I felt I had sufficiently made clear in the thread that the ability to provide a bulk discount applied specifically to the 25 BTC coins, no discount was possible on 1BTC coins.
I'm sorry - must have been a misunderstanding. I somehow read the "discount extends to the 25BTC coins" as to not excluding the 1 BTC coins but re-reading it you're right of course.
What I had in mind was that some enterprising person who perhaps already had a vendor table would pick up 50 or 100 or 200 of the 25 BTC coins at a discount, and make a nice little profit selling them.
Well, that's something which would better be arranged directly with the organizer of the event instead of over a forum thread. But I'm sure Mitchell already had enough on his plate
If anyone in the US is going, I can reliably overnight something for Tuesday delivery to anyone in the US who might be going to the conference. But for orders like 50-100 1BTC coins... may as well just order them like normal. I can mail up to 2kg for USD $13.25 anywhere in the world.
If somebody could do that it would be great of course, but given the tight schedule I think our chances are slim.
No worries though - shipping is not that expensive - I think we're probably all best off ordering separately (or teaming up with some of your local Bitcoin group).
