It would be nice to have a custom linux distro  that could be installed on a usb key for using such things as freenet, bitcoin and tor.Could you transfer bitcoins by mail on the stick by using private key encryption to ensure the usb key is trusted?Would this be safer than posting money orders,cheques or cash for payment?Could you set your payment to expire after a certain time period so that if the usb key was lost or unclaimed you could have your bitcoins returned ?It seems that since the network knows the history of each bitcoin it would know if they have been redeemed or not.



Does any of this make any sense Huh

A guy on onionforurms who calls himself "shrew" has an OS called shrew OS. It is almost exactly what you are describing. It is FreeBSD based, rock solid, has I2P/Tor/Freenet on it. Someone needs to convince him to bundle Bitcoin with it and it will really rock.

Sounds like most of the work has been done already!

Something along these lines is exactly the type of thing I'm looking for! How do we get in touch with this Shrew guy?  I'm not too familiar with Tor/I2P and the like yet.  Can we reach him on the normal internet?

Yeah, I just went into both the Tor and I2P networks and couldn't find him anywhere.  I guess that's the problem with privacy oriented people developing mainstream solutions...you can never find them Wink

Here's his site:

http://xqz3u5drneuzhaeo.onion/users/shew/

(Over the regular internet by proxy: https://www.awxcnx.de/cgi-bin/proxy3/nph-proxy.cgi/000000A/http/xqz3u5drneuzhaeo.onion/users/shew/ )

For those paranoids there's a distro called Amnesia,
ready to run thru TOR even from a mobile-virtual-box.
