Funny Money & Bitcoins

Updated on July 27, 2014

Bitcoins

The latest round of American currency looks more like funny money than actual cash. When you first see some of these new strange pieces of paper money you might just scratch your head, and wonder if they are real United States currency or counterfeit money. Monopoly money even looks better than what you see coming out of your purse or wallet these days. Money is simply any object or record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a given society. American Indians of the Eastern Woodland tribes used wampum, which was composed simply of colorful white and purple beads made out of sea shells, in exchange for personal social transactions. Later on in history the trading of animal pelts became the desired system of trade. Actually that's where the term "Bucks" first originated from. They got that word and it derived from the fur off of a deer, which are otherwise known as bucks in this world. In modern times we use cash which refers to money in the physical form of currency, which can be banknotes or coins, however everyone needs to be on the lookout for Bitcoins which are the next big sensation on the Internet.

These new bank notes come with a new touch of color, and several other special features to help foil the increasing sophistication of counterfeiters. The new $100 dollar bill that is pictured above with it's featured hologram, and figures which appear to move is designed primarily to fight the copying of crooked counterfeiters. In reality this is really a good thing, because none of us want to get up to a store cash register after waiting in a long line only to be told that our money is fake and no good. So these new bills might look like funny money at first glance, but in reality they have a much more serious function.

So just for fun I decided to start designing some of my own colorful currency. Now of coarse none of these notes are legal tender for public or private debts, nor were they ever intended to be. This is simply for fun, and the bills are all returned to their original state after all of the photographing is completed. So far I've got a video game category with the world famous Angry Birds. There's a sporting category with hockey, football, basketball, and baseball all represented. There a beer bucks and candy cash category. Finally there's a holiday category that I started off by representing Halloween.

Please feel free to make any suggestions for your very own version of money, and I will try to create it and post it here for all on the Internet to see. Who knows maybe the powers to be in United States treasury or some other country might even read this hub someday, and decide to put one of the suggestions mentioned here on some form of future money. Just make your suggestion in the comment section below, and I will do the rest. Have a nice day!

A quick word about what Bitcoins are all about -

Bitcoins were first introduced back on January 3rd 2009 and this virtual currency is quickly growing in popularity. Bitcoins are nothing more than a form of virtual currency. Bitcoins are used for electronic purchases and transfers, and you don't physically purchase goods by handing Bitcoins to the sellers. You can use Bitcoins to pay both friends and merchants, and they fluctuate in value just like other currencies do in the world. Popularity is growing with millions of Bitcoin transactions occurring each and every day, and there are more than 1.5 billion dollars worth of Bitcoins out there in circulation around the world today. The NBA's Sacramento Kings recently became the very first major pro team in history to accept Bitcoins for Internet ticket and merchandise purchases. You also might want to keep your eyes open for Bitcoin friendly restaurants that are also beginning to pop up in areas all around the world.

      Can you whip me up a colorful batch of Lake Winnepesaukah money for my upcoming vacation. Thanks a million, and I know it'll look great and be fun to spend on our trip this weekend.

      How about printing me off a batch of Garanimals money for my latest YouTube video. I'd also like to invite everyone over to view all of my catcute77 YouTube videos. I promise you all won't be disappointed.

      As always it was my pleasure creating this new line of funny money, and your very welcome Bubblegum Jones. There's plenty of more funny money coming in the future, and I still hope that everyone keeps those money hungry ideas coming in to this hub!

      Thank you so much TheHoleStory for taking so much time, and making me some Easter Bunny money. They look great, and are so colorful that maybe the treasury department will take some of your suggestions for money to heart. I have one more request for some funny money for a special person in my life. Since we all just got finished celebrating St. Patrick's day could you whip up a prototype of St. Patty's day money for Mary Ann Flannigan.

      How about designing some Easter money for the upcoming holiday. I'm sure that children would love to see their beloved Easter bunny on a dollar bill.

      Very interesting a d informative hub. I had not heard of bit coins until reading this. I will be on the look out for these on the Internet. I wonder if these bit coins could become the currency of the future on a world- wide basis?

      A cashier gave me a 20 dollar bill in change a week ago and I asked her if she was joking. It was the new bill with colors and everything. However, I like your dollar bill ideas better!

      I agree with you. Definitely looks like funny money. I liked your m&m money. Cat money would be awesome. Would you do me some and post it? Zombie money would probably be neat, too.

      This is interesting to say the least.

      I'm wondering if families with children could create their own paper money to use within their own households. It may be a tool for teaching children. For example, someone is too busy to take out the garbage : They just pay another family member to take it out. It could work.
