wow that must of been hard to find considering I am only running 5 dedicated Bitcointalk forum advertising slots which links to that same page!

How on earth did you find it?Huh Tongue

I spend a lot of time on these forums, and only happened across this because I check in on your btcfpga thread every few days.

"5 dedicated Bitcointalk forum advertising slots"  I don't know what that is - but if it's real - it's effect seems underwhelming!

Well that turned out nicely. I'm the Julian in that article. Joel was requesting comments from Bitcoin evangelists etc via twitter.
I was in a bit of a rush to answer - but I think I gave a reasonable representation of the state of things.

Congrats for being a great PR person as always Erik. I tried to put Joel onto a few well-known names in the Bitcoin community for comment, but I think he was on a tight timeline for publication.

The bitcoin community provides an excellent user base of cryptographically-aware players which increases the practical understanding of ‘provably fair’ systems that don’t require a third-party authority.

Damn.. it's getting harder. I can't tell if that's a Z or a z  ... and I'm definitely missing some pieces now!
829  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Pirate wants to settle with individuals for less. Don't let him do it. on: August 31, 2012, 05:41:04 AM
I think PPT operators should bear in mind that if they choose to negotiate with pirate on behalf of their investors, they'll probably be leaving themselves wide open to liability if the investors are not happy with the outcome or if they do not vigorously pursue any and all means possible to recover their investors' money, up to and including taking legal action against pirate.  I'd strongly suggest that the PPT operators seek legal advice regarding their own position should they advise their clients not to deal with pirate directly.

I don't think PPT operators are even considering such a thing. What we're seeing though is outright -blockage- of client information. Chaang Noi is refusing to allow his own clients to contact Pirate even if they -want- to. That's going to make calling my bet a bit difficult to say the least, if everyone got paid except Chaang Noi's clients due to his stubborness.   Undecided

Chaang Noi's clients are his - not Pirate's. Your bet surely requires that Chaang Noi (Pirate's client) is paid.  (?)

When do you plan on moving on from Bitcoin?

Did I misunderstand this one or is it a silly question?
I meant when are you leaving.  Changing for clarification. 


When do you plan on leaving the internet?

So.. how are people going with this?

I think I have 6 (I'm not sure if the position 1 = 5 picture is just an example or is an actual piece?)

I would like to state here on behalf of Bitcoin Magazine that Matthew's bet has nothing at all to do with Bitcoin Magazine. This is not something approved by Bitcoin Magazine and images of Bitcoin Magazine placed there are used without consent of Bitcoin Magazine and without consulting with board of directors of Bittalk Media Ltd, ( publisher of Bitcoin Magazine ).


I have to say - I was surprised to see those images there.
On the one hand, I thought 'smart use of a space which gets views' - but my other feeling was 'oh dear.. is that Bitcoin Magazine subscription fees that were being wagered!?'

I don't believe that is the case at all - but it's a thought I think is likely to occur to those viewing it.

Yeah.. I tried it out of curiosity and got 0.0001 BTC.   I don't recall how long it took as I wasn't particularly desperate for the cash Wink

It can best be summed up by the statement, "A fool and his money are soon parted." And that's a good thing, we shouldn't protect the world's fools from themselves.

That depends a bit on your definition of 'protect'.   
We should educate and inform  in an effort to preempt - but not bail out.

It is also reasonable to punish and downrate 'service providers' who are scammers, in order to lessen the future impact.
If 'protection' is just helping to provide a safer environment, then it is a worthy goal so long as it doesn't mean red-tape and overbearing regulation.
835  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: How did people fall for this Pirate scam? on: August 30, 2012, 12:44:28 AM
Like many scams - the 'social' aspect played a huge part I believe.
Scammers & sociopaths tend to be friendly likeable people, and in this case he's made sure to really 'connect' with the community and build a buzz of discussion and enthusiasm - a long with a little 'intrigue' about exactly what his secret sauce is.

People felt they 'knew' pirate.  He's 'one of us' sort of thing.

The ad-hoc web of trust can be a great tool for business networking - but also a dangerous thing.   (Which has always made me somewhat suspicious of Ripple ever being practical!)

The decentralized, digital Bitcoin currency has caught the attention of people around the globe who are unhappy with how national bank mismanagement is impacting the world economy. It has also, apparently, caught the eye of one very clever schemer.

Anywho, Bitcoin needs to press on .  I would like to know who else we can reach out to that we haven't yet that could give more influence to bitcoin. I know we have Max Kieser's of the world.. but lets start a list....

EFF - https://www.eff.org/
FSF - http://www.fsf.org/

Would these guys support us? I've always admired them for standing firmly behind freedom.

No to EFF.

Large Bitcoin Ponzi Scheme Collapses With a Loss of $5.6 Million

2012-08-29

http://news.slashdot.org/story/12/08/29/0349226/large-bitcoin-ponzi-scheme-collapses-with-a-loss-of-56-million


Despite the many people calling it out as a Ponzi scheme from the beginning, Pirateat40 was able to collect millions of dollars worth of Bitcoins from thousands of Bitcoin users. At almost every stage Pirateat40 copied the path of the EVE Online Ponzi scheme except on a much larger scale with a far more liquid take. Now, it has shut down, and investors are wondering where their digital currency went. Quoting: 'He claimed that BS&T was sitting on 500,000 BTC on the day of the shutdown, worth more than $5.6 million USD at today's price of $11.38. "Once my process is released you'll understand more of how coins move around," he told members of the Bitcoin community last week. Pirateat40 initially promised to refund his investors' Bitcoin deposits plus interest within a week, effectively admitting that he did not have the Bitcoins on hand. The fund normally paid out on Mondays, but last Monday and today have passed so far without refunds. BS&T investors are complaining loudly and so-called "pass-through" funds that invested with BS&T are shutting down. As of this writing, BS&T says there is "no ETA on payments."'
