Conservatism/neutrality is good when designing money as that invokes feelings of trust and stability.

Hence as latin is old, it should be the "Vires in Numeris".

"Load"/"spend" sounds like coupon words so don't use them.

Yellow bill by spy is not as good as the others he did, it looks jumbled + the folding/crease issue. Yellow color itself is good though.
Green and blue are likely the colors people associate with tranquility and reason the most though.

For disposable bills i think a low ink version of spys or an even a different simple version with same style is needed.


I also think it should be "Public key" instead of "address"... symmetry would require the first + it sounds more fancy.


All just my opinion of course, feel free to ignore it.

Vires in Numeris  I have also always liked...

This topic is blowing up today!

I know Mike is an early adopter but I am sure he is not a millionaire by any means.

Hey Mike. Is there a donation address that we can contribute to and watch the reward grow?

I think you guys are picturing the folding of the note the wrong way...

Must take some pictures to show you, I guess.

The green note is the one who has a problem when it's folded because you'll see the qr-code thru the back of the note. The orange one has no such problem.

Need to focus on the 3 way and the 2 way fold.

Hey bitpay. I liked where you where going with the Bonds! What happened?

I'm still working on it, although I believe that bearer bonds may be illegal, so I'm working on some better terminology and features that would be safer to use.  I'd like it to look like a real stock certificate, or something of value you can put in a safe, with the understanding that the document itself has no value, it is the information on it, which may be compromised.

Cool. Cause I am really looking forward to it! Do you need help with ideas?

The BTC logo looks re-rendered from scratch and is visibly different from the commonly seen one - consider snipping the original vector shapes from the PDF found here. https://bitcointalk.org/?topic=1756.0

The BTC logo has a slanted stroke on the lower left side of the B which is not present in the note.

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.

Yes, that is the font used on all the text of the note.

I am not referring to the font, I am referring to the outline of the following shape: -----> BTC

Yes, I understood. Was answering to unclemantis.
Your request to change the BTC with the regular one used on the logo will be dealt with tomorrow, along with a new version.

That request should be made to the Armory developer. I would love to print these notes with pub and priv keys coming from one of Armory's deterministic wallets, preferably offline Wink

I don't think so. Qr-codes are black pixels on a white background for a reason.
