balulasch: hello
balulasch: I visited 2 days ago and looked at the total wagered Bitcoins. Cant remember the exact number but as I visited today I could swear that the number was at least 10,000BTC higher. This means there must be a very huge volume. Considering the fact that bit777 is the property of makes the companys stock worth on havelock seem heavily underrated imho..

mircea_popescu: so far 1000:1 odds lol

Neil: Gotta say despite the odds I'm not gonna bet No on that one.
balulasch_: new 2weekly report coming soon
mircea_popescu: Neil nuts.
mircea_popescu: i mean i fully understand you, but from an "outside" perspective, right ? fucking nuts.
mircea_popescu: perhaps this is the best line to explain to noobs why bitcoin is so powerful :
mircea_popescu: "honey, there's a 1000:1 bet that berkshire will outperform bitcoin in 2014, and i'm not taking it"
Neil: You mean, if you're not a bitcoin believer? Then yeah. But I'm quite confident BTC will outperform Berkshire.
mircea_popescu: kinda why the article is adressed to the would-be financiers of wallstreet and generally the world's pretend-bankers.
ThickAsThieves: it also has to outperform USD inflation
Neil: Unfortunately those who don't believe in bitcoin will not have bitcoin to spend on the bet :)
mircea_popescu: none of them will make 1k btc in 2014. so why aren't they ?
mircea_popescu: "they choose not to run", perhaps ?
Neil: Or will say their winnings will be near-worthless, yadda yadda.

mircea_popescu: no resources, no skill, no talent, no ability, no brains, perhaps ?
ThickAsThieves: the excuse will be, I don't wanna have to buy bitcoins to bet against bitcoin
Neil: Would be funny if Buffett bet 1k BTC on the other side tho.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves anyway, that's the genius of it :D
Neil: I'd join in then.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 2 @ 0.052399 = 0.1048 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: Neil so mail him.
ThickAsThieves: and Buffet would say of this bet, "The bet is a perfect example of why Bitcoin is a bad investment, it is speculation and gambling at its purest!"
chetty: purity :D
mircea_popescu: "no intrinsic value in this bet"
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves oddly, he doesn't say the same of government-sponsored transfer of wealth from the middle class to the lower class. that's fine, iho.
ThickAsThieves: well he can only lean on the inertia of BRK so hard til it falls over
ThickAsThieves: in less than a year I learned a bunch of stuff about Buffet, and then the first letter I get to read as it is release, reads like satire
ThickAsThieves: kinda surreal
ThickAsThieves: released*
mircea_popescu: well, we should be so lucky to live to be our own parodies.
mircea_popescu: or perhaps not.
mircea_popescu: i guess the world is split in tow sorts of people : those who aspire to be so lucky to live to be our own parodies, and those who aspire to be so lucky to die before that.
ThickAsThieves: Yes is already a losing bet in BitBet calc, lol
ThickAsThieves: i aalways thought most people lived as parodies of themselves
mircea_popescu: i guess that's also true...
mircea_popescu: btw, someone dump the trilema article on reddit will you ? i wanna see them writhe.
nubbins`: living as a parody of pop culture is more common
ThickAsThieves: it's a feedback loop
mircea_popescu: speaking of which "kardashian is a hobbit" sp kicked ass.

Diablo-D3: bitcoin brony baron bets bitcoin beats berkshire
mircea_popescu: sort of insanely funny subdued lolz.
balulasch_: mircea_popescu did you set up this bet?
ThickAsThieves: balulaash, do you read?
mircea_popescu: Diablo-D3 but i'm not a brony. perhaps the only bitcoin veteran in this sad situation.
Diablo-D3: mircea_popescu: only b word I could think of
Diablo-D3: well one that'd increase views
balulasch_: cant believe someone bet 1000btc on this
mircea_popescu: which reminds me, when i was a kid there was this wrestler dubbed bam bam biggelow
ThickAsThieves: i remember him
Diablo-D3: that was a looooooooooooong time ago
Diablo-D3: that was like, hulk hogan era
Diablo-D3: back when people still watched it
balulasch_: tatanka
ThickAsThieves: Koko B Ware
mircea_popescu: yeah was before sena died and they fucked up f1
mircea_popescu: kinda stopped watching it that year.
Diablo-D3: mircea_popescu: who?
mircea_popescu: Ayrton Senna
Diablo-D3 never watched wrestling as a kid, it was too much like soap operas for men
Diablo-D3: only had friends who watched it and they wouldnt shut up about it
Diablo-D3: and had fucking tshirts and shit
balulasch_: i have friends who still watch it after 15yrs
balulasch_: and they take it for real
Diablo-D3: well I remember everyone quit watching it, then they had that NWO shit
balulasch_: somehow
Diablo-D3: then the NWO shit wore out and then they went to college
ThickAsThieves: due to them being the same day, i have an odd association with WWF and Catechism as a child
Diablo-D3: I mean, I have to give it to wrestling
Diablo-D3: they made fun of bush and it stuck
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: wtf is catechism?
Duffer1: catholic nonsense
ThickAsThieves: wrestling was always the hot topic whilst learning about jesus
ThickAsThieves: it's sunday school
Diablo-D3: sunday school never made sense to me
ThickAsThieves: gotta do it for 8 years before you can leave the scene
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: then the catholic church is not a church
Diablo-D3: it is a cult and it is against God
ThickAsThieves: well that's just how i saw it
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves did you get a little white tutu and everything ? or do they only do that for girls
ThickAsThieves: yeah have to wear some kind of robe
ThickAsThieves: i remember my confirmation vividly because i said to myself over and over "never forget how happy you are that you never have to come here again"
mircea_popescu: the shit people come up with, i swear.
ThickAsThieves: oddly it was the first time I ever had hot flashes and almost fainted
Duffer1: did you get your little scarf thing too?
mircea_popescu: i mean religion is one thing, as a theological pursuit, you know, whatever, let's sit around and discuss the beard of the teapot in the sky
ThickAsThieves: the next time was in Amsterdam :)
mircea_popescu: but by the time it gets to "you gotta wear this thing" it's gotten real old.
Diablo-D3: ThickAsThieves: that sounds closer to an axienty attack
Diablo-D3: mircea_popescu: well, its actually why I like Jesus
ThickAsThieves: well not much distinction
Diablo-D3: he said, and this is why he killed him, "all this shit they make you do that God didn't expressly say do? stop doing it. God didnt tell you to do that."
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves was it because the nude chicks behind glass ?
ThickAsThieves: either way everything turned white and i almost passed out
Diablo-D3: Jews freaked out and killed him for it

Duffer1: what was the market cap of BTC this time last year? i'm sure it was already well beyond 200k..
mircea_popescu: the funniest shit will be if the us inflation goes bonkers this year, berkshire ends up ~2mn by next march, bitcoins trade ~6k ish
mircea_popescu: just you now... narrowly missing the no condition.

datz_: i am well known

mircea_popescu: i didnt follow the logic of that.
ThickAsThieves: depends on your goal sheldon
ThickAsThieves: obviously there is more to gain, but you can still lose 100%
ThickAsThieves: however, if you feel the large bet is correct, like in this case of this BRK one
ThickAsThieves: you'd want to bet both sides while the weight is in your favor
ThickAsThieves: this assumes the No's won't ruin that weight
ThickAsThieves: on your hedge bet

ThickAsThieves: they see it like a scratcher
ThickAsThieves: sure i think btc will win! but dat odds! i'm willing to throw .001 against that!
Mats_cd03: its context dependent and if you cant handle high school probability you will be ignored by the universe
ThickAsThieves: "Agreed. Looks good. But what I don't get is the huge jump to 41,734.95 in total earned BTC.
ThickAsThieves: Is it caused by the acquisition of bit777 etc. or is this a mistake?"

