[sarcasm]Well, no-one saw that coming.[/sarcasm]

So, only a matter of time now before Matthew loses his bet? Or does he pay out now given pirate's announcement?

I wonder in reality has sunk in for Matt.  He put his rep and $100K on the line for a complete douche ponzi scammer.

He didn't say he wouldn't pay. If we just wait, he might be able to pay in a couple weeks, right?

Is Matthew's bet contingent on the default or no one being paid back in x amount of time?

Not picking a side, just saying if he allocated a set point it is only fair we give him until that point. Matthew that is, of course.


heyyyyyy, mine is much more funner to bob your head to while wathcing your riches evaporate...

*smiles at Joel*  Did you intend that reply for me?    Eitther way, I concure with your parenthesized declarations.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

As I recall, the bet was that Pirate would payout as he had promised. A post-default payout is completely different from what he promised and vastly inferior to it. There might be some wiggle room there that will require a close reading of the terms of the bet and the post referenced in it. (For the record, this ambiguity is one of the main reasons I didn't take Matthew's bet. Well, that and the whole thing about not betting money you can't afford to lose.)

We'll have to work this all out once we know exactly what winds up happening.

This is bloody hilarious.... Poor guy that is being called probably 20+ times a day

I dunno they sounded pretty clueless about everything and I had to explain things to them - plus their questions were more like the stuff I get when I tell family members or co-workers about Bitcoin. More of a complete lack of understanding. Luckily they knew what the internet was and seemed to have some understanding of trading.

And the fact that he still hasn't proven he even has the money...

I wasn't saying "Matt pay up".  I don't remember the exact terms of the bet but IIRC it was something like Pirate would pay in full within 3 weeks (Matt added an extra week).  I think the odds of that are now very low.  Most investors suckers are now looking to get something back.  Nobody is even entertaining the idea of being paid in full (3 weeks or 300 weeks it doesn't really matter).

BTW I never took Matt's bet mainly because the bet lacked any escrow.  No sense in betting on a counter-party failing and then taking on more counter-party risk.

Last post from Matthew on his bet thread.

Quote
Thank you everyone for showing a huge amount of integrity to bet for your beliefs instead of just arguing, defaming, accusing, aggravating, etc. Many of you truly believe Pirate is a ponzi, many of you are simply utilizing my offer for hedging, and still others are simply happy to take a 50/50 chance bet on anything. Regardless, we are at the 10,000BTC mark and thus I am locking the thread so that no more bets can be received here.

I still believe there is a very high chance that Pirate is just doing a business which we don't understand, and my sinking gut, although questioning his lack of professionalism, lateness, etc, reminds me that no one is perfect and it may all just be a series of bad coincidences. I hope I am right and that I am able to prove to the community once and for all that what we don't understand is not always a scam. If I happen to be wrong, I'm happy to have enjoyed this entertaining time with everyone, and I've actually made quite a lot of new friends (as you can imagine).

The original OP states that the bet ends 3 weeks after August 19, 2012, 04:49:20 PM, so that means it ends on September 9th, 2012, 04:49:20 PM KST (Korean Standard Time, local to me). I think I had mentioned a slightly longer deadline elsewhere on IRC out of confusion (September 12th perhaps?), but this is incorrect as you can clearly see. The bet will also end if Pirate has provided proof of paying back all (not 99.9%) of his obligated debts and interests per agreements, whichever comes first.

Good luck to everyone and thank you for participating in this monumental lesson for all of us.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101751.msg1128484#msg1128484

Bold is mine.  There is no wiggle room.  Either Pirate pays back 100% with interest by the Sept. 9th or he loses.  Simple as that.

Pirate has defaulted twice.  This isn't looking good for Matt.

Well, this is great news for Bitcoin. Many incompetent, greedy, lazy, useless hypocrites will pack their bags and leave. So long, suckers!

And oh, if you did give your money to some anonymous guy on the internet hoping you'll get rich fast, no questions asked, but don't feel like you belong to any of the categories above, then you have no reason whatsoever to feel offended by this post.

the google doc title is now " betting is closed. Check back on Sept 9th for result"

I would like to see the earlier title "<this spreadsheet is for all of you fools who want to give me money>" Something like that. I am unable to access revision history on the google doc, but maybe someone saved the earlier version.
