Bitcoin millionaire is betting on 2014 seeing massive resource shortages.

One good use for Bitcoin is to place bets. You can bet on just about anything.
I checked Bitbet today and saw someone had placed three new bets.
The three bets are on cattle prices going above 250 dollars, crude oil going above 200 dollar, and iron ore going above 200 dollar. Total betting size is 9 BTC, or 6300 dollar, admittedly not much. It has to be noted though that the betting structure tends to encourage people to place larger bets on the same position at a later point, when the outcome becomes more certain.
The bets the guy placed all point to the same address, where any profits will be sent:

This address previously received 14.150 BTC in a transaction, thus we know the owner is a millionaire. In all likelihood the owner of the address is the Romanian Mircea Popescu, who also owns the betting website in question and is described in this article as a billionaire. He may be related to Edward Popescu, who is listed by Forbes as a Romanian billionaire who manages his families estate.
