jjjrmy and I are participating in Startup Weekend in Orlando, and we have created a physical bitcoin gift card.  These are available NOW for pre-orders at the websites:

http://lovebitcoins.org

https://www.giftcoin.net/card

We go on stage to present our startup idea sometime between 5:00 and 7:00 pm.  We would like to win this competition and show some orders for these products!

The actual cards will be available to ship in approximately 2 weeks.  After that, the turnaround time should be a few days.



Price of each card is the face value plus 0.5 BTC, which includes manufacturing and shipping within the United States.

Well done! How do they work?

I'm guessing you can't swipe them or only use partial amounts. You either redeem the whole thing or none at all?

They look like they could be used as cash though, instead of paper, they are plastic cards.

I like!

Some more info would be nice, though.

Also, I fully agree that the cost per card should be the same for each denomination. I do think, however, that there should be bulk order pricing. Any plans for this?

Look at the markup on the 1 BTC Casascius coins.  You will find our product to be a better deal!

Are you affiliated with this project? What is the cost per card if I get 50 1BTC cards?

Is your product made out of brass and laser-etched or out of flimsy plastic?

Yes, check the OP.
50 = $1.75+BTC/each
100 = $1.50+BTC/each
You MUST order before 5PM EST to get this deal.

You should plug the bulk pricing directly into the website for convenience.

We will, at this point its a hackathon and we are frantically finishing our presentation.

Our competition is a dollar-shave-club knockoff for mail order tampons.  Let's get Bitcoin to win this thing!  We need more orders than them!

50% on a 1 BTC card
10% on a 5 BTC card
5% on a 10 BTC card
2.5% on a 20 BTC card (reasonable)
So the fee about $2.50 including shipping. 

You think that is high?   I personally would avoid the 1 BTC one but the others are priced quite nicely.

yes, for what i imagine will be a regular white envelope and a normal stamp, i think its high.  your breakdown only works if your going to buy one card. the fee doesn't come down if i buy a handful. the "free" shipping would be $20 for 4 cards, and i imagine they'll still ship in that same white envelope with the same stamp.

I am going to be frank:

Your artwork and designs depress me. They make me feel like I am staring at old flyers advertising 50% off diapers at Walmart, in a waiting area behind the restrooms.

Suddenly, a large obese woman with a Walmart vest walks by, with toilet paper on her shoe and a sagging scowl on her face. You can see her old, worn-out panties rising up over her shirt from the back.

That's how your designs make me feel. I can only hope my honest perspective motivates you to create better work.

To be specific, it's very bland. Default gradients, stock photos and clip art are only going to take you so far.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

All you really had to say was "I HATE PASTEL COLORS MAKE THEM VIVID" and they might have given your post some consideration. But the undue and insulting criticism was completely uncalled for and unnecessary.

It may of not been. I have a feeling that it makes others feel the same way. When people get the full feeling of what their design produces, they'll understand the reality of the situation.

Yes, I could say I hate pastels but what does that mean? Why do I hate pastels? What do I feel when I see a pastel color? Why is the artist incapable of what I feel?

Criticism requires specifics capable of stimulating understanding. That's why I decided to be rude and honest.

Your characterization of the design this way belies your lack of education of the art and science of industrial design. Oh, I am sure that you could teach a thing or two to Walmart with your business track record. OTOH, talking about obese women's panties is another conversation entirely and best left with your therapist.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Now, if only it was possible to turn these giftcards into debitcards I would actually accept them locally as currency.
