Seems like a good motto for our favourite cryptocurrency. Here's my take on an icon with the phrase inline:

   

And here's the original bitcoin.svg (done in Inkscape).

Did I just make an awesome? Maybe if you send some coins to 1BZYH24gDB5KZfr3fh2LahkqbYrGppZTPS right away, I can be conditioned to do more of that!

Making snowclones of the U.S. motto is a bit overused, tbh. Let's try Latin* instead:

quod latet, libera est (What lies hidden is free)

Google translate does latin in case anyone wants to try

*I'm shit at Latin; Cue Monty Python references

Sorry, i disagree with any promotion of BTC that implies we have something to hide, ie, the "crypto" part.

Crypto isn't only for hiding things. It also makes it VERY hard to steal other peoples coins, fake coins, it's what makes Bitcoin work. It all depends on cryptology.

You would probably offend a large portion of the USA with that slogan. Probably not the best idea for promotion techniques.

The USD is not backed by "God".

If you go with Latin I'd put the translation of:
open,secure,of the people
patefacio , tutis , publicus  Undecided
I like it but whats a better word for open?

How about emphasising the decentralized nature of a p2p currancy?
iunctum in divortium (unity in division)
or
tribuo nos sto (divided we stand)  Cool

How proficient are you in Latin? It's been a while (to say the least) since I studied it, but isn't "to stand" in the plural 1st properly declinated "stamus"? "tribuo" sounds suspect as well.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

i totally understand.  in fact i love the cryptography, anonymity too, but i'm looking at it from a marketing aspect to the masses and esp. our gov't.

I see the reference to Cryptography to be no different than saying "In Mathematics we trust" (as cryptography is a branch of mathematics). It's a science in one of the purest forms. That's why it becomes an interesting play on the antithesis "In God we trust" as the purest form of faith.

My next favourite so far is "Unity in division" by deadlizard. It's not quite as self-explanatory though, which I suppose lends itself more to latinization. If it was a concise understandable statement, I'd keep it in english.

I think latin is much better than english. Who would wants to associate the Bitcoin with only the english-speaking world? Even tough latin may be associated with the holy guys in rome... Can't we use icons like there are on these space probes? ;-)

I think since it is called BITcoin, we should try to encode something in binary on the coin, no? Maybe like a barcode when 0 and 1 take too much space. And it can be in big- and little endian on the opposite sides :-)
