mike_c: hm, interesting. a week ago the btc/usd 7 day volatility was the highest its been since August 2011
mike_c: i know, that is interesting!
mike_c: thanks, i thought so too.
ozbot: BitBet - 1BTC >= $10,000 USD
mike_c: somebody caught on to the trick. dump a bunch of money in early and kill the late guys. a good move.
mike_c: oh wait, "somebody" :)
chsados: mike_c: what is he doing exactly?
mike_c: you get a bunch of money in early, at a high weight.
mike_c: when more money comes in late, at a low weight, you make money.
chsados: it seems like he is betting heavy on both sides though - how does that become profitable
mike_c: if a lot of money comes in both sides it works out. if it goes heavily slanted one way the whole time, not so much.
mike_c: or if there just isn't any action, then you'll lose out on the fees.
mike_c: so it's basically a wager on "this bet will be popular"

Diablo-D3: you klnow
Diablo-D3: its kinda funny
Diablo-D3: Im richer than MP
truffles: orly
Diablo-D3: he says he has thousands and thousands and thousands of bitcoins
Diablo-D3: I dont actually believe him
Diablo-D3: so going on what he makes on mpex, which is very little because no one uses it
truffles: u want to prove ur wallet is bigger than his wallet lol
Diablo-D3: I am, in fact, richer than mp
truffles: i wouldnt know about the traffic
Diablo-D3: truffles: bitcoin wallet only?
truffles: oh i c
Diablo-D3: because he probably has more bitcoins than me atm
Diablo-D3: I cashed out quite a few into dollars
truffles: why do u have to prove u have more?
Diablo-D3: I dont
Diablo-D3: Im just tired of hearing him talk
truffles: oh
Diablo-D3: Seriously, nobody cares how many slave women he has
truffles: he is kinda polorizing maybe
Diablo-D3: (hint: he actually has zero, he says he has like three)
Diablo-D3: what the fuck would you even NEED 3 slave women for
Diablo-D3: the man only has one penis
mircea_popescu: jesus who the fuck do i still have on ignore
truffles: u sure, Rominia looks kinda poor
mircea_popescu: i thought i cleared it
truffles: Diablo-D3
Diablo-D3: mircea_popescu: me, you jackass
mircea_popescu: oh
mircea_popescu: maybe next year.
Diablo-D3: lol.
truffles: haha
Diablo-D3: truffles: and this is why no one likes mircea_popescu
truffles: rly, seems like he has bunch of fans in here
Diablo-D3: I wouldnt call them fans
Diablo-D3: more like people who tolerate him and also want slave women
TomServo: Hearing about his slaves is a LOT more interesting that your paleo diet. Just sayin'.
truffles: well the fact that they have to be slaves is kinda not cool imo
pankkake: I like both paleo and slave women. which side do I chose?
Diablo-D3: pankkake: mmm bbqed slaves
truffles: unless he's just saying theyre slaves..
Diablo-D3: truffles: they're not actually slaves
Diablo-D3: they're slaves in the bdsm sense
truffles: ohh
Diablo-D3: seriously?
Diablo-D3: you didnt get that?
pankkake: lol
truffles: i think of human trafficing when its mentioned *blush*
Diablo-D3: dear God, no
Diablo-D3: he just has (well, says he has) a collection of women that like to be used and abused
truffles: well then thats what theyre into..
mircea_popescu: truffles whoi has to be a slave ?
Diablo-D3: whips, being tied up, getting brutally fucked, being kept in a cage when not in use, that sort of thing
truffles: mp u bdsm women
truffles: ur*
ThickAsThieves: mp you could solve your ignore problem by adding truffles too
truffles: kinda dont have sympathy for ppl who chose it though
ThickAsThieves: since he's the only one taking D3 seriously
truffles: its what they want
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: wtf man
mircea_popescu: this is true... but i got the spirit of xmas earlier
ThickAsThieves: lol
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: so what, you actually think he actually bought slave women?
truffles: TAT ure so mean
ThickAsThieves: D3 it is absolutely inconsequential to me what MP does for his personal life
Diablo-D3: I mean, if he actually HAS bought slaves, I know a guy at interpol
ThickAsThieves: i'm feeling grinchy...
truffles: TAT what is your problem with me and Diablo-D3
mircea_popescu: anyway, nobody has to be a slave. it's a voluntary arrangement, and it has its advantages. chief among which that you're about 10x as quick to learn as a slave.
