Wednesday April 16,2014 : BITCOIN ONLY SATOSHI POKER UP FOR AUCTION
 
At starting bids of 30 BTC in two day sale
 
Dutch entrepreneur and Satoshi Poker founder Bart van Oort is offering Satoshi Poker.org for sale via a 48-hour auction after just one year of operation.
 
van Oort is touting the sale of the Bitcoin-only poker domain on bitcointalk.org saying he no longer has the time or personal stability to move the business forward to its full potential.
 
Included in the sale is a fully paid licence and $40 000 Enterra Poker desktop client package along with a custom built backend that services Bitcoin payments and affiliate records.
 
Satoshi Poker reportedly generated total rake of 98.4 BTC (approx. $50 400) in 2013 and to date has generated 7.6 BTC (approx. $3 900) in 2014.  19 BTC (approx. $9 700) is owed to players and 3.9 BTC (approx. $2 000) is tied up in pending withdrawals.  The operation claims to have 4648 registered players.
 
van Oordt is starting bids at 30 BTC (approx. $15 300), saying a portion of the final selling price will be used to cover player balances.
 
Latest posts from van Oordt indicate interest but no binding bids.
