How cool is that guy? That could be you. It could be me. It can be all of us!

I’m excited to finally bring the symbolic Bitcoin logo to the promotional power of an open umbrella. Whether tromping through damp the city sidewalks, at wet sporting events or on the 18th green of your favorite golf course, there is no mistaking the impact of the umbrella form. The marketing potential, branding/ identity strategies, conversation-piece starters, etc are all obvious to anyone of us who has ever tried to talk Bitcoin to family, friends and strangers. Getting the conversation going is sometimes half the battle. However, walk down the street in a bright orange BTC umbrella and these opportunities multiply exponentially. Stand in the gallery of a televised golf event with a bright orange BTC umbrella and lots of people are going to notice. You can see why I JUST HAD TO DO THIS!

This is going to be a first-to-market product. We all are going to be the first people in the world sporting a Bitcoin Umbrella!
While I haven't settled on the frame & handle (see OPTIONS below), I do have the rest of the design nailed down.

  • Central One Color silkscreen Print (engineered across panels)
  • Our manufacturer's standard orange is comparable to the Pantone color in the BTC logo (see below)
  • 44" canopy
  • Custom build per order
  • 600 minimum order
  • 50% deposit down
  • 65-90 days depending on frame order

I've included a survey above that relates to the 6 product images below. Please help me choose the most popular choice of frame & handle. I'd appreciate it immensely.  Smiley
Note: Ignore the heart logo, it's for reference only

Manual Open Folding

Auto Open/ Manual Close

Auto Open/ Close Folding

Auto Open Wood Frame

Auto Open Steel Frame

Clipless Aluminum Frame

Prices are included on the option images above. They include shipping within the US. International shipping is available but will be extra. For those interested in wholesale or bulk orders the prices represent around a 35% savings over MSRP depending on the frame we pick. The initial batch is going to bear the cost of the initial setup fees and samples, but that can easily be offset by the product being first-to-market and not found anywhere else on the planet. My thoughts are that this first batch will sell online (eBay, Amazon, here, other places) for $48.99. This first run could potentially be collector items as well.

The prices quoted in the options are close to the real thing but still may change depending on how popular this product is. I'll be selling pre-orders with BTC & XCP (see Next Steps below) and I'm hoping the volatility in both currencies reduces over the weekend so I can nail down a reliable, translated fiat price.

Like I mentioned above, I know the fabric we're using, we just need to pick the frame.

Once a clear winner emerges in the survey I'll post the pre-order details. I've set up an asset on Counterparty called UMBRELLA. The asset has 600 shares representing the 600 umbrellas in the minimum order. More can be made if the first batch becomes more popular than I've anticipated. UMBRELLA will be pegged to the bitcoin umbrellas 1:1 and will be exchanged for the real thing once they arrive at the warehouse.

Payments will be made by either sending BTC to the UMBRELLA address or sending XCP to the UMBRELLA address. My first thought is to put 300 shares on the DEX for XCP payments and send UMBRELLA individually to bitcoiners who want to pay in BTC. Either way everyone will need a Counterparty wallet ( in order to send/receive & trade UMBRELLA. You heard right, you'll be able to trade these on the DEX while waiting for the factory to deliver the final product!

I'm excited about this offering and I'm here to answer any questions or field any suggestions.

Paul is being worked on. It will contain the same information as here but serve regular customers not part of this pre-sale.
