The difference between BTC and Gold and so enumerable... where do I start... perhaps the biggest flaw in your analogy is that Gold doesn't have a hard-coded limit

@Mike Hearn
Excellent response, excellent comments and definately well though out response - I'm curious about this sentence

It's possible to build a dispute mediator that doesn't actually have the ability to spend the coins

I'll have to take a further look at the protocol, but if it's acheivable then I'd do it

Does it really just take "enough votes" to get the money sent back? If this is true, then the accountability doesn't just rest with one authority.... the block chain is the source of accountability? is that right?