freeroute: won't multisig tx's make stuff like bitbet more 'safer' to use?
steven-__: safe is always the first word that comes to mind when i think of 3rd party and bitcoin
freeroute: yeah, centralized solutions to a decentralized protocol aren't always a good thing
mircea_popescu: freeroute apparently the people who make the calls in bitcoin don't give a shit about particular dead horse tropes.
mircea_popescu: neckbeards will have to learn to live with it.
freeroute: what particular dead horse tropes are you referring to?
mircea_popescu: "multisig tx make things safer"
freeroute: I guess it depends on the application, it won't make everything safe
mircea_popescu: exactly.
mircea_popescu: if you think about it : sites like bitbet require the power to pay winners.
mircea_popescu: with losers' btc.
mircea_popescu: so what exactly ? if you trust the site to adjudicate, you trust the site to hold the btc. there's nothing meaningful to gain by a separation
mircea_popescu: unless the site itself implements it, which it probably does.
Mats_cd03: bitbet doesnt need smart contracts for what it does
Mats_cd03: is that the killer feature you are seeing in bitbet with multisig tx
freeroute: I guess, not sure about the exact implementation, but it would certainly help bitbet's trust not being able to run away with the BTC
freeroute: but then again, betting would then be limited to only certain bets
Mats_cd03: if you implemented it then heres whats going to happen:
Mats_cd03: people say the same things about bitbet operations, but this time they accuse third_party in the same breath

cazalla: steven-__: he won't attend conferences unless they have a sexual harassment policy in place as well, the guy is a total SJW
mircea_popescu: freeroute you've somehow entirely glossed over what was said.
mircea_popescu: inasmuch as bitbet can resolve bets, it can run off with all btc whether you multisig or not.
steven-__: what a clown
mircea_popescu: the reason bitbet is trusted is for proper reasons, ie, being run by trustworth people.
Mats_cd03: and then you've also created a game theoretic scenario where all involved parties can potentially be robbed
mircea_popescu: not because of improper nonsense, such as "it couldn't gyp us".
mircea_popescu: i understand that there's a very strong desire in the socially-challenged for replacing girlfriends with porn, but that's not how finance works.
mircea_popescu: or copulation, for that matter.

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 26 @ 0.06538076 = 1.6999 BTC [-] {6}
freeroute: well yeah at this point I can't see bitbet implementing such a thing because of the nature of the bets (the bets would then be binary and somehow be validated for provably true)
Mats_cd03: of party (you, her, and third_party), the following set [(third_party,her), (you,her), (you,third_party)] represents who can collude to screw you, third_party, and her
freeroute: but I do hope that trust will get out of people's hands into the hands of cryptography. Because generally, people are not a good thing, and never were.

mircea_popescu: applied mathematics still has to be applied. and i was there when communism fell, and i saw no mathematics anywhere around me.
mircea_popescu: twas just a sea of people.
freeroute: the point is, that right now we have a distributed asset class / currency protected by cryptography. It shifts trust from centralized models to a distributed one. That could be seen as step 1.
freeroute: luckily, the technology which is getting built on top of it, will bring lots of such decentralizations
mircea_popescu: is the wot centralised or distributed in your nomenclature ?
freeroute: colored coins is also an example of this
nubbins`: colored fuckin coins
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you knew that was coming out.
nubbins`: what's unicorn cum an example of?
nubbins`: rainbows?
freeroute: mircea_popescu: difficult. I'd say both, I wouldn't trust it more then I would trust security through obscurity
freeroute: *than
freeroute: not sure about implementation of colored coins, but the concept is amazing
mircea_popescu: well then i'd propose you have no idea what you're talking about, if you use a nomenclature that fails to even split the world properly.
mircea_popescu: were i to decide to split all objects into heavy and light i could fucking tell you whether a breadbox is heavy or light.
freeroute: WOT can be as centralized or as decentralized as you make it, the trust could all lead to a central authority (or central authorities)

ThickAsThieves: interesting
freeroute: no, I didn't say that.
ThickAsThieves: tell me how
ThickAsThieves: what does it do again?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves it protects people from having to bow down to their superiors, which idiots with delusions of independence loathe.
ThickAsThieves: does it?
mircea_popescu: ultimate autists' fantasy this, "trustless systems".
ThickAsThieves: humanless systems
mircea_popescu: exactly.
freeroute: ThickAsThieves: it makes stock issuance and distribution extremely resilient

mircea_popescu: jesus god.
freeroute: true, I didn't claim otherwise
ThickAsThieves: you claimed resilience
freeroute: but at least that prevents the exchange screwing everyone over
ThickAsThieves: to what?
mircea_popescu: freeroute and yet this is a solved problem in fiat too.
mircea_popescu: nyse never screwed anyone over.
mircea_popescu: how come ?

