BingoBoingo: The Hong Kong dollar was pegged at 7.80 HKD per USD in 1983. Recently it has been trading at 7.75 HKD per USD, the strongest the HKMA permits it to float in the band around the peg.
BingoBoingo: This bet resolves as Yes if the HKD trades at 7.65 HKD per USD or stronger at any time before February 2015.

assbot: Inheritance and Individuation | Contravex: A blog by Peter Dushenski
DreadKnight: well, don't know about etherum, but I wish bitcoin was non-ASIC-able
DreadKnight: though that means mining of new coins would had stagnated at some point hmm
DreadKnight: so probably super bad idea
punkman: no ASICS = easier to attack
mircea_popescu: that's silly. asics are a major building block in our power. the only reason we're still fighting today is that we had asics in time.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 669 @ 0.0026351 = 1.7629 BTC [+]
DreadKnight: thought some people got into btc early and mined with cpu and gpu, now that's not useful; some of those people got rich and can easily afford lots of asics now to continue mining and make some more money, but they invested in some hardware which was not very usable for anything else and quite a risk, so it kinda forced bitcoin to be a non burstable bubble because of the hardware
DreadKnight: s/thought/though
DreadKnight: so ASIC not really bad if you think about it
DreadKnight: btc had plenty of time to be spread around nicely with already existing hardware
DreadKnight: I was considering ASICs as a "the rich get richer" sort of thing, but considering their utility/cost/risks, it's all good
mircea_popescu: you're focusing on the wrong things.
mircea_popescu: the point is not for some random fuckwits to "have a chance".
mircea_popescu: the point is for bitcoin to be as powerful as possible.
mircea_popescu: because, again, bitcoin is not here for the people, bitcoin is here for the elite.
DreadKnight: I understood from your previous argument
mircea_popescu: !up guest8645
DreadKnight: average joe won't know about bitcoin unless the elite implements it in businesses and requires it
mircea_popescu: pretty much.
DreadKnight: not know, better say "use"
DreadKnight: because bitcoin was on the tv news quite a few times around here at least
DreadKnight: "don't invest in btc, it's a bubble!" and after a while it showed a lot of stupid monkeys all like "I don't know how it works, but I sold x and y and invested it all into bitcoins" lol
mircea_popescu: !s from:naphex tv
cazalla: it's for the "other 6 billion" you greedy fucks!
DreadKnight: it will get there thanks to the elite
mircea_popescu: maybe the point was to make bitcoin so that every person has one.
mircea_popescu: putting the excess population by satoshi prophecy at about 6bn
DreadKnight: yes, but screw that, people can trade bucks rather
DreadKnight: it's not like I actually mined dollars in the first place to begin with xD
cazalla: DreadKnight, from what i've read, most that cpu -> gpu -> bfl mined ended up with nothing
DreadKnight: as expected, mtgox ftw xD
cazalla: well, that too but they were warned
cazalla: fortunately the right people have a good amount of coins, can you imagine the likes of andreas with thousands
DreadKnight: it's never ever wise to keep all money in the same spot ffs

The ATM could remain unbanked by having a separate cash dispenser and cash acceptor, and this would mean that it would require manual servicing to move the cash from one receptacle to the other."

chetty: the question comes down to, whats the sex in a stock exchange trade?
cazalla: met her online, she invited me over, i get there, lets me straight in and then tells me to be quiet because her kids are asleep, news to me at that point, she had kicked her husband out few days prior too
mircea_popescu: cazalla a that's no good.
ThickAsThieves: maybe i can translate for chetty, or at least put words in her mouth. you have a hyper-sexualized view of things, using sex as metaphor constantly, being quite horny, keeping sex slaves, sex is majorly part of your psyche, going so far as to imply a hypersexual person is a hypersuccessful person/ why do you think it's so important and how does this relate to the inferiority assumed by
ThickAsThieves: your average desexualized beta mangirl
mircea_popescu: well, the objection'd be that hyper requires an average, and not only is there a good objective average sex, but why would anyone care ? this then reduces the problem to a personal matter, "he talks more of it than i do. this is inconvenient for x y z reasons."
mircea_popescu: not only is there not*
mircea_popescu: remarkably enough, my use of the sex metaphor is actually unrelated to sex. it just happens to be an incredibly good structure for explaining things to people, especially people who haven't spent a lot of time thinking, either generally or on the topic at hand.
cazalla: only part that bothers me is half of mircea_popescu tumblr links look like they came from rusty and eddies

