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.

Happy days, is Vandroiy already in control of his well-deserved earnings?

… use the Vandroiy bet conditions, because they are clearly laid out and fine-tuned. If Vandroiy wins his BTC5,000, you pay me, if Vandroiy loses, I pay you. …

I accept your conditions. I'm betting 10,000BTC already in another thread however, although at the moment of writing this, 4995.89114457 BTC has been bet leaving me with 5004.10885543 BTC left to bet with. Name your bet please.

Let's leave it at BTC250 then. That's about my limit without escrow.

This is my offer. If you accept it, we have a deal.

Agreed. For my own accounting purposes I will add it to the same spreadsheet as I use for other betters of the betting thread, but I concede publicly that it is in fact a separate bet entirely and an exact mimc of the strict guidelines in Vandroiy and Pirate's bet. Good luck!

Time to pay up. I am sending my bitcoin address to you by PM.

I'm still curious why you made this hopeless bet. Care to explain? Did you get messages from the pirate that sounded so believable that you fell for them?

Curious to hear whether Matt paid you.

He wrote he will deal with his bets beginning on September 9th.

This makes at least some sense, as his other bets end on that day, so I will wait until then without throwing a tantrum. Smiley

Does anybody here know Matthew N. Wright (or the actual person behind that account) better than I do? He seemed like a different person some time ago.

That will be corrected when he will have paid out his bets.

Happy days, is Vandroiy already in control of his well-deserved earnings?

No, nanotube says he currently has no access to his offline wallet. Give him some time, I doubt he'd dump the WoT over 10k BTC. Wink

I'm more worried about _matthew_'s (Matthew's?) payment though. The bet with hgmichna does not run up to the 9th, but ended with nanotube's decision on this bet. Now, does he not have access to 250 BTC, or is he not paying "just because"? Both those explanations don't sound very reassuring given that he has a lot of bets timing out soon.

You can trust a pirate to pirate. Just as you can trust a thief to steal and a troll to troll. It's not whether or not they are a trustworthy person, but if you are smart enough to expect the right things from them.

You've got 5000 BTC coming to you and you're "worried" about 250BTC? That's....umm

The WoT is next to worthless now anyway. after all, pirate had the highest rating. Is he still an op in #bitcoin-otc? lol

That's not how you use it. This ain't Ebay, there is no "global highest rating". You have to check out *who* rated people highly, and it needs more time to let trusted users make a reputation.

It's trivial to spam 50 small accounts and have them all rate someone 10. Is the resulting 500-rating worth anything? Not really. But the WoT displays much more than that, and this is very useful and should become even more useful with time. Gribble also has a feature to find out how people you trust rated someone.
