I've recently heard of a new form of currency called Bitcoins. They are a P2P based currency that is mostly decentralized. It's actually surprisingly gaining hold recently, the value of a Bitcoin has jumped up quite a bit this year. Depending on your processor, you can gain some bitcoins everyday. The technology behind Bitcoins is pretty fascinating (although I don't really understand how parts of it work)! Oh, also, all transactions are anonymous and free! So you can give someone 10 bitcoins without having to pay 11 or so!
Here's a few links
