So the original project that is BitFlowSys has been put on hold.
New larger investors in combination with a lawyer have made it clear that glbse not going to be part of this business for a multiple of reasons.
There will be some refunds issued in intervals,
Sorry mining did not make it and the expansion we needed to support a large service company did not materialize through glbse.
A more detailed post will be out soon.
Sorry for the outcome of this situation, I was hoping for a bit more luck.
Good luck to you all.

What has our contract got to do with these "large investors"?

Why has it taken till now for you to decide GLBSE is unfit for purpose?

I assume you will provide an opportunity for all existing investors to join these "large investors" in this separate project?

Just so we are all clear here ... you are saying none of the funds raised from sales of BitFlowSys shares has been withdrawn from GLBSE?

What has funded bitcoinbux.com?

I didnt read in that quote anything that said I never touched the money.
In-fact the first BTC still went to mining equipment before there was ever a bitcoinbux.com.
This was a mining operation, then we tried to raise funds so you guys could be on board for the service thing but the funds did not materialize.
No 200 btc isnt enough for you guys to be part of this, but it was enough to be part of a mining op. The problem is it didnt work out. 2,000 btc is a more realistic buy-in for the exchange company so i offered 40,000 shares at .05 btc each. They didnt sell.
BitFlowSys didnt work out.
No we wont be offering personal loans to you guys like I did with our long time family friends who put up 10k+ and live in the same place.
The absolute crazy insane part is I am expected to refund you guys at a bigger loss to myself when my mining and my attempt at raising funds failed too.  Whatever though, the community wants to eat cake and have it too.
I feel like just running the rigs and letting everyone split their 1 btc a month in dividends because of the way it is being handled.
The only reason I don't feel guilty for saying that you guys are lucky you are getting paid back is because I have lost significantly more in SEC regulated markets for much less going wrong, LOL try and get a refund from them.
And on the first page of E-Trade, it doesn't blatantly state that "this is in beta and you could lose your shirt. Do not put more in then you are willing to lose."
Im not saying GLBSE wont turn out to be a great staple of the bitcoin community, but I love investing and I have not invested 1 dollar into any company on there, why??? Because it is a extremely risky investment with i'd say a less than 10% chance of any return and the company making it out of their IPO.
BitcoinBux has been funded by numerous people, but to think that 200 btc can operate BitcoinBux is a little naive...
Like I stated before, I will be paying you guys out of my pocket, not out of this company.
I am discussing with nefario how to go about doing this the best way.
It was not right this second that we saw glbse unfit it was infact over a week ago. Our lawyer explained the sec regulations and how this could be remotely construed as raising illicit funds. He suggested we disconnect ourselves from it.
I would like to save face and pay everyone back though, crazy I know.
I dont understand how you guys dont feel any loss though??? Im not even running the mining rig it is so pathetic in profit, wtf do i do with it. I cant issue it as a dividend, if I sell it we get half what we paid.
Suggestions welcome,

AFAIK this share is not for bitcoinbux.com, so that's not whats on the table.

If Owl is not going to continue operations, then the best thing to do is liquidate the assets for the company you have (i.e. the mining equipment)and make a single final dividend payment with the proceeds, then the share could be considered worthless.

In the meantime people can continue to trade in the share, and people can buy or sell for what they think it will eventually be worth.

You may consider selling the rigs to Tawsix of SIN, he may be interseted (don't know).

Another option may be to continue the running of the mining rig, less electricity and operation costs, paying out dividends until the rigs essentailly fail, and then liquidate them.

I would say that it would be a good idea for owl to recall any unsold shares,I'll add that function to the webclient tomorrow, and to cancel any of his market orders to sell.

If these turn out to be the only two ideas then owl might put them to a shareholder vote and let the shareholder decide how to wind things up.

WiseOldOwl ...

Could you please go back and review what you have (or rather haven't) said to the investors, particularly over the last two months. This thread represents the sole method of communication between them and you.

What you are now saying is a significant turn around in both tone and content - almost to the point where I wonder whether the account has been compromised.

You might want to consider the impact on your reputation of what you are saying and doing right now.

Yes this whole thing was for a mining business,
We attempted to IPO for a service business and it did not work out in time.
We are going to be refunding the money.
Everyone here needs to be realistic about this situation.
There have already been people inquiring about the hardware so that is good. Also it's not like I am going anywhere so you are going to actually get your money back for a bitcoin stock investment in mining that originated in JUNE
(end of mining being worth it)
To the few people that invested in the second IPO (entered in at .05 btc per share or more),
You have the right idea and I encourage you to pursue service related investments, I am sorry we couldn't get it even past the 20% stage.
We will liquidate the hardware we have, and obviously refund whatever is in the glbse account. After that, if we are still short I will pay out of pocket. I think this is fair considering the amount of time and effort and money and gas I have put into this. Just to have a ridiculously hot house, an insanely high electric bill, and a low profit margin. The transition to services through this stock failed to keep up with the demand of the company. It is what is known as a failed start-up investment. You simply cannot run services without raising the proper funds, I gave the community the opportunity first but it didnt work out in time. Refunds will be coming soon.

Also If my tone is off it is because I have had a few private emails calling me a scammer after the bazillion transactions I have made good on. A lot of people thought I was just walking away with the money. I am not taking money to be clear. It is being refunded for sure. We are liquidating and going from there.

I am going to assume that my reputation would be enhanced by the nobility of paying a bitcoin stock investment back after mining failed and it didnt get out of it's IPO... I feel like you guys are expecting a lot. Its not like I am mybitcoin.com and i said I would safely guard btc for you and have them for you later and then walk away with them. It was a investment in a IPO, that needs to be reflected on for a second, the amount of loss incurred by me matters too.Again, refunds coming soon.

Anyone who's raised money will tell you, the smaller the investment, the more the hassle.

WiseOldOwl ...

Can you please summarise the finances, expenditure and remaining assets of the company to date ?

Can you please elaborate on the refund schedule ?

For what it is worth, I have placed an ask up for my 629 shares at 0.009 BTC each - meaning a 10% loss on the small amount I could afford to invest.

If you wish to refund me at 90% by buying these back please do so, or if someone else wants to make an easy 10% ...

There isnt much to discuss.
we are talking a small amount of expenditures, finances, and assets.
We lost a significant amount of btc to hardware depreciation, I also turned on the miners to mine solidcoin for now, so i have some of those.
I also have 40 btc to give to nefario.
Nefario is going to handle the refund.
As i get increments of 40-50 btc put aside i will give to him and he will reverse transactions and pay people back.
I will msg him right now with the first 40, and he will reverse the most recent transactions until everyone is paid.

You don't need to sell for a loss unless your desperate, in which case you should most likely not be investing in bitcoin stocks or any stocks really.  The amount of money you are talking about losing is .629 BTC, or roughly 4$, that is pretty good considering what happened.
Anyways, 40 btc will be distributed asap, at nefario's convenience.

Fair enough.

Unfortunately, I think everything Bitcoin is off by around a factor of 10 at the moment ... the Bitcoin userbase, the USD value of BTC, the GLBSE userbase, the number of GLBSE listed companies, the amounts in BTC getting raised from IPOs ... I'm sure they are all correlated and if I knew how ... maybe I am just being too impatience :O)

I will write him a PM and ask what happened. Also, there will be another issuance in the coming weeks.

Nefario was in an accident, spent a couple weeks in the hospital, maybe you should try resending your message.
Wow, Really?

Bumping again. I'm hoping WiseOldOwl will follow up with Nefario on this ASAP. It is a shame this is taking so long to be resolved. Doesn't reflect well on the parties involved.
