I officialy confirm the above statement. BitcoinNotify was put on sale in a blind auction model several hours ago.
Just to let you now, there are already three buy offers better than initial 99 BTC.
This means BitcoinNotify will NOT be open sourced but will be sold to the highest bidder.
The blind auction continues until this Sunday, 13 of November 2011. Feel free to join by submitting an amount you are willing to pay to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your interest in BitcoinNotify. I'm positively surprised by the quality of offers and volume of interest the statement generated so far.
