So basically the lesson to be learned here is how do we want people to be nominated?

That's a good question. I can't be 100% sure either, but I was trying to implement a way (even if it is a bit difficult I admit) to make sure it was on the records here:

I also asked people there for their opinions on how to do it better or if it's even necessary. Let's see what they say!

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

Here's my take which in no way agrees, or disagrees, with Luke-Jr.

I donated 1 BTC to that endeavor, caring less what happens to the coin(s). It wasn't run as tight I would have liked it to be, but I'll assume he did his best. Prior to this, there wasn't an award thingy. Now there's possibly a second one in the works. Therefore, even if this is considered a total fuck up, something good has come of it. I feel that no major harm was done, but am also glad to see this thread, Luke-Jr.

As far as the Oscars is concerned, the very first one was considered a scam at the time. The best actor was robbed of receiving his award. He was taken off the list, although he was the best actor at that time and for years to follow. Care to give a stab of who that actor was? (question directed toward the reader and not at Luke-Jr specifically)


Email me at to send payment thanks Bruno.

Hell! I don't even know what I won. Donate it to Bitcoin100. PM me all that is being donated to Bitcoin100 so that I can match it.
