I'm all out of CLAMs. I sold 50 btc at 0.00076 and about 50 btc more around 0.0008. That's it for me. The price should go up now. Great for those that got in at such a cheap price!

curious, has anyone approached you about negotiating a lump buyout of your remaining Clams? I'd guess you have about 200,000 based on that sell order that was at .0045 on Poloniex. Perhaps a coalition of JD investors/gamblers would be interested in getting a lot at a fixed price.

Yes, I'm open to it. So far only 2 people have PMd me with OTC offers and I have made deals with both of them.

I have nothing against you, you have your own interests to take care and CLAM rules allowed you to dig and sell whenever you want.

Revealing your existence and the number of coins you own, in addition to your selling pressure, has probably been crucial for this price dump.

But the main question is what now? Where do we go from now? Cause if this the whole plan, you digging and dumping, I m afraid you wont have anyone to sell to. Cause I know I would not place a single satoshi as a buy order knowing the price s gonna go only down. Also, only a noob would enter the market now and buy so new people re out too. I know some people re gonna say I m sharing negative marketing to CLAM but I would not like for these noobs who enter PoS for the first time to come here and lose their money without even having a chance to profit. On the other hand, I would like CLAM to go down, ever. I hope you see my point, what do we do now? Where does CLAM go from here?

Not to mention the fact I hope you do plan to keep some of your CLAM to stake and profit from PoS in the future as well. So, dev team, community, where do we go from here? What is the way out? Sitting and doing nothing isnt cause one does not need to be a genius to figure out where all this is gonna end if nothing s being done.

No doubt, the digging was the catalyst of the price dump. But CLAMs were previously overpriced. The price today is closer to the right price given the current situation: there are potentially still millions of undug CLAMs and the only use case for clams is JustDice.

I think you and others are focused way too much on the price of CLAM. If your only interest in Clam is to profit from it then Clams won't go anywhere. The price matters very little. For Clams to succeed, there needs to more reasons to own Clams.

It is true that if I had been more careful and not revealed my total dig amount, people would not have caught on so quickly, and I could probably have made more BTC from my CLAMs. But as dooglus said, I was adding 500k clams to a total supply of 800k clams. The price will go down no matter what. If no one knew how many I had and I sold it real slow, the price might have gone down much slower. I would have made a lot more money, and a lot more people would have lost money.

Remember that CLAM price had a huge run up before I started digging. Clam had only 1 use case, which is JustDice. The price at that time was not sustainable. I saw that and decided to cash out at that time. I'm sure others saw it too and cashed out. Waves and waves of selling is not because of me. Of course, I added to the selling pressure by putting in limit sells above market. But that doesn't really matter, because once Dooglus revealed my total dig amount, the market started to panic. The price fairly quickly dropped to the new "true" price given the new information out there. I did not increase my selling. Actually, my selling strategy has remained unchanged since the beginning.

Not sure why you're trying to play neckbeard detective on curious but it doesn't sound like he owns that service, more that he might use it.

He has specifically stated that it was his..

This shitcoin has KeyserSozeMC smeared all over it ! Shocked

This is my search tool: www.google.com

There! I own Google.

Oh wow. Interesting. Did he provide proof? Where's the wallet coming from and why did he chose to crash the price the way he did instead playing the game calmly and earning more that way?

Guess the recent talk of stopping the digging ability of clams was the next bad result coming from that wooden hammer method he used.

I did not choose to crash the price. The unfortunate revealing of my large potential dig caused the price to crash, because everyone sold fearing that I will crash the price. That's how market works. It will find the true price based on available information.

Curious???  Any chance his first name is Clement?  The creature who searches the sea for his toys who gets help finding them from an insider.....HHmmm?

Very fishy!

Damn! You got me.

By the way, if anyone wants to buy clams OTC, let me know.

I applaud them and thank them for devising, planning, hiding, carrying out, and revealing this conspiracy with timing that is both elegant and explosive.

The only way it could have been better is if they had revealed it on November 22.

I especially want to thank "curious" for not using a new user name when it came time to reveal.

How idiotic would someone have to be to reveal themselves with a similar username. So they went through all the trouble to seed a ton of addresses, create this coin, pump it with the help of JustDice, and then dump it. But finally trip up by using an account with a similar name just so that people think there's a conspiracy. LOL

It's a coincidence, but feel free to believe in conspiracies if that makes you feel better.

That's my point. Anyone with a nugget of trading smarts could have squeezed much more money out of the community over time than the digger has. Ergo, malicious intent.

You're so smart. Good for you. Not everyone has trading smarts like you to know how to increase the money supply by 50% without dropping the price. But awesome that you do. If you ever get the chance, you can manipulate the market better.

Be happy that I did not manipulate the market. Would you have preferred that I pumped and dumped the coin? And made more money from this? Jeez...

Would be easy enough to request exchanges to freeze Clams, take a snapshot and simply BAN your clam address.

LOL

Well, I'm not mad at you.  I lost about 90% of my equity but that's just the way the market works.  I only wish you'd have tried to optimize your position a little better so the crash didn't happen so violently.

I could have been better at hiding how many clams I have. By accidentally revealing that info, it lead to a market panic. The amount of clams I sold pales in comparison to what everyone else dumped on the market. I'm definitely the catalyst. So sorry about that.

Why were you digging at such a slow pace as opposed to digging all the addresses at once? I suppose this was intended to hide the true number of coins you had access to?

I wasn't thinking too much about hiding the true number of coins. If I did, I would have realized to not dig them in descending block order. The reason I was digging so slowly was because that was the speed I was selling them at on Poloniex. To not risk losing the coins, I did not have a clamcoin wallet set up and I did not want to send more coins than necessary to Poloniex. So there was no need to dig them up faster. The only reason I'm digging them up faster now is to try to remove some uncertainty.

A I wrong in assuming most of these addresses were funded from faucets originally? When the digging started I had analyzed a few of the addresses, and that is the conclusion I came to. Looking over the 2 addresses you signed, I am still under the same assumption.

I won't say, but wouldn't it be so sad if I was just scamming faucet payouts for tiny amounts of bitcoin. And those faucets payout didn't make me much but it made me a ton of clams!

Not exactly unbiased to claim that Clam would die if we changed the rules, coming from someone that is gaming the current system to make $100,000s..

It's pretty unbiased. Changing rules for Clam will not have any affect on me liquidating my clams. You can't make the change without a hardfork and you need at least a couple weeks (if not months) to do the hardfork. I can always accelerate my digging if that's the case. Which you can see, I'm doing right now.

That is one crazy coincidence that your account was made before clam and your name is what it is. Did you consider the value implications, regardless of whether you are or aren't, of using this name rather than just making a new account? I believe you btw, just saying that it's an extreme coincidence and will be perceived in a way that creates uncertainty. I guess at this point it would be pretty hard to bring CLAM's price much lower but is that something you're committed to doing? How do you value sale rate vs price (are you trying to get out fast or slow?) Are you planning on just selling and leaving or being involved in clam somehow long term?

It's not a crazy to have an account earlier than the birth of clams. And I'm not sure why you think the name curious is close to creative. Sure, they both start with a c. And no, it did not occur to me that it would create uncertainty and that I should use a new account.

I am not committed to decreasing the price of clam. I obviously want the price to go back up. So hopefully, by coming forward, it can help the price.

I am selling relatively slowly. Basically what the market can bear. The recent drop was because of the fear of me dumping and not because my selling actually caused it.

I probably will stick around. Clam is one of the few good altcoins. I was disappointed to see people wanting to change the rules because of me. That would kill the coin a lot quicker than anything I could do. When I'm done selling, the price will recover. But if you change the rules, you lose trust and clams will just become like all the other scamcoins.

Howdy, glad to see the situation of uncertainty changing now! Congratulations on lucking out with Clams. I have a couple things I've been wondering:

Did you find out about Clam in August? Or did you know about it and wait until it was worth digging to you? What were your thoughts/feelings on all these seemingly worthless private keys for old empty addresses being suddenly worth good money?

How come you didn't come forward earlier? One thing that confused me about the anonymous digging was that it ultimately reduced the amount of bitcoin you'll be able to trade the Clams for.

I've found out about Clams before August and didn't think much about it because it wasn't worth much. In August, I came back to it and realized it was actually worth a lot. So decided to dig them up. I was extremely excited and happy about it obviously.

I didn't come forward earlier because I didn't know what good it would do. I think I was wrong.

If you're not holding, you're dumping. I think that being measured about it doesn't change this fact. This is not to say that it's a bad thing (I'm agnostic about that), but call a spade a spade. Btw, thanks for identifying yourself and adding some small measure of clarity to this situation. I do believe that anyone else here, if they found themselves in your shoes, would be responding to the same economic incentive in much the same manner you are.

Ok, you are right.

Isn't it a curious curiosity that your name is so similar to the creative creator of CLAM?

Congrats on digging so many CLAMs.

Some random intrusive questions - feel free not to answer any you don't like, of course:

* is this mostly all one big BTC wallet, or have you been collecting a bunch of wallets?
* is it from a real service, or was it created just for the sake of having a lot of addresses?
* how many BTC did you make so far from digging and selling?
* do you have an account on Just-Dice? I'm sure people there would like to talk to you "live"

If I was the creator of CLAM, I would not have picked a name so similar or I would just use a new account to post. Smiley
I believe that the CLAM creator was honest and did not pre-seed a lot of addresses before the launch.

What do you mean by one big wallet versus a bunch of wallets. Wallet is just a virtual concept. It holds a lot of addresses. Does it matter if I separated my addresses into multiple wallets versus 1 big one?

Sorry, but not going to answer some questions. And I do not have an account on JD.

Hey, Curious,

I checked your post history.  I'm curious (no wait, you're curious) about the 30-month posting gap between 2/13 and today.

Curiosity killed the cat but got revived by clams!

If you could pick maybe 2 address's you dug from the same block (any block) as sign messages for them that would be perfect.

Just want to say, if its really true thank you for coming forward!!

Proof given but now taken down.
