Title: [ANN] DOGEbar - 4 year anniversary - limited run - WOW!
Post by: bigtimespaghetti on February 03, 2018, 06:27:44 PM
Introducing the 4 year anniversary Doge bar!

http://bigtimespaghetti.com/4yoDOGE.html (http://bigtimespaghetti.com/4yoDOGE.html)

wow!

A few days ago I finally got the shipment of the doge anniversary bars that I planned in early December and I have to say- it's some of my best work, but judge for yourself. I'm very excited to share this with you my wonderful shibes. It's been a long time since I've done a project for the fun of it, but I think you'll agree it is a striking design.

Doge has been kind to me over the years, I've come a long way since mining doge in my basement and now it's time to pay back a little of this kindness to dogecoin and the community that makes it possible.

Only 100 102 of these beautifully rendered plated bars have been minted (wow!) making it a truly limited edition. In addition to owning your lovely dogecoins, you too can own a little part of serious shibe history- such desirability.

50 pure silver bars have been added with variation on the design for a hallmark to indicate purity and weight.

50 matte bars will be available in March.

prices are as follows:

pure silver $200

All bars come in capsules. All prices include shipping.


If you are interested please DM me. Or check out http://bigtimespaghetti.com/4yoDOGE.html (http://bigtimespaghetti.com/4yoDOGE.html)

In the spirit of doge 20% of all profits will be put aside to be donated to a charity which does important work helping defectors and refugees from North Korea (Liberty in North Korea).

Obviously doge is accepted, but if you want to use a different payment method I'm pretty flexible.

In addition to the bar I decided to take part of the artwork and turn it into stickers/apparel here:

Wow so much interest! I checked shipping as soon as I set the post and underestimated. Those first 3 PMs I got will pay the original lower price just to clarify.

If I'm slow to get back- my apologies it's late (for me) at the moment and I honestly didn't expect to get this much interest!

And thanks for the kind words, I've been very busy and have had very little time to come on BTT.

These DOGEBars look fantastic. With only a limited supply of 100 bars in existence, this could become a very valuable treasure in the long term. As a suggestion, future bars could also serve as cold storage by allowing the user to load funds on them. But despite that, these bars are outstanding and would make a great addition to my arsenal. 8)

Sent you a DM to buy 2 silver bars from you. Looking forward to owning them soon. :)

thanks for the compliments and feedback Abiky! This project was really a creative one (perhaps a little selfish as I just wanted to have a little fun) and to give back to one of the most long standing communities in crypto. This is why I didn't include cold storage as part of the design, cold storage wallets are a far more serious endeavour. These, I hope will be primarily attractive for collectors :)

You're welcome. I'm always a big fan of physical cryptocurrency coins, even if they were a non-loadable collector's item. And yes, cold storage are more serious and require a little more work.  ;)

Anyways, these bars are just fine to me and I'm sure that many crypto enthusiasts will love them as well. They commemorate Dogecoin's 4th anniversary which makes them a truly collector's item. Nonetheless, I've sent you a PM to make the purchase for the 2 silver bars. I'm just waiting for your response so that you could give me the total cost and BTC address to send the coins to. Can't wait to get my hands on these soon!   :)

Heading to bed now. I'll pick up on confirming payments and replying to new order requests tomorrow afternoon.

holy moly, these sold so fast. In the interest of getting these bars out to more people and increasing the charity contribution I'm cutting the buy 2 get 1 free short. There are currently only:

3 silver bars left

10 coppers

I'm stopping new orders until the reserved orders have completed payment. If bars have not been paid for by Monday morning your order will be cancelled.


please see update in OP too. DM to be added to the order queue.

Nice to see that these were well received by the community!

Not sure if I missed it but would you mind disclosing the mintage? Was it 100 of each finish?

Sorry if I wasn't clear in the OP. The mintage was limited to 100 bars total. I will confirm the numbers later on in the OP- I think the orignal amount I put on was off (typo). I'm out right now but will update soon.

update: OP updated with mintage numbers.

Made another update, I've put two more into the market due to a screwup at my end. So it brings the total up to a wopping 102 in circulation :)

EDIT:
Well I spoke too soon, I had an order cancellation freeing up 3 silvers. Unless anyone has a problem with this I'm going to leave the test strikes in circulation- they were as good as my full run so there is nothing special about them.


