I've been thinking about this a alot...but does anyone have any conceptual ideas on how to create a coin that is only mineable by human energy?

I think such an alt coin would be more revolutionary than bitcoin, money is directly linked to the physicality of any individual...would this not make society more democratic if such a coin took off?

I know it's a crazy showerthought idea, but just curious as to the feasibility of such a thing?

oh! its simple, its called selling stuff you made, for some other stuff someone other made that you considered of equal value.

It have exists is the last tens of thousand years, and probably before that too.

Aside from the sarcasm, that doesn't address the question of whether or not it's possible to create a human only minable cryptocoin?

Yeah it may involve something like those mobile apps that count how many steps you do or something.  Tongue Tongue Tongue

That's what I was thinking, like maybe it give new gps coordinates based on your location and each gps coordinate is a random guess to some algorithm that statistically matches some number in the network x% of the time.

Devcoin is a step in that direction, its 'earned' by writing (but not directly mined by writing).

There have no mentioned of cryptocurrencies in the OP. But the short answer would be no, or simple barter.

Great idea but very difficult to do.  I can imagine insurance companies, sports companies and alt coiners all loving it!
I thought of something related to a cycling power meter, but it would be easy to fake..

Also from a social perspective such a design will cause people that work on physical jobs, and usually belong to lower-middle class, to catch up easier with the rest.
I mean a doctor will charge more of course for his services but a worker will have a larger return from mining  Cheesy

That's why it would be so revolutionary, can you imagine a system in which physical labor jobs actually pays more than white collar desk jobs?

I think one thing that a computer might not be able to do but might be easily verifiable by a computer is detect "human randomness"

Lol ahhh common...look I freely admit I havent a clue as to how it could work. But if you told me that a decentralized anonymous currency network could exist 10 years ago, I'm sure there would be more facepalms than the one in that picture.
