I've been thinking of putting my regular home poker game on the "bitcoin standard", and thought that it might be fun to make a set of real-world, bitcoin-denominated poker chips. Below you see my design for the chips I'm thinking of making. They will be casino-quality, 10g ceramic, 39mmx3mm chips.



The denominations I've chosen are those I think would be most useful for home games. It's interesting to note that, since bitcoin is likely to deflate over time, then chips that will be issued later will be for tinier fractions of the monetary unit.

I was wondering whether anyone else might be interested in purchasing a set of such chips from me for their own games? (I would, of course, accept payment in BTC.)


It's a pretty cool idea, it may be hard to catch on. Especially since the price fluctuates, though 100k bits will always be 100k bits - its respective US value may have some impact on a poker game. Unless all of your players are hodlers

Yes, it is interesting. Maybe you should take with some gamblers or someone running a casino. They should be able to take this idea to the next level. All the best dude!

If I understand correctly these chips are not physical representation of bitcoin in any way. They will be only pieces of ceramic/plastic not associated with any keys?
If we use it in our Poker games we still have to transfer bitcoin to the winner through standard transaction and not by obtaining the chips, right?

So who's still interested in this topic?  We may soon have something that you all may like!  Smiley

Ive had this idea too, but have a 2 of 2 key in them.  I ordered some RFID chips from china, and was going to write the public key in the NFC chip

Virgin coins being split into 1/100 BTC denominations? Sounds like a BTCC kind of thing to do. They did the same with physical blocks.

My wallet is ready.

We decided to make a range of chips mostly for fun and for collectors.

It started purely as an 'inspired by Satori chip' project but blossomed into something slightly larger as you can see.

There will be another series due that will conform to Poker "standards", such as they are and be slightly cleaner in terms of design in preparation for the first UK based Bitcoin Poker Tourney (more details to follow in coming months). We learned there is quite the desire by Bitcoiners to play poker and to be able to play with bitcoin chips adding an extra dimension. One we hope to bring to a table real soon. Yes, bets WILL be in bitcoin and prizes too.

For now though, here's a peek at the first (collectors) series of Poker Chips by PhysiBit.com

 


EDIT: There were some colour changes made to the final production chips as can be seem below

Absolutely awesome ! They look amazing. The Satori is an absolute beauty of a chip (and idea) so a lot to live up too but I have faith.