ThickAsThieves: I think that was the first "mean" accusation for me, have I really made it?
Diablo-D3: he doesnt like fine chocolates or evil incarnate
truffles: TAT snarky > mean
mircea_popescu: pls spell it "snarky", like "futures"
ThickAsThieves: i remember being in grade school having to write little page about Christmas,
ThickAsThieves: I put Santa Claus in quotes like that
truffles: Diablo-D3 what have u done to make u evil?
ThickAsThieves: and the teacher marked it up, and said it might imply that i dont think Santa is real
ThickAsThieves: well...
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: wow
Diablo-D3: you could have been rich
Diablo-D3: you could have sued the school for forcing religious doctrine on you
ThickAsThieves: ...
ThickAsThieves: i was also going to Catechism at that age
pankkake: which religion is santa?
pankkake: capitalism?
ThickAsThieves: so kinda stupid to make religion accusations
ThickAsThieves: CocaColaism
truffles: so ure atheist as an adult
jurov`: I don't believe in Santa Claus. We had Ded Moroz from Siberia instead.
ThickAsThieves: atheism is too narrow a term
truffles: agnostic?
ThickAsThieves: the wonders of the universe remain unexplained
Diablo-D3: I believe God is a scientist.
Diablo-D3: Im that kind of guy
truffles: after some years the science changes..
pankkake: I believe I am God, you're just part of my imagination
ThickAsThieves: "the more I study science, the more I believe in God"
ThickAsThieves: who said that
truffles: i only know teh "I think, therefore I am."
ThickAsThieves: Einstein
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: Einstein was a very smart man, hes very underappreciated
truffles: overappreciated imo
ThickAsThieves: probly one of my "if you could have lunch with anyone" targets
truffles: did he steal some of his discoveries?...
truffles: id pick Tesla
ThickAsThieves: "Good artists borrow, great artists steal"
ThickAsThieves: who said that
asciilifeform: herr jobs
ThickAsThieves: Picasso, baby
truffles: oh thought it was Neal Caffrey
ThickAsThieves: lol
ThickAsThieves: "Neoteny is not necessarily limited to physical features however. Currently, a large minority with perhaps a view of soon becoming majority of English speaking adults exhibit psychological neoteny, the sad state wherein their body has long reached maturity while their mind is still continuing adolescence"
ThickAsThieves: i assumed this to be majority prevelent for quite some time
ThickAsThieves: like Amy sorta
ThickAsThieves: people just frozen in grade/high school
ThickAsThieves: mentally
Diablo-D3: yeah
Diablo-D3: but thats because high school is broken
Diablo-D3: its psychological damage inflicted by the state to make good workers
Diablo-D3: problem is, we dont need workers
Diablo-D3: we need free thinkers
Diablo-D3: as many as possible
ThickAsThieves: oh god no
ThickAsThieves: have you seen all the free thinkers on reddit?
pankkake: aren't they all in school?
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: I said free thinkers, not faggots with too much karma
ThickAsThieves: 35 and in school, probly
Diablo-D3: reddit is pure faggotry, I dont know how people stand it
truffles: u hate gays too
truffles: dam
Diablo-D3: truffles: I neither hate nor like gays
Diablo-D3: I find their taste in men to be strange.
truffles: Diablo-D3 then id like to know what u consider normal
Diablo-D3: truffles: boobs and a vagina.
Diablo-D3: truffles: btw, you were supposed to say "whats wrong with their taste in men"
truffles: whats wrong with it
Diablo-D3: they have one
truffles: i try not to judge
truffles: the former christian in me :)
Diablo-D3: truffles: if you want to participate in the comedy, you need to learn when someone is trying to setup a joke
Diablo-D3: heh, the christian in me is fine with people being gay
ThickAsThieves: question, why does nethash measurement vary so greatly among measurers?
Diablo-D3: as long as they treat their partner with a respect and be part of the community and, well, not have AIDS
Diablo-D3: Im totally okay with it
pankkake: reddit common beliefs: 1) we are a nice community 2) academia teaches you everything you need 3) fedoras are cool
Diablo-D3: just please, no bearded men kissing
pankkake: what measurers?
Diablo-D3: just dont do it

ThickAsThieves: it was like 5
mircea_popescu: maybe it's rolling window past 2 weeks ?

ThickAsThieves: better than if he bought real btc?
ThickAsThieves: i'm skeptical
ThickAsThieves: but possible i guess
nubbins`: yeah
nubbins`: i can't imagine he paid more than $10-20 per

nubbins`: dexX7: wasn't sure what else to call them, also, you'd need to be full retard to assume it contains value
nubbins`: gotta draw the line somewhere, otherwise you end up having your description read "DO NOT heat this coin with a blowtorch for a half hour and lay it on the tip of your penis" etc
dexX7: well i rather think the buy just has no clue
dexX7: "it's a bitcoin, i want it"

nubbins`: i tried to retard-proof it as best i could
nubbins`: and i have, in fact, had a few people cancel their bids
dexX7: the only misleading line is "physical bitcoin" imo
dexX7: though people tried similar stuff earlier.. like selling "iphone box without iphone inside" and got burned
nubbins`: ah, i see what you're saying
nubbins`: not sure how better to describe it tho
nubbins`: 2013 0.5 btc brass casascius round that has a bitcoin logo on it - REDEEMED

nubbins`: your logic has no place here!
nubbins`: ;p
nubbins`: i don't know of any wholesale suppliers that accept btc
nubbins`: in any industry
mircea_popescu: but if they did accept btc ... it'd be still at the fiat equiv
nubbins`: well yeah, you're just moving it up a level
mircea_popescu: the idea is to be fiat rich and just take the losses.
thestringpuller: fiat rich is so 1800's
nubbins`: now they're immediately cashing out for fiat too, because the cotton farms don't accept btc
thestringpuller: nubbins`: you can always store profits in btc
ThickAsThieves: yes but if you get vendors accepting, you start creating a closed loop
nubbins`: too true, and in fact we do
ThickAsThieves: and that coin maybe never becomes fiat
nubbins`: tat, too true, it's a hard sell tho
thestringpuller: yea so if you store your profits in coin, and liquidate coins to pay expenses no payable directly by btc what does it really matter?

jborkl: yeah, so the first 478 of profit is non commision
mircea_popescu: ah ah
mircea_popescu: so the value there is 1% of 478 btc minus whatever discount ?
mircea_popescu: this is more than the average car.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 60 @ 0.00247999 = 0.1488 BTC [-]
jborkl: 10% i think is the commision rate
mircea_popescu: o they hiked it ?
mircea_popescu: then it's definitely more than the average car.
jborkl: yeah, a few months ago
jborkl: so ~48 btc
mircea_popescu: wait. it stands at ~9k profit with 10% fees?!
mircea_popescu: o wait nm, the 10% out of the 1% huh.
jborkl: yes

mircea_popescu: i've seen this.
jborkl: Mike, it does not matter if he is trustworthy- just have dooglus hold the escrow
mircea_popescu: in this parallel universe you can have an auction with a "starting bid" of 1 and a "reserve" of 10 which means that unless it reaches 10 the item doesn't sell.
mike_c: ok, thanks
pankkake: well, that's the ebay universe
mike_c: mircea_popescu: sometimes they take the reserve off if it isn't met
pankkake: secret reserves are so annoying
mike_c: so there can be value in bidding under the reserve
mircea_popescu: mike_c should be a crime if you ask me.
mike_c: yeah, its dumb
mircea_popescu: anyway, i was once with this chick who actually lived off going to no name auctions
mircea_popescu: and buying crap she resold in her shop and online
mircea_popescu: i nearly fell over laughing, all the housewives being all business-serious and bidding a hundred on some lamp
mircea_popescu: more like a tupperware party than an auction, but anyway.
pankkake: well, she provides some convenience for buyers, it's valuable
pankkake: once I bought a full pc, I accidentaly broke the motherboard, sold off the parts, got more money :|
kakobrekla: lol
mircea_popescu: pankkake the people filling captchas by hand also provide some convenience for some buyers.
mike_c: pc arbitrage, nice.
kakobrekla: you should break more stuff
mircea_popescu: i'll beat that story : a major romanian retailer bought ~100 laptops off a competitor, which the competitor was selling discounted,
mircea_popescu: to return on their own (more permissive) return policy.
pankkake: but it's also how you sell it. if you're a trusted seller, have nice pics, description, it gets higher
mircea_popescu: this was done by the actual owner packing the laptops in his own personal car.
mircea_popescu: i think the total loot for this grand scheme was around 5k or so.
pankkake: haha. that's why retailers usually put max orders and only allow individuals
mircea_popescu: myeah. HP could simply not believe the story.
mircea_popescu: "nigga, they did what ?!"

