1  Economy / Auctions / You're bidding on being my referrer on: February 26, 2015, 02:58:56 AM
Description: I don't click on referral links. I don't like the idea of me making money for someone I've never met. If you want me as a referral, buy me. Simple, right?

There are a ton of Cryptocurrency services out there that either give for free, give as winnings, or give as payment for completing some task. They draw you in with promises of referral bonuses, then you spam your list of contacts and not contacts and buy banners that flash and sparkle and slow down browsers and post your links in random chats and NOBODY LIKES IT.

also, what happens when your referral does nothing?YOU GET NOTHING.


All those faucet sites. All those gaming sites. All those banner ads that I COMPLETELY IGNORE. Or better yet, browse to the site being advertised and join without being someone's referral! Roll Eyes

Yes. I do that. Because I'm interested in seeing what those services have to offer. I actively participate in that service, seeing if its something worth my time or not, if its something worth telling other people about or not.

For those of you who do that whole down-line building thing, the above text in red should have jumped out at you.

Here's how I'm going to play it. I list a service I either have discovered on my own, or was suggested to me. I may list a few as a package deal. I decide if I'm willing to be auctioned off as someone's referral for that service(s). The bidding starts.

Starting bid:

- For any site whose my "referralship" earns you 10% of my income (What I am gifted, what I earn, what I win, etc.)>>> 100,000 Satoshi 
- For any site whose my "referralship" earns you 20% of my income (What I am gifted, what I earn, what I win, etc.)>>> 500,000 Satoshi
- For any site whose my "referralship" earns you 30% of my income (What I am gifted, what I earn, what I win, etc.)>>> 1,000,000 Satoshi
- For any site whose my "referralship" earns you 40% of my income (What I am gifted, what I earn, what I win, etc.)>>> 5,000,000 Satoshi
- For any site whose my "referralship" earns you 50% of my income (What I am gifted, what I earn, what I win, etc.)>>> 50,000,000 Satoshi
- For any site whose my "referralship" earns you 60% or more of my income (What I am gifted, what I earn, what I win, etc.)>>> Surprise me.

*If I have to make an investment of my own money in any way to become a part of whatever service you refer me to, you better sweeten the deal.
*If your activity with whatever service earns you more percentage from your referrals, I expect you to bid higher to reflect that. Your bids will still compete with others with respect to the ratio.

End date and time:
 
Every auction begins Wednesday at 10:00 PM EST and ends a week and a day later on Thursday at 10:00 PM EST. You have a whole 8 days to bid on my referralship.
The highest bidder at the end of auction will be announced on this thread and contacted via private message. We arrange payment details. Failure to pay / come to an agreement means the auction continues for 24 hours with the next highest bidder leading with their bid. 

How you bid:

All bidding is to be in the form of satoshis of BTC if the bid is under 1 BTC. If the bid is over 1 BTC, it is to be stated as such. For example: "1 BTC and 30,000 satoshis."
If you are bidding, you are posting your bid as a comment on this thread.

Payment methods accepted:

 I accept payment in whatever cryptocurrency the service offers as earnings to the user. If there are multiple, the currency with the highest value in USD is chosen.


Additional information: In the spirit of cryptocurrency with accessible blockchains, you can see if I'm a worthy referral based on my activity. I'm not going to guarantee you get your money's worth because of 1: How much the price of cryptocurrency fluctuates. 2: How well or unwell the service you referred me to performs. 3: This isn't a contract. You're referring me. You hope you made a good choice in spending money to refer me. That being said, It behooves me to be worth your money if I expect anyone else to bid on any of my future auction for my "referralship". I'm sure questions will arise as new and upcoming cryptocurrency services offer new products. I won't auction off my referralship if I flat out do not understand what the service does. If a service doesn't conform to any of the bidding categories above, upon auction it will be treated as one of the above, or after terms are agreed upon through discussion on this thread.
2  Economy / Lending / Trying to acquire 110$ in bitcoin, you get something in return on: December 19, 2014, 08:59:00 PM
The reason for this post is because I just so happened to win the top level prize of a contest over at Zeusminer.com. Here's the forum thread for your perusal: https://zeusminer.com/forums/topic/crazy-wednesday-rock-n-fly/

So now my dilemma. I won the ability to purchase the package of the three New Rock Miners (100-110 Gh/s each) and the mini drone for 120$ USD. I have until 4:15am tomorrow to send 120$ USD worth of Btc or Ltc to a specified set of wallets or I forfeit my prize. I'm short, and only have at my disposal credit cards which I REALLY don't want to use for a cash advance to then go to a semi-nearby bitcoin atm to make the deposit to my wallet.

