Greetings!

I am pleased to announce my new idea!

The Bitcoin Bus
http://throughad.com/

Fill this bus up with your pixels. We will make sure it gets printed on a real bus! See example. Next time we do trains!

Use common sense with your selection. Do not buy pixels in the wheels for example. (This is a limitation of square pixels) I did my best to block-out unusable pixels

The way it works is that you click on Buy Pixels and choose if you want the left, right or back side of the bus. You can now select the pixels you want, by holding your mouse button down and dragging your mouse until you reach your preferred selection. Now click Continue >> You can now upload your image to the server. After this is done the system ask you to type in URL, Title and Alt values for your picture, you do not have to provide these, as you can select I will fill details later >> The only thing left is to enter your email address so the system can send you a payment bitcoin address.

You can bet on me standing ready with a camera for a lot of pictures, if we get the bus filled up!

looking forward to providing you with first rate service.

Own a piece of history!

Why do I get the feeling someone will eventually put CP on the bus. This will end badly.

very interesting idea

couple of things: you probably want to block-out unusable pixels and also would be useful to let users know pixels to inches ratio

Thank you!

I will see what I can do, but it will most probably be pixel to centimeter.

This has to happen. Count me in.

What's the total price needed to make it happen?

Seems like a good opportunity to do some bitcoin advertising. Maybe we could all pitch in for a large ad for bitcoin itself, prominently displayed on the side? It would be shame to have this filled up with random ads for bitcoin-related projects without a central bitcoin logo and something like a weusecoins.com or bitcoin.org link.

Awesome evoorhees,

I will have the total price for 1 day, 2 days, 1 week for you on Monday, when the company I am going to use wake up.

But the amount of pixels * the current amount is not far fetched.

Best idea ever!, you will even have my support on that one.

I can keep the pitch in safe on this address: 1MjyWLY1Rvx7rtqKwymA6Mo1gXF1UaFB8G   The address is hosted on WalletBit, so it's safe.

Until we decide for a go on the giant Bitcoin Ad.

Hi I added the backside of the bus, how about a big Bitcoin logo there? Wouldn't that be something.

The giant bitcoin looks great on the back.

4.8k BTC for the whole bus is a lot. Many we should only purchase pixels on the back.

What city is the pixle bus in? I really hope you guys pull this off. very cool idea btw.

idea: - reserve space on bus for qr codes and let local business link the qr codes to their business for free (provided they start accepting bitcoin)

I have a 32-foot motorhome that would be perfect for something like this that I thought would look good splashed in Bitcoin.  Problem is I never use the motorhome, nobody sees it much, and I will probably sell it.  Maybe I'll put it up for sale and ask for bitcoins.  Its exterior is smooth fiberglass and would accept vehicle wrap very well, plus it would still look decent after the wrap was taken off.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

You are totally right, it looks insanely great, I get the total amount to 4543 BTC, $23396, 141089 DKK  You can bet on the price to be at least 70000kr, but this just means we can have two bus driving around in difference places. Because whatever is left, I will use for another run.
