Whilst thinking about the Bit-Groat, I came up with something less stupid.

1 bit-goat gets you a goat. 2 bit-goats, male and female is a better investment progeny-wise.

None of this blocky-chainy nonsense, and unlike bit-coins, you can eat them.

       I think we should all revert to a straight barter system. The Inland Revenue might be less avid in pursuing people if they were likely to be sent 23.8 wicker baskets or 7.2 cows in payment.

       How do you pay in 0.2 of a cow ? Banks really don't like dealing in fiddling small change ....

       I think they'd adapt.   

       I'd like to see a big box store where people come in the door with livestock and leave with refrigerators and bigscreen TV's.   

       Also, getting calls from a collection agency, demanding the chicken you owe them, would be less of a nuisance.   

       Re: idea, remote livestock ownership is a thing - how does this differ ?

       Shopkeeper: "Have you got anything smaller?"   

       Customer: "How about this cat?"

       So, a currency that you could deploy in Goat Simulator?

       Just last week I visited a friend who used to have a goat, and we fondly discussed our memories of it. It used to eat their laundry. Just so you know the drawbacks.

       // It used to eat their laundry. //   

       Was it supposed to eat the laundry ?   

       Presumably the goat wasn't called "Hotpoint" or "Whirlpool" ?   

       Using domestic and domesticated animals has been used as a currency or measure of wealth by many of your planet's cultures for millennia - tribes like the Masai judge status by cattle ownership, and some Arabian groups use camels (the horrible, disgusting, foul-smelling, bad-tempered ugly nuisance, not the brand of cigarette).   

       In wales, sheep use the welsh as currency.
