nubbins`: anyone heard of "coinpunk"?
nubbins`: also, hi
mircea_popescu: hi and nope
pankkake: I heard of it, never tried it. the homepage has a hipster feel, i.e. it probably doesn't work
nubbins`: some sort of web wallet type thing for phones, from what i can tell
pankkake: but that's my negative hater mind talking
ThickAsThieves: i watched the vid of it
pankkake: doesn't protect against MITM - unless you have your own SSL certificate and check it
ThickAsThieves: basically he did it so iphone peeops can wallet
pankkake: they can't use
nubbins`: well
ThickAsThieves: apparently not
nubbins`: that's what i started wondering
nubbins`: but my password is really really cumbersome to enter on a phone
nubbins`: and i just fucked it up twice
pankkake: they should be, in the web browser (and the MITM issue is the same)
pankkake: haha
nubbins`: but i mean, web wallets seem like the obvious solution to apple's bitcoin app ban
nubbins`: and so i'm wondering why it hasn't been done a thousand times
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CFIG] 1 @ 0.10020101 BTC [-]
nubbins`: and why this coinpunk guy is making it seem novel

mircea_popescu: uyou ever seen a nonservice coming out of the us webservice-entrepreneurs dog and pony show that wasn't a. very banal and b. presented as the new wheel ?
ThickAsThieves: i think he mightve been a BTC Foundation grant recipient or whatever they call it too
nubbins`: ah, ok
mircea_popescu: this'd be the first time anyone actually connected to the barfoundation actually did something.
nubbins`: web wallet works just fine on my phone
nubbins`: but it won't scan qr cores.
nubbins`: nor will it scan qr codes
ThickAsThieves: coinpunk does
nubbins`: yeah
nubbins`: i think that's the distinguishing feature here
pankkake: oh, that's good then
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.31 BTC [+]
nubbins`: its prolly just a QR scanning app that interfaces with bc.i API :P
pankkake: "status outside UK/EU jurisdiction", eh nice
nubbins`: ThickAsThieves: hm, so essentially these are trade coins
nubbins`: "town dollar" type thing
ThickAsThieves: Rather than having a private key sealed inside, like the popular Casascius physical bitcoins and their contemporaries, the Alderney bitcoins would be exchangeable for the more useful digital kind by its holder paying a visit to the island. They would not be official legal tender otherwise.
nubbins`: essentially they're selling IOUs
ThickAsThieves: someone figured since BTC is counterfeitable
ThickAsThieves: they should make it so
mircea_popescu: why is it that the state always tries to a. represent itself as "not the state" and b. represent itself as doing what people do, except without doing it ?
mircea_popescu: by now it's so regular it's a telltale sign already.
nubbins`: canadian mint was supposed to be doing some sort of digital money thing
nubbins`: meanwhile, some scandal surrounding the director
ThickAsThieves: he pre-mined?

nubbins`: lel!
nubbins`: catch: the Alderney IOU coins are the size of the one in the picture accompanying this article ^
ThickAsThieves: The epic $15-million court fight between Love and the Meighen heirs was finally settled two years ago. The defendants — including Love, his law partner and their current and former firms, as well as Legacy Private Trust and Canada Trust — agreed to pony up $8.9 million, but without admitting fault.
ThickAsThieves: 8.9m is not admission enough!
mircea_popescu: that was such a lulzy case
nubbins`: "the meighen heirs"
nubbins`: like the royal tenenbaums
nubbins`: you know, it would be funny if this mintchip thing became ubiquitous in canada before bitcoin did
mircea_popescu: bet you it won't happen.

mircea_popescu: i doubt any western government has the ability to do one better.

mod6: ahh. cool though.
mod6: with the diff where it looks like its going, a bn satoshi per contract would be signifigant. it would be pretty helpful maybe to be able to get them for a fraction. anyway, all in good time.
mircea_popescu: yeah, eventually.
mod6: werd.

mircea_popescu: in theory the idea for making a "poor man's share" is that it will have more volume and more stability.
mircea_popescu: at least in a theoretical macroeconomic sense.
mircea_popescu: seems that while taxing the poor does in fact produce more revenue than taxing the rich, nevertheless giving the poor investment "voice" does not in fact produce more sense than the voice of the rich already provided.
mircea_popescu: or at least, this particular anecdotal situation fits well with that heavily ideologically slanted perspective.
kakobrekla: isnt s.mpoe priced for poor ppl
pankkake: I wondered about the choice of having so many little shares actually
kakobrekla: i had this argument before
pankkake: to have more numbers?
kakobrekla: the reason was so you can fine tune your investment
kakobrekla: my answer was if you invest 100 btc it doesnt matter if its 101 or 99
pankkake: well yes it's almost analog
pankkake: I like it
kakobrekla: higher amount of number is better
pankkake: and I can have funny numbers if I want to
kakobrekla: mind, my argument goes against this
pankkake: if you want to invest 1.5 BTC and the shares are 1 BTC? that's kind of frustrating

