Hello again everyone,
I am looking for a few early adopters for the OtherCoin off-chain payment system - we're getting ready to order our first commercial batch from the hardware manufacturer, we're still ironing out the bugs and the UI and provisioning system, but if you'd like to play with one sooner rather than later, this is your chance. This initial batch will go for 0.35 BTC/unit
, the final price will probably be lower but I'm trying to play it safe with the initial batch.
You can also get a pack of two for 0.6 BTC
(which is probably a good idea since you need someone else with an OtherCoin to send/receive funds to/from). You're also going to need an Android phone with a microSD slot, with Android 4.1 or newer. OtherCoin supports Bluetooth smartcard readers and NFC, but the cgToken Bluetooth reader is just a prototype for now (we have one on loan from the manufacturer) and the NFC version is using the Yubikey Neo (we need to get a few of those as well, but we haven't really tested them as thoroughly as the microSD version).
Finally, if you are interested in becoming an exclusive reseller in your country (or region), please contact me at razvan.dragomirescu (at) veri.fi , in this thread or via PM and make us an offer. Please make sure you can promote this in your area (conferences, meetups, etc). We are looking for _exclusive_ resellers, this is your chance to secure distribution in your country or even your larger region (e.g. North America, Australia, China, etc) and support the launch of the OtherCoin at the same time. We are willing to entertain lower offers given that the product will take a few more weeks to be fully available, but this is no KickStarter project, the hardware is operational and the software works (as demonstrated in the YouTube demo I posted above).
If you have any questions, ask away. If you want to place an order or just show your support, send funds to 1VeriFivRsUxUqdWMgUmHrgfQXL9J3dfe
and post here (or email/PM me) to indicate what you've ordered and where you want it shipped. Shipping is included in the price above, as well as VAT where applicable. If you need a VAT invoice, please mention that as well.
P.S. Resellers not only get the exclusive rights for OtherCoin in their area but also the rights to the Card2Coin sub-project (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=339389
) that will become part of the OtherCoin ecosystem, closing the loop by allowing the exchange of OtherCoin keys to dollars directly, without ever having to touch the blockchain. This is not ready yet, it's going to be operational this fall (around September).
