Hello!

I am Crypto Imperator, maker of physical crypto coins.

I am posting here, as some time ago theymos opened the following thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5111005.0
asking forum users about the possibility to create a custom coin for the forum 10th anniversary.

One user posted an idea I loved (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5111005.msg51139449#msg51139449), using the famous reddit drawing of "Bitcoin, Magical Internet Money" : https://medium.com/@paulbars/magic-internet-money-how-a-reddit-ad-made-bitcoin-hit-1000-and-inspired-south-parks-art-b414ec7a5598

So I designed this:


And posted a thread in the collectibles section asking for feedback: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5148409.0

Following the advice, as this is a creation potentially all forum users may want/like it should be jointly discussed by the whole forum. (Pending theymos opinion)

My original idea, was to make something similar to my other releases, a funded silver coin (that means it has a private key under an hologram) and to etch each buyers username at the back. But as some have pointed out, maybe a "token" coin is more suited for the occasion.

If you have some time please post what you think about:

1) Funded (0.001BTC or so) / Not funded, in the second case the design for the back will be completely different (Ideas welcome)

2) Silver / Other metal

3) Engraving for whoever wants it / No engraving at all


Hope we can create something special for the forum!

Love it. I would like to petition the wizard be replaced with a clown wearing an East German Stazi officer's hat though given the overall trend of the forum over the past 10 years. I think that would be more appropriate.

I like the design it is more of simplicity, what I suggest is if the side are not just in circles but something in text related to bitcoin or the forum. And one more, replace the bitcointalk text and replace it with Bitcoin Forum instead.

I have little suggestion on design. You may create the logo similar to the bitcoin with axe kind hitting on it with the bitcointalk text flying around there. I mean it closely need to show similarity with mining kind of axe and bitcoin.

Coin can be Silver or Brass

Engraved likely great.

This would be great if theymos had put a green light or somehow named you officially as the maker and distributor of collectible token because if not you are just selling and distributing an unofficial token of BCT. Maybe the next step for you is to talk to theymos personally so that you can officially affiliate the token to BCT. Also when looking at the medium article you provided the image of the Wizard King is created by South Park Digital Studios and my concern is have you asked their permission to use the image freely and with consent? Because we all know that the BCT community is strongly against plagiarism and that also includes copyright of images, we don't really want our community being associated with a stolen image for our official token.

Thanks for your comment!

I have PM'd theymos, hopefully he will reply with what he thinks.

Regarding the image, I think you got confused. South Park drawers were inspired by the original Bitcoin Wizard, not the other way around. So there are no possible claims, moreover the drawing "owner" does not accept donations nor retributions from it.

I really like the design, I'm already wondering how the wizard would look on an actual coin.
Anyway here's what I think:

Not funded, to keep the price down
Preferably silver
No engraving, again to keep the price down.

The design looks great, but have you contacted drawing author for permission to use his intellectual property?

I see you offer an option to fund it btc. When money got involved, wont this redditor ask for a "peace of a pie" ?

Please, take some time to read the rest of the thread as the issues has already been discussed before, for reference: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/7jj0oa/im_donating_5057_btc_to_charitable_causes/dr6syg7/?context=3

The creator does not want any type of retribution for it.

I remember the movie of The Hobbit on the design of the coin, and its really cool.
Its ok if its not funded, made of silver, and have an option of engraving or no engraving.
I would love to order in the future, so I will watch this thread until we have a final thread of this.

What if each user that wanted one stakes an address and pay from it to theymos, after enough has been raised to make it cheap enough then we could look further, like it might take a while but it will be worth it.

Keep in mind that premiums on physical crypto are literally insane, and only willing to be paid by a small group of fanatical collectors. It takes a lot of effort to fund/hologram/customize each coin with understandably drives up the cost of production. I could be wrong, but If you want it to be a Bitcointalk coin that just general users buy, you are going to have to keep costs low enough that people outside of the collectibles market don't laugh themselves into a coma. If its going to be a small limited batch for the collectibles section folk, I suppose go ahead with any plans to denominate/fund/hologram/customize with names.

Just something to consider

well said Cheesy

If done correctly, the cost of the tokens should be less than the postage to ship them......  not like I speak from experience or anything.... Tongue
