Hi Jordan,

Hi, there. Jordan here.

I just came across Taler the other day (ashamed I have never heard of it!). I'm a long time fan of Bitcoin but I think what Taler is doing is a great compromise and has lots of potential.

I have a few questions which I would be super grateful if someone helped me out, and I apologize if they are answered somewhere. 

Also, if it's easier i'd love to jump on a call with someone and I am happy to compensate for your time :) Also, links to the docs are a fine answer, i'm going through but there is a lot to consume.

1. Could one theoretically deploy this today with a fake token? Set up a fake exchange that just issues made up money?
Yes, that's the demo deployment https://demo.taler.net/ and the fake currency is KUDOS
2. What is the major difference between this and Open Transactions?
Not sure but seems that OT is account-based and GNU Taler is token-based
3. For microtransaction usage: Could you request a lump sum from the exchange and then spend that in smaller increments with the merchant? Or would each microtransaction be requested individually from the exchange?
GNU Taler is like cash in some sense, you get a number of coins each of them with a defined amount. If what you are going to buy is 30 and you just have a coin of 50, the wallet is going to get 20 worth of new coins.  
4. What is the current status of wallet-to-wallet? Another question regarding that is - in wallet-to-wallet, would the receiver have to behave like a merchant in sense of the lack of privacy / taxation?
Status: Work in progress

I probably have a few more, going to keep digging in! Sorry for the blast of questions, but really cool project here, would love to help where I can!

Thanks :)
