how important are things like transactional consistency for you?

would you have issues if only one side of a transfer was recorded?


Right.  Both of those questions are about consistency.  Isn't the simple solution is to use QUORUM read/writes? 

cassandra, out of the box, on it's own, would not be ideal if the above two things are important for you.

you can add components to a system to help address these things, eg zookeeper, etc. a reason why you moght do this is if you already use cassandra in your app and are trying to limit the number of databases
