Do you know how many Bitcoins it would take to fill a DVD by itself?

It might be interesting if you could store the blockchain and wallet.dat on a rewritable bluray disc instead of your hard drive. Then you could simply use bitcoin from any device that accepts bluray disks and bitcoin.

Exactly my thinking...

Hard Drives fail and burn out.. but if you keep a disc in a nice sleeve it will last forever.

That way it would also be alot easier to physically store your bitcoins.. rather than a decaying thumb drive; a stack of blurays!

Its my opinion that any online wallet or computer wallet is at a huge risk and you would only use those as a buffer between your bitcoin use and bitcoin storage

Hey pirate, stand back, that's a genious at work. He came up with the idea that the wallet and blockchain can be stored off-line on a bluray.  True genious. What will come next? Maybe he will come up with the idea of using USB Flash drives to store the wallet+blockchain! Inspired!

Idunno about Blu-ray discs specifically, but CDs are not long-term storage devices. After 5-15 years, there will start being significant issues due to degradation (even if you don't use them). You'd end up with corrupt, unusable data in not-so-long - likely without any warning if you don't regularly use the disc you're storing whatever on. Again, I don't know about Blu-Ray discs specifically, but it seems like a terrible idea to store your private keys on a disc (HDDs obviously included) without backups.

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

Blu-ray? DVD?
You could store all the bitcoins that will ever exist on a single CD.

For that matter, if you could find a drive for it, you could store all the bitcoins that will ever exist on a single 5.25 inch single sided 360 KB floppy disk.

If you have a pencil and a piece of paper, and you can manage to write 50 letters and numbers without making a mistake, you could store all the bitcoins that will ever exist with that tiny piece of paper.

Um no.  The OP idea was silly but that doesn't make your statements any less implausible.

There are currently 643,808 discrete non-zero addresses in the blockchain.  At a minimum you would need 157.18 MB of storage.
