For the first time, superconductivity in the Ba1-xKxBiO3 system has been investigated in the whole region of cubic phase from x = 0.37 up to x = 1. Samples were synthesized using the high pressure and high temperature technique. The superconducting transition temperature Tc of Ba1-xKxBiO3 samples determined from dc susceptibility measurements monotonously goes down with increasing x from the well known Ba0.63K0.37BiO3 composition with Tc = 30.4 K to Ba0.24K0.76BiO3 with very low diamagnetic signal at nearly 3 K. However, following this, we have found an increase of Tc up to 9 K for x = 1 according to KBiO3 nominal composition.
