update ?

can you show us latest report , thank you

I have not been working actively on this fund, so the report is pretty brief:

Investments: 178BTC
Income: 2BTC  (one from a small loan, the other as a gratuity)
Return is around 1%/month currently based on a 30 June commencement.
Excuse my ignorance. How did you profit off of the loan?

They paid back more than I provided to them.  The loan was without interest.
So it was a voluntary "tip" or gratuity on top of the loan. Interesting.

Promote bitcoin to outsiders. Donate to that Tesla thing and get a really positive article in The Oatmeal, then get coverage on random billboards and the New York Times!

Japan has very  strict gun laws, and less dead people pr. year from shootings. Look it up. The american way is horrible.
America already has a SHITLOAD of guns. It's too late to ban them now.

1332  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: PUSH Me / PULL U on: August 25, 2012, 04:06:51 AM
Bitcoin will succeed by sticking to its strengths.  Push transaction, irreversible, with as much or as little personal information disclosed.

Text messaging is a push transaction.  Email is a push transaction.  People will get the hang of bitcoin once they try it.

The whole idea of automatically pulling money from someones account on a recurring basis is a dying business model.  Customers will pay and pay again for products they like.



I disagree that pulling money is a dying business model. Every bill I have, I've set to pull automatically so I don't have to A) remember to pay it and B) spend time logging into accounts and paying.

The function of pulling money, specifically for recurring payments, is desperately needed in Bitcoinworld. This doesn't mean the protocol should be changed to enable it, rather it means ewallets and services should create opt-in pull capabilities.

ie - in my Blockchain.info wallet, there should be a button (perhaps assigned to just one of my wallet addresses) where I tick "make pullable" and it then gives an authentication PW. I give this authentication PW to any merchant with whom I'd like to give pull access, such as my favorite porn site or the electric company. They can then pull money from that account.

Note that at any point I can opt back out, by telling Blockchain.info not to allow pulls anymore. I retain all the power of Bitcoin sercurity, with a wonderful new feature that will be used in thousands of ways.
I don't see how this is any different from just handing them your private key. Rather than use the third party Blockchain.info, I'd prefer to:
- Give my electric company a private key
- Write a script (or, if I weren't a scripting guy, use someone else's script) to fund the pubkey periodically
This means that
- The electric company can pull money as needed
- The electric company can't pull more money than is in the address
- It's set-and-forget
- I can cancel it by stopping the script and emptying the address they control

1334  Economy / Securities / Re: S.DICE - Want SatoshiDICE dividends? IPO currently in progress. on: August 25, 2012, 03:44:20 AM
I cashed out my GSDPT because it is bubbling. The stock is trading at nearly 2 times the value of the S.DICE backing.
There's the 2 things I predicted:
- This is an arb opportunity
- Greater GLBSE volume --> greater demand --> higher price
 Cheesy

How does one go about arbitraging this for profit? Besides creating a passthrough?
1. Buy shares on MPEX
2. Trade shares 1:1 with DeaDTerra for pass-through shares
3. Sell pass-through shares for more than you bought them for
4. Wash, rinse, repeat.

It will cost you the initial 20 BTC, though, so either keep arbing both ways at every opportunity, or use a broker, or find some other thing you want at MPEX to justify the cost.
1335  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Tecshare lied about me scamming him on: August 25, 2012, 03:40:05 AM
2 problems:
- You offered him early payment, then retracted the offer
- This was not spec work; you can't expect him to get nothing for his time.

I'm not saying he needs to be compensated in full. However, he did spend time on it and should receive partial payment for the drafts. Certainly not $150, but something partial. Then he can hand over the high-res and you can both move on.

Speaking of which, where are the source files? They've been paid for...

I find dank's "bank" more laughable than this thread. In fact I'd much rather ridicule him; I have no problem with gender changes. (Does that make me accepting or does me making fun of dank make me a bad person? lol)

The one thing I see missing is your pay back plan. There's also the risk that the price of BTC rises... perhaps you should find someone to do a CFD with you and you can take the long position.

Signing a message with a private key doesn't prove anything.
Controlling funds doesn't mean they're yours to spend.
You are wrong. In order to sign the message, one must have the private key, which in turn means the ability to spend the funds. Unless you're insinuating that he's paying someone off...
