As of today, RIPE has less than 1 million IPv4 addresses available.
So the question is, how long until RIPE does not have any IPv4 addresses anymore? Or more specifically, which is the exact date on which RIPE will have run out of IPv4 addresses?
We are very curious and wonder who can best predict the exact date. And because it's a lot of fun to guess the right time, we will give out an IPv6 only VM for free to the person that guesses the exact date.
@TuxOne 2019-10-23 08:27 @objetsfabuleux 2019-10-26 (the same day as the IPv4 exhaustion party, so it must be correct) @natedalliard 2019-11-08 @JoelAMay 2019-11-11. Hopefully at 11:11:11 (that's probably the most sane guess we have seen so far) @RickBakkr 2019-11-12 @inoobkivervip 2019-11-12 @ 1PM BST (submitted three minutes after @RickBakkr)

- @pb_double 2019-11-27 0610 UTC (very precise!)

Want to guess?
- You cannot use the same date somebody else already guessed
- You can only guess once
- You can only guess until 2019-10-13-2359 UTC
And the winners is ...?
Unfortunately, nobody guessed the exact date. However, the nearest guess came from @pb_double, with less than 2 days of difference. He was followed by @VertXVaaR and @agowa338 with 3 days of difference.
