I do know that there's some automated requests querying the price of the gem. But I doubt that there are bots actually buying the gem.
Maybe some people have a form autofill plugin or something similar.

Someone suggested making a single "Buy" button and showing the form after clicking this button, I guess that would be a good idea.

It looks like you changed the game to start at 0.5 BTC instead of 0.1 BTC. Actually, it looks like you changed it from 0.1 to 0.25 and now 0.5. Care to comment on why?

Gamble on the gem now starts at around $50? I reset the gem twice somehow when it was supposedly a 3% chance. Once for 0.85 BTC, and once for 0.64 BTC. Now your game just looks like a race to lose a bunch of money, and the race is even shorter than it used to be with the new higher cost to start.

Now I mostly feel bad for the people I see lose their stake after the gem gets high enough that new buyers are scared off.

Start price will be lowered again. Just trying out different settings to see how they are doing.

The higher starting price the more income site owner has. Because you have to buy from him your first item. Also, more random resets, more profit especially if starting price is high. Thats why i removed random resets from my game because if they are not often (like they should) then they could not exists at all, and it should not be noticable in game. It simplifies game rules too and makes everything more clear.

Actually i think the random die is the most profitable way, as stated above. And just like the owner of a chain game above. My solution is have the last owner to gain profit share over the new chain and everyone will get something back at least.

Some one just tried to buy the gem but sent 4.0135 BTC instead of 4.13 BTC.
This was refunded: https://blockchain.info/tx/37bd7d76249ebcc4e31d1c291440bf11c0e56d107dd92930459aa7b569045839

The timer is always on 86400 seconds and it seems it just reset, this happens automatically

I think the buy button would indeed be a good idea. Thats also interesting about automated queries.

A facebook page has been created for the site, and I encourage all to look to the page for updates on the site.

We also have a twitter that has live updates of the bitcoin gem prices.

Thanks all for playing, we are seeing great traffic and are looking forward to sharing future projects.
