Micro-payment systems are an important part of peer-to-peer P2P networks and address the "free-rider" problem in most existing content sharing systems. To address this issue, the authors have developed a new micro-payment system for content sharing in P2P networks called P2P-Netpay. This is an offline, debit based protocol that provides a secure, flexible, usable and reliable credit service. This article compares micro-payment with non-micro-payment credit systems for file sharing applications and finds that this approach liberates the "free-rider" problem. The authors analyse the heuristic evaluation performed by a set of evaluators and present directions for research aiming to improve the overall satisfaction and efficiency of the proposed model.
