So, does this mean that since Pirate was HONEST enough to LOSE the bet, that he will remain an OP in the #bitcoin-otc IRC channel ?

This concession should definitely help boost his OTC ratings as well, as he was completely honest in regards to the bet. He deserves +10 Ratings from EVERYONE.

....it only makes sense, right ?
Well he did pay... (the bet)
No, the escrow that both parties put their money into 56~ days before the bet was ended paid the bet. ;p

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack

Splitting hairs.  Also he did concede to nanotube (rather than throwing up technicalities)

According to nanotube, pirate conceded the bet in private conversation.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

BUT.... did he get his ass booted out of #Bitcoin-OTC, or at least lose his OP status there ?

Considering the Press he's getting currently and the fact that he doesn't seem to have a response to any of it, or any defense that anyone knows about - he should pretty much be 'dead in the water' in any respectable corners of the Bitcoin Community.
If not, then this community as a whole has more problems than can be repaired and should be considered ruined.

Why should he? he still has a +189 rating. Wink

No, but seriously, if that number doesn't tank when/if he fails to pay to everyone's satisfaction, I think you're right, and we need to start from scratch.

I have caught him in enough lies now to know for a fact that he is 100% officially FULL OF SHIT.

Dead Man's Switch...GIMME A FUCKING BREAK. Where was that Dead Man's Switch 2 weeks ago, when this Scam fell apart ?

It's also nice to see him still making threats in IRC. He's the man, he's got all the power  Roll Eyes

Maybe you need a sarcasm detector?
I just liked the idea, since it would give additional reasons to many to end his life.

As if anyone actually needed more incentive. Dude is probably the most hated person in Bitcoin right now. If I had any money in this fiasco, I'd be pissed.

I'm really stunned by the high values of BTC bet on Pirate's payout. Waiting for the announcements of BTC put out on Pirate's head Tongue

Anyone want to place bets on this? I'm working up some odds, both on the amount and the actual event.

Nah. Easy come, easy go Wink

I actually need to be pissed off about something, otherwise, what's the point in getting out of bed in the morning ?
