First it was the server crashing and burning, with a terse response from technical support "not our problem". Well, it *was* their problem.
Then it took hours to get it back up. Great. It cost me 15 Bitcoins to cover you guys and your gripes. I accidentally manually sent overages to some, forgot about others (and was reminded) and have done my best to keep up my end of the deal.
Where i'm at: I'm broke, about to be homeless and I'm sort of fed up. This has been a great experiment, and it's been great to know all of you, but it's time to hand over the keys to someone else.
The icing on the cake is when I got this message a few minutes ago..
I don't want to run Bitcoinduit anymore. The anxiety I experienced today of being pulled away from other important projects made me realize that it's time to do something else.
However, if nobody is competent, or liquid enough to run it, i'll stop accepting new rounds and just let it die a silent death.
We've learned quite a bit about Bitcoin, and have a great understanding of its weaknesses now, and its relative strengths. I am going to continue to produce ever more solid software and projects based around bitcoin.
So, who wants to take it over?
Game balance is currently at 96 Bitcoins in live pots and Jackpots. I am not selling the site based on this, but I am selling it based on the highest bid. However, in order to qualify to purchase Bitcoinduit, you will need to prove that you have roughly twice this amount available (150-180 bitcoins) so that I can be *SURE* that you aren't going to take the money and run. I want to ensure that the players and hosts are protected.
So, get in touch if you want, and show proof of float funds. Then I'll show you mine. Then we'll negotiate.
