[BernoulliTrial] Suppose Alice does not think the proposition P will be proven in the next year but Bob things it will. Alice and Bob can both contribute 1000 bars for a 2000 bar bounty on P with an expiration at a block that should occur in a year, with the expiration address being one of Alice's addresses. If Alice wins (P isn't proven) after the block in a year passes she can reclaim the bounty (with an extra 1000 bars now). It still does not quite work as a bet because if a third party (Charlie) proves P within the time limit, then Charlie will claim the 2000 bar bounty. Unless Charlie and Bob are the same, Bob will not obtain the profit from 'winning' the bet.
