Firstly and foremostly: this Auction is in BTC - make your bids in BTC.

Each bid must be a multiple of 0.25 BTC and must be higher than any previous bid made by anyone else.
Your bid must be clear and the first line of your post must look something like: 5 BTC for Icarus
Bidding starts at 2.00 BTC

Anyone can "buy it now" for 15BTC by posting in this thread first: "Buy it now 15BTC"
Yes 15BTC is way too high but I thought I'd clear that up before anyone started asking to buy it before the auction finished.

I will only accept direct BTC payment to myself so yes you'll have to trust me.
It's not hard to find out who I really am if you look in the cgminer code ...
My picture avatar is me also Smiley

This Auction will run until Wed 23 Apr 2013 9:00am GMT+10 (Sydney time)
In the USA that will be very approx around early Tue evening
In Europe that will be very approx around Tue midnight

I live in Sydney, Australia.
Shipping will be added on top of the final auction price.
I will use whatever shipping method the winner prefers, since it's up to the winner to cover the cost in BTC the day I ship it for them.
I will be able to ship it on Wed 23 Apr Sydney time if I have received the BTC very shortly after the auction ends.

If someone does "buy it now" then of course that will end the auction early and I will ship it as soon as I can after that.
It is now ~2am Sun morning in Sydney, so I wont be able to ship it before Monday morning in about 31 hours.

Details:

I have 2xIcarus FPGA miners that I received from Ngzhang ~a year ago, not long after the Icarus were first available.
1 of them I was given for supporting the Icarus, the other I paid full price for.

I wish to auction only 1 of them since I don't need them both any more - I only need 1 to continue doing the cgminer support for the Icarus - so of course I will keep 1 - but I wish to auction the 2nd one.

Fully functional - full ~379.5 MH/s - been almost non-stop mining for ~1 year.

I have the original box it came in (see photo)

I'm auctioning the Icarus board shown in the photo (which of course includes the fan) plus the plug pack shown in the photo plus the USB cable you can see part of, attached to the board.

I use the plug pack whenever I have it next to my desktop testing code - and that was last used only a few weeks ago - so I know the plug pack is 100% OK also. Note it is the two prong plug on it as you can see in the photo.

I reserve the right to cancel the auction if necessary for reasonable cause.
If I do so, all bids are cancelled.
I'm reserving this right simply because this is the first time I've done an auction like this, and want an escape hatch just in case I've missed something critical.

OK that ends the auction then.
That was quick.
I'll talk to you in PM.

Thought I'd add, firstly, that HorseRider did indeed pay me the 15BTC on the day of the auction.
Very happy Smiley

Secondly, I posted the Icarus to him today (first thing Monday morning) and hopefully that will get to him as fast as is possible (and fast enough for his requirements)

what method did you ship to him?  I am curious because he is one of my business partners and I need to ship to him as well.

AusPost has a 'courier' post option that costs about 4 times as much (I paid the postage $50) called Express COURIER International
It says 2-4 business days.
I'm looking at the tracking myself also coz I'm curious how quickly it will get there and considering where it's going I'd hope it is quick and closer to 2 than 4 days.
