OP updated:

As Zoran made the kind offer for shipping here are the ticket prices. You can buy as many as you want. Choose a custom ticket number or get a random one!


DASH PEAKS 01 (sculpture): 335/256 = 1.30859375 Dash
DASH PEAKS 02 (sculpture): 310/256 = 1.2109375 Dash
DASH 01 (painting): 170/256 = 0.6640625 Dash
DASH 02 (painting): 170/256 = 0.6640625 Dash
DASH 03 (painting): 210/256 = 0.8203125 Dash

Can we fix the price to dash? No way to handle dash/btc fluctucations


really need to do some rounding here - lol

limit to 1-2 dec. places

Yes ,we can fix the price to Dash.
Then please give us a target price, and don't be shy to add some little extra for a generic worldwide shipping.
Dash prices fluctuate, but we all believe they will appreciate in the future.

(Dash 01 piece)/256 = price per ticket.

A beauty of crypto's is exactly the precision of the absurdly long decimal accuracy.

Uh - looks like they are going to sell all of them - get ready :-D
Looks like Pille set the lottery even higher.
At first,I thought about lottery for one of my Dash artworks,and i suggested painting -Dash 01 -.
Pille made a lottery excell sheet for ALL my artworks and I LIKE the idea.
I would like to sell ALL Dash artworks.
But i think there will be no interest for ALL.

Maybe one at a time until demand fizzles out? It could draw more attention if it's an ongoing thing

I think it would make sense for point C if there are not enough tickets sold, to pick a winner, and offer the option to the winner to either buy the remaining tickets needed for the sale,or allow another potential winner to buy remaining tickets. If there are still no takers funds get donated.

I'm ok with the terms except for point C, which instead of there not being a winner we should take the number from the next hash, until a winner is eventually found as Sub-Ether suggested.
This is a valid point, except there is no guarantee the ticket sale would cover the total cost for the artwork.
Imagine only 100 tickets sold in total ... he would be forced to "sell" the artwork at an undervalued cost.

My model mimics usual typical social lotteries, where if a winner is not found, the funds are given away to charities for the good of societal enterprise. In this case it's not a charity, so if no winner is found, Zoran gets a very warm "thank you" for his dedication to our project.

There's a better chance of filling all the tickets if we just do one piece, imho. How much demand do we have? It's almost 1200 Dash. Paging Otoh...
I agree. I think it's a bit too ambitious to go for all five at once. If the raffle for one piece is successful perhaps we can buy a bit of time and then put up a second

But then Zoran won't get the full amount for the piece
Ok, How about this for point C...

If less than 256 tickets are sold the winner will be asked to make up the difference. If there is no winner we should take the number from the next hash, until a winner is eventually found and then the winner will be asked to make up the difference. If the winner choses not to make up the difference the next winning block will be used and that winner will be asked to make up the difference. This will be repeated up to 10 times until the winner agrees to make up the difference, or if none of the winners agree to make up the difference then the DASH will be donated to Zoran.

This gives a pretty high chance of a winner been found and Zoran getting the full price for the art work.

For the poll, either escrow party is good with me. And for the last one, go with dazman's suggestion. That is perfect.

Ok, so can we get some deposit addresses so we can get this going.
Lets wait a bit until we have a solid community consensus. Nothing has been definitely agreed on.

One thing about the poll though, seriously, this is for 1 artwork! More is just chaos right now.
Zoran has very kindly included shipping fees to the price, so lets not abuse the artist ;)

Had an additional thought...

If we reach the point in which the DASH is donated to Zoran, can Zoran agree that he will put up the art work for sale to the community with the price of "the difference" for 1 month and if it's not sold after 1 month then he may do what he wants with it. But doing this will increase the chance of this great art staying in the DASH community as somebody will probably snap it up at the cheaper price.

I see MangledBlue has a dash address in the signature above. I am real tempted to hit the send button..... LOL. I guess I'll sit tight until everyone is satisfied.

I'll be back tomorrow (12h+). Hope we have enought votes until then to know what item we start with and which address you have to send to.
You will have to do this steps:

1. (!!!) post your address from where sending, amount of dash and favourite ticket(s) numbers in this thread. first come first serve. if you don't post ticket numbers I'll choose randomly. you can buy multiple tickets at once, but please calculate accurate!

2. send the amount to escrow, I'll update the excel sheet from time to time (and/or give access to escrow person)

Good idea but, if we dont sell all the tickets there are not enough funds.

only 1 artwork is better, I would be surprised if there was enough interest to take all the tickets, but we could reach one.

I have a suggestion if it came up short, (could be way short, who knows), the winner is unlikely to want to pay the large difference and likewise its unfair for Zoran to sell it for half the value.
If the winner does not want to pay the diff then the total pot is split 50/50 between Zoran and the winner, helps Zoran keep them on the market and still have a lottery winner and make happy chappies all round, sound fair ?
