Curious what this is made of ..Is it like a business card or plastic ? I collect stuff like this is why I ask.
Has anyone else given thought to the fact they had that card printed up? Hmm.
Kind of hard to believe this is the first time they have done that. Like investing the time and creating the card and the graphics if it was only a one time use
ITT: a whole bunch of dingbats worried about security on a ~$220 gift. Seriously folks, if your buttholes are this tight about security for a temporary storage of such a small amount then bitcoin is never gonna take off. It’s no different than giving someone a gift card. Sure someone could copy the info off a gift card and manually enter it into a POS terminal at the store it’s intended for. Sure someone could have physically compromised the gift card and used it before it was handed off to the recipient. Barclays isn’t putting OPs major payment on this thing and OPs not using it to store his life savings. Seems like some of you expect Barclays to buy a 3D printer to make this thing and smash it before having it connected to a network to prevent a compromise. Chill the eff out. It’s more of a gag gift than a Wallet.
Is that bone and cillian braille?
Wow that’s awesome, and the design of the card is beautiful!
The address on this card had never held bitcoin.
I thought Barclays name was Broccoli?
Hmmm…I should do speaking engagements. I’d get a few hundred of those.
That’s cool that they 3d printed it. At first I thought it was on cardstock.
Was there any sort of tamper-proof cover or enclosure around it? Would be a security risk if it needed to pass through multiple parties.
I don’t suppose your lecture covered: “How not to send Bitcoin: Physically delivering private keys”
The 3D printer/settings should be checked, I see a bit of under-extrusion there in the fill pattern.
I hope Barclay’s knows to hide these carefully, from any cameras, etc.
Also, I wonder what would happen if one of the pixels rubbed off or something.
This does not instill 100% confidence for me.
whatever you do, don’t transfer the fiat to a barclays account if you convert, because barclays closes those accounts.
You can probably sell that card and get even more BTC here: [https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=217.0](https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=217.0)
As a start, I’d give you $25 + shipping in BTC or ETH.
How does something like this work
Raw, unencrypted wallets like this seem very difficult to use in a practical manner.
A single glance or photo before its funded and swept can compromise it. Data leftover on any computer, printer, or other device can compromise it.
Also, not all wallets will find the deposited funds, so it can be tricky to use these right…. the main upside is that they are fun.
Why did they choose to pay you with bitcoin?!? To me this is very exciting that a big bank would actually pay you in BTC. Did you ask for this payment method?
What was the talk about ?
I’d probably cover up part of that QR code when posting pictures to the Internet.
That is pretty cool of them. I like it.

How much was it?
They gave you an etched piece of steel as payment? The banks must be fucked.
post the qr code
