TYGRR.BOND-B would have made its obligated dividend payments through GLBSE if the TYGRR.BOND-B holders received 0.008 BTC in the period the contract specified. Like I said before 0.008 BTC does not equal 0.00799999 BTC. That is like if you bought something from me in a parking lot but dropped the money into a storm sewer before it reached my hand. I did not receive the money so you did not pay me.
It's more like I asked you to pay me $1000 via PayPal, you do just that and I end up with $970 in my account because of PayPal fees. I still should deliver the product even though I didn't get $1000.
I am not a cheerleader for either the LONG or SHORT contracts and I think the contacts are throughly written. All the information of missing a 0.00000001 BTC had been publicly disclosed. What is basically happening is that people that buy a LONG bond are going into contract with the people that bought the SHORT bond. I am only a middleman holding the funds and paying them out. I am only doing what the contract says.
I believe the contracts were vague at best about this. It is your responsibility as a middleman to fairly interpret the contract and contact relevant parties if a potential issue arises. I find it hard to believe you didn't foresee this would be controversial.
I am sure if I broke the contract and paid the LONG holders then the SHORT holders would be furious as well.
I honestly doubt that. I'd like to see the SHORT holder who can say with a straight face that crediting SHORT instead of LONG was fair.
If the SHORT holders think this is unfair to the LONG holders then they are free to send the money back to the LONG holders.
It is not public knowledge who owns bonds. You as an issuer have indirect knowledge of this via the buyback feature, and it is your responsibility to make proper use of it.
Besides, non sequitur. Believing something is unfair doesn't mean you should opt to send your money to strangers.
Edit: Just because GLBSE shows .0079999 can we confirm that is the amount that went into shareholders account and is not just a reporting error? If they were in fact paid the full amount like I suspect they were, you owe me some BTC.
No such luck, according to my understanding of GLBSE it is indeed true that only .00799999 was received.