ozbot: China Exclusive: China detains Bitcoin fraud suspects - NZweek
mircea_popescu: o hey.
mircea_popescu: stephengandel if your budged is in the bitcoin range, and your technical sophistication low you are best served by a bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: think of mpex as the nyse, which is what it is. for most purposes you won't acquire a seat in the pit.
mike_c: *served by a broker
mircea_popescu: mike_c oops right.
stephengandel: gotcha
BingoBoingo: stephengandel: Yup. Coinbr, the broker does their opions on MPEx. As Mircea says though just holding the bitcoin may be the wiser course of action.
mircea_popescu: "A 29-year-old suspect surnamed Liu allegedly began operating GBL trading platform on May 27 of this year, according to police in Dongyang City in east China’s Zhejiang Province."
mircea_popescu: kleeck kickass.
kleeck: :)
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo if he expects a drop then holding the bitcoin isn't particularly wise.
kleeck: Hope to soon have a similar article involving Armandi and Tatti. :D
stephengandel: gotcha. Will give it a try and let you know how it goes.
stephengandel: Do you think bitcoins will drop?
mircea_popescu: stephengandel you can also review the mpex monthly reports to see about how option trading has fared historically. a count of sold/bought contracts by the bot is provided in each
dexX7: they were quite fast. shut down oct 26, not even 2 months later some results
mircea_popescu: stephengandel someone sold a lot of calls short yesterday, right before the drop.
benkay: stephengandel: this is a channel of people who expect bitcoin to be the world reserve currency.
mircea_popescu: it proved do be only temporary, they may end up with a loss.
mircea_popescu: it's a very volatile market.
mircea_popescu: dexX7 if the chinese also shoot them, i'll be very impressed.

mircea_popescu: by BingoBoingo's 2015 megaparty they'd better be diamond studded and made out of frozen panda tears.
kakobrekla: and i drive half a mio usd car.
mircea_popescu: well at least it has injection.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I imagine by 2022 on the 10th anniversary of MPEx the diamonds would be synthesized from the panda tears.
mircea_popescu: but yeah, wait until bentley figures out that there's these dudes who routinely pay 500k for a car and don't even expect it to fly.
BingoBoingo: kakobrekla: I've always preferred the 500 usd cars. It's hard to feel guilty when you make them fly.

mircea_popescu: in completely unrelated news,
mircea_popescu: "By making their product or artwork display neotenous traits, designers attempt to sway people to enjoy or desire their product because it appears childish, adorable, soft or otherwise desirable. By making a product cute, the nucleus accumbens in the human brain is targeted and elicits a protective or coddling response, which encourages an individual to acquire (purchase) said item. By designing items, characters, food
mircea_popescu: or anything else in this manner, product designers attempt to create the same reaction to a product that a human baby could create."
BingoBoingo: This describes S.NSA
mircea_popescu: so basically designers should be round up and shot.

mircea_popescu: yes.
ozbot: porsche using EMP device on Mullet Ride (to keep from being passed @ thunderhill) - YouTube

mircea_popescu: jamespeerless no minimum bet so far.
mircea_popescu: <<
ozbot: MIT genuises with lightbulb - YouTube

