I've hidden about 50 fliers with two instawallet addresses on two versions of the fliers...

No one has claimed thed bitcoins yet.... haha

How user friendly is the paper wallet?

I personnaly have not used one yet, but will look into it when I am on a computer (on the bus right now)

If anyone is near Ohio, USA, feel free to find some of Team_Little_Bear's caches & you'll be rewarded with some bitcoin.

CampBX for buying BTCs, Coinbase for selling BTCs or Vircurex for trading alternate cryptocurrencies like DOGEs

nice. the thing about these bills is they really look good. you can swipe them with the gox app so if you know your tools it is very user friendly. probably it would be a good idea to add this info (maybe on the back side).

I have not yet found a way to check the balance other than copy past from qr code scanner app to browser & blockexplorer.

Perhaps it was deleted under this TOS violation?  Grin

Sounds to me like a new geocaching enterprise may be in order. One based on Bitcoin and advertisers, thus truly making it worthwhile for the masses to get involved.

Can't fiat be considered a political concern? If so, then hiding a penny would violate their TOS. You can't get a more larger agenda then that of money, can you?

Here is my idea for Geocaching / treasure hunt.  I've always wanted to do it but just don't have time, especially since I dove into Solavei 100%.

I wanted bury a thumb drive somewhere with the wallet on it.

Then have a website that gave clues ect.  Rent out advertising space on the website... take some of that advertising $$ and keep adding to the amount that is on the thumb drive (or any other medium to store btc's on).  Even if its at the bottom of a lake somewhere.  If the amount gets high enough, people will be putting on scuba suits. 

Someone do this. (not sure if this was mentioned in the thread, didn't read it all)

cool idea. could be done with a paper wallet, too.

also rising bitcoin price could add motivation.

I made a post in the Project Development section of this forum.  I am not doing an open Alpha of my Bitcoin geocaching game.  Its is called BitScavenger and can be found at http://bitscavenger.net.

Here is the post from the other forum:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=182212.0

I have been in crunch mode trying to work out all the bugs that I completely forgot that it would be a good idea to have some geocaches set up before announcing the game.  I will try to get some set up in my home town of Austin TX so you can see that the app works.  There is so much I want to do with this, but before I get ahead of myself, please give me feedback on how well the core concept works.

Hey guys,

new to geo-cacheing for bitcoin. visiting a few places in CA (yep, as the x-governor would say Cal-leaf-forn-ya) where i can find the coins relativeyl easy, but the questions don't seem related to the location. i.e. i get into one residential street, pure houses, and the question is: "what company would you buy from here?". Huh tried everything, street names, numbers, couldn't pick up the coins. same for a bunch of others. Huh

any suggestions?

thanks

I'm the OP of this thread (changed my nick years ago). Back when I started this thread I put some btc in a geocache in San Francisco's Lincoln Park. They were never recovered. I'll give you a big hint to finding them. Standing at the geocache you can see the golf course clubhouse, the Legion of Honor and the Golden Gate Bridge. As far as I can tell it's the only geocache in the park where you can see all three from one spot.

Good luck

BTW: I put them there when btc wasn't worth as much. There are two whole coins in that cache.

Yes, you must have found it. One is at Lincoln and has directions to the other downtown. Congrats!