FoOdies5: personally
FoOdies5: it's in my top 10 ongoing retarded crypto schemes list

FoOdies5: firstly a coin created by a wallstreet guy is obviously a get rich quick/slow scheme
FoOdies5: either way it's a scheme
fluffypony: with a "stabilisation fund" that hasn't stabilised anything
FoOdies5: and dirac ... wat ?
FoOdies5: what the fuck can you stabilize with a premine ?
FoOdies5: maybe keep the coin from going up

FoOdies5: that you can do

FoOdies5: except maybe if he can outtrade the owner and get some money

fluffypony: I can't look at a PoS coin without thinking it stands for "piece of shit"
neuroMode: agreed

neuroMode: purposefully named with that acronym
neuroMode: i mean...let's create artificially rare coins that only have a week of distribution
neuroMode: now, let's all make it our job to try and convince someone else to buy it for more than we paid
neuroMode: with no other means of obtaining it
fluffypony: I don't fundamentally have an issue with PoS as an experiment (albeit one doomed for failure at present)
fluffypony: I just hate this bait-and-switch tactic that seems to be common
neuroMode: it becomes very obviously a pyramid scheme no matter how well disguised the marketing campaign is
neuroMode: and you know a dev is naive
fluffypony: launch a PoW shitcoin, and then "suddenly" announce it's changing to PoS
neuroMode: when he succumbs to his community's derailed wishes to turn POS

fluffypony: BingoBoingo: yep - what I meant is that I don't have a problem if someone launches a PoS coin with something fundamentally different to PPC, I don't think it's bad to play with stuff in a real-world environment
fluffypony: but they break their social contract when they launch as one thing and then suddenly change to another
neuroMode: pre-fucking-cisely
BingoBoingo: Well, the same breach happens when a coin switches from mining its own chain to merged mining
BingoBoingo: Many a lower case altcoin died that way
neuroMode: it just emphasizes the pointlessness and aimlessness of the coin, and makes the coin now flagged for possible scam
FoOdies5: BingoBoingo merged mining should be a feature for niche coins
FoOdies5: coins with the purpose of serving small niches that won't attract big mining
fluffypony: the ones that need to peg to another blockchain for security
BingoBoingo: FoOdies5: Not really, the market forces merged mining brings a lot of coins to an early slaughter.
BingoBoingo: Larger miners have an incentive to dump immediately
FoOdies5: so that via merged mining they secure their chain in exchange for a part of their reward
FoOdies5: merged mining + lower coinbase for auxpow
fluffypony: BingoBoingo: if it becomes the "in thing" to use your own cryptocurrency for loyalty systems we may see more of this

jwSchool: I'd rather not breathe chloroform and stuff all day

FoOdies5: I was refering to this "Bine ca l-au gasit pe cel cu rig-ul in pod si pe Vuscan, dar de Mircea Popescu (vechi prieten de al lui Zoso) – care are cea mai relevanta bursa de actiuni in bitcoin – nu au zis nimic."
FoOdies5: you a rap star now nigga, bitches claiming they know you and shit
mircea_popescu: well no, just, the ragazines that pretend to be romanian press have an ancient interdict with me, is the thing.
FoOdies5: srsly tho, good thing you're not friends with that shitface
FoOdies5: I would have hated you even more
mircea_popescu: some chick wanted to interview me once over a corruption scandal, pisse dme the fuck off, i ended up putting a pay barrier in place
mircea_popescu: and they really can't afford money.
mircea_popescu: FoOdies5 how do you know random nobodies from like nowehre to the degree you'd give a shit either way ?!
FoOdies5: oh please, have you ever seen these shitheads talk about bitcoin on tv ?
mircea_popescu: i dun watch tv.
asciilifeform: 's expensive these days
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform truely. everyone in some sectors is used to pay in promises.
FoOdies5: I was browsing one night and I stumbled upon a show talking about bitcoin
FoOdies5: a full half hour of the guy from btcxchange trying to explain bitcoin to an old ass relic
FoOdies5: shit was painfull to watch
mircea_popescu: FoOdies5 you old enough to have seen bruce wagner's old lolstuff ?

