Here is "ritual" for you: How about spending few coins on actual service or  buying some good?

+1

Better yet, how about offering the other side of that exchange?

Selling some bad? I can sell you my bad if you really want it.

So late tonight (here in Macau) we will be celebrating the block reward halving. This is of course a very momentous milestone for Bitcoin.

We were brainstorming that it'd be fun to have certain traditions or rituals on this day, celebrated every four years. Since this is the first one, it's probably appropriate to start some of these rituals!

One thing we'll likely do here is set aflame some fiat currency. We may also "destroy" a Satoshi... send it to an address that we cannot reclaim, as a sacrifice to our great Creator.

What other fun traditions should be started?

As a hat tip to the halycon early days of gpu mining ... book out an entire "bitcoin" island for the day ...

oh yeah, well stocked with hookers 'n blow ... and carrots of course..

I think a good tradition would be to cut something in half. Even if it's just a bad habit.

Happy halving day everyone!  Grin
I like this one. Cut something in half and post a pic/vid of it.

Cut a fiat note in half ?

Yeah,   that's a good one because you can tape it up and still spend it.

We were brainstorming that it'd be fun to have certain traditions or rituals on this day,

Yup, not a currency. A religion.

All money is a religion. A belief in something imagined and not real.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

That's how you define a religion? In that case I'm starting a religion that worships imaginary numbers.

I thought of meeting up with friends and drinking(skulling) another beer with each new block found till the reward drop. Maybe starting at T -10 blocks (appr. 1hr) to reward drop.

Everyone should send a satoshi to the genesis block address.

Would be more interesting if it were like a lottery and all of us send a small amount of BTC to miner, in this case laughingbear

Perhaps no?

Not exactly wanting to make bitcoin nor its creator a "GOD".

Rituals? Wtf?

Sacrifice?

Our creator?

Probably the dumbest post I have seen on this forum.

"hey let's worship bitcoin and Satoshi and dance around a camp fire with woven grass skirts while howling like Native Americans"

Easy on the weed and crack bro lol

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Excellent idea!: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_Grove

EDIT: I see somebody already beat me to it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_Grove  should go here and feast on babies.

Out of all the ideas, I like the 'throw some bitcents/coins to the last block' one. Just icing on the commemorative cake.

I'd also like to say that even if you're just joking about the religion thing, it would be best to steer way clear of that - unless you want your next bitcoin conversation to begin with "Oh yeah, I heard about that cult".

Things are hard enough without that kind of perception being started.

Good idea, I will do it when the halving day is coming. But we can't send too many Bitcoin to it, because the Bitcoin will stay right there cuz no one won't send it anywhere.

I would like to wipe my ass with a few dollar bills, because one of these days, it will be cheaper to wipe your ass with fiat paper money than buying a 6 pack of toilet rolls. So

I think this will be a great way to celebrate this event. We put some videos on youtube and it will gather a lot of attention {good and bad} to this event. Anyone up for this

shitty idea?  Grin Grin Grin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bIAVzYbymA ...As you can see, it's not forbidden, if it is a prank.  Grin Grin You not destroying currency, so it's not

against the law..  Huh

sad to see how bad the atmosphere in this (old) thread is, just because someone (Eric) wants to create a new BTC tradition. if you dont like, dont do it and move on.

for my part: sending some bits for the genesis block is fun and burning some fiat too. or print a paper wallet, cut in half and burn it  Tongue

wow, this is a nice topic for being revived after this many years :O

it would be awesome if there could be some official celebration of block halving (it is kinda like a milestone for bitcoin after all) and it would be much better if there were some media coverage of this celebration, that would bring a lot of good publicity to bitcoin.

bitcoin has come a long way from the paper in 2008 and release in 2009 it is time that we show the world and all those naysayers that bitcoin is still strong
