Whoever proposed this bet:

Quote
ASICMiner is currently the world's largest bitcoin mining operation. Their hashrate is public and can be seen here.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkPdXsQFT-vIdHRVUjQ5Ql9BQWR6OENLMkhyUktUblE#gid=0

The bet closes yes if their public hashrate exceeds 50 Terrahashes/second before June 1st.

Had a good idea but executed poorly. Basically as stated this is a bet on the contents of a webpage, might as well be something like:

Quote
pastebin.com/blabla says "42"

Is there some way to reconstruct this bet based on objective, verifiable criteria?

yes, contact friedcat and ask exactly what hashes he is responsible for, if he is impartial in the bet.

Pseudonymous Bitcoin, remember?

She's saying that you couldn't prove Friedcat is Friedcat.

No, I am saying that the biggest problem of Bitcoin is still unresolved (and the 100+ BTC in bounties still unawarded or even vaguely claimed). In other words, you could never know if Friedcat is betting or not, and so the "if impartial" rider sinks the whole proposal.
