This only makes sense if the idea of a ring is to be valuable instead of to represent an engagement/marriage and/or look pretty. Maybe the sort of people that wear grills and bling will be into this? But not as an engagement ring.
They don't advertise it as an engagement ring, but that's what everyone seems to assume it is.

You may need to find another girlfriend after doing this. Are you both into cryptocurrencies? Otherwise it may just appear to be something eerie and strange.

Its a cool idea, although I would never wear something like that.  It is definitely interesting though.   People could draw other ideas off of that too (like putting barcode on the backside of their watch or something)

It's a niche area for Bitcoin I guess and I can see a lot of people wanting this service since they'll be earning quite a bit from Bitcoin.

Update, this website doesn't work. I can't see a way to get an .stl file for my address or any other. Yes, my gf is into crypto and she said if I load two months salary on the ring she'll wear it.  Cheesy

Hey guys, I am the creator of the theBTCring.com. I'm just letting you know I am serious about making a reasonable version of everything. The site is still under construction and I am working on the "next iteration" which will include a better/sturdier ring.

Two months of salary on a ring finger could get some people mugged for their ring

Hopefully after time they will be able to make the ring prettier somehow. I realize that put your QR code on it is pretty difficult, while still trying to make it look wearable, but idk any girl that would wear that. I might put it on when I go to a BTC related event or conference, but other than that it will stay at home. The commercial made me laugh though. I even tweeted about it, lol. @cryptokenzi

I was planning on buying my girlfriend an engagement ring with bitcoins. I doubt I would buy the one from OP's posts since it doesn't look that great Tongue. The idea is awesome though.

As much as I love Bitcoin and Crypto, my wife would not say "Yes" if I proposed to her with that minecraft ring.

She'd probably throw it in ocean, smack me upside the head, then leave me in Aruba when I proposed to her 7 years ago.

Women are silly like that...aesthetics matter to them!   Grin

Hmmm? How is this a minecraft ring? It is just a Bitcoin ring, or rather a ring with a bitcoin address in form of a QR-code.
I find it hard to believe that men don't care for aesthetics. I mean, come on... seriously?
Eheheh... My wife has a >$2k wedding/engagement ring (I have no idea why most people buy multiple rings) specifically made to look "subtle" (actually, I ended up calling it "industrial"). However, I have a $7 stainless steel band from Amazon (it was the second-cheapest and Prime-eligible -- the cheapest had chinese characters on it), and I'm quite fond of it. It gives me something to twiddle in my hands and have on anywhere without worry. It looks quite "normal" for a wedding band and if I lose it - no problem. Though her ring does look quite nice, I think, I believe I'm getting much more enjoyment out of my ring than she is, which she's worried about wearing anywhere or losing. TBH, though, I was hoping the jeweler who made the first ring for BTC would make me some titanium or stronger ones (he seemed very mildly offended and suggested I check out a bike shop).... It would be nice to have such strong rings on my fingers so if a tree were to fall on my hand, the rings and ground would help cushion the blow and maybe prevent me from totally losing my hand. Since it's raised from the fingers, it can prevent or significantly reduce damage from all sorts of injuries... the kitchen especially comes to mind.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

I don't really get why you would want to get money involved with this?
Money is involved either way.  Diamonds aren't cheap, you know.

At least with a BTC ring you can e.g. use a 2 of 3 multisig wallet, give her a key (telling her it's a 2 of 2!) and keep the third key yourself. Cheesy

I don't care that much for diamonds, either. But at least they're considered beautiful by a majority of people. This thing looks rather clunky Cheesy
Oh and cheating your spouse at the time of the marriage isn't a very good foundation for a long-lasting relationship, I guess  Grin Grin

Totally agree with you.
As a male geek, I could't appreciate such a ring either. An important part of the value of a diamond ring is to be shown off in a party. How could one show off a stupid QR code?
An easy improvement is to create an ordinary ring, and put the QR code at the bottom (if it's big enough). If someone is interested, the owner can take it off and show the QR code.

Had a friend who was like this - except for expensive watches. He was always kind of scared that someone would rob him - esp at night when he was partying and so forth.

@OP: I have to say I really dislike the design - it looks way too cheesy - trying too hard to somehow shove a Bitcoin address on the ring. It's not as elegant or clean as a normal wedding ring to be brutally honest. Guys, lets be serious here, not everything in the world has to be about Bitcoin. You don't see people walking around with a ring showing off USDs on it do you.

Whoah, didn't expect this thread to get resurrected! Creator of the ring here! First of all, check out the latest version of the ring at TheBTCRing.com, made in silver! It looks MUCH better than the original.
Make sure to check out the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tMetT6-dxc

Also, this bitcoin project made *****ENGADGET*****!
http://www.engadget.com/2015/05/21/a-bitcoin-engagement-ring/

This was made the for Coinbase Bithack. Yes, this project is serious!

I mean the idea is perfect for a nerd proposing to another nerd. But it's hard to find female nerd in this community so I guess g*y proposal might suit it very much.

But can't say that I don't like the innovation.
