Ever wake up one morning and say “today, I’m going to design my own banknote”? Of course, we all have. But earlier this week, I decided to act on that impulse. And just last night, I printed and laser cut my first batch of bytecoins at Metrix.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. What can I buy with a 5 bytecoins note? What security features does adafruit industries incorporate in its bytecoins notes?

  2. @david – please follow the link on the blog post we did not make these, thanks.

  3. As soon as I saw them, I thought “he must be Dutch” since they look so similar to the old (pre-Euro) Dutch Guilders. 🙂 Nice to see some familiar bank notes on the blog post. The Euro makes like a lot easier if you travel in Europe, but they definately aren’t terribly attractive. I kind of miss seeing “Le Petit Prince” on my 50 Franc notes:
