BitCatch - an automated bitcoin pyramid game.

Round #7 starts next friday, round #4 is still running with the jackpot about 7 BTC, check it at bitcat.ch!!!


This Friday Bitcatch is gonna rock again, new round starts July 22 at  20:00 (8pm) UTC ends at Sunday at 20:00 (8pm) UTC. New round starts with ratio 1.2 and 5% from each bet will go to the jackpot. The jackpot will be send to address with largest total value of bitcoins deposited in second day of the game, this means the more you bet in the second day then higher you chances to win jackpot. The site will show live stats and you'll be to able see who might win jackpot and make your bets based on that info.

In order to win the jackpot in a second day you better use one receiving address for all your bets, because summation will be made by addresses, i.e if you will use several receiving addresses then they will appear as... several receiving addresses? each one with different sum of bitcoins.

Rules may change slightly before Friday.




Original post:
_____________________________________________________________________
What differs BitCatch from others? First off all it is fully automated game, this means that all payments and game mechanics processed without operator.
Also, it allows you to use any kind of Bitcoin clients to send the payments, you can even send payments from exchanges and pools. To play the game just enter  your address for receiving payouts and it will generate one-off bitcoin address that you should use to send money to. If there is enough money in the pot you will be immediately paid out with your Bitcoins

So, in short, the main features are:
  • Fully automated game logic and payouts
  • You can send BTCs from whatever you want,
    even directly from exchanges and pools
  • Multiple rounds with different ratio


Check it now! BitCat.ch

What happens to the remaining pot at the end of the round?  What if there is only 1 player, in a whole round?

I've implemented it in a way that what happens with pot can differ from round to round depending on a round type, there could be 'last looser' rounds, rounds when pot evenly divided among the players. You could also suggest another way of what should be done with pot.
The first round is 'last looser', all remaining pot goes to the player who made last deposit (Added this to fisrt post).
If there is only one player then he will receive his money back of course.

Perhaps the creator could add a bet limit? ... someone could bet a lot of BTC and slow/stop the game.

Other than that, it's quite fun!



Yes, when the first round close, there will be several different rounds running at the same time, each round with different ratio/limits.

I think 2 would be more then enough for now, if you put too many, there wouldn't be enough people to keep all the games going.

By the way, if you're playing BitCatch, be sure to put it on your sig.
This will keep new people coming in which will keep the game alive.

It falls apart when no new "bets" are placed, just like any other pyramid game.  As long as new bets come in, older bets get paid.  No new bets = collapse.

What I like about this implementation is the low ratio - 1.2x as opposed to 2x or 3x, like the other pyramid games have.  That makes it easier for people to get paid, and contributes to the chances of it running for a long time.

I don't see any reason that this game can't continue for a long time.  It may speed up or slow down, but as long as people keep playing, it will be fine.

The operator has an incentive to be open, honest and transparent in his dealings.  I assume once it's out of "alpha" on July 5th, he'll start to take a % as a fee.  So it's all volume for him then. The more people play, and the longer it runs, the more BTC he makes.

XYU: having an issue.  I sent you a PM

I think I'm having an issue too...

I had a transaction for 1.0000111 (plus the .0005 fee I paid) that I sent to the game at 143fUhTKJWJP3cZxS3zdZitAmeEyRSGn2u but it isn't showing up on bitcat.ch (unless I am confused, but I'm not seeing it). I have 5 confirmations on my client.

I had one that showed up in the "unconfirmed" but never in the confirmed.  MtRev did, too.

He did say this was "Alpha", so as long he makes good on his bug, all is forgiven from me.  I'm not playing again until he does, tho.  sucks, I was looking forward to playing all day today.  Smiley

I had 2 go through earlier, got paid, no problems.

I also had 1 btc in there before this last crash.  Not sure if you're refunding from this last problem.  Not sure which address in my wallet to show you.

My problem wasn't from the crash. I just made a mistake when I entered. And there were a lot more entries than these names listed. They're all probably individual problems

I contacted him when I MADE THE MISTAKE and he just refunded my BTC. Great guy Smiley

Thank you so much XYU

Ok cool, yes that says alot about this guy.

It is correct, do the math.
if you sum all value in Deposit row and sum all value that have been Paided in Expected row+1 you will see that Expected is higher than Deposit. That means the game is running correctly

Looks correct. The 6 btc went towards paying off the earlier people, there's that much of a btc gap now. Add up every deposit, then subtract all the people paid so far and you will have less BTC than required to pay off the next person.

I'm sorry, but i'm really confused, unless the rules changed from yesterday, he should had been paid already along with many of the other people.

There more then enough to fill up the spots for the people above to get paid at 1.2 ratio.

Also, noticed no one got paid since the crash yesterday, shouldn't someone had to been paid by now? There clearly more then enough people going in.

Feel free to double check my numbers, but the current amount in the pot is .77 BTC, not enough to pay them off. Here is the spreadsheet I used: https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?hl=en_US&hl=en_US&key=tkKD-oDIC-y_GyvE88V4Giw#gid=0

Also, I was paid since yesterday, and several more were right after the 6 BTC was deposited.

Yes, everyone got paid YESTERDAY before the crash, but after the site back up, no one got paid since.  Yesterday, everyone was live and automated, there wasn't more then a 5 min delay. The whole day today, no one got paid.

EDIT -- i please ignore I was wrong

You would be correct if that was the start of the game. However, the game has been running, and as such there has been more and more of a gap growing. Try doing the math one deposit at a time and you'll see.

And no, I was paid this morning, long after the site went up. I was paid off by the person that deposited the 6 BTC.


Edit: Think of it this way, when the first person with the 1.0BTC deposited their money, they were not the next in line to get paid, correct? There were people behind him that had yet to receive payment due to the game running so long. That means the 2.0 BTC went towards paying off the people before him.

Yes, probably at 18 (6 PM) in UTC, but  I'm not sure yet, could you suggest a better time?

I also want to know what ratio to choose for the next round? Keep the same - 1.2? Raise the ratio? Maybe make it even lower - smth like 1.1?

How is this a pyramid?

You send in your money, people send in money after in order to pay you back plus the 20% extra. That 20% extra begins adding up over time, meaning it takes longer for someone to get paid out. Eventually some people will not get paid back because the game ends. This is the type of thing Bernie Madoff did, except he scammed people into it without telling them what was going on.

As far as gambling goes, this one in particular is quite good. I've doubled my money on the first round by putting money in several times. You can still lose, but over half of the players are winners with 20%.

Ok, I'm going to start new round, with low fee and limits, but to keep game more interesting I'm planing to make limits progressive i.e.
game starts with lower bound of 0.01 BTC and upper bound of 0.5 BTC and eventually upper limit would rise to 1, then to 1.5 and at the end to 2 or 3 BTC. If you send more than max value, your money will be returned.

I think so, but bank isn't so high - 0.324193412 BTC (as you can see payments stopped at the player with address 1P3CRorMdGzj4wvVUHj2EndaHbvN971HzV and bet 0.4)

In a couple of minutes, may be 10 or so.

And don't forget, new round will have bounds:
lower bound 0.01 btc
upper bound 0.5 btc

Upper bound will eventually rise

It seem like I'have found bug - I use bitcoin-python library and by default it lists only 10 last transactions, so, some transactions weren't processed... Working on this issue.

Shouldn't it have rounds that end? According the website, this current game won't ever end. Maybe not 5 day periods, but this way it'll eventually just shut down.

Within a little while, the gap between the paid and the waiting will become too big as it does with all pyramid schemes and the site will crawl to a standstill, which is kind of a shame considering the work that's been put into it.

Am I missing something?

You can just buy with different addresses as many times as you want, its the same thing as doing it all at once. The only different is you paying the 0.0005 transaction fee which is so small it doesn't even matter.

By the way, to keep this game active and growing, you can put a link on your sig and start replying back to other threads/topics. This will attract new faces which will only snowball if they put it on their sig as well. =]

Well, guys have fun and good luck, I got to get ready for work, see you guys in a few hours!

Haha, thank you!

Yes, the site owner planned on having multi games running at different rates, but It seems like he been working on day and now went to bed. I'm sure he will have more games running in a day or two.

RE: getting paid

I see a few people might be unclear on exactly how this works.

You get paid when enough bets have been made by people after you to pay out to you.

So, person 1 bets .5, to get paid .6.  the pot is now .5
person 2 bets .5, the pot is now 1.0 so person1 gets paid .6, the pot is now .4
person 3 bets .5, the pot is now .9, so person 2 gets paid .6.  The pot is now .3
etc...

you can see how it will take longer and longer to get paid.  eventually, someone (or many someones) gets stuck not paid, because no one new is betting.

That's why it's called gambling.  You might lose.

However, if we keep new people coming in, we'll all get paid.

Not really, this will just delay the inevitable. The longer it goes on, the more difficult it will become to keep the game going, and this difficulty will go up exponentially. Unless we have round ends, bitcat.ch will slow to a stop.

An idea I think would be nice is if instead of at the end, all of the current pot going to the last person to put a transaction in, it could all be split among those who had not yet been paid out. Instead of all the last payers losing everything, and having people rushing to get in the last transaction so they'd get the biggest payout of all, everyone who hadn't gotten their payout would at least get something back, even if it wasn't the amount they put in. (FYI, not saying this from a sore loser perspective, so far I've never lost.)

the advantage to "last in gets paid", especially with a minimum bet, is that some more people come in at the end, instead of the round slowly grinding to a halt


But the split idea has merit, also.  better some stop loss than lose it all.

I like the limits, it keeps things moving, but I also wouldn't mind a higher stakes table/round at some point. You know, for the high rollers. Smiley

as an earlier post mentioned, you can make as many .5 BTC bets in a row as you like.

With less risk... if you pay 5 btc in one hit but the pot only ever reaches 5.99 on your turn, you get nothing.

But if instead you had played 0.5 btc 10 times, you'd get 9 of them paid out.

Edit: Where the risk is higher with this strategy is getting all 10 of your plays submitted before other players... at least with one big play it's easier to race.

I agree with the smaller amounts. It allows the game to keep moving. Large bets stop people from playing as they worry about the cutoff time.

Small or large, it does the same thing.
Whats the difference of 100 people puts in 0.5 BTC vs. 1 person putting in 50.0 BTC?
They both equal to the same amount in the pool.

because this pool is so transparent, people see the big bet and get scared off, afraid they won't get paid.  That the big bet will clog up the pool.

However, a long list of unpaid's is also "scary".  Not as much, I dont think, but that's a personal opinion.

If someone were allowed to place 50 BTC in one hit, and you were visiting the site at the same time as them, then if they get in just ahead of you, you'd have to wait for 60 BTC to get paid out before you get anything.

On the other hand, if there were a bet limit of say 0.5 BTC and you were visiting the site at the same time as one hundred other people, then you have more chance of racing to get in ahead of them.

I do get your point, but personally, i don't think it would be much of a difference, I mean look at it now.

Either way though, I believe the admin will create different rates so, so we just need to hang in there a bit longer.

Someone said earlier having the last player win the pot. I like this idea, but instead of the last player, how about the last 5 players.

And instead of a set time for it to end, how about 12 hours no deposits, then it ends.

He should have a new round start every day at the time this one did.  That's about an hour after I get to work.  I would make bank hitting it at the start every day!

seriously, tho, someone told me it should have a random end time, and not tell us what that end time is until 5 minutes to go.  Now, that's gambling!

Seems to be up, "Round 2" link is completely broken though (500 internal error)

Not sure if I want to join this late into the game considering there are about 10-20 unpaid deposits into the game, half of which are "large" 2.0 pots, gonna be a while before it'll get to me before tomorrow

EDIT: Down again... this service seems pretty unreliable

No offense but that looks really sketchy. Not to mention zero transparency plus a zero refund policy on top of the fee you are already charging, plus the fact that you pretty much decide the end at will, keeping the btc in your complete control

No thanks!

Pretty much what I just said in the new thread he started about it.... the fee ranges from 4% to 40% because it's flat.

No offense, but it's kind of rude posting your game on a different operators post with your game link. Also, I don't think you will get very far with a free hosting with banners ads.

I couldn't play if I wanted to anyway, all my coins are pending in BitCatch lol, Op needs to get on soon!

I'm not bashing on your script, just don't like the idea of thead hiJacking. If I don't like your game, I just won't play it, that's all. But my comment about using a free hosting, it was just a suggestion to use a real paid server for many reasons.

Anyway, I wonder when Xyu is going to come back on. =[

The script crashes daily, from what I can tell at least. Round one was beta, just a test run with no fees. Round two (this current round) had some new features, so I guess it's still not running correctly.

However, the game Op did refund us for round one when the script just hung there, so I think it's safe to assume he will add back on the missing amount of time or he would refund us as he did in the past. Normally he comes on daily, but for some reason he didn't today.

I think people worried because last time it went down for the whole day, but they don't understand that the admin added back on more time to make up for it. The game op is pretty honest from what I can see so far and I believe he/she can be trusted.

You should probably update the original post. Even though the limits are on the site, the person who just put 5 btc in might have been in the mindset of round 1 after reading the op.

The bet limit is also 4x higher, meaning there are 2-4x less transactions since many people are placing multiple bets. It's probably about the same, just less redundant bets.

Payout is as soon as it's available. Your receiving address that you input will be next to your deposit in the list. As soon as there is enough money in the pot, you get paid out, so you just have to wait until you're the next in line.

If it's been 48 hours you likely played in the last round. Each round will end at the time indicated on the website. Anyone not paid out by the end of the round will not be paid out at all.

Hmm I wonder...

How long does it take to get a payout usually? It appears as if there's enough to fill my 1.2 btc payout ahead of me but it still says I'm unpaid. I wonder if it only does payout if I have confirmations on my end of the client, or maybe the script only does payout at X time during the day?

Someone thought the same earlier in the thread. Basically the way it works is people deposit money, then get paid out 1.2 times the amount they put in. So because of this, if someone deposits 1 BTC, then you deposit 1 BTC, they get paid out their 1.2 BTC but now there is only .8 BTC left in the pot. Over time this gap grows larger, so the people in front of you are simply paying off that larger debt. On a larger scale, imagine a total of 100 BTC has been deposited, that means there will be 20 BTC worth of deposits that are unpaid.

This is why it's a pyramid scheme/gamble, there is no way everyone can get paid out and there's going to be some losers in the end. Bernie Madoff was discovered because it went on long enough that the gap was billions of dollars large, we're just dealing with a few BTC.


If you want to figure out how much is left before you get paid you can do it the quick way or the long way:

Long way: Sum up all the deposits, then subtract the paid amounts, then subtract the 3% fee from each deposit (easy to do with spreadsheets). This will leave you with the current amount left in the pool. Then you can use that to subtract from the total BTC left before you're paid out to get the exact amount.

Short way: Assume the pot is 0. Add up all unpaid deposits up to and including your own. This is a rough estimate of how much before you're paid.

Actually I think a better way is to check how long it took for the last winnings to be paid out (difference between time bitcoin was put in and the time winnings were paid out).

For example the current last payment (to 1LYQigFJFWCamaJiPeSQotAUHxVpgC8AB6) took about 18 hours. So this will probably be the minimum time you will need to get your winnings, probably longer. The estimated duration grows exponentially until it is longer than the time left in the game. At which point you shouldn't play anymore.

Someone thought the same earlier in the thread. Basically the way it works is people deposit money, then get paid out 1.2 times the amount they put in. So because of this, if someone deposits 1 BTC, then you deposit 1 BTC, they get paid out their 1.2 BTC but now there is only .8 BTC left in the pot. Over time this gap grows larger, so the people in front of you are simply paying off that larger debt. On a larger scale, imagine a total of 100 BTC has been deposited, that means there will be 20 BTC worth of deposits that are unpaid.

