Bugpowder: (not that that is a big thing)
BingoBoingo: Honeslty it is probably worth an amount such that you yourself would have to pay to get an honest answer
mircea_popescu: not that, really, but anyway. seriously pizzaman1337, it's impossible to make a definitive call like that in the current circumstance.
mircea_popescu: we're not imo in dangerous territory, and that's all i care about.
pizzaman1337: ok, just curious

KRS|Gotyawallet: mircea_popescu: I was wondering about a follow-up on that one, much time has passed in btc time.
KRS|Gotyawallet: "stop buying bitcoin"
mircea_popescu: i thought we just covered that.
mircea_popescu: moving on, did i mention body stockings are kinda cool ? they should put this in seventeen or w/e kids read, "if you don't own a coupla good ones you're no woman"

mircea_popescu: which by now of course does more in a day than the fiat stock exchanges combined in a week

xoinfinityox: @mircea - good article. this might be a dumb Q but whats the danger of controlling interest in BTC?
mircea_popescu: it may be dumb, but i don't get what it is asking ?
xoinfinityox: you talk about a 51% attack
xoinfinityox: what is that?
mircea_popescu: a 51% attack is the situation where one party controls a majority of mining.
xoinfinityox: why is that dangerous in a BTC context?
mircea_popescu: that party can then do some nefarious choosing in the transactions that get accepted and then rolled back
mircea_popescu: resulting in untrustworthy btc conveyance for as long as their 51% position lasts
mircea_popescu: can of course does not equal will, but giving that sort of an option to anyone is anathema to the bitcoin philosophy and the expectations built around it.
xoinfinityox: gotcha
xoinfinityox: @monolithik thx
mircea_popescu: yeah, the stack exchange link is on point.
xoinfinityox: i gotcha, they can get out in front of the actual chain
mircea_popescu: we're roughly past the point where this is feasible, which is one of the major things tghat changed since back in spring.
monolithik: network consolidation is definitely a problem. Best case scenario IMO: ASIC development hits the point where an increase in ghash/watt would be reducible to a general improvement in human knowledge of semiconductors. At that point bitcoin ASICs will become commoditized like Intel CPUs, and the distribution of hashpower would settle to some equilibrium where power was not too widely concentrated
mircea_popescu: monolithik i tell you, it's when upscale bathrooms come with miners in the tile
mircea_popescu: that's the endgame.
xoinfinityox: i would prefer to be a slumlord with the same tiles
monolithik: question: will people run miners unprofitably to ensure that nobody has a majority share?
Duffer1: mircea what do you base your assumption on that us/china govs are hashing?
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 not rly an assumption. ppl have asked before, but i never said anything.
xoinfinityox: mono: i think once you get the market consolidated to a few big players, they will compete pretty fiercely
mircea_popescu: monolithik mining is roughly slightly unprofitable on the spot today, and has been for a while. on the long term it will remain so.
xoinfinityox: the value of their own coins vs the risk of losing them should keep from cartelizing
Duffer1: if it's not an assumption then how do you know?
mircea_popescu: the thing is, cartels are not really profitable.
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 that's what i do, i spy.
monolithik: will people abandon bitcoin if some kind of nefarious mining cartel forms? Is that enough of a disencentive for the miners to do so?
monolithik: so far, the system has shown to be incentive-safe in practice
xoinfinityox: i dont think mining cartels would really be profitable or efficient
mircea_popescu: people will definitely abandon bitcoin if it fucks up. hash concentration is one such fuckup.
mircea_popescu: implementing any sort of legal controls is more of such a fuckup.
xoinfinityox: for large entities like nations (banks?) i think the value / advantage of ownership would keep them mining
