Articles summarizing interesting historical happenings would be cool. I like the one recently about bobsurplus...

If you ant to post them on your offsite blog that is cool but you may as well post them here also, which is fine, unless you are just trying to drive traffic over there..

I personally thing sagas in video format backed by screenshots would be the best, but would be more effort and complex..

Their used to be talk about writing a novel of the history of Cryptsy from its beginning to end and that is something I would really like to see..

Their is another topic by xtraelv running right now about historic btct scandals that would be a great source of potential topics.

Damn it feels good to get merits from Theymos..

But anarchism = chaos.
That's what they want you to think Wink

But socialism doesn't mean tracking everyone.
Then how is the central authority supposed to "give everyone their fair share" and take from those who have "too much" without tracking them and knowing what they have and don't have?

A tiny minority controls half of the bitcoins. Inequality at its best.
They WON, you lost, get over it.. You don't deserve it just because someone else has it.. They had the skill and the right timing..

There can be no socialist island in a capitalist world
Why? Because it can't compete? Does that mean you must destroy all capitalism in the world in order to achieve "true" communism?

Is that why you believe that...
I'm nearly certain communism is responsible for zero deaths as it has never been implemented
Huh

Please do continue telling us all about how dangerous the slippery slope of Leftism actually is..

A few of the ratings I actually don't agree with. I let those accounts be.

I don't like the idea of blindly copying all of lauda's tags.
With all of lauda's exclusions and removal from DT, I think that many wise members do not blindly agree with them all either..
If you DTs just copy them all, they might exclude you too if that is why any of them excluded lauda..

I think it is great what actmyname did by reviewing the accounts and then applying their own personal morality to the situations.. Though I didn't look at any of them myself to agree on any specifically..

Soon, you will have to prove all of those accusations to the tagged accounts you echo'd when they come screaming, because "Because lauda did" is not good enough.. Be prepared to defend any tags you place..

A banking sector analyst should be smarter than that.. You know English well, you are just being lazy..
Post intelligent responses, engage in discussion, clean up your grammar to a readable format, and you will get your merits..

I have been interested in this case mostly because I have a + on his profile from a deal a long time ago.. I have been back and forth about removing + from accounts that are now red, and have thought about contacting stingers about this situation to see if he got it resolved..
I am undecided if I should remove +s from people that are now red, due to archive sake vs current situations, and this case is up in the air..
I have thought about asking stingers about his situation previously, asking him why he hasn't been able to get the reds removed from him..

If OG blocked his PMs their may be more to it than I know..

It seems like the lender is somewhat satisfied with the outcome..

Ok so just to clarify things to everyone here. I would like to report that "stingers" paid back the money "150$" that i sent to him. he texted me on telegram as well as on this forum explaining to me that had his own reasons and asked for my forgiveness.

now regardless of  his intentions or story of why he stopped replying. I do appreciate that he finally came and talked to me and of course paid my money back.

so from my side the problem has been solved and i do forgive him for what happened. i will also delete my negative feedback on his trust page.

 but again this is a lesson learned , never deal with anybody without escrow.

thanks to everybody for supporting my case and thanks for keeping this forum as safe as possible.


Mikey.

And hopefully him or stingers can provide more information..
I am conflicted about my own rating for him and would like to see this settled one way or the other.. Not sure..

Maybe he should have his red removed? By time I noticed that he, someone I have a + on, had a scam accusation against him, the thread was over with and I think I was under the impression that the situation was resolved with stingers being in the clear for the most part..

Are you going to publicize those reasons

I would also like to see a good explanation and a good conclusion of this subject..

-Snip-
The team was currently flying over to dubai for a lot of meetings, so please give me and them some leeway.

Your escrow has been shit, maybe because the "team" wanted to minimize their exposure to you (because they knew), maybe because you just suck at it, maybe both..
Friday - Didn't bother asking the devs to refill the escrow upholding my obligation as a trusted escrow since I was quite busy irl, so didn't bother.
ftfy
The "escrow" is often sitting underbudget and therefore not protecting participants at all. It's not really even an "escrow", the "team" is just giving you funds to divvy out as needed, not even as needed..
It seems you had about 0.26 in "escrow" for a few days recently but the transactions are such a mess.. Coming from exchange hot wallets and using change addresses - mess..

You should have stuck with the signed escrow address in the OP to keep it TRANSPARENT and simple for all to confirm the campaign is ACTUALLY under escrow, which it is not anyway.. Use a consistent escrow address would ya? You didn't sign any of those other ones did ya? We have no idea who owns outputs to random addresses..
Currently your escrow is negative what, .25 btc? From what I can make of it..

The escrow in the OP is just a ploy to start the campaign and goes right out the window once participants sign up..
Since YOU are the "escrow" if that campaign scams right now it is YOUR fault. Money out of your pocket you owe them because you promised you were protecting the participants from the "team" via escrow.. You have placed that burden upon yourself..
I have mentioned your escrow a couple of times and I think you just don't want to admit that you aren't holding shit anyway..  

"Leeway"? Are you guys running a professional business or just winging it?

"Flying to Dubai" is more important than keeping their word? More important than paying their employees? Plane don't have wifi?
I didn't look into it but, are they really "flying to Dubai"? <things scammers say..
If they are willing to blow their commitment to you, and their employees, off - blow you all off because they are on a plane, do you really think it is a good idea for you to bear the burden of payments for them by being the "escrow" when you have no funds?

No way I would put myself in the position of "escrow" and let it ride with one party not fulfilling their obligation, risk my neck for all those funds..
No way, especially if I didn't have the funds to cover my vouch.
Much less taking out a large loan I couldn't repay and bearing the financial responcibility for some flake "team" flying to dubai, at the same time..

You must be seriously desperate for that job to risk your financial neck to them like that, or more likely risk your name AGAIN and risking the participants financials..  

I'm not incorrect. It did take a lot of planning and talking.
Sure isn't the whole truth now is it? Leaving out the exact details he was getting at weren't ya?
If you didn't want the world to know you should have PM'd him the truth..

It was a lot of months since my last lending applications.

Dude...
You just asked for a 1BTC loan less than a month prior!

Hello Lending Community!

I want to make a quite large purchase IRL and might need a huge amount of funds amount for it. So a couple of questions.

1. Would I qualify for a no collateral loan of 1 BTC for quite a long term? I don't have a lot of reputation, except I'm currently holding around 1.5 BTC in escrow, and have paid out ~ 3 BTC for 2 signature campaigns.
2. Do people accept 4-5 month long loans? My preferred rate is 0.2 BTC repayment per month, for 5 months.

Thanks!

Is BTCT your only form of income?
You are already asking for quite sizable loans out of "desperation".. That is really last resort stuff..

What if they would have given your zapo the loan AND THEN you got uncovered like you have, which would have decreased your ability to repay the loan?
What if your signature campaign jobs didn't work out? What was your plan for repayment? Throw another account away..

Hello Lending Community!
I want to make a quite large purchase IRL and might need a huge amount of funds amount for it. So a couple of questions.

A month ago you were confident enough to just make a huge purchase.. Asking for that full 1 BTC loan..
Next loan..
I'll be converting the BTC into USD for the purpose of paying bills and making purchases, but I will be paid a set BTC amount by my employers, so this is why I'm asking for this loan tied to BTC.

I'm more than happy to re-negotiate loan terms, making everyone happy.
Negotiate HIGHER than 33.333% interest?
Then you are going to pay bills and buy things.. Not very sustainable.. Very confident in your income from "employers" and ability to repay the loan..  

And now..
half me sort of desperate.

Are you desperate to buy things like some Black Friday wackjob consumer addict?
You didn't tell those lenders you were desperate did you?
That was all you just being some actor.. Some anon alias, playing the part..
You admit misrepresenting a lot in your lending applications..

