Yeah, your right. Maybe the coins would "rot away" if they are not circulated or something?

It was an interesting idea.

I think this is combined hype, and slight bubble. I see it settling around 4-5 USD a coin in a few months, but then again who knows!

Security and technical support / Bitcoins VS. PGP
« on: January 06, 2012, 09:58:17 PM »
Hey guys, a friend of mine has been experimenting with his new website,, where you use bitcoin private keys to sign and post messages. Now I was wondering, how safe are bitcoin addresses compared to other security measures like PGP keys? I know in terms of brute cracking a bitcoin or PGP key, although a PGP key would take longer, both would take so long it's not even worth trying for to crack either one. But what about signing messages, obviously this is what PGP was designed for, but bitcoin seems to be working pretty well on our site. What do you guys think about this?

Because after a year one year old daycoin would be worth 365 daycoins

I don't know why I though of this idea, but I think its pretty cool

It already died :(

Altcoin discussion / Strange coin idea, Daycoins?

I like thinking of ideas for silly alternative cryptocurrencies, but recently this idea I had seems to sound somewhat more interesting than the rest. The idea itself is pretty simple actually, each coin produced would be "dated" and grow in value over time, to a degree. The genesis block would contain the oldest coins in the chain, and be used comparatively to other coins. For example, say the chain has existed for one week. The gen-coins would be eight days old, while coins mined today would be one day old (for the sake of the math). So, if I had 8 coins mined today, it would be only worth one genesis coin. Using the client you could break your coins up into different types, and use it sort of like breaking change. I'm not sure if this would be useful, but I thought I would share some of my crazy ideas with you guys.
