I’m tired of ignoring people questioning the 1300 BTC event on just-dice.com, and YES, even ignoring is tiresome. Here am I trying to explain that carefully and patiently, hoping I can do it once and for all. I know it’s hard, but I’m trying.If you already decided not believing me, then quit the post now.
It’s not worth reading. If you want to know what exactly happened, keep reading, and thank you for your patience.
That day, I withdrew all of my coins from just-dice.com under the account name of “celeste”, 1300BTC. Since it’s an amount larger than what contained in the hot wallet, I submit the withdrawal request on site, and contacted dooglus on IM. Under his guidance, I got my coins.
Shit happened. Dooglus forgot to remove 1300BTC from my balance, which I was completely unaware of.
Meanwhile, I was still a heavy investor on JD, the investment was in another account. Therefore, when I left café table for smoking and chatting with others, I still kept an eye on JD’s stat from time to time. When I noticed from my iPhone screen that my investment rose up more than 10 BTC, I thought, wow, who lost that big!
Turned out “It’s celeste!”
When I went back to my table, looked at my screen, the browser opened, and the balance is 0. If you were me, you’d think very hard to figure out what just happened. Balance changed from 0 to 0, but lost 1300BTC! I tried to contact dooglus on IM, but he’s sleeping. I left message for him, and waited.
Before that happened, I won more than 4000 bitcoins on JD, and had been discussing related issues among several friends. When I left the table, there’re three others sitting there, but none of them would admit he or she touch my computer.
“Who will left his laptop in a café, with half million dollar worth bitcoin, unprotected?” Good question. But the fact is there’s NO bitcoins in my laptop. I store part of my coins on blockchain.info, and the rest in paper wallets, no local storage at all. I cleared my account balance on JD already, (another investing account was never logged in from this laptop), were you me, could you have any incentive to protect nothing?
“You have google authentication enabled, others cannot login!” YES, but I did left that GoogleAuth barcode image on the desktop screen, which you could call it my fault.
“OK, you left your laptop in a café, and you went out to smoke, and you left the barcode image on desktop screen, but what’s the chance that a thief know just-dice.com, and know how to play?” GOOD QUESTION! Along with another good one: “… and he played just like you!”
I had been extensively discussing what I thought about JD, all of my friends knew my thoughts, my “strategy”, and some of them even tried out and won. The idea is simple enough: if you caught some patterns, you could win big and lose small. (Whether I’m in a gambler’s fallacy is beyond the topic in this post.) Any of them (even some of friends of friends) might well place bets just like me.I respect dooglus and his project.
After that event happened, I tried hard explaining details to dooglus, while realizing it’s almost impossible convincing him and others. But I did try. I’ve been a heavy investor on JD, and still am. I don’t want to do harm to JD.
With all due respect, I have to claim that the main fault came from dooglus. The starting point was he forgot clearing the already withdrawn balance. And I had a hard time too, I knew it’s one of my friends in the café that day, but had no proof to spot whodunit.
Dooglus made the decision, and rolled back database.FACT:
- I got nothing in this event.
- No one lost any coin in this event.
No one got hurt, no coin damaged, only left me a bad reputation: a thief stole nothing. I once argued with Dooglus, “do you think if what I told you is true, I’m the only victim in that event?” People call me a thief, with nothing was stole; they call me a scam, with no proof at all.
What could I say? I did nothing wrong, I never and will not hurt anyone.
THANK you for reading.
