(Closed, see message #2.)

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I run 3 Bitcoin ventures and I would accept capital to fund their expansion. I can talk about 2 of them. My first venture is a 24Ghash/s (as of today) FPGA farm. My second is the development and sale of a small number of prototype devices to remotely power on and off up to 36 computers, whose price will significantly undercut all commercial offerings by a large margin. Finally, my 3rd venture shall remain undisclosed.

I am prepared to make the following investment offer to the community:
- - invest 10 BTC minimum, 100 BTC maximum
- - I guarantee a return on investment of 5% per week (this should be reasonably competitive with pirate's obvious Ponzi and similar schemes...)

Anybody who is interested to invest should PM me. I will close this investment opportunity as soon as I have received enough funds to reasonably expand my ventures.

Thanks!

Update 2012-07-11: This investment offer is now closed. I will post a debriefing of the investment round a bit later... I wish I could say more right now, but I don't have time.

Please specify and elaborate on the second operation. Can we invest in the operations separately? Why mention the third only to tell us nothing?

Edit: What is your method to guarantee 5% weekly? Is that AVR switcher a working product ready to sell? Can we see it?

Average time between signing on to bitcointalk: Two weeks. Please don't expect responses any faster than that!

Venture #2: I have had a prototype, for my personal usage, running since August 2011. I disclose some technical details in this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=37451.msg481793#msg481793 The final version I am prototyping will reduce the # of controllable computers from 45 down to 36 to simplify the PCB and mechanical layout.

Venture #3: I do understand the secrecy around it may arouse suspicion; I just could not resist mentioning its existence. Perhaps one day, I hope to be able to talk about it without putting my competitive advantage at risk.

I might be interested. Would you verify your identity or do something that would reassure us, the lenders that you're not going to fold any day? Are you exposed to Pirate's investment scheme at all?

wow!

I see the following possibilities:

1. this is some kind of parody
2. mrb's forum account got hacked
3. it is time for me to retire coz it seems everyone in Bitcoin get's 50 times better interest (when non compounded) than old conservative me.

and honestly I have no idea which one it is.

I think its possible that some miners get too excited and borrow more than they should to expand capacity. ie., they aren't actually generating said returns and they are expanding quicker than they can afford. Maybe they don't realize that if they're going to speculate on the future price, its more profitable to simply buy them.

Ponzi is a slippery slope...

2. mrb's forum account got hacked

I'd also suggest signing the contract (first post) with your OTC GPG key.
