GNU Taler is a Free Software privacy-friendly payment system from the GNU project. Taler does not use a blockchain. Paying with Taler is extremely efficient: customers authorize transactions with one click, and then the system takes only a few milliseconds to finalize the transactions. In this lecture, we will introduce the political goals, architecture and technology behind Taler, demonstrate the current state of development and outline likely future developments.
