    I miss the old days when creative shit like this would pop up from time to time. From the physical bitcoins with a tamper proof QR code to the interesting design of some paper wallet prints – it was truly a time of wonder and hope.

    We’ve come a long way and things are better now than they ever were, but I can’t help but feel over the years something was lost in this community that can never be regained.

    Perhaps I’m just getting old.

    So how does it work? Is there a seed phrase sealed in the bar?
