Also interested in anything for this year Smiley

I just summarized my order from last year which ran for a total of $110.  If you wanted a smaller quantity, I can work something out with ya.  Perhaps 50 chocolate coins for $25 or something like that?



I'm okay to order 1 XBT worth of them if that can somehow be done.

Thanks.

I must be behind in my alt coins... what's an XBT?  Is there an exchange; how many BTCs is that worth?  Or is this just a joke offer?  haah Tongue

XBT is the ISO currency code for Bitcoin. Like USD is for the US Dollar.

gotcha; well I'll let you know if I get them setup with Bitpay, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I'll take at least 100 if that's about $20.  Maybe more if they look awesome.  I'm gonna be a bitcoin for halloween, so this is perfect for my costume theme Smiley

I probably wouldn't spend more that $50 on this without serious buyin from the boss (wife), haha.  I'll definitely pass them out to kids & see if I can get others to throw down.

I'll check with others this week.

How will you make a costume? Nice idea!

Haha, I never finished it, but I intend to for this year!  I bought a circle wooden piece, and some gold & tan fabric.  i intend to go with the B with dollar signs lines coming out the top and bottom and then attach it to a shirt somehow.

I need to get around to that soon to be ready for Halloween this year.  Last year, I ended up being in a Harry Potter group costume in my office and I was a playing card couples costume with my wife.

She was a 6 and I was a 9 of diamonds, hehe.  However, I hope for this year my bitcoin costume to work out (especially given the press they received earlier this year)!

This is probably impractical but it would be hilarious if you could figure out some way of putting private keys on the coins, and loading them up with testnet BTC.

Maybe laser-etch the coin after assembly with the address and private key? In this application it's perfectly OK if the private key isn't hidden!

It's too bad testnet versions of the common wallets and other bitcoin tools out there aren't easily accessible - IE there should exist a testnet.blockchain.info for example.

I'm thinkint it will be easier to print off bitaddress paper wallets and pass those out with the chocolates.

That'd make it too easy to scam newbies. How would they be able to tell the difference? Yeah, sure, they could read, but we both know they wouldn't.

Exactly, if I'm gonna give away bitcoins, I'm gonna give away bitcoins... I already do this through geocaching.  some people at work geocache, and I give them flyers to hide in the geocaches..

I used to distribute flyers with directions for bitcoinfaucet; however, now I just give away flyers with private keys and instructions on how to import into blockchain...

so far... zero bitcoins claimed, haha...  so it's not too expensive to just print paper wallets and give people bitcoins b/c they don't use them.

I keep electronic copies, and say the bitcoin coupon expires in one year, so I'll just move the bitcoins or give them to someone else after a year passes.

I did this a while back with my laser machine.  It's a one-off, not something I'm selling.  Was kind of freaky how the plastic window on this Trader Joe's mint tin turned this unusual shade of orange when hit with the laser.


Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

Mike, any thoughts on the casino chips that Personalized Chocolates sells and perhaps integrating your images into a casino chip design?

Interesting!

Some plastics are specifically designed to change color in aesthetically pleasing ways when hit by a laser for the purpose of cheap custom branding - possibly that's what they did here and Trader Joe's was just selling the part of the production run that hadn't been custom branded.
