Self motivation not enough? Maybe bockchain can help

I can’t get my self to do all the things I want to do.

I want to do this every single day:

  • 100 push ups
  • cold shower 
  • no coffee
  • eat 4 different colored fruits or vegetables
  • drink fish oil
  • meditate 
  • run 

We all know that this would be good things to do, but somehow they feel like some sort of self punishment. 

So what if someone can hold you accountable for this. What if that person is your future self. Some people go to the gym just because the feel bad about wasting the membership. 

Enter the Bitcoin Challange

Stake Bitcoin and make a challenge for myself (or others) to do a certain task ( 100 push ups a day, read 10 pages of a book a day/ etc , phone a friend a day etc)

The app is basically a simple bitcoin wallet that checks for a swipe each day. ( trust based system ) when you finish the challenge the app lets you transfer the bitcoin back out of the wallet.

If you miss more days then the max set amount the founds will be send to the bitcoin genesis wallet or burned .

Here is the lockup and unlock process:

 

I made a pole on bitcointalk.org asking if peopele whould use it, 100% of the peopel would not trust it 🙂

No - 0 (0%)
Yes - 0 (0%)
I don’t trust it  1 (100%)
It’s stupid - 0 (0%)
 
Total Voters: 1

So how to get people to trust it enough, bare in mind that we don’t want people to stake there life earnings on a challenge.

Today there are peaty safe ways of generating a “Brain Wallet” now you can have your challenge text be the brain wallet seed and then salt it with your e-mail and a random 100 char word.

Once you generated this address ( completely on the client side you can even disconnect the internet connection) you can transfer the funds that would motivate you enough. The random word is send to a centralized server the server returns your random 100 word when you complete the challenge. Server cannot access you funds because it dose not have the seed words you used.

More to come….
