Okay, that post was kind of a trap. But it's a friendly one, I promise...

A few months ago, I stopped mining on BTC Guild. This once powerful pool is now closing (closed). Problem was? I had left almost a whole BTC in there, carelessly, forgetting I hadn't withdrawn it. And hey, at current value, that's almost $250 wasted! No good!

So when I went to the site and found out my last chance to withdraw was Sept 30th, I was furious. I literally threw my mouse across the room. It survived.

I contacted their support email, but no one responded. I still requested my payout through the site, as well as via email...

Low and behold, just after midnight early this morning, they made the payout. I got my .96 BTC back. It wasn't much, but it was enough to annoy anyone, more than likely. My guess is that the payment server is still up, but perhaps paying out once a day? The site itself said once every hour, which is why I initially freaked out.

So... If you were previously mining using BTC Guild, and have any possible funds still in your account, NOW is the time to act. Your funds will be taken if you don't. So for those of you who were living under a rock like I was, go grab your funds while you still can. Who knows how much time is left!? And if I can save anyone's BTC, no matter how small an amount, then it's totally worth the few minutes it took to post this. I just felt the need to post a friendly heads up, because I was ecstatic to have NOT been robbed!

Good luck!

BTC Guild announced that they are closing down months ago, could be more than half a year ago. Where have you been all this time? BTC Guild's owner is one of the most responsible and honest pool admin. There might be delays, he is not going to rob your 1btc. Since you have received your payout, please change the topic title. It is unfair and untrue.

I said they robbed me to provoke people to read this, to hopefully withdraw their BTC in time. The title is intentionally dishonest to attract attention... If you didn't read my actual post.

This was your negligence OP; BTC-Guild been warning people for years they were not a bank and shouldn't be used as a storage service.

Op, if you strongly believe that you are at loss and BtC Guild are to blame for that. Start scam accusation topic in corresponding section of our forum.
Personally I feel they are not to blame, mainly because:

They've been warning. I used btcguild often muh and never had any problem with it. Your coins is your responsibility, not theirs so don't go ecstatic against the btcguild team. They've done their job. Cheesy

Very nice of you for warning. I laughed when I read that your mouse flew through the room and survived  Grin

Looks like a decent company if they finally provided the withdraw.

Alright, maybe the clickbait was a bit spammy. But like I said, if it didn't get anyone's attention, it would defeat the purpose of the threat.

However... What they've been saying for years is irrelevant. I stopped mining there in April or so, if I remember correctly. Since then, I didn't get an email to my inbox, or anything like that. So I don't think it was totally insane to be pissed when I thought they were gone. I just felt like I wasn't worn, and had to suffer the consequences of something I wasn't told.

And yes, if payments continue to be processed even after site closing, this speaks highly of BTC Guild, no doubt. I am personally upset that Eleuthria closing up shop. It's where I started my cryptocurrency journey early last year...

But it does go to show you, do not leave your coins in a pool. Get them in your wallet and lock them down, or whatever you need to do... I almost had to learn this the hard way. Hence this thread, for anyone who's been living under a rock like me. :/

It is spammy and worse you are making a fake claim.  You are saying you were robbed by BTC Guild.  

Anyone who has logged in for past few months should know about what is happening to pool.  It's not a surprise they gave a lot of time, shutting it down very professionally and still are due respect.

You are making false accusations to grab clicks.  The ends don't justify the means.  I suggest changing this to an accurate title, or I predict you get some neg trust.  eleuthria has every right to neg trust you if you don't change this title.

No. Replies maintain the topic from the current opening post. The only time they keep the old topic is if you quote an existing reply that has the original OP title.

No, I meant the replies that have already been posted, so it wouldn't really protect me from being negative trusted, etc, despite changing the title. But lesson learned, I guess.

I have no pity for anybody who tried to use the pool as a long term storage of coins.  So far the pool has given people FOUR MONTHS of time to withdraw, and continues to do so.  Additionally, if you had looked at the pool topic which I continue to bump infrequently, the very last post (2 days before this garbage topic) states that withdrawals were reduced to once every 6 hours.  The pool pays above average transaction fees, and over the last 2 weeks it was occasionally paying a TX fee higher than the amount being withdrawn, since withdrawal fees on amounts under 0.01 were removed completely after the closure.


You got no reply to your email because by the time I looked at your email you had already received your BTC.


EDIT:  And as stated above:  I have ALWAYS and *often* warned people to not leave balances on my pool or any other pool.  They are not wallet services.  BTC Guild took that a step further by eliminating the ability to request precise payouts.  You either got a 0.01 interval via automatic payment or the entire balance.  This was done purposely to eliminate anybody attempting to use the pool as a wallet.

I think you have been very fair to say the least.  I mean I was surprised how long you have given people to withdraw.  If you were a bad person like this topic originally had a topic like you would have closed one day and just stopped.

But you did not do that.  I'm happy OP changed topic from saying he was robbed.  I saw that then read how he got his coin no problem.   Was a waste of a click.
