This just in, i received my shipment of 1024 bitecoins.


What is it?

bitecoin is the better bitcoin. Why better? Well, it's obvious:

- there are 21 Million bitcoins, but only 1024 bitecoins.
- bitcoins are deflationary because of limited supply and unforeseen loss, while bitecoins are going to be eaten, leaving far fewer on the market -> huge deflation
- bitcoins can not be turned into bitecoins. bitecoins on the other hand are easily bitten of, turning them into bit coins.
- bitecoins come in pairs.
- with bitecoins, you can attach your business card to give them away to customers / people you want to get interested in bitcoins.
- bitcoins can not be flipped, bitecoins on the other hand can, and they come up 0 or 1, just as you'd expect.
- bitecoins have cool 7 bit ascii, not that fancy new 8 bit stuff.
- bitecoins feature your favorite movie star on the front and back.
- bitecoins taste better.
- i'm the only undeserving early developer, i own 100%! Woohoo!

So, what's the deal? Right now, i'm sitting on a stash of 1024 fine belgium chocolate bitecoins, packaged in pairs, i.e. 512 packages. (i've actually got 550 packs, to be able to sort any bad ones out, but i'll destroy the surplus in my stomach / my girlfriend's stomach, i promise!)
I'll be selling those at a price of probably somewhere below 1 btc per package, including shipping, the final price is not yet set, as i'll have to determine shipping costs etc., but it'll not be above 1 btc. Btw, this is a non-profit, just-for-fun enterprise for me.
I'll not sell more than a reasonable amount to any single buyer, i want these spread around. They probably make a good gift for someone you want to get interested in bitcoins, a birthday present for the bitcoin lover, whatever.
Right now, i'll go into the weekend, so i'll start taking orders from monday on. I'll only be able to ship during next week, since i'll also be on vacation for the rest of August. Yeah, timing's bad, but the whole creation process of these thingies took me a few weeks longer than originally planned. So, order them next week, or you'll not see them before September.

Please don't order here on the forums, don't order by pm, i think i'll set up a small website over the weekend. Btw, if somebody wants to create that site, i'll be offering a few btc / maybe a bitecoin as a reward, pm me here.

So, all in all, no orders this weekend please, i just wanted to let get your mouths all watery prematurely ;-)

A few pics:

with a business card in the lid, you may put your own there:

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

OK! I'll bite. I can't believe I just said that.

I'll build/design your simple website. FOR FREE! No BTC. No Chocolate. That's if you don't mind self-hosting a Wordpress theme, as your CMS, on Hostgator. I'll be using artisteer to design it. The back end would be easy for you to modify, and you can always recontact me if/when you run into a problem.

Why, you may be asking yourself, would I do this for you? Because your product is killer!

I only have one MF'in problem with it--Now this board with be populated with women (and we all know how they get when they eat it, and they'll be coming to this board for...).

You should talk to Gabriel Beal about putting some of these on MetaCo.in!

Thank you, Drifter.

Oops! I think you were talking about the chocolate and not my free offer.

Bitsquirrel thinks it's very cool, too.

Ok, right now, Phinnaeus is working on the website, i've already talked to bit-pay.com about payment processing, and i'm thinking about offering a metaco.in deal as soon as they are back up and running.

Anything else i should do to get his started? What do you think?  Smiley

Just an update:

unfortunately, due to heavy workload in my daytime job  this week(don't get me started), i'll have to postpone the start of sales for this chocolate coin until after my vacation.

So, sorry, no chocolate this month, but all the better in September, when you start shopping for christmas gifts  Grin
