: Irrelevant point: To open an account as a consumer, not a merchant, and
: solely for DigiCash use, only $11 (!) is required.  Although I'll agree
: with the bunch of forms part.  Damn, I wish I understood legalese...

Hmm their webpage states clearly:

How Does This All Work?

There are two essential components to this test of the Ecash system. Both are necessary 
to make this work.

   1.You must open a WorldCurrency Access(tm) account with Mark Twain Bank (USA).
     This is a traditional banking account where you can choose between 25 different
     currencies for your deposits. 
   2.You will obtain and install the Ecash software by DigiCash. This is subject to a 
     separat license agreement. In conjunction with your banking account from 
     Mark Twain Bank, you can now move money to your own hard drive from the Ecash Mint,
     for spending when you choose.

Now, to open an WorldCurrency Access(tm) account you have to deposit $2500, if the account
balance falls below $250 you need to pay a $10 fee. I surely hope that someone could
shed some light on this.
