asciilifeform: iirc the classic one already 100% unrolled, but lessee what verisimilitude comes up with.
asciilifeform: 'Coinbase, in fact, has a regulatory moat as they were the first to work closely with regulators and hence have licenses to operate in all states in the US...' << lolyes

asciilifeform: 'Coinbase has larger ambitions beyond being the best crypto consumer app for their users. They are the go-to custody solution for the largest institutions and are building out a full suite of services targeting banks and funds...' << very... uh... promising, lol
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-10-29 14:49:35 asciilifeform: will be interesting to witness the 1st (publicly admitted) 'we have no idea where the coinz went' carlforcing
asciilifeform: the ~2.2m$ q2 revenue is imho surprisingly small, considering it's a near monopoly
asciilifeform: ( are there any remaining goxes which officially work in usa ? )
asciilifeform: esp. considering that, per the linked site, 'Coinbase had 68mn verified users at the end of Q2’21...'
asciilifeform: ( i.e. avg. rev. of 3-4 cents / qt. per user ?! )
asciilifeform: '67% of deposits in June 2021 were below a $100' << lolredditards
asciilifeform: iguess this explains!
asciilifeform: 'Brian Armstrong’s medium post on re-aligning company culture, where he sought to curtail activism and political debates within the organization. This caused quite a bit of a stir within the tech industry, and led to 5% of the organization (60 people) eventually taking take up his offer of an exit package, leaving the company' << lulzy, missed this story
asciilifeform: ( what sorta 'activism' was it ? )
asciilifeform: 'gentlemen, no fighting! this is the war room!'(tm)(r)('strangelove')
asciilifeform: at any rate, seems obv. to anybody with 3 neurons to rub together that coinbase is simply 'lean' usg.spyagency masquerading as a gox.
asciilifeform: effectively part of the 'new, well-managed' modernized distributed nsa.
asciilifeform wonders, if somehow classical nsa went 'ipo' , what its stock price might be.
asciilifeform: 'There have been concerns that a lot of insiders have sold their shares.' << lolx2
asciilifeform: 'Also, if the number of scams spiral out of control, requiring too much technical knowhow to avoid, it would become unfeasible for the average user to be on-boarded, and future growth of the ecosystem would be severely curtailed' << might die of laffter here
asciilifeform: ( as if already ~100% of the 'space' didn't consist of scamola ? )
mats: page19 chart is interesting
mats: and page 66
asciilifeform defo didn't expect, 10y ago, that 2021's leading gox would have revenue of just ~33 btc / qt.
asciilifeform: mats: what was interesting on 66 ? the usg shitcoin ban ? doesn't seem to have materialized ? (may be simply to drum up publicity)
mats: well yeah, its stuck in congress
asciilifeform: mats: asciilifeform hasn't followed subj in realtime, but the tradition is that a 'draconian' item is proposed, and then watered down version is passed
mats: prison sentences for mixing and shitcoins, regulating smart contracts as futures through cftc, paving the way for cbdc usd
mats: it hasn't been watered down in the months since unveiling
asciilifeform: mats: i recall a 2020 trial of a supposed mixer operator, but possibly that was a state thing (florida?)
mats: the senator who intro'd it is said to have been heavily guided by yellen, who is now head of treasury after service at the fed
mats: an interesting transition
asciilifeform: unsurprising imho
asciilifeform: at some pt could expect that perpetrating a permissioned shitcoin will Officially require permission from usg dept. of coinbase. (unpermissioned shitcoins will happily ignore, as always)
asciilifeform: y'know, like issuing penny stocks req's Official green light from usg ministry of scamola currently.
asciilifeform: usd itself being the archaetypical permissioned shitcoin, difficult to see why the perp would allow unrestrained competition.
asciilifeform: the lulzy bit imho is that evidently (in fact as mp alleged back in the day) the ~whole shitcoin 'market' consists ~entirely of redditus.
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-11-01 15:59:30 asciilifeform: '67% of deposits in June 2021 were below a $100' << lolredditards
asciilifeform: ( and, by implication, that very little % of actual btc ever touches a gox. )
dulapbot: (trilema) 2017-07-15 asciilifeform: or how about the raging idiocy of, e.g., nonprintingspace char.
dulapbot: (trilema) 2017-07-15 asciilifeform: dun forget to insert nonprintingspaces between the chars for good measure, for potentially INFINITE bytewise-permutes mapping to SAME VISUAL STRING