ThickAsThieves: you can't remove people from the system
freeroute: of course you can't, but you can minimize their impact on it
ThickAsThieves: you realize a good exchange actually plays a role
freeroute: which is?

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 2 @ 0.05439423 = 0.1088 BTC [+]
ThickAsThieves: to the issuers, to regulators, to traders
ThickAsThieves: a decentralized one can't fill all roles
ThickAsThieves: it can only automate
ThickAsThieves: even then, don't most of these decentralized exchanges lean on less than 10 points of trust?
ThickAsThieves: is a decentralized stock exchange not able to be regulated?
freeroute: there isn't a decentralized CC exchange yet AFAIK

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 18 @ 0.06318838 = 1.1374 BTC [-] {2}
freeroute: it would be regulated the same way BTC would, I assume
ThickAsThieves: (I realize this leads to arguments on bitcoin's susceptibility to regulation)
ThickAsThieves: BTC's regulatory future is not finalized yknow
ThickAsThieves: miners could come under it
ThickAsThieves: and likely will eventually
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 5 @ 0.0630001 = 0.315 BTC [-] {2}
freeroute: hmm, I always thought that regulation in regards to BTC could only be applied at the "IRL" fiat-side of things
freeroute: so assume miners fall under the regulation, who's to say they won't employ techniques to evade that regulation?
ThickAsThieves: the USG for example cares most about two things
ThickAsThieves: money laundering
ThickAsThieves: and consumer protection
ThickAsThieves: in regards to btc at least
Mats_cd03: i fucking hate that phrase, 'money laundering'
Mats_cd03: i move to have it permanently banned from use
freeroute: ThickAsThieves: well, it's nice that they care.
ThickAsThieves: regulating that no miner may have more than XX% of the network power is not an absurd notion

