Deeds and Titles are typically government issued.  For lack of a better word, we can call it a "Bitcoin Account".  I've added some different graphics for the elliptic curve crypto and a better background.

Also, since when you import the private key you basically transfer all of the bitcoins in the account, I changed it from "SPEND" to "SPEND ALL".

I agree about Account. An account can have one or more key pairs. A wallet can have one or more Accounts.

What about paper stock certificates representing glbse shares ?
I don't think GLBSE shares have Bitcoin addresses. Nefario would have to issue those. He would have to decide how much value would be transferable to a paper certificate and how much should remain digital.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

And here's a variation with a prominent mathematician:




here's another option with a Fibonacci seashell background.  Mike am I getting closer?




Cool designs! I realize these are early mock-ups, but I feel that using the portraits of people like Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein is a bit pretentious.

It feels like one is trying to leach their status and wide recognition, since their work is wholly unrelated to Bitcoin and cryptography.

Instead, I would like to nominate Claude Shannon, alternatively Alan Turing for the portrait. Shannon and Turing were preeminent cryptographers, founders of the field of computer science, and widely recognized in name if not in portrait. As a third alternative, Charles Babbage has a copyright free portrait with the right dead president feel. He would not look too out of place on a 'bank note'.

In my opinion gsan's first fractal design looks the best, while bit-pay has the better layout.

Is it "SPEND ALL" or "REDEEM" (I could import without spending for a time) ?

Technically when you import you are kinda spending them. I think.

Thoughts?

So I tried to combine some of the feedback. The size is based on an euro bill this time. There is a lot of going on in this one. Something on the foreground might be a great idea but wanted to share this already.
On the left you got the load/verify qr code and the background is marked with the text: BITCOINCASHBITCOINACH...
Middle is all watermarked with lines and with the BTCitcoin cash 'logo'.
The amount portion is also marked with the BITCOINCASH and lines.
Right side has the other QR code and got some binary code combined with the BTCitcoin cash.
Can easily change the colors of the bill so made some variations.







If you got a idea to add something or delete. Plz share Smiley

Pretty.

We still need to work on the defining labels though Sad

Thaks,

Not to much work to change it. But have the feeling the defining labels will take a wile to figure out :p

I understand the reason for the curve... however I think it distracts from the bill and makes it look un-tidy.

At a glance it looked like someone scribbled pen on it.

I'm probably going to regret this, but what do you call a unit of 420 Satoshis?

Potoshi.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.