Title: Re: [ANN] DOGEbar - 4 year anniversary - limited run - WOW!
Post by: bigtimespaghetti on February 04, 2018, 07:02:58 PM
all silvers are reserved, unless I get an order cancellation (I still have 3 order payments outstanding so it is possible) please assume that all that is left is copper.

hi man please DM to be added to the order queue.

###

Signing off for the night and wrapping up current orders. Any order unresolved will not be posted tomorrow, they will be posted after payment later in the week. It's looking more like a Monday night/Tuesday morning shipment for all orders paid already. I have a lot of packing to do. Much more than I original planned for!

All orders should assume silvers are sold out unless you have already asked/been replied to before this post, I will inform those in the queue as and when they become available and as and when I am available to process your order.

All DMs from this point will be added to the order queue. I will deal on a first come first serve basis, please don't spam me with messages- if I haven't replied it's because I'm waiting to clear the order log before addressing you.

And one more thing- now I've seen the level of demand there is for quality bars such as this one on my next run (I have something pretty fun forming in my mind) I will be setting up a payment portal in advance so I won't be taking orders by hand! I'm sure many of you will be relieved to know this ;)

Thanks guys!

I have a backlog right now, all paid orders will be shipped by Wednesday now. I'm currently waiting on more packaging material to arrive from the increased demand! Thanks for your patience.

If you have messaged about current orders I'll get back to you before the end of the day- remember I'm in Europe though so timezones will vary ;)

Cheers!

Post by: bigtimespaghetti on February 05, 2018, 02:19:58 PM
If you haven't paid already, you will need to get another order to match the current exchange rate. This is relevant to orders that by this morning had not paid. I'm not processing new orders yet so don't panic. Just a headsup.

If you left it to the last minute to send payment after the price drop you will be refunded.

update PM: most orders were fine, a few had to be cancelled, I'm reserving them until I hear back over the next 24 hours.

There are only 2 orders outstanding which I expect to be resolved pretty quickly, then I'll move onto the orders with changes (you know who you are!) ;)

I'll be taking new orders probably from Thursday at some point. Wednesday will be packing and posting.

cheers

hi All, still have a long backlog of messages. Which I'm following up as best I can with my limited time.

packaging has been mostly completed. due to personal circumstance the sending may take until the weekend- remember I'm just one dude doing this ;)

When you're package is shipped I'll send you a DM.

Since there has been such a high demand and popularlity -clearly a lot of people will be missing out, I'm considering a small pure silver run and small a matte base metal run. A lot of you have been asking about a pure silver version of this bar.

But please don't message me about the new runs, I'll update the OP and post here (so just turn on notifications in a couple of weeks for this thread). They will be extremely limited as well. I don't expect to strike more than 50 pure silvers at a guess.

Very nice news so soon and thanks for the thorough update. 

I was one of the people requesting the silver strike if it was possible and to give everyone a fair chance I'd recommend limiting the qty to 1 per person when they get launched.   ;)

Thanks for the update. Take your time. I know that it is hard to prepare all of those shipments, especially when only a single person is doing all of the job. These Dogebars are one of a kind, and will make a great addition to any cryptocurrency enthusiast. Now that you've mentioned pure silver bars, I've become interested into buying one as well. Hopefully, these new bars would become extremely valuable due to their limited supply. I have the feeling that they may go up fast, so I'll try to do my best and check your latest posts for updates. :)

Nevertheless, keep up the good work! ;)

80% of the packaging is complete. There's something pretty satisfying about stacking heavy little cardboard boxes.

Just the smaller orders need to be protectively packed now.

It's hard to judge since I'm still in message/order backlog, but I think all of the bars are now sold as of a day or so ago.

Not to worry for those still interested in a bar- while this series will not be re-run in it's current form (no more plating). I'll be making a pure silver run as mentioned above, with a limit to 1 per customer with a mintage of 50 pure silver bars.

For those that may want a cheaper option than pure silver I'll be doing a small matte metal run too in an effort to spread ownership a little more but without diminishing the rarity of the plated bars. Again with a limited 50 strike mintage.

Bringing the total of dogebars in circulation too 202.

