not sure if this is the right place to post it; I didn't find any subforum for bitcoin art.



sorry about jpeg compression.

I like it! Looks very well suited to scare the 'oh noes the evil hackers have to be watched upon' gawker crowd  Cheesy

Is there a high res copy?  Wink
Now we need it to be able to be printed with a wallet in a high res qr-code to actually make it worth one btc..

we'd need to make it less us dollar like to not be brought up on counterfitting charges but printing something like that would be possible, some tools currently in development would allow the wallet addresses to be populated and printed, they could be made avilable to anyone to print their own money! except it'd actually be better not that way with a few trusted individuals printing them and a mechanisim to indicate if they were redeemed on them (casscius coins holograms?

Wow! This is a controversy!
Now bitcoin has a physical form...  Smiley

Not sure if you were being sarcastic..(?)
In case you're unaware.. look up bitbills and casascius coins for some genuine bitcoins in physical form.
(can be destructively opened to reveal private key which can then be used to access the value on the network)

i should warn people, DO NOT TRY TO MAKE THESE AND PASS THEM OFF AS BITCOIN CURRENCY.

it is a federal crime to do so because it looks like federal reserve notes.

It should be a crime for money to be such an ugly green in the first place.

not very high resolution; the native image is here: http://bitcointimes.tumblr.com/post/11246451688  (click on the image)

note that the green letters are the first bits of an existing bitcoin address : http://firstbits.com/?a=1PK8UVNyHc

You both are right.
If you print it on paper, I suggest to remap colors first, replacing green with blue or pink.
It will be both legal and cute.

Nice picture!
It would be nice to distribute printed versions of it in protests like this OccupyWallStreet.

I think it would be a very bad idea.  Almost guaranteed that someone tries to use one (universal rule people are dumb and in a large group one person will be in the 10% decile).  Even worse would be if the merchant doesn't notice and it gets to a bank.

The Secret Service is rather diligent about these things.  Even if nothing happens it will create bad press.  Everyone knows how the press manipulates and distorts the story to gain rating.  Anyone think a story about counterfeit bills promoting bitcoin at an anti-Wall street rally is going to be reported accurately and fairly?

Personally I wish the OP would change the design to look less like US currency.  Why do we want a bitcoin bill to resemble a fiat currency?

Print it on conventional paper that doesn't feel like money paper, make it larger than normal bills and, mainly, write a text on the other side explaining what bitcoin is and how to get more info about it, with links and QR codes. Also, explain that the bill is not a true bitcoin nor dollar.

With all that, not even small kids will mistake it for original dollar bills.

Haha, US is the world hegemony now, they go into any country they want. Even yours.

As for the "bill", I suppose it's nice, but I see no point to making it look like a USD.
