Feel free to think outside the box on the question. If a similar thread is available, would somebody be so kind and point it out for me?

Basically, I'm seeking abstract suggestions.

I was just about to post the same thread regarding this. Brainstorming will be good!

Which means it could still be confiscated by customs right?

It would be nice if I could buy a preconfigured FPGA or ASIC box, already set up with p2pool. Just plug it into the AC and LAN (or USB?), open 192.168.x.x in a web browser, enter your address, and watch the coins trickle in.

I don't know much about computer hardware, but I've got "free" electricity and would like some anonymous bitcoins.

Real estate. I want 40 or more acres of wilderness. Preferably in the north woods of Wisconsin. I will pay with $ if I have to, but paying in BTC would be the bomb.

No, You can buy it as a private person legally, You cannot import it for resale. The japanese web shops are in Japanese and hard to read as an European.

I'm thinking in line of cheap tablets, laptops and products where there are high profit margins for the distributors.
Normally a $100 product in Japan costs $200 in the US and $300-400 in Europe if bought in a store!

Spend Bitcoins acts as an intermediary with an Australian bill payment network allowing certain utilities to be paid using bitcoins.

I pay for both of those with Bitcoin.

Utilities are included in my rent and I convinced my landlord to make a Coinbase account with a payment page.

Real estate. I want 40 or more acres of wilderness. Preferably in the north woods of Wisconsin. I will pay with $ if I have to, but paying in BTC would be the bomb.

How about a resort on the Pike Chain, south of Iron River, Wisconsin? Comes complete with a bar/lounge and 6 cabins. Did I mention the bar? The patriarch passed away 3-4 years ago, and I believe the son & daughter are considering selling. From visiting the resort four times, all two week vacations, believe me when I tell you the fishing is great. Did I mention the bar? http://www.pinepointlodge.net/

Come to think of it, this would be great to set up as the first all Bitcoin resort.



I guess nothing ever became of this: http://bitcoinisland.org/

But, consider this: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/top-10-private-islands-sale-350000/story?id=17932025#9

I predict that by the end of the year (2013), an island will be sold via Bitcoin.

I would think that smaller website starting to use Bitcoin will be a good think. Like Maplins and other tech shops, that are indirectly assist Bitcoins growth.

Also maybe one of the governments actually making a speech including Bitcoin would help, just the snap out the humours that they are just hiding away from it, hoping it will faze out.

Hm. At some point, I'm going to move and rent my house out. I'll post an ad in Craigslist stating the price in BTC, with no mention of $. We'll see what happens.

Yeah... What'll happen, though, is that I'll end up renting to some miner who will cause my house to get flagged as a grow house due to power consumption, and the cops will kick in the door and mess up my property.

What I really think is harder to acquire with bitcoins, it's not physical items, as soon as someone from Japan falls in love with bitcoins and realizes he could buy and resell for profit, it's done.

Besides poetrol/gasoline I don't know but, what will be more dificult to have with bitcoins are, actual services. Lawyers, plumbers electricians. Hell, hair salons.

i have mentioned it in a few other threads but here it goes again

fast food outlets

namely ones which have web access food ordering portal where it gets delivered within the hour
most countries (weirdly not america) use these guys Just-eat.com

imagine it. you go to the website, click your national flag, type in your postcode/zipcode. Then find your favourite nearby fastfood restaurant in the list, select your food. Then on payment screen it offers bitcoins.

now wouldn't that be something.

anyone know of any good PR/Sales people that have experience of convincing businesses into adopting bitcoin? this could be your next project.

so far there has not been much attention due to the demograph of this forum mostly being american. but hopefully someone that lives near their regional offices, that has great bitcoin adoption skills/success, will take this idea on.

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at
