Currency capabilities

I see that the currency code is currently configured to use 1 = Canadian Dollars, yet this project appears intended to create a new global payment system. Is there a reason for not using ISO currency codes?

Can a MintChip hold "cash" in multiple currencies at once? My wallet can, and regularly does...

    The current API docs hint that the MintChip info call returns a single "info" block, which details *the* currency in which the chip is storing value. So it does indeed seem that, today, a MintChip will hold a single currency.

    This isn't to say that the API cannot be changed to allow multiple info values to be returned. The Create Value call already has currency code as a parameter, allowing you to pull out different currencies as required.
