So say I win 80k clam and then go try and sell 10k of it, what happens to the price and what is the max payout of JD now?
It really depends on how and where you sell it.
If you dump it on an exchange, the price drops to about 10% of the current price. You'd have to be pretty silly to do that, but you could if you wanted to. People have dumped large amounts on the exchange before in anger trying to destroy the market. All that happened was a bunch of people got to buy some cheap CLAMs and the price recovered.
If you win 80k CLAM the max profit doesn't change much at all. Investors only risk 0.5% of their total effective investment, so the max profit would go down by 400 from 81.3k to 80.9k. If you won another 80k then a bunch of investors would be margin called and the max profit would drop significantly.
You can't trade any reasonable amount of clam for Bitcoin.
What's a reasonable amount of CLAM? The poloniex exchange is showing 4700 CLAM traded for BTC in the last 24 hours. Is that reasonable? I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. I don't have any trouble trading CLAM for BTC at all. People are almost always happy to trade it at the market price off-exchange because that way they avoid fees and slippage.
It's not even worth mentioning as a currency to use for gambling unless you are talking in the same sense of Zynga chips or Pokerstars play money.
And yet here we are, mentioning it. Do you have any real points? CLAM is clearly used on gambling sites and is working as intended. It's nothing like Zynga or Pokerstars money.
So PRC is the highest as someone could win 182BTC and trade it instantly on Bitstamp.
BTC is more easily exchanged for other currencies than CLAM is of course. That doesn't mean that 182 BTC is worth more than 80k CLAM. It would probably take you a while to find buyers for 80k CLAM, but I would be surprised if you didn't get at least twice as much as 182 BTC for it. I recently escrowed a private transaction in which someone bought 10k CLAM for 65 BTC. The price hasn't moved much at all since then. At that rate 80k CLAM would sell for 65*8 = 520 BTC. Even if they only got half that they would still be getting more than the 182 BTC max bet at PRC.
Saying at the current price is warping the reality of the situation no matter how you look at it. Most trading happens on exchanges; the one minute blocks makes the process quick so I don't imagine people would lose much stake doing so.
I would get into this with you, but:
16:54  ricky
the fact that he is arguing with me, a self proclaimed idiot about his max profit is laughable
so I guess I won't bother. Needless to say you're wrong.
