The Bitcoin Investment Bank (BIB; soon to be listed on GLBSE) offers you the opportunity to invest in a bitcoin bond secured by two GPU cards paying 1 % interest per month. The bond with either be repaid in four months time, or the interest payable will increase to 2 % per month.

For more details, read the asset contract here or see these threads here and here for background information.

There are 3440 bond issued at a par of 0.1 BTC. The listing price will be 0.096 BTC for the remainder of November (giving you an extra couple of weeks interest!). The asking price will increase to 0.097 BTC on December 1 and in regular increments weekly after that.

The first four months interest is factored into the buy price. If the bond steps up, interest will be paid as dividends monthly in arrears.

If you have further questions, fire away here or by PM.

The Bitcoin Investment Bank will soon be listing on GLBSE. It will offer GLBSE brokering services, lending, options, futures, and venture capital. If you are interested in serving on the board or working as a contract officer, please PM me with your background and qualifications and why you would like to work for BIB.

The bond contract with Goat requires that the hashing output of one of the 6990 cards is directed towards a "security address" as partial repayment of the bond. The output of the other card can go towards the electricity bill. One of the reasons for this proof of security is to show that the card is still in Goat's possession and operating properly. I have made a spreadsheet to check the expected output and compare it with the balance of the security address.

It already is: see OP.

The ticker symbol is BIB.goat.

The contract reads better if you choose to view source. In Chrome, at least, some of the formatting is lost in the "normal" view.

Only a couple of days left before the price goes up to reflect to decreased time to maturity. Repayments are on track. Still over 3000 available.

brendio (and bidders who aren't buying the bond at the current value price):
On the off chance that you haven't seen this (since there are outstanding buy orders that users have probably forgotten, many lower than the initial lended amount):

On what date will the bond issuer buy back the bonds at .104?
Wht date will they become .106?

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack

If goat pays back the bond in full by March 1, I will buy back the bonds at 0.1 BTC as soon as the funds clear to my GLBSE account. If the bond is not repaid in full by then, interest at 2% per month will be liable at the end of each month, and I will pay these out as dividends as they are received.

Just want to make sure I have this down, assuming I want to go longer than March 1st I then pay you the 2% monthly interest directly? That will be around 7BTC a month?

Thanks

Yes, the first four months interest is capitalised in the repayment amount. If the bond steps up, you pay interest monthly to me, and I'll pass it on as dividends to sub-bond holders.

See clause 2.4 of our contract:

Quote
2.4 Step up interest , if applicable, shall be payable at the end of each month until the loan is repaid in full. In the case that the loan is partially repaid, interest shall be due on the maximum balance of the loan for that month.

Your outstanding balance will be reduced by the amount you have paid to the security address from one of the cards, so the interest would be less than 7 BTC at the moment.

Just to let you know I was able to get all of the coin to pay off the whole loan while bitcoin went under $3.

Good to hear, for my sake and that of TyGrr shareholders.

Once I do pay this off, it might be the most expensive pair of 6990's in dollar terms ever:)

Well, not if you got the bitcoins for under $3.

Just an update. The step-up date of the bond has now passed and the bonds will not yet be redeemed. Interest will now be paid as dividends in arrears at the end of each month at 2% of the value of the bond. That is, 0.002 BTC per bond.

Dividend for March had been paid. Note: It is paid is two lots (0.0002 BTC and 0.0018 BTC) because I wanted to make sure I had my calculation correct.

Stay tuned for an announcement regarding maturity of this bond. I should have further information within the next 24 hours. I suggest you do not trade the asset until the announcement has been made.

A trading halt feature for asset creators on GLBSE would be nice...

Once GLBSE 2.1 is released I'll be able to forcibly redeem the bonds. Holders may choose to wait until then if they wish to avoid the sales commission.