freeroute: regulating that is also nice. But how would that be applied?
ThickAsThieves: not applied, enforced
nubbins`: it wouldn't
Mats_cd03: you could not enforce that
Mats_cd03: without a centralization authority which the protocol lacks for this purpose
ThickAsThieves: someone is caught doing it, for example
nubbins`: trivial to circumvent
ThickAsThieves: they are hauled in
ThickAsThieves: well many laws are trivial to circumvent
ThickAsThieves: doesnt stop them from existing
nubbins`: too true
nubbins`: "no miner may mine more than XX TH/s from the same IP"
freeroute: enforced was the word I was looking for indeed
ThickAsThieves: maybe ASICMINER grunt whistleblows in 2017
ThickAsThieves: doesnt have to be easy to catch someone
ThickAsThieves: it would just be such that someone breaking a law, would now know so
ThickAsThieves: of course people here would disagree this is even possible
ThickAsThieves: regulating bitcoin
Mats_cd03: i suppose a combined legal and technical approach would be a best-effort case for enforcement
ThickAsThieves: i'm on the fence
ThickAsThieves: i think it can be for the most part
freeroute: even so, they parties who disagree can easily operate in area's which do not have those regulations
freeroute: *the parties
ThickAsThieves: well same for all laws right?
Mats_cd03: i would not bet any of my wealth on a best-effort approach
ThickAsThieves: you wanna sell pot, move to Amesterdam
ThickAsThieves: Amsterdam*
ThickAsThieves: people keep jumping to these yeah but it's international arguments
freeroute: not really a great example since selling pot commercially is still heavily regulated and still not legal, but I do see where you're getting at
ThickAsThieves: it doesnt matter
ThickAsThieves: all the world is international, yet every country has different laws
ThickAsThieves: yet people live in every country
ThickAsThieves: the world turns
freeroute: what Bitcoin (for the most part) enables, is full "in the cloud" operation wherever you geographically might be positioned. As long as you're connected, you can do most of the stuff with BTC.
ThickAsThieves: so why the effort to remove trust from the equation?
ThickAsThieves: you can't
Mats_cd03: youve blown my mind, i never realized that about bitcoin /s
ThickAsThieves: hell, 99.9% of the people never even vetted the code
ThickAsThieves: for all we know it's majorly flawed and the people that know choose to just bank off it
ThickAsThieves: how's that for trust?
ThickAsThieves: are you gonna go through the CC code?
freeroute: putting trust from the hands of people into mathematics is a way of making sure that you can't be screwed by people, which has happened numerous times already.
ThickAsThieves: do you know how decentralized it really is?
ThickAsThieves: same for Mastercoin etc
freeroute: well you can't abolish trust entirely, that would be unreal
ThickAsThieves: what if manages 80% of the CC ledger?
ThickAsThieves: what if they wait 9mos til everyone gets comfortable and fuck everyone over?
freeroute: CC doesn't have a ledger AFAIK, it uses BTC ledger
ThickAsThieves: something manages the metadata no?
freeroute: the metadata is inside of the BTC tx'es, right?
ThickAsThieves: what parses it?
ThickAsThieves: what maintains updated listings?
freeroute: the client, same way the BTC client parses the blockchain
freeroute: (I assume)
ThickAsThieves: i may be mixing OT and MasterCoin in here
freeroute: MC is similar to CC but OT is a communication system which can be used on top of MC / CC AFAIK
ThickAsThieves: as i understood decentralized systems, they utilize new ledgers, maintained by servers
freeroute: ah that sounds like OT's system
ThickAsThieves: in the end though youre still quite a slave to the issuer
ThickAsThieves: an exchange has an incentive to vet it's issuers
freeroute: well no one stops a service vetting issuers
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 2 @ 0.05396624 = 0.1079 BTC [+] {2}
ThickAsThieves: well you want to rmeove the exchange right?
ThickAsThieves: compare mpex and cryptostocks
ThickAsThieves: this is how it unfolds
ThickAsThieves: why wouldnt a reputable issuer use a reputable exchange?
freeroute: nothing, but then the issuer would then be at the mercy of the exchange
ThickAsThieves: the CC system will be riddled with scams and issuers no one else would have
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 309 @ 0.00088607 = 0.2738 BTC [-]
freeroute: true
freeroute: just like Bitcoin was/is

freeroute: ThickAsThieves: that there is no middleman in between that can screw things up
mircea_popescu: <freeroute> there isn't a decentralized CC exchange yet AFAIK << there has been, for years. ot, open transactions.
ThickAsThieves: bitcoin makes no claims
ThickAsThieves: had no obligations

Duffer1: would you buy romania?
khersonus: Duffer1: maybe that's true. But maybe this big bet on berkshire is also a conflict of interests? he owns most of bitbet anyway, I thought
mircea_popescu: khersonus so what is the ownership of bitbet going to do, change the brk-a market ?
Duffer1: that's different though, the terms are clear to everyone and unalterable
ThickAsThieves: well technically the terms are alterable
benderp: oh teh ironies
ThickAsThieves: if they want to lose trust
Duffer1: i suppose so, you are right
khersonus: a proper index could publish all of its calculations. It could even be a collection of scripts that everyone could run to verify the data on their own. mircea could just publish the verified results.
benderp: asciilifeform: wtf? forgive my naive but what are the actual odds of that happening?!

