THE STORY

Blocko begun as an idea in my head over 8 months ago as a way of getting involved and being able to create something for the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain community.

The idea is simple - I have created a line of 4 1/2 inch vinyl figurines that celebrate our shared culture - giving a nod and a wink to the myths and legends that take us to where we are today. The markets may bleed for now but with each figure that you collect and display on your shelf, office desk or even your bedside table I hope that they will do exactly what they intend - brighten up your day as well as being a precursor to conversations and stories that you will share with your friends and family. 

UPDATE 1: I have also now decided to link each figure to a custom Blockchain which will not only allow you to verify the authenticity of each figurine and show the limited piece number but also get some cool facts such as origin data once the NFC has been scanned. This is a work in progress and I will utilize the technology to the fullest.

UPDATE 2: Also I will be drawing up savings pot (verified by blockchain) where I will deposit 10% of profits from each figure to launch further Crypto/Blockchain ideas in the future aimed at promoting awareness and bringing Crypto to the everyday masses. 


THE INSPIRATION

Satoshi Nakamoto could be anybody and for that reason, it took me a while to find design direction. In the end, I went with a selection of people that could be Satoshi and at the same time - could not be. I settled for people that are part of the reason we are here today entering a new era of freedom, financial self control and decentralization. I chose people who are embedded in the culture that we celebrate. I chose these 3 because we salute you.

Nick Szabo, Hal Finney & Dorian Nakamoto
Nick Szabo, Hal Finney & Dorian Nakamoto

Nick Szabo - Whether or not he is Satoshi there is little doubt that his ideas and work had a major influence on the creation of Bitcoin and the future of decentralized currencies. Nick's dress style has given our Satoshi his gun metal grey blazer.  

Hal Finney - A pioneer of Cryptography and one of the first people to use Bitcoin other than Satoshi. We took his trademark smile that was always on show also added in his colorful Hawaiian style shirts that he was known to sport. Rest in peace.

Dorian Nakamoto - His electric graying bob cut has made it onto our character as we believe he is embedded into the culture that we share. NOTE: A few revisions will be made to this for our final production model as the painting and molding techniques are more advanced.

THE FUTURE

Our journey doesn't just end with Satoshi. With a successful Kickstarter campaign we hope to be able to go on to produce a line of different vinyl toys as well as other FUN merchandise that we believe isn't currently being offered.We already have concepts for numerous projects including but not limited to:

  • Ethereum
  • Ark
  • Neo
  • Stellar Lumens
  • Litecoin
  • Monero
  • Dogecoin
  • Nano

We also will will be branding out into people who have made have a serious impact on blockchain and will release limited pieces of notable figures including:

  • Elizabeth Stark (Lightning Network)
  • Charlie Lee (Litecoin)
  • CZ (Binance)

and there might even be a demand for the villains :)

Risks and challenges

Delays from the factory - I have already requested the schedule of the factory so that I could produce a accurate timeline for this campaign of when the figures can go into production and when they will be finished. I have accounted for any delays within the projected schedule and should with everything going smoothly be able to delivery much sooner than stated.

Post sample quality - The figure displayed for the purpose of this Kickstarter is 3D printed and hand painted. Once the mould is paid for and made - I will request a final sample made in in vinyl and painted by computer. I will then have to quality check this and make any alterations (if required) to make sure everything is perfect. The final piece will look as close as possible to the 2D image.

Rest assured, this project is being made with love. Any delays or issues that arrive I will overcome without sacrificing the quality of the figure that is delivered to you.
