you and here's a post:

From CyberCash's Web Site): What is Internet Commerce?
The Internet is a rapidly growing global web of computer networks. It permits users to communicate throughout the world. The emergence of the World Wide Web--a network of servers and multimedia based information within the Internet--has fostered the exponential growth of Internet use by businesses and individuals. Using the web, merchants can provide full-color images of their products, up-to-the-minute pricing, automated ordering, and high-quality customer support. Publishers and other information providers now use the Web to disseminate their works, so users can search and retrieve data for nominal cost. Consumers are using browsers to visit web sites around the world, and purchase goods and services offered there.

Commerce without Boundaries
Because the Internet knows no boundaries, a business offering multiple e-money solutions will gain access to millions of consumers and business--no matter what country they are in, no matter the time, no matter the language.

Why Electronic/Internet Commerce Now?
With 30 million users today and a potential 90 million additional users within the next two years, the Internet has already proven itself to be a viable channel for information and promotion. Merchants capitalize on the Internet's potential as an "electronic marketplace." Because the Internet is accessible globally, the markets and potential revenue at stake are worldwide.
