So I bet on this a week or so ago, and it hit $200 today but the bet is still unsettled.

I was a bit confused, so I just bet on it again, and it let me place the bet?

I thought if the bet was settled before the deadline, then bets would be closed, can anyone enlighten me?

I thought that but according to the bet statement:

"Statement for betting: "The Mt Gox trade price of bitcoin will reach or exceed $200.00 prior to May 1st 2013"

Sounds like you won to me, it said nothing about staying above either, just that it had to cross the line in time.

Aaah the bettings closed now, and the bet I placed just now looks like it's been refunded, so it's all good.
Just put another bet on $350 before May 1st, GOOO BITCOIN!!

Bitcoin will reach $200 by May 1st 2013

The price will be checked on Mt Gox and bitcoincharts.com to verify whether this has occurred.

Editor's note: Threshold passed.

Where the fuck is it stipulated anywhere what the symbol $ represents? There is no motherfuckin' why that it can be viewed upon as the US dollar, given that a myriad of other countries use the same symbol, of which citizens of those countries all participate on their site.

The $ symbol is not even stipulated anywhere on their site as to what country it should be pegged to, and shouldn't be taken for granted that it's of the US dollar.

I'm sure I can hunt down at least one country that uses the $ symbol in their currency that would make this bet null and void, thus a push.

This bet is more ambiguous than the BFL April bet.

Sadly, there's a little truth to your assessment, and with that, I apologize.

Later, bud.

Sorry, it's just I haven't seen any post from you that doesn't involve at least one instance of "fuck" or "fucking" in recent times.  Glad to hear that is not the case.

Given the circumstances being a bit angry is entirely understandable.
