Bitcoin Specie Coin: A Unique Bitcoin That Is Not A Bitcoin

In my search for physical Bitcoins, I ran across the Bitcoin Specie coin. It is a 1oz .999 silver coin that does not have any Bitcoin value. It has a QR code that takes you to a webpage to give you the current value in several different currencies starting with Bitcoin. This whole concept is to promote Bitcoin and get coins in peoples's hands they will use and carry around with them. I brought mine to the Inside Bitcoins Conference in NYC on April 7-8.

Cloakcoin - The Coin with the Built in Exchange

I chose Cloakcoin as the Random Coin of the Day today for it's unique exchange integration with its wallet. With centralized places like eBay, sellers often get the raw end of the stick and are unable to handle their own business' transactions. Will Cloakcoin take over what eBay has failed to do and create a fair environment for trading with their new OneMarket trading platform as well? Although the Windows wallet on their website is missing OpenSSL DLL dependencies and doesn't have any instructions on where to find these files, the aspect of having a built in exchange is something a lot....
