I wonder about printing a physical bitcoin at Shapeways, with the private key contained inside it.

The key could be a PGP armored printout, or whatever the equivalent is in bitcoinland.

Whoever handled it could not use the numbers.

This is probably unworkable.  I have had too much coffee.


I try to be respectful and informed.

Uh, printing the key inside so that you'll have to physically break it to see the code?  Huh

Yes.  Though now I think scratch 'n spend instead of 3D printing.
