mircea_popescu: but i mean, a serious, explicit, inquisitive piece like if you were writing a physics paper.
kakobrekla: what is it down
thestringpuller: i thought mp said "like writing a physics engine"
mircea_popescu: it's kinda funny tho because unique among literate people americans have spent a century or maybe even two in the firm belief that their government is like... good etc. paying their taxes, trying to do what policeman says etc.
mircea_popescu: this is a strictly american phenomenon, unheard of anywhere else, from france to morocco and from russia to iran
kakobrekla: ;;later tell benkay is ok now
gribble: The operation succeeded.
kakobrekla: jurov i dont remember what i found it
kakobrekla: but unix timestamp ftw
MJR_: what the fuck is wrong with people who make public policy?
MJR_: instead of actually just letting them pay the price that they say they would pay, we take the word for it and set a rate? how does that make any sense
MJR_: apparently the swaps market is also rigged like LIBOR
MJR_: well, that is not surprising
MJR_: but i just can't believe that no one actually does anything about it
mircea_popescu: somehow magically the bet submitter picked the exact spot where it'd be contentious.
MJR_: like...if i went to the supermarket, and they did a survey asking everyone there how much an orange would cost me...instead of letting us just bid on the orange or w/e
mircea_popescu: but this is more democratic.
mircea_popescu: and less capitalistic.
mircea_popescu: both these are good things. especially for people who need beatings, know they need beatings, want to get their ass beaten raw.
MJR_: lol
MJR_: its also funny cuz they are really DP'ing everyone
MJR_: let's cheat and fix the interest rate...
MJR_: and then let's cheat and fix the price it takes to switch from variable to fixed rate
mircea_popescu: then people want banks to like bitcoin
MJR_: how many other ways can you add corruption to a loan
mircea_popescu: yes dude, totally. they'll love bitcoin, where they have to come to me with that nonsense and be shown the door
mircea_popescu: they love this idea, pls moar.
MJR_: well..."banks" is not a great word...there are banks and then there are banks
MJR_: its not a monolithic structure...
mircea_popescu: this is very true.
MJR_: but, once you are in the club, then you have no worries
mircea_popescu: on the other hand, i'm already buffing my cameras and mics for that glorious moment five or maybe three years down the road
MJR_: hehehe
MJR_: gonna be fun
mircea_popescu: when random anon bank ceo/vp/etc comes to bitcoin assets to start w/e project
mircea_popescu: and i go are you in the wot ? gtfo.
mircea_popescu: come back 1 yr.
kakobrekla: hehe
kakobrekla: we all dreamin.
mircea_popescu: and he's gonna be all whiny and i'm gonna be all dude, we've had this interdweeb nonsense for 3 or 5 years by now.
mircea_popescu: stfu and do whart you're told.
mircea_popescu: and so he's going to dig up the old protest threads on btctalk and bitch about how im a gypsy racist
mircea_popescu: and then our victory will have been complete.
mircea_popescu: now don't any of you trolls quote this discussion then until after i'm done making teh banker my cockpuppet.
MJR_: hehehe
MJR_: ewwww, you want a banker for a cockpuppet?
mircea_popescu: metaphorically speaking.
MJR_: lol
MJR_: i know of course
mircea_popescu: i have a 10 foot cock, i can stick it into banker
mircea_popescu: a little
mircea_popescu: at the tip
mircea_popescu: speaking of bankers, anyone have any favorite burlesque performers ?
mircea_popescu: i'm going to do like l'oreal etc and have a mpex image chick.
pizzaman1337: this is why I have logging turned on
MJR_: yes
MJR_: are we going to have the website to archive all of this?
MJR_: hmmm...what if we put everything from bitcoin-assets into the blockchain?
pizzaman1337: no, bad idea
pizzaman1337: blockchain is too big already
MJR_: how future generations will judge us...
kakobrekla: i was trying to add it like yesterday or something but i got distracted
mircea_popescu: in fact this chan is growing faster than the blockchain
pizzaman1337: we don't want everyone dropping their crap in the blockchain
kakobrekla: irc is to blame
MJR_: i think it'd be hilarious, kinda like putting up posters of miley cyrus in the smithsonian
MJR_: or doodling on the constitution
mircea_popescu: MJR_ they've put seinfeld.
MJR_: lol
mircea_popescu: and in fairness, the blockchain isn't as bad as either miley cyrus or doodling.
mircea_popescu: we could tolerate it on our chan
MJR_: i just think that the whole idea of posterity is going away rather quickly
MJR_: we still have the illusion (some of us anyway) that the older generations were respectable
MJR_: our children will prob not have that illusion at all
kakobrekla: loool
kakobrekla: MJR_ is worried.
MJR_: srsly
MJR_: when your kids can google the things you tweeted as a teenager yourself...
mircea_popescu: o hey, twitter delivers! >> @PaulFish This is what a CEO / founder needs to focus on. This is it.
MJR_: or even worse, if they see the pics you've posted of yourself
mircea_popescu: then people wonder why i have the time to irc and chase skirts.
mircea_popescu: MJR_ i think all future children will have to learn to be comfortable with the fact that their mother's goodies are public record.
MJR_: yep
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: it's kinda funny tho because unique among literate people americans have spent a century or maybe even two in the firm belief that their government is like... good etc. paying their taxes, trying to do what policeman says etc. << I would attribute that to the general populace being brainwashed into believing revolution is bad
mircea_popescu: are you kidding ?
mircea_popescu: it all started with revolution.
mircea_popescu: pretty much the only people who believe revolution is good, other than romanians and who knows who else.
thestringpuller: isn't that funny though?!?!?
thestringpuller: Sure we protest, and "get uppity", but in general you're taught all through childhood "do as your told", "don't question authority".
thestringpuller: Maybe if everyone were more poor? Or perhaps there was truly a need to revolt? American's are very apathetic, and actually seem to "enjoy" the lethargy that arises from it.
mircea_popescu: that's normal, good and common.
mircea_popescu: people should do what they're told and not question authority in most cases.
thestringpuller: People should not be lazy and educate themselves :P
mircea_popescu: that's also
mircea_popescu: but the society where people don't do what they're told and question authority a lot ends up something like france
mircea_popescu: can't get a fucking train on schedule, even if the schedule lists hours only, no minutes.
thestringpuller: Yea, or you get Detroit.
thestringpuller: Have you ever been to Detroit?
MJR_: i've been to detroit
mircea_popescu: i avoided it.
thestringpuller: I think mircea_popescu would very well enjoy Detroit.
thestringpuller: You may need quite a few goons, and maybe a couple of drones...
mircea_popescu: you think ?
thestringpuller: Dude you survive in Bitcoin land which is like the virtual Detroit.
thestringpuller: Not only survive but thrive off it.
thestringpuller: Detroit is yours for the taking I'd think.
thestringpuller: You lived through the 90's Romanian revolution no?
mircea_popescu: what, i'm not affraid of "bad neighbourhoods" lol.
mircea_popescu: heck, i took teh coindelberg group through one here, it was funnay.
thestringpuller: is that like a pun?
mircea_popescu: which one ?
thestringpuller: coindelberg
mircea_popescu: the endlessly hacked frenchie guy came up with it
thestringpuller: Aw. And you were rooting for him.
mircea_popescu: he has the luck of the irishman in reverse.