monolithik: agreed. what is your opinion of libbitcoin/darkwallet initiatives?
monolithik: that was directed toward mircea
mircea_popescu: monolithik probably too soon to have one.
monolithik: I read some of the libbitcoin source. It is high quality.
mircea_popescu: the wilson guy definitely means well. i don't see he;s delivering any value yet, but it's way too early. the other thing sounds like it means well, same situation.
monolithik: extensive use of boost::asio for purely async networking.
monolithik: I don't know about most of the other people involved, but Amir Taaki is a talented engineer.
mircea_popescu: he's also bitcoin's chief retard.
monolithik: yeah he is pretty terrible as a spokesperson. But his code is good
mircea_popescu: seems of late he's taken to heart the invitation to do less of the speaking.
mircea_popescu: that can't hurt anything.
monolithik: yeah. I agree with the need to have multiple implementations. Right now the main point of centralization is the core development team.
xoinfinityox: what articles on trilema are required reading for getting started with btc?
Duffer1: all of them
monolithik: Obviously there are difficulties with ensuring that they all interoperate properly, but that just leads to better standardization, which is good.
mircea_popescu: that's kinda dying, really. anyway, yes, it's a good use of resources and has been for a while to try and specify the code. bar that, alternate implementations may work.
mircea_popescu: xoinfinityox hit the bitcoin category, can't hurt anything.
mircea_popescu: maybe even make your own list and publish it somewhere.
xoinfinityox: sorry for the total n00b question
xoinfinityox: i'm trying to give myself the crash course
mircea_popescu: monolithik exactly. also, if there's going to be improvements to the concept, they may be discovered this way. atm we don't really know what utterly sucks in bitcoin.
Duffer1: xoinfinityox for the technical, trilema for perspective
mircea_popescu: sort-of like nobody figured out why ruby on rails utterly sucks until they had tried to make websites in it for a few years and they could never get one secure. then it was pretty clear.
monolithik: mircea: I think that bitcoin or a direct descendant (i.e. forked from the current chain, not some premined crap) will win. It's classic "worse is better".
mircea_popescu: but yeah, Duffer1 has a point, trilema isn't exactly a manual, more like that one asshole instructor in karate that just beats the shit out of you and then laughs.
Duffer1: hehe
mircea_popescu: monolithik i agree, but that means little in the context.
mircea_popescu: for instance, people in fiat think fiat will win.
monolithik: (I don't think we are disagreeing with eachother) the best technology doesn't always win. The one that is first to market that is un-shitty enough to provide some value wins.
monolithik: thats why I think altcoins are futile.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 10 @ 0.28039999 = 2.804 BTC [+] {3}
xoinfinityox: what really distinguishes most altcoins at this point anyway?
Duffer1: quite a lot actually
Duffer1: lower transaction times, different proofs work
Duffer1: proofs of stake
benkay: what's more important is their unifying theme of irrelevance.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I believe Vircurex is now the Canonical example of the failure of RoR to accomplish anything
Duffer1: there's legit innovation that should occur, alts serve that purpose
benkay: nah. 10m/block is fine
mircea_popescu: monolithik perhaps many alt chains are futile. keeping one on hand just in case makes some sense tho
mircea_popescu: or at least the mkt seems to think so.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo nah, davout's site is the cannonical example opf that.
monolithik: i think that the idea of using a memory-hard hash function (e.g. scrypt a la litecoin) is good, but not enough of a gain to offset the network effects of all the infrastructure built up around btc
toffoo: so mircea_popescu getting back to us/china gov mining, did you just make that up or is it based on any kind of evidence?
mircea_popescu: i didn't just make it up.

