mircea_popescu: so i see you've dropped that notion that advertisers should follow the publishers and evaluate them one by one
mircea_popescu: which is a move towards sanity.
arsenische: yes, there should be some other way to do it

mircea_popescu: no, because advertisers can't possibly be arsed to do that.

mircea_popescu: arsenische okay, i have a proposition for you. it goes like this :
arsenische: (that was a quote from https://a-ads.com/terms_of_service)
mircea_popescu: 1. you get in the wot, we go partners in yoru anon ads service, work it pretty much on the bitbet model. it can be listed on mpex.
mircea_popescu: 2. we kick out all the current publishers. we require all publishers to come here and have their platform approved to be added to a-a.
mircea_popescu: we'll be insanely picky, in that, only actual blogs carrying actual interesting material written by interestin people will be accepted. jurov's thing may not make the cut even.
punkman: mircea_popescu: there is indeed fagrap, for instance http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soce,_the_elemental_wizard

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo up to arsenische atm.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Interesting.
mircea_popescu: BigBitz what i don't get is, why the fuck would local bitcoins hold any bitcoins. just run it like craigslist, what do you want to hold on to the risk for.
BigBitz: enforced escrow.
BigBitz: makes sense; if you can secure your shit.
mircea_popescu: fuck that. it's nonsense. you can't enforce escrow.
BigBitz: adds some validitity to the trade.
BigBitz: mircea_popescu enforced in the sense it must be filled before it can be traded.
BigBitz: proof, at least, there is bitcoin available.
mircea_popescu: yes ok. but that can be done many other (better) ways
mircea_popescu: and isn't actually escrow
BigBitz: Yup.
BigBitz: I'm aware :)
mircea_popescu: so you know, they just eat a pie of risk for no upside.
mircea_popescu: but then again... hey. business isn't a skill we're born with.
BigBitz: speak to jereamis I think he's seen enough upside ;)
BigBitz: business acumen isn't rife in Bitcoin land.
mircea_popescu: as they say, the best way to sink a good team with a good idea is a bad revenue stream.
mircea_popescu: BigBitz in fact, local bitcoins could just verify a btc address signature, for the same effects, not having to hold any btc in the process.
cazalla: mircea_popescu: going back to KLYE discussion earlier - do you think there is a market for insex type content + bitcoin?
BigBitz: sure but that's as worthwhile as saying "here it is" then moving it instantly.

mircea_popescu: BigBitz also, kinda trivial to verify address has been meanwhile emptied, doesn't show so good on the proposed seller.

BigBitz: lol
BigBitz: The world is still full of stupid people who don't know Bitcoin from sand.
mircea_popescu: so you're saying that the notion that someone googling bitcoin would actually fall for the most tired webscams is not exactly without basis ?
BigBitz: education isn't exactly non-existant but "MAKE DEM QUICK BUCKS"

Naphex: <+mircea_popescu> Naphex so they're going to pay anoither 50 bn or w/e obamacare.com cost, to have someone make them a https site ?
Naphex: probably
Naphex: thats how they do all gov eauctions everywhere
Naphex: with x509 and https
Naphex: and ofcourse all platforms are shitty, expensive, horrible
BingoBoingo: Don't forget the key escrow
mircea_popescu: Naphex what i mean is, technically speaking any https site satisfies the "it uses x509" criterion. and so, a contractor could in principle slap a lamp on a box, draw up 3 pages and there you go, invoice for 50 billion.
mircea_popescu: not that this isn't how it'll end up working
Naphex: well it will have specs attached
Naphex: but it will most likely use x509 certificates, and "ssl authentication"
Naphex: you gotta have that certificate imported and loaded to log in
Naphex: so thats what your gov id will be
Naphex: and most likely use adobe with x509 to sign/encrypt send pdf documents
Naphex: :))
Naphex: https://www.e-licitatie.ro/Public/Common/Content.aspx?f=PublicHomePage is a famous case i think ;]
Naphex: i think that 'portal' - thats what they call shitty webapps that cost hundreds of milions

