2  Economy / Marketplace / Launching the first BTC.CFD Investor Fund on: October 31, 2012, 11:21:07 AM
Dear fellow bitcoin lovers and investors

I am writing this post to see if we could setup and operate an investor group that would communally
invest into CFDs (Contract For Difference) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contract_for_difference

Introduction
The BTC.CFDs investor club is a bitcoin to fiat currency investment funds, open to investors to successfully
invest and trade in CFDs. One of my very best friends who is based in London has been actively trading
CFDs for the last 5 years within a high profile CFD brokerage investment company. Being involved in this
company gives him full access to the various platforms and its “insiders” information to successfully day
trade CFDs. CFDs being derivative investments with high potential return they require cash reserves to
succeed and make high profits with minimum capital exposure. Typically only a very small portion of the
funds available (around 20%) are invested in short term contracts such as indices, currencies and/or
commodities. The remaining balance of the funds are needed to sustain the potential volatility and
margin calls.

Portfolio
Being a day trader he specialized in EUR/USD, DAX30, FTS500. These will be the only contracts traded
during the market open hours. All positions will be liquidated at the very last during the markets extended
hours.

Targeted Return on Investment
4-8% per month
1-2% per week

A yearly cap of 100% is introduced. Should the funds grow more than 100% per annum the remaining
percentage (over 100%) will then be kept as managing fees by the day trader.

How to join the club
We target a total investment of 10'000 BTC at current valuation ca. 100'000 USD. The minimum needed
capital investment to launch the investor club is of 5'000 BTC. This amount is the minimum required to be
able to open a real money trading account at this brokerage house. This is also the minimum amount
needed to place CFD contracts in the targeted markets and have the required margin as security.
Previous to the launch in January 2013 we will be collecting the investment intend (btc.cfd club
membership) within the bitcoin community. The minimum investment per member is 100BTC or a multiple
of 100 with no maximum. A maximum of 999 members will be accepted into the club (100'000 BTC
minimum required investment divided by 100BTC less “me” equal 999 members.
The minimum investment period is 90 days. The dividends will be paid every 30 days on the last Sunday
of each month. The membership can be canceled at earliest after three months (end of march 2013).
Canceling the membership is equivalent to returning the membership capital investment.
Please note that the bitcoins will be converted to USD and back to Bitcoins using mt.gox last price (or any
other exchange that would like to work as the official btc.cfd investor club exchanger).

How to withdraw
You can request a withdraw anytime after the minimum investment period of 3 months. The payments are
processed and paid every Sundays after the profits as been calculated and paid out. Requests are made
by PM to my address with the information needed to withdraw your BTCs and close your membership.

Investor Profile
You are a very high-risk investor. You can tolerate substantial fluctuations in the value of your investment
in the short-term in anticipation of the highest possible return at maturity. You are prepared to
aggressively take on higher risk in pursuit of your investment goals. You are comfortable with a high
volatility investment which can provide substantial 'higher returns than any other standard investment.

Understanding the risks
If you buy a financial asset such as a share, you gain exposure to its upward and downward movements.
When you trade CFDs, you provide a deposit to gain full exposure to the underlying asset’s movements.
This means it is possible to lose more than your initial deposit when you trade CFDs.
Based on my friends knowledge we will risk a maximum of 30-40% of the deposited member funds. This
will also be your maximum risk. Based on a 100BTC investment your maximum loss would be 40BTC.

Summary

• BTC.CFD Investor club starts 1st of January 2013
• Investments may be made in multiples of 100BTC
• Withdrawals may be made in multiples of 100BTC
• Returns will be paid monthly to reduce overhead costs - no automatic reinvestment
• Target return 2% per week caped at 100% per annum
• Minimum weekly return 0%
• Minimum investing period 3 months
• Signing period for the membership is from today's date till 15th of December 2012

Sign up Phase
For now just drop your interest and investment amount during the sign up period in this thread. Please take this seriously and commit to
it. Should we secure commitments for the minimum required amount of 5000 BTC by December 15th you
will be sent a unique depositing address and will be ask to supply a unique return address. You will then
have 5 days to make your deposit or your membership application will be canceled thus giving the chance
for another applicant on the waiting list to join the club.

The bitcoins will then be converted into EUR or USD and used to make the wire to the chosen broker. The
btc.cfd investor club will then be officially up and running.

Feel free to ask as many questions as you like. I will be happy to answer them.

All feedback, critics and improvements ideas are welcome. We should all share the same goal to make this club the most successful investor club in the world!

Thanks for your interest.
3  Economy / Gambling / Vote for Obama if you like online gambling on: August 30, 2012, 08:54:38 AM
http://www.onlinecasinoadvice.com/news/online-gambling-prohibition-now-official-republican-party-principle/

The Republican National Committee that just officially nominated Mitt Romney as the Republican presidential candidate also released an official party platform and agenda that asks for a total ban on online gambling in the US.

The statement reads as follows:

"Millions of Americans suffer from problem or pathological gambling that can destroy families. We support the prohibition of gambling over the internet and call for reversal of the Justice Department's decision distorting the formerly accepted meaning of the Wire Act that could open the door to internet betting."
4  Economy / Gambling / SEPTEMBER BTC sports betting leagues (Current League Pot 6 BTC) on: August 26, 2012, 08:14:42 PM
With the new NFL season starting and the football/soccer season already running I want to setup a NON FOR PROFIT BTC sportsbook betting league(s).

You can bet on any sport event during the month. No restrictions on the amount of bets nor bet types. Each one increasing his balance over the initial credits will be a winner.

How:
We would use already available betting systems available for all platforms iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows, MAC, Linux (bettracker.com) for free. We define 2 leagues the 1 BTC league and the 10BTC league and run the leagues for one month with payout on the first of the following month based on the achievement in the league.

