Teared and a reason to jump out of bed can only be given by zykloogish wispered in your ears Wink

Thanks for you efforts to entertain, whats written in between those lines

Good morning and a "going to get better" for both of us

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.

Do you mean bets on whether the pirate can be caught or not?

Well, a bet that someone will put a price on his head would be, essentially, a price on his head.

I would avoid doing something like that, just in case he does get hurt over this. Don't want to get blamed.

The only thing worse than a scammer, is a scammer that taunts and insults you after taking your money.  What an utter prick.

I wasn't particularly serious, and had no real intention of place or accepting bets. We'd first have to establish the odds on us knowing the actual identity & location of pirate, which seems very unlikely. Seems unlikely that the individual who went to Vegas to meet the large lenders would have been anything other than a hired actor.

IMO, the price for the wallet(s) & fiat cash would be considerably higher than the price for a (mostly useless) pirate head. I'm not sure we've established how much actual money there might be to recover.

Considering that people who went to Vegas to see Pirate were not into the joke, I don't think that guy was an actor. If he was, he had to be introduced by Pirate to workings of this scam, be familiar with forum personas, be familiar with Bitcoin, cryptography and computer technology in general (Pirate is an IT guy, mind you). If he wasn't primed and well prepared, somebody surely would notice. You have his face, so what? Pirate's location (assuming is a correct one) is well known, his details are well known, $5m is missing and all you get is nerd cry and lawyer threats. By now he could move somewhere else within the US if he is not really trying, or is sipping pina coladas in Acapulco with new identity and fake beard.

One thing still unclear to me (assuming it was indeed a scam) is why he hasn't severed all communications and just went poof.

Because any big money lenders who could potentially take action are either privy to info that no one else has or are just still convinced by his presence that they will still get their money back.

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

Because he has so far always been able to confuse and delay everybody. He may still need time to launder money by means of some mining operation (GPUmax?).

I'm amazed that people are still using GPUMax. Even you were getting value for money, wouldn't you feel morally obliged not to use it?

Pirate needs to finish his laundry. Don't bother him.  Tongue


When will the bet end? (Or is it over already?)

It's over, as of a few days ago when two weeks had passed without withdrawals being processed. Vandroiy won obviously.

I think I'm about the only large account that at this point thinks it was a scam or he just ran off with the money. I assume this because I keep getting sent messages like, "Don't call pirate names, you are going to hurt his feelings!!"





I think pirate is actually a member of the [img=http://www.hubculture.com/]http://Hub Cult[/img]

This is the first long thread I've read though on this forum and I must say....

 Cool drama!


And why are people betting on if this guy is gonna pay?  He's not.  Why would you bet that a con-artist is going to have a change of heart.  People don't change without something making them... Unless someone finds him and puts the hurt on him, he's not going to pay.  Simple.  Now give me all you're bitcoins....

...for science.