Are you desperate for money to survive? Are you confident enough in your financials to spend 1BTC on a large purchase on credit? Are you that desperate to buy things?
Choose one..  

What are you going to do when you get even more desperate?
Which is likely.. You really are willing to skate on thin ice wanting a large loan to buy things while holding a negative balance "escrow"..


I ran a lending buisness
not knowing how high-interest rates are on bitcointalk


These RECENT ACTIONS are plenty for me, regardless of old Atriz drama with snakey or other, that "Kevin" is not a highly trustworthy individual..
Not to say that I think he is going to exit scam a campaign, a large loan, or both.. But his word is no good..
A person's WORD to me is more important than "have held large funds"..

The last person you should lie to, or misrepresent facts to (at best), are potential creditors.. IMO


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Lets dig into this part..

Hi Bitcointalk, I'm looking for a loan with these terms,
I found the public has access only to the following address where you held fund:
https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/17wW3y8HgcRACw6e8wjB5bkuc1CFJzvRQM
https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/14cJEUeGm157ok88ouskfDGwbSmzf2Kgcr
Total 1.76BTC
Hi zazarb,
I didn't bother with changing the escrow address weekly, because of the wallet I use changes addresses everytime I send a TXID. For example, here is a TXID thats not from an address listed in the OP.

Both addresses zazarb quotes held some funds from 8-8 until 8-16 and 8-18..
Which convienently coorelates with the openings of both campaigns BQT and IOU..
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4845370
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4862272.0

Like I said earlier, just a PLOY to start the campaigns and then the "escrow" goes right out the window..
They are also what he uses as reference for being so trusted.. "I held those funds I'm super trusty"

BUT, zapo's reply with...
Shit multi TX from a hot wallet for 1, he should have linked to https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/address/1AKwj14zZfGPcbXkJE7iVF8hLctrMjRhJF ..
It only held funds for 14 hours, which is NOT "escrow"..

STOP calling it "escrow", it is merely fund distribution..  Unless you are guaranteeing payment out of your own pocket, which you can't afford, and then it's still not "escrow", but a guarantee vouch..

"Topped up weekly" - lol        Didn't bother.. Should yeah if it was really an escrow, but it's not..
The signed messages are not even proof that zapo held those funds.. It is not an old known address of his..

Just as he was "forced" to continue a scam campaign because he had 2 weeks invested in it, now he is "forced" to continue as a fraudulent "escrow"..

I would tell the "team" to fulfill their escrow obligations as promised or fuck right off, but I'm not desperate to make money from Bitcointalk, and who knows what the agreement really is between zapo and the "team"..

So many defending him as a "great" campaign manager..
"Great" campaign manager that will continue to run a campaign as normal knowing that it lies to it's participants and investors, forced because he has a whole 2 weeks invested in it..

Looks like he isn't even holding FULL escrow to protect all the participants..
I haven't asked for a refill of escrow funds from the ICO team.
Friday - Didn't bother asking the devs to refill the escrow since I was quite busy irl, so didn't bother.
Hi everyone, didn't anticipate using this much funds so I've only been able to pay out the first batch, the rest of the heros will have to take a while, messaging devs right now
Hi guys, the escrow was only at ~0.5 BTC, so I wasn't able to make all the payments needed.

Late on payments because he doesn't have the money on hand, the point of escrow.. So much coin he has been holding  Roll Eyes  So trusts
If he is holding coin, why didn't he respond about putting it into an escrow? Just ignored..

Lies to the lender zazarb in his loan application, deleted the OP.. Very untrustworthy, like lying to the bank..
Doesn't seem like zazarb wants to fill the loan now that loyce corrected his lie about..
I wonder how  advertisers trust to you(a whole newbie without history)
I guess, a stroke of luck, a lot of planning and talking landed me this job.
And then..
I would be interested to know if you disclosed this information to the teams behind BQT and IOU before beginning work as their campaign manager.
They know.