Hirethestache: I do, more or less. I have my cold storage, but I use my small amount on CB for small transactions.
Duffer1: depends if he downloads the private keys or not
benkay: you might consider developing a workflow that includes owning your own bitcoins.
benkay: it's onerous, but most worthwhile things are.
Hirethestache: I'm mobile, and there are not any iOS apps for BTC wallets that I know about. I have my android with a small wallet, but it's not on me ATM.
benkay: do you not have a computer?
Hirethestache: I'm traveling, so no unfortunately not.
benkay: tough.
Hirethestache: Just my iPhone and nexus tablet, but I won't have access to the nexus for 48hours
benkay: you know the Nexus is trivially broken wide open and all storage read out, right?
benkay: (true of all phone-type-combudder things)
Hirethestache: Do you have any documentation on that? I need to look into that, definitely
benkay: no documentation necessary. it's not your hardware. it doesn't obey your commands. don't put your coins on it.
bitcoinpete: Partially inspired by freeroute:
benkay: spend 200 bucks on a linux netbook.
ozbot: IRC Yeshiva | When Bitcoin Met Pete
Hirethestache: Oh yeah, I don't have any coins directly on it. I have a small Coinbase account, a small amount on my nexus wallet, and everything else on a paper wallet in a safe
mircea_popescu: im with benkay. phones make poor wallets.
bitcoinpete: Also partially inspired by Rabbi bin Popescu's "a bug in the implementation of physicality" line.
mircea_popescu: having a few cents in there for convenience is fine, but don't go overboard
benkay: convenience? this is bitcoin!!!11
benkay: plan ahead, etc.
Hirethestache: I agree. I have about 3 on CB and two on my nexus
mircea_popescu: benkay as an experiment i put a privkey in a window at some point in 2012.
mircea_popescu: it was unspent after a week
Hirethestache: Another 12 on cold
benkay: you keep 2/21M of the monetary base on your phone?!
benkay: mircea_popescu: still unspent?

test123: hello
mircea_popescu: benkay well that was a while ago.
Hirethestache: It's on the nexus which is wifi only, and I only go online when I need to use it for BTC. Two step aught still
mircea_popescu: hi test123
benkay: mircea_popescu: ...
benkay: mircea_popescu: i guess 2012's a while ago in buttyears
mircea_popescu: i eventually took it out, what.
test123: this is bitbet's forum?
benkay: test123: lotsa stuff happens here. some bitbet stuff as well.
ozbot: BitBet - Bitcoin to surpass Berkshire as an investment
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete some history books are filled with pompoms
mircea_popescu: like "An Illustrated History of Pompoms, and the BonBons that Whore Them"
Hirethestache: But back to my original question, is there an easy way to send to bitbet from Coinbase? I wanna get in on this bet ASAP, but I only have my iPhone, ergo only have access to the Coinbase wallet
mircea_popescu: Hirethestache you can send from anywhere. just make sure you control the outbound address you specify.
mircea_popescu: that's why that's there.
bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu lmao I'll have to look for those next time I'm at the public library
test123: for that berkshire bet, why are people betting now- why not wait until just before betting closes, when bets aren't locked in?
mircea_popescu: because of the weight.
Hirethestache: Might have to email myself from my Coinbase and take the address out of the ema. That's the only workaround I can think of
mircea_popescu: Hirethestache if you say you have a cold wallet, you can just use that as a bitbet outbound address
benkay: Hirethestache: there are also brainwallets you could use
mircea_popescu: if you win it'll just be added to your cold wallet.
benkay: ^^ or that
mircea_popescu: compare 26-11-13 11:10Yes94`37011.0000000013kEx13.96254379 with 17-01-14 13:22Yes14`48210.0000000014NeT10.32864719
Hirethestache: Mircea, I don't have the cold storage addresses stored digitally anywhere
mircea_popescu: well that's maybe not so smart.
mircea_popescu: don't you ever want to check it ?
Hirethestache: Haven't had to, only had it for about two weeks
benkay: you may consider a dicelist and a deterministic wallet, Hirethestache.
benkay: ;;google dicelist
gribble: Diceware Passphrase Home: <>; Romanian Dicelist pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.: <>; Diceware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: <>
mircea_popescu: ah, the two weeks, bitcoin's only true measure of time.
mircea_popescu: holy shit i rank for dicelist ?!
benkay: apparently.
mircea_popescu: such seo.
Hirethestache: My bitcoin lingo is now officially dead in the water. I really need to do more research. You think you know so much until you realize you don't.
benkay: honestly it's probably tuning itself for grbble queries, mircea_popescu.
mircea_popescu: it must be.
mircea_popescu: but wait
mircea_popescu: no, it can't. cause it doesn't know what gribble clicks.
benkay: oh come on they can kinda infer that, right?
mircea_popescu: this is the perfect anon model, gribble googling. how would google ever figure it out ?
benkay: hm
benkay: perhaps clustering against gribble searches then, which weights trilema?
benkay: mad trilema-y searches from gribble.
mircea_popescu: i dunno man.

