Documentary on the GoldCube™ (Wishlist)
I would like to see a documentary or even just a webpage dealing with the history and manufacturing of the GoldCube™. I have heard @Roy Sebag and @Josh Crumb comment on the fact that everyone told them that it could not be done. The GoldCube™ is a metaphor for BitGold itself.
Topics I would like to see covered:
• When and how the idea of the GoldCube™ came about.
• Finding a manufacturer.
• Initial run size.
• Video of manufacturing, quality control, laser etching, packaging.
• When or if more will be made once the initial stock depletes.
• Why is a 3x3x3 = 27 GoldCube™ plastic box provided with each shipment
On close inspection of a GoldCube™ it appears that the cube stock is extruded through a 8.04mm X 8.04mm square die and then each cube is sliced off at 8.04mm. It also appears that each cube is trimmed a bit to remove any excess gold, however this may just be an artifact of the manufacturing process.
