Cryptx

Another important question - there is some missinformation about reinvestment:

I will quotet Your posts realted to reinvestments:

Latest dividend:

95.89078392 BTC in total from mining:
- 49.34200955 as Dividend (0.00061162 BTC / share)
- 26.56877437 Reinvestment (brings total to 111.69349338 BTC)
- 19.98000000 Hosting Fee

We will also post a new update later today.


Latest developments

- Deployment:
So far, Bitmine systems are coming in slow. We will visit them next Monday to discuss ongoing issues and delays in manufacturing and delivery as daily production volume remains low and is of course directly impacting our project. We remain in day-to-day communication to follow up on progress and speed up things wherever we can (we purchased our own PSU’s for the desk model as Bitmine ran out and has a delay with their PSU manufacturer, do part of assembly ourselves, use the fasted available shipping, etc. )

- Reinvestment:
We have purchased 18 new 1TH systems from LK Group Ltd. for a total of 108 BTC (6 BTC / System). These systems are also based on the A1 chip and should be available by end of next week (April 4th).  More info can be found on their website http://www.lketc.com/engoods/show/252.aspx

- Mining Pool:
It is our opinion that our hashrate is still too small to go solo and set up our own mining pool. We will evaluate this further as we grow, but are of course not bound to Eligius. Besides stable revenue / frequent payouts it is also important that our hashrate remains transparent and can be easily monitored by unit holders.

Although things are not yet at full speed, we are glad to have crossed the 150TH mark this week and provide steady revenue. We will continue to work hard for the growth and success of the PETA-MINE and keep you updated on new developments.


So firstly we have 111btc - 108 goes to 18TH of LK miners.

then:

Dividend:

102.13891005 BTC in total from mining:
- 48.55633648 as Dividend (0.00060188 BTC / share)
- 26.14571964 Reinvestment (brings total to 29.77911302 BTC)
- 27.43685393 Hosting Fee



We have deployed the 18 Dragon miners. All are working fine.

Therefore we have ordered another 5 miners at the price of 6 BTC. Retail price is 6.79 BTC
(http://www.lketc.com/engoods/show/252.aspx)

These miners should arrive next Thuesday.


so now after that we have:
 0 btc for reinvestment
all BTC spend for reinvestment - 108+30=148 BTC
18+6 = 24 TH from reinvestment

Dividend:

103.46617467 BTC in total from mining:
- 46.09390765 as Dividend (0.00057136 BTC / share)
- 24.81979643 Reinvestment
- 32.55247059 Hosting Fee

Status Update:
- Units bought with last week reinvestment funds will arrive on Tuesday, we will buy additional units with this weeks reinvestment (4TH for 24 BTC).
- 350 A1 Chips are still for sale.
- Production of our own systems started and we expect first units to be ready by next week.


so now we have:
 0.8 btc for reinvestment
all BTC spend for reinvestment - 108+30+24=162 BTC
18+6 +4= 28TH (28 LK miners) from reinvestment


Dividend:

117.11415716 BTC in total from mining and converted NMC's:
- 54.99030742 as Dividend (0.00068164 BTC / share)
- 29.61016553 Reinvestment (which will be reinvested in new systems, 5 x 1TH units)
- 32.51368421 Hosting Fee

Status Update:
- We deployed our first new production units and they are steadily hashing, additional units should also arrive in the coming week.
- There was some speculation about the 23.399 BTC deposit, this was just a manual withdrawal request from ghash.io for mined coins. So, 350 Chips are still for sale.

so now we have:
 0 btc for reinvestment
all BTC spend for reinvestment - 108+30+24+30=192 BTC
18+6 +4+5= 33 TH from reinvestment (33 LK miners)

Details about this weeks dividend payout:

145.47869416 BTC in total from mining and converted NMC's:
- 61.04631249 as Dividend (0.00075670 BTC / share)
- 32.87109134 Reinvestment (30BTC will be used to reinvested for a total of 6 TH)
- 51.56129032 Hosting Fee

Status update:
- We topped 450TH/s this week and deployed +200TH in the past 7 days, more systems to come but it remains to be seen if systems can arrive before May 1st (customs are closed from May 1st - May 4th due to official holidays), we are doing our best to arrange fasted possible shipping.
- For those interested, a peak into the peta-mine http://www.peta-mine.co/inside-the-peta-mine/


so now we have:
2 btc for reinvestment
all BTC spend for reinvestment - 108+30+24+30+30=222 BTC
18+6 +4+5+6= 39 TH from reinvestment (39 LK miners)

Next updates dont include buying miners and gives as total aroung 150 BTC so exactly as it is stated in prospect.
But in prospect there is 27 Dragonminers from LK, according to my calculation it should be 39 or this founds goes to other systems or what?

