I was sitting here conversing with a friend who was on facebook while I was sending a bitcoin .
What if instead of a bitcoin address my friends face was in the bitcoin client and I could just choose who to send a payment to by their profile picture.
Imagine poking someone by sending a coin which showed up with your face on their client so they recognise the sender by their profile pic.
Replace sending bitcoins with "poking" and bitcoin addresses with your friends faces. Just imagine when you choose your friend by face and attach a virtual gift and it was sent to your friend. You could buy a virtual chicken in your client or web app and send it to your friends farm where they could lock it in a yard lol
If your client remembered that the chicken was worth 10 bitcoins when you sent the chicken later it would send the same amount of coins....because it is bitcoins your chicken is now more valuable against the USD . People would look after their virtual gifts because they had value . One day you might be able to buy a car irl with a virtual chicken !
Or maybe I just have too much time on my hands and should stop dreaming about feeding virtual chickens.
tl:dr feed my virtual chicken here 16SFNzAdkTEmZwQyHYFF8G3fQchSpxaGwZ