Bunnyh: is the NO on bitbet charts really gray? seems teal to me
mircea_popescu: Bunnyh im colorblind.
truffles: why'd he take em snackman?
Bunnyh: ok,i thought i am
mircea_popescu: snackman it's not a nickname dood. that's my name.
mircea_popescu: jamespeerless the reason is that we're oldfags, which means rich, which means with a lot of old coinbases, which means tx are free. or something.
jamespeerless: what do you mean? why would they be free
mircea_popescu: the prioritization of txs takes into account the concept of "bitcoin days destroyed"
mircea_popescu: that's the product of a coinbase's volume with its age.
snackman: truffles: because my transaction was not confirmed in time
snackman: truffles: it was placed on the correct bet though
mircea_popescu: so if you have 1k btc that weren't moved for 3 years, you get about 1mn times the priority of a 1btc that was moved yest.
jamespeerless: got it
jamespeerless: makes sense
truffles: snackman gotta read fine prints
mircea_popescu: in principle it's good for the network to keep moving coins around, i suspect.
kakobrekla: imo just bigger chain
mircea_popescu: or at least satoshi thought so for some reason.
kakobrekla: why
kakobrekla: where
mircea_popescu: it's one of the points i don't quite grasp tbh
snackman: truffles: they weren't, they were FAQs, and i never agreed to them, also this particular clause was *surprising*, therefore not applicable for yet another reason
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla well because of the particular design, seems implicit in it.
ThickAsThieves: Hey MP, how bout a compromise, put "Late Bets Will Be Retained" or such on the Send Bitcoins page of bitbet
snackman: mircea_popescu is only not returning them because he assumes that it is unlikely that i will sue him in romania
truffles: so ur situation was outside of terms ?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves the problem with this approach is that 1. it empowers nonsense and 2. it bloats pages.
Vexual: faqs are accepted to form contract
snackman: truffles: yet, because the txn was sent before, it only arrived later because nobody confirmed it
dub: interestingly educatoin in .us and .ro sucks somewhat equally
mike_c: i always took the priority the opposite, that is - it is discouraging moving coins too much by giving recently spent coins lower priority
kakobrekla: mircea_popescu not like you can mitigate it
snackman: Vexual: yes, if they explicitely ask you to confirm them, which they didnt
dub: though dumb romanians are smarter than dumb americans
snackman: Vexual: also only if there are no surprising clauses
mircea_popescu: mike_c when i say move coins around i mean, not have very old coinbases.
ThickAsThieves: so you dont think "reasonable man" is a concept to consider?
snackman: ?
ThickAsThieves: a reasonable man would likely assume his bet would either be valid at the time of sending, or refunded at a fee
Vexual: a reasonable man reads the contract
snackman: mircea_popescu has forgotten the current btc price, making my loss around 12000 usd, making it more than worth pursing a lawyer. also for the satisfaction of seeing this bastard lose in court
truffles: snackman i get what ure saying, id already have refunded u if it were my biz though, gl
ThickAsThieves: a reasonable contract typically wouldnt have snares
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves a reasonable man would not send bitcoin on the basis of his assumptions.
snackman: truffles: thanks.
mircea_popescu: otherwise the reasonable man can start sending to random addresses.
snackman: mircea_popescu: nice non sequitur
snackman: mircea_popescu: and nice attempt derailing his point
ThickAsThieves: do what you want, i;m just sayin youll likely have this problem continually
mike_c: seriously, if it is such an important amount of money why didn't you do a little research first? doesn't that seem wrong to you at all?

snackman: mike_c: there was not much time left
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves well, i'm doing what i think is right, and in so doing i'm preventing others from having the same sort of problem all the time.
mike_c: right.. so you should not have done it.
snackman: mike_c: also, i followed the basic rules: bet on what you think will win
mircea_popescu: the space in which bitcoin busienss will happen is primarily shapen by what sort of precedent we create for it.
ThickAsThieves: <mircea_popescu> ThickAsThieves well, i'm doing what i think is right, and in so doing i'm preventing others from having the same sort of problem all the time. <<< fair enough
snackman: mircea_popescu: you are a scum to the bitcoin economy and community
snackman: mircea_popescu: you are but a leach, you are what is disgraceful in human beings
mircea_popescu: snackman im the largest thing in it ya klutz.
ThickAsThieves: snackman you would be a good diplomat
snackman: ThickAsThieves: why?
mike_c: snackman: can you settle a bet for me. have you placed any more bets on bitbet yet?
ThickAsThieves: you have a way with words
snackman: mircea_popescu: then why would 10btc matter to you?
ThickAsThieves: he just said why
mike_c: cmon snack, fess up. you've place more bets haven't you :)
ThickAsThieves: because he feels his policy helps create the kind of world he wants to live in
snackman: ThickAsThieves: why would i be a good diplomat?
ThickAsThieves: you wouldnt
ThickAsThieves: it's a joke
ThickAsThieves: you suck at convincing people to help you
truffles: i dont think u want him to be more convincing
mike_c: i will send you 0.001 btc if you answer me. it will help you recover.

