Yes, this is just a silly pointless thing.

For 0.05 BTC I'll mail a mystery envelope anywhere in the US.  Who knows what it will contain?  An arby's coupon?  An autographed picture of Abe Vigoda?  A hundred dollar bill?  Even I don't know!  All I can guarantee is that it will not be empty, it will contain up to 1 oz of material, and it will fit in a standard #10 envelope.

As I said, it's a silly pointless thing, but it might be a good way to conduct your first BTC for real-world-goods deal if you don't have a lot of bitcoins.

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

Up to 1 oz. of material from silkroadmarket would be one hell of a deal.  Sorry for being dense, but if you're mailing it, how the hell won't you know what's in it?

And yet, I am amused...

Reminds me of the Family Guy where Peter takes the mystery box instead of the boat.

If they're not able to do international envelopes, I will.  But I want to give the original poster a chance first.

Postage to Belgium looks like it's about .1 BTC, so .15BTC will get you a mystery envelope.
