That was a whole bunch of bitcoins. MIA 4 months. Last posts were all the way from August. Wonder if he knows he has a million dollars.

371,067.36 BTC @ 2.95 = $1,094,648.71

He's gonna have a nice surprise when he comes back then.

And he had a nice production rate too!  15k MH/s?  Dang...

Well, doesn't quite have $1M, since if he actually tried to sell them, he'd drive the price down to like $.25/BTC.

I was wondering the same thing.  I sent him a PM a while back but no response.  I think he wants to keep his identity a secret.

If so he hasn't done a very good job.

Perhaps, though I think yesterday MtGox did close to 160k in volume, with the price continuing to rise.  Perhaps he could dump a significant percentage of his holdings over a week's time...

He could slowly unload like 500-1000 a week and essentially give himself a decent paycheck

If he is a billionaire in a year in a half he will need to reside away from us jurisdiction and diplomatic influence or at least keep his fortune secret through offshore accounts.     By the time market value of btc represents $100 billion the us will have realized the threat btc represents to usd.

What if he died in a car accident? Whole economy has 370kBTC less...
But if he's alive, I'm pretty sure that he sold most of his bitcoins already.

Oh, I'm still alive and kicking.  Grin

Yeah, still have them, though like was said, it would not be possible to sell them all at once and become an instant millionaire.  No one is going to buy that many at once. I have kept my client running 24/7 since then though, managed to generate a bit more before the collective mining groups took over  Wink

Without the massive server farm I had going before, I'm just down to my personal desktop, so it's never gotten over the 371k since.

I do keep many, many backups though just in case  Cool

Can you explain how it feels to be a potential billionaire? Do you plan to buy a ticket to ISS? Smiley

You should probably consider setting up some sort of arrangement in case you die, perhaps setting up some sort of geekier version of the Nobel prize?

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

How about the X Prize for Immortality?
