    I’m sure there’s some sort of fattening/inflation joke to be made, but I can’t figure it out.

    • edgore says:

      I think the joke is something like “‘Limited Edition” will prevent one kind of inflation, but I think ‘Bacon’ cancels that out with another”
      I’m still workshopping it.

    This currency is doomed from the start. Assuming one already has bacon, why would they possibly want to exchange it for anything other than more bacon?

    • Boundegar says:

      I dunno about that, it’s been trading on the Chicago Board of Trade for over 50 years, disguised as “pork belly futures.”

      • Brainspore says:

        But I already knew that the future of pork involves my belly.

        Clarence Beaks would like a word.

        Sadly, pork belly futures stopped trading in Chicago almost two years ago.  The story of pork bellies – how they grew into a huge commodity market, and why they declined – is really quite fascinating, and I encourage everyone to read (or listen to) the linked story.

          At least Terry Pratchett’s Pork Futures Warehouse exists, well, at least as much as it ever has.  The theory is that if you can buy and sell future pork, surely you’ll need somewhere to store it until the pork exists as present pork. The Warehouse stores the future ghosts of sides of pork, waiting patiently to become future bacon.  Time travel and bacon – two great tastes that go together as well as fish fingers and custard.

      All this currency is going to do is encourage more pork-barrel spending.

    • Nash Rambler says:

      No no, the Baconcoin merely represents pork goods or baconfat rendered, in larder denominations.

    John Scalzi needs one of these shirts.  Because, well, bacon.

    How long before BaconBitCoin?

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Bacon. Soooo funny. Bacon! Even the word is funny. What a pity you have to shoot an intelligent creature through the head with an electric bolt and then dismember it in order to enjoy it.

    I think I know somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who has one.

    Baconcoin… really? 

    Surely Bacoin.

  8. Nash Rambler says:

    Sadly, this currency would probably be more stable than most.  Plus just think of the bill designs!
