Continued interest. Make sure you let us all know when it's launched and we can order - why not 32GB. 8GB seems a bit small these days??

I have not read any think but the main post


I would recomend if you wanted this to take off you should make it a raid 1 usb stick

eg any data that gos on the stick is backed up to the card it self after you push the usb stick part back in to the card so if or when the usb stick dies you have a back up of it from the last time you cloced it

it wont help you if u lose the card but may save you from bad usb ports that kill the usb stick or maybe from watter dmg

any way good idea but make it back it up so the size of the credit card is not just wasted space

I would love to offer full custom graphics per card but sadly the answer is f. Shipping is available to most of the EU, Canada and USA.

I will run a poll and if the majority decides that 32GB is the way to go I will change it to 32GB otherwise I think 8GB is the sweet spot between price and size.

USB wallet?  Meaning it is a USB memory stick shaped like a credit card, or is there something else to this?

It's just a simple usb memory stick made out of alloy that shaped like a credit card. The idea is that you can carry it in your wallet and have you bitcoins with you on the go.

so how does one create usb memory stick and running on what os ?

This seems absolutely awesome, but will there be any way to buy just the USB component itself instead of the USB component and the card together?

Will the minimum order of 25 units for you result in only one logo?

I'm not sure what you mean by the "USB component".The minimum order of 25 units is a small problem because as you've said it means that there will only be one logo but if the project gets popular we might be able to negotiate the 25 order minimum.

Hi,

I was wondering if the community would be interested in purchasing a usb wallet that has a bitcoin logo either engraved or printed. The usb wallet would be shaped like a credit card. I would need at least 25 people interested because of the minimum order requirement that the manufacture gave me. I'm still waiting for the full quote from the manufacture so I can announce the prices here.

Here is the description and a picture that I received from the manufacture to give you an idea of what the card might look like:

"Alloy USB Card pushes the boundaries of slim design even further. It’s just 2.60mm thick but can be packed with up to 32GB of solid state memory. The stunning metallic finish presents a crisp and professional image and, of course, the Alloy USB Card can be screen printed in colour or engraved if you prefer. With such an elegant modern design, the Alloy USB Card makes for the perfect corporate gift."



The manufacturer is based in the UK so shipping prices to the US might be a issue.

Thanks,

Teka

UPDATE I: PRICING AND SHIPPING

The 8GB version will cost £12.99 or around BTC0.22
UK Customers will get the item shipped by Royal Mail Signed For 2nd Class for free!
USA,Canada Customers and EU will get the item shipped by Royal Mail Airsure and will have to pay around BTC0.14.
All of the postal services stated above will require a signature upon deliver and are insured.

UPDATE II: ENGRAVED VS SCREEN PRINTED

It seems like the community has decided that the logo should be engraved.

UPDATE III: Warranty, Material and Nand Manufacture  

The drives are made using A grade NAND components from Hynix, Toshiba or Samsung and are made out of 100% recycled aluminium.The manafacture offers a 10 year warranty as standard.

How are you sure it will last 10 years though?

I'm in Ecuador right now.  Think you can ship it DHL?

I can certainly ship it via DHL to Ecuador but they are asking £46 and in case you're wondering UPS is asking £67.

I'm thinking at that price just get an envelope and mail it like a regular letter.  Probably be less than 1GBP

I wished, sadly the royal mail average is around £8 for overseas delivery and it seems like they are asking £7.78 for delivery to Ecuador.

Not true. I imagine this would weight approx 15-20g? http://www.royalmail.com/personal/international-delivery/airmail

Hit stamps then online postage. Ecuador is £1.28 per 20g letter

The cards weigh 30g with all of the conformation they are shipped International Signed For with up to £50 compensation.I'm not losing my rep on this forum over a £17 usb stick.
