Time to get back to the deal.

Personally, I adore the idea of the single bitcoin being distributed in a traceable way, but there weren't that many proposals on it (at least for what I expected).
So it's not like: "I will add it to my wallet and will buy/develop/gamble from the pool". Sure, any development can lead to really cool things, but it's not the main point here. There's no problem with taking half of BTC to yourself and using the rest for a bigger purpose, however there were not that many deep proposals on it.


I've selected these favorites, and to make it a bit harder for a final winner, I'll ask to prove their points. So, guys, if you care, please give more details on how you are going to do it and prove it with blockchain/timelog etc.:

I like it so far - still ready to do it? Would you share some details on the process?

Would you care to create a plan for that?

Sounds cool, just how can you prove? Smiley

Could you elaborate on how the plugin is going to function? So far it's a bit vague.

And thanks to everyone else too!

I'd forgotten about this. It's been a long time -- quite a lot has happened since I posted here (see my sig, LOL). I'm actually in the process of giving away 20 BTC as "marketing expenses" (special offer) to new users on my new China exchange -- and dealing with all the upfront losses as a result.

I'd still be up for this though -- I won't turn down 1BTC. :-) Obviously I have a vested interest. Here's how I'd do it...

Have you heard about the current Chinese 'Gold Rush'? I'd print out 2,000* high quality flyers and give them to people / leave them lying around outside Shanghai's big gold shops, and to a lesser extent around the business district.

The flyer would be printed on glossy paper, double sided. Top side would be about Bitcoin and how it is "Gold 2.0". The bottom side would be "how to buy", but would include directions for my exchange :-)

* The quantity would be such that the total cost would be 2BTC -- I'd double your money. I might have to include expenses for handing them out though, as flyposting here is quite high-risk. If after the first day I deemed it too risky, I'd pay someone else to do it for me.




So BitPirate if you haven't printed the flyers yet - you are the winner. 
Just one thing: I would like to get some proof, could you post some photos of the flyers or something similar here? In that case please give me your address.

Bitcoin is physical.
Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a higher transaction fee.

I would out it towards buying a piece of land with a operating gold mine, I would then run the machines required with wind turbines etc. This is a VERY expensive way to start off, but something which I have always wanted to do. I would be willing to hire workers with Bitcoin, however only to people in the local area. (Not yet figured out where to locate the business).
I still have a long  way to go, however everything gets me a little closer to my goal. I'm going to be buying some land very soon, I have a few people who I have been in contact with. I have been researching for a few years now.

When I have some idea on the landscape of the area, I will then finalise some of my designs/plans This could potentially be very profitable in the long run, hard work but that's right down my street. Like I said, I have researched a lot into this, and have know how to actually put my plans into order.

The wind turbines would be powered by solar panels. I already know not to expect a profit within the first 3 years, however my estimated calculations say that I would be able to break even within 5 years if everything goes to plan. Of course these are only estimates and may not be accurate, could take less or more time.

I know it's not the best idea, but I think it's a unique idea to everyone who has posted, it would be friendly to our environment (Not fully first of all). I actually am going to do with one of my family members, who actually has experience with this sort of work. (Except the solar panels etc.)

I would send it to the POTUS Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam accompanied by a letter outlining it's potential.

I would have offered the bitcoin on a 7 day eBay auction to the bidder with the most creative idea.

OK, cool! Thanks very much. Let me talk to the other half and get back to you with the flyer design...
