I think this might be where my coins went.

Xenland, Did you happen to ever play this game as well?

Thanks.
Oh yeah that brings back nostalgia, that game does... So yeah i'd have to say I have played it before maybe once or twice.

That game gave me 0.6 BTC when I had 0 in my wallet... I made a very, very high return on that 0.6 Smiley

Is there a way we can rules this out 100%?   I so thought I was on the right track Sad
No, but would 90% be good enough?

I already told you, the address you sent to was used by a client that had a unique transaction fee set up: 0.001 BTC/kb. That exactly matches GLBSE at the time. Continue trying to follow up with Nefario.

If a Bitcoin veteran can make this kind of mistake, something needs to be done to make the addressing foolproof.

Making anything "foolproof" just breeds more efficient fools.

Maybe a higher expectation of people to exercise a little bit of personal responsibility would be more productive.

It seems to me Goat has demonstrated the proper attitude in taking responsibility and helping us all to learn a valuable lesson.

But hey, I'm just weird that way,

Well bitcoin is not foolproof enough for my parents and it will never be for my grandparents. and yeah, i fucked up and I was multi tasking and very distracted.

The community here has helped me track it down to odds are GLBSE 1.0 so maybe I have a shot of getting it back.

if so that would be awesome. I did open a ticket about it at the request of nefario and I know he is busy and fail like this is not, nor should be his priority.



I hope your successful in getting your coins back.  Even the possibility says allot about the bitcoin community.

To make transactions more foolproof will ultimately take away the anonymity and privacy that is now inherent in Bitcoin.

In time there will be more mature services and new devices which will ameliorate error's like this, if one chooses to make use of them and therefore relinquish some privacy and anonymity.

anonymity and privacy?

the total lack of this is how people were able to tell me what I did 6 months ago!

Isn't that because the address you paid to had been made public by it's owner?

no, maged figured it out by using skills i lack.
Just to clarify, twobitcoins did most of the work. I just verified the information using a different method of blockchain analysis that required a deeper knowledge of clients and the protocol.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hello guys,

I have to say that it was really me the person who sent the 400 bitcoins to the address that Goat said.
I thought Goat was the kind of person I could really trust my money and as such I made a deal with him to purchase some of his bonds at an agreed upon pre-IPO price.

In order to make the reserve, I had to send the coins before the IPO so following his instructions I send my coins to the address he gave me. Although I planned to send higher amounts of money, fortunately I decided to send 400 BTCs first and wait for Goat's confirmation before sending the rest of the coins.

Following my plan I sent the first 400 bitcoins to him but two hours later I got a PM from Goat asking me to stop sending more bitcoins to that address. I did not know what had happened until I got another message from him. In the new message he said that he gave me a bad address, it was 100% his fault and he was willing to pay me back.

I fully trusted his word so despite this mistake I keep on making business with him, but this time sending the bitcoins to a new bitcoin address that he fully double check in order to be sure he could receive the coins.

Today Goat has successfully transferred the bonds I bought so he really kept his word.

I would like to give public recognition to Goat, as he has taken care of this issue and assume full responsibility for his fault from the very first moment.

As a bitcoin trader, for me trust is the only thing as valuable as bitcoin. As now Goat's reputation and trustworthiness is on the rise I am confident that he will recover from this loss very soon and make big money as people will really want to do business with someone like him.

Victor Escudero.

Showing the world the non-scam, community minded aspect of Bitcoin is stupid? Only if you're happy for Bitcoin to languish in it's current financial ghetto.

ps. maybe its a wallet at exchange.bitparking.com , should check with doublec
I checked the exchange and the address doesn't belong to that wallet. Would you have used any of the other exchanges I ran? (i0coin, ixcoin, solidcoin, etc). I think they were running about that time.

Actually, I think it's brilliant. I mean, obviously he can't recover the coin unless he addresses the community, and if it is found it'll be a win for the community as a whole and another confirmation that techies and geeks are far more honest and trustworthy than the financial elites that are presently running world monetary policy.

It's come down to a game of trust that fiat money is losing to algorithmic money. And for good reason, we can't just print more of it and give it to our buddies.

Fantastic! Is this the only example of a large sum of btc being returned after an accidental payment? Kudos to GLBSE.

Glad it all turned out so well.

Actually GLBSE is the only place where you can hope that they return your funds,and most likely this was Goat`s address, so shouldn't they do that themselves?

it is not in my glbse 2 account. i will have to check the 1 account. thanks for the help guys and i will keep you updated.
Old deposit addresses were one-use only (with Nefario needing to manually add repeat deposits).

In 2.0, I think you can reuse addresses.

How about GLBSE?

I found a reference to a 0.005 BTC withdrawal fee in this post.

Also Xenland uses GLBSE.

Goat, perhaps you sent the 400 BTC to your GLBSE deposit address?

congrats all for the great detective work, not obvious from only a 1.96 BTC. sent to the address months before & good to see a happy ending, kudos to GLBSE & to think that was nearly a 3,000 coin going awol - are newbies putting so much in to your PPT (I assume) wow & definitely invest some hashing power in vanity 1Goat... addresses
