It takes a few brain cells to realize tha the gem is in demand, and you are going to make a few coins in 6 confirms.

To quote Bruce Wagner, "Up! Up! Up!"

Quote
You can be the next owner of the gem, the current price is 104.83 bitcoins. After your purchase, the gems worth will increase by 10.48 bitcoins.

You will stay the owner of the gem until the next gem lover buys it. He or she will pay 115.31 bitcoins and we will send 110.07 bitcoins back to you. (Yes, that's a 5.24 BTC profit for you!)

Would make an interesting bet at http://betsofbitco.in/: At what price do you think the "Gem" will no longer sell? (aware that that's not how it work, but can be worded some other way).

This is not a PONZI scheme. This is a kind of PYRAMID scheme. There are too many people using the term ponzi scheme that don't really know what a ponzi scheme is.

There are too many people using the term pyramid scheme that don't understand what it is either.  You don't get a portion of anything each time the gem is sold.

This is a ponzi scheme, since it is using new money to pay old debts.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Why would someone buy the site? If the value of the gem was artificially created by you at its genesis, why wouldn't they just create their own version of the site and assign their own value to a gem?

I'm not positive he's out to scam...

He's taken down the ability to purchase the gem while he waits for a buyer.  If his aim was to scam as much as possible, he would have let people continue to buy the gem.
