Compared to most other new crypto things, this uses actual bitcoins rather than inventing something new.

I hope it does well!

This is limited to 15 functionaries (despite having 23 participants), because it uses Bitcoin's m of n multisig transaction type, which limits n to 15.

Still, I think it's possible this achieves some success.

Interesting. Couldn't see Binance in the list, wonder why?

Seems fairly similar in nature to SWIFT...
