First thing I would like to point out to you. Mining is NOT the base of this company.
Second thing is that I do not plan on hosting services from a rig. This is just a silly concept. I do not even know how you came to conclude this.
Third is the fact we will also be in retail and many other areas of the market. We do not plan on just mining or just services or just retail etc. The point is to expand and constantly grow.
Yes my family is involved. In minor ways. Those small things they help with will give me the little bits of free time I need to get projects done. Also I do not speak Mandarin yet my wife does. So she can help field phone calls. I call it cheap labor. As they do not want to be paid. They just want to be there for me.
What sets me apart is my passion. My knowledge. My ability to grow. The fact that I not close minded.
Th reason this is in the newbies section has been answered a few posts back. It is mainly the fact that I started in the newbies section and locked here. The original investors came to notice recognize this as the place to come for more information.
Yes I still need to work on the contract a bit and the business plan. Then again GLBSE still needs a little bit more work as well. I plan on working it out over a little bit of time. I am not ashamed nor worried about the fact that these need work. I know and understand this.
My age is 30 if that really matters.
PBJ has a different meaning to me. I chose it for the initials of my child, my wife, and bitcoins. The three things I love.
As for the comment about my daughters name! You have NO right to say what I can name my child. My child is over 3 years old. She is before the current scheme of naming everything Pandora. This I take as a personal insult.
Do you even know the story behind Pandora?
As for the reasons I say thank you at the bottom of my posts. One reason is not to be rude. Second reason is I am thanking people for taking the time out of their lives to come and read a post. As people do not need to be here nor do they need to read my thread/posts.
As for calling me a troll.
It appears as if you are the troll. Trying to get me angry. Trying to bash the business. Trying to make yourself look bigger than you really are.
wow. this sounds like a huge....
scam at the worst, terrible TERRIBLE TERRIBLE investment at best.
as a web developer and dabbler in IT,
and current operator of 4 GH/s of mining rigs,
i feel i'm as knowledgeable as anyone to contribute to this discussion.
first of all,
every one of your posts is hopelessly optimistic and too quick to refute any negative claim,
or conversely respond with thanks to any positive encouragement.
that sends an immediate red flag to me.
second, bitcoin mining rigs CANNOT simultaneously host websites and offer VPN services and the like.
your computers' resources will be strained as it is, especially if you're overclocking and trying to squeeze the best performance out of your videocards.
... so are you suggesting that shareholders will earn a return of the entire companies profits?
so let's just call it what it is, as your mining rigs will probably not turn as much of a profit as you expect.
investors would primarily first and foremost be helping to fund the development of a web hosting / vpn offering services firm,
that is admittedly going to have help by his family (which also seems a little sketchy, unprofessional, to me. especially since you cited your family as 'cheap labor'),
and which are a dime-a-dozen at the moment. what sets you apart? your lucrative NDA contracts with suppliers and such? please. sounds ridiculous.
my concern is that, you're loosely tying this to bitcoin mining, to help raise capital to reduce the risk of starting your company with your family.
and i say 'loosely' in the worst sense of the word.
you are posting this to the "Newbies" forum, preying on people who are also new to the bitcoin concept.
you lack a concise business contract and business plan. and...
let's be honest, since your company is only loosely based on bitcoin mining,
when you inevitably (or perhaps this is your plan all along) determine that to be unprofitable or not worth it,
since you were only 'loosely' tied to this makeshift btc run stock exchange,
you will be inclined to 'take the money and run' so to speak.
... and since the shares are so low in value anyway, no one will bother to sue you for recompensation.
... not that a lawsuit like that would probably even stand any merit anyways, considering it is bitcoin after all.
whatever, it's just a typical grift.
obvious troll, is obvious. stop donating money to him. jesus.
...also, it would not surprise me if the poster is 14, operating all this as a scam, cleverly choosing the ticker PBJ because it coincides with peanut butter and jelly,
(thus further adding insult to the fact that none of your 'investments' will never be returned).
hell, i did worse when i was 14. and who names their kid pandora? maybe you enjoyed Avatar just a little too much. give me a break.