mircea_popescu: jurov didja notice the gagle of 20 kids threatening to knife each other ?
jurov: yes i noticed, just joking a bit
mircea_popescu: was kinda funny, they were all "you ciocksucker, i bet you don't have 10 euros on you" "dude, if i do you suck my cock ???" "fuck you, show me"
mircea_popescu: i was like, hey, cool, nobody here is worth less than a million or some shit like that, you people are arguing about who has ten euros.
mircea_popescu: inequality ftw.

Cylta: If I understand correctly, asset "O.USD.C086T" is a call option from price of 86 usd per btc that will expire this month. Why people sell it, if price is already significally higher? and for what amount is this option?
ThickAsThieves: Cylta, you need to wait until new options are created tonight/tomorrow
ThickAsThieves: current prices are "glitched"
ThickAsThieves: (not actually quoting anyone)
mircea_popescu: Cylta you understand how options work, do you ?

ThickAsThieves: i dont have the link saved tho

BTCOxygen: Technologov__: pirateat40 was a scammer.
BTCOxygen: He ran away with the bitcoins.
Technologov__: ??? I never ever heard of him.
Technologov__: How an investor be a scammer ?
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: Yeah because he ran away long ago.
Technologov__: Either he invests or he does not.
BTCOxygen: He is not an Investor.
BTCOxygen: He was running the project.
Technologov__: then what ? Which project ?
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: He was paying a high interest rate to users who invested with him.
Technologov__: aha. Typical ponzi.
BTCOxygen: yep.
Technologov__: There is no risk-free interest above government bonds. Really.
Technologov__: maybe 3% at most.
Technologov__: As a small investor, I know it for sure.
Technologov__: Anything above that takes risk (and time).
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: FYI, He ran away with 100,000 Bitcoins.
Technologov__: huge amount
Cylta: Technologov__: goverment bonds are not risk-free.
BTCOxygen: I don't want to do the math its painfull.
Technologov__: Cylta, why not ? gvmt can simply print money to return cash.
Technologov__: so it is risk-free.
mircea_popescu: heya hellohello

mircea_popescu: ahaha noway
Cylta: jcpham: i think I heared it somewhere already...
jcpham: wired says fuck you
jcpham: if you think it's fake
Technologov__: BTCOxygen, and I have a fear about similar fate with Avalon ASICs
Technologov__: that's why I wanna wait until ppl will start receiving first batch units
Technologov__: + dev boards
Technologov__: I _do_ believe the ASICs are real
mircea_popescu: so when it turens out to be actually fakwe
Technologov__: But I highly doubt, that they will ship any.
mircea_popescu: i guess we all sue wired. this is good news.
mircea_popescu: conde nast actually has money, so...
mircea_popescu: i'm tickled pink over here.
Cylta: first batch of avalon already reached their customers, no?
Technologov__: More probably they will keep to themselves. (so their accepted BTC might be a scam)
jcpham: these guys at BFL are masters of hype
jcpham: i give them credit where it is due
mircea_popescu: jcpham its literally not that hard to do. get a journo dood to post nonsense ? 100 bux or w/e
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: There are 300 working units.
jcpham: but i mean like the company name is unassuming and disarming even "butterfly"
jcpham: wtf
BTCOxygen: I know 5-6 people personally who recieved their Avalon.
jcpham: it's all smoke and mirrors
jcpham: but they have produced a product
Technologov__: no. Only 3 developers IMO.
Technologov__: 1st batch Avalons did *not* reach end-users (buyers).
Technologov__: jcpham, I doubt if Avalon are better
Technologov__: where? At their company ?
jcpham: so i digress for now until it collapses
Technologov__: Show me 20 users, whom actually _received_ any ASICs.
Technologov__: I could not find not on forums and not in chat
Technologov__: Clearly says that ASICs are for real.
jcpham: i know of 3 actual avalons
jcpham: and the owners and i've spoken with them
jcpham: that's it
jcpham: my world is small though
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: I mean I know end-users.
BTCOxygen: There are 5 Avalons mining at my pool tho.
Technologov__: but the risk-reward is potentially so high, that it is worth the (limited) risk.
BTCOxygen: I think even imsaguy has an Avalon.
Technologov__: hmm, good to know.
mircea_popescu: BTCOxygen which pool is that again ?
Technologov__: BTCOxygen :)
mircea_popescu: you telling me 5 avalons doesn't get you in the list ?
BTCOxygen: yes.
mircea_popescu: what's an avalon, 60gh ?
jcpham: 300GH/s barely gets blocks
jcpham: need moar
BTCOxygen: Also they don't list blocks properly.
BTCOxygen: 500GH/s
jcpham: how is 500 GH/s regular blocks?
jcpham: daily?
mircea_popescu: mk, otherwise : Top Hashers 63gh/s
mircea_popescu: seems there's one avalon there, and it does 80% or so of the pool ?
BTCOxygen: check*
jcpham: 100-400GH/s was struggling to keep up a few months back
jcpham: from talking with pool ops
jcpham: be interesting to see how it paces now
Technologov__: Now, the hash rate:
Technologov__: <-- Cylta has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
Technologov__: If this graph would be flat, I would buy a GPU, and not believe into ASIC lore.
Technologov__: But due to huge spike, I believe, that ASICs actually exist.
BTCOxygen: mircea_popescu: I see 3 Avalons.
mircea_popescu: where ?

