Ethereum's pre-sale of Ether has begun

  • July 22, 2014 · 7:00 PM

The long awaited moment has come!  Ethereum has opened their pre-sale of Ether on their website: https://www.ethereum.org/

The sale and details of the sale were announced on the Ethereum blog by Vitalik Buterin: https://blog.ethereum.org/2014/07/22/launching-the-ether-sale/

If you want to track how much money they have received in conjuction with the pre-sale, you can check the following Blockchain.info webpage:   https://blockchain.info/address/36PrZ1KHYMpqSyAQXSG8VwbUiq2EogxLo2?offset=100&filter=0

I created this meetup to extend from today until Aug. 5th which represents when the exchange rate of Ether for BTC goes down.  The sale officially ends on Sept. 2nd, but meetup.com won't let me post a meetup for more than 2 weeks.  Please note that the exchange rate of 2000 Eth for 1 bitcoin will only be going on for the next 14 days.  After that, the rate of exchange will progressively go down to 1337 Eth per BTC.

Just for fun, RSVP to this meetup if you participate in the sale so we can congratulate you!

Please do not take this meetup post as the truth, go check the websites above for the official Ethereum announcements!

I apologize that we have not met in over a month.  I promise to schedule another meetup in early August.  With your support, I propose that we begin meeting twice a month from now on until the Ethereum Genesis Block.

    UPDATE: After the first two weeks of the Ether sale, Ethereum has collected almost 22,000 BTC. Which translates to almost 44 million Ether which will be produced and distributed in the Ethereum Genesis Block (projected to occur at the end of 2014, or early 2015). The sale continues for 4 more weeks, but each day the exchange rate will become less favorable. For example, the current exchange rate is 1970 Ether per BTC, and tomorrow it will be 1940 Ether per BTC. I hope everyone who wanted to was able to lock in their piece of the Ether pie!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
