The Ancora Pen Company has announced the production and pre-sale details of its latest product, the Bitcoin Pen. The first in its modern range called the Crypto Pens Series, the Bitcoin Pen represents Ancora’s desire as one of the oldest pen producers in the world to embrace the future of luxury.
Based in Milan, Europe’s capital of style and fashion,
Ancora was one of the founders of Italy’s famed pen industry, having designed and produced its first luxury pen almost a century ago in 1919. Eschewing mass production, its trademark craftsmanship is always apparent in its fully hand-made pens created through hours of painstaking manual labor, just as they were almost a hundred years ago.
Ancora pens are as unique as they are luxurious. Their “Titanic” pen, for instance, had its body crafted from actual parts of the first class cabin from the ship of its namesake. And now, with the emerging technology of Bitcoin gaining the attentions of the elite, Ancora is drawing much anticipation by announcing the production of its first ever Bitcoin pen.
The number of pens to be crafted will be limited, making ownership of this rarity available only to a select few. In total, only 88 fountain pens with an 18-karat gold nib along with 888 roller balls will be produced. Each pen will carry a personalized production number.
Platinum, Gold and Silver Numbered pens – featuring highly-coveted serials such as 01/88, 88/88, 001/888 and 888/888 – can only be purchased with Bitcoin and Ethereum and will each come with a special leather pen case.
For added gloss, a limited number of “gold” numbers will be allocated for each line of pens. Every finishing and special care to each individual pen, from the select materials, to the artisan design process, makes for a desirable, classy personal item or gift.
Sales of the limited luxury Bitcoin pen will begin on Monday, December 18th at 12:00 GMT through a token sale model. Participants of the token sale will have the unique opportunity to purchase these pens at a much lower price than retail by securing it during early production stage at a 25% discount, with the Fountain Pens costing $1,000 each and the Rollerball Pens costing $750 each. At production stage, contributors can purchase Fountain Pens at $1,250 each and Rollerball Pens at $1,000.
Deliveries will begin from March 2018 through to May 2018.
Retail prices for the Fountain Pens will start at $2,500 and for the Rollerball Pens at $2,250.
Next February, Ancora will announce a new production line for another cryptocurrency-inspired pen. The choice of cryptocurrency to be featured on the new line will be decided by customers, with a voting system set up to allow customers to pick their favorite cryptocurrency. To participate, customers should visit and take part in the vote in Ancora’s Telegram channel.
To add even more value to the purchase, Ancora will open a unique marketplace in June 2018, for the trading of limited edition and collectible writing instruments, where owners can sell, buy and exchange luxury pens online.
One of the very first Italian companies to produce pens and bring fame to the industry, the Ancora brand is that of an illustrious past with enduring quality. Ever since its founder Giuseppe Zanini, realized his dream of creating the perfect pen in his own workshop, Ancora has been carrying on that tradition through to the 21st century.
