Sad not. Can't narrow it down to the forum, can I?

But more on topic: I could imagine kids trading their bitcoins like they traded stickers. Especially in countries where they all have smart phones. I love the idea Smiley

Anything you can do in a google search, you can do in a google alert... so add "site:bitcointalk.org" and you should be good to go.

Bitcoins for allowance = awesome parenting!

I merely suggested it, but I think I have created a monster.. you should hear them complain when they have to spend them low and receive them high. Often I (jokingly) threaten to take their Bitcoins away if they don't get As and Bs or something and they start screaming NOOOOoooo lol

Good stuff!
Just curious, what do they spend their bitcoins on?

When I was in 4th grade, I wanted things like foam airplanes, and candybars.  Smiley

Guys... I cannot express that a huge smashing success this presentation was. It knocked my socks off..



The kids had so many questions... Three really kinda shocked me... (paraphrasing..)

#1: When you send Bitcoins around the world, do they go up through a satellite and back down the other side?

I stumbled on this one for a little bit because I wasn't prepared to teach 4th graders about asymmetric eliptical curve cryptogaphy and message hashing. LOL.. They put me on the spot, so I dont recall exactly how I answered. Something about the Bitcoins dont really "go" anywhere, you're just using cryptographic keys to sign off amounts everyone knows you have. Sigh.

#2: What happens if you don't want a Bitcoin address anymore? Can you just delete it?

Wow. Um, well you can forget it exists and never use it again... I somehow got into the example of being able to create thousands of keys at a time and delete those and a little about how it relates to being anonymous.

#3: Can you make Bitcoin addresses anything you want (besides those long ugly strings)?

I told them about VanityGen and being able to specify a string of text you want in your keys when you create them.

There were so many more really awesome questions, but it's all a blur now.

But the bottom line, I think I've found a new passtime and audience. The teacher was equally impressed and I'm positive this will get around to the rest of the faculty and I'll be invited back to do it with other classes from 4th through 12th.

Getting bombarded with all these questions from little skulls full of mush was an outrageously exciting experience. MOAARRR!!

Maybe you guys aren't parents, or haven't been paying attention to the news lately, but recording kids is an order of magnitute more lethal than recording police officers in public or public buildings. Sorry, but unfortunately, that's pretty much not going to happen.

Tipped you a coin. This is awesome!

I remember as a youth (maybe 2nd grade) we went on a field trip to the local bank and they taught us how to fill out checks which we then cashed and bought ice cream with on the way back to school.

We are indoctrinating kids now? Bitcoin is officially a cult.

You are an idiot. So I guess teaching kids math is cultish too? Die in a fire.

When I was a kid, a large bank got class time to come and indoctrinate us into the way of banking.
It was a bit of a scam - because the special 'kids' bank accounts they gave us were insulated from reality by not having fees.
It came as a bit of a shock as a teenager to find my few dollars whittled away. I wish they'd just been honest from the outset.

Similarly - I cringe when people promote Bitcoin as 'no fees'.  We need to be upfront about it. Especially to kids. They remember little dishonesties like that - and might hate bitcoin like I hate the banks for it!
