Apologize if this has already been discussed here. ...couldn't find it.

Do you think it would help promote Bitcoin if we started writing www.bitcoin.org or something on fiat bills we have in our wallets and circulate in our respective countries? I mean just take a pencil and write that on the bills in our pockets...

Is writing on fiat bills illegal, or makes them worthless in Your country?

Using national currency notes for any kind of advertising is illegal in most countries.

Might still be a good idea since it isn't possible to prove that you're the one that stamped them

True.

Plus it'd be totally worth it.
You get fined for stamping bills on bitcoins ? It will be free advertising, you'll probably make the amount of the fine with the mere increase of value of your BTCs Cheesy

The stamp has to be small, though.  Otherwise it might be difficult to have the note be accepted by marchands.

I propose a Bitcoin symbol, with a very short slogan, such has:

"stop central banks, visit www.bitcoin.org"

Written in very very small characters.

PS. hum, I wonder if we could not just give 5EUR notes or 1$ notes to poor people.

Or just spend them where people won't care.
Deposit them at the bank, if the numbers are visible they won't say anything.

I doubt so.  If the note is marked somehow, I think they can refuse it.

In Brazil is not so rare to find reais bills with an entire prayer written on it... I guess a short phrase + URL would not be a problem at all. Cheesy

It might be counterproductive to say something inflammatory. The more we try to antagonize the powers that be, the sooner they will attack us. Let's just stop them, without telegraphing our intent...

Plus, the people seeing it, might jump to an incorrect, prejudicial conclusion...

I think it would be useful to arouse people's interest and curiosity, and actually prompt them to go to the site to find out what it is. Bitcoin will do the rest automagically...

Or arouse people's self-interest, with something like "free payments www.bitcoin.org", or "instant money transfers www.bitcoin.org", etc...

Sounds too much like what companies such as Paypal, MoneyGram or whatever could say.

However, you're right about being too inflammatory.

What about:

"Check out the new decentralized digital currency on www.bitcoin.org"

?

in the same spirit:

"This is just a piece of paper.  If you want real money, visit bitcoin.org"
