It's time to add me to your list. I've had a change-of-heart with regards to Pirate, and will be depositing in a pass-through.
1kBTC in an uninsured pass-through.

Add me to the list. Additionally, on GLBSE are BDK and BDK.BND which should be added.  Smiley

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

I'm not taking sides, here as I think Micon has over reached and has failed to back up his claims other than speculation, although he may well be correct that the risk is nowhere near sustainable.  Other than having some coin invested with pay.bc, I'm pretty agnostic about the issue (other than some points I made upstream).

That being said, what's the timeline on your bet?  As far as I can tell, it's just a bet that says it won't fail.  Are you saying it won't fail in X amount of time, or that it won't ever fail?  If it doesn't ever fail, will you be keeping your money in until it closes down for other reasons?  Otherwise, it seems like your money will be stuck forever.

Or, is this more of a rhetorical point?

Good question.  Had not planned that far ahead.  I do know I will be compounding until the interest rate goes down.  When that happens then I will reevaluate, maybe take some out, maybe leave it in - don't know yet.

Do you have a suggestion for a time line?

Micon seems to believe it will fail by the end of 2013.  Are you willing to keep all 10,000 in until that point?

what do you mean when you say things like "If it doesnt ever fail "

it absolutely has  to fail if you look at the numbers

if it keeps going on like this in less than 2 years all the bitcoins in existence will have been paid out in interest alone  INCLUDING the ones that havent been mined yet  

double any number every 3 months and see how fast you get to 22 million and you will soon understand why its impossible

   350,000 now
   700,000 in 3 months
 1,400,000 in 6 months
 2,800,000 in 9 months
 5,200,000 in 12 months
10,400,000 in 15 months
20,800,000 in 18 months
41,600,000 in 21 months
83,200,000 in 24 months .....

Maybe you're missing my point?  I said I was agnostic about the issue.  I was asking him in a rhetorical way.  If he believes it will never fail, then the bet as it is currently made reads as though he will never take the money out.  That's why I asked for a timeline.

There is a limited amount of H2O on Earth, but it ALWAYS going to rain without drastic environmental changes. Imagine that, limited supply of water can provide almost unlimited amount of precipitation with the right conditions.

In regards to bitcoins, they cannot and won't compound indefinitely, someone putting in 10k at some point will take out profits to enjoy them or put into something else, these bitcoins at some point will end up on exchanges, someone else will buy them and some of em' will again end up in BTCST, same with other coins. Assuming pirate's operation legit - this can go on indefinitely while he meets demand and causing short supply on exchanges which increases bitcoin price.

What has been claimed is that we will all get our coins back when he is done playing with them.


you are playing great today.  $80k into a ponzi (lulz at that claim / locked thread.  You know what says honesty and not a ponzi to me?  a locked thread)

just give him the coins and let him play then a random anon guy named pirate will just give them back after his coin playdate is over

k I'm in too plz PM me a hash

Interested in the picture.  When Pirate defaults will u tell me which one?

this is in it's final week or 2.

the mess will be fun to watch, it's like a train wreck in slow motion / can't look away but at same time feel bad for those in the wreck.  

Duality of man sir.

Witnessed. Now keep this idiocy in your own thread.

Where's the blockchain evidence? Please post the transaction, a screenshot of your BTCS&T account with balance and your logged in forum account open in another window, a picture of your screen when you took the screenshot and sign a statement with the sending address' private key that it's really you.

Anyone can claim a random amount of BTC with pirate... I have 3 million BTC with him! Roll Eyes

I agree with him completely that it shouldn't be in lending. There should be a section called "DEEP DARK HIGH RISK NO TRANSPARENCY THREATS TO YOUR MONEY". That said, unless you -know- what it is, you can't go around saying it's a ponzi. It's incorrect.

Not if it is obvious.

But there is another point here. Pirate is a criminal who should be punished according to the law. I think it is an obligation for all of us to work towards that and clean up our environment.

Wait, What ? Now pirate _IS_ a criminal ? Please for the love of justice show me your compiled evidence so we can bring this criminal to justice.

This is likely the same problem the USA have with conviction rates, Fuck evidence, just hang the guy.

Until then, please dig a hole and bury yourself.

I don't mind waiting till game over. It won't take long.

It would be nice though to know who he is. Currently only his closest collaborators seem to know him, if at all.

Hey assmunch, if you had bothered to actually do more than about 2 seconds of research, you would have found the posts about my mining farm, pictures and all.  You aren't the first troll to attempt to call me a ponzi. I've bought tons of gpus, bfl and other gear.  I hadn't replied until now, because mainly, you're a waste of my time.

Don't you guys love it when one guy admits he fell for scams and tries to convince everyone he can spot a scam? LOL, just LOL "I can see a scam because I fall for them" <--- Doesn't compute.

Micon is hilarious. Been following this thread closely trying to see some evidence of scam or ponzi but all I got was wikipedia links...

FFS, Micon, do yourself a favour and go play some poker or something.
