It's a smart move. Avoid all the USA bullshit, it's not worth the trouble. People who want to still bet, very easily can. I'm sure someone will just post the betting addresses here. I'm sure someone will make a website that will scan the blockchain and show the results of bets.

The website isn't needed. And this protects them from any USA Govt bullshit. Less growth from users in the USA is a small tradeoff to avoid all the legal gambling BS.

To re-confirm, SatoshiDICE_PR is a legitimate account and the representative of SD. The announcement is legitimate.
Does it really change anything though? Can't a person still send a bitcoin to their addresses to play? One needs only a list of their addresses to keep gambling to ones heart's content.

The issue, as I see it, is that SDICE has been a dead-in-the-water asset for a few months now. The last thing they need is bad news.

In the past, I tried to be nice about my criticisms of SDICE's failure to grow as a business and capitalize on its leading position. However at this point, it's foolish to be optimistic or understanding.

I believe the management has been grossly negligent at the expense of its shareholders.

Maybe shareholders will get lucky and some casino will buy out satoshidice.com for one last payout, but I'm not holding my breath. I completely exited my position over the past couple weeks, and I feel relieved.

As somebody mentioned, this is exactly what GPG is for. Instead of wasting time on debating the legitimacy of a claim, a user name is not enough for announcements potentially affecting millions of dollars.

ThickAsThieves, I feel I am in the same boat as you...Apart from still holding onto my shares, but my original optimistic view of this operation has become quite grim. Over and over I'm watching horrendously poor management with little reason to expect any change... Is THIS meant to be the awesome news being unveiled this month?

It's been a couple of weeks now, but if Erik or the SDice PR could visit the Securities > S.DICE - SatoshiDICE 100% Dividend-Paying Asset on MPEx thread designated more for these matters...and read and respond to the posts since your last stop by, instead of ignoring them and letting the forum slide, that'd be great.

Peace

Are we sure this is Eric Voorhees behind this account and not simply another account taken over by a hacker?

I mean this does not sound like Eric Voorhees at all. Where is the bravado?

It would have been really nice if you guys posted that on your website today. I bet 3 btc, completely unaware of this and have received nothing back, nor a response from your support. Are you just taking the funds sent and running? What gives?

SatoshiDICE has no way to know from which jurisdiction a payment was sent.  The bitcoin network doesn't track, record or report that info.  Your wager is no different from anyone else's wager.

On the bright side, US players by default won't lose money playing SD anymore. Take it as a blessing in disguise.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Why? How could US players be prevented from using SD?

Could this be good news for the blockchain?
Just kidding!  Grin

Seriously all those "step backs" are legitimising the bitcoin value more and more. Gambling with bitcoin only should not be a problem in the future. Lots of opportunities for solid, legit companies should arise as this space is wide open.

This is the site I am hoping will bring the market away from amateurism, if they do not screw up with their app (when they decide to launch)

Sure, but how? By default US players can't access the website without using TOR, but I'm fairly certain they'll still be able to play.

It's called "covering their own asses". Nothing will change for US players as it's technically impossible (unless of course you go the route of constantly generating new 1sdice-adresses), but Voorhees will be able to say "Look, we TOLD them they're not allowed to play" when his door gets kicked in.

I'd just like to stop in here and say congrats to the dice team on their recent publicity.

It looks like you and exante hired the same marketing firm? 

The only question is, why have you not yet hired dooglus?

Just a cross-post for it's general relevance.

SDice really needs to hurry up and add accounts along side no account betting. That way they can have almost instant win/loss notifications, save on costs with bulk payouts, stop bloating the blockchain so much if people adopt this account shiz niz. Pretty much all other gambling websites (using btc) have done this, yet SD refuses to leave the dark ages of the crypo era.

SD needs, if they wanna stay competitive:
- Accounts / along side their current system
- New games, inclusive of their current game.
- Friendlier UI (It's still just a shit tonne of numbers on a screen)
- Chat features, both text voice and video for certain rooms/games
- BTC related advertisement's. (Yes we all hate ad's, but because Bitcoin is in it's infancy right now it's imperative that we give new business the ability to gain public eye to a community of people more susceptible to seeing value in that business. Extra revenue, along side supporting BTC growth is certainly not a bad thing. I would implore all large and successful Bitcoin companies to implement some sort of unobtrusive advertising block on their site, while allowing them to vet who they deem to be appropriate and charge on the same basis too.

If ANY of these suggestions get implemented I guarantee it will have a positive effect on share prices, SD usage and consumer enjoyment.
