Ironically, one of the leading ideas for the use of MintChip in the MintChip Challenge is to purchase bitcoin with it since it’s irreversible.

Now at 95 votes. As far as for the also rans, Bitcoin can theoretically or currently do all the below.

Quote
A digital currency can be used for Quickly and easily paying for your morning coffee fix. Streamlining your order and getting you on your way faster. (31 votes)

A digital currency can be used for allowing groups to easily split purchases. For example, you could order pizza, then use an app to have everyone pay equally (26 votes)

A digital currency can be used for quick pay transactions like bus fairs, taxis, parking meters, convenience stores and pay@pump gas stations (19 votes)

A digital currency can be used for micro-payments for digital goods. We could easily pay citizen journalists and musicians for the work they post online. (17 votes)

Holy crap there was actually what is IMO a very good idea on there that had nothing to do with bitcoin. as follows:

"A digital currency can be used for aggregating loose change. Change counting machines could load up your MintChip rather than print a slip that you need to exchange"

If someone built one that issued btc for loose change (and kept a little spread as profit) that would be an awesome way for people to get into bitcoin with practically zero investment of their money (scrap change) or time (the machine is right in front of them). It could issue a little qr code that they scan with their phone and installs a light weight smart phone wallet that contains their balance.

I would use it.

BTW i do not see anything about bitcoin on the first page of this mintchip ideas page http://ideas.mintchipchallenge.com/ so bitcoin either fell dramatically from the top spot, or the mintchip moderators removed it by force(please note: i did zero due diligence on this one (I'm drinking)). also suspect is that the comment count on all ideas now shows as 0 (on google chrome at least) what up wit dat?

Try sorting by number of votes rather than by date (this is why you shouldn't post when drinking).

never mind all i had to do was use the dropdown menu (I'm drinking) and make the appropriate selection. bitcoin is still the most popular idea with 96 votes, with an idea for digital currency being "able to be used to buy coffee" with 31 votes. So bitcoin presently enjoys a significant margin of winningness.

PS: just checked out some of the comments for the brilliant "buy coffee" 31 votes, second place idea. It would seem there is considerable controversy over some alleged internet forum voter fraud (check for yourself http://ideas.mintchipchallenge.com/submissions/6784-a-digital-currency-can-be-used-for-quickly-and-easily-paying-for-your-morning-coffee-fix-streamlining-your-order-and-getting-you-on-your-way-faster? )  I will be following this topic closely and tweeting any updates, as I know this matter is of little importance to anyone.

but look at the comments on the coffee one.  those votes came out of NOWHERE and like 100% of the comments are flaming the submitter and basically all those votes don't count. 

"Just because a vote appears on the site does not mean it is an eligible vote. We check votes via a wide variety of criteria at the end of the challenge and fraudulent votes won't be counted."

I wish the recycling centre paid out bitcoins for aluminium cans and scrap metal in the same fashion Smiley

For sake of argument, let's say that the Bitcoin suggestion is on of the top 25 submissions. What are the chances that the judges won't include it in the top 10?

http://ideas.mintchipchallenge.com/rules
Quote
4. Winner Selection: The twenty-five (25) Submissions that receive the most verified and confirmed votes will be declared finalists (the “Finalists”). The Finalists will then have their Submissions judged on the following three criteria:

a. Quality of the idea;
b. Feasibility of implementation; and
c. Potential impact on MintChip offerings and electronic payment technology.

5. The ten (10) Finalists whose Submissions score the highest by the judging panel will become potential winner of a Top 10 Prize (as defined in greater details hereinafter).

a. It's clearly a brilliant idea.
b. Bitcoin/MintChip exchanges will likely spring up within a day of MintChip being released.
c. Ah, well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad! Cheesy
