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.

  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:
