What are you doing if you'll never reach the 100.000 BTC limit ?
If it would truly take too much time, I guess I would have to lessen the amount to what I have at that point.
A casino lottery system and an anonymous entity using an anonymous currency online is vastly different. A public business is held to much more scrutiny and if they cheat their customers, they are ruined for life (whereas a person around here can just create a new account the new day after a scam like nothing ever happened)
True, still it is not impossible.
It would be some more work but can be done.
For an internet scammer, 100,000 BTC (Or roughly $6,500 USD per todays standards) is definitely worth the hassle. I'm not accusing you of anything yet, but I'm just stating that it's not pennies and there are a lot of deceitful people that would go for an opportunity like that, especially when they can disappear tomorrow without a trace.
There are scams out there that indeed involved less money than this amount.
But if we want to use bitcoins as a currency for everything, this kind of things will happen in the future too. And the directory with ratings is a nice idea to prevent scams, people could than use some kind of verified logo on their site witch links to their profile, so people can see the trustworthiness of a site. But how you check something like my idea? The only thing I can proof the trustworthiness of BitPixel is by paying, but till I sold every pixel, I just can't proof that. If it is a scam, it's far to late by then. If it's not, people who would use it, didn't do it because the chance of it being a scam.
100,000 is more than 2% of all the Bitcoins currently in existence.
At this point yes, till the time I sold every pixel probably it will be less %
It could easily take a year to get them all, and that's fine, don't forget it is advertising space I sell, so it would be less effective if all pixels where sold within a week. There will be less interest in visiting the site and people get there ads viewed and clicked when everything is sold and the big jackpot is gone. And yes it is a big amount, but that is also the purpose. It should be the big jackpot, the euromilions,the lotto,de staatsloterij,... under the bitcoins. Millions would be pretty impossible, still I want it to be something you can dream a little bit of. The kind of amount you would think "damned, I wish I won that, could do some nice things with that money"
But I guess it won't work if people indeed don't trust it, something how sad for me it is, I can understand.
So any suggestions on the trust thing would be really great.
I could off course also do a lottery every 1000BTC or 10.000BTC, would defeat a little bit my idea of giving a big jackpot, but that way people could see faster I just give the coins and if not I would only get away with 1000 or 10000 coins. In total it would be still 100.000, they're would be only a lot more winners. Would be only unfair to those who entered first, they would have a lot more chance of winning.
And last but not least, if you just want some good advertising space, it still is the deal of your life of course
