so, I don't usually use the word in the subject line, though it's been used of me frequently. (which I don't like.)  I have a large number of ideas some of which are immediately profitable.  I'd like a mentor/sponsor (someone already rich, who has made it) to take me under his wing for mutual benefit.

I am sure you will find me interesting and I look forward to connecting!  PM me.  We can discuss questions here, such as the fields of my ideas etc.

I'd like to apply for a job.

I remember back in the day ... Actually it was illogical to me at the time ... "once in a lifetime" buys that pop up every, oh, year or so in the bitcoin world.
not sure if trolling or twat

3  Economy / Securities / Investing in coinsortium on: August 22, 2014, 09:20:23 AM
I remember back in the day, shares of BTC-TC traded as high as 10 bitcoins each. They were initially sold for (IIRC) 0.1 BTC. Even at 7 or 8 bitcoins the payments justified the price (barely) at 1.5% annually. Actually it was illogical to me at the time and I suspect the price had a healthy boost from the fact that you could vote on securities with shares.

Today we have Coinsortium which is the only share exchange that lets you invest in the business. As far as I can tell their IPO has closed with 100,000 shares outstanding (vs. BTC-TC's 10,000 shares). But BTC-TC's shares represented 10% of the business, coinsortium's represents 100%. These shares are currently going for less than 0.0016.

Based on how many shares burnside released and the life cycle of the platforms, I'm guessing COINS could represent one of those "once in a lifetime" buys that pop up every, oh, year or so in the bitcoin world. If they manage to repeat BTC-TC's success I would be very happy.

Does this sound right to you guys or am I missing something? I bought 20 shares.

This is golden
You don't want me to bring up your laundry list of mistakes.
Bring it on

On second thought, no, you're too much of a troll.

I really don't know how else to explain it pascal. I take what you say with a grain of salt. And, again, laughing at the suffering of others does not make people respect you. Au contraire, I think you will find it has the opposite effect.
If this happened to a newb in the bitcoin scene, I would agree with you. But looking at your past record (like this 33 page masterpiece: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=113708.0), I can only laugh at this.

Look guys, he's opening a bank. And he's being honest with you. He's telling you he's going to gamble with your money.

Is your local banker any more or less trustworthy for NOT telling you?

Really pascal? You make a lot of mistakes around here. You don't want me to bring up your laundry list of mistakes. But this isn't a mistake. You're laughing at the suffering of others, and you mean to do it.

Something terrible happened. Both this loan address and the other one I made were sent to other people. Although this is obviously my fault, I am upset that you didn't check that the address was clean (it has previous transactions). I guess i'm not upset at you, just upset in general. Luckily I was able to locate the person who I sent bitcoins to for the other transaction, but not this one.

Don't worry I will have no problem paying it back. It's just an annoying mistake. I wonder if the person I sent them to even has access to the wallet anymore. It would kind of suck if the coins were to sit in that address forever. Taunting me.

Think, usagi, think. March 6th, 2014. 0.175 bitcoins. Did I buy something? Hmm.
I'm sorry this has happened. I was much more concerned about sending it to the correct address, rather than whether or not that address was clean - which so far has not been normally requested.

I've been doing some analysis of this address and I found that the owner of the 12MVspMShYYoQgHrMG4SQsXhPS7WxsEkFX sent bitcoins to address 17zeqpQ7QcQ8kTSBWhnNzs2FwtnUAqymgp, which belongs to the user leobitco. Of course, that is not much of a lead since he hasn't signed on in 1.5 years - just doing all I can here in the hopes that it might refresh your memory. If I were you, I'd attain the email for that account from a moderator and then send him an email or give him a phone call if the email leads to that information  - doubt it will work, but it's worth a shot.

repaid! ty

unfortunately it does not appear as if I will be able to recover the funds.

I've been active here mainly on the Securities forum for 2 or 3 years now. Almost since I got involved with bitcoin. I've now made a small mistake transferring bitcoins to the wrong address.

The address is 12MVspMShYYoQgHrMG4SQsXhPS7WxsEkFX, with a previous transaction of 0.175 BTC on March 6th, 2013.

This is the most likely place someone would know who owns the address, yet at the same time it's unlikely anyone would know. If you received these bitcoins please consider giving them back. I had just bought some bitcoins to pay off another old BMF shareholder and was going to pay a second one when this happened. It's been a long road and a mistake like this makes me very depressed given all I've put into this. If you have these bitcoins please help.

