Abstract

Current off-line electronic cash systems require at least one interaction between the client and the vendor for each coin. We propose a new electronic cash scheme that requires only one interaction between the client and the vendor for a complete electronic transaction. Our new protocol provides unconditional client anonymity, double-spending detection and forgery-prevention.
