10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Making a BTC pitch to a billionaire on: May 24, 2020, 10:38:39 PM


Just in the interests of historical completeness, I'm necro-ing this thread, I never did make this pitch in the end, over eight years ago, and sometimes I wonder what may have happened had I had done so and if she would have been receptive to it.

I think that the main reason that I didn't follow through with a pitch was that I thought it would work best as a fundraising appeal to her charity for some worthwhile bitcoin-related project which would need to be made via an NPO and there wasn't the enthusiasm or momentum for setting one up unless I was to do it all by myself.

Most likely one to do with remittances via BTC could have been well received and possible to appeal to her interests, or I could have just pitched bitcoin as the superior alternative to fiat & gold and see if she caught my enthusiasm for it, but inertia won the day.

I was amused that it was assumed a billionaire philanthropist must be a male, it was, in fact, my erstwhile sometimes neighbour at that time Elsa Peretti.

Thanks for your response Bobby, it's 2 AM now for me so I'll let others comment or not on your offering regarding the now disclosed DIY part of it Etc, still wishing the best for all your efforts in the crypto space of course...

The product picture you posted doesn't show a DIY stick on block number/reward strip (or at least nothing like I'd expect to be able to achieve on a first attempt), so it's misleading & for a > $82k product this really doesn't look too promising to me at all  Cry

"The raised lettering showing the block height and block reward BTC amount is a display nicety, as in the end, it's all about what the balance shows for that address on the actual blockchain."

But short of pealing them how does anyone know that particular physical 'block' is what it purports to be in the easily spoofed (I assume) DIY stick on block number and rewards ID part of the physical block?

Um, more like early access to the lack of the most critical information here if you ask me Sad

So these are not designed to be bearer instruments like BTCC or Casascius coins/blocks, just some stick on raised letter strips to show what's meant to be their actual block mined and rewards value, which don't sound at all tamper proof to me  Undecided

Should of course have been mentioned from the start, certainly doesn't appeal to me, but keeping an open mind for now.
17  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Bobby Lee is back, with Ballet (and new products!) on: April 01, 2020, 06:19:17 AM
I guess that the blocks have been already mined, they are then sent to the addie on the physical block after it has been delivered, rather than being mined directly to the addie on the physical block, I'm not very up on the mining side of things TBH

The coins will be mined directly to the address on the physical block.

This is what I can't get my head around, you are sending out empty (non-funded) physical blocks but they have the actual block number mined with rewards printed or engraved on them, how can this be if these are then mined directly to the physical blocks later, i don't get it?

Very nice, congratulations bobby & team!


"Yes, these Blocks will contain virgin BTC straight from the coinbase reward (zero hops), and includes all transaction fees in the block. This means that besides this being a truly limited series, each and every block will be unique, and have it's own block height, and unique block reward BTC amount. The blocks will be funded directly by our mining pool partner, to be announced later. (If there are additional mining pools who want to join us and cooperate, please send me private message or email.)

However, in terms of sales, you pay for the Block and the BTC separately. Once you pay, we will send you the empty block (in late April), and then once you confirm receiving it, the mining pool will mine the virgin BTC to your block, as a separate transaction. You WILL need to pre-pay a deposit, and extra BTC will be refunded to you after the mining is done."

I'm maybe missing something here, but how can the empty blocks be sent out before the actual blocks (& rewards) are mined as these need printing/engraving onto the said blocks?
