Hello. The game is enjoyable, however there seems to be a glitch. I've requested a small payout yesterday, over 24 hours ago, and it hasn't been processed yet. Is this normal delay?

tutti i prestiti si sono rivelati scam, senza nessuna eccezione.

dite addio ai vostri BTC.

Per ora di quelli che non pensavo fossero scam in partenza, uno solo ha tardato il pagamento, mentre altri due si stanno comportando bene. bisogna vedere se arrivano fino in fondo. Che una piattaforma cosi aperta fosse un ricettacolo per truffatori, tanto più in partenza, è prevedibile e comprensibile... il potenziale è buono secondo me e se da qui si costruisce qualcosa di concreto perdere una decina di BTC si puo benissimo fare (se continua cosi la mia perdita totale sarà inferiore agli 8 BTC).

Penso che sia necessario investire da subito in queste piattaforme perché potrebbero dare buono slancio alla comunità

Ne dubito, ho messo qualche spicciolo in prestiti all'apparenza scam che si son concretizzati come tali, e come volevasi dimostrare non sembra ci sia nessun movimento da parte loro... temo che nonostante il loro "controllo degli utenti" non siano in grado di stabilire che persone sono.

comunque vedremo. è una piattaforma che m'interessa se solo fosse stabile... quindi spero che i 5 BTC investiti in "dodgy deals" diano i loro frutti nel far lavorare la gente di BTCJam.

Spero poi ovviamente che quegli altri prestiti, che considero "validi", non mi diano buca... altrimenti rimango sotto di butto oltre le previsioni xD

Just a quick suggestion for your forum-linking script... it would be nice if every so often your script could go through the forum profiles and check for scammer tags thebitbabe has a scammer tag, and it would be nice to have the forum authentication removed on top of his credibility dropping for a late payment.

I've gathered some site statistics:

25 repaid loans
42 active loans with no late payments
16 loans with late payments

Of this 16 late loans, 9 are from 3 users.
So we have 19% late loans and 12% late users.


We are confident that the site is a great platform for loans but they are loans after all, so precautions must be taken by the investors.

Thanks Tulkas, this is exactly the kind of information I love to see! Smiley

In fact, the statistics on active loans/on-time and late payments is quite intriguing, and I must say paints a much less terrible situation. indeed better than I would have expected.

It would be great to have that kind of site-global stats automatically calculated and live on the site in a future release.

Thanks for your work. Hopefully those numbers do improve because on one point I wholeheartedly agree with you, you are indeed building a great platform.

PS: I do not blame the site for any losses I incur, that should be clear.
309  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Is ASIC's a SCAM? on: October 19, 2012, 12:31:13 PM
I'm not very familiar with ASIC's at all, and maybe for that exact reason I find them suspicious. Is it even physically possible with todays technology to do 4.5GH/s with only 5W power consumption?

Just wondering. I'm not mining.

That's honestly the _least_ of my worries. The whole point of an ASIC is that it's designed exclusively with one task in mind, and when all is said and done it's a fairly "simple" task that simply needs to be done a shedload of times in parallel. With good design and technology, I don't see why that kind of power consumption would seem so low... we really can't compare to CPU and GPU power consumptions... those are both "generic" chips.

BFL may be a scam, everything is possible. I think there is a good 50% chance they actually are honest and will deliver. Whether that's enough to risk investing in them, and how much to invest, is up to you.

I have to add my voice to those showing doubt on the platform.

I do find the idea very good, and the execution (site-wise) well thought out and built.

But after all is said and done, this site is about exactly one thing, loans. A lender will only invest his money if there is some form of guarantee that he will make money, not lose them. I hope your US contact manages to find a good solution quickly, because the website is in its current state nothing more than a good idea that does not really work.

Many investors are loosing rather than gaining, and this is already alienating many of us, from the smaller to the larger, to simply cut our losses.

I hope the site manages to overcome this hurdle, which I appreciate is by no means an easy feat... but at the going rate of failure to repay, we would need to start demanding interest of 30, 40% minimum just to cover for our losses, let alone turn a profit... this would doubtlessly kill the platform outright.

As far as private loans go, I agree there is really no point in implementing such a feature. The great strength of BTCJam is its social nature and the transparency that can be built into it. Private loans are probably best managed... well, in private amongst all interested parties.

3 of the people that have to pay a loan to me are late (payment is for yesterday 10/16): how can I/we enforce the settlement?

I second the request... I (so far) have one delinquent borrower who has skipped three payment terms (and will probably face more as time goes on), and I was wondering what communication and service you intend to provide on the matter.

I am aware that you are looking into debt collection agencies and rules, but for the time being, what are your plans on the matter of non-payers?

Come-from-Beyond, the great thing is that it's actually less difficult than one thinks to conduct experiments in this field... JREF, CICAP and many other "skeptics" organisations do a rather good job ad doing just that. I think you'd love some of their work

As far as people believing in this crap... billions are spent every ear on snake oil (omeopathy) and the like, so yeah... people do belive in this and continued effeort to "study" or "proove" this fenomena is dangerous and damaging to the weaker links in society.

well, ATS is... a peculiar place... so the story may be true as much as it may be a complete fabrication. Frankly, I'd expect most "shills" to be homebased, for instance, but you never know. This said, it doesn't take an insider's confession to know that there are people on the internet (and, hint, in real life too) who bring fotrh not their, but their master's agendas. Nothing new or shocking, as Richy_T said it would be shocking if nobody was doing this.

Does it really matter? meh.
so many people on the internet would be bored to death without them ^^

Thanks! this is a very useful feature! Smiley

Now to the actual business... when (i.e. how long after payment was due) do you start considering a "late payer" a case you wish to review?

Everybody is free to donate to whomever they wish to donate, however I'd rather donate to people trying to educate against irrationality than this kind of "research". (which in fact I have done in the past)

they do not, unfortunately, support Bitcoin, but they are a very important organization whose aim is noble.

Either way, good luck in your endeavor.

squall1066, you must be from the UK am I right?

essentially what happened is that Google lost a trademark dispute over gmail in the UK (and IIRC Germany), whereby they are not allowed to provide the service under that name. For that reason UK users have an domain, but there is no practical difference as both addresses ought to work for you. you can quickly test this by mailing yourself.

First payment received  Grin, and first payment defaulted Angry

When a borrower defaults on a payment does the site allow him time to repay later? If so, for how long?
Also, does the site keep track of the last time a user visited the site?

Now, the default is only of 24 hours so I'm hopeful Roll Eyes that he'll pay up soon, but at the same time I was wondering if the site gives borrowers a facility to post announcements/messages regarding the statu so of his belated payment explaining why he is late and when he expects to be able to cover his debt.

Are there penalties involved with repaying late(er than a certain ammount of time after the deadline)?

I do have to add that i'm a bit disappointed that received payments disappear of the list... would be nice to have a "Past payments to you" list as well.

PS, just browing another listing from the user that defaulted to check, there is no immediate visible tag/notice that a user is late on paying another active loan. You will find out when following the links to existing loans, however it would be nice if under reputation we could have some sort of red tag (e.g. overdue paiments pending or something on those line).
320  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [ANN] BTCJam - Peer to Peer Bitcoin Lending on: October 09, 2012, 01:14:35 PM
A feature I'm really missing from the site which I hope you can provide at some point would be that of having a facility for extracting structured data from the site.

Of particular interest to me, a CSV file detailing the same data as per the "next payments" listing would be very useful.
