I don't believe Matthew had malicious intent to defraud anybody when he started his "bet". Probably he just became is a victim of himself. It was stupid to do what he did, and probably it caused unintended (and unprovable) harm to some forum users.

I'd like to ask people (who identify themselves as victims of fraud) to take away their greed and offence and to recognize the fact that probably he just won't be able to pay in full. You wouldn't want him to sell his organs, would you?

I propose the following solution for this situation:

1. Victims claim a fraction of real losses, that their consciousness consider proportional to his guilt (he shouldn't pay for others' greed and stupidity). Matthew creates a list of payment recipients (weighted by their claimed amounts) and publishes it.

2. Time to time Matthew sends any amount to some trusted Treasurer's address thus proving his intents to pay off. Treasurer redistributes money among victims with respect to their weights in the list.

3. Community monitors Treasurer's address and sees if Matthew makes regular payments and how large those payments are.

Who knows, maybe sooner or later Matthew will pay for his sins. I think he deserves a chance to prove public his intents and to rehabilitate himself.

I just want to remind everyone that this is an internet forum, one with very little relevance to the real world.

Lol.

Has anyone involved in this bet actually been paid anything?  So far I've yet to see someone actually say so.

I'm guessing he won't pay everyone. I'll bet 100 million billion trillion Bitcoins. Any takers?

I'm sorry, I just realized that was confusing. When I said "bitcoiners", I meant the user "bitcoiners", not every bitcoiner in general. We have since exchanged messages.

For an update on who has been paid and whom hasn't (everyone loves deadbeat drama!), go ahead and scootch on over to here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=140654

It's kept up to date by Theymos and JohntheDong. If someone is paid, it shows up there. If they're about to be paid, they'll get a PM. If they're not about to be paid, I'll probably be the one getting the PM, to which a canned response will be given because PMs don't change financial situations!  Wink

How is the list ordered? How do you decide who gets paid next?

That list isn't ordered in any particular way other than "paid" and "not paid". The real list is organized by settlement value. The people who demanded larger settlements wait longer (and will surely need to renegotiate if the price of coins continues to rise every bloody week).

Still didn't make it on the list...

There are 18 people ahead of you. Agreeing on a settlement value doesn't mean you get paid that afternoon unless stated as so. I appreciate your patience just the same.
