hello all,

I am quite new here, a friend shown me this bitcoin toss thing so i thought i would give it a go, but I am no experiencing a satisfactory service from them. I am wondering if anyone know if they are legit or not.

they said they pay out after full confirmation, but I already have some of my transfer over 120 confirmations and yet they still havn't pay me my winnings...

here is their website:
http://bitcointoss.com/

thanks,

-newbie

Your payout address is correct?  You have the full block chain downloaded in your client?

In your bitcoin client the bottom line should read X connections (where X is greater than 0) 131392 blocks (at this exact moment) Y transactions (for however many transactions you have sent/received)

If your connections is 0 or your blocks are < the current block count, you won't see the transaction yet.

If you have 0 connections try starting it with

bitcoind.exe -addnode 64.22.103.150  -addnode 69.164.218.197 -addnode 178.79.147.99

i have 8 connections and 131392 blocks.

I used them before and received from them, sometimes very fast, only after 2 confirmations, and recently it takes much longer, and now it feels as if they just take your bitcoin away and not pay even tho you have won.

i didnt put too much in just in case its a scam, i only put in like 0.1BTC in to check, but its not very good  Sad

I'm in a gambling mood.  I'll play and report back.

Edit: Hmm.. there website is grinding to a halt.  That could certainly be an issue.

I am not saying its not legit, but recently its behaving so badly my feelings towards it is dying away  Sad

I am just wondering if anyone is also experiencing the same as me, because there is no e-mail contact on that website, just makes it feel more risky.

I can't even play and lose my bitcoins... It is saying my address is not valid.

I'd say their bitcoin daemon died on the server.  All transactions should be queued and process when/if it comes back up.

Well... Apparently Alex Beckenham supported it at one point, but no longer does.

thanks for the info, but what does he mean by supporting? Like supporting a football team? So he was never in charge or something?

If he meant he no longer provide support with anything to do with the site? So in another word, if it screws up and sucks all your bitcoin, no one is responsible? Thus meaning this is no longer safe?

Is my logic correct here?

I'm assuming he ran the site, people tried to scam him on refunds, and he got fed up and basically said player beware.

I don't think it would hurt to message him though.
