I will commit 10 BTC to the bounty. However, unless a VERY reputable member steps up to escrow the coins for the bounty, I would rather hold them myself.

would you feel better if we had someone reputable like Bruce Wagner hold on to this bounty wallet?

Right now, no one is reputable, including anyone claiming to be Bruce Wagner or the real live Bruce Wagner.

Being a Hero Member is useless too SgtSpike - nothing personal.

I trust exactly 1 person regarding my BitCoin.
Yeah, no problem.  Just thought I'd throw my name out there to help, but it doesn't make a difference to me whether I hold it or not.

i don't care to hold them either, i didn't even have any bitcoin in mybitcoin.com, i just want to see some justice! and i think if we post a reward for catching this bad guy, we can get some results and make an example of him.

we need this.
we have to trust someone to hold the bounty wallet

I will hold the Bitcoin for a Bounty.

Would you guys be happy if I use my brand new http://BitBills.com Bank Card?   It's totally offline.    Is that secure enough for you all?

If not, I'll get a more secure offline system set up with security guys here to witness it's setup.

I think it should be requirement that someone here holds the bounty themselves this show the world that bitcoin is trustworthy and slaps the naysayers in the mouth!

Bruce if you get a serious bounty going I will donate 10+ BTC so we can hire a private investigator and get to the bottom of this...

Spend the bounty hiring a private investigator? Surely it would make more sense to pay a private investigator using some other high risk investment pool, with the benefactors claiming the bounty. Spending the bounty before Tom is found is not a good idea for the community IMO, unless it's an investigation pool rather than a bounty on his head.

This is one of those things that could make or break Bitcoin as a whole, Bruce getting the bounty money and taking off.  Even I'd lose faith lol.

Obviously we are talking about an investigation pool. Bounty shouldn't be the word that we should frame this money as. We just want justice as a community, and want Tom Williams to at-least explain to us what happened. All we have is a signed pgp message and a flaky explanation. But yes I am all for donating to the investigation of the case of Tom Williams and MyBitcoin.

Bruce Wagner is someone here. he's one of us.

I think hes the perfect candidate because we trust him, and if he ran away with the bounty money, we'd know where to find him.  Tongue

I believe the bitbill Bank Card is the best kind of security. just don't let anyone have access to it.

again i didn't lose any bitcoins in this ordeal, but it pissed me off hearing about it and i would add 1btc to the bounty.

the idea is having the bounty high enough so that the people close to the culprits provide information which lead to his capture or someone dose his own investigation to win the bounty

wait a second. not sure how the bitbill bank card works... does bitbill hold the wallet.dat? if so then we would have to trust them. is this the case?
maybe we should go for a simply offline wallet stored on a usb. this way we only have to trust Bruce.

We could trust the priest below with the bounty, for he looks trustworthy. As for the sex sign, he told me it was a misprint. It was suppose to be Essex.

A bank card is an offline generated public and private key, engraved on a metal card. No one has the wallet.dat file, since it never existed. After depositing money to the bank card, to get it out you have to scan the private key from the card and import it into a bitcoin wallet. The only way someone can steal bitcoin off of it is if Bruce has it on him, and gets mugged while walking around NY

Someone engraved the card, right?
Bruce would better pick 64 random hexadecimal digit and get the corresponding Bitcoin address

Own address: 19QkqAza7BHFTuoz9N8UQkryP4E9jHo4N3 - Pywallet support: 1AQDfx22pKGgXnUZFL1e4UKos3QqvRzNh5 - Bitcointalk++ script support: 1Pxeccscj1ygseTdSV1qUqQCanp2B2NMM2
Pywallet: instructions. Encrypted wallet support, export/import keys/addresses, backup wallets, export/import CSV data from/into wallet, merge wallets, delete/import addresses and transactions, recover altcoins sent to bitcoin addresses, sign/verify messages and files with Bitcoin addresses, recover deleted wallets, etc.

I don't believe you people.

Why? What possible advantage does that have, as opposed to everyone publicly committing to the bounty and pointing to the address where the money is held, that makes it a "have to?"

For the record, I'll publicly commit 5 BTC to the first person to publicly out the true identity of Tom Williams. It must be verifiable, and in general, if the public accepts the proof, I'll accept it. I'll need some time to setup an offline wallet to store the funds, and provide an address that can be checked on blockexplorer.

My portion of the bounty is good until December 31, 2011, 11:59:59pm EST. (I don't want to keep the funds in limbo forever.)

Also, I'll probably be dropping some bitchange to that address on occasion, so it will likely end up with a couple of bitcoins more.
