Our son is 6 and he keeps asking for BTC. He asks for BTC because Dad loves BTC. In fact the only thing Dad loves besides him and mommy is BTC. People come to our house under the guise of “hanging out and enjoying each others company”, but then Dad corners them and urges them to buy and hold as much BTC as they can.
Anyway our son is at the age where he is losing teeth and gets visited by the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy usually leaves him garbage fiat which he stuffs into a wooden alligator where it will eventually reduce to .1% of its current value. He has a loose tooth right now and I am worried if he sees another dollar under his pillow he is going to start asking to keep the teeth instead, as they may be more valuable in the long run.
And so, thinking that this may be the perfect opportunity for our son to earn his first BTC, dad orange pilled the tooth fairy. Just like dad did to his Aunt Sarah, his swim instructor, the girl who cuts his hair, Kira and Michael’s parents and his speech pathologist. Turns out his 17 year old baby sitter is already laser eyed as fuck. Good for her.
The tooth fairy is on board, but only under two conditions:
Condition 1: The tooth fairy thinks it is important that leaving BTC is an opportunity to learn about it and secure it properly. After all, the BTC that gets left will be the only of that BTC ever created and if its gone, its gone forever. Just like his baby tooth that fell out.
Condition 2: It has to be fun to find BTC under your pillow in the morning when you’re 6 years old.
But how does a tooth fairy leave 30,000 sats under a pillow in a way that a 6 year old is going to be very excited about finding? My kid claims to love BTC but if he wakes up and sees a folded up 12 word seed phrase he is going to be pissed that the tooth fairy is making him practice reading first thing in the morning.
Does anyone have any ideas we can pass along to the tooth fairy to make this a lot of fun and educational?Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 at 22:47 #414042IndianaGeoff
Dude, give him a toy or some cash. He is a six year old.Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 at 22:47 #414043IsDinosaur
Buy bitcoin for your kid and keep that safe.
Give your kid cash, don’t take away a simple joy.
Maybe the tooth fairy can leave a note stating that the kid can trade it for Bitcoin if they leave it under the pillow the next night.Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 at 22:48 #414035Mr_P_Nissaurus
He uses his wallet to generate a receive address. He carefully writes down the address, then double-checks for accuracy. He leaves that under his pillow along with his tooth. I hope you can figure out the rest.Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 at 23:41 #414038clue5tick
The kid’s gonna be alright!

Leave fiat but match with BTC in time locked walletWednesday, November 30th, 2022 at 01:26 #414041HesitantInvestor0
I’d give him cash with a note saying: “Cash is trash. Exchange for Bitcoin.”
And then I’d open up a wallet under his name and show him how to transfer. Keep it in your custody. Give him an IOU to hold instead.
You can make this fun without making it complicated.Wednesday, November 30th, 2022 at 01:49 #414044HighlightTiny9896

Make xpub for the wallet. Put full amount for all 20 lost baby teeth in. Give one of 24 seed words per tooth. Last tooth gets five word so they don’t brute force the tooth fairy.
