OP, you might be pissing off the current owner of the gem. I would be quick.

Hello all,

I'm selling the website www.bitcoingem.com. The gem is in a range now where I begin to feel uncomfortable. Some more iterations and we're talking about thousands of bitcoins – this is getting too hot for me.
Anyone who recently was on the site knows what is going on right now, the price for the gem is about to explode and no one knows where it could go.
The site is on halt right now but can be reactivated anytime.

Anyone who's interested, please PM me. Minimum bet is 300 btc. This offering is valid for 2 hours (9 pm central european time), I will sell to the highest bidder.
Should there be no selling I will close the site and refund the last 2 open payments.

I can transfer the site to your webhost and get it up and running within one hour (PHP and MySQL and a decent server needed).
Or better yet, you take over my account at firehost, which won't interrupt the site's service at all.

If there's any questions, just let me know.

This is just like the million dollar web page.  It was interesting the first time, but people aren't going to do it over and over.  The time for profit has come and gone, and you are just trying to squeeze 300btc from some fool.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).
I will ignore your Prayer Messages unless you donate to 1CDyx8AUTiYXS1ThcBU3vy4SJWQq6pdFMH

This is the part in the story where the OP "sells" the site to a sockpuppet. Mr. Puppet suddenly (maybe after a couple days/weeks to make it more "legit) vanishes with the site and coins.  Obviously this isn't the fault of the OP.  He no longer owns/operates the site and will be very upset that it happens but there is nothing he can do about it.

There is no reason for the site operator to be dishonest. As long as the gem continues to change hands, the operator makes more money. The operator gains nothing by "running off" with the money because it is already his. I suppose the only dishonest thing the operator might do would be to have shills buy the gem to inflate the price.

but no guarantee a legitimate person buys it so they're risking something unless they fully trust the other guy

anyway; people know they're buying the 'gem'

My mistake. The operator could not refund the previous buyer and run off with all the money.

most of their purchase went to the previous owner

Anyway, assuming the operator does not steal the money, he makes approximately 55% of the latest price. So, in order for a new owner to buy the site for 300 BTC and break even, the gem would have to reach a value of about 665 BTC (550 + 115)

I changed rules for bitcoingem.com – the site is up and running again.
It's not for sale anymore, you don't have to PM be about that.
Thanks.