benkay: ah, what's the rush.
Hirethestache: Bet ends in 7 haha
benkay: f'real?

mircea_popescu: test123 indeed.
bitcoinpete: Duffer1: beauty
mircea_popescu: it's all explained in the faw.
bitcoinpete: I'll bbl
Hirethestache: ^^hence the reason I'm so adamant about betting ASAP hah
Duffer1: ^.^
benkay: Hirethestache: 2015?
mircea_popescu: Hirethestache wait, you think the berkshire bet ends in a week or is this some other bet you're talking asbout
Hirethestache: It's not the warren buffet bet
benkay: hey jsbrekla text is not highlightable on bitbet homepage
mircea_popescu: anyway, if you're travelling with no safe addresses and no way to make them you're sol.
Hirethestache: Although I do plan on betting on BRK
mircea_popescu: so for all the kids keeping score at home : always carry some safe addresses when travelling.
mircea_popescu: even if you can't spend out of them
benkay: one never knows when bitcoins are going to shower from the heavens
benkay: Hirethestache: if your bet closes in 7 days just use the CB address. they won't likely go out of business with so little fanfare.
mircea_popescu: it'll just get comingled won't it ?
Hirethestache: Yeah, you guys are schooling me on my knowledge, or lack thereof, of proper BTC safety
benkay: welcome to -assets.
benkay: mircea_popescu Hirethestache doesn't CB allocate users a specific receipt address?
mircea_popescu: i have no idea i never used the thing
benkay: mircea_popescu Hirethestache i'm suggesting using the user-specific inbound address.
Duffer1: they don't make it obvious, but i believe they do, let me check
Hirethestache: I need to go back to BTC school
benkay: this is BTC school Hirethestache
mircea_popescu: what;s a stache anyway
benkay: Hirethestache
benkay: moustache
mircea_popescu: too obvious
mircea_popescu: "Being quiet and studious is broadly unknown in a western culture that prizes “views”, “likes” and the inane extraversion required to generate them." no see, that's attacking people's self esteem.
Duffer1: Hirethestache it appears coinbase keeps track of all addresses generated by your transactions (they appear to use a new address for every deposit/withdrawl) you can view them under Account Settings - Bitcoin Addresses
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 14800 @ 0.00088958 = 13.1658 BTC [+]
Duffer1: hirethestache money sent to any of those addresses in that list will probably be credited to your CB account, but i'm not 100% on that, by trying to dumb it down for the average person they make it way more complicated...
mircea_popescu: i wonder if this is practical for them.
mircea_popescu: if they have 1k customers that make 1k transactions each that's 1mn addresses they have to keep track of
mircea_popescu: doesn't seem toscale too well.
benkay: it's a rails stack, who said anything about scaling?
mircea_popescu: lord have mercy.
benkay: none.
benkay: they're in a tough spot. they're guaranteeing cold storage for customer funds, but also that they can send funds on demand. this requires they commingle, which is anathema.
mircea_popescu: i don't see that it's such anathema.
mircea_popescu: put eggs in basked, watch basket.
benkay: maybe allowing ones funds to be so commingled is anathema.
benkay: maybe trusting others with ones coins.
benkay: specifically, silly-con valley bank.
benkay: that is *definitely* anathema.
mircea_popescu: ya well, i don't personally trust them so i have no use for them on these lines, but in principle what can you do.
benkay: ruby on rails = bitcoin marble pillars
mircea_popescu: seems there's a progression at work, php -> ruby ->
mircea_popescu: sorta like the people involved, 22 -> 25 ->
benkay: oh man php
benkay: subject of php
benkay: client has app and backend they brought my firm on to shephard into app store and reverse-engineer an SDK out of.
benkay: backend in php 'cause what else
benkay: when it comes time to compare hashes, guess what happens.
mircea_popescu: hahaha php-collision ?
Duffer1: magic?
mircea_popescu: benkay easy way to solve problem : hash precompare.
mircea_popescu: if (md5(a) = md5(b))
benkay: man
mircea_popescu: i tell you :D
hirethestache: got my hands on my nexus.
benkay: i don't even php, so i don't know how hard you're trolling right now
benkay: wouldn't be surprised if that call was something along the lines of "are these both thingers in memory? great! return true."
mircea_popescu: i don't know how hard im trolling either, tbh, but i figure it should be somewhere between my penis and a brick wall.
benkay: anyways, love these guys. smart fuckers. tough sell on the job is going to be lisp and not haskell for the backend.
benkay: although maybe we'll all learn some haskell and learn something about strongly typed systems.
benkay: mircea_popescu re: hardness
diametric: mircea_popescu: quite the commotion you you started with that bet
mircea_popescu: turns out im good at that.
diametric: i like it, all the anti-mp people were out in full force on reddit
diametric: "the guy that runs bitbet made the bet and he's a scammer!" many lols were had.
mircea_popescu: yeah well, there's people out there claiming that obama is smart and putin good looking
mircea_popescu: why shouldn't i have people that claim im a scammer
diametric: haha
steven-__: reddit has been in quality free fall for 4-5 years same goes for hn
mircea_popescu: i find it hard to believe reddit ever had any qyality to begin with
diametric: honestly its just a degradation of the signal to noise ratio that happens in any online community that gains popularity with the masses.
mircea_popescu: back when digg still existed reddit was where the furies gathered
mircea_popescu: then conde nast bought it and it became sorta-popular with the majored-in-business crowd i guess
diametric: mircea_popescu: when is your bitcoin conference?
mircea_popescu: later april

