But if the private key is delivered to you, then the deliverer also has the private key. And then, you don't really own the address. For this reason, getting the major pools to pay it out to 1st25... directly would be better.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

If you really had some money I would take a gamble and aproach the top 3 pools.  Offer to prepay them a premium directly if they use a vanity address (1st25BTC....) you generated as the coinbase for that block. 

Then it will be 0 hops.  Of course even w/ top 3 pools you only have a ~50% chance of getting that particular block.

Nice idea. Let me think about it for a few months.

Yes, great idea. Wish I had thought of it...

I bid 60BTC on the 25BTC on the awarded Private Key only if it was solo mined, no pool.

+1, great way to do it. That way, you can have no trust necessary in regards to passing private keys, since the pool only needs the address to mine to. And, multiple pools can all work on the same address.

I think they should be auctioned off!  Think about what the genesis block is worth right now?

Do it! You will only gain the profit the auction brings.

I think an auction would be a great idea for these 'collectors items'. The proceeds of which could be split between the finding pool and a good Bitcoin cause.

I would definitely be in the hunt for the last 50BTC block.  Can someone organize this with the pools?  I know its not a guarantee but it still would be worth trying.

hmm, so to raise interest and not have the "special coins" destroyed an hour after creation, you should auction it before you have it. Wonder which auction platform allows auctioning items with an unknown seller Smiley
