1  Bitcoin / Project Development / The Fate of Satoshi, a Bitcoin graphic adventure [BUY thread] [CrowdF + Equity] on: January 28, 2014, 07:02:15 PM
This is the BUY thread for:

The Fate of Satoshi, a Bitcoin graphic adventure [CrowdF + Equity]

Please take a minute and carefully read that whole thread first !

(and mods, please tell me if I need to move this somewhere else)


5. The CrowdFunding + Equity Share model, Payments and Escrow

Update 14/02/06: Prices updated.
Update 14/02/07: Prices updated.
Update 14/02/10: Prices updated.
Update 14/02/13: Prices updated.

We want to fund the game production by selling pre-orders and a total of 49% stake in it.

All of the game’s sales income (excluding the Equity sale itself) will be split among us (51%) and the Equity holders (49% total, 0.1% per share, 490 shares), in the form of monthly BTC dividends to the address used for payment. From release and till the end of times.

BUT we can only go ahead with the project if we get at least 20% of the Equity “funded” or sold (which amounts to 10.000 USD or 12 BTC at current rate). This is the bare minimum that would enable us to cover the costs to do this professionally and in a sensible timeframe.

For this reason, we have requested the help of gweedo (BitcoinTalk Hero Member) to do all transactions through a trusted and well respected escrow, granting us the possibility of doing a full refund if our target is not met.

The payment addresses will be held and posted by gweedo below (I’ll copy them on this opening  post), and they will only be released to us IF and when we reach the goal of 20% stake sold. If we don’t manage to do that in a maximum of 45 days, all funds will be returned.

That said, we want to make this happen and keep it as simple (and profitable) as possible for everyone involved so there will be just two tiers:

(I’ll keep the BTC prices updated twice a day according to market fluctuations, please always check this or the BUY thread for the latest price before you proceed)

+ Tier I: Full game pre-order + early access copies (no equity!)
Price: 10 USD worth of BTC: 0.0164 BTC at current rate

Send BTC to
and post in the Buy thread:

+ Tier II: Equity shares + Full game pre-order + early access copies
490 shares total, worth 0.1% of the game each.
You can get as many shares as you want.
1 game copy per original shareholder (not share!)
Price per share: 50 USD worth of BTC: 0.0818 BTC at current rate

Send BTC to
(to buy X number of shares, send the total amount (X * 0.0818) in a single transaction !)
and post in the Buy thread:

+ Donators: If you feel you appreciate the idea but won’t be playing and wanna just help out:

Send BTC to:

IMPORTANT: Make sure you send the BTC from an address you fully control (ie you own the private key) and in a single payment ! We will be doing all accounting, tracking and confirmation through the addresses and BTC itself: we’ll be requiring a signed message when the time comes to deliver the game and all dividends for Equity holders will be payed out to the address you used to pay. It is absolutely vital that the address you used can receive BTC back and that you control the private key.


gweedo, our escrow agent for the whole operation, will post his details below and use this thread as confirmation for all transactions !

The Fate of Satoshi, a Bitcoin graphic adventure [CrowdF + Equity]

The Plot

Somewhere in a not so distant future, Bitcoin has become one of the world currencies, leading  the way for a new world economy. But not everything that glitters is gold: new continental government-corporations have arisen as a way to face the changing times. They’ve seeked more and more to regain the control and power lost through the separation of state and money.

Now things are stirring again and strange rumours are starting to be heard…

In the midst of it all stands Magnus, who has been studying Satoshi and Bitcoin history for 15 years. An ominous call will set off a chain of events that will catapult him through an adventure featuring corporate-governments, secret agents, the resistance, evil bankers, eccentric early adopters and above all, Bitcoin.


The Proposal

1. Objectives as a Bitcoin Project

+ To become the first game fully funded and centered around Bitcoin, and in a minor way, a success case for Bitcoin crowdfunding.
+ Educate on the history and use of Bitcoin (featuring internal wallets, transactions and use cases as part of the game’s puzzles and plot).
+ Educate on the perils lying ahead, and the possible costs of losing freedom and decentralization.
+ Obviously, to spread the word.

2. Game objectives

+ The game is a point and click graphic adventure; a throwback for all of us older gamers, but with a new modern & minimalistic high quality graphic style.
+ Agile storyline (as much as a graphic adventure can be, meaning we don’t want it to be a “think six hours about what you should do next” thing).
+ A comedic approach with serious undertones.

Winter is coming.

Hello people,

I'm in need of an old timer, highly verified and proven escrow agent for a an upcoming project ASAP.

Please PM me or post here so we can have a chat and I can show you what it would entail.

(John K, if you see this please send me a PM. I've msged you but you're probably busy or swarmed with stuff)

Thanks !
6  Economy / Speculation / The Thin Red Line on: January 09, 2014, 05:53:39 AM
It seems as though our growth was planned way back in time.

I give you the most important line in Bitcoin history.

Everyone who sold above it is a winner. Watch out for this one in the future. Clearly big whales have been watching it (and it's parallels).

Someone has been steering these channels since way back.

(this was inspired by ronfkinswanson's version over at TV; it is now a Schiff Pitchfork and it's placed on the first 2011 bubble instead).

Do you guys know if I can get Crypsty historical prices somehow?
8  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / This is circulating among net-sec specialists... on: December 10, 2013, 08:36:10 AM
In case anyone's interested. I haven't found a mention of it in the forum.
9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / What safeguards can I use when attempting 0 confirmation transactions? on: December 06, 2013, 12:57:07 AM
I'm needing to integrate BTC payments into a working system where speed is essential, and 0 confirmations seems to be the only way to achieve needed speed.

Are there any best practices for doing this?

Can I somehow analyze a TX and do my (internal) manual confirmation?

I know I should start by checking if a correct fee was paid. Will that suffice? What else is there?

Thanks !
10  Economy / Goods / Bitcoin Badges - (BTC Braided Patches ) on: November 19, 2013, 08:09:19 AM
Hey guys,

I just received these BTC braided patches I had made for myself and couple friends. I had to order in quantity so I got about 40 to spare right away, and more coming next week.

I'm sending them anywhere in the world through regular mail for 15 USD worth of BTC each.

PM me !

PS: Sorry for the shitty image quality, I'll take new pics with sunlight tomorrow.

EDIT: That cutting mat is in Centimeters BTW.
