Hi Dooglus

Is there an update? 1 June is nearly here.

Just curious.

Hey.

I'm still here, and still plan on returning remaining WBX coins on 1st June.

I still didn't check the numbers, figuring that I'll only have to redo them if any more claims come in before the 1st.  That and I guess I'm putting it off because it's not very interesting.  But I'll get on it now and post an update.

I just checked the numbers, and if no more claims come in in the next couple of days everyone with an existing claim will get the remaining 25.3623% of their outstanding balance that they're owed.  Several valid claims came in after the initial 74.x% payout and have received nothing so far.  They'll be paid out 100% of the outstanding balance on June 1st, subject to new claims arriving in the next couple of days.

I'm going to be out of town for the 1st of June, and my laptop is also making nasty noises like it's on the way out.  But I don't foresee any problems with making the payouts.

+1 Dooglus.

Take 10% of the total amount I'm owed and keep it for yourself as a tip. It should equate to near ~$500. I appreciate your integrity.

When its all done and dusted, I'd appreciate a trust rating. I will do the same for you mutually.

Regards
Seal

Thanks a lot.  I'll do that.  Smiley

What's your OTC handle?  Or just rate me, and I'll rate you back.  Mine's in my signature.

I just realised I'm not 100% sure which account is yours.  I mostly don't have any information linking forum IDs to WBX accounts.

I picked the account where 10% of the owed amount was closest to $500.  Did I get the right one?

Other than that, I've paid everyone out, except for a few people who I'm still in email contact with regarding their claims.

Please post here or PM me if you don't think you've been paid out in full and I'll look into it.

Thanks for your patience in this, and for giving me time to work it all out properly.

Hi Dooglus,

I have now received everything that I was owed.   I have just sent you a donation as a small token of appreciation for your hard work and honesty.

I'll see what I can do about getting an OTC account and rating you

Thanks again!!

I think so, its been so long now I'm unsure myself of what was outstanding! I'm very happy with the outcome and have a tremendous amount of respect to you. I've left you a trust rating.

I know I won't be the only one to say that I'm happy this is all finally over.

Once I get my head around the WebOTC thing I'll leave you a rating on that too. I'd appreciate one too Smiley

... and a message to others. If you haven't already done so, I'd encourage you to tip dooglus. In a community that actively promotes anonymity through our new digital currency bitcoin, dooglus chose to do what he believed was right and I have a huge amount of respect for that.

Couldn't agree more.  I donated half a bitcoin.  I only had about $50 tied up with BTX at the start of this saga,  I kinda felt like it was quite fitting to give back an amount which was worth more than I was originally owed   Grin

Oops!  I had a PM this morning from a guy who was short around $500 on his payout.  Looks like I took the tip from the wrong guy.  Smiley

I've paid him out in full now, and you too Seal.  Guess I had the wrong account number for you after all.

mOomOo has brought it to my attention that newbies to OTC can't rate others until they themselves have been rated.

If you've been involved with this WBX claim process and want to rate me on OTC, please send me a PM with your OTC handle.  I'll rate you so you can rate me back.

I have got to check in on these forums more often!

Thanks Dooglus for seeing this through to the end. You represent the ideal of honesty we should all strive for in peer-to-peer finance. If Bitcoin truly breaks through to be used by the masses, it will be because of actions like yours.

I've sent a 10% tip your way and urge anyone else who has benefited from Dooglus' hard work here to do the same.

I will happily rate you on OTC... once I figure out how. Will message you separately.

Thank you very much!  Did you see the coins arrive in your wallet on 1st June and wonder what they were for?  Or do you have so many coins flooding in all the time that you just didn't notice?  Wink

I shall put your kind tip towards bankrolling my soon-to-launch gambling site.  If you have a minute, please come and help me test it.  I've had a few people there for days now running bots against it, and it seems to stand up well against that kind of use.  Now I could do with a few more users at a time.  It's currently running on testnet coins, not real coins.  You can get them free at http://testnet.mojocoin.com/ .

There's a chat tab on the site where you can tell me about all the problems you find...

Has anyone noticed that the wbx site has been updated to say they plan on reopening the exchange?    Would anyone who was part of the first shutdown ever trust their money there again?

I hadn't noticed, but on September 26th I received an email:

Hi Doug

Andre here it's been a long time since I've been in touch with you,  im deeply sorry for that. I would like to give Bitcoin another go and im asking for your help on a couple of issues with the exchange you built for me

1) I need to upgrade and change the bitcoin wallet to a new one.

2) Bitcoin conformations is not working in the current wallet.

If you can provide a step by step process it would be much appreciated

I can understand if you decide not to help me but its worth a shot as you built the exchange.

All the best
Andre

Sent from my iPhone

That's the first I heard from him for a very long time.  I had tried emailing him several times while trying to sort out the WBX mess and never got a single reply.  And now he contacts me out of the blue and calls me "Doug".  I didn't reply straight away, and then it slipped my mind until I saw your post about the site update.  I really don't know what to think.  I guess there are plenty of new Bitcoin users who won't have heard about the previous WBX incarnation...

That's a crack up.  Let's just hope he can't find the technical help he needs.  He must think that leaving his head in the sand for a year or two is long enough to make things all good again.

Also congrats on your sites taking off Dooglus!

The news says the exchange will not ask for any info from users:



Didn't it go tits up last time due to insufficient verification of user identities resulting in massive bank fraud, account freezes and confiscation?  How is not asking users for their identity docs at all going to help prevent exactly the same mess from happening again?

congrats on your sites taking off Dooglus!

Considering Andre was requesting the bitcoins you were holding last time it begs the question if money really went missing.
Thank god an honest person held onto them!
