Bumping the thread a bit to try and get more traction. I might have mentioned, I do have at least 1 other person I could likely convince to hop onto the chain, but I'd like to see where this gets first on its own. Be nice not to have anyone I know on the chain ha!

Bengy, you "only" need 23 more posts to bet yourself out of Newbie limbo =p I'm not encouraging spam, of course!

Hey guys,

if you want to receive the DigiPiglet, just send me a name and an address. I'll try to keep in touch with the participants and help them find the next recipient.

Cheers  Smiley

Hi all,
The DIgipiglet has arrived in Wales  Smiley
So far he’s been to
Belgium ? - please correct me if I’m wrong
The Netherlands
Wales, UK
Next stop .... tweetious in....I’ll let him tell you Smiley
I know tweetious was interested early on in the project, so I contacted him and he was more than willing to help with the project and continue the little fellas journey.
Hopefully there’s still many people interested in getting their hands on him and passing him on.
Many thanks all and good luck little piggie
Mbitr

How did the private key get inside the piglet? How is it sealed? How can you easily verify that the piglet has not been cut open? On the website it says uses a double label, so something like other physical bitcoins maybe.

How does one order a piglet of their own, and seal the private key inside? If it's a squishy material, it's probably fun to use, but not very easily "secured".

Hey Dabs

I printed the private key on some high quality paper, rolled it up and stuffed it through a tiny hole I poked in the bottom. It's more of a rupture in the material than a hole, so you can't really pull the piece of paper out unless you cut a bigger hole into it.

Since the Kickstarter campaign didn't get funded, we'll do some work on the product, so expect some changes.

However, our trust chain is still on, currently on its way to Greece after spending some time in the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany Cheesy

Thanks to all who are helping out and participating  Cheesy

Ahh.. okay. maybe make the hole a "one way" kind of thing. Like how boats get stuffed into glass bottles. It's kinda hard to get the boat out without breaking the bottle, or breaking the boat into parts.

Again, it's just a paper wallet in the form of a cute pig.

You tried a kickstarter, maybe you should try a bitcoin fundraiser kind of thing instead (yes, I know, it will look like an ICO, that's how it is.) You're looking at raising maybe 2 or 3 BTC total? Make it a target to hit 10 or something, maybe a public address held in escrow (I'd volunteer myself, but you can feel free to pick anyone else, or 2 of us if you want multi-sig) and everything is tracked on the blockchain.

Could also be individual addresses if people want a little privacy but still want to contribute to your kickstarter in BTC.

Don't send the piglet to me, I'm in the south pole and it's likely a penguin will eat it before it gets to me. Tongue

When I first saw this project many months ago , it had me very intrigued , but also very suspicious. This suspicion is a natural reaction , especially to all bitcoiners that have been involved in the bitcoin / cryptocurrency world for a significant amount of time. After reading some initial posts , I dunno I just liked the idea and product. I ordered one !
The producers of digipiglet took everything that was suggested/ thrown at them and re evaluated the idea and product. I was sent a refund before I even knew I needed one.
They must have spent a lot of time thinking about their product and it’s security in the last few months .
I will say this is still a work in progress and there a several things that need to be tweaked.
I have absolutely no affiliation with this product/company , but I really do hope this product succeeds. I’m more than happy to be envolved with this charitable project and if this helps the company fine  tune it’s final product, kudos to them .
It’s  great there’s input from many , many sources and forum members and I hope it continues.

So happy to see Piggy get some Welsh acquaintances with green dragon. And now all the way to Greece! And possibly Denmark next on the list.

Will be really cool to have toured all of West and Central Europe and Scandinavia, before moving on to somewhere a bit... Far;) Anyone need help with shipping costs if somehow a problem, do get in touch. Don't mind giving this thing a few more nudges!

Good to see updates. Trust chain intact;)

Is there no easier method to do this online? Sending the actual DigiPiglet from one location to the next is a very slow process. Can you guys not

create a "digital" piglet on a website and then get people to pay $5 for every move it makes. I will be nice to see what country gets the Piglet the

most and you can even hold a little competition to see who holds it the most. Put up some prizes like free piglets for the people who grabs it the

most.                                                    --= Something similar to a capture the flag game. =--

DigiPiglet arrived in Greece!

Next stop... Denmark with @JanEmil (parcel is ready & will get dispatched in a couple of hours)

Here are some status updates of the contents of the box so far:

The box that I received was not in good condition. Hence I replaced all packaging materials.  Items included in the box that I dispatched:

1 DigiPiglet (in good condition)
@buwaytress comic strip
Artwork of a piggy with some beans on the bottom right corner (not recall who's it is)
@Mbitr card
@tweetious postcard
3 DigiPiglet stickers

Fingers crossed everything is in there, and nothing got lost till now.

I added some sats at the collection basket total
(TxID: 692a71b42a97c14508d7de54c9023840d8a61393e085eee4f121c23ae0581f3b)




DigiPiglet with local PhysiPigeon



DigiPiglet @ seaside



Ancient Greek DigiPiglet



Postcard top right corner: there is a mention "stamp goes here" so... I did!  Tongue

tweetious, that is some awesome piece of work. And your post, by the way, is just one demonstration of why this trust chain is physical. Kprawn and others might have asked if it could simply be digital all the way but I personally think nothing quite captures this physical aspect. Imagine the story of the DigiPiglet journey across 100 different locations?

Yes, the cost could potentially be prohibitive once it starts going trans-continent, but I'll jump in and remind when I see it do that, that I'll help with postage costs, to some extent anyway.

I slightly messed up with the BTC symbol orientation in my postcard... LOL  Grin Looks more like BCH  Tongue

100 journeys are A LOT... fingers crossed DigiPiglet will survive!

Concerning the cost... well... receiver knows well in advance, that they have to add to the collection basket + cover dispatching shipping fees to next host... hence no hidden surprises here...
