Welcome to the world of 24/7 global economies where there's no time that's good for everyone.

I, for one, welcome my new Asia based mining overlords.

The IPO time is extremely unfair to any potential EU people. As can be clearly seen in the replies.

Hello! I have indeed been ASLEEP! We have NOT released the shares for sale as we promised we would give the forum a set time for the IPO to keep it as far as possible. The shares will be released AT IPO PRICE 0.001  BTC in 12 HOURS. That is 8 PM CENTRAL TIME!

Sorry for any confusion, but I had no way of knowing the IPO would be apprived while I was sleeping (I am not always awake 24/7 on bitcointalk.org Smiley

Smart decision. Convenient for American - the No.1 BTC user group. Its also convenient for Chinese - the No.2 BTC user group as it will be 9 AM BEIJING TIME. Sorry for European...

Suggestion: cancel all the bids and lock it. Release it one hour or 30 minutes right before start time.

could you please do it 6 hours earlier (at least 4) or a few hours later so that we in Europe don´t have to get up in the middle of the night?

And the other way around it would be "extremely unfair" to the other time zones, ever thought about that?

or even better - split IPO into 2 parts. One release in 12 hours, one released in 24 hours

You realize that a few hours later makes it the same problem in the US and a few hours earlier makes it the same problem in Asia, right? I realize that it sucks, but you're not solving the problem by shifting the time around.

There's no good time for 3 major time zone regions that isn't the middle of the night for someone.

Wow... Racist much? And pretty unfounded?

6 PM CET would be a lot better for everyone involved:

6 PM Convenient for North and South America
12 PM Still manageable for Europeans (12 PM UK, 1 AM Central Europe)
7 AM in Asia is also more the manageable

Found my posts helpful? Consider buying me a beer :-)!:

Give notice that it will go "live" at any time in the next 24 hours. Bids will need to be in and no one will know exactly when it goes off. Less chance of swoop-and-grab bid at the bell.

Cancelling all the bids is a bad idea.

BTCTC barely handles any kind of load as it is.

Cancelling the bids will result in massive overload at the stated time of the ipo going live (which should NOT now be changed under ANY circumstances).

The server will crash with 100% certainty.  There is no doubt about this whatsoever.

You'll have, at best, random chance on who gets bids filled AND the server will be down for everyone for an indeterminate amount of time.

This is not unforeseen, it is entirely predictable.  In case those involved can't predict it, I'm predicting it here.  Now you know.

Don't go this route.

I don't get the cancel all pre orders idea. The investors want to pay more than anticipated, let them. It will give Labcoin more money to do their thing.

Labcoin should have set the IPO price to a range, not a fixed value. For example 0.001 to 0.002. Price to be decided at start of IPO. Then all pre orders can be traded.

I am selling in stock OneStringMiner boards, based on the Bitfury chips. Have a look here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=495536.0

I bet we can find a time that suits everyone better than the one we have right now with Europe being at 3am

How about we freeze it now, honor the bids ( do you really need more money for company ? ).  Release shares and let the market do the rest

And the obvious reason is BTCTC cannot handle that kind a traffic if you release them at on bulk

I can't really stress enough how bad an idea it is to wipe the order book at this point.

Going to sleep? Place a higher bid - you'll probably get some shares.

All wiping the order book does is ensure that only people awake when the IPO sale is actually placed (or when the order book is re-opened) will get shares. Let people do their own math and place their bids accordingly - deliver the sale per the terms you've agreed to at the time you've agreed to it.

------------

And an update,

When 7,000,000 shares are sold by issuer at 0.001

  • All bids equal to or greater than 0.001011 will be filled
  • The first 553,680 shares bid at 0.00101 will be filled
  • Any lower bids will NOT be filled.

As of the last time I pulled it (so 13:24 forumtime)

You are in this discussion. From the parties concerned. This is a very good marketing

I'd be fine with wiping the order book, personally, but I agree - from experience, BTCT is not going to handle this kind of load. It will go down, people will get random orders filled, many will be upset.

With that said, this is where Burnside should comment.