It means : we are currenty hashing at 466th - 39th are from aour founds (not from IPO but our cash taken to reinvestment.) so Cyptx provide 427th.
Or if we have for real 503th: 503 - 39th = 464 th but we are currently hashing at 466th during last week.

Cryptx please explain how much TH You provide from IPO funds and how much and what machines You provide from our reinvestment funds.

That's the problem with virtual companies, there is no corporate governance, we have no 'rights' as shareholders, in fact we are not even represented by shareholder elected directors. So we should not be entirely suprised when so called 'founders' steamroller through their own decisions regardless of whether they might represent a conflict of interest.

Having said that, I knew I was taking a chance on the people behind honest when I got into this. But there IS a very good reason why none of these IPO's would be legal in the developed world.

Cryptx differs from being a virtual company in my humble opinion.

Since they are a registered company in Belgium they actually have their names, addresses (and names of their spouses... err. spouse in singular since one of them is unmarried) online through what is called in Belgium 'het staatsblad' which lists the registration papers of all companies.

I do agree with all of you that their main source of income is the hosting of 'our' miners, but that seemed obvious to me from day one.
On the other hand if they would really like to scam us I personally would think they would have done it in a less privacy-exposing way than this, so I still trust in the fact they are trying to make a decent income, while not biting the hand that feeds them...

Yes they are bad at communication, yes their math is way-off from time to time, but they are out in the open, and not 2 script kiddies having a blast without any risk towards themselves... If they really were in it for a short time scam, I would imagine they would have serious nightmares given that they are so exposed to all of you...

So nope, it is not a virtual company.
It is a normal SME, struggling to improve without a doubt, but I truly believe in their intentions to make it a win-win for most or all of us.
And Peta-Mine and Scrypt are just vehicles towards this end goal I think/hope.
In the end I think they had a great idea (and the balls to do it) and up until now they are doing a great job in trying to get and keep it going.

Regarding IPOs like this not being legal in the developed world...

Most if not all (even big) dot com company IPOs should be deemed illegal then, since most of them don't care about their users or shareholders, most of them have never even had profit in their books... Even the bigger companies like Apple are known to not have their corporate strategy tied by activist shareholders (remember the debate regarding flowing some of the excess cash towards the shareholders a few months ago).

I do agree that most dot com companies are not sound investment strategies,
however as long as there is demand we are on the wrong side of the tape/ticker aren't we...

Many ventures starting out honest turn to scamming when things go wrong and best-case scenario projections fail to materialize.

Thanks for your swift reply.

Yet up until now if they would have just done nothing, they would have been well off as well.
As in, there is no clear reason for them to start scamming in my humble opinion.

Shares can only be sold to other interested parties, so the risk is shared between the share holders,
the hosting fee is a fee that is payed no matter if the share price should fall, it would just burn out sooner rather than later due to the lacking initial power to keep up.  (hereby already indicating that in my calculations keeping up with the network with reinvestments is simply not possible)

I am interested in your last statement however...

If I would understand how cons worked, they wouldn't ?

Care to enlighten me ? 
What I stated is that if they would really be complete scams they would be better off in just letting the fund 'starve to death' at the 0.45 hosting cost and open up a new one with a new venture instead.
Now they have published their names, addresses, ages, registration numbers out in the open for all of us to see.

Clearly I have missed something from the Danny Brewster story since they are not youngsters, so please do clarify.

^If the marks understood how scams worked, they would not "invest" in the scams, and the scams would fail.  I assumed that was self-evident.

A well-orchestrated scam is one where the perpetrators do not need to run and hide.  A good scam is both sustainable and, when it finally concludes, is indistinguishable from an ordinary failed business.  This one's not only feeding money into a hosting business, it is also raising money through now-standard "second IPOs," and sprouting siblings (SCRYPT).

