MAME tokens!
« on: October 06, 2020, 05:09:17 pm »
Hi all, I haven't been around much in recent years but I am the guy that used to make MAME and BYOAC tokens. I stopped 5-6 years back because of waning demand, but it's been a while so I figured I'd check the temperature of the market again to see if it would be worth ordering another 10,000 MAME tokens.

Santoro,

If the question in the survey is any indication somewhere around $0.30 each + shipping ( 200 for $60 + shipping ) - probably a bit more for smaller quantities.

Good to hear from you, friend!

I'm on the fence. I'd be more inclined to Drop $60 for BYOAC, or something community built like you used to do. I understand that is an additional fee (and effort) to put down for a new design, but I don't do much with mame.net, so I don't know know if I am that hyped for that exact design. Wouldn't mind a cross community design of some sort. I would easily be down to buy at least some. A batch for $30, I would slap down money no mame ones, no problem.

+1 for me.  I'd be more interested in a BYOAC design.

OK - well it's clear I will not be making any new MAME tokens for a while ever :)  That's the bad news. 

The good news is that the comments about BYOAC tokens made me go dig out my old leftover stock and there are a good amount of some of the tokens left.  More than I remember.    I will start a new thread for selling them.    Take a look, maybe there is something in there for you.

Here's the thread:   Token Sale