xoinfinityox: might as well protect those assets
toffoo: maybe in 5-10years it makes sense, not in 2013
xoinfinityox: gotta protect for the future by starting now
mircea_popescu: toffoo summer of 2013,a ctually.
mircea_popescu: it became a definite a coupla months back, but they had been doing it for a while.
xoinfinityox: I understand mircea not wanting to drop his sources, but I would think you can follow an appropriations bill or something to find the proof
benkay: unless the pentagon's doing it.
benkay: unless any bureau with acceptable operational financing is doing it.
benkay: unless anyone with any real power is behind it.
xoinfinityox: i guess it depends on the purpose

xoinfinityox: thats kind of what i'mgetting at
benkay: much like walmart does not hate women and want to prevent them from earning dollar parity with men, the .75/1.00 ratio is the accumulation of many individual's decisions
Duffer1: if confirmed i expect the price will rocket
benkay: bafflement and confusion? inability to comprehend relevance of statement?
benkay: i kid..
xoinfinityox: i agree with you that if the goal is defense/intelligence/law enforcement keeping it secret is preferrable
benkay: let's play a thought game
xoinfinityox: or wanting to do anything shady with it
benkay: we sit down to a poker game
benkay: wherein you derive some small benefit from knowing what i plan to do and the motivations behind it
benkay: why would any competent actor in the scenario disclose targets goals strategies or philosophies!?
xoinfinityox: i don't think your analogy fits the situation
xoinfinityox: this isn't about strategy, its about whether the US is playing the game at all
xoinfinityox: a better analogy might be, you sit down and the guy across from you is phil helmuth, or its some random guy
benkay: no, they are playing the game. you were making some sort of claim about their goals vis-a-vis sketchiness.
xoinfinityox: that isn't confirmed at this point
xoinfinityox: i don't doubt mircea's veracity, but one source does not a fact makee
benkay: well by the time one waits for confirmation of a fact the market has long since priced it in typically
xoinfinityox: did the market move based on mircea's article?
Duffer1: germany timezone waking up
xoinfinityox: i'm not trying to argue here - still trying to figure out how this market works
mircea_popescu: <Duffer1> if confirmed i expect the price will rocket << you know it was announced before btc rocketed ?
benkay: arguing is all -assets does, xoinfinityox ;)
xoinfinityox: well in that case...
xoinfinityox: party on ;)
Duffer1: announced?
mircea_popescu: Duffer1 yes, that 16th of oct article linked earlier, is where it was announced. toffoo has been asking me about whence and wherefore ever since.
Duffer1: ah i see
mircea_popescu: put that timeline on a graph.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 11 @ 0.0487 = 0.5357 BTC [-]
benkay: and people wonder why mining is unprofitable.
toffoo: I just saw the article for the first time today, when you linked it earlier..
mircea_popescu: i wonder who was hounding me the next day then hm
mircea_popescu: benkay kinda designed to be that way ya kno ?
toffoo: if it turns there's some truth to the statement, color me surprised
Duffer1: maybe toffo with one o? :P
xoinfinityox: im curious why other news outlets don't pick it up
benkay: yeah i don't quite understand that, mircea_popescu.
Duffer1: no proof = not really newsworthy, regardless of who says it
mircea_popescu: a no twasn't him. my bad.
Duffer1: in this case it's still probably worth paying attention to though

benkay: mircea_popescu: yeah but fail to draw the dots
xoinfinityox: like i said, i'm a total noob at btc but prooof that gov'ts are mining would be a huge headline
mircea_popescu: xoinfinityox i guess that may be interesting in the sense pointing the spot lights at airplane wrecks could be interesting. meanwhile in the real war...
benkay: nubbins`: but rational market participants won't buy if their investment never returns, so how does unprofitable mining work forever?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3868 @ 0.00090627 = 3.5055 BTC [-]
benkay: or even ever, as a part of the thing?
mircea_popescu: benkay well, the hash power is designed to be commodified. this means it'll always sell just a shade under average cost.
xoinfinityox: i know, im at a really topical level right now
nubbins`: benkay: rational market participants are absent, for starters
xoinfinityox: so accepting that fact as true, where is the real war?
mircea_popescu: rational market participants are individually rational.
nubbins`: benkay: the people buying mining hardware are falling over themselves trying to get it hashing as fast as possible, so they maximize their returns
benkay: some get their goods at an acceptable rate and delivered on an acceptable time, making money etc. this drives others in who make less excellent ops decisions, ruining margin.
mircea_popescu: " Each proposal to do so looked like an immediate winner. Measured by standard return-on-investment tests, in fact, these proposals usually promised greater economic benefits than would have resulted from comparable expenditures in our highly-profitable candy and newspaper businesses."
nubbins`: sure
mircea_popescu: "Viewed individually, each company's capital investment decision appeared cost-effective and rational; viewed collectively, the decisions neutralized each other and were irrational, just as happens when each person watching a parade decides he can see a little better if he stands on tiptoes."
benkay: your lessons as always appreciated.
benkay: apparently i had to read that post 5 times before it made sense in context.
benkay: and must read it another 5 for penance.

