I am certainly considering an investment.
You appear to be aware of what is happening in mining at the moment and where it will / needs to go.
You also seem to be aware that it can not be the only area of operation for a Bitcoin business and already have sensible plans for the future.
Obviously, the level of risk I perceive will determine the amount of investment I am willing to make.
So, some questions, as part of my DD, so that I may judge the risk here ...
Is your real name Michael Smith as per the contract on GLBSE ?
What other real life details are you willing to share to establish trust between yourself and your investors ?
What other, if any, accounts do you own / have you owned on this forum ?
What background do you have in IT ?
What background do you have in providing IT services / products to customers ?
You mention employees ... what is your current business, where is it based, what does it do and how long has it traded ?
What previous businesses have you owned ?
Please feel free not to answer any of these questions but bear in mind that investment will suffer accordingly.
I am sorry it has taken to long to respond. I was at a family reunion in Maine.
This is totally understandable.
Yes my real name is Michael Smith.
Right now I am not permitted to give out too much information. My NDA's will be expiring soon(the end on September). Once they are expired I will be allowed to give full disclosure.
I can tell you that Pandora is my daughters name. I can tell you I am from Rhode Island USA. Exact address can not be disclosed as of yet. I am willing to share much more with my investors and have full disclosure once the damn NDA's expire.
I also use another name. I can give it to you through PM. On here it may not be considered an acceptable name for a business owner.
My background in IT is quite vast. I have been working with docsis networks for the past 10 years. on top of that I have been a temp admin at quite a few high profile places. One big one was IBM. I know the ins and outs of most operating systems. I can program in 7 languages. I am not afraid to ask questions when stuck.
For providing services. I have about 7 years experience with running sales and management of a couple places. I have done work with in2streams. I have run my own hosting company for quite a while.
My current business has been running a home based repair business and network security consultant. My employees are basically hands on people. They help with repairs and diagnosis. They also provide tech support when needed. They are A+ Certified.
For previous businesses I have owned. Lets start when I first started out. At first I ran a shop when I was 15. That lasted until someone came to town and beat my prices. Then there was working with segasages.com when it was around. When I was around 20 I ran a hosting company. Then I got married and sold it. From there I was working mostly with contracts. Still running a few things out of the home. Like vpn service voip and much more.
A lot of my contract work has been engineering and designing installations for businesses. I manage my own teams. When we are hired, we are hired as freelance contractors.
Since I am in the security field. I can not divulge the name of the company. As that is a risk we can not take. No offense to you or anyone else asking. As our services are used by very very high profile companies.
This is not a branch from my current ventures. This is separate. I must do this until the legalities of Bitcoin are finalized in the USA.
