We are excited to preview to you our new products coming this summer, the 2018 V-Series One Bitcoin and 2018 V-Series One Tenth Bitcoin, both in Titanium!

We are keeping the popular Titanium material, and these are “3-star” coins. They are all funded by newly mined BTC, and fully funded to the face value of the coin.  To differentiate these from the pre-fork Bitcoins (prior to August 2017), these new coins now have the backside tamper-evident hologram sticker in Orange color. Beneath the hologram sticker is the MINI-format private key, and also the QR code version of it. Each coin shows a unique serial number and address prefix, both visible from the window on the orange hologram sticker.

We will be auctioning off the first 25 serial number of each coin, from #1 to #25. (If interested, you can also bid on serial numbers #26 through #100.)

The 2018 V-Series One Bitcoin (similar to the 2016 One Bitcoin):
- 43 mm size, made of Titanium
- 3.25 mm thickness, weighing about 20 grams
- Funding: 1.0 BTC
- Serial number starts with “V
- Starting bid: 1.20 BTC
- Bidding increment: 0.01 BTC
- Item name: Vnn (replace “nn” with the serial number 01 to 25)

The 2018 V-Series One Tenth Bitcoin (similar in size, to the 2016 Half Bitcoin):
- 39 mm size, made of Titanium
- 3.25 mm thickness, weighing about 16 grams
- Funding: 0.1 BTC
- Serial number starts with “W
- Starting bid: 0.125 BTC
- Bidding increment: 0.001 BTC
- Item name: Wnn (replace “nn” with the serial number 01 to 25)

We will officially launch these two new coins on the BTCC Mint Store in the coming weeks. We expect these two coins to sell for an introductory price of around 1.08 BTC and 0.11 BTC, respectively. However, when you purchase on the BTCC Mint Store, you will NOT be able to specify or choose the serial numbers.

Updated: Please note that the expected selling price is just our expectation today. We have not yet finalized the decision, and we will retain to right to launch and sell the two coins at different (or the same) prices, from what's listed above. Thank you for understanding.

Right now, you have your chance at getting the exact serial number you want, by bidding on this auction. When you bid, please specify “Vnn” for the One Bitcoin, and specify “Wnn” for the One Tenth Bitcoin, where “nn” is the serial number you want.

   Coin      Item Name      Starting Bid         Bid Increment      
   One Bitcoin      Vnn      1.20 BTC      0.01 BTC   
   One Tenth Bitcoin      Wnn      0.125 BTC      0.001 BTC   

Shipments will be made worldwide, including to the US market.
Shipping will all be FREE! (Free shipping, regardless of how many items you win.)

Auction terms

- The auction starts today on June 5, and ends at 4:00 PM / 16:00 hours (UTC) on Monday, June 11.

- No sniping! Every bid (on any item) within 15 minutes of the end of the auction, will extend the full auction (of all items) by another 15 minutes.

- We reserve the right to suspend the auction or extend the auction end time, in the event of forum down time, or any other activities deemed fraudulent in nature.

- The starting bid for each item is listed above, in the item description table.

- The bid increment for each item is also listed above, in the item description table.

- For your bid, please specify:
   - The item you want. (Please specify “V” for the One Bitcoin and “W” for the One Tenth Bitcoin, along with the serial number.)
   - Your bid amount in BTC (BTC). (Please make sure your bid increment is valid.)

- Shipping fees will be FREE, to anywhere in the world.

- Each coin will come in an acrylic case, and will be shipped to you in the *RED* box by default.  If you prefer, you can also specifically request the BLACK box.

- Shipping address: Before you make payment, please send us your desired shipping address via PM to this “BTCC_Official” account. This is to prevent fraud, so shipping addresses cannot be changed after you have made payment.

- Payment is in bitcoin (BTC) only. Payment details will be posted here in the OP after the auction ends.

- Winners will have 3 days to make payment. Exact payment due dates will be announced at the end of the auction.

- We will post custom payment addresses in this “OP” posting, for each winner.  For security reasons, and to prevent phishing attempts and fraud, we will NOT message or PM any user to request payments to specific addresses.

- We will start shipping soon after payment is received.  Exact details will be announced later. (For USA-bound items, shipment dates and details will be discussed privately with the auction.)
 
Good luck bidding!  Hope you win the serial number you want!

Congratulations to all of the Auction Winners!

