Two roads diverged in a yellow wood… Funded in 8 hours!!!!!
Piggy-backers! Big, small and extra large!
Maybe a bit early for a bit of Frost, but we’re a tad emotional right now. A huge thanks to all 390 of you for getting us past our $50,000 funding target in 8 hours! Pigzbe is all systems go!
And a special thanks to Brad Mills for becoming our first VIP (Very Important Piggy), backing the $10,000 reward! We look forward to meeting you soon here in our London office!
Jon Marshall, Adam Amos and Mariam Cisse are on their way to China to visit our suppliers, so expect some lovely updates and images on prototypes and work in progress from the trenches!
Working on a product of this ilk, at a time such as this, took some courage and commitment, but we firmly believe in a future where programmatic and digital currencies will be the norm.
We’re happy, bowled-over, and humbled to see more people than our own mums think Pigzbe should be made, and we’re excited to see the ticker still going up! For now, a few updates and observations:
1. The Siblings Pack (2x Pigzbe with a 31% discount) is surprisingly popular, and has already sparked some ideas on multi-player use. Beyond brothers and sisters, it may work for close cousins, or best friends?
2. Some interesting discussions on colour, gender neutrality and characters. Could there be a Frogzbe, Catzbe or even a Whalezbe on the horizon? We're giving this topic some serious thought! Keep the suggestions coming!
3. Some good pieces from Core77, Fast.Co.Design, Yanko Design, and It’s Nice That. We know the topic of digital money is a polarising one, but we also know it’s one worth fighting for. We stand by our beliefs!
Over and out for now, but keep asking questions, sharing ideas, sending suggestions, and keep telling anyone who will listen about Pigzbe!
TEAM PIGZBE/PRIMO :)
