Thank you for all your responses.
It seems that we're going to give it a try.
That excites me a lot because I'm very interested in learning this
technology as I see a lot of potential in it.
If you want to help us you're of course welcomed.
Here's some spam:

I understand if you don't believe this protocol is going to "save the
world", not everybody is a monetary reformist. Just in case.

Thank you again.
