Pirate was so fast with me, the coins were in my wallet with 144 confirmations before I even asked for them.

It's because he has ESP and he's getting ready to use GPUMAX to 51% the network so he's withholding blocks until he needs the confirmations.  I haven't figured out how to work "ponzi" into this yet, sorry.</conspiracy>

That's because every machine that mines shares from GPUMax receives a trojan that is part of the PirateNet.  That's why people saw the fluctuations in their reported hashing before he worked the kinks out of the system.

Didn't you ever notice that "I control your machine," is an anagram of "GPUMax rocks" in Akkadian?  And of course we all know that the Cajuns are the Akkadians who came to America when the Sea Peoples left the Mediterranean after the collapse of Atlantis.

It's one short drive from Cajun country to PirateVille, and now you know why he *really* uses that nom de guerre.

Who gave reeses the salad shooter.... and when are they going to take it back?

There "ain't nothing like the real thing, baby".  Grin

But not everyone can get an account, and not everyone wants to deposit enough to get the higher interest rate, so a pass-through, even after the issuers cut, may give a better return.

You do take on an extra dose of counterparty risk though, so you need to trust not only pirate, but also the pass-through issuer.

And GLBSE if it is on GLBSE.

Yep, effectively adding two points of potential failure to the system in exchange for convenience of purchase, liquidity, and increased interest at lower volumes.

No, someone else figured it out. He just takes advantage of it. Argh.

If you're going to bite off my awesome, at least step it up a notch.  Your point-missing skills aren't just limited to sports.

These threads are inevitable annoyances.  I'm arrogating to myself the authorship of "Pirate's Law": As an online discussion regarding pirateat40, btcst, GPUMax, or projects to be referred to as M, P, and X grows longer, the probability of speculation and accusation of unethical or criminal activity approaches is 1.

FTFY

Amusing new poll. Irrespective of the potential Ponzi issue, who runs Pirate's operation: others who postulate fraud, or Pirate himself?

I've already suggested that overall Bitcoin economy growth could support such high rates, and that even if it is a Ponzi, it most likely is to the detriment of the US dollar instead of Bitcoin or investor deposits.

The outcome of the poll is quite predictable too. What investor would like lower returns without altering the risk involved in the investment?

Certainly not me.

Ahoy me mateys!

I came across this thread just today. It really sounds like an interesting service and congrats to all the pirates who operate it smoothly for that long. I've read all 46 pages (Shiver me timbers!) so far (well it took me a bit more than 3 hours because English is not my native tongue, but it was worth it) and I think I have a clear understanding of how the system works.

Unfortunately, (Captain) Pirate changed the joining method to referal-only back in February. I can understand the reasons for him doing so, but that's not very good news for me it seems, since I don't know any current pirate (lender) in person for them to refer me.

Just to clarify, I'm not posting this to ask for a referrer (so don't make me walk the plank). I'm just not sure of what I need to do to gain a current lender's trust, so then he/she could "check me in".

In any case, it's always nice to see bitcoin businesses grow and more people adopting the new currency Smiley
Cheers!

I would look for a Pirate Pass Through type scheme in the lending section; there are a number of people offering them.

Those have the advantage of liquidity and higher interest rates for smaller investments, though risk is increased due to an additional middleman.

The lazy Starfish likes the poll and has actually said interest rate is a bit high.

However, before someone shoots me, I'm thinking about the longer term and not the nice ride that the past six months has delivered.  There are some structural things that can be done to improve the whole deposit/interest rate trade-off to promote the business, and while 7% is nice for another month, even if it was 5% for another six months that would be better.
