Is this implying that non-profit companies are less efficient than
companies in competition over online transactions? Its not like that 3%
is only going towards a nonprofit, most of it will be going to Visa or

EFF also uses e-gold.

I agree that the e-gold scheme is sort of wacky, but dont fault it
because its a company that isn't a non-profit.