danielpbarron: is it safe to assume that a user operating a pass-through for MPEx has a lot to lose if he were to decide to run with the money? To clarify, is it MPEx's official policy to publically shame and/or revoke access for such a user?
benkay: identity operating the mpex keys will be toast for sure.
mircea_popescu: in general you'd expect the rotten pt operator to withdraw everything from mpex before he actually runs.
danielpbarron: mircea_popescu: but would his access be void? (value of 30 BTC)
benkay: but mircea_popescu wouldja revoke the keys?
mircea_popescu: yes.
kakobrekla: if you know who it is
danielpbarron: nice :D
mircea_popescu: well you gotta know who he is.
mircea_popescu: how could you not
benkay: you gotta know the keyid he's using, non?
benkay: kinda the point of mpex - put down 30B, get access no questions asked.
danielpbarron: I don't need to know, but i'm confident MPEx could figure that one out
kakobrekla: but mpex cant
mircea_popescu: you shouldn't be confident mpex will figure anything.
mircea_popescu: but if you ever asked your pt op for a mpex signed stat, for instance, you should know
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1160 @ 0.00084176 = 0.9764 BTC [-]
benkay: pt ops should be considered bad actors if they refuse to provide those, then. no amount of 'gotta preserve the secrecy of my keys with mpex' allowed.
danielpbarron: i agree
mircea_popescu: well it's entirely up to you.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3140 @ 0.00084118 = 2.6413 BTC [-]
kakobrekla: yeah but you can go to buttfucker and post a passthrough as evedence present a malfucked pgp signature which none of the 'investors' know how to check anyway and thats that
chetty: no way around the basics, due diligence and trust
mircea_popescu: well nobody forces anyone to not know / not think / etc
danielpbarron: for example: a user is in the WoT, and has a rating of 3 or more given by mircea_popescu, describing him as an operator of a specific pass-through; is it safe to trust this user on that information alone?
mircea_popescu: no.
fluffypony: not enough information given
mircea_popescu: it's never safe to trust.
danielpbarron: doesn't this necessarily mean that MPEx knows the user's credentials, and could disable them if it turned out to be a scam?
mircea_popescu: no, it does not.
mircea_popescu: you can find out what it means by asking the rater what they meant.
mircea_popescu: you're not at liberty to arbitrarily decide what someone else's rating means.
danielpbarron: ok, mircea_popescu what did you mean when you rated jurov?
fluffypony: danielpbarron: I think part of the WoT is extrapolation of information upon which a conclusion can be drawn, and sometimes that information needs to be expanded by talking to the rater

gribble: You rated user jurov on Mon Apr 21 06:09:46 2014, with a rating of 5, and supplied these additional notes: Years of promises kept..
danielpbarron: chetty: 99.99%, ya
mircea_popescu: i'm pretty sure (5/10) that i know enough of the guy to have an opinion, and that opinion is he should be trustworthy.
chetty: danielpbarron, that I think is the point - trust has degrees, you should be aware of them
mircea_popescu: dun tell me jurov ran off ?!
danielpbarron: lol probably not; just doing some due dilligence
bounce: what, like kevin bacon or something? *confused*
benkay: i mean i been trying to get ahold of him all weekend, but that was after he said he was going to be unavailable all weekend
mircea_popescu: lol
danielpbarron: that's a good thing, right?
mircea_popescu: danielpbarron sure.

bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu: wait, are you saying that reusing is good for privacy?
bitcoingirl: popescu - can I humbly ask you for a favor
mircea_popescu: shoot
mircea_popescu: bitcoingirl yes.
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete yes i mean.
pankkake: bitcoinpete: seems to me the real issue is merging inputs, regardless of the addresses. changing addresses will only confuse amateur investigators
fluffypony: ^^
jurov: how ambiguous? when i withdraw from mpex, it spends Tx1, Tx2..Txn from one mpex address.. how it is different from spending them from different adresses?
bitcoingirl: https://blog.blockchain.com/2014/04/16/the-first-annual-blockchain-awards/ can you help me get votes for the "most insightful journalist"
ozbot: The First Annual Blockchain Awards | Blockchain Blog
bitcoingirl: this would be helpful for my career. was one of the first reporters in this industry
mircea_popescu: so i should what, pester cary ?
fluffypony: bitcoinpete: not knowing which addresses were used to receive BTC is irrelevant when you are looking at it going out
mircea_popescu: !up GAit
assbot: Voicing GAit for 30 minutes.
GAit: thanks mircea_popescu
pankkake: anyway, perhaps use a good client which supports multiple wallets if you want easy privacy
mircea_popescu: aha, well you heard the lady folks : pls to vote ms boring for the blockchain award.
fluffypony: yeah, agree with pankkake, separation of liabilities
GAit: bitcoinpete: hello
bitcoinpete: GAit: howdy
fluffypony: bitcoingirl: who must we vote for? I missed the bits further up
GAit: bitcoinpete: can i disturb you on a PM ?
bitcoinpete: GAit: green address, i presum?
GAit: bitcoinpete: yes
mircea_popescu: o is it ?
bitcoingirl: +fluffypony Perianne Boring, please
bitcoinpete: GAit: let's talk here
GAit: ok
fluffypony: bitcoingirl: ok done, I nominated you for best ATM design.
GAit: i wasn't sure this was appropriate for the channel, as long as others don't mind
fluffypony: (kidding)
bitcoinpete: GAit: this is a good conversation for everyone to see
mircea_popescu: fluffypony asshat :D
GAit: it is I agree, i generally like to read your blog
mircea_popescu: GAit go ahead, you're voiced, you can talk.
bitcoinpete: GAit: so tell us why reusing addresses is bad, in your opinion
bitcoingirl: I did not create an ATM
mircea_popescu: bitcoingirl he's just being difficult :D
bitcoingirl: i know
GAit: i think reusing addresses is bad for privacy and exposes you to potential security risk in the implementation
fluffypony: bitcoingirl: I'm teasing, hence the "kidding" added after
mircea_popescu: GAit specifically.
fluffypony: bitcoingirl: here - http://i.imgur.com/nizKc8A.png
GAit: specifically privacy or security?
mircea_popescu: privacy. the security i understand
GAit: privacy alone is quite important but extra security is not bad
mircea_popescu: and it's factual : ecdsa is vulnerable to bad rngs.
GAit: well privacy in the sense that if you tell too many people about your [reused] address then it is much easier to make sense, on a whole, of correlated transaction, especially if more people reuse
mircea_popescu: GAit what if you lie.
GAit: who lies?
mircea_popescu: well for instance, Naphex told me a funny story when we met yest. it went like this :
mircea_popescu: buncha poor romanian kids in some small romanian town got the check-only btc address app installed on their phones and went all over town claiming to be owning 1000s of btc.
pankkake: oh, your name is actually Boring. things are clearer now
GAit: check only-> watch only I presume?
mircea_popescu: yes
GAit: anyway, bitcoinpete, why would you go as far as calling it scam? good reasons or?
bitcoinpete: GAit scum != scam
GAit: sorry, lapsus
GAit: so why calling it scum?
GAit: i actually like in general your criticism and your being skeptical
mircea_popescu: what got called scum ? i'm behind my reading.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete called GAit scum on the Twitorz
GAit: https://twitter.com/bitcoinpete/status/463072062056452096
ozbot: Twitter / bitcoinpete: You guys are fucking scum. ...
bitcoinpete: GAit: basically that reusing doesn't have a place in bitcoin
mircea_popescu: oh. GAit well people sometimes overstate points on the internet. it's called cracked.com
fluffypony: technically he said you're fucking scum, GAit, if scum is a pretty person you could consider that a complement
GAit: mircea_popescu: i was trying to find if there was something bad we could improvwe
mircea_popescu: GAit the problem is this : i'm pretty well convinced, and i suspect a lot of people here are similarly convinced,
bounce: complement or compliment?
GAit: bounce: compliment
mircea_popescu: that a campaign against reusing addresses is more a covert usg op than anything else.
fluffypony: bounce: good catch
fluffypony: I need another drink
mircea_popescu: now whether you're participating naively or not is up for grabs, but still.
GAit: mircea_popescu: you are saying we tried to get attention in the wrong way by mentioning our comptetitors reusing addresses?
mircea_popescu: no.
peterl: does reusing addresses cut down on blockchain bloat?
mircea_popescu: i am saying that the entire "don't reuse addresses" campaign is exactly the equiovalent of "pls to use openssh" or "pls to use tor before that"
mircea_popescu: or "pls to use whatever the gpg competitor was, i forgot" 20 years prior.
bitcoinpete: peterl: shouldn't
GAit: reusing increases bloat if i understand correctly as you have less to prune
mircea_popescu: reusing prevents efficient pruning.
GAit: yeah
GAit: a good point to add to the blog actually
GAit: thanks
fluffypony: peterl: not really...the current change address functionality is roughly analogous to creating fresh receive addresses every time you receive a transaction
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform chetty what was the gpg competitor nsa was pushing back i nthe day ?
bounce: clipper?
fluffypony: bounce: wasn't that the Microsoft Office assistant?
bounce: "clippy", unless you're thinking of bob the dog
peterl: you mean the paperclip that gave tips on how to use winblows?

