So why chaos? Probably has something to do with the pseudo-random nature of hashing.

Meanwhile, back on the farm...

That's not my fate, I can already tell.  But if it were to happen, I would have someone else take care of the funds.  Thank you.

How do you know? Do you have ESPN or something?

Tell you what, just pay based on historical average and keep whatever my share would be.

This "because this is what imsaguy wants" is a bunch of crap.

I asked why my btc payouts were pending BEFORE the website went down.  Its not like I made some number up knowing there was no way to verify the claim.  I didn't get my otc rating by lying and cheating.
1268  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: [102% TESTING] I want your hashing power! "Project #2" on: May 02, 2012, 04:10:28 PM
We'll I feel its unfair I had 9.26 btc waiting to be paid out via. The last two pending transactions plus whatever wasn't pending right before the server when down. There is no way I would be able to make that up in your one day free for all.

I think historical averages are fair as long as you just look at each member's % of the total BTC available.  I have to assume most or all of us used this pool as a backup to GPUMAX so we all would have more work for those couple days.

I still don't understand what you mean by free for all 102% to pay out your settlement?  You will generate even more btc from those shares, no??  Or are the coins you have only going to cover the extra 2%?  This is wild.

Agreed to both, although I'm only owed ~0.6 btc as I've only pointed my ~700mhs desktop here not my entire farm.

I've said all along I'm at 10.x btc.  Your average things pays me 2-3btc, roughly 20-30% of what was due. 
1269  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: [102% TESTING] I want your hashing power! "Project #2" on: May 02, 2012, 03:43:47 PM
Personally, I would prefer using historical payouts instead. That would make more sense, and fairer to all.

I agree too, that is why I came up with the idea. imsaguy had a hissy fit however... We need to make him happy he is a priority clearly.

Don't blame me because you had no backups on your data and were too busy to fund your live wallet.  There were pending transactions that should have went out and didn't because you weren't around. "Travelling" or some such.

I agree, I had over 2.6 BTC in unpaid transactions on my account.
//DeaDTerra

I had over 10BTC in unpaid transactions on my account.  Historical averages show I hopped tygrr just like tygrr hopped pools, mainly when gpumax was down, I was on tygrr.  Gpumax was down the couple of days before tygrr went down.  How do you make that fair?
1271  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: [102% TESTING] I want your hashing power! "Project #2" on: May 02, 2012, 03:18:37 PM
Since people like imsaguy is not happy with us paying out based on historical averages

I think it was you, but it might have been someone else that said gpumax was down so your loads were higher than normal.  I'm not trying to be a jerk, I just think it shorts everyone.

Thanks for the logos, I guess I'll have to make a contest so I can choose the best one.

Work has begun on making an informational website to allow you to see your account balance/transaction history at any time.  There just weren't any good shared worksheet solutions out there that preserved people's privacy.

I'm anticipating making some availability here shortly.

1277  Economy / Lending / Re: The Lending Bubble on: May 01, 2012, 11:52:25 PM
I'm now thinking this is mostly about the Pirate bubble  (the Bitcoin Savings and Trust ponzi scheme).

How long do Ponzi schemes typically last?  Are there any research studies done on this matter?  I'm guessing that the higher the interest rate, the shorter the duration.

It looks like the original Charles Ponzi scheme lasted around 8 months. He was doubling investments in 90 days.

The first MMM ponzi (Russia 1994) lasted 6 or 7 months.

The second MMM ponzi (Stock Generation) lasted two years - because they had rules that let them arbitrarily reduce the amount in your account (even down to zero).

The Romanian Caritas ponzi lasted 2 years and 4 months.  8 times return in 6 months (same as 100% in two months).

The Madoff scheme lasted a very long time (20-48 years), but gave much lower returns (as low as 10%/year).

Bitcoin Savings and Trust is almost 6 months old and returns 34%/month.

It seems that giving out 40% interest per month is fairly typical for Ponzi schemes.  There is probably a balance between having a very high rate to get people to join, and actually being able to pay it out - which is why they don't promise 100% monthly returns.





First off, FPS&T/BS&T has been around longer than 6 months. 

Second, you've yet to actually prove its a ponzi, therefor the rest is just idle speculation.  What else you got?

The new server is close to being done. This is key before we can make payouts. We still have the old data. I do not have an ETA on when this will be done. I do not have an official word from bitvps.

You know all I know:)

How much data loss was there?

Ask your bff rg. He knows better than I do.

Why would he tell me?  My name isn't on the account. 

I asked because you said you had the old data, but obviously it probably doesn't have every last share.  I was just curious as to how much it had.