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [JOB] Altcoin Developer on: July 26, 2014, 10:28:16 PM
Hello.

I'd like to create my own altcoin. I have a few specific ideas for what I want to do, but I do not mind if you copy an existing coin (almost any coin will do).

I am a coder myself, so I will have oversight on the project, said hired developers however will be doing all the "real" work.

I don't mind paying in bounty or cash. Yes I said cash. Which in this case will be bitcoin.

Send me a proposal including what you want in terms of pay, between $1,000 and $5,000. If you can complete the objectives below, and (important) any other ideas you might have for the coin. Here are my essential requirements for the job:

Basics:
1. Command line and GUI client for windows, mac and linux. Command line only is okay too, but more money for GUI obviously.
2. Custom algorithm which will be "security by obscurity" to help the GPU miners, until hashrate passes a certain threshold or at least for the first little while. We'll do what we can.
3. An exchange which is willing to host the coin for at least a year. Must be a reasonably active exchange, please.
4. A pool or two who can commit to hosting the coin at no more than 3%, for at least one year.
5. Ability to premine a significant number of coins (not to scam; it will be disclosed; but to start a foundation for the coin).


As you can see the basic setup is relatively straightforward. The magic will come in how I trade and manage the coin. I'm very open to suggestions and info on things I would need to be aware of as someone in charge of the codebase for a coin.

I look forward to any offers!

18  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: OPENRIGS -- WARNING, DO NOT ORDER on: June 19, 2014, 05:43:08 AM
More information on the OpenRigs scam:

https://www.bitcoinregime.com/2014/05/10/hello-members-of-the-cryptocurrency-community-important-info-about-openrigs-scam-please-read/

-----

Hello, members of the cryptocurrency community.

This post is being made to alert everyone of two very large potential scams occurring in the cryptocurrency scene. OpenRigs and VertPay are two companies owned by the same person, a Reddit user who goes by fluffyponyza. The main concern here is OpenRigsí history. Nearly twenty Reddit users have complained about never receiving their orders after weeks or even months after their original order, and many more users may have been scammed, but have not made a post about it. fluffyponyza has blamed these orders to be the result of customs delaying or even losing their packages, yet there are several key "flags" that these are not the result of accidents:

While delays are being blamed on the result of long customs wait times, the actual shipping service estimates from the shipping companies are much shorter than the estimated wait times on OpenRigs. Orders are still arriving weeks and months later than the estimates, and the majority have not arrived at all.
Extensive research has uncovered many users complaining about not receiving their orders. Out of all 20 users I found, only two users ever received their frame. One of the users who received his frame stated that its build quality was very poor, and included pictures to substantiate their claims.
OpenRigs has its own subreddit, /r/openrigs, in which users can use to post questions and concerns. After getting in touch with some of their customers, I have found out that these customers have made many posts about never receiving their order which were removed from the forum.
With most consumers being based out of the United States, and OpenRigs being based out of South Africa, fluffyponyza is immune to any scam reports in the US. As an international business cannot be sued in American courts, there is little to no legal action that can be taken against them. It is also unlikely that the courts in Africa would hear the case.
Out of their team members listed on VertPay, most if not all of them seem to be fake people created just to verify the claims on their website. Peter Kuhn, the CEO, claims he has worked in upper banking for ten years, yet not a single profile of his shows up on the net and there is no company nor article verifying these claims. Michael Marston, the sales director, claims to have worked for 15 years selling high end e-commerce solutions yet he too is not mentioned by any company and does not have any accounts. Arthur Pierce, their software engineer, has the exact same results. In fact, out of all seven team members listed on their website, there are only two that appear to be real: Brad Chun and Riccardo Spagni (fluffyponyza).
In order to help verify these claims, I sent an email to some of the users who has made a post about being scammed. Here are some messages received from these users talking about their experiences with the company:

