I thought of this the other day. Maybe high school cryptography or programming classes could be contacted or something. Kind of a "Look at this real world application of cryptography, oh by the way you might have noticed your national currency is going to collapse but this is secure" sort of thing. Where do smart teens hang out on the web?

We don't even have a cryptography topic in my AP computer science high school class.

Could you explain what you mean by the concept of earning bitcoins? Are you referring to BTC generation? I am an unemployed high-school student and will gladly accept any advice you can give for me to earn extra cash... Grin

Earning bitcoins by selling your services/goods.

Selling art and other materials on ubitio.us is easy assuming you find 3 downloader for each of your investment.

If you're a programmer, there's a few bounty laying around unclaimed. Otherwise, try fishing for people who want your programming service.

Script kiddies...

But anyway, not all smart teens hang out on hacker forums like this one or tech blogs, either.

You can sell any product or service for Bitcoins.   Programming work, language translation,  tutor services, even lawn care or babysitting.  
You can turn your local customers on to bitcoin by showing them http://bitcoinme.com
You can even get local businesses to accept bitcoin, and then set up your own little business exchanging bitcoin for cash, and vice versa.
Smart teens hang out on Facebook - like all teens.
Some of them listen to http://live.twit.tv

16 year old here. I introduced the concept to many friends and a whole class. No dice.

Interesting. Do they have objections, or just a lack of interest?

You need a certain understanding of how the world works, before you understand why something like bitcoin has advantages.
To (most) 16 year olds money is simply a means to buy stuff Smiley

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

Generally it was a lack of interest or a simple "Oh, that's cool." Save for the one autistic script kiddy who decided it would be an excellent idea to get bitcoin running on every computer in a lab. As far as I know, he's banned from the computers for the rest of the year. He probably didn't fully understand the concept anyways.

Give them a virtual world to hook them up to. Then they discover that play money is real money.

Give them a gateway that allows subscribing to porn sites using bitcoins, then they discover the true value of bitcoins... it's more than money, it's a great way to keep prying eyes away from your business, or at the very least heavily increase the barrier.

See, that's where I think the beauty of bitcoins lay... we don't have to play cop for anyone, it's the individual choice thing, I believe they call "freedom" or some other abstract meaningless word Smiley

disclaimer: I am a parent, I have an undisclosed number of teenage children, I understand your worries. I go around that by actually being there for my kids and talking openly to them... a crazy idea, I know!

Immanuel, YOU are here.    And that's what matters.   It's really cool that you are here.   How did YOU first hear about Bitcoin?

Maybe it would be more interesting to do a presentation to ADULTS...   They might be so impressed that this concept is being presented to them by a teen, that they might take an interest in trying it.

One selling point might be:   A new way to energize the local economy.    Local shops and merchants begin accepting Bitcoin, and keeping the money in the local community (mostly).

Even write up a News Story --- just as if YOU were a newspaper reporter, exactly as it would appear in a newspaper --- all about "Local Teenager Introducing Futuristic Money to Boost Local Economy".   Write the story.   Make it sound real newsy.   Then put the words, "PRESS RELEASE" on the top....  and "CONTACT DETAILS:" at the bottom along with your own email address and phone number.   Send it to every newspaper and local TV and radio station.   I'll bet money that one of them WILL run the story!

Hyperlocalism is for tree hugging hippie.
