I have decided to post once every week, weather and time permits, research paper or essay that are highly interesting.
We propose and construct a quantum money scheme that allows verification through classical communication with a bank. This is the first demonstration that a secure quantum money scheme exists that does not require quantum communication for coin verification.
Our scheme is secure against adaptive adversaries – this property is not directly related to the possibility of classical verification, nevertheless none of the earlier quantum money constructions is known to possess it.