benkay: ah.

mircea_popescu: diametric what's harm to do with anything ? i'd rather take a smoker than someone who watches tv.
mircea_popescu: others are to be judged on aesthetic criteria
diametric: to what end though, i don't really care if people dress up like animals and fuck each other if they want too. I think its weird, but I would not consider myself a better person than they on that alone.
mircea_popescu: but i mean how do you judge another ?
mircea_popescu: what they consider beautiful would seem a major consideration
asciilifeform: i sorta wonder if the animal costumes are an anonymity thing
diametric: a consideration for what? I mean, sure its something I might factor in if its relevant to the situation, but I wouldn't dismiss someone simple because of that.
mircea_popescu: really ?
diametric: I do dismiss people that inflict harm on others, despite whatever else they might have to offer
mircea_popescu: i can't see how i could take seriously someone with poor taste.
mircea_popescu: so they inflict harm, what of it.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it may even be a chicken and egg thing. maybe the pedestrian anonimity thing comes from the suits.
asciilifeform: just the theory, there might be folks who haven't the courage, but different matter when in the wolf suit.
mircea_popescu: diametric i mean what, you can't be friends with a war veteran ?
diametric: its a fetish. some people like feet, some people like anal gaping, some people like making scrambled eggs compromised of equal parts chicken eggs and semen. those guys like dressing up like animals and fucking. I think anonymity is incidental
asciilifeform: (i personally don't know anyone who does this particular thing, so i can only guess)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah it's a lot more diffuse than that. i suspect many of them actually worked in a job that required them to dress as an animal. they do that for parties/disne\yland etc.
mircea_popescu: for whatever reason the thing stuck, because most of these kids are unemployable save for some fantasy enacting
asciilifeform: never knew a pro clown either, perhaps to my detriment
mircea_popescu: ("i'm not really a waitress, i'm just on my way to the newsweek stint")
diametric: mircea_popescu: I see your point, maybe not harm at its basic level. Intent has a lot to do with it.
mircea_popescu: the costumes make the fantasy easier.
mircea_popescu: diametric is this something you've considered systematically or not really ?
diametric: nah its not something i spend a lot of time thinking about.
mircea_popescu: it shows.
diametric: oh i'm sure.
mircea_popescu: fwiw i dun think most furries actually do any fucking
Mats_cd03: diametric then you will always be vulnerable to those willing to xommit violence
mircea_popescu: in or out of costume.
diametric: i spread myself too thin honestly, i have a wide range of interests but never enough time to fully explore them.
mircea_popescu: i wasn't intimating you're a bad person or anything.
diametric: I didn't take it as such
mircea_popescu: i wonder if the d ever gives out furry prons
