What is being auctioned? Why?
Its recently been brought to my attention that the 'pool information' section within my setup guides may have been unfair as only a small number of pools were arbitrarily chosen and displayed. In order to fix this, I will be holding monthly public auction between the major pools in order to decide which pools are displayed and in what order.


Ad Format

  • There are 3 pool slots for sale.
  • Final bidding order matters - the top bid will receive the first slot, the middle bid the second slot and the lowest bid the third slot.
  • The ads are to last from the 1st February to the 28th February, during which impressions are projected to be 500,000 per slot.
  • This traffic is as targeted as can be - to those who have just bought miners and are looking to set them up and direct them towards a pool.
  • Pool slots feature a direct registration link and quick startup information.


Auction Format

  • Auction will run for approximately 15 days, to end at midnight London time / 3PM PDT / 6PM EDT on Saturday 31st January.
  • Post your bid in this thread stated in BTC. If two people bid at the same price, the person who bid first will have his slot filled first.
  • Bidding starts at BTC 1.0. All bids must be evenly divisible by BTC 0.2.
  • Only pre-approved pools on the below list are accepted, if your pool is not on the list please contact me.
  • You must pay for your slots within 48 hours of receiving the payment address. Otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else. I will send you the payment information via forum PM from this account ("dogie", user ID 87869). You might receive false payment information from scammers pretending to be me. They might even have somewhat similar usernames. Be careful.

I reserve the right to reject bids, even days after the bid is made. You must pay for your slots within 24 hours of receiving the payment address otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else. I will send you the payment information via forum PM from this account ("dogie", user ID 87869). You might receive false payment information from scammers pretending to be me. They might even have somewhat similar usernames. Be careful.


Taxes
There is only tax due to UK bidders, and there is no additional cost to anyone (apart from me). Just clarifying to making sure its a level playing field while also collecting any legally required taxes.

US and rest of world   - bid as normal, no VAT.
Non VAT registered UK          - bid as normal, I will pay 20% VAT and take the hit.
Non VAT registered EU          - bid as normal, I will pay your VAT and take the hit.
VAT registered UK businesses - will be invoiced an additional 20% VAT on bid prices.
VAT registered EU businesses - bid as normal, please let me know your VAT registration number.

This is the auction for the pools to be listed in Dogie's guides. The other auctions are for advertisements in his guides.

Since people will often setup their miners based on his guides there is real value in bidding on a particular pool having them being listed as a lot of hashpower (and pool fees) are likely going to be sent to such pools as a result

Exactly. The point of this auction isn't to generate revenue, but to give pool operators the opportunity to promote their pools, so it can't be claimed that I am favouring some pools and blocking some out.