The bettracker app is for free if we don't bet on more than 3 concurrent sports events so the idea would be to select 3 NFL matches and 3 Football/Soccer matches per week. We would take the 3 most popular events per week and place bets on it. Bettracker enable full betting transparency from each participants with live ranking. Each participants can check the bets and standing of each other.

Finance:
To enter a monthly league we would deposit each 1.1 BTC or 11BTC which would give a starting purse of 100 credits in the 1BTC leage respective 1000 credits in the 10BTC league (1BTC = 100 credits + 0.1 BTC for potential costs of operation, miners transactions fee, donations, jackpots,...).

From the 1 or 10 BTC deposits we would pay the winners at the end of each month based on their results 100 credits = 1 BTC. If the house has not enough bankroll we would calculate the payouts based on the available bankroll per league and the total credits to be paid.

The extra 0.1 BTC respective 1 BTC will be used for the mentioned various managing tasks and will be discussed directly in the forum. If successful we would surely want to develop an automated deposit and payout system this will be paid out of the managing fees (0.1 / 1.00 BTC).

It's possible to re-buy multiple time during the month.

Signup process:

1. Go here: https://bettracker.com/home/ and signup for free don't chose any plans just skip that step
2. PM me the email you used to signup at bettracker and the league you want to join (1BCT,10BTC, both) or post it in the forum you can use anonymous emails i.e http://mailnesia.com/
3. In return I will send you a unique depositing address from the house wallet (@blockchain.info). Send 1.1 BTC, 11 BTC to that address or 12.1 BTC if you want to participate in both leagues.
4. Once your deposit clears I will add you your chosen the league. You will then have a purse of 100 respective 1000 credits to bet on any sports events proposed by bettracker (NFL, Soccer, Golf, Tennis, Formula 1...) within the month.

The two starting leagues are:

1 BTC SEPT League
10 BTC SEPT League

Please give your feedback and/or improvement ideas!

I believe it could be a lot of fun!! Thanks to bitcoin all transactions (deposits/payouts) will be transparent the house wallet balance will be know from all and published regularly.

Hope you will find this as attractive as I do! Try it out it's already operational.

Thank you for your interest, brian

Full disclosure: I'm in no way affiliated with bettracker and I won't take any profits from this operation. I will also not run away with the wallet (escrows services could be setup). I do this simply for fun. Should it become unmanageable for me I will seek help from other forum members.

Hi

I was just thinking about what happened the last months with bitconica and now bitdaytrade and how it hurts all of us bitcoin supporters.

What is needed is a a kind of independent "review board" or "auditing service" or .... supplied for free to bitcoin business owners or startups or who ever feel the need of it.

The service should be free so that the barrier to entry to bitcoin remains low. The bitcoin community already have talented white hat hackers that reviewed websites and advised of potential securities issues. I think those talented and trusted members should get rewarded for their community work.

My idea is to make use of the forum donation tool to collect funds to support all kind of community tasks by enforcing a donation of 1BTC from members and maybe 10BTC for businesses after a member reach i.e 50 postings. I believe that when reaching this amount of posts it's given that members are interested in following and developing bitcoins further.

I open this for discussion here and hope that some new ideas will come out of it. This is really just an idea feel free to give your feedback or improvement.

Thanks for reading, brian

7  Economy / Gambling / for those who knows calvin Ayre on: April 02, 2012, 03:33:44 PM
check bullet number 14. http://calvinayre.com/2011/12/27/business/calvin-ayre-2012-gambling-industry-predictions/

Extract:
14. ANONYMOUS PAYMENT SYSTEMS: This will be the year a modified version of Bitcoin hits the net. Someone is going to figure out how to make this work and when they do, all the anti-gambling, over-regulating authoritarian governments will be exposed as emperors without clothes. It might not be obvious that this is even happening at first, since these systems are by definition stealthy affairs.

9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / why no exchanger implements 3D secure-Verified by Visa / MC SecureCode on: February 09, 2012, 03:26:51 PM
Hi

I can't understand why none of the big exchanger implemented Visa 3D Secure and MasterCard SecureCode to process credit cards without any chargeback risks.

Accepting credit cards charges for bitcoins is one of the most request/needed/looked for service in the bitcoin economy!

Thanks for any comments

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / web wallet with same incoming and outgoing bitcoin address on: January 08, 2012, 07:21:56 PM
Hi

For our members and players we are looking to recommend some instant Bitcoin web wallet that support deposits and withdrawals from the same address (we process players withdrawals back to their depositing address).

We have add multiple issues with players using https://www.instawallet.org or https://walletbit.com/ to  make deposits and cashouts are then lost if they don't realize that their depositing address is generic and not unique to their web wallet.

We have then to keep our players happy re-credited their withdrawals to a new address of their choice so losing for ever our first payment.

Please advise if you know online wallets that would support this functionality.

Thank you
12  Economy / Marketplace / looking to partner with exchangers for mutual benefit on: December 14, 2011, 05:04:45 PM
Dear exchangers operators/owners

We soft launched our Bitcoin gambling operation two weeks ago and received very positive feedback from players. Our daily signups are increasing each days and look very promising for the future.

The current major drawback and problem is for our customers to get hands on Bitcoins in a timely manner. Our support is literally bombed with request referring on where to get Bitcoins the link we have on our website pointing to https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Buying_bitcoins is unfortunately not enough to help them out.

I was therefore thinking to promote the use of a handful of preferred exchangers. We would refer to them in the signup email and on a dedicated page on our website.

I'm thinking to have a shortlist either per country or continent from the fastest and most secure exchangers. Does a list like this already exist?

If anyone is interested in getting new clients and like to build a long term relationship with our online casino please PM me or reply to this thread.

Thank you for your ideas and interest
