I offer anyone, regardless of rank or post count, a 10TH "Masters Cub" cloudy mining contract completely for free and for as long as your signature is something similar(*) to this:
[url=https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=878387.msg9697654#msg9697654][color=orange] ▁ ▂ ▄ ▅ ▆ Cloudmining 101: how to avoid scams ▆ ▅ ▄ ▂ ▁[/color][/url]
Newbies who cant put links in their signature can use something like this instead:
> Most cloudmining companies are ponzi scams <
"Masters Cub" is operated by me, it is a perpetually cloudy bitcoin mining operation that pays out a theoretical 100% PPS
with zero fees
and automatically reinvests 100%
of your revenue in additional hashrate, using the best market rates available. So your hashrate will grow constantly. It does so forever, or for as long as you use this signature. The process is 100% automatic
, you dont have to do anything other than adopting the signature and post in this thread to start your contract. (that said, if you want to know how many TH your contract is worth at any point, you will have to do the math yourself).
Additionally, each month this campaign runs, I will select one post that I consider the "least useless post of the month"
that is carrying this signature, and award the person a 10 million satoshi (0.1 BTC) bonus
. The selection is completely arbitrary, and can be based on being funny, useful, creative, innovative or any other reason that makes me think the post stands out among this ocean of scams, shill and post-count-bump posts that we call "bitcointalk".
(*) Feel free to change the signature design in to something far more creative, as long as it points to the same thread.
Why do I do this?
Because I want to push back at least a tiny bit against the countless (cloudmining) ponzi scams that seem to appear on a daily basis. Their biggest tool is this very forum and the fact it allows renting signature space for ads, pays users per (nonsense) post and allows referral links even to obvious scams. I do not understand why forum adminstrators allow this to continue, as it results in a forum thats almost devoid of content while being inundated by meaningless posts, obvious shilling and non stop scams. Many of the substantive posters that actually contributed have long fled (if not, sold their account). If this is allowed to continue, soon there will only be scammers, scam shills, referral whores, and scam victims left. I dont pretend this effort will help a lot, but its better than doing nothing.
Am I serious?
Yes. I will award the 0.1 BTC each month, assuming there is at least one post worthy of consideration. Of course the cloudy mining contract value is rather questionable, but then so are most other cloudmining contracts, and at least on this one, you wont lose any money.