People get ruined for less so why all this "second chances"?
Because he can manage a campaign? Any offshore tech support guy can manage a campaign..

Sympathy for him because he was "anti spam" and promoted merits, required merit for his campaign, has favor with the spam police..


The higher interest offered was half not knowing how high-interest rates are on bitcointalk, and half me sort of desperate.
Taking out a high interest no collateral loan out of desperation is a GREAT idea..

Loan Amount: 7.5 ETH
Reason:  Trading
ETH Address:     
I would like 0.5 ETH sent here - 0xad81B4033A8B9174a764c736d7F3b14f9b72D5DB
Then the remaining 7 eth here - 0x730dFd99d58D7942DECAE061aB76daf48dAf9510
Term Length: 1 Month Max
Collateral:: None
Interest:: 13%

That's reasonable interest..

This guy wants atriz specifically to hold lending collateral for him
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3178600.msg32953287#msg32953287
But he is inexperienced in lending remember..

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1596878.msg32052237#msg32052237
Another loan with a reasonable interest term..

Fuck he groups them for me..

"Small loans for trust"

Open Loan with aTriz (0.5 BTC loaned)
Need 0.35 BTC Loan, payback 14 days max (0.35 BTC loaned)
Need Loan of 0.4 for trading. Payback 1.5 months MAX (0.4 BTC loaned)
Need Loan of 0.25 for trading. Payback 3 weeks MAX (3 day re-payment possible) (0.25 BTC loaned)

All of these loans where done with no collateral and resolved. They aren't small either. Most of these range from 5,000 - 10,000 USD.

If you did a quick search in the lending subforum, you would do this.

He is an experienced lender/lendee..

The higher interest offered was half not knowing how high-interest rates are on bitcointalk

Or not?

In need of a 0.35 loan.
Payback in 14 days max, but if things go smoothly, should be paid within 1 week time.
Repayment would be 0.3575 if paid within a week and 0.36 if paid in 2 weeks
No Collateral.

Look at that low requested interest..

Hi Bitcointalk, I'm looking for a loan with these terms,

1. Loan amount: 0.3 BTC
2. Reason for the loan: Personal
3. Repayment amount: 0.4 BTC
4. Repayment date (GMT timezone):2 months
5. Collateral:None

As for trustworthy factors, I've paid out ~3 BTC in campaigns and held up to 2 BTC at once.

Thank you!

I found the public has access only to the following address where you held fund:

https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/17wW3y8HgcRACw6e8wjB5bkuc1CFJzvRQM
https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/14cJEUeGm157ok88ouskfDGwbSmzf2Kgcr

Total 1.76BTC

This is  also a large amount, and I wonder how advertisers trust to you(a whole newbie without history) such amount.
So if you want borrow, I would advise you , ask your employer at least vouch for you.
Hi zazarb,

I didn't bother with changing the escrow address weekly, because of the wallet I use changes addresses everytime I send a TXID. For example, here is a TXID thats not from an address listed in the OP.

Quick update!

Was refilled by devs via https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/tx/13900245d8b37c3b5177647e808b65eb2cd9bff69919d4380b9d8c5946c064ad

Sorry for the delay, Eddie was flying to Dubai for a meeting with some investors.

Payments will be made within an hour! Thanks for your patience.

I guess, a stroke of luck, a lot of planning and talking landed me this job. I would get my employer to vouch for me, but he isn't on Bitcointalk, and is quite busy with investor meetings regarding their ICO.

Thank you for your input!



Also - He was asking to borrow 0.3 BTC and repay 0.4 BTC..
That is a whole 33.333% interest! Quite high interest..
That's $650 in interest he is offering to pay.. Ouch..

