Nice and very inspirational colorway, also a bit weird with alpha color arrows in base ;D. I don't often see these keys like this, normally they are either in mod or accent color

I dig the concept for it, I think the base color should be less tan and have a more blue tone to fit the 100 dollar bills' main color as opposed to that spot on the right of it. It looks like a solid foundation though!

Very nice! I was expecting green alphas but I think they look great. Would be fun to have the $ in green but I can see plenty wanting this without the money green association too.
Definitely watching progress on this one

I forgot to mention that the R3 pipe key (used for ISO layout, located in the right of the ansi enter in the base kit) plus the second B in space bar kit should be in alpha color. Also, in numpad, one of the enter key + R2 "-" + R3 "+"  keys should be in mod color as well.

I think it would fit the stated theme better if you switch the accent colors with the alpha colors. Not enough of green as is.

I would love to see alpha colored mods, for a set like this I think it would convey the theme a bit better. This is interesting though. The green also looks a bit too saturated to me.
This and the swiss cheese keyboard is the next generation of keyboards

I think 1 set of arrow keys should be in mod color, right? Currently the base kit contains 2 set of arrow keys with accent color. Also, there's already a second b in base kit so you should remove the other in space kit.
