I'd love to see any of the sides of the ponzi-vs-legit discussion swallow their own hats Cheesy
Within two weeks, either Pirate will have paid everyone back, he'll have disappeared, or he'll still be stalling for time. At that point, it should be obvious even to those who are willfully blind.

+1  Joel Katz.  My man right there.  Stays on point, no personal insults.

1)  Some1 PM me a GPUMax account.  buyer or miner.  Screenshots also plz.

2)  If in addition to sending him $1M+ USD worth of BTC you also put Pirate is in control of an extremely large amount of hashing power I'm going to be pissed at you guys.  Holy shit the 2nd one could be worse than the 1st for Bitcoin...

someone on Team Anti-Ponzi please explain GPU Max for me so I don't need to read the 100+ pgs.  I don't care if every shill-troll sweating their "skin in the game" comes here and tells you otherwise, some1 like Vandroyj plz explain to me exactly what this is, how much of it Pirate controls, how much of the total hashing power is here, if he could 51% the chain, etc.

My possible explanations for GPUMAX are
1) he is laundering his own bitcoins - so they won't be dirty when he cashes out of the ponzi
2) he is laundering other people's bitcoins (eg. Silk Road)
3) he is running a legitimate business/giveaway (paid out of his own pocket) to gain reputation so as to be able to run an illegitimate business

Don't day trade.

Perhaps you should learn about PM's. If you want to talk to vandroy, you should pm him.

Now you'll make yourself ridiculous until the very last coins he will return to his lenders, won't you?

It's a coin laundry that exchanges old coins (at least some clearly coming from BS&T) for freshly minted ones from various pools, paying some extra for it.

It can be used as a smoke-screen to hide activity and as a source of untraceable coins.
oh wow, can we get an asshat or dishonest or something tag for this guy?
Perhaps you'd like to explain what other use there is for GPUMAX these days, then, given that all of the proportional pools have switched to hopping-proof payout schemes.

So the argument has changed from "I don't know so ponzi" to "I don't know so coin laundry" ?

There are still five proportional pools, and all being merrily hopped with hashrates between 500 and 1500 Ghps. However, afaik GPUMAX can't be used for pool hopping.

So, getting back to my previous comment: GPUMAX can also be used to .....

Micon,

I was going to just tell you how GPUMAX works but this should be a lot more fun for everyone:

You should start a whole new thread about GPUMAX, probably over in the mining forum.  

Then we can all try to explain it to you and you can ignore everyone and just scream SCAM SCAM SCAM for another 50+ pages.

However, you may have to think up something new as you will have a harder time with the old worn out Ponzi angle this time since there are no deposits involved.

However, good news!  There are a lot of similarities to BS&T.  You can use these similarities to prove it must be a scam of some sort or another, since, as we all know, similarities always prove equivalence:

They are/were both run by the same person!
Both have/had a large very satisfied customer base!
Both have/had a waiting list of people begging to get accounts!
In both cases pirate has found a way to make money and you have not!
In both cases pirate wants to keep what he is doing to himself!
Both have/had a simple, yet effective, minimalistic web interface.
Both of them actually work/worked and produce great results.
In both cases the Bitcoin community is being used.  That is, they are not the end customer, just very well paid participants in the business.
In both cases the end customer is a huge mystery!

OK, that should be enough to get you going.  I will let you know of more proof as I find it.

See you over in the mining forum.

Flame on Micon!


Your friend, BurtW

Shill.

Doubt it. Miners would all need a custom client. Does GPUMAX force miners to use a custom client?
