Vandroiy is suspiciously quiet these last couple days. Cheesy I think he is sweating buckets, as he has finally figured out what is going on.

Why would he be sweating if neither party is keeping the winnings?  Roll Eyes

Thanks for letting me know you're devoid of humor and needs to be ignored.
You should change your avatar to

because i think you misunderstood the character you intend to display completely. But hey, at least you put the entire picture into the thread again.

Why sweat when he is winning almost a year early? Seems like a good thing.

He goes on vacation, only coming back for settling the bet in september...he even pretends not to be much interested in the various reason for delaying the dissolution
of BCST. (watch thread of how to recognize a ponzi)

Me is very fascinated by the funny fireworks right to begin Cheesy

Cheers Zyk

P:S: could someone explain to me how payout of betsofbitcoin is calculated in the end?

Why should Vandroiy be sweating if he has always been perfectly sure he will win the bet? I can assure you, he is not sweating at all.

I think the "fireworks" will not be very funny. Those with a brain knew all along what will happen, and the others will lose their money and disappear from the bitcoin scene, I hope. That is the only way to get rid of all those scams.

I do hope, however, that the worst scammers will be caught and punished. After all, we have a civilization to defend. Smiley If that does not happen, then we would be assured once more that the world is a madhouse.

Note also that we are just watching another shakeout in the bitcoin market, which will again become more stable after this, fortunately.

Even Patrick Hernatt thinks that pirate was doing a viable buiseness, 7 % weekly return on your capital is to be attained selling stuff for example while working...

of course pirate has not the stature to stay at the helm of bitcoin community even as he was and is an fantastic actor, are new visions now breeded or will

the angloamerican spirit to conquer by sword and speculation be replaced with some visionarys?

Still i don´t understand how the payouts of betsofbitcoin are settled...no concrete info in there.....

Agreed, as long as its not put into effect pirate has another 10 days left to avoid a cut in his profit margins by 5000 BTC....

It doesn't cut into his profit. Why should the pirate even think about a bet he intended to lose all along?

How do you know what pirate's intentions are/were?

Because they are so obvious.

They may not be obvious to someone who believes he can get rich by handing over his money to some anonymous guy who promises 3,300% interest, but they are obvious to me and to you. We just have opposite intentions. I would like to see you serve a jail term in the cell next to pirateat40.

I don't see you in Matthew Wright's thread, making easy money.  Why is that?

Hard to bet when you have no money you can lose.

Is that the one who offers bets, but only up to BTC100?

Maybe is just the OP the one which is off topic Grin

By the way, hopelessly trying to bring the thing back on rail again, I liked the securities idea, I may have bought some of those Wink

So, do I understand this right? it doesn't matter who wins? the 10k coins are going charity, regardless, right?

If so, I nominate that some of funds get donated to the Family Literacy Centers, LLC Its a registered non-profit organization/charity that donates time and money to those that need help with literacy. (with the help of computer programs and one-on-one tutors). www.flcinc.org

I donate a lot of my time to this organization, I think its a worthwhile cause..

Thanks,

AR

Nope, just the opposite. Nothing will go to any charity, under any circumstances.

Pirate said he would donate, but he also always knew he would never win this bet, so no charity there. The whole bet was a public relations maneuver by pirateat40. Vandroiy tricked him into offering the bet, and pirateat40 offered it to avoid losing face. He offered it also, because he did not believe that anybody would stand up against him with any significant bitcoin amount. He was mistaken and had to pay.

Pirate could still win if he pays out to all investors from my understanding of the terms.
