Abe Vigoda


This is exactly what I was going to suggest. I can't believe he's still alive, and with a movie coming out to boot. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1464762/

Ugh.  I'm not in favour of the Gnu at all.

It has a strong association with a certain virally incompatible licensing system - which thankfully not much software in the Bitcoin world uses.

Even if (unlike me) you are a fan of the Gnu philosophy - why would you want it associated with Bitcoin?

How is it even relevant to Bitcoin?

I think gnu has been vital in the development of software technology, but I do see how it presents issues to this project. Keep in mind that many of the utilities used for cryptography in bitcoin related software are gnu based.

Why has no one suggested Bill Cosby?



At the very least, use a shot of something who's smiling or otherwise happy. No matter how noble or respectable the subject, every piece of currency always has someone who looks like a log was stuck either going in or coming out. Bitcoin is a system that mostly manages itself, freeing people up to live their lives, so a symbol of joy and a live-and-let-live sentiment would be a genuine and welcome change.

Bethany McLean - for Exposing Enron and Financial Fraud
Ron Paul - For Being 1st politican wanting to return to honest money
Max Keiser - For being 1st mainstream newsman promoting bitcoin
Thomas Jefferson - For exposing the dangers of bankers
Andrew Jackson - For Ending the Bank
Peter Schiff - For promoting solid money.

But I rather not have a person on it at all.

I'm surprised to not see this photoshopped yet. That round thing in the background could surely be turned into something Bitcoin related.

How about instead of people, we put cryptographic puzzles, that when solved can be rewarded with a bitcoin prize? That way you could get some interesting designs on the bills, the community would be excited about it and you wouldn't have people on them!

Although Lady Gaga and Bill Cosby are unquestionably more qualified, Pierre de Fermat is my suggestion (if dead guys are allowed on the list) for his famous Last Theorem. He was amongst the first after Diophantus to study elliptic equations (sometimes referred to as elliptic "curves", used in bitcoin cryptography) with significant contributions.

Excellent suggestion. This is more what I am looking for.

What if we put graphics cards on them, or enigma machines, or Phil Zimmerman, the guy who invented PGP keys

He was amongst the first after Diophantus to study elliptic equations (sometimes referred to as elliptic "curves", used in bitcoin cryptography) with significant contributions.

Excellent suggestion. This is more what I am looking for.

That being the case, I present you with the following:

1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
8 7 5 1 2 4 ...
9 9 9 9 9 9 ...
1 4 7 1 4 7 ...
8 4 2 1 5 7 ...
9 9 9 9 9 9 ...
1 7 4 1 7 4 ...
8 1 8 1 8 1 ...
9 9 9 9 9 9 ...
. . . . . . . . ...
. . . . . . . . ...
. . . . . . . . ...

The use of the ellipses signifies that the number pattern repeats to the left as well as downward.

Without the ellipses, you have:

1 1 1 1 1 1
8 7 5 1 2 4
9 9 9 9 9 9
1 4 7 1 4 7
8 4 2 1 5 7
9 9 9 9 9 9
1 7 4 1 7 4
8 1 8 1 8 1
9 9 9 9 9 9

Anybody here capable of solving this matrix by putting it into an equation would, most likely, become famous.

The above is related to the post I've quoted. If perplexed, ask me what it's all about. Although it would warrant its own thread for the further discussion it'll ensue.
