Since I feel awful about this, I am going to give 100 free tickets to everyone*

(*This is a joke considering it wouldn't change your odds at all.)

Actually, that would change the odds. Pretend there is only 2 people in the raffle, I have 50 tickets, other person has 100 tickets. My odds of winning are 3:1.

You give us both 100 tickets each. I now have 150 tickets and other person has 200 tickets. My odds of winning are now 2.33:1

You're right. What about 10% across the board instead of 100 tickets?

Holy shit, can this get any more complicated? Note to future self: don't do BTC raffles.

How so negative?

I'd say Matthew is pioneering the way to Bitcoin raffles!

From this initial pilot project we will develop a protocol for future raffles.

By fair you mean wouldn't change the odds?

Because the last 3 blocks are taking forever.

My brain tells me the answer is no, but I'd have to run that by professor google.

It would unnecessarily complicate the raffle and drag it on for a lot longer. Sounds like fun.

It's not your fault. Our friends in the the rogue silent Dark Energy pool (85.214.124.168), who refuse to put any transactions into their mined blocks, are taking their sweet time. They did get blocks 171447 and 171448, though.

85.214.124.168

Thats the Spanish "thing"?

Did we ever figure out what exactly it is and what galaxy it came from?

EDIT: looks like it isn't what I thought it was, but I did find this, which is interesting:

My money is on it being a botnet.

EDIT2: The owner of this shouldn't be too hard to track down:

as you're going to be doing future raffles ( BTL Rigbox FTW  Tongue ) maybe have a look at how Bitlotto match their punter's bets to the winning number drawn from a combo of a specific blockchain & some specific date mega millions type lottery's winning numbers

I will shoot myself if astana, dareq or some other scammer ends up winning this.

What will happen if that is the case?

We would then have their shipping address and other personal information, and it would be winrar.

But what about the BFL Single? Will they receive that as well as a visit from a SWAT team & 9001 lawyers?

Also, we'd never know it was them.

Ok, now why'd you have to even bring her into this?
