List of VIP Donators (50 BTC)
There are a special group of VIPs that donated 50BTC to the forum. This is that club.
It is interesting to see that some profiles are abandoned while others went out to scam.
Some of them changed their names and some were hard to track down...

It is funny how many of them have made stupid choices or fuck up someone. I think many of these should still use an altcoin. And some still access the forum with this account, but few comments. This should tell a lot about the current situation of the forum and the difficulty of finding a good topic to discuss a more serious matter.

Nice effort. i have two comments, putting images between [img] is easier than clicking on it one by one but the topic will take much longer to load + we cannot see the full list because not everything can be loaded... I prefer to put the full list in [.code] then you can keep images at the end.
Now, if you want to keep the images, i recommend using default trust.

It really depends on exactly when they made the donation. If it was in 2011 it could range from $25 to $800. I remember reading in 2013 that the amount was supposed to be around 1 months server hosting costs. The price range at that time 50 BTC would have been $1,500 to $2,500 until later in the year when the run up to $1,200 for 1 BTC happened. I doubt if anyone purchased after that.

I recommend using default trust.
He has modified the settings of his trust. So trust numbers for some accounts are not correct.

Also, there are some posts overlapping with images such as **Please delete it

This site seems to work like bitcointalk.to

The baffling thing is that the last update for this list is "April 2017", Is it possible for an account to make a donation after the price of the Bitcoin exceeds $ 1,000?

In April 2013 the price range for BTC was $50 to $230. All those VIP listed above were registered in 2012 or before. I haven't checked the Donator list but it is possible that there was a 10 BTC ($500 to $2,300) donation at that time.

Edit I misread 2017 for 2013. A $10,000 donation is possible I suppose.

This should tell a lot about the current situation of the forum and the difficulty of finding a good topic to discuss a more serious matter.

This forum is pretty representative of what the whole crypto ecosystem looks like. It's filled with fools and other money hungry individuals nursing their greed, which we can thank the in-process mainstream adoption for. Every person joining this forum but also the crypto ecosystem in general is less likely going to contribute, and it's only going to become worse.

Plenty of them moved over to Reddit, but even that platform has been nuked by trolls, shills, beggars and other fools. We can only adapt to the situation and make the best out of what is left. At the end of the day, no one is forced to stay at this forum. People have the freedom to create their own forum if they think Bitcointalk isn't the right place for them.

Also, some of the oldies might have sold the majority of their coins later on, which gives them less incentive to be active here. It's not only the state of this forum they try to avoid; there is always more than the obvious.

Please visit this thread. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2813854.0). roslinpl has raised a valid point. I suggest that the OP removed that suspicious link as others might fall for that phishing site. And I remember one user get phished because he complained in his local boards that he/she can get in and his password and email was changed and then we found that the screenshot was not bitcointalk.org but that phishing site.

I just found the link as you posted it. I've already removed the links.

Edited.

It is a suspect site - it was from the google results. Edited and removed it. Thank you for spotting that.

Nice effort. i have two comments, putting images between [img] is easier than clicking on it one by one but the topic will take much longer to load + we cannot see the full list because not everything can be loaded... I prefer to put the full list in [.code] then you can keep images at the end.
Now, if you want to keep the images, i recommend using default trust.

I think I have default trust set. Some of the images were accidentally taken from a clone site (google result) - now changed so it did not show the trust.
At the time it was late and I thought it was just legacy accounts but as another user pointed out it is a suspect site (so I have changed all the links and those images).

I'm not quite sure I understand your [.code] suggestion.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

This should tell a lot about the current situation of the forum and the difficulty of finding a good topic to discuss a more serious matter.

In the early days of the forum it was an extension of the Crypherpunks mailing list. It was a collection of IT savvy crypto enthusiasts. Main discussion was about code development and the eco-system.  Interesting trades were being done.

Now that cypto is more mainstream there are fewer public discussions about code development.

A lot of user on here are "tip lickers" (looking for free tips, airdrops and bounties). That has resulted in a lot more low quality posts and repetitive discussions lacking substance.

This thread was created as an extension of The most iconic bitcointalk threads. History on Bitcointalk. to document some of the development that this forum has been a catalyst for. Some of the early adapters succeeded while other failed miserably or scammed others.

OP, your findings make an interesting read. With all sense of responsibility, I think those who donated that huge amount of BTC did so when Bitcoin was worthless or if you like "when it was at pizza level" No sane person can do that now, not even the world's wealthiest. Those donors datelines for account openings on BTT points to that era of bitcoin unawares. And that is why some of the VIP donors attempted scamming later. Perhaps, they wanted to recoup that money having realized the appreciation bitcoin has recorded and of its high price.

It is very interesting that many top donators have the top lowest rating on the forum Smiley. And in general, pirateat40 was implicated in one of the most ambitious bitcoin ponzi scheme.


This forum is pretty representative of what the whole crypto ecosystem looks like. It's filled with fools and other money hungry individuals nursing their greed, which we can thank the in-process mainstream adoption for.

I think that actually it is a great thing, that forum is flooded with new people, it is no meter how full or money hungry they are, becouse they are helping mass adoption.

This should tell a lot about the current situation of the forum and the difficulty of finding a good topic to discuss a more serious matter.

Every person joining this forum but also the crypto ecosystem in general is less likely going to contribute, and it's only going to become worse.


Currently for sure they will not contribute, but they will learn something, much likely this forum helps them in it, and some of them may contribute 5 or 10 years from now, I am sure that several years ago things were better on this forum, but everything is changing, and I think that this current changes is also for better.

Interesting, it seems many of them receive negative trust, not sure if it is a typical ratio of negative trusted accounts though.

Where is Hal? One of the most important person in Bitcoin History is missing from this list  Huh

Most of the donators have received negative trust since they were scammers and ran ponzi schemes which were exposed lately!

Not on the list for some reason. https://bitcointalk.org/donate.html

Did they change their names after donating?

No they didn't change their names. They may have been omitted from the list by oversight. They don't appear on the later list either.

I've added those.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

OK, so another theory. Maybe they didn't donate 50 BTC but were gifted the VIP status because of their contribution to Bitcoin and the forum.