snackman: my address?
mike_c: if you want the 0.0001 btc i promised
mike_c: er, 0.001
Duffer1: i don't believe they would have to lie to keep your money, there must be something i'm missing
dub: mike_c: make sure you pay the fee
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 a 10 page forum thread
mike_c: lol
Duffer1: not like my opinion matters at all in this anyways, i was just curious
Duffer1: erf, i'll pass, hehe

snackman: mike_c: 16TNs3DYjkGZrnEW4KV7ust6sWU3Esk7eW
mircea_popescu: in 2020 mike_c will be all like "well sonny, i remember back in the old days, mp was there, and i sent this kid a whole bitcent on a lark"
mike_c: hehe
dexX7: Duffer1: problem was actually that the bet was already resolved when his tx/bet was confirmed which - according to bitbet's faq - entitles bitbet to keep the coins
mircea_popescu: "yeap. that's how it was back then..."
Vexual: and the lawyer got paid a three yeart retainer on that one case...
jamespeerless: mircea_popescu: do you know if sendmany only charges one transaction fee regardless of # of recipients?
Vexual: one tx, one fee
mircea_popescu: jamespeerless i knowandit does.
mircea_popescu: andineed a newspacebar
jamespeerless: what about the 'per kb' rules? i think i read somewhere that 5 recipients is about 1kb? any merit to that?
dub: looking back on how much a trilemna page view cost should be fun
mircea_popescu: jamespeerless the recipients aren't the problem. it's about 60 bytes per

mircea_popescu: use your noggin for thinking : if my return from hanging out here were actually negative, i wouldn't or else i'd have you sent off.

snackman: make no sense

mircea_popescu: i'm just saying, talking to random peeps on irc isn't stressing me, it's mildly enjoyable.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Clarification on a much earlier point of yours. No lawyers presentinga criminal defense, but lawyers are fine arguing in civil cases?

mike_c: nah
mircea_popescu: dub no i'm not, im under 50%

jamespeerless: why do you even have share holders? why not just run it yourself?
mircea_popescu: snackman except if the bet closes early, cause that means the weight was out of whack.
mircea_popescu: jamespeerless i'm trying to build bitcoin into an actual thing.
jamespeerless: by running a gambling website?
mircea_popescu: by running all sorts of things correctly.
BingoBoingo: jamespeerless: A great gambling website. I've won moar there than I lost on Satoshidice.
turbo_ac100: prediction market. please!
ThickAsThieves`: maybe bitbet should have a setting for each bet for rate of weight loss
ThickAsThieves`: a curve
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves` it was in the original spec
mircea_popescu: we cut it out, because curve notation is more than the average person can grok mentally
snackman: mircea_popescu: are you satoshi?
mircea_popescu: and having it graphical turned out to be insanely difficult.
ThickAsThieves`: so use gfx
snackman: mircea_popescu: if you are, i take everything back, the megalomania is justified
ThickAsThieves`: make 3 options
mike_c: same rationale as 3-way resolutions
mircea_popescu: snackman no, i'm nick szabo.
snackman: mircea_popescu: so that's a yes
ThickAsThieves`: fast regular slow
BingoBoingo: ThickAsThieves`: What's next? Allowing bet creators to specify elliptic curves the bet weight passes through as it degrades over time?
ThickAsThieves`: yes, thats what we are talking about
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves` what's wrong with just setting the weight end point to 80k or w.e ?
dub: appears we are past acceptance and into the dick slurping phase of grief
ThickAsThieves`: i think maybe i misunderstood end weight all along
ThickAsThieves`: which now seems obvious
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves` and you wanteds me to implement splines.
snackman: mircea_popescu: admit it dude
snackman: mircea_popescu: this entire escapade of mine was to test your style

