ok then. maybe I am not looking for a Bearer Bond. More like a SECURE bond?

That is the great thing about these... we are not locked into any one persons interpretation of what they should be.

Maybe you want an letter sized bond to frame or show off or whatever that has the public key, but a credit-card sized serial-numbered matched private key store.... all do-able!

Would be awesome! Maybe something to give a new born and then allow them to watch the amount of BTC and the value of the BTC grow in value over time. And then on their 18th birthday they are presented with either the private key or the pass phrase to unlock the encrypted private key that is on the same certificate. Hell if they can crack it and withdraw early I think they are entitled to early withdraw Smiley

The pass phrase could be as simple as a poem that you mention at his graduation dinner party Tongue

That bearer bond looks awesome.

I've been wanting a nice looking way of saving offline funds to paper.  Armory is pretty cool, but something easily printed would be really nice, too.

We should come up with a good list of people/things for the portraits and the quotes.  I know there have been a few posts before filled with ideas.

Maybe we can pool together to get some CERTIFICATES printed out by a CERTIFICATE company. you know the same ones that do stocks and bonds and vital records and stuff? Sure we can print the details at home but this would be really sweet!

Don't you really want to print it yourself since it has the private key right there? One rouge employee with a camera could do a lot of damage.

The public and private key would be printed at home. The certificate would just have the security marks on it and look official.

It's a thought. I figure if we are going to make a Bonds version instead of a disposable version we might as well go all out.

I would. Smiley

Again. We are talking about just the paper and general design. The details and contents are printed at home.

Perhaps we should start a new topic about bonds? I believe that we have taken this outside of the initial scope of Mike's vision. Which I believe is a good thing!

Those are smaller bitcoin units http://www.rugatu.com/questions/1467/what-are-the-bitcoin-units

500mBTC would be BTC0.50. Hope it helps

If people print these at home, they can use some more ruggedized paper.

Normal paper is made from wood pulp and disintegrates when it gets wet.

The dollar bills we carry around are made from cotton and linen, not from wood pulp.

Here are some cotton & linen papers you can buy to print your own bitcoin notes, so they will better withstand folding, getting wet, etc.

Timbo I like this, but from a usability standpoint, the 2 QR codes are too close together.  You should be able to fold the note in half to hide one of the codes.
