Cool idea. Idk if you'd want to do this, but you could run the accents as a kit by itself and then add the top row of the bloomberg keyboard as f13-f24

I have been following Mito's IC for GMK Trader and it looks like his IC is at least a month older than yours, May 5th by mito and June 3rd by you...



We have several terminals in the office and and my colleagues are hype, I'm pretty sure I filled his form and made a couple suggestions after discovering it on Instagram







As a financial advisor (and owner of WOB) I am thrilled for the chance of owning GMK Trader and a replica of Bloomberg keys but this is not an original idea by any means. Most likely an unfortunate coincidence of having two similar ideas. Mito seems to be actively working on the set of keys based on input people provided on IG and Discord for the novelties (crypto vs traditional) for longer than you

Even if he started working on this earlier than early February, it doesn't change the fact that he changed his legends to front print after my IC, which you can see on IG.

irritating considering I would  like to actually own  both the top print and side print versions. But if it's you or him, you're my first bet.

I'm sure at least one person asked about front prints on his design GMK Trader because I did (I wasn't aware about your IC until today while looking for Swiss), so I'm not surprised his design evolved based on feedback. There is also other people on his Discord channel asking for Bloomberg references and offering help.

Not here to accuse anyone so no need to get defensive, all I am saying is that this is not an original idea to begin with as you are both replicating the Bloomberg terminal in one way or the other. Maybe you can reach out and make both coexist because I like Trader and I'm sure I'm not alone, it doesn't need to be one or the other

I think the best outcome for you is to offer this as an accent kit, as many people have already requested. MiTo is...well...MiTo. He has a lot of reach with Drop and therefore a significant advantage with pricing. If you go head-to-head against him with a traditional base kit, it's probably not going to end well for you. On his Discord, he's listed the price of his base kit at $120. That's got to be a very high MOQ to achieve that price for a complete base kit with numpad. Offer this as a cheaper accent kit and you'll have a more compelling reason for people to buy.

I have no idea if MiTo saw this IC or not, but there's a high likelihood you just came to a similar conclusion from different routes.  Recreating a vintage / commercial colorway in MX form always comes with that risk.

Approximately a week two weeks before this IC was posted, I was also starting to develop a Bloomberg-themed keyset.  I had bought a Bloomberg keyboard specifically for that purpose in order to do color-matching.

I won't add a third competitor to this race, but an offer to provide more accurate color standards for the keys stands for both you and MiTo.  I am happy to help you both find RAL or Pantones that are closer to the actual keys (from at least one of the Bloomberg models, as there are probably differences from board to board).

The GMK stock colors just aren't good matches for some of these.

Guaranteed MiTo won't have the good grace or self awareness to not go ahead with his set. It's not like pancake has the rights to a terminal inspired colourway, but it's unfair of MiTo to run it at the same time.

I don't know about that. That set is...how should I put this nicely...uninspiring. The base kit color scheme is just wrong, for example.

I would definitely prefer this set, especially if pancake does an accent kit.

this is nothing, you should see what happened in the GMK retrowave IC lmfao. not only ripping off designs that don't belong to him, but GMK shilling for him.
sad for OP but that's what happens when dealing with the Mito/GMK/Drop association.

Accent kit will cost $45 on trader and one can also get gmk wob for $110 right now with insane coverage, to be delivered in september.

Some tasteless slander going on here I thought it was supposed to be an ic or is gh toxic like this? The argument is pathetic as if OP created proprietary work, he just copied wob, the Bloomberg keys and made a render, you're all parroting as if nobody else could do the same. How about him copying gmk wob which is already for sale and made by drop? And the 1:1 Bloomberg Starboard, did he get approval from someone on Bloomberg in the first place? Keys related to economy exist and were made by different people (i own gmk 9009 from mykeyboard.eu and also the epbt version which comes from cherry G80 9009 from Reuters which I also have). What a toxic thread

This set looks great.
I have a few sets of Bloomberg keys which I've salvaged off old Mighter and Wey trader keyboards, but it would be great to get a set of non-SA-profile Bloomberg function keys.

One thing - before they went super-customized with their keyboards, Bloomberg did a standard 104 key keyboard, and you can choose to use its mappings from the terminal.
This 1994 keyboard used shift+tenkey-zero as its 'Panel' key, so it would be great to have that key for this set too (since switching Panels is a really common action):-

Which means $75 for GMK trader base kit with icons or $85 for Wob base. I'll be getting boomer, zoomer and another Wob with trader10 coupon too

Damn that coupon was posted yesterday and still hasn't been used 50 times, or Drop just didn't bother with the 50 limit.

Not a fan of Mito or his sets, but hard to turn down a spare WoB for $80 with free shipping!

If I may offer a different perspective: the set running on Drop is, well, already running. While Stonks is in IC. GMK lead times being what they are, if you want to get your keycaps as soon as possible (and cheap at that) MiTo's set is the sensible choice here. I feel sorry for OP investing time and energy and money into this project only to be undercut by a different designer but that's the way it is.

I don't personally care for MiTo but to reiterate this set is not a deeply personal lightning strike of inspiration but rather a safe, tried-and-tested design, and as such was up for grabs. MiTo has sway so they got there first, simple as that.

On a sidenote, this entire discussion is weirdly apropos the set's theme.