mircea_popescu: by the way, here's a fun fact : ken's account was hijacked. the account was registered on oct 2010, and made exactly two posts by the original guy (both here : )
mircea_popescu: the next activity is in march 2013.
kakobrekla: yeah well the story with buttfunder in one sentence - i wouldnt trust a guy who cant afford a few http posts
mircea_popescu: this exactly matches the labcoin scammers behaviour, which also used "reputable" forum accounts in this manner
mircea_popescu: in fact their mo exactly matches labcoin's too : buy some actual miners to create the illusion of activity,
mircea_popescu: then pump out a lot of nonsense about creating asics
mircea_popescu: i suppose these guys use avalons instead of bitfuries, but hey.
mircea_popescu: in fact, it wouldn't particularly surprise me if the same scammer ring ran both scams.
pankkake: doubt it, this one is all-american
pankkake: just incompetence and little care for investors (he seems to pay himself and his family a nice fat salary)
mircea_popescu: remember, it was a fact that the bitdaytrade disaster was run by j r owens / meni rosenfeld / etc.

ThickAsThieves: "Is the era of American exceptionalism coming to an end?"
ThickAsThieves: Bill Clinton: America needs to stop majoring in the minors. That is, we need to look more at what other countries are now doing better than we are and learn from it instead of being in denial about it.
ThickAsThieves: Bill Gates: It’s OK for China to invent cancer drugs that cure patients in the United States. We want them to catch up. But as the leader, we want to keep setting a very, very high standard. We don’t want them to catch up because we’re slowing down or, even worse, going into reverse.
mircea_popescu: kinda late for that.
ThickAsThieves: i was hoping for more interesting answers
ThickAsThieves: like commenting on the psychology of American Exceptionalism
mircea_popescu: what's " American exceptionalism" supposed to mean anwyay ?
ThickAsThieves: how we think we're the best
ThickAsThieves: pride in our laziness
mircea_popescu: but this is universal banality.
mircea_popescu: everyone thinks the same.
ThickAsThieves: except we're better
mircea_popescu: the "russian soul", the "romanian feeling of existernce" etc.
Duffer1: you'd have to live here to understand just how pervasive the 'mjurica #1 woooot"
mircea_popescu: ;;google sentimentul romanesc al fiintei
ThickAsThieves: Duffer1 i agree
mircea_popescu: o goog's gone
ThickAsThieves: it starts in grade school
mircea_popescu: i tell you, there's exactly no difference. argentines and vietnamese think the same.
kakobrekla: grib's gone
ThickAsThieves: you are american, you can be president or astronaut if you want
mircea_popescu: serbs and croats think the same
mircea_popescu: even sudan
Duffer1: i'm not saying jingoism is unique to america..
mircea_popescu: or somalia
kakobrekla: careful, you are close to somalia
ThickAsThieves: then americans go to job at gas station happy knowing they could be president if they wanted
ThickAsThieves: mp you are probly right
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla your slovenly compatriots don't think they're like all unique and so on ?
ThickAsThieves: but you really dont think US is more full of itself than else?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves how is this different from like... anyone else ?
mircea_popescu: i mean i guess the brit couldn't be queen...
mircea_popescu: but he could be lieutenant general
Duffer1: our political rhetoric is so nausiating, when we elect a new president we say "x has been elected the new leader of the free world"
kakobrekla: i only have absolute measument which is not interesting for this debate
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves well i think the notion that the us constitutes a notion is heartwarmingly ludicrous, but otherewise no, not really different from anyone else.
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 the soviets said the same
mircea_popescu: so does cuba.
Duffer1: i guess i'm exceptionalist about our exceptionalist tendencies? wait does that prove i'm right?
mircea_popescu: "the notion that the us constitutes a nation" i meant.
ThickAsThieves: i dunno, why is it a feel embarassed to say i'm american when travelling?
ThickAsThieves: do you feel that for Romania when you leave?
Duffer1: afk
ThickAsThieves: maybe it's a me problem

mircea_popescu: i did a lot of travelling and adding it all up my romanian passport was pretty much the best passport to have.
ThickAsThieves: cuz Twilight
mircea_popescu: i mean... in libya or serbia a us passport is a liability
mircea_popescu: so is british in say argentina
mircea_popescu: but romanians nevr massively pissed anyone off.
kakobrekla: same here, cause we are too stupid and small
mircea_popescu: romania also has the advantages that 1, soccer is popular and romania was really good at it historically, so ppl in latin america are all HAGi !! LACATUS!!!
mircea_popescu: and 2. the commies did a lot of machinery exporting, so all over the middle east it's like, o, you're romanian, that means you're like the best engineer in town
mircea_popescu: One of the world’s leading authorities on genetics says the human race was born into existence after a chimpanzee mated with a pig.