davout: heh it doesn't, just trying to think about whether there are edge cases that your solution doesn't cover, because you know, that's what i do :)
mircea_popescu: don't let me dissuiade you, it's a good thing.
davout: nobody dissuades david francois of nitpicking on edge cases
davout: but from what i understand, simply adding an order id to the reported executions isn't really trivial on your end
mircea_popescu: pgp god ?
davout: heh

the20year2: And that's since the last part of July
mircea_popescu: how many units is 192k ?!
Duffer1: rental starter?
the20year2: units? As in properties?
the20year2: Duffer1: yes
mike_c: re: translations. I have had good success with programmatically getting good human translations from
Duffer1: cool
mircea_popescu: the20year2 yes as in properties
the20year2: Yes, just two houses
mircea_popescu: except units, ie, independently leased parts of a property.
the20year2: In my area, the median home value is around $100k, and most of what we're looking at are going in the ~$30,000 range
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [DEALCO] 100 @ 0.00339966 = 0.34 BTC [+] {5}
mircea_popescu: so how do you gain confidence in your equity evaluation ?
ThickAsThieves: probly holds bitcoins
the20year2: I've had 3rd parties assess the liquidation value as well as my own value estimates since I've been in the business of evaluating properties for every large financial firm in the US
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 7406 @ 0.00012 = 0.8887 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: and what makes you confident you can efficiently deploy capital ? in what limits ?
Duffer1: are you counting btc appreciation on top of your units for your total equity #?
the20year2: No Duffer1
the20year2: That's covered in the business plan mircea_popescu. We feel that we can deploy around $100k of capital per month
the20year2: (Into new properties/purchases that is)
Duffer1: ^.^
mircea_popescu: well alright, so send the thing over.
the20year2: the BTC appreciation is another ball game and hard for me to personally value. When everything was running on bitfunder decently, our values kept doing well, even as BTC/USD started to gain
mikaeldice: Spending it seems to be the easy part :)
the20year2: Not exactly
the20year2: in this case, you have to have teams of workers to do the rehab work , qualify tenants. Sure, you can spend more money to 'just get it done', but if you do that you pay retail for everything, and you can't make money by paying what everyone else does
mircea_popescu: started is one thing. btc went up what, 50x this year.
Duffer1: sorry i haven't followed rental starter at all, are you registered DPO or did you ipo?
Duffer1: direct private offer
the20year2: We IPO'd on bitfunder, but are now private/direct due to them shutting down
Duffer1: but not legally registered though right?
ozbot: [Direct] RentalStarter - A Midwest Real Estate Investment Company
the20year2: Yes, we're registered in Hong Kong and the United states. The hong kong company is connected to the US one through a legal service agreement
the20year2: DBA Full Power Asia Investments LTD in Hong Kong
Duffer1: thanks, i should probably stop being lazy and just read hehe

Duffer1: if you're interested in being squeky clean that is hehe :P
the20year2: Our lawyer has made me aware of the requirements, the issue here is that I don't know of any US investors that we have, SEC allows me to file a PPM if/when I'm notified of US investors ,and since startup we've barred US investment
the20year2: We've very seriously looked at doing a DPO but I can't round up enough investment to justify it
Duffer1: ah, i was under the impression that even if you were operating in the US you'd have to register
the20year2: The company that collects funding is not in the US
Duffer1: i see
the20year2: The funds are sent to a LTD operated in the Hong Kong, of which I am not the director, there is a two way service agremeent between the two entities, according to what my personal understanding is, it can work that way. if we take on US investors, it needs to be done so at the US LLC level, and we then need to register
the20year2: We'll qualify for most US crowdfunding and DPO laws next year as we're bringing a accounting firm into the mix in Janurary when we have our first book audit
Duffer1: do you take a salary?
the20year2: I am the majority shareholder in the company, there is also a 15% management fee that comes into place. In order to comply with US tax laws, I take my dividends + management fee as salary
Duffer1: cool, looks like a solid project, good luck :)
the20year2: So far, so good. I Just thought early on that banks would be more open to adding us to portfolo lending
the20year2: If that was the case there'd be no problem and i wouldn't give a care about listing anywhere
Duffer1: hehehe
Duffer1: they'd be funding their competition in multiple ways if they backed you
Duffer1: they want dat real estate, they don't want bitcoin to live
the20year2: none of the banks i talk to know about bitcoin
the20year2: And there's no reason for me to tell them that investors are being paid in bitcoin. ALl they know is that there's a out-of-country service agreement
