Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

This just gave me an idea, and I don't really know why this popped into my head when I read the OP, but it might be fun to start putting bitcoin wallets (printed private keys) in geocache locations with a few bitcoins in the wallet.  If you hid it in a good spot, and it isn't found for a long time, the person who ultimately finds it could be very, very lucky (or just end up with a worthless piece of paper, depending on the future value).

I like this idea. Would you be so kind as to start a new tread since it's your idea? Geocaching is an established niche market.

Thanks for that. I tried feebly to get one of those payouts using the default client on a LiveCD (can't compile). It made me realize how limited the default client really is. The problem of transferring coins from a "tainted" private key made me realize it is possible to build a wallet-less miner as well.

A miner just needs to know an address to send the coins to as well as a source of entropy (such as intermittent network connections). The miner then generates a throw-away private key/address pair. Upon coin creation, the coins are spent in the same transaction block to the destination address. As has been noted in other threads, the destination wallet does not even have to be on an Internet-connected computer.
Edit: To avoid refunded coins (and a non-empty virtual wallet), Transaction fees should be payed out of fees paid to the miner in the transaction block; likely (approximating) a user-configurable percentage. Errata: miner processing the transaction can decide which transactions are included or not: no fees necessary.

Cool. If you are going to continue it though, the whole point was to use the script to test it. Then post it here. Then we can see how much it was tested.

Just consider the other post an alternate chain.   Here's a continuation of the original BOTG.... using both versions of the code posted:

If you posted the data.pem file after the script it won't match. The data in data.pem is pretty much useless after. Rather than delete the file the script overwrites it with another key in case someones distribution is saving to disk. I'll edit the script to delete it after the write over in case people who look for it thinking it's useful.
