Yes. The proper move is to give everyone you know bitcoins, instead of "stuff".

I actually, for the first time ever, decided not to buy anyone any Christmas presents this year. Tomorrow, all my friends and family will get the option of the money of the past, present, or future. Everyone gets the option of a 1oz silver coin, a fifty dollar bill *CDN, or 0.1 bitcoin . What do you think? Stupid idea?

Anyhow, have a very merry Christmas everyone!

Good idea.  Wish I would have thought of that.

Merry Christmas to all!  Don't forget the important things in life and let's all be grateful for what we have, which is more than someone else. In other words there is always someone worse off than you!

I have a couple paper wallets to hand out as impromptu gifts; but mostly only to people who are already semi-aware of BTC and just haven't made the leap to try it out.

An ornament wouldn't hurt either.

HODL!

Psst!!  Wanna make bitcoin unstoppable? Why the Only Real Way to Buy Bitcoins Is on the Streets. Avoid banks and centralized exchanges.   Buy/Sell coins locally.  Meet other bitcoiners and develop your network.   Try localbitcoins.com or find or start a buttonwood / satoshi square in your area.  Pass it on!

Good idea.  Wish I would have thought of that.

That's actually really cool. I'd be curious to know what people will have picked the most!

Thanks for the kind words, unfortunately it was complete failure. (well, not totally complete, 2 people, out of 20, took the bitcoin option - no one took the silver coin option (was offering their choice of any of the Canadian wildlife series *except the wolves* - quite glad actually that there were no takers.))

Things I learned:

When you give people a choice, they are almost paralyzed by the responsibility of making a decision.

There is a lot of negative sentiment regarding bitcoin among people who have no bitcoin. After a very short curiosity phase, there was much snide remarks and eye-rolling. Everyone seems to think it's a scam and it's too good to be true... and they might be right.

Long, painful story short, things started to get contentious and I ended up just handing out the 50's and when some refused saying "oh you don't have to do that" or "No, that's too much" I just said "Let's just say I had a very good year." and forced those dirty bills into their hands.


Conclusion: Moving forward, I will not be offering any bitcoin to anyone that does not specifically ask for bitcoin.

Still was an interesting experiment. Merry Christmas to all, and I hope Santa brought you everything you'd hoped for.