BTCOxygen: Also there a many users posting about their Avalon on bitcointalk.

mircea_popescu: 1/3 avalon ?!

jcpham: that's just a chart
jcpham: those numbers could be made up
BTCOxygen: Anyone who clains that there are no Avalons in the wild should read this whole thread.
ezdiy: jurov: i think the rational explanation would be: give impression you want to get asics "out there so people dont lose trust" but in fact keep it private for as long as possible :)
Technologov__: going from 20 to 80 GH/s (in a MONTH !!!) can not be done via GPU.
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: yes.
jcpham: cpu mining botnet probably Technologov__
BTCOxygen: lol
jcpham: ;)
Technologov__: jcpham, LOL ! How u tried mining on CPU ?
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: rpcminr :P
jcpham: nah pool won't accept a share for shit
Technologov__: it is 100 times slower than GPU and 100,000 times slower than ASIC
jcpham: hurrrrrr
mircea_popescu: the conspiracy is strong in here.
Technologov__: CPU mining will cost you x100 more in electricity than Bitcoins you produce...
BTCOxygen: Technologov__: +100 for having that knowledge.
jcpham: i bet it's confusing talking to me.
jcpham: i believe asic exists. yes.
jurov: but really, i see it like either many asic users want to stay secret, or they are chinese not on btctalk
ezdiy: seeing is believing
jurov: or manufacturers mine themselves instead
jcpham: yeah the technology has made it like this
Technologov__: I would invest in ASIC company yes, but I dunno any.
jcpham: a device that makes thousands of bucks a day potentially is a security risk
ezdiy: jurov: even chinese guys reported selective vip treatment in regards to shipments from avalon

Technologov__: truffles, u can invest in Avalon here:
truffles: dont have any bitcoins
Technologov__: I did not had either until a week ago ^^
Technologov__: I bought them via Western Union.
Technologov__: at #bitcoin-otc
Technologov__: because my $3000 Rig PC generates only 0.001 BTC per day.
Technologov__: (on dual GPUs)
benkay: just two?
benkay: ;)
Technologov__: yeah, only 2.
Technologov__: and what ? I worked at Cisco Systems. There are *much* more cables there. I assure you.
Technologov__: any large company has a data-center those days.
truffles: knew ppl who just gushed over cisco systems..
benkay: ew gross owning your own data centers
benkay: great way to keep your sysadmin costs high

