That's right, it was listed on April 11, 2012.
One thing worth pointing out is it didn't go bankrupt. Indeed it paid a grand total of 19`268.964751 BTC in dividends to date. This sets a few records which the fiat world has yet to even vaguely get close to, as far as I know (please do correct me if you know better) :
- There's not that many fiat world start-ups that go to IPO within 8 months of being founded.
- Of which not that many achieve a market cap over 5% of the M3i within the first year.
- There's not that many fiat start-ups that are profitable in their first month of operation.
- Of which not that many pay a shade under 20k BTC in dividendsii in their first year.
A total of 572`999`419 shares changed hands during this past year, which is just a little over half the total issued. The total value of these exchanges is 278`878.68586427 BTC, putting the one year average share price just a shade under 0.0005 BTC per share.
On a personal note I'd like to add that I'm quite pleased with the howling success my first BTC venture turned out to be, that I hope it works well as a model for others trying to construct their own success as well as a measuring stick to know when they're there, and finally that I hope and intend for things to not end here.
