Thanks for the reply - yes BitGold is better choice
Dan thinks of everything.
But how easy will it be to do a trade with someone in practice? Will I be able to post my receive address here on the forums along with how much of the other BitGold I want, the other user then signs a transaction in his chain with that info and replies back with the transaction id, I then sign that id on my chain and transmit. Is that more or less how it could work?