Technologov__: come on... it is all about mind-set. Don't needs to be rich ^^

benkay: truffles, how much does a seat on the NYSE cost?
benkay: and truffles, how is that related to their operating costs?
benkay: rhetorical questions. too much for you to afford, and it's not.
truffles: lol
truffles: i guess one must pay for a seat ..
truffles: seeing that this is bitcoin i thought things would be a bit different
benkay: they are different
benkay: you encrypt orders with gpg
benkay: print them out
benkay: fly them to romania on a carrier pigeon
asciilifeform: benkay: may as well ask how the cost of a NYC taxi medallion relates to the cost of the bureaucrat's pen that signs the paperwork.
mircea_popescu: fucking unfair comparison of the century. i hate taxi medallions.
benkay: except that the bureaucrat doesn't own the medallion organization, the mob does
ezdiy: truffles: vipcoin is confusing, but otherwise legit
benkay: but i think we're making the same points.
ezdiy: truffles: here is exact process how 30 bitcoins are turned into vipcoin:
mircea_popescu: what's vipcoin even ?!
benkay: and yet vipcoin doesn't break top page google
truffles: sounded like a legit altcoin
Technologov__: BTCOxygen, ping
truffles: hope this song is good
asciilifeform: IMHO taxi medallions are a fair comparison. They, just as the MPEx fee, exist to keep the riffraff out.
ezdiy: truffles: seek 1:40 for teenage girl
truffles: assuming i like girls
asciilifeform: Were it not for medallions, NYC would probably look like Shanghai (rickshaws, etc.) I'm fine with that, but the rulers of the place evidently aren't
ezdiy: teenage is the important part
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're neglecting the entire geographical monopoly angle.
asciilifeform: MP has said, in essence, that he doesn't want MPEx to become a Shanghai crawling with the equivalent of rickshaws.
asciilifeform: If I understand correctly
truffles: exclusive club
ezdiy: yet payola is the realm of criminal forums
ezdiy: so which is it?
ezdiy: :)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't have a problem with rickshaws per se.
mircea_popescu: there's historically been small corps listed, it's not that.
truffles: i enjoyed it
ezdiy: well
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: we were talking about the 30 BTC user account fee, right? rather than listings
ezdiy: thats what vip is about
ezdiy: teenage girls, database management and company lunches
truffles: i just want the lunches
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's easy access for someone even with 0.1 btc. there's pts, there's brokers.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [VTX] 12 @ 0.4248 = 5.0976 BTC [+]
ezdiy: truffles: no soup for you
ezdiy: i think mircea_popescu plays the soupnazi part well
benkay: no no no, the role of taxi medallions is to reduce the number of taxis on the street
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's like saying that "eTrade" with its $x/trade fees is a perfectly good alternative to a seat on the NYSE
mircea_popescu: well... would you say seat on nyse = london cab medallion ?
mircea_popescu: ezdiy ty
truffles: truffles: no soup for you >> soup nazi!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sure
benkay: mircea_popescu would be only too happy to have more traders on his exchange, he just doesn't want to deal with the riffraff. he wants others to aggregate riffraff orders and place them on MPEx.
benkay: at least I think that's what he wants. open to correction on that count.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well then everything's everything and wtf.
mircea_popescu: benkay there was some pretty good discussion with pgp on this, lemme d ig
benkay: thanks mircea_popescu, feel free to pm it over
truffles: wants more money and people to agree with whatever he says
asciilifeform: benkay: riffraff interested in automated trading are more or less written out of the script. MP runs his own house how he likes, I'm fine with that. But why not call things by their real names.
benkay: asciilifeform what's the real name, then? medallions are a competition inhibitor, the exchange seat fee is just an "are you serious" check
benkay: it's not even that much money
ezdiy: asciilifeform: real names are bad for pr
truffles: its working
orkaa: haha
asciilifeform: benkay: the bureaucrats (in practice) own NYC, and charge whatever the hell they want for taxi licenses. a bar can charge for entrance. nothing wrong with that. what I'm unclear on is why the MP fee is a different kind of animal.
truffles: omg what is that orkaa!!!
ezdiy: orkaa: +1 for underage, -1 not naked
ezdiy: asciilifeform: thats how it works
orkaa: i saw this on tv some time ago, it's real :)
ezdiy: asciilifeform: in general its called vendor lock-in
truffles: orkaa add metzitzah b'peh and its complete
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is there a way i can run a cab in london just for a day ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: I imagine you could buy a medallion and sell it the next day, if you wanted to
asciilifeform: just like an MPEx account
mircea_popescu: can you actually sell those ?
benkay: probably
mircea_popescu: maybe the disagreement is borne out of me not understanding taxi medallions too well.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: IDK about London, but in most places you can
