Now that it looks like my bounties will be won soon, I had better clarify some of my rules:

Make sure you contact me ASAP when your submission hits the Reddit frontpage. I'll need to verify it at that time, since I don't think there's any way to verify it later. "Reddit frontpage" is the first four pages of the default frontpage or "all" view.

The digg count will be "locked" when you contact me. I won't continue paying for more diggs, though you might wait to contact me until a certain number of diggs is reached (and risk someone else contacting me first).

(This only applies to my 3,600 BTC bounty.)

Who has access to the escrow with those 8400 BTC (1NLPqEyWo9HzPmXG2H8uGG4NBFCV31NarD)? I see that wallet from head post is almost empty...

Thanks. I'll just use that, then. But someone needs to notify me when a video makes it to the front page, as I don't check Reddit every day.

The bitcoins are in a mybitcoin account.

Myself,Kiba and the op have access to it. The first post probably should be updated but I dont have control of that.

I'm skilled in flash, design, audio, voice and animation.

Is this bounty too far underway for anyone to join in?

Want to commission art? I'll draw a fully colored & shaded piece for only 5 BTC. Give me a PM and throw the BTC my way: 1CU4zyBYWnFyrbc998HwGx3zdV3MAWdzUp

Sorry for not coming on the forums right after the meetup - I came back to a pile of work waiting for me. The reception of the movie at the meetup was very positive. We had one last minute change to the credits, but the video should go up today.

Ok, well, the website is only half done, but I'm tired of keeping everybody waiting.

I'll strive to quickly improve the site - feedback is welcome. And if you have a cool Bitcoin service that could help a newbie that isn't on there yet, please let me know.

Now onto the subject of bounties: If we win the main bounty I will recoup the costs for this video (exactly 2000 BTC b/c our motion graphics designer gets 2000 BTC minus audio costs) and the rest (6400 BTC) plus any other bounties or donations we receive will become a fund for promoting Bitcoin. I'm thinking of things like:

- Additional, more in-depth videos
- Updates/improvements/features for weusecoins.com
- A donation to the faucet
- Sponsorships (e.g. paying a popular podcast to mention Bitcoin in their opening)
- Posting bounties for usability features etc.
- Other ideas are most welcome!

The reason I want to reinvest the bounty in this way is that I think with Bitcoin being an open source project the marginal utility of having even a small marketing budget is rather large. I own a lot of Bitcoins and I'm good at doing a lot with a small budget, so with the bounty as a permanent Bitcoin marketing fund, I'm hoping to be able to do some good over the next year or so. Smiley

The address for the Bitcoin marketing fund is 17eSZivDJpuJp9TxezTXVxkgLbsr3XZM1i - we will make a page where everything we spend from this address will be listed and of course the block chain will allow you to confirm the amounts are accurate and how much is still there.

First step for winning the main bounty is getting Satoshi's approval for the video, so I've emailed him and will let you know how it goes. If we can't reach him, I propose asking Gavin for approval instead.

As for Reddit and Digg bounties - I have no interest in those sites and no idea how to promote something there so I won't bother. Feel free to post links to the video on those (and other) pages if you like, any bounty we win from theymos will be added to the marketing fund and will go towards further videos etc as stated above.

Finally, the video:
http://www.weusecoins.com/ or
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um63OQz3bjo


The video is released under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution license. If you would like to provide an HTTP mirror or seed the video on Bittorrent please contact me for the original H.264 1080p file.

Thanks for the CoinPal mention.  I'll keep a close eye on my inventory to try and meet the buying rush as this excellent video goes viral.  Thank you to all involved.

I love your idea for continued Bitcoin marketing efforts.  My vote is for more videos.  When I first heard of Bitcoin, I spent a couple hours trying to find decent ones to help me clarify my understanding of the PDF.

This is excellent work! I hope you have good luck getting Gavin or Satoshi approve of it.

Also, how come it said no fees at the end? Maybe it should said "very cheap".

Awesome video! It wins three of my goal bounties:
- How to get started.
- (Professional-looking animation and audio.)
- (Long-term value for the Bitcoin community.)

I have sent 300 BTC.

Awesome video indeed, and thank you for reinvesting the bounty! Your efforts are much appreciated.

Btw, maybe it'd be a good idea to repost in the main forum because probably not many people check out this subforum.

This is actually a pretty good video Smiley

Well done!


PS.  Am I the only one who thinks that this video could replace Gavin's speech video on bitcoin.org?

Overall, it looks video good. A bit too fast, IMO, though-- I had to skip backward to keep up a few times!

Only other suggestion I have is to mention tradebitcoin.com on the webpage.

This is for the mybitcoin account. Feel free to donate even more bitcoin into it.

Also, do not donate to the address listed at the beginning of the thread as a precaution. The address I listed in this post definitely belong to the mybitcoin escrow account.
