[BernoulliTrial] Suppose Alice does not think the proposition P will be proven in the next year. She can place a bounty of 1000 bars onto P with an expiration at a block that should occur in a year, with the expiration address being one of Alice's addresses. If she wins (P isn't proven) after the block in a year passes she can reclaim the bounty. That really is not like betting since if Alice wins she only gets her original bars back (minus tx fees) and if she loses she loses her bars to whoever proved P. So this does not quite work.