mircea_popescu: Duffer1 it probably has something to do with post communism.
Duffer1: oh lawd you're not helping mp lol
BingoBoingo: snackman: The simple answer is to get your bets in much earlier. As close to opening as possible. Just draw a bullseye on a piece of paper and jack off. If more cum is on the right bet yes. On the left bet no.
snackman: mircea_popescu: not being engrained into mainstream economics by birth certainly helped you
snackman: BingoBoingo: the conversation moved on, screw the play money, i have a much bigger fish to catch
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo do you have a bitbeteratorium ?
benkay: snackman: fishing for buttcorns?
ThickAsThieves`: sending an email to wikimedia re: donation request pop-up:
ThickAsThieves`: No bitcoin option? Fairweather friends get no shine.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Maybe? Maybe instead of the paper bullseye though I hire a pair of tits. I'm trying to imagine snackman's budget though.
snackman: benkay: i have enough, thank you. i got in early
benkay: snackman: your aggro over 10 seems unwarranted then
mircea_popescu: it's incredible how many people that got in early showed up late.
mircea_popescu: we'd have never guessed in like, 2012.
BingoBoingo: snackman: Actually in IRC everything is roughly on topic for at least 24 hours after it was last mention provided you scroll up
benkay: snackman holds all the buttcorns. it's his private pre-mined altcoin, mircea_popescu, not actual bitcoins.
snackman: benkay: please read the last 5 minutes. the entire thing was an act, carefully orchestrated, and mircea_popescu fell for it graciously
benkay: that's what he means by "got in early"
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: To be fair before you showed it was pretty much just the dev circle jerk and the Silk Road honey pot
mircea_popescu: then mp said "let there be tits1

mircea_popescu: jamespeerless how do you identify who sent which ?
BingoBoingo: jamespeerless: So people can continue betting on the same position
mircea_popescu: there's numerous advantages.
jamespeerless: mircea_popescu: can't you read the from address in the transaction block?
mircea_popescu: you can but you don't want to, because this way people can send from webwallets or w/e
BingoBoingo: Sometimes you wanna hedge. Sometimes you wanna take all of the position.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 45 @ 0.33513812 = 15.0812 BTC [-] {3}
mircea_popescu: cause if 5 peopel sent from the same wallet to the same bet your identifiocation scheme would fail
mircea_popescu: also because if i sent the winnings to the address that sent the bet people would end up fucked if they sent from a wallet.
mircea_popescu: (as most wallets don't have any way to associate their payment system to their users)

mircea_popescu: not practical for a web wallet to allocate addresses to users
mircea_popescu: because it has to coldstore its btc
jamespeerless: ah got it
jamespeerless: makes sense
mircea_popescu: snackman maybe he didn't include a tx fee ?
jamespeerless: seems like most wallets let you generate receiving addresses though
snackman: mircea_popescu: bahahhaahah

Kleeck_: ThickAsThieves`, are you joking about HashFast scamming?
asciilifeform: maybe i'm just behind the times. but, picture some bozo: 'i'ma build a skyscraper. here's lots of pictures of my bulldozers, cranes! here's some cement mixers!'
Kleeck_: No. You are current with the times.
ThickAsThieves`: Kleeck I am not joking
Kleeck_: I could walk into my datacenter and snap a bunch of awesome pictures. It doesn't mean I'm mining a damn thing.
Kleeck_: ThickAsThieves`, any data that lead you that direction? I have no skin in that game, but I've wondered. It's just a hunch.
ThickAsThieves`: a friend is considering legal counsel against Hashfast
asciilifeform: the sane people version: 'built a skyscraper. here's what it'll cost ya per sq. m. come in?'
mike_c: snackman: have some faith! my wallet is sync'ing. you'll have it soon.
ThickAsThieves`: that's all i know

