I would add a small feature to your draft Atlas; have also a SMS or WAP service to lookup the serials.

Scratchpad looks cooler but then it can only be transferred once. With a fold over cover it could go through multiple hands before being redeemed.

Surely not? The QR code would only be needed to access the BTC in the block chain - when that is done, the printed note becomes invalid.

One thing to keep in mind is this is likely to be highly illegal pretty much anywhere. At the very least any government would want you to register to handle financial transactions. At worst, they'll see this as a paper currency issued by Atlas. CYA.

The thing is, is that the checks are supposed to be designed for people who want to use BitCoin but do not have the technological requirements to use it, if they did, they might as well just download the client.

If there is a scratchpad, then that provides confidence that the note has definitely not been redeemed and can be circulated in trade with confidence, where here the only person they need to trust is the issuer of the check, and not the handler of them.

This would require kiosks being set up, true enough, but certainly more secure than just printing this stuff out. Printing checks out would only be useful if you were going to give them to the person you wish to deposit your BitCoins with, like real checks, instead of a sort of check-book money alternative.

I like the scratchcard idea.
* ptmhd too

i was promoting it as well a few days ago. anyway i also promote the idea of separating pvt key and amount when printing.

scenario:
i already have a printout of a key so i (publicly) distribute the address to collect payments to that address
 i hold the key already.

in such case the printed value would not match the balance stated

and publishing pvt key is no-no.

@atlas, good luck anyway. 1:10 chance the idea will take off

People either like an idea or they don't. The only way to find out is to put it out there.

I don't want to reveal it until I have it fully fleshed out. The doubters will rip it to shreds otherwise. : P

Heh. Alright, it's not really patentable anyways.

I have my eye on some cheap cell-phone grade hardware. I would like to see it turned into a minimalist's laptop. It would do text, email and RSS with a battery life lasting for more than a day. That's the dream that I see as an amazing potential product if it can be made under $100.

It would be mainly marketed to writers, obviously. I want one myself.

Why not print the note on a bleached FRN? Not stiff enough to support scratch-off paint, but invisible ink will work. Wink

Use my Trade Hill referral code: TH-R11519

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

N900! Although that is more than 100 USD...

The screen is small and the keyboard is cramped. I want my device to have one of the best full-size keyboards on the market.

Connect a keyboard via bluetooth and video out to an hdtv.

How can you warranty that there's no double-spending without having the client waiting in the shop for an hour until the transaction is verified?
Maybe I'm missing something.

2 different forms of free-money: Freicoin (free of basic interest because it's perishable), Mutual credit (no interest because it's abundant)
