January 19, 2017

This deal as outlined below is no longer applicable. Please contact me here or on freenode for a quote in bitcoin. Otherwise, I have a listing on eBay.

I bought out the first batch of FGs. I didn’t buy them with the intention to resell, but the latest No Such lAbs statement inspired a change of plans. The price is 4.5 million satoshi per unit,i plus a shipping charge of 500 thousand satoshi per order. Instructions follow:

Encrypt a message to my key. The message must include the following:

  • Your mailing address
  • Quantity of units
  • Optional: A list of unit numbers.ii
  • I will respondiii with a message encrypted to your key;iv it will contain a summary of your order,v an amount of satoshi, and a bitcoin address. The order will ship when the amount of satoshivi has been sent to the bitcoin address.vii
    Being the first batch, the units came numbered from 1 to 100. The number is printed on a sticker that is stuck to the electrostatic bag.viii
    Numbers available:

    1. They will be shipped as I recieved them; that is, sealed in a bag and without any extra parts or wires. You may need to purchase additional components if you don’t already have them.
    2. Let’s say you ask for three units and specify one number: the other two will be chosen by me, and for the reduced price.
    3. This exchange of encrypted matierial can occur over whatever medium, but preferably IRC or as comments to this post.
    4. If you aren’t in the WoT already, get in there; that’s how I’ll get your key.
    5. It is for this reason that no signing is required. These three pieces of information as part of the same body of encrypted text is functionally equivalent to a cryptographic signature. If somebody had intercepted either of our encrypted messages, they still could not produce any substitute that would fool either party into performing the wrong action. The worst they can do is prevent recipt of a message, and a signature wouldn’t stop this from happening anyway.
    6. Exactly the amount given and not a satoshi more or less! Also, the payment must come as a single output of a single transaction.
    7. Or else be cancelled after a day.
    8. A unit from the front
    9. In millions of satoshi.
    10. Sticker was damaged in handling.
    11. Number is hand-written, presumably by Stanislav or by his pet.
    12. This is the same pool from which I will select units for customers who do not specify any numbers; there is just an additional specification fee of 400k satoshi.
