coinjedi hasn't posted since May, and his account hasn't logged in since September. I hope he's ok!

but the last bet was started nov 28th:

Bitcoin price will exceed 10000$ before the year 2016 ends
This statement will be true if the price of one Bitcoin on any of the three largest BTC/USD marketplaces (by USD volume) exceeds 10000 US dollars anytime before year 2017.

Info
Opening date: Nov. 28, 2013

This actually came across my mind, that maybe he is actually not okay.  I mean who would just ditch a business like this and leave all the bitcoins in the accounts?  He could have died, or been injured so bad he can't use his computer anymore

One month since last bet approved. I've had old bets that are resolved still open for many months.

Time to search for any parties that were involved in this site before and find out whats up, how to close resolved bets; perhaps put the site on halt if the lead wizard is out right now

VolanicEruptor == coinjedi

His FUD is good for terminating confidence in this service.
coinjedi perhaps tired from all hassles with
bets' resolving

There are 7 pages of bets that are waiting for a "judge" to resolve the bets: http://betsofbitco.in/list?status=waiting&category=All&sorting=-totalBets&page=1

There's a hell of a lot of money tied up in these bets. Anyone know how to get a hold of the admins?

expecting the worst and treating the situation like I'm never getting it back like CoinLenders

There's over 400 BTC in those pending bets alone; this guy's probably looking at over $1 million USD with the rest of the locked bets;

Ask yourself; what would the average person do; continue service or run away with BTC?

I hope I wasn't right the first time I had doubts, and this wasn't a long con:

I had one or two bets that were due 1st of December, and which were resolved a little later (a week or so).
Overall it seems like the site operators don't put much effort into it anymore, which is pretty sad.
Hopefully they will increase their activity - there's a lot of money to be made :-)

Yeah. I looked up the last bets that were resolved and they were in early December. The bitcoin price was even higher then, so if they didn't rip everyone off when BTC was $1200, I'm hoping they wouldn't do it @ $800, either. So that gives me some hope.

The best thing they could do would probably sell the site to someone that would want to run it, but you'll always have that counterparty risk thing going on.  Tongue

I logged in and one of the two bets I had been waiting on was resolved. Unfortunately, the web site threw errors when I tried to change my withdrawal address, and also when I actually tried to withdraw.

I will wait a few hours and try again, I guess.

The number of statements that were closed, but awaiting resolution went from 7 pages down to 5 pages, so the admins apparently resolved a few dozen before getting bored, I guess.

Edit: Even though the site threw an error when I tried to withdraw, the coins just hit my wallet, so the withdrawal went through anyways, apparently. The didn't pay a transaction fee, though.  Undecided

VALVe will release Half-Life 2 Episode 3 by the end of 2013
http://betsofbitco.in/item?id=369

I think that it can be a good idea to open many new statements about pc gaming. ( and spam them around )
This because it's easy to open flames/discussions about these topics, so it will give a lot of advertising about Bitcoin.
More over, every pc-player has for sure a good GPU Wink

I bet on this, its been almost a week and I'd like to get paid, I dont think there is a lot of detective work to do here!  Undecided

Yep -- 12 hours ago, there were 5 pages of bets waiting to be resolved. Now they are down to 4 pages.

I've taken over BTC3 off of the site in the past few days once they started resolving bets, so it appears the admins are still alive and solvent, which is good news.

One thing...for both of my recent withdrawals, the site returned an error page, saying my request did not complete when I tried to withdraw. Despite this, the withdrawal went through about 5 minutes later anyways.

So for those that still have money on the site...relax...it looks like everything will be OK.

Though I know I for one will not be betting anymore on anything with a deadline several months into the future.

The most recent new statement added was Nov 28 though, so it does not appear that new statements are getting added to the site.

Keep trying -- the last 2 times that I withdrew, it gave me that same error right when I clicked "withdraw" but the coins showed up anyways.

If you're getting the error elsewhere, log out, then sign back in. Immediately go to the withdraw section and avoid unnecessary clicking around.
