Electronic payments track all our personal transactions, log all our spending habits and therefore create an outline of who we are as individuals, leading some people to question our personal freedom within a completely electronic payment system. On the other hand, old cash payments have given criminals an untraceable transaction that can facilitate organized crime.
Is privacy within our finances a matter of personal liberty or simply the harbourer of criminality?
The Crime Pays system is a completely electronic payment system, in which all financial transactions are open. Only paying for the privilege of privacy will ensure a transaction is hidden from public view.
The project wsa presented in a fictitious talk at the British Computer Society, in 2013.