This is why it's a pyramid scheme/gamble, there is no way everyone can get paid out and there's going to be some losers in the end. Bernie Madoff was discovered because it went on long enough that the gap was billions of dollars large, we're just dealing with a few BTC.


If you want to figure out how much is left before you get paid you can do it the quick way or the long way:

Long way: Sum up all the deposits, then subtract the paid amounts, then subtract the 3% fee from each deposit (easy to do with spreadsheets). This will leave you with the current amount left in the pool. Then you can use that to subtract from the total BTC left before you're paid out to get the exact amount.

Short way: Assume the pot is 0. Add up all unpaid deposits up to and including your own. This is a rough estimate of how much before you're paid.

Except more and more people keep depositing into this, yet the last paid person has been the same for 24 hours or so. No one is getting payouts. I doubt it takes 30+ people, of which many are putting in 2+ BTC into this, to pay off one guy who is expected to get 2.4 BTC when everyone else behind him is already paid. AKA he is "next in line"... and has been for well over a day now. Still hasn't gotten a payout, which makes me think that this thing only pays when the owner decides it to.

It's an automated game. Do the math and you'll see that the pot hasn't reached 2.4 BTC yet.

Still around.

It actually has reached 2.7177 BTC but it needs 2.88   to be paid out.

My mistake. I was thinking of the bet, not the winnings.

How hasn't the pot reached 2.8 BTC when there are dozens of people after him that have put in the same amount? That doesn't make any logical sense. There aren't any payouts happening as far as I can see, assuming the last person who was paid made the pot go back down to zero as a worst case scenario (since it obviously can't be negative).

Basically: I don't understand how the "next in line" is still waiting for the pot to reach 2.8 BTC when there are dozens of people who have put into the pot after him that more than fill the 2.8 requirement.

Then do the math.

I'm still not understanding how the total deposits are at 222 BTC but yet according to your math there is 216 paid when there is clearly more than 6 BTC unpaid. Unless the total paid in your chart = the estimate, after fees.

As such I don't see how the pot is at 2.77 BTC with many people who have desposited into it since the last payout.

adalov's spreadsheet is not clear enough for you?  It's all there in black and white.

There is 222 total deposited. The operator takes a 3% fee, so after fees there is 216 deposited that can be used to pay people out. Of that, about 213 has been paid out, leaving 2.75 in the pot.  Where it seems you're getting confused is the same place someone was earlier in this thread by assuming the game started with the last person that was paid out.

Lets start a fake game with 0% fees.

According to you there is more than enough to pay the next person off, but in reality there is less. This is because when a deposit is paid out, that much comes out PLUS another 20%! In order to get paid out, someone has to add that extra amount. BUT, this extra 20% "debt" keeps adding up as more deposits come in. So even though someone has been paid out, that debt still exists.

In the example given, when the second person deposits their 10 BTC, there is 8 BTC left in the pot, NOT 10BTC. So now someone has to put in 4 BTC just to pay him out. For the third person, there is only 6 BTC left in the pot. Over time that debt gets larger and larger to the point where the later players may not even pay someone out anymore.


Hopefully this clears it up a bit more.

As soon as I get paid out again, I'm going back in, there still a lot of time left to cycle.

I'm going to do the same. There is quite a bit of time left. I think once we get back to the week, it will swing back up again.

It's usually the people who has doubt that gets in too late. I remember people getting scared to get in since round one, and each round i got to cycle at least 3x!

Thank you, this clears up things a bit. So the game is at the point now that because so many people have deposited, it's extremely unlikely that someone who joins now will get paid out? Just saying based on the fact it seems to be taking a full 24 hours to pay off one guy who despoited 2.4 BTC with this many people playing at this stage in the game.

Well, it looks harder becasue people only bidding 0.01 - 0.1 BTC.
When people start to bid the higher again, it will easily clear up.

Also, I think its a bad idea to have 2 games running at once.

Yeah I agree. Its unfair to start the new round while the old one is still running. Diverts new people away and leave us stuck.

He has a right to do that it says that you can loose them. That's why you have to be first in a pyramid.
