There are a lot of red flags waving here, but on the upside he is still here.
With the long waiting time involved it would be easy to stop it and run with the huge amount of BTC that's in there then.
I'm not gonna call it scam yet, but yes be very careful.

What a perfect response, we are not blind and know that our service from the outside looks like 'a scam'. Time will be the proving factor.

It looks like a scam, or a horrible business model.

"Looks like" - We understand this! Such a great idea like ours is still unknown, and the unknown is scary. So of course, it "looks like" a scam. How about all the people who are actually "using it"?

So you're not addressing the fact that taking loans at a crazy interest rate is an awful business model?

What is so crazy about being able to generate BitCoin and paying back 1-9%?

Sorry about sound like an ass, but if I have to explain why taking loans at 1-9% interest PER DAY is a bad idea then you're either a child or mentally deficient.

EDIT:
I'm not sorry.

The fact that you're borrowing money to do it with instead of using your own, and offering ludicrous interest rates to do it? You could get far larger loans with much less interest, except those people would look at your "business plan" and realize it's a classic ponzi scheme.

For the newbies, here's a good thread to read, a (then unknown)ponzi that ran for several months. Notice the similarities in the excuses used by the operators. "I know it looks like a scam but my reputation!".

Review:

I did order a 72h and a 96h package on sunday, both was paid today. The estimated payout announced was about 30% on sunday, the real payout was lower than it's announced now: 11,5% for the 96h and 8,3% for the 72h.

Someone experienced ... Tried to use this service?

Why say it's a scheme ... but until now, only people who show up here say they have received what was right. Has anyone said that has not received anything?

I did not use the service!

Everyone has received their payout, actually, even earlier than expected. That is why no one is coming here saying they "didn't receive a payout", because everyone has.

We have paid out for over 1,200 purchases, and have about 800 current payouts that need to be made.

Because there has been similar in the past and they were long cons.

I don't even doubt that. But that's not the problem, the way this is structured you could run away with all Bitcoins stored any day. Maybe it's not tempting right now, but once there are 1000+ BTC in there...
What we need are more reasons to trust you, not more reasons to trust the payments til now.
