Why post such rubbish?
500k was not invested 43 weeks ago. Talk facts, don't stir shit.
LiteCoin if you failed big boy math class you shouldn't correct others. Here I will "show my work" so you can follow along. Please take out a #2 pencil and a new sheet of paper. Around the time of the closing Pirate indicates that there were ~500,000 BTC deposited. Pirate interest obligation is 1% per day until repaid. That would be roughly 5,000 BTC per day on the 500,000 BTC deposited. At the time of my post it was roughly 6 days since the trust had been closed but funds not "yet" repaid. 500,000 * 1% * 6 days = 30,000 additional BTC owed. This evening it will be more like 35,000 BTC. If Pirate paid back a total of 35,000 BTC this week he would still owe 500,000. Given he has so far only paid back 100 BTC (or maybe up to 1,500 BTC) the amount he owes has increased >30,000 since the trust was closed. Another way to look at it is the amount Pirate owes increases by roughly $2,083 every hour or $34.67 per minute or $0.57 per second. Just in the time it took me to write this post Pirate's debt has increased by another $100 or so. Given your poor math skills by the time you actually understand this his debt will have increased by a couple hundred dollars more. Actually, it might be slightly worse, depending on how his agreement with his "lenders" was worded. He might owe compound interest, so on the first day it's 1% interest on 500k BTC, but on the second day it's 1% interest on 505k BTC, which is a bit more than 5k, and so on.

Yeah I am not completely sure if the interest compounds daily or "only" weekly. Given that I based my estimate on the more conservative weekly. Since Pirate advertised it as 7% per week I assume it is weekly. Daily makes it a little worse (1% compounded daily is 7.21% compounded weekly) but it doesn't really matter. The numbers get huge real quick.

yeah but problem is it will end in some weeks because there are not enough bitcoins for 7% per week interest!

Such a genious More seriously, thanks for putting the math here D&T. Anybody thinking there's no problem with pirate right now is in serious denial

If nothing comes back over the next few weeks, they will consider it gone.

If nothing comes back over the next few weeks, they will consider it gone. No one's seriously suggesting that Pirate might pay out at week 42. However, even with his need to move things around Pirate has a huge incentive to pay as many investors as he can as soon as he can to minimize his interest payments. Not only that, but the tiny accounts he's paying receive a lower interest rate. If Pirate has the funds (and intends to pay) it would be in his best interest to settle his largest accounts first. Not only are those the ones most likely to hire lawyers if it all comes crashing down, but they also get the highest interest rate.

Our highest capital is the Confidence we build.

Theoretically you can owe an unlimited number of btc, even more than will ever be in existence, and you still could be able to pay your debt. As long as you have enough backup assets, an some control over the flows, it could be possible...
What you cannot do in such a case is repay ALL your debt at once, but you could start a successful repayment process, because as you start paying, some of the flow of capital you were holding is going to find it's way to the exchanges, in pursuit of realizing a profit. If you're also there, offering the realized profit for other goods, you'll recover some of the bitcoins you just has left, and you can continue the payment process with those same bitcoins...
Now. I'm not saying that pirate will be able to do this. I'm just saying that this is theoretically possible...