It is somewhat the mark of a loan scammer to offer such high interest, so people are more greedy to fund the loan for them, put up with more risk for that profit, and the scammer isn't planning on paying back so they don't care what the interest is anyway.. Make the lenders rush to fill it, make them make hasty decisions..

Suspicious..

As for the 0.3 BTC loan I requested, I was actually going to pay that back, as too many people’s surprises.  

Why did you offer such high interest?
It might as well be a doubler..
1514  Economy / Reputation / Re: Confession - Zapo=aTriz. on: October 04, 2018, 10:39:52 PM
Since the account is already tagged and they're running two signature campaigns which I believe are self-escrowed, has anybody given a thought that they might just run away with the escrow money and still have nothing to lose? I mean they have shown the tendency to come back again with new accounts.

Living up to the motto in his personal text - "stay dangerous" ..

Might it not be out of the question to ask him kindly to put those funds into the hands of a trusted escrow?
Since he plans to be so honest and whatever from now on right? Like he says..
That would possibly be a nice show of good faith..
If they exist as you say..

the new type of "purchasable rank" aka Copper Membership has been introduced. Wonder if that helps the forum's finances or not.

From what I understand the forum has plenty of money BTC and is not motivated by making more money..
The money from copper purchases helps sure, but the amount it insignificant..

The charge for copper is a speedbump for scammers, not a revenue stream scheme.. Same with evil..

I do know that Jet Cash got a positive trust rating from Vod when vod had a higher trust rating so he got a 5 next to his trust score, I, however, got a 2

Jet Cash - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=698159
He got his + from DT in March. Since then 7 months have passed..
He has 1 + trust for 7 months = 7 light green trust..

jackg - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=543626
You got 1 + from DT on 07-23 and since then 2 full months have passed..
1 + for 2 months = 2 black

Each + trust from DT raises your trust score + 1 for every month it has been there, up to 10 months for a max of 10 per + trust..

If you jackg and Jet Cash keep your + tag and don't get any more + tags, after the 10 months have passed you will both have a green 10 trust score, maxed out for 1 + rating..

For example, mine...
I have 3 + tags from DT.. 2 of them are greater than 10 months old and my newest is 8 months old so 10+10+8=28... Next month it will be 29 and the next month it will reach 30 and stop increasing from there because all of the ratings have maxed out at 10, if my ratings stay the same..

I don't remember about when it turns from black - to light green - to dark green, but it does with a higher # and/or time..
All DT tags are equal, it doesn't matter how high the tagger's score is or was, just that they are DT, left a tag, and the amount of months since then have passed..
Tags YOU leave appear as DT to YOU (because you trust your own ratings by default)..
Untrusted (not-DT) ratings have no effect on the calculation..

Ratings grow in weight from 1 to 10, then stay at 10 forever. (If the rated person has no negatives.)
Code:
if there are no negative ratings
score = 0
for each rating, oldest to newest
if this rater has already been counted
continue
score += min(10, round_up(months since rating))
else
score = unique_positive - 2^(unique_negative)
if score >= 0
start_time = time of first negative
score = unique_positive since start_time - unique_negative since start_time
if(score < 0)
return ??? (orange)

move score to range [-9999,9999]
return score


If they were to remove mexxer from DT all of his tags would turn into untrusted feedback and no longer effect their trust score calculations..
So if an account was scammer tagged by mexxer, only mexxer, and they remove mexxer from DT, the negative trust on their accounts will be wiped clear from the calculation and they will be back to 0 black trust (in the absence of any other DT tags on them)..
It will wipe out all of his feedback from everyones score calculations, positive or negative..

He was last online October 1, 2018. The negative feedback was from July 2017. Check before post.

Oops..

Looked at the wrong column.. Thanks for correcting me Wink

OP probably stands to gain from his red tags being shifted to untrusted feedback..
Not knowing the circumstances he may not deserve the privilege of being on DT2 but I don't think all of his tags should be nullified and just let all those scammers/spammers go scot free..
