I wonder if they'll crash the market when they sell the BTC? 

i really hope they dont sell my coins and give me $11 each for them :/

That would be a pity shameless robbery Undecided

FTFY

But sadly that's a usual kind of robbery for the legacy "justice" system... Undecided

Easier way would be working a deal with bitstamp for a USD credit line collateraliced in BTC. You can even use some multisig addresses to hold the collateral, removing some trust issues. When you need more USD in bitstamp, you can send more BTC to the address. When BTC raises, your collateral becomes more valuable, and your credit gets better.
But on a crashing market you'll need to have a lot of BTC on hold to refill the collateral, or that could end on a disaster...

There are also a bunch of accounts that never did a withdrawal, so for those I am likely going to put together a donation

I would advise you not to do that. Keep them in reserve, safely stored somewhere offline. Forever, if it comes to that. But you're exposing yourself to a potentially huge liability in the future, if you do otherwise.

Meanwhile, when they remain frozen, they act like a small donation to the whole economy. Wink

The only way that I can see to make it a little more provably fair to investors is making a system of distributed server seeds, and giving access to each new server seed to a different big investor. That way you can even distribute the risk of holding everything on a single hosting service. So on each roll the central server asks to each seed server what's the hash for that roll of that user, and the seed servers answer with a corresponding hash which is then used to roll the final number.

Main drawbacks would be a lot of added complexity, maybe increased unreliability if you need all the servers up all the time, probably a cost/benefit ratio too high...

and the whale as a big investor......?

Yes, but he would have access to only one server seed, which would be worthless without the main server seed, and the other 3, 4, 5 you'll have distributed around....

The only urgent change that has to be done as soon as possible, in my humble opininon, is a very simple one, and is putting a huge warning on the investing windows about how risky the investment is, how returns aren't at all guaranteed, how there will be a lot of variance and there can be huge losses on the short term, only invest what you can afford to lose, etc, etc. Maybe even put a little warning always next to invested amount when it is >0.

Maybe increasing investors awareness, there would be less whining, which is the biggest problem at this moment...

If something has to be done about limiting "daytrading" investments, I would say that a small divestment fee could be a reasonable solution. It would encourage remaining invested, not to degrade the max bet with those fluctuations.

some investors will wait ages to recover their losses as everyone will invest back now  Grin
Exactly, those who stayed are going to wait ages for recovery, while those who left and go back now are going to benefit from the lower variance! Insane.

Yes, that's me. Kinda hurts to know that even dooglus divested, plus he suddenly changed the rules while the only customers that could have made us quickly recoup those losses was playing, pissing him off big time.

I was ready to lose 100% of my investment playing against Nakowa because I have faith in both math and the weaknesses of gambler psychology, but realizing that it will now take ages to recoup that investment because of a management decision really sucks.

Includes me as well. I'm not happy about this.

The whale showed us that large bets are risky for the house. Why not to change house edge with a bet size? So that someone could bet even 1000 bitcoins at once, but with a house edge like 20-30%.

The house was never in any danger of going bust. That's the beauty of the Kelly criterion. You nevere risk more than 1%.

Count me between the unhappy ones. We were already voting with our wallets, by staying invested. This unilateral decision has screwed everybody. Gamblers and investors.  Undecided

Step 2 in my method is supposed to combine all the unspent inputs into one giant input. That mixes all the coins together. Coins in the same address from different inputs are not necessarily mixed yet.

It seems to me that "your method" puts all the liability on you. You won't make enough from your fees to pay to your lawyers.

Maybe some optional Hall of Fames could be a nice incentive to gamblers. It would be nice if they can opt in or out of them on the account configuration. Something like a Top Ten of Amounts Wagered, Won and Lost could do the trick.
15  Economy / Securities / Re: ASICMINER: Entering the Future of ASIC Mining by Inventing It on: September 05, 2013, 09:10:27 PM
I thought that Asicminer sent 1 satoshi per share to identify how many shares belong to each address.  115tTroRo3B9ZDQ6ATJGDCHcNEVbjJoZnF looks like the address used to send both dividend payments and satoshis, but it looks like the satoshis stopped being sent after 2013-05-29 (https://blockchain.info/address/115tTroRo3B9ZDQ6ATJGDCHcNEVbjJoZnF?offset=100&filter=0).  Did they stop doing this?  Isn't this the only official way to verify ownership of shares?

The reception of the dividends is all the proof that's needed. They stopped sending the satoshis to avoid embedding dust into the blockchain.

Site profit decreased a little bit, is it the good time to invest now?

It's a good time to invest if the overall investment decreased.

Just-dice keeps popularizing the new "investor's fallacy" Tongue

Any time is equally good or bad for investing. It's just random.
