Yeah, scammers tend to earn people's trust before screwing them over. Nobody can be trusted. It's nothing personal, really. It's just the way of the world.

And don't forget to promote the Greed pit at the same time.

Both seem complementary Smiley
Yeah, don't worry, I'm gonna continue to work to make the pit more successful, but today Ethstick will be the main focus.

Gonna start the promotion in an hour or so, I got a bit distracted. Last chance to get in early!

The title says it all.

I've got tired of all those complicated and/or scam pyramids. I've created very simple pyramid for you to end all the scams.

It's easy. Anyone can verify it's code to see that it is fair. And it has 0% fees.
It will probably get hyped for a couple of days and then stop, like all the pyramids, so use it while you can.

Send up to 50 ETH to this address: 0x496a84aeaa78f6fc8ed458904d7f2d52b222e823
Get back 125% of your investment.

List of deposits and code:
http://etherscan.io/address/0x496a84aeaa78f6fc8ed458904d7f2d52b222e823

That's it.

Have fun!

But, but, the code isn't even there. Why make a new account every time, anyway?
104  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ETH] EthVentures3 on: April 07, 2016, 02:23:56 PM

So why can't I be trusted? I told you the emergency function is there in case some future bug gets detected which has very low chance, but better to have insurance than to have thousands of ether stucked.

You are so naive ... or think people are dumb ...

Your emergency function should refund each investor ... not send you all the money...

You have such lame and false arguments ... only dumb people will fall in your scam. LoL


Given the power to do something, people will always be tempted to abuse it. A contract that lets its owner withdraw all the funds is not to be trusted, no matter how much of a saint the owner is (or claims to be). There are better ways to implement an emergency function, like sydhelly pointed out.

No matter how hard you worked, if people deposit 100ETH, it's already good enough to be tempted to run away with the money. I like the concept and everything, but I'd never take a risk like that. The whole point of smart contracts is to let the contract handle things in a trustless way, this is no different than a ponzi right now. In fact, it's even worse because you have the ability to take everything anytime you want.

Any update on the website and the next features for the Greed pit, Kat ? Smiley
It'll be a while still, I wish I could clone myself, I'm very bad at taking care of more than one thing at a time... today I'll be promoting Ethstick, perhaps tomorrow too. After that I'll get back to working on webstuff. I've been waiting for my new geth node to update for the past 4 days :S

Wow, so many new replies, thanks for the support everyone! I'm gonna have breakfast and chill for a bit, and after that I'll start promoting the app.
Feel free to help by spreading the word to people or communities you may know Smiley

That was a crazy run, I'm going to go get some sleep now. I hope you guys didn't scare potential newcomers off with your crazy investments... we're here for the long term, so take it easy! Smiley
Tomorrow I'll focus on promoting the app; I even forgot to have dinner with all the excitement. Feel free to chase some carrots meanwhile.
Good night everyone!

This is significantly closer to being honestly represented at least.

Oh nice...so i am significantly closer to being honestly scammed with these kind of ponzies people attempt to run behind the fake claim that ETH contracts dont let you run away with _owner wallet coins?
 Roll Eyes
You're misunderstanding the code. The owner can't upload new functions to the app, only those already there can be used. Changing the owner only changes the person that the contract belongs to, so for example it would allow a new person to change settings or get the returns from the fees, but unless there was some malicious bit of code when it was first uploaded, the owner can't touch the contract's funds. The contract itself is some sort of wallet that can only be accessed through programmed functions.

That being said, people will try anything to sneakily introduce something in the program that will let them steal from users. That's why it's very important to inspect the code carefully a few times before participating, and not listen to anything people say. Many fake accounts around that just try to lure people.

Good work, I love that you actually take the time to test your code and make something original.
Thanks! I'm somewhat of a perfectionist and I have a hard time sleeping if my negligence might put people's money at risk. I hope this app provides lots of ethers to a lot of people, all while having fun and some healthy competition.