"I havenít revived anything and the tracking number they gave me was from years ago. Seems like a total fucking scam. Wish I could get a refund."
"I received my frames but it took a very long time. During that time they did respond to my questions but ultimately they never should have shipped to the US using that method if it were going to take 4 months to arrive."
"I wont be able to go into full detail because Iím on my phone and donít really want to to type 5 months worth of waiting. Ordered it on Christmas day and still have yet to see it. They offered me a refund FINALLY about a week ago. Waste of $120. Go make one from home depot or Lowes for 3x cheaper. Also they wanted me to pay for the shipping upgrade after we had a fallout on reddit (WHICH HE DELETED). They eventually paid but it still went to the wrong state"
"I made the order on Nov 28th while they were having their ĎBlack Fridayí sale. On Dec 4 I get an email saying that they canít ship out my order until they get the goods to manufacture it. Dec 5 they told me my rig was being fabricated and Dec 19 I was told it was shipped and would receive a tracking number within a few days. On Jan 5 I emailed them asking what was up, and on Jan 7th they actually gave me tracking number. At this point itís ~6 weeks after I ordered it, it actually gets shipped. The next thing i see is that on Jan 23rd, itís status is now in Ďbag outí. Now, you can call it my fault or whatever, but until this point, I assumed openrigs was out of the USA. Thereís nothing about South Africa anywhere on their page unless you go looking under the ĎContact Usí part of the page. Itís not in any confirmation emails and itís not on the shipping page itself. The default currency is the USD, and itís a Ď.comí domain. Iím Canadian, I buy a lot internationally. Everything about their page from a first glance indicates itís out of the US. Itís deceptive as hell to not indicate where itís shipping. Iíd imagine there would have been a lot less people who would have ordered had it been more obvious where it was coming from. So thatís why I thought thereís no problem with surface shipping Ė I get packages from the US via surface shipping in < 2 weeks at the very max. After I contacted them a few times, and they told me to go track down the product with Canada Post, I stopped hearing responses. I finally got the product earlier this month (May 2nd I believe), over 5 months after having ordered it Ė well beyond the point of it being useful. The build itself was lazy. It looked like they just sheared the aluminum to the right length and packaged it up. There was very sharp edges on all of the pieces and you could cut yourself really easily. There was also no included foot pads so you cannot put it on a floor you want to not get destroyed."
Concerned users have also made these key points about VertPay:

Website seems to have popped up 5 days ago * "Vertcoined signed" agreements donít hold up in court * The non-real share model is most likely illegal in the States.
VertPay claims it is registered but shows no FinCen numbers, no MSB license, and no company registration info
No team members of VertPay have LinkedIn profiles or blogs
None of the team member pictures match any others in Google Image Search or TinEye. No online presence
The only mention on the net of any of their team members is Riccardo Spagni in relation to a poorly done site labelled "buttercoin" which looks liked a botched coin
The website whois lists POSTFACH 1609, Freising, Bayern as an address. This address does not exist
The website whois lists Peter Kuhn as the owner of VertPay.com
The only web listing for Peter Kuhn in Bayern is a listing for a vet clinic
Peter Kuhnís site profile claims his a ten-year veteran of the banking industry, yet he isnít on LinkedIn or any profile website or company website other than VertPay
In addition, one of /r/vertcoinĎs mods, jedigras, seems to be working directly with OpenRigs. In his most recent post, he confirmed that he not only works for OpenRigs but has become their US distributor. He says, "Iíve signed as the US distributor for OpenRigs.com." He also confirmed that he works for VertPay as well and that they are the same company. He says, "It turns out that OpenRigs and VertPay are real companies trying to build real goods and services around Crypto and Vertcoin, they have asked me to help oversee their operations because of my experience in payments and crypto, and I have agreed. You will find my name on their site."

The reason why this is being posted is to protect everyone in the community from being scammed. The evidence suggests that OpenRigs may have scammed thousands of dollars from people and fellow Redditors. The worst part is that now VertPay is asking for a $200,000 initial public offering (IPO).

A scam this large could seriously hurt not only the reputation of Vertcoin but also the credibility of cryptocurrency. Iím asking for this post to be stickied to achieve greater outreach, and for more users to learn about this scam.

All in all, I think this subreddit needs to distance itself as far as possible from VertPay, and I think fluffyponyza should be banned from this sub. For users reading this thread, please try to cut off all business with these companies, and also warn other members about this scam.

Thanks,

We know your time is precious, so weíll be quick

1. It is inappropriate for you, who is a competitor in the bitcoin securities market, to maintain a list of scammers.

2. You have me and my companies on your ridiculous list despite the fact that we are shipping about 50oz of silver a month (we just shipped another 14 oz. today -- see TU.SILVER thread) and that BMF has been increasing hashrate by more than 40% a month for the last few months.*

3. * based on the word of fluffypony, a known scammer (see here for example).

4. ** Who, despite me giving this info to you, has not appeared on your list

5. You did not respond when I asked you what the procedure was to be removed from your list.

Serious question: Are you biased? And if so, how can we trust you as an investment manager?
