awt[asciilifeform]: $ticker btc usd
bitbot[asciilifeform]: Logged on 2022-12-12 14:54:40 awt: I suspect Bankman will also be prosecuted.
awt[asciilifeform]: billymg: had heard some things in a twitter space. Of course now various accounts are saying it was "all part of the plan" to prevent him from testifying in congress.
billymg[asciilifeform]: i don't know how 'planned' it all was, but i also don't believe gensler is suddenly on the side of the people in this
awt[asciilifeform]: billymg: yes his "pro btc" image is a bit too carefully curated and his own words on the subject are quite circumspect.
phf[asciilifeform]: 􏿽doesn't need to be "part of the plan", could simple be the case of "barbara, yes, it's me, yes, it's bad, it's real bad … i know you've been following the news, we can't sweep this one under the rag, sam really messed up … look nobody's talking prison time but sec is up my ass
phf[asciilifeform]: 􏿽too, they are looking into the whole thing" etc
awt[asciilifeform]: Certainly a lot of cya going on. I like the theory that sdny wants to get him to turn on others - whomever they may be.
asciilifeform suspects the forum fauna who 'they're taking him to the epstein gallows' -- prolly correct
signpost[asciilifeform]: yup, asset got off his leash.
asciilifeform: signpost: imho not even obv. phakt that 'got off leash', possibly simply comes a time to feed weak sled dog to the others
asciilifeform: near as can tell w/ naked eye, sbf wasn't 'brightest bulb at home despot', genuinely thought that his spontaneous uplifting was a permanent thing, 'too big to fail'(tm)
dulapbot: (asciilifeform) 2022-05-10 asciilifeform: lizards -- connected directly to printer,brrr; sublizards -- can run outta dough, but pick up phone, get moar (for so long as playing ball)
asciilifeform: ( in ru, this kinda event is referred to as a 'sliv' -- 'flushing', as in turd. at one time happened semi-regularly. )
signpost[asciilifeform]: who knows, but the guy had WEF, Clinton, et al, blessing, so I imagine they wanted more of a buterin out of him.
signpost[asciilifeform]: "gave girlfriend-ceo of my company B the money from my company A" says to me that too much stimulant went up his nose, started coloring outside the lines.
signpost[asciilifeform]: at any rate, may tether explode next, and then ethereum, inshallah
asciilifeform: binance starting to look like possible 'next', supposedly mass withdrawals nao
signpost[asciilifeform]: ah yes, binance also
signpost[asciilifeform]: such a proliferation of scammers this round.
asciilifeform: would have moar interesting consequences if gox users had tendency to flee to somewhere other than $newergox
unpx[asciilifeform]: phf, signpost, I was been very unlucky before.
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-12-12 16:19:20 phf[asciilifeform]: and in something complete different, is there enough theoretical machinery in the protocol at this moment for there to be a self heal, when peers switch ips or otherwise go down
unpx[asciilifeform]: ...I have been...
unpx[asciilifeform]: Currently connected to 2 peers of my 5 peers.
unpx[asciilifeform]: I should gather together Manul Laphroaig's writings
asciilifeform in AT still sees 'no packets received' from unpx
lobbes[asciilifeform]: in other news, my station should now be up to spec in terms of silently rejecting all icmp packets. [crib notes updated][]
