    SHOPKEEPER

    What would people buy in the future? With this reward, you will collaborate with me to CREATE AN AMAZING shop in the story's futuristic world. Just choose a) the items the shop will be selling, b) the style of glasses the shopkeeper will be wearing, and c) your favorite cryptocurrency that the shop will accept. The shopkeeper will look like you (or anyone else you choose), drawn by our awesome illustrator. You will receive a high-resolution digital illustration of you and your shop.

    The shop will not be part the book because we will complete our collaboration after the book publishes. However, it may appear in future projects or on my website (with your permission). All rights will belong to you.

    You'll also receive 1 HARDCOVER copy of "99 Bitcoins and an Elephant" signed by the author + sticker insert + digital wallpaper + EBOOK DELUXE.