mircea_popescu: afaik it's just this nonsense to keep people who would like to work off
mircea_popescu: sorta like a union
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: If I recall, most NYC drivers take out monstrous loans to buy medallions.
benkay: most don't even buy the medallions
benkay: others do
benkay: ibankers and whatnot
ezdiy: why people who dont understand basic market forces (if you have little competition, it makes sense to introduce artificial scarcity) want to trade on mpex?
mircea_popescu: ezdiy that absolutely isn't the rationale.
truffles: back him into a corner here
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: occam is cutting his veins though :)
mircea_popescu: i know.
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: i'm not dismissing it, whatever the reason its totally legit
mircea_popescu: the problem with cheapo/clueless investors is that they follow trends
mircea_popescu: this induces huge volatility which then wrecks assets.
asciilifeform: ezdiy: I'm not clamouring to buy an MPEx account for a penny, just objecting to the notion that the fee is somehow different from taxi medallions
mircea_popescu: i still think it is.
benkay: I agree.
benkay: not all customers are good customers.
benkay: and when money is involved as a core part of the business, many of your customers will in fact be bad customers without quality control.
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: you do that at the cost of huge spreads though
ezdiy: as long people are content with those, well why not
ezdiy: your idea of rate limiting the market holds water
mircea_popescu: well the problem with the "as long as people are content" argument
mircea_popescu: is that it's how we ended up with shit on tv.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: How would you personally explain the apparent lack of competition to MPEx? Is it simply the fact that no one else has the "reputation capital" ?
mircea_popescu: people have this incredible ability to "be content" with anything. frog in boiling water experiment if you know it.
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: yup
ezdiy: boil em slow :)
truffles: reputation hhaha
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's a complicated web. no one has the competence, or the capital, or the reputation, or the connections, etc etc
mircea_popescu: they just feed into each other.
asciilifeform: truffles: I meant the banal fact that MPEx works as it says on the box, and none of the vaguely similar services proved to do the same
jborkl: Mp, has a stellar reputation. Unless you beleive asshole trolls and other people that are poor
mircea_popescu: i think people grossly misrepresent what all is involved.
ezdiy: clouds can be cleared up only if youre open about it
ezdiy: heck even bitcoinica eventually became opensource :)
ezdiy: so people are ok w/ bitfinex because its obvious what theyre dealing with
ezdiy: black boxes give room to a lot of speculation
asciilifeform: Ok, let's see if I understand: the 30 BTC is for keeping MPEx a market full of people who measure 1000 times "before cutting once." No trendoids, etc. Now let's say Warren Buffet (or somesuch) opens WBEx, charging 1 BTC.
ezdiy: as well as affiliate marketing schemes for vipcoin
asciilifeform: it fills up with trendoids
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform problem with your let's suppose is that it's nonsensical.
mircea_popescu: last thing he'd do is that.
mircea_popescu: he'd open a 1000 btc one first, he'd partner with me 2nd.
asciilifeform: ok, someone else with a bag full of BTC and a resonably good meatspace reputation, then.
mircea_popescu: but do you understand your own example ?
mircea_popescu: buffy is famous for having told his bh specialist
mircea_popescu: "if the next trade happens a year or so from now i'll be very happy"
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HIM] 2 @ 1.7051 = 3.4102 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: what I'm rather hazy on is how well MPEx would hold up against a "good enough" clone that meets the basic criterion of "not being an outright scam" (AFAIK none of the MPEx competitors have met this standard)
ezdiy: it holds pretty well
truffles: make em sweat
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im not sure what the incentive is exactly. you'd finance a clone rather than buy shares because ... ?
jborkl: Wait, I trust MP - so who is this you are proposing? Just some random asshole with a website?
mircea_popescu: s.dice competition never materialised EXACTLY because s.dice listed.
mircea_popescu: once that happened it's impossible to finance a clone anymore.
truffles: impossible nice word
asciilifeform: jborkl: no, not a random arse, someone with a good reputation, hypothetically
ezdiy: people really underestimate network effects
assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 2 @ 1.2 = 2.4 BTC [+]
jborkl: there is no one with enough sense and enough money currently
ezdiy: sdice, mtgox and mpex are examples of such
jborkl: strike one and two
mircea_popescu: so srsly asciilifeform, let's say your reputation is enoug, and you have 10k btc to burn.
mircea_popescu: you decide it has to burn in this space.
asciilifeform: jborkl: true, just as there is no semiconductor plant owner with the good sense to drop some of his pocket change on building a million ASIC miners and running them in his own mansion.