bitcoinpete: GAit: there's a place for address reuse and there's a place for new address generation
bounce tried to make a funny with "swordfish" in it, but failed
GAit: bitcoinpete: i don't really know anyonw in bitcoin-dev that is pro address reuse
mircea_popescu: so ?
GAit: it is not reccomanded
mircea_popescu: are you here looking for feedback or are you here to persuade ?
bitcoinpete: GAit: and quantum computing isn't a thing. it's cold fusion until proven otherwise
bounce: anybody still use coldfusion? even though it's apparently a better php.
GAit: quantum computer is theoretical and little practical so far, sure, i didn't say much more to that
mircea_popescu: bounce seems dead.
mircea_popescu: GAit do you understand the part where making statements about defenses against nonspecified attacks is hacky at best ?
fluffypony: lol
mircea_popescu: i mean that sort of shit probably flies in -otc, but this chan is grown ups.
fluffypony: bounce: wasn't there a major CF exploit last yearish that caused issues on a bunch of sites?
GAit: non specified attacks?
mircea_popescu: yes.
GAit: i specified the attaccks or problems. RNG is one
GAit: privacy is another
mircea_popescu: if quantum computing, then your teeth are probably not safe. because why would they be ?
peterl: my dad (a physicist) worked on quantum computing for a bit. It's more likely to succeed than cold fusion, but still many years off.
GAit: well by then i imagine a lot of encryption will use quanto techinques
bitcoinpete: GAit: i didn't say much more to that <<quantum comps was half your security argument in the blog
fluffypony: GAit: it's like me saying not to use GreenAddress because of the risk of an exploit in Chrome/Java/JavaScript; until it happens or the attack surface is real it's pointless talking about it
bounce: quantum computing vs cold fusion, there's a bitbet
GAit: it is a widely discussed topics when talking about bitcoin and ecdsa
mircea_popescu: bounce one year term!
bounce: oh foo
peterl: oh, and people use cold fusion all the time, it just generates neutrons, not power
bounce: NO VISION
GAit: fluffypony: sure you can say that, but then you have little alternative to all common languages, maybe some hardware wallet
mircea_popescu: o.o
mircea_popescu: security by lack of alternative ?!
fluffypony: GAit: welcome to the world of S.NSA :-P
kakobrekla: afaik 'green address' as technical term implies reusing an address, which is funny.
mircea_popescu: which is also entirely an artefact of your own mind, as yo ucan make a webpage in fucking lisp ?
bounce: just add neutron-fueled fission, and you have a safe(-ish) reactor
GAit: we are already working on supporting two hw wallets
GAit: we are using a different way of 'greenaddressing' out of band, if you want greenaddress 2.0
GAit: we spoke to Jan, you know, the guy that coined the term
mircea_popescu: moving on to more interesting stuff. fluffypony you got a dc in your basement ?
GAit: he really liked the way it is applied in a out of the box way
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: no, got a warehouse with decent availability and average Internet tho
GAit: did you see the design document/white apper?
mircea_popescu: you moving anytime soon ?
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: not a chance
mircea_popescu: how would you feel about hosting a coupla rigs ?
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: sure, happy to talk about it
fluffypony: GAit: when are you guys going to support RFC 1149?
fluffypony: I think it's an important piece of functionality missing from almost all implementations
mircea_popescu: too fucking evil.
peterl: bounce: so you control the rate of fission by the amount of power you put into the neutron-generating fusion?

