I won this MSVisual Studio 2008 at a developer contest earlier this year, and don't need it. It's never been installed.

It is an MS Company Store Purchase, and has a large 'not for resale' sticker on it. These stickers are a request from MS, not legally enforceable.


Price: 10,000 BTC + shipping at $.06/BTC.

No thanks. I'll stick to emacs, the world's most powerful text editor, that even have more power than MS Visual Studio 2008.  Wink

I'm open to all offers.

But, let me do some math.

Selling 10,000 BTC on BitcoinMarket right now would drive the price down to .04 / BTC. Total amount generated would be $503.1 before any paypal transaction fees, and of course, you'd need to get paid by 21 people if I understand bitcoinmarket correctly.

Amazon lists the software at $499 in the typically competitive "used / new" market.  I do want to offer some discount to BTC users, so I'll reprice to BTC 8500 / Best Offer.

To get to .04, I totaled up all the bids on bitcoinmarket starting with the highest one: so what I said isn't speculation, it's just a fact of the current market.

Your first block would sell for something like 0.06 or so, but there just isn't that much liquidity in the market, so by the time you were selling your 5000th bitcoin, you'd be pretty far down into the bid sheet.

It doesn't say MSDN on it, just Professional.

It would be silly to sell 10k all at once in one market. MTGOX can absorb 6k above .05 right now.

edit: I'm not criticizing your pricing at all though. People should keep in mind that a first offer ought not be the lowest offer unless you are in a hurry.

Precisely! Bring on the offers. I'm happy to provide MS's excellent Compiler to the Bitcoin community.