Before I resign myself to the fact that I may have to forfeit the prize to the next eligible participant, I wanted to bring this to bitcointalk with a proposition.

In the spirit of the holidays, you help me acquire this prize, I Give you one or two of the miners in return. In other words, I'm passing my discount down to you. Ill ship anywhere in the US and pay for standard shipping. If you're overseas, chip-in! Don't expect it before Christmas if you celebrate it. Or we work something else out. As of right this second http://shop.rockminer.com/goods.php?id=44  is selling them for 170 mBtc, or around 54 dollars. To purchase 3 plus the mini drone would cost around 180$ USD, plus shipping. So even though the price of bitcoin is dropping, the prize is a better deal.

I'm looking to bargain with one or two people on this. 3 or more wouldn't be worth my not having any of the prize left for me. I'm interested in seeing how this turns out regardless, as the peer to peer nature of Bitcoin is pretty much what this post is about.

Here's the email proving I won. Im DJ5D over on that forum.



If nothing comes from this, happy holidays anyways!

Edited: for clarity.
3  Economy / Trading Discussion / Be careful folks. Just got hacked, lost some BTC today. on: December 06, 2013, 02:46:10 AM
I'm just putting out this friendly warning.

Be UBER careful with how you deal with your Bitcoin security, people.

I had a small number of Bitcoin, .025 to be exact, in a popular crypto exchange online.

Today, approximately 3 hours ago, it was withdrawn to a Bitcoin wallet "in Moscow" according to blockchain.info's block explorer.

Here's the transaction in question: https://blockchain.info/tx/6fe852a0c72f3195a84a0cbf46984a50d905923a4b9d1390af3d0bf14d3a7232

I just sent the site support team a question asking where my BTC is, but I found out shortly after on my own. It is no longer mine.

They haven't responded yet. They'll probably tell me I withdrew it, which according to the transaction history is true. But I didn't authorize the withdrawal, and that certainly is not my wallet address.

I'm not destroyed over this. Slightly bothered? Sure, as it was the only Bitcoin I had after fumbling around a bit in the exchange and losing half of it to newbie mistake trades. You live and learn I suppose. My case is but one more reminder to play it safe.

Time to virus scan the comp, change passwords, the works.
4  Other / Meta / Help on posting/ modifying posts on: November 21, 2013, 03:51:23 PM
As a newbie to these forums, I'm unaware as to how to perform some actions in regards to posting.

Editing a post for instance. How do I do it? Is this option enabled only on some forums?

I'm currently running an auction and I intend to alter the first post (mine) as bids come in, to inform any who visit the thread of the high bid. But I can't figure out how to do this. The board help page mentions editing or modifying a post, but I don't see this button anywhere.

I occasionally see "Reserved" posts just after the original post of a thread. I'm assuming it is so that the reserved post can be edited. But again, no dice.

Is this action forbidden in the Auctions forum? Is this action not afforded to me as a newbie? Can posts only be edited for a short time?

I'm confused. Someone please enlighten me.
5  Economy / Auctions / Highest bid refers me! on: November 20, 2013, 03:04:55 AM
Thread re-posted with more focus, and a countdown timer. Thanks to MrHelpful for suggestions!
Original thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=337910.msg3627737#msg3627737

My proposal:


You are bidding on my signing up as your referral under various btc paying services. Highest bid or best offer wins me as a referral.

