Bitcoin to top $600 before Aug 2016

Bitcoin to top $600 before Aug 2016


The price of one Bitcoin in USD will rise over $600 before Aug 2016 as per Bitstamp .

The bet will resolve early if it passes $600 before then.

Decision Logic

When the difference between a given "Yes" bet time and the event time is less than week, that bet will be refunded.

Should Bitstamp have failed or gone rogue, we will use Coinbase index.

@praine @etile @kolotoure77294 Just an FYI the 'Avalon' account is used by multiple moderators. That said, apparently what happened was that our mod panel can't refund all but 1 in a given time frame like in this bet; so we couldn't easily keep his bet in unfortunately, and for 0.03 (split between 26 users), we decided not to involve the dev team. I have added this to our feature list for future iterations. -Adam

Interesting challenge here... dealing odds swings, floating time events, and imminent outcomes. All I can say is: I'm so glad I lost and lost BIG!
praine 5:22PM, Jun 13, 2016 UTC
I agree with @kolotoure77294. Conditions were pretty clear.
etile 11:26AM, Jun 13, 2016 UTC
InflatableOrc knew that some Yes side bets can be refunded. InflatableOrc has made No bet with big time-multiplier. See the diffrence: "When the difference between a given "Yes" bet time and the event time is less than week, that bet will be refunded" and "When the difference between a given bet time and the event time is less than week, that bet will be refunded"

@Avalon But if InflatableOrc's bet had won, no-one would have been refunded and his payouts would have remained the same. He knew the situation (Bitcoin was close to 600) and the odds reflected that, he took a chance and lost - he shouldn't be refunded IMO.
Avalon 5:52AM, Jun 13, 2016 UTC
@goldend819 - we have determined we cannot keep InflatableOrc's wager active while others are refunded as his bet would have been made with a specific payout in mind at the time. If we are returning a materially-significant amount of wagers prior to his bet, his should be returned also. We've considered a case like this previously and determined it would set a dangerous precedent where wagers were kept open even though the payouts would have significantly changed for them.

@protus - bet outcome was ~23:20 UTC June 11. As per the terms set by the host the bet, all bets within 7 days were to be backed out (23:30 UTC June 4 or later). Your bet was made after this time.
protus 3:06AM, Jun 13, 2016 UTC
@etile So why was mine from 4:50PM, Jun 4, 2016 refunded? There were four others on Jun 4th that didn't get their's refunded?
protus 3:04AM, Jun 13, 2016 UTC
This bet was a real **** show...wasn't it?
praine 11:59PM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
I'd also like to say that what @topnotch said is very important, especially for the other @etile bets that are currently running. They only become true once they pass the price, not AT the price.
kolotoure77294 7:10PM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
@Avalon The bet says any bets within a week of $600 for YES will be refunded. So 600 happened 11th June, therefore all bets for YES from 5th - 11th June should be refunded if you follow the terms of this bet.
Avalon 3:54PM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
@sirlanka source? We see a close tick above 600 at 23:30 utc, which means the actual high would've been between :15 and :30.
Avalon 3:49PM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
@etile what source are you using for the June 4 date? We do not see anything close to 600 on June 4th
etile 3:29PM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
Incorrect payouts, moderator notified
etile 3:27PM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
all Yes side bets after 4th June are refunded
praine 11:42AM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
Typical sri lanka trying to make a quick buck right before it hits. Read the description next time.
kolotoure77294 11:29AM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
@sirlanka Read the terms: "When the difference between a given "Yes" bet time and the event time is less than week, that bet will be refunded." ___ Therefore all bets after 4th June are refunded.
sirlanka 9:53AM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
@Avalon : @etile and @topnitch are correct. Price reached 600 at 23:40, and over at 23:41 GMT. All of my bets were made before this
topnotch 9:03AM, Jun 12, 2016 UTC
The resolution "2016-06-11 23:40:00 597.01 600 597.01 600" is off by a minute. At 23:40:00 BTC reached $600.00 on Bitstamp. It went above $600 one minute later. The conditions "rise over $600" and "passes $600" are not true at $600. They become true above $600, i.e., $600.01 or higher. In this case this doesn't affect the final outcome. In other case it could make a difference.

I really want to see No win.. hang in there guys! :P
Jamphone 12:56AM, Jun 7, 2016 UTC
This one may be close to over...
praine 7:57AM, Jun 4, 2016 UTC
Or we can win it, then it can blast past the threshold. I prefer that option better. :P