ezdiy: jborkl: competition eventually overcomes the network effect resistance
ezdiy: jborkl: inb4 bitvegas ipo
mircea_popescu: a. you buy s.mpoe shares b. you try and make a competitor.
mircea_popescu: which is your pick ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: By this logic Pepsi ought not to exist, they should just re-sell Coke?
mircea_popescu: they do.
ezdiy: they do? :)
jborkl: a shitty clone of it
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: how do i buy cola in kfc :)
ezdiy: what if bitvegas started kfc
ezdiy: and bundled their cola with it?
ezdiy: would it make sense to invest in mpex then?
mircea_popescu: im unsure wtf bitvegas is.
mircea_popescu: o the team fortress thing ?
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: :)
ezdiy: its easy to measure growth
ezdiy: where it is stalled and where it is not
jborkl: anyway, what time exactly do options expire MP? in UTC?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there could be logical reasons for starting one's own "MPEx, with blackjack and hookers." Say I want to use evil altchains. And, AFAIK MPEx shares are non-voting, so it isn't that I could buy enough of them to make MP do this deed.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform now you're talking angles.
mircea_popescu: originally discussion was straight clone.
mircea_popescu: if you mean start a competitor with an angle, it all boils down to whether the angle a. actually helps you and b. is good enouigh to push you
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: copycats work perfectly good
ezdiy: be the underdog and wait for the uber dogs demise
ezdiy: lets see ... gblse?
ezdiy: :)
truffles: thats impossible
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ok, let's stick to clones. Picture Bill Gates, a hypothetical BGEx with a 5 BTC fee.
mircea_popescu: ezdiy again people underestimate what goes on in the background.
ezdiy: truffles: not by market forces, but by something stupid
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and he's doing this on pgp ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7513 @ 0.00070108 = 5.2672 BTC [+]
truffles: was being silly :)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sure, I agree, this is a stretch of the imagination. but let's imagine.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: yes, pgp.
mircea_popescu: ok this i wish to see.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: AFAIK you don't have a monopoly on PGP
ezdiy: asciilifeform: you're wasting your time, btw
mircea_popescu: so bill gates is making a mpex clone complete with pgp and everything.
mircea_popescu: +1000 points for me for being so cool. will any of the big people switch to him ? maybe so. maybe not.
mircea_popescu: i can probably exit to jpm for a billion at that point anyway.
ezdiy: mp stands, but might possibly fall, because mircea_popescu is uber consistent in everything
ezdiy: which also means you cant convince him by make believe arguments
mircea_popescu: at which poin tyhe deal becomes jpmpex vs bgex
mircea_popescu: and i gues jpmpex wins
mircea_popescu: i won't be there to see it likely, but anyway.
ezdiy: asciilifeform: the general term is jerk irl :)
truffles: i think he'll last a while, he has minions
ezdiy: yep
ezdiy: the bitch army is impressive
ezdiy: :)
asciilifeform: ezdiy: I think you misunderstand. I'm not trying to convince MP of anything in particular. Just playing out a thought experiment: what would happen if MPEx actually had competition.
ezdiy: jurov: ohai!
truffles: yep im impressed
ezdiy: truffles: rpietila took it from the other end
ezdiy: mp first build something tangible, then the bitch army
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: what on earth is a Bitcoin Supernode?
kakobrekla: yes!
ezdiy: rpietila is apparently starting with the bitch army and maybe turn out to be not elaborate troll and come up with something
mircea_popescu: ezdiy it's kinda funny to compare "pic of mp with people" vs "pic of foreveralone btctalk dud"
truffles: do u know he put mircea_popescu on ignore right after we were going to "debate" something he posted our comments on his blog then i refused to subscribe, right around the time he paid people to troll SomthingAwful forums
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: indeed :)
truffles: he =mp
kakobrekla: rpietila had too much cocaine
ezdiy: so much shame goat burned the cover
ezdiy: that thread was so full of gold
mircea_popescu: totally.
truffles: link?
mircea_popescu: goat gets confused in troll gold threads.
truffles: thanks kakobrekla
ezdiy: still
ezdiy: interesting phenomena
ezdiy: bitch armies, whiteknighting and all
ezdiy: because those are irrelevant
kakobrekla: i quote
kakobrekla: Think of this as a book, or at least as a quality blog, to be enjoyed with quality wine and cigars in candle light.
ezdiy: important is only network effect
kakobrekla: comedy central in that setting?
ezdiy: take mtgox, fe, everyone agrees their stuff is sub-par
ezdiy: no bitch army, everybody hates magicaltux's guts
ezdiy: yet its the biggest
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla lol candlelight and screen. sounds legit
ezdiy: kakobrekla: yup, thats how i understood it
ezdiy: i mean, the guy clearly stated to be not taken seriously

