One hour till closure, unfortunately it does not seem as if a lot of people are going to be able to get their bitcoins together in time.

Because of that I am going to extend this until people can get their bitcoins together.  If anyone wants a refund just contact me but this IS HAPPENING, I probably should not have put such a short time limit on it.

For those with a New Zealand bank account and wish to take up this offer you can use https://coined.co.nz/buy/. A spot price in NZD for BTC based on other markets locked in for time of purchase. Price changes every 15 minutes.

Or you could try https://bitnz.com/ but I am not having much luck at the moment with this site. The owner is very slow on communicating.

Edit Just got my funds! My mistake, did not specify my  'code' when making cash deposit to link my funds to my account.

Does MinePeon support the ASICMiner Block Erupter USB or do you think it will have support fairly soon after receiving the equipment?

It does (in theory, I have yet to test it)  It will most definitely require a powered hub though!

My Butterfly Labs ASIC is running directly off it but it has its own power supply.

UPDATE ON GROUP BUY: Everything has come to a halt over the weekend as people attempt to get bitcoins, I am still accepting new orders though.

I managed to get just over 50 paid and done for before the weekend and everything went dead because of the banks closing (and I hit the mattress exhausted).

It's just coming up 9am Monday morning here in New Zealand so I expect the banks to start opening again throughout the world and the race to begin again (I am not sure when I offered to help people to buy bitcoins but I might regret it Tongue )

Sounds good, hmm, when would be the "cut-off" date for orders ?

I will try to give warning, I have to keep in mind that the people that have already paid want theirs ASAP but I also have to keep in mind that people are working hard to get the bitcoins and get included.

In short, there is no "cut-off" date at the moment but don't procrastinate.

UPDATE:

This has to be the most frustrating undertaking I have ever done in my life..

ONE extra confirmed payment in the past 24 hours.... ONE!!!

The issue is getting currency into bitcoin, fortunately ASICMiner has not even started shopping the devices yet so I am going to lie and say that is the holdup Tongue .  With any luck now the weekend is fully behind us I will get 400 payments today (now I am lying to myself).

I have put together a few notes for people planning to do future group-buys (or if I do one myself).

1. Don't count a 'sale' a 'sale' until you have the bitcoin.

2. It is a lot of work, make sure that there is enough margin to reward yourself.

3. Don't think your going to fool customs (In my calls to customs both here and overseas I get the impression that they know about these group buys and are talking to each other about them).

4. Some people are funny, they will insist on not paying until others have paid leading to others not paying because others have not paid (circular logic at its finest).

To these people, I've paid, you can go ahead now!

Not all the customs ppl know about it. I think the ones here are quite clueless.

I think they will know about it in NZ now, I am sure a few of them are idling their time away on the net browsing forums like this one.

And to those holding up the show, I have paid as well. So don't be shy, part with your coins.

Perhaps, but it is just something I am not willing to risk.  I would be mortified if I spent all of this time collecting up over $70,000 USD of your guys money only to have it seized at the border and impounded.

I know other group buys are planning to ignore it all together or do some wonky math with the declared value but for the little bit extra that people are paying per device with this group buy it is protecting us all.

Yep, go ahead, I am still working on getting orders transferred into actual bitcoins and your actual bitcoins will help everyone out.

We just went through 50.

I am not sure if everyone realises it so I will say it in plain english;-

IF EVERYONE PAID WE WILL BE ORDERING TODAY!!

I realise that most of my orders came through slashdot and many will never pay (or get devices) but if under 50% of the orders that I had would pay we would be done.
