The Vickrey auction and why we're using it

Keycult is gearing up for our third release in 2019, the No. 1 Rev. 1. Our past sales have been a combination of First Come, First Served (FCFS) and raffle, with a roughly even split between the two. This time, we’re trying something new: while most will be sold in a raffle, up to ten boards will be sold in a Vickrey auction.   What is a Vickrey auction?

For the last month or so, we've been working with and trialing local Cerakote applicators, trying to find a combination of price and...
