Comment (by ioerror):

 I think the idea of using taler is an interesting open research question.
 It also seems orthogonal to many possible options that do not involve
 complicated cryptographic solutions with questionable anonymity
 properties. Using tokens, cookies, anonymous credential or ledger based
 solutions may be useful once a user tries to do some SQLI - I'm not at all
 convinced that it is reasonable to require what sounds like "an internet
 drivers license" or some Chaum scheme to read a web page.
