On Bitcoin Confrence 2012 Bitcoin Magazine issue #1 with more than 20 autographs of many Bitcoin “celebrities” present on the conference was auctioned off. It went for 7 BTC. Unfortunately, the buyer has failed to pay and collect his copy.
Bittalk Media Ltd, publisher of Bitcoin Magazine, will hold the auctioned copy for next two weeks to allow the auction winner to contact us to pay and collect his purchase. We will request photo of the claimant so that the auctioneer could confirm that the magazine was sold to the claimant on the auction. If no one shows up claiming his purchase we will have to auction it off again.
There were only 7 copies of Bitcoin Magazine issue #1 brought by us to the conference. They all were autographed by more than 20 Bitcoin Personalities, including (in no particular order): Max Keiser, Stacy Herbert, Nefario, Mike Hearn, Tony Gallippi of Bitpay, Mihai Alisie of Bitcoin Magazine, Molecular, Vladimir, Meni Rosenfeld, Roman of bitfloor, Josh of BFL and many others. 2 copies were transferred to private collectors, 1 copy is now looking for it’s owner and 4 copies remain in our storage with tentative plans to be eventually auctioned off on upcoming Bitcoin Conferences.
Bitcoin Magazine is the realized vision of Mihai. From Issue #1, which was shipped from his living room in Romania, to today Bitcoin Magazine bears Mihai’s imprint. Bitcoin Magazine has grown as he has grown with the magazine. What started out as a team of people that didn’t have any experience in the publishing industry, is now distributing a physical magazine internationally and in Barnes & Noble bookstores across the US. Online we reach more than 100,000 readers. You should be at least as proud as us, if not prouder, of this achievement.
