It was a lot of fun at the time, although I wasn't very active in it. It would be great to have this again with Bitcoins. I work full-time though (software engineer), so even if I made it, I don't know if I could administrate it.


Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Supposedly a forum member is currently in talks with InTrade to see about offering bitcoin as an option, though I'm not sure what those talks have entailed. I agree that a predictions market -- either one of the existing ones allowing use of bitcoin or a new competing one emerging -- would be great