As far as names, addresses, and the rest of that silliness, in Bitcoinspace that's not even a risk -- the names and addresses of Pirateat40, Ukyo and NeoBee are public knowledge also.  A good scammer knows his marks.

That's what you seem to have missed in the Danny Brewster story.

I agree mostly with what people are saying when they say this isn't a con.

they could also be pumping and dumping their own shares.  I don't know that there is any mandatory disclosure of the primaries' positions in terms of shares, or if they are obligated to disclose their sales.

This listing of the IPO at well over market struck me as strange from the outset.  I have no idea nor evidence that's it's an intentional pump, so it's nothing but speculation that it is possible.  It happens every day and is not a new idea.

For the most part I'm a fan.  PETA has been pretty good to me.  I'm not thrilled about this IPO coming out well over market price, as I think it
 is a mistake on a couple of levels, one of which is that price will likely drop a good 15-25% upon trade opening again, as the market clearly is not buying the .095 valuaton, so this will shoot investors, who are locked out of trading right now, straight in the ass, although PETA can still fix this if they want to......

@NotLambChop

Firstly thanks for the response,
I did misinterpret your statement.

I must admit I personally have an issue with the idea of an IPO in an already running fund and the way it went down.  

The abbreviation IPO seems to be used without any sense of meaning on havelock so the idea of 'sound investments' is gone from the moment you start picking up shares over there anyhow.  They were able to buy shares, set a new price and lock out all the others (who made it happen from day one) in the meanwhile.    In my opinion that is what market regulation does on the normal market, regulating those types of excesses ...
Yes we all have made bad decisions based on emotions (or at least I did buy stock of companies that I shouldn't have), but a normal firm is never able to do this type of manipulation (or not so visibly anyhow).  I would understand that they would create some risk based derivative as in an option plan for themselves, but these are also publicly published in a normal market situation.  Now the market deregulation is so clearly visible that staying in the market seems illogical all together.

Giving I already received feedback that portrayed me as being a cryptx fanatic of some kind I would like to restate I have never made 'investment advice' regarding them, rather I posed questions and made statements regarding likelihood of them being scammers giving their personal exposure.

I do appreciate your feedback, link to previous cases and your critical view overall, sharing these is what forums are ment for in my opinion !

So thanks for enlightening me regarding the Brewster story.

I'm not sure why you thought I was talking abour Cryptx as being virtual, it's the PETA project that is in effect a virtual corporation. Neither did I say
I believed they are scamming us. My view is they have taken the opportunity to generate a high value project where nearly all the risk is on us the shareholders of the project (who also appear have no say in the running of that project). It's win/win for Cryptx almost any way this goes, and in that I must congratulate them on a good business plan. Having said all that, their IPO('s) would not be legal in most countries if for no other reasons than they donot provide shareholder safeguards or manage conflicts of interest transparently or at all!

I also didn't have any issue with the initial win/win plan potential, but their last move made my alarms go off as well....

Yes! Really happy about this, Cryptx has done it again! Not sure why I doubted them, they have always been good to me and done a good job. A few delays but that was out of their control.

Shares are now flying!

now, that is a bold move and commitment to their own project, i like to see this!
Apparently some other market participants also waited for a sign like this and are now confident enough to put a larger chunk of PETA into their portfolios.

I am really curious, how many shares there will be left for cryptx to pick-up this sunday  Smiley

As for dividends, I guess nothing changes. The hardware is bought and thus the money needs to come from somewhere. Either ipo money, or temporary 100% reinvestment of btc mined(-cost obviously). As there was no announcement in this regard, I can only speculate.

Nevertheless, even if for some weeks every bitcoin mined (minus cost) goes into paying off the hardware, I would still be a very happy PETA shareholder Smiley

Technically, "buying" their own shares simply means not offering to sell them on the market and resuming open market trading early. But I don't care as long as it works... Remember, that currently they generously(!!!) do not pay dividends to themselves for the shares they still have unsold from the ipo.  Now that they officially "bought" them, they will (and should!) pay themselves dividends on those shares. Don't think your dividends won't be lower...

That isn't accurate. If he purchases the shares they will be earning dividends and no longer available to be used for an IPO.

I would be much more comfortable if he had more skin in the game. This is a very positive move in my opinion.
