Merlin’s beard! Galleons on the DEX

As an avid fan of Harry Potter books, there’s nothing more magical among magical coins than the Galleon.

Blockchain technology has made the Galleon more secure, eliminating control from the goblins of Hogwarts or the middle earth and their dragon-slaves (Yeah! I feel bad for those dragons beyond the tunnels underground.)

Seriously, the Galleon token can thrive given that there is a potential community that could support and make use of it: The Pottermore Community.

Let’s dive into the figures.

The Pottermore community boasts an average of roughly 3 Million followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

According to Scholastic, more than 400 million copies of Harry Potter titles have been sold worldwide, and they’ve been translated into 68 languages.

73,472,003 ‘likes’ the Facebook page Harry Potter Movie.

This is going to be a perfect virtual novelty item for all the fans to collect and use at the same time. Pair it with an app? And you’re in business.

Another notable feature is that there’s only 5,000 Galleons released upon the Muggle world every two years on every 31st day of July (Harry Potter & JK Rowling’s birthday) in the form of a cryptocurrency residing on the Bitshares platform. There’s only 1 Million Galleons that will ever grace the Bitshares blockchain and that would take 400 years to give out.

Now that’s truly what we can call “magic internet money.”

  1. J.K Rowling asked What is Bitcoin ?
    It is a large fan community that I wish to see earning Galleons that only Compumatrix holds and distributes

  2. What a brilliant idea. To make a Galleon coin and tie it directly into a massive community that already exists. It would be like making a new super fantastic golf ball made available to all the golfers in the world. How big is the golfing community world wide ? Add Facebook to all of that, and your have something that can easily be mass adopted. Time will tell, to see where this actually goes.

  3. I am a huge Harry Potter Fan and I would love to own some Galleon. I love the whole concept of distribution in small quantities once a year and I do believe it would be a huge hit amongst the fans. We would all be fighting over them (pushing the price up of course!)! Richtisempra!! Alohamora!!

  4. I am not a harry potter fan never have watched any of the movies or read any of the books or marketing products to further the name but honestly seeing this article and knowing people have their hidden passions and their side thoughts like me my comic books of a day gone by — I still watch marvel movies — probably should not but it is who I am — thank you will research

  5. This is why I love Bitshares/Compumatrix! The innovative ideas that form everyday on this platform are brilliant and have the ability to change the world. This is a perfect entrepreneurial idea that can 1.) make money and 2.) boost the popularity of Bitshares/Compumatrix! Thank you for sharing this idea and I will have to try and come up with ideas like this one!