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo summarize it for me ?
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform shudders to think of what kind of 'bitcoin' could be seen on u.s. tv << I'll get you a video most horrifying

FoOdies5: watching taraf
FoOdies5: shit was bananas
mircea_popescu: why the fuck do you sound just like reddit then.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Basically trackbacks are great and you can curate them, but because link /= citation spammers on this protocol when identified need super spanked until they correct
FoOdies5: cuz I learned english from watching tv back when cartoon network was still not dubbed lol
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo but what's the offense, someone sending fake trackbacks that don't exist on the actual page ?
mircea_popescu: what, it's dubbed now ?!
FoOdies5: also I'm very maleable so whatever I watch on tv/laptop that day I kinda start talking like that
mircea_popescu: FUCK YOU DUB
FoOdies5: yeah it sucks major ass
FoOdies5: also the quality of the cartoons is next to nil
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Someone sending trackbacks I couldn't see, because linked in ad looking blindspot

FoOdies5: luckily there's boomerang who still broadcasts golden stuff
FoOdies5: like some hannah barbera shows
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: And that's why I had to assume spam.
FoOdies5: flintstones, jetsons some looney toons
BingoBoingo: Link to post was not visible without encondomed browser
FoOdies5: but seriously tho, seenig what kids these days grow up on, we're pretty much fucked
mod6: lol
BingoBoingo: But instead stuck in one of those ad things
FoOdies5: so save them bitcoins for old age
FoOdies5: because pensions are gone
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Maybe see if a neighbor girl can offer an explanation as a test?

BingoBoingo: A la Mike Hearn
FoOdies5: I apologize
FoOdies5: I'm still not fine tuned with the high level of references used in bitcoin-assets
FoOdies5: I'll be ok after a few days
FoOdies5: Hell I managed to stay cell boss over some pretty badass guys
FoOdies5: I can manage y'all
FoOdies5: unless you ban me
mircea_popescu: the other one was better imo.
BingoBoingo: FoOdies5: For all I know you could have been an emigre at middle school age, and now you're a terminal lance stationed at Costana assigned to intel
mircea_popescu: i mean he still sucked, but at least he was better at it.
BingoBoingo: I mean DreadKnight at least showed a classic romanian taste in game aesthetics
FoOdies5: Constanta nigga
FoOdies5: damn
FoOdies5: stop saying it wrong
FoOdies5: I did have a friend that got busted 2 months after I did in constanta

FoOdies5: I adapt
mircea_popescu: oh. so cell boss in THAT sense.
FoOdies5: no not THAT sense
FoOdies5: also prison !== preempttive arest
FoOdies5: single t*
kakobrekla: triple equal
FoOdies5: there's quite less violence and organization there
FoOdies5: as you're locked up 24/7
BingoBoingo is still in the russian concept of "Big Jail" over that alleged misdemeanor "turrurism" phone call
FoOdies5: with a small air break
FoOdies5: although trying to explain the concept to a pompous prick does seem like a lost cause
mircea_popescu: yeah, it sucks because you're in with noobs and not as likely to be able to bring massive support to bear.
mircea_popescu: which is why generally people prefer going with their retinue.
mircea_popescu: well, except the psychopaths.
FoOdies5: anyway, I'm out, perhaps we'll get the chance to meet in this lifetime I'd really love to flip you off in real life just for using unnecessarily complicated words in an irc channel

assbot: Falkenblog: Piketty's Terrifying Dystopia
BingoBoingo: Because it looks like no scheduled court date I have is ever going to be an actual trial
mircea_popescu: decimation intellectuals SHOULD run everything. the only problem is that the courtiers of the french republic are not intellectuals.
decimation: some Marxists think that the ancien regime was unfairly taxed because the richest were taxed at the lowest rates (or immune from tax)
mircea_popescu: well what do they know.
decimation: this seems to be the right idea to me, the principle being that the state recognizes those who are beyond its reach
mircea_popescu: and it wasn;t the richest. it was the better. which is what the peerage is : the better people.
