seems to me that a quasi-anonymous exchange could be built on Ethereum or possibly even the stack language built into Bitcoin, in which a transaction is sent with data in a specific format specifying what currency is being exchanged for what, under what conditions, and any transaction meeting those conditions triggers the exchange. it would only work between cryptos, not between a cryptocurrency and a fiat currency, though.

but I don't know enough about Ethereum or the Forth-like Stack language in Bitcoin to know for sure.

for exchanging with fiat, I have in mind a set of PayPal API scripts that could work. but I'd be afraid PayPal would freeze my account on the first complaint. they've got a reputation for that.