Here's what my contracts tab looked like after I finished testing (I even had to submit the final version 5 times because I couldn't get it verified):

Alright guys, I'm about to make my new app public, in 15 to 30 minutes. I already gave the link to a few good supporters of the greed pit. You get the early access treatment too, if you happen to be around:

https://etherscan.io/address/0xbA6284cA128d72B25f1353FadD06Aa145D9095Af

It has a lot of potential, I'll add the link to the forum thread as soon as I publish it  Wink

Not quite as nice as The Greed Pit but it seems to work well with quick payouts since the most you can make is 1eth at a time.
The promo will make you like it more, I think Grin This was harder to code than the pit in some ways (that damn ranking...), but I tried to keep it simple to attract the average joe. Going public very, very soon!

Edit: NOW PUBLIC! here's the link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1428691.0

100+ payouts so far and the public announcement was roughly 30 minutes ago, talk about domination Cool I'll wait until tomorrow to advertise like crazy, so people who supported the greed pit can still get in "early" for a good chance at awesome profits.

Damn, it feels good to release a proper app after so much work and have it be warmly received!

And it rolls !  Grin
Indeed, things are about to get really interesting  Cool

Can't get my new app verified, either the wallet is broken when it uploads a contract, the compiler I'm using generates the wrong bytecode, or the verification script fails. Every attempt costs me money, and I've wasted hours already... very frustrating. But I'll keep trying. If at least I knew what the problem is...
115  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: The Ethereum x5 Ponzi - JUST launched, send any amount of ETH and get x5 on: April 06, 2016, 05:46:01 PM
33% fee no thanks.
116  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: The Small Ponzi on: April 06, 2016, 05:42:55 PM
Lol, the scams continue... they even create new accounts just for it. We need the mods to get serious, this place has become a shithole.

Anyway, my awesome new ponzi that I've been working on for the past 2 days is gonna be live sometime next hour as I just finished testing. I can promise you it's a lot better than anything you've seen so far. Prepare your ethers if you wanna make some fast, safe profit Cool

Doing some website maintenance, it'll be over soon, don't panic Wink

Edit: back online.
118  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ETH] THΞ GREEŠ PIT - A pyramid with random and strategic elements - FEES HALVED on: April 06, 2016, 01:19:37 PM
I think I finally fixed the bug on my upcoming app, will be going live in the next 6h, starting the final round of testing Smiley

Anyway, we still need more people in the pit, it's too dark and cold for comfort!
119  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [eth] Unique pyramid scheme which lasts, with sound logic. [beta] on: April 06, 2016, 01:16:08 PM
It seems that I'm getting it wrong everytime. Can someone please explain to me what I did wrong?
You should be doing all this in the testnet or in a private net. You're wasting your (and potentially other people's) money...
120  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Recommended pyramid on: April 06, 2016, 01:56:34 AM
Well, most of the transactions are from the owner's multiple accounts or his friends, they do it to lure people and then they let it die, so whoever is stuck in the end gets fucked while they make a profit. Also, it didn't get proper advertisement and a copy of it came out without fees, that's why it died.


I hate fuking scammers.. I should have done my research. 99% of the time I do. I saw this one pop up hardly anyone was on it. So I thought hey.. I'm getting in early. Lesson learned.. Fool me once..  I guess if this is type of stuff is going to continue. It would be nice to have a thread of vetted user/posters listed. Kind of like the escrow page.


I had sometime to think about it.. That's exactly the reason they don't continue to promote/support it they've made what they wanted in beginning . His 5 accounts and fee's.. Not as profitable to keep supporting for everyone involved. Easier to create a new and everyone rushes in. Rinse and repeat..  Karma will get people like this.. 
I also fell for it because it was his first app, but then came the second and the third, etc. Every few hours a new one. The same 4-5 people always creating hype in his posts, too. If you want a decent ponzi to invest into I'm gonna release mine sometime in the next 12h or so, trying to fix one issue. I'm making it so it's the best out there. Cool
