Is it intentional that under the current rules depositing more money reduces your chances of getting selected randomly?

If you wanted it the other way around, try this:

Code:
SELECT MemberId FROM bpMember ORDER BY (fromWallet+1)*rand() DESC LIMIT 1;


Both algorithms are correct and favor members who deposited more. I tried both of them 100000 times and here are the results.

Which one would you choose? Smiley

Ahh, my bad.

The sorting order got me.  As I was working it all out, my head got stuck thinking higher = better.

I've been depositing little bits quite regularly (have 1.5btc atm) and haven't had a single random yet...

I am sorry to hear that. But I am sure you will receive random payments because people with smaller deposits receive random payments.

Yeah. I have 1.73 deposited and 3.48 withdrawn. 1.5 of them are from random payments... Pretty good statistics so far...  Random is random but I guess you'll have more than you've deposited in a long run.

OK, I'm in.  Don't really know why I waited.  I think the giant "ALPHA" scared me away until now.

You guys are awesome!  7 new members in less than 12 hours!  Get in on the pyramid while there are still few members.  The more members join, the more money you will make over time.  Those who join earliest reap the greatest reward.

Use referral http://bitcoinpyramid.com/member/349 and then link your own referral in your signature.  Referrals can come fast.

Anyone who signs up with my referral link and makes a deposit will have 20% of all their deposits returned. Just drop me a PM with your member ID. The cashback will be paid to the withdrawal address listed on Bitcoin Pyramid, to ensure the money goes to the right person.

Was hoping to get some advertising links like the randomiser.

Thank you for your comment. The problem is how to reliably manage links without email & password. After MtGox and Bitcoin Randomizer were hacked, I don't want to store any private data in the database. Maybe I could organize some kind of authorization via deposits.

I think I found a solution. Please see the new version of Bitcoin Pyramid with Bitcoin Pyramid Ads. I hope it will increase the number of random payments. Each pyramid member who invested his/her money is kind of a shareholder of this tiny advertising business now. Any feedback is welcome.

Nice!

Maybe set it to show the ad numbers in the payment lists.  A1+, A2-, etc.

The plan is to have Beta by August, 15:
1. Release a version with new algorithm of money distribution [by July, 25]
2. Release a version which shows number of levels of the pyramid [by August, 1]
3. Maybe add some social buttons for twitter/facebook [by August, 8]
4. See how it works for a week. If everything is fine and no bugs found, then:
4.1. call it Beta-version [by August, 15]
4.2. resume paying small bonuses for newcomers who send me their memberId
4.3. start advertizing Bitcoin Pyramid outside the forum

Points 1-3 have been fulfilled. The plan is valid: I am going to start advertising Bitcoin Pyramid on August, 15.

I am going to start advertising Bitcoin Pyramid on August, 15.

Actually there is no need to wait... Bitcoin Pyramid is "beta" now (updated the main post). So I am starting advertizing Bitcoin Pyramid outside the forum and I am resuming giving out 0.01 btc for newcomers who send me their MemberId.

Besides, don't forget everyone.  The more you DEPOSIT, the BETTER chance you have at receiving random payouts.

9 direct referrals and not 1 deposit?  Seriously?  Cheesy