Important Next Steps for all Winners:

- Within 48 hours, you need to send PM to us, to give us your:
   - Full Name
   - Shipping address
   - Email address
   - Mobile Phone
- If you prefer to pick up at BTCC Office (pick up deadline: July 15, 2018), please also provide:
   - Passport or ID number
   - Date of Birth
- After you PM us with the above, we will post your custom BTC payment address in the OP.  (We will NEVER ever PM you with a bitcoin address, requesting you to send BTC to it.  Those are usually scam messages from someone else; please be careful.)
- Please make full payment to your specific BTC address by 12:00 PM UTC, on Monday, June 18.
- After you make payment, we will NOT allow you to change the shipping address ever again. This is for your own protection.
- Shipments will start as soon as next week, but the exact timing is still TBD.  Stay posted.



Attention to all Bidders, even if you are NOT the Final Auction Winner:

Beware of scam PM messages, telling you that you're now the second-place winner, asking you to make payment to a BTC address.

Those are NOT valid PM messages from us. Please do NOT send any BTC to any address that is given to you by PM.  All correct BTC addresses will be posted in the OP.  Only trust the OP!


Thanks!
BTCC_Official


Here are all of the final winners, with your sub-totals for payment due.

We will post your BTC payment address in the OP after you send us PM with your shipping information. (Please see above post for details.)

This is the preliminary list. Please check your entry and alert us if there are any mistakes.

We are going through all of the incoming PM messages now, to check usernames, and then I'll update this list again soon, to show the BTC payment address for each individual.

Yes, the orange holograms look amazing in person, especially placed on the Titanium coins!
They turned out much better than even we had predicted!

The photos don’t do it justice; you have to see it in person to believe me.

thanks,

Loving the holograms.
When will the remaining coins be going on general sale?
W010 @ 0.125

We are still tweaking the online store to get it properly listed.
We plan to launch officially and start the general sale in mid or late June.

The idea is that we will get this first auction batch of pre-sale to all of you first, our most loyal customers.

You’ll get your hands on them before anyone else!  Wink

Love that we get the first shot as “your most loyal customers”, but why do your “most loyal customers” have to start at higher premium than your average everyday customer would buy them for??  0.12BTC premium on the V serial numbers just to pick a number and 0.015BTC on the W serial numbers just to do the same.  I understand the auction and allowing others to bid the price up based on number preference.  I just don’t agree with the starting point being higher for “your most loyal customers.” One would think the exact opposite to be true.  Just my 2 Sats.

For our first run, we plan to produce (and mine) up to 300 200 of the One Bitcoin, and up to 900 of the One Tenth Bitcoin.

Until we mine and sell them, those will not be the final numbers.

And depending on demand and sales volume, we could potentially produce more later this year.

(Edit: For the 2018 One Bitcoin, we plan to produce up to 200 in the first production run, and not 300.)

That is great to hear about the 1/10 BTC coins.

Also love the mint BTC loading unique to BTCC coins!! Cheesy

Hi anonymousminer,

Sorry to hear that you don't like the starting bid price. Let me explain a little bit:

We run a for-profit company, and we need to make sure that BTCC Mint is a profitable business, in order for this to continue. To be honest, every year, we are at risk of it being the last year for BTCC Mint products. 2018 will be our third consecutive year making coins, and we do not take this for granted; and you shouldn't either.

We have deliberated on how much to set the starting bid at, so the decision was not taken lightly. It was intentionally set at this price, for good or bad.

Also, remember that for this auction, we have chosen to offer *FREE* shipping to everyone, to anywhere in the world, regardless of how many items you win. There is a real cost attached to offering shipping for free.

We also deliberately chose to fully disclose to you our intended initial Introductory Price of the two coins for the general sale, so that you're aware of how much you're bidding for, and what premium you're paying.  You're paying this premium for early access and selection of the serial number.  (We will reserve the right to adjust the actual Introductory Price for launch, as well as reserving the right to adjust prices down the road.) We feel that by telling you the prices now, it is more transparent and more responsible, rather than to surprise you at launch day.

However, for the auction of these two new coins, the starting bid prices will remain, as according to our auction rules in the OP.

Thank you for your feedback and for bringing up this concern, so that we can have the opportunity to share our thoughts on this matter. Even if you disagree, we hope that you can appreciate our intention to be transparent and responsible to this community.

Thank you again, and we do hope that you can bid for a coin that you like! Smiley

thanks,
Bobby
