I will give a 5BTC Cascasius coin to my uncle. He want to buy some but her wife did not give the "ok" even if they are already rich. She think it's a scam and I'm stupid. I wont give any BTC to my relative that don't have interest in them since they will most likely waste them.

Mine RVN and with 0% mining fees and get paid in BTC, ETH, XMR or RVN.

I think it is far better to use Bitcoin to purchase gifts with.  For example, I bought my reddit secret santa gift with Bitcoin.
+1 Bee Brothers make great gift boxes. Bitcoin Alpaca socks are nice this time of the year in northern hemisphere.  Smiley

There is of course a ton of other vendors in the B world now. And that's more useful to the success of Bitcoin itself in the long run.

Plus, wherever i buy gifts for fiat, i always tell them that i want to pay with B in the future.

The gift of bitcoins that can't be redeemed until Christmas 2013:



you dont send to their address until then?

I thought about it, but talked to my wife and she said it was a bad idea.  People just wouldn't understand, would think it was a weird gift, etc.  Like imanikin said, I have a feeling it would just be an unappreciated gift.  People who aren't interested in Bitcoin might put it on the same level as fruitcake or something.

I think it is far better to use Bitcoin to purchase gifts with.  For example, I bought my reddit secret santa gift with Bitcoin.

i gave silver as gift once, halfway toward the same feeling, but people on average know silver's worth something Tongue. The crucial point we will reach is when the average person KNOWs bitcoin's worth something. maybe 5 years in.

No - the funds are at an address that can not be determined until a secret is reveled on christmas day 2013. Its a plug for my site lbaat.net (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=128581.0). Basically your secret and lbaat secret combined make private key to address. Since you need both secrets, lbaat.net can't ever know anything of value.

good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment

so we're dependant on that site maintaining its service

Yes, this is true.

Although all secrets are connected, so all you need is the seed if the site were to ever go away. We have a solution to that problem, but not worthwhile at the moment.
