LATE LAST NOVEMBER, David Chaum received the Information Technology European Award for 1995. The prize, given for DigiCash’s ecash technology, consisted of a trophy development of anonymous paymnet schemes that are becoming increasingly popular in Europe for everything from online commerce to highway toll systems.
