Nice game, but why do you use the same name as mine? Somewhat confusing, isn't it?

I sent in .09 like 2 days ago and haven't gotten anything....
That's the game Wink. First you pay for others to double, and then you can get double your money back.

Because this game lives off people who want to make quick money. Giving constant interest in the game the time to double the money will increase. In that scenario it will reach the max ttl for each bid at which point half the people will have nothing (they won't have anyway even with the current design, but the winners will be another group). At that point people should lose interest and the game will die as even more people lose.
Remember, this is a ponzi scheme and those *are* not sustainable.
The only reason to want a change to the current system is the hope to beat the flaws which is just not possible.
No, the people would in the continious game have lives, so they bet on "will it be doubled within 7 (or less) days?" and if it did not, the ticket is gone (but not the rest of the money, that still stays in the game). I think that's nice.

I hope this game doesn't change next round *g* Wouldn't make half as much sense if it becomes an endless game.
I am still thinking about it. Why wouldn't it make sense?

I think next time (at the end of this game, at least 7 days from now on) I will anounce when exactly the game begins (in UTC). Then everybody can play about the same time Cool...

I think everybody should have an equal time period, or we can say each bet has the same lifetime, for example 7 days or 3 days. So if I bet at Monday this week, the life of this bet will be ends at the next Monday, during the lifetime, the owner of the bet has opportunity to win his/her double. The lifetime parameter is one key parameter of the game, of course it can be adjusted to a relatively fixed time as the game goes on day by day. After the change, the game is endless and each bet has the same lifetime.
Good idea! I will think about that.

- Excluding transaction fee and 1% fee
maybe it's my own ignorance of the system asking....
The amount what you get is calculated by this formula:

a = doubleamount - 0.01 * doubleamount - transactionfee

so doubleamount minus 1% fee and transaction fee (usually 0.01, sometimes 0.02) of bitcoin.

11  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Double Trouble 2! Double your money within 7 days! on: June 06, 2011, 09:06:15 PM
So besides the 1%, I didn't see the fees enumerated anywhere.
What do you mean exactly?
12  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Double Trouble 2! Double your money within 7 days! on: June 06, 2011, 08:27:13 PM

are you manually paying out or have you worked it out to programmatically pay out?
I have a python script to see who gets what (see first post) and manualyl paying out.

Do you have to double the previous amount? or is it like the other one you have running where you can put in any amount?
This one you have to double indeed.

Yes you are =). Actually, it can be part of your strategy...
