Who is responsible for this?

Awesome job! Grin


Love some of the features:

Value

You and your friends won't need a jeweler to tell you exactly how much this ring is worth.

Decoupling Design

Beautiful rings come and go with the times but the backing of these rings should not. The BTC ring can be reprinted to keep up with the latest styles.

Replacability

Just because something has value doesn't mean that all should be lost when the physical ring is misplaced. The real value of the BTC ring lies in the Blockchain.

Re-upping

As salaries increase, you can upgrade the BTC ring without going to the jeweler.

That's a pretty geeky idea, I gotta say... I mean, yeah, I guess some people may want exactly that and it gets the attention of everybody interested in Bitcoin. But a regular ring is just a symbol for the love between two people. I don't really get why you would want to get money involved with this?

Money is involved either way.  Diamonds aren't cheap, you know.

At least with a BTC ring you can e.g. use a 2 of 3 multisig wallet, give her a key (telling her it's a 2 of 2!) and keep the third key yourself. Cheesy

I don't care that much for diamonds, either. But at least they're considered beautiful by a majority of people. This thing looks rather clunky Cheesy
Oh and cheating your spouse at the time of the marriage isn't a very good foundation for a long-lasting relationship, I guess  Grin Grin

As a nerd, I gotta say I love this! My SO barely knows what bitcoin even is though. That's no ring for me sadly.

As much as I love Bitcoin and Crypto, my wife would not say "Yes" if I proposed to her with that minecraft ring.

She'd probably throw it in ocean, smack me upside the head, then leave me in Aruba when I proposed to her 7 years ago.

Women are silly like that...aesthetics matter to them!   Grin

Hmmm? How is this a minecraft ring? It is just a Bitcoin ring, or rather a ring with a bitcoin address in form of a QR-code.
I find it hard to believe that men don't care for aesthetics. I mean, come on... seriously?

The only bitcoin ring that marries real value and design. Don't store your value in a rock, store it in a block.
I almost died laughing. That is one amazing catch phrase! Sadly my GF wouldn't want such a thing. She just wants a pretty looking ring, how much it costs doesn't matter to her.

Well if there were a bitcoin adress with public key with 200 BTCs micro dotted on there, she would probably go on her knee.  Wink

Geekey but fun. {When I see what people do in Las Vegas, nothing is strange anymore} My wife would carry my nuts in a small bag, if I bought her that ring.  Grin Grin

I'm a man that cares for aesthetics. That's the main reason why I wouldn't use this as an engagement ring.

An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable.

Yeah, I guess the stereotypical man does care about aesthetics to begin with. Otherwise men wouldn't care about the looks of a woman. And true if this was an engagement or wedding ring, best outcome would be 'Oh golly, yeah well.. I'd have said yes, but this thing it kinda ugly, so no thanks"

-snip-

But... its ugly! Id prefer a nice ring with two parts of a private key (encrypted ofc) engraved on the inside.

Not sure about you guys but my girlfriend would say no  Tongue

If she says no because of the ring you have a problem, no matter what ring you choose.

And diamond has to resell value. It is just a piece of stone.

Ha Cheesy Then this is settled. If even nerds or geeks, to be precise, don't like this thing, then who will?

Here are two other places that take bitcoin for engagement rings. There are at least a few more, but these were well established businesses before taking BTC.

At least they do look like decent rings and not some nerd's wet dream. I mean, such a big QR-code has got to be uncomfortable if you wear it on your freaking hand all the time.