ezdiy: no, still nothing
ezdiy: truffles: world is full of hypocrisy
truffles: to be feigned a bit in "polite society" id hope :)
ezdiy: well, there is that thing
truffles: i have no quality wine and cigars in candle light maybe i should stop reading
ezdiy: truffles: being a bitch means you strongly defend your cult figure while youre subject ot heir will
mircea_popescu: i thought it just meant being annoying.
ezdiy: truffles: being polite just means not giving a crap about things you cant change
ezdiy: for example, opionons
truffles: hehe
ezdiy: mircea_popescu: from the pov of dictator, it is :)
truffles: i like to hear them though
ezdiy: subjects are always annyoing
ezdiy: you know
truffles: i think those ppl have tunnel vision, they wont get it
ezdiy: they have their stupid feelings and such
mircea_popescu: i dunno what dictators you've been hanging out with...
truffles: although mp certainly wont if he's got me on ignore hehe
ezdiy: cognitive dissonance is to be cherished
ezdiy: to manipulate
ezdiy: but its uber annoying at the same time
ezdiy: truffles: i think mp is strongwilled enough to just feign ignore
ezdiy: curiosity and strong will results just not responding :)
truffles: i doubt that
truffles: im just annoyed we couldnt "debate" before the ignore ...
ezdiy: truffles: better come up with some plot
ezdiy: to ignite the nuclear war again
truffles: haha
ezdiy: between soupnazi and kim jong un of finland
truffles: im focused on other times so its not a big deal
mircea_popescu: this is making so little sense...
truffles: im not a schemer or scammer

ezdiy: its the new bitcoin supernode