It's up to you whether or not you think my referral-ship is worth your bid. There's no guarantee you will make back your investment, or that I'll be a worthwhile referral. But I have a ton of time, access to a computer, not great for mining, and don't have much for investing in BTC, so you can see just how active I am via faucets and other services:

                                                                                                                               
The Rules:

  • Bids will be accepted until this upcoming Sunday at Noon EST. Then I get in touch with the top bidder for each service to get their referral link.
  • If they don't respond within 24 hours, I contact the 2nd highest bidder.
  • I will list the sites I'm being offered a "bid" on and the amount of the high bid on the below post via quotes from this thread.
  • Once I prove to you I've signed up using your referral link, or other means we agree upon, you send me your BTC.
  • If I sign up using your referral link and then you don't donate the BTC we agreed upon, don't expect me to take part in using the service.
  • If I'm already a member of a service you wish to refer me too, I'll decide whether or not to sign up with a new wallet/email, or simply to reject the bid.
  • I am free to reject any final bid. If I don't like the final bid, or the service, or the terms of service of the service, or I have to make an initial investment beyond my budget, I simply won't join and you keep your BTC. I'll investigate services as they are presented to me.
  • You can bid via posting in this thread. Your bid should include a link to the service, and your bid amount. Don't send me redirects please.
  • You are bidding with BTC and extra if you wish.

Any questions? PM me or post them here. I've never done this before, we will all learn together.

6  Economy / Auctions / I'll be your referral on: November 18, 2013, 04:57:13 PM
I will be your referral

I've had no money to devote to bitcoin, which is such a shame considering it's tremendous growth in price, but alas time has passed.

I don't have a high end computer with the necessary specs to mine bitcoin and see any real profit from it, so I've been mining litecoin instead and am still seeing almost no profit.

But what I do have is time. So much so that I've been visiting faucets and gambling sites and ad surfers and so on, all to get fractions of BTC. Thanks to this meteoric rise in price, my .04 btc is suddenly worth more than 20 USD. and this excites me...

So here's my proposal: You "donate" some btc to me, and I'll sign up as your referral under various btc paying services. If someone else wants me as their referral for a service you want me to be your referral for, they better offer a better donation. Highest offer wins, I sign up as their referral.

It's up to you whether or not you think my referral-ship is worth your donation. There's no guarantee you will make back your investment, or that I'll do anything really, but if this works for me and people see this work for me, there's a good chance I'll be referring them. And if they help keep me afloat, I'll keep helping you keep afloat. And so on.
                                                                                                                               
Rules:

- Bids will be accepted upon my referral-ship until this upcoming Friday at Noon EST. Then I will get in touch with the top three bidders on each service and ask them for any last chance bids.

- I will list the sites I'm being offered a "bid" on and the amount of the high bid. I won't list names or the referral links themselves.

- You donate your btc to me once I prove to you I've signed up using your referral link, or other means.

- If I sign up using your referral link and then you don't donate the btc we agreed upon, don't expect me to take part in using the service.

- If I'm already a member of a service you wish to refer me too, I'll decide whether or not to sign up with a new wallet/email, or simply to reject the bid.

- I am free to reject any final bid. Remember, YOU are coming to ME with bids. If I don't like the final bid, or the service, or the terms of service of the service, or I have to make an initial investment beyond my budget, I simply won't join and you keep your btc.

- You can bid via posting in this thread or PMing me. Your bid should include a link to the service, your username on the forum. Don't send me redirects please.

-If your bid includes something besides your btc donation, good for you for upping the ante'!

- I'm fully aware I can find a bunch of referral links across the forum, or in people's sigs. Well congrats, now you're aware of a thread to bid on me becoming your referral instead of someone else's.

- Any questions? PM me or post them here. I've never done this before, we will all learn together.


!Happy Bidding!

7  Other / Beginners & Help / I'd like to announce I now have 20$ worth of bitcoin on: November 17, 2013, 07:31:14 PM
I didn't pay a single cent, I have a crappy computer so mining is out of the question, I don't pay the electric bill where I am.

I have been visiting faucet sites for months. Due to having WAY TOO MUCH free time, the paltry fraction of bitcoin I have amassed, plus the incredible jump in price of bitcoin, has garnered me 20 USD.

This is a happy day
