  •  Dude!! That gives me an idea: (5+ / 0-)

    So, as I understand it, Bitcoins work on the premise that to use them you have to expend some amount of computational resources, such that counterfeiting them is prohibitively expensive. IOW, they're kept secure by the power of computational intractability.

    So! What if rather than computer power, we had coins that ran on the power of prayer!? That's right, you just have to pray every time you want to use a Beckcoin, and the amount of prayer needed to forge the coin would be prohibitive, and anyway someone praying that much more than you probably deserves it more anyway!!