dexX7: hashfast is not shipping/delayed more than a month now
Kleeck_: Don't they have a compensation program?
dexX7: they have some strange refund policies, if you mean that
snackman: ThickAsThieves`: why is hashfast scamming?
ThickAsThieves`: same reason as all scammers i assume
ThickAsThieves`: it was the plan, or it became the plan
asciilifeform: man jumps in front of moving bus. considers legal action against bus.
Kleeck_: The cost of being legit is far less appealing than the old "cut and run" I'd assume.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform originally this started as a hobbyst project.
mircea_popescu: people don't have 10k laying around the house.
mircea_popescu: consequently, the first fpga's were pretty much a potluck affair
mircea_popescu: that system worked
mircea_popescu: (everyone delivered, even bfl)
mircea_popescu: it was stretched past its usability into insanity by a desperate desire and need for stability. bitcoin doesn't offer much of that,
mircea_popescu: so people naturally tried to stick to what works
mircea_popescu: that's pretty much the story of how we ended up with the insanity.
mircea_popescu: Kleeck_ people fail to correctly value reputations.
Kleeck_: There is some truth to that, mircea_popescu.
mircea_popescu: there's a lot of truth to it. let's lay it out : bozo comes in when bitcoin is 1 year old, can start a reputation within a week and be doing business within am onth.
mircea_popescu: he imagines the value of this is 1 month.
mircea_popescu: two years later, he needs to be 1 year+ old to be even considered, because now bitcoin is 4 years old.
BingoBoingo: Seems for Litecoin devotees this insanity is going to be magnified as CoinDesk has just reprinted so many people's "press releases" about impending litecoin ASICs and if a single manufacterer delivers it will have meant Litecoin skipped that awkward FPGA adolescence while still staying a fraction of a fraction of bitcoin
mircea_popescu: he goes on forum as a week old and is shocked at how mean people are, telling him to do 6 motynhs + of reading before he opens his mouth again
mircea_popescu: somewhere in there he failed to account for the fact that having kept his reputation intact for those two years is just about as valuable as having kept his bitcoins for two years.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 830 @ 0.00289 = 2.3987 BTC [+]

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 568 @ 0.00289784 = 1.646 BTC [+] {3}

mircea_popescu: things like "some chick is crazy enough to produce a pic of a large wooden object stuck in her snatch" is one thing
mircea_popescu: "some guy makes an airplane" is altogether different
BingoBoingo: For all we know the person bankrolling LTC ASICs could be Curt Schilling and the Engineer could be some kid he picked on in highschool who merely has to fulfill the objective of making any LTC capable scrypt ASIC at all. Not necessarily anything close to a profitable scrypt asic.
mircea_popescu: for all we know i'm satoshi, and you're snackman
BingoBoingo: Of course. Maybe I'm Usagi?

mircea_popescu: you got too big tits and too much beard to be usagi.
cazalla: thought Curt Schilling was bankrupt after his no show mmorpg
BingoBoingo: I may have plenty of beard, but I'll be damned if my tits are bigger than a grown man named Oliver's.
mircea_popescu: cazalla me too actually.
BingoBoingo: cazalla: Bankruptcy is just a fresh start
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo well one's enough.
snackman: mircea_popescu: i'm snackman
benkay: no i'm snackman
cazalla: i don't know if any of you played EQ but Curt Schilling was a regular on fohguild forums

asciilifeform: dust TX, if they exist, could be interesting. bit flips from cosmic rays?
asciilifeform: as seen here:
dub: it happens
asciilifeform: phun phact: most public key cryptosystems cough up key bits in this scenario.
asciilifeform: consider the trivial case of RSA with lowest bit in 'p' or 'q' (pubkey = PxQ) flipped.
dub: wonder if there is any research into encouraging them
asciilifeform: suddenly 'p' (or 'q') is composite.
KRS|gotyawallet: Ruh roh
ozbot: Do You Know Your Crypto Currencies? - YouTube
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Maybe you linked this, but I recall finding a paper on how SPARC chips can leak RSA keys given an attacker feeding the system sertain kinds of voltage fluctuations.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: this is by no means particular to SPARC
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: I imagine not.
asciilifeform: if the probability of a 'cough' is sufficiently large, any system that can be 'milked' for RSA exchanges is vulnerable.
BingoBoingo: Well, the Cardano uses a battery for a reason...
asciilifeform: moral: 1) single-tasking machine 2) performing crypto-ops when you want, and not when internet asks 1000x/sec.; 3) battery belongs to you and physically visible
asciilifeform: 4) change keys sometimes.
BingoBoingo: 5) if everything else fails
asciilifeform: anybody feeling particularly energetic is invited to carry out an experiment:
asciilifeform: 'dust telescope.'
asciilifeform: run blockchain; generate as many random addrs as will fit on disk...
asciilifeform: helps if you have a reasonable entropy source, but not essential for this application.
asciilifeform: then countdown until fools start pushing 'dust miner bonds', l33t, 11111....
dub: still seems like a rather larger collision space than some well known short domain names
asciilifeform: large - but finite.
asciilifeform: in fact, bonus points if you use a known turd for an entropy source
asciilifeform: that others, generating addrs in the past, may have used...
