It goes something like this:


1. Take preorders for non-existing product.
2. Buy BTC -> goes up, refunds in USD
3.Huh?
4. Profit.

The best thing would be even under the current BTC consensus on scams, that wouldn't qualify, since well you could get a refund couldn't you.
Same process could have been applied to bitpays "USD 510,000", oh and so many other things.

More to come, in the mean time: BUY BUY BUY.  Wink

just make your refund policy sufficiently vague that if someone pays in bitcions, you can either refund them in a "like amount of bitcoins, or USD equivilent to purchase price" ...

bitcoin goes up, refund in $$... Profit
bitcoin goes down, refund in BTC.. no profit, but no loss

That might actually work, because Bitcoin

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update
