A side effect that I hadn't thought of is that if anyone has standing BUY orders, he should cancel them immediately. I believe GLBSE should find some mechanism to handle this issue, because I imagine it's a potential problem for most bonds.
All outstanding orders were wiped out yesterday at about 22:30 UTC, so your warning is a bit late.
I have started a thread on GLBSE
about handling bond repayment.
I'm truly sorry about this. As a "POC", the purpose was to learn, and we did learn something valuable here (at least, I know I did).
Can anyone affected by this come forward? I hope you didn't lose too much.
What do people think should be done about this problem?
Does anyone feels he was hurt by my actions, and that I owe him money now because he bought a worthless bond right now?
Should GLBSE do/have done a better job at explaining what the proper way to repay a bond is
? An alert before paying the bond is a must IMO.
