If he's an early adopter he could manipulate the market. With 200k $ you do what you want, with 500k you're god. OMG i think he's the BITCOIN MANIPULATOR Grin Wink

The Bitcoin network protocol was designed to be extremely flexible. It can be used to create timed transactions, escrow transactions, multi-signature transactions, etc. The current features of the client only hint at what will be possible in the future.

First of all, even IF you reinvest all interest payments (many don't) it's closer to 3500% as he only compounds every 3 days.  For many of his clients, it's only 365% interest.  Borrowing USD to buy BTC is risky.  Consider the following situation:

Step 1. Borrow $20k from a friend.  Promise $30k
Step 2. Invest in about 3000 BTC @ $6.5
Step 3. BTC returns to $2
Step 4. Turn $6000 into $30k to pay back your friend

In an entirely plausible situation, you're 50% loan has just ballooned into a 500% loan, worse than many of the loans P@40 has already.  5% on a currency conversion is not unheard of, even for legit business.  It seems very likely to me that he could easily make 1% daily on his money.

I only offer this information because I beat you to the punch so their's no way you can knock me off the list :-P.
While no idea is perfect, some ideas are useful.