That will be all the bars I'm striking for this design, this was always intended to be a limited run and once I've inspected the next shipment of pure silver and matte bars, the dies for this bar will be destroyed.

After those bars you guys will have to wait December for another limited edition doge anniversary bar :)

Very nice news so soon and thanks for the thorough update. 

I was one of the people requesting the silver strike if it was possible and to give everyone a fair chance I'd recommend limiting the qty to 1 per person when they get launched.   ;)

This is a great idea, thanks for the input

You're welcome and thanks for the follow up announcement.  Looking forward to the bars and will keep an eye peeled for the silver mintage.  :)

pretty sure my message backlog is clear now. last few bars are reserved pending payment.

if you didn't DM me I'm sorry you'll have to wait for the silver and matte metal strikes of these.

I noted a few people posting in this thread and not DMing me, I didn't have time to get back to you due to answering all the messages. I'll try to get back to you guys when I have new bars available so you don't miss out.

that is indeed the plan. will take a little longer because the design needs to be altered slightly for the silver bar.

tracking was sent out on Wednesday- if you didn't receive it, there was either a problem with the tracking (which I will follow up this weekend) or your package was small enough to be sent as a 'letter' and did not need tracking. Don't worry though everything is packed extremely well and I've never lost an order through postNL.

Congrats, the bars look awesome, DOGE is very well supported by the community so it deserves the commemoration!
thanks :)

1 copper - please PM with payment details
Hi BandanaPanda, no more bars left, but I will add you to the message list for the matte and pure silver versions.

1 silver, please PM with payment detail.
Hi Finite, I'll add you to the list so you don't miss out on the next run.

Just a quick update. Pure silver bars are ready. For the first week I will only be accepting single bar orders, this is due to how popular the previous batch of bars were. I'm trying to spread out ownership to as many people as possible and give them a chance. After this initial window I will be accepting orders for more than one pure silver bar.

I will announce the status of the final plated batch very soon. I'm currently having to decide between selling another shiny plated batch or a matte batch that are not really entirely up to my standards- they look great, but some of the plating isn't perfect. If you're interested in seeing a preview of what a matte batch could look like I have donated 2 test bars to ChiBitCTy's charity auction here:

Or if it is Carlos Matos buying it from me himself haha.

haha you caught it! I updated that because I have a batch of plated that were originally meant to me matte, originally I was going to go ahead with just another regular plated batch, but I'm not quite comfortable with that as I wanted the final batch to be different. These additional bars have not gone on sale yet as I haven't decided to conclude this design run with the shiny plated or a fresh run of matte. I'm tempted to leave it up to the community. Perhaps I'll make a poll.

The reason the matte haven't been announced yet is that I'm not entirely happy with the final product. Thus I ordered the additional batch of 'original'.

To clarify, these bars will be destroyed if I go ahead with a matte batch and will not make it into circulation. Then the molds will be destroyed also.

If I go ahead with these instead of a matte batch, they will be the last bars to be sold in this design and molds will be destroyed.

EDIT: I should probably fix the numbers until the final decision has been made.

Thanks Chi!

Just a quick couple of announcements related to this bar: the plated batch I have on hand currently will be destroyed.

Within 8 days I will have the matte batch available for sale! I was worried about the quality, but I like the fact that each bar has unique polish/plating patterns and the matte effect looks awesome.

And finally... after putting it off for years I've launched http://bigtimespaghetti.com/ (http://bigtimespaghetti.com/) where I will have information on all my collectables, complete mintage information on previous projects will follow soon. The only mintage information currently is related to this bar.

You can also purchase through the website. Currently only the pure silver bars are available. The matte will follow soon.

I will be still taking orders through the forum, but the payment portal on my site is available for swifter transactions.

cheers!

Hey man, glad the bar made it.

The pure silver strikes are limited to 50. The plated and matte bars make up the bulk of the run. The matte haven't been officially released yet but they have been struck and will be available by next weekend.

An update on the matte bars:

Due to quality control issues this batch is delayed, possibly up to another two weeks. I'm following this up with my manufacturer. Essentially this whole batch was a write-off surprisingly it actually had nothing to do with the matte-plating, there were a number of critical problems with the strikes themselves which were unacceptable. The problems seemed to have arisen with gross carelessness during the striking and polishing processes. I'll keep you informed.