bounce: s/ceh/ce/
ThickAsThieves: but seriously mp, and everyone here, i have an open call out for questions and topics anyone would like me to attempt getting info on at Bitcoin2014
benkay: pornstar/businesscunt would make sense
lolstate: TAT, that’s an interesting staement: a) Danny is a crim or… b)… ?
benkay: but pornstar/cryptostocks is derpage of the most pernicious variety.
ThickAsThieves: basically the limit is that they have to be "serious" questions and i cant end up in jail
bounce: you already got a list? (wiki? in public? maybe not a good idea)
lolstate: lol
nahkunt: mircea_popescu: isn't that correct? i read about you on the bitcoinwiki, it linked to a bitcointalk thread discussing it.
ThickAsThieves: getting banned from the conf is not off limits, but save it for last plaz
ThickAsThieves: plz
ThickAsThieves: bounce no one has made any requests yet
benkay: nahkunt: relies on bitcointalk for research
ThickAsThieves: i intended to start my own list in the next couple days
assbot: [MPEX] [S.BBET] 250 @ 0.00053 = 0.1325 BTC [-]
bounce: really should trawl their forum for things to grill them about
nahkunt: benkay: yes, businesscunt, i'da said that but i'm not sure how many aussies are present in this channel
ThickAsThieves: lolstate, i do not know if danny is a criminal, it's entirely possible he is merely 'criminally' inept
lolstate: TAT, have you had any contact with Danny after cutting the pass-through management role?
bounce already has a bit too much to read ATM :/
ThickAsThieves: lolstate no, he only talks to reddit now it seems
lolstate: Well, he doesn’t answer mobile, Skype or email
ThickAsThieves: i know
lolstate: Doe a runner, it seems..
lolstate: *Done*
benkay: lolstate: satisfied yet?
nahkunt: benkay: not relying on bitcointalk, i asked for confirmation from the primary source and you're criticisng my romanian pornstar turned crypt obusinesscunt research methodology?
lolstate: About what, exactly? Aren’t you in bed?
ThickAsThieves: lolstate just wants fuel to bring back to the perpetually cold fire at bitcointalk.org
lolstate: lol
benkay: nahkunt: it's no secret mp ran porn operations.
lolstate: I don’t think so, TAT.
benkay: pornstar though is your claim and you're going to have to substantiate that.
benkay: 'star' lol.
ThickAsThieves: porn cerberus
lolstate: So, TAT, I’m not here to add fuel or whatever. I’m actaully interested in disecting this mess.
nahkunt: benkay: it's probably false then, but this wiki page https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/MPEx links to a thread that mentions it
benkay: there's nothing to dissect, lolstate. it's over. everyone involved lost their money.
bounce: totally believable
lolstate: FFS
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves so im thinking the best approach here is, go, liveblog it, we take it from there.
mircea_popescu: sorta like a qual lap./
ThickAsThieves: lolstate i have no new info for you, sorry
benkay: nahkunt: let me know if you have anything that's less retarded than a retarded thread on a retarded forum.
ThickAsThieves: mp, okay, but i do feel some prep would be nice
mircea_popescu: ok, ask ?
lolstate: I don’r need neew info, TAT. That’s ok.
lolstate: But the dissection has to happen.
benkay: why, lolstate ?
benkay: what is there to dissect?
lolstate: Police will disect soon enough.
benkay: shit blew up. it's over. on to the next one.
ThickAsThieves: i'll start a doc tomorrow (i'm not entirely sober atm) but basically who are the targets, and what are the main gripes and concerns to be expressed to each
lolstate: No really. If there was fraud, the cops will be interested.
bounce: probably gonna need someone on the headset relaying irc (teamspeak?) during panels
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves as far as im concenred, the "why are you not publishing reports @vehe" is all.
nahkunt: benkay: ok man... i think you're misinterpreting my tone, i wasn't really all that serious about it. i just came to ask people's opinion on https://vertpay.com — they're having an IPO soon
ThickAsThieves: i should probably buy an audio recorder
benkay: lolstate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM1RChZk1EU
mircea_popescu: i have no idea who the rest of the derps present are or why'd i/anyone care.
ThickAsThieves: but mp so many people will be there
ThickAsThieves: like Josh from BFL
mircea_popescu: so many people are @gcs in ny right now
mircea_popescu: so what of it
ThickAsThieves: the Overstock guy
ThickAsThieves: etc
mircea_popescu: the overstock guy is a year away from sense
mircea_popescu: i may be the lord of all evil but i can't compress time.
lolstate: TAT, are you still in securities? Aren’t you jaded now?
benkay: nahkunt: "Merchant adoption is the single biggest driver in encouraging the spread of a cryptocurrency." << sounds like a ploy to hype a shitcoin
mircea_popescu: except with willing women.
ThickAsThieves: lolstate i've been jaded since i was like 8 years old

lolstate: Not trying to wind you up, TAT, just fact-finding!

mircea_popescu: wait wait. fluffypony what exactly is your relation to vertcon or w/e and wtf is it ?
fluffypony: nahkunt: definitely, that's the plan, but it's important for us to have a definitive starting point
nahkunt: yes i agree and i think it's a wise decision to start with just vert
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: I found someone doing something similar to PayBee but Vertcoin-specific, so I struck a deal with them and we've been sorting things out over the past couple of weeks
mircea_popescu: wtf is a vertcoin
ThickAsThieves: i'm not sure if i have a 'current' list lolstate, i may have taken a screen shot of the lmb site before it went away, but otherwise, the 'list' of pending transfers was not saved
benkay: another shitcoin.
mircea_popescu: scrypt ?
lolstate: Ok, TAT, that’s reasonable.
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: an altcoin, selling point is that it uses scrypt-n so it's asic-resistant
mircea_popescu: ah.
mircea_popescu: oh oh that thing
mircea_popescu: shit man that's obscure
fluffypony: the n-factor is determined by block height or something
mircea_popescu: yes yes
mircea_popescu: so what's your slice, like... bored one day ?
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: it made sense to do that than try do PayBee
mircea_popescu: aha
mircea_popescu: is paybee even functional yet ?
fluffypony: mircea_popescu: backend stuff, the VertPay guys have a dev team so some of the code's been discarded in favour of what they have, and some can be re-used
fluffypony: so everyone wins
