danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, sorry about that i got distracted with something
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: It's cool prolly nothing to bet on today seems like I'm totes ascending later
danielpbarron: heh, idk if I want to bet on that
danielpbarron: I've never been that into optimizing ascention stuff; my main account has never done it since before it was even an option
BingoBoingo: Well it would only be for the second time since you sold me meat, both on challenge paths
danielpbarron: so I don't really know what the odds would be
BingoBoingo: Eh, not so hard, you kill the naughty sourceress

BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Wait you are that old and never wanted to inherit another class's skills?
[]bot: Bet created: "Bitcoin to drop under $450 before September"
danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, at first I wanted to give it time to let others spade it out; eventually I decided I'd go for the wow factor of having a really old account that never ascended; plus I was mostly interested with the Mall, which is easier to use if you aren't focused on optimizing runs
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Ah, I made I guess... the mistake of doing some hardcore ascensions, but... I'm enjoying these new challenge paths
xanthyos: i ascended twice, having realized that i only felt comfortable in my original saucery

BingoBoingo: My favorite way to read those books in the past was page by page
HeySteve: heh doing it wrong
BingoBoingo: Nah it is a test of memory
BingoBoingo: Can you follow all paths at the same time
HeySteve: hmm training your memory for the card table perhaps?
BingoBoingo: HeySteve: Or life in general
HeySteve: my grandparents could recall all the cards played in a game of bridge. they'd review it afterwards, my grandfather criticizing granny's play
HeySteve: my memory's good but not nearly that good
Vexual: although, granny can't remember whose carkeys she chose
BingoBoingo: Vexual: Your grandparents still do key parties?
HeySteve: heh doubt that ever happened, they were real godly folk
ben_vulpes: Vexual: come on baby don't leave me hanging

DreadKnight: ben_vulpes, you nickname? not fond of MMORPGs as well, even got a bit insulted you thought I was making one, lol
DreadKnight: BingoBoingo, doing a bit of coding overall, what are you up to?
HeySteve: someone should make a Terry Pratchett game and call it Ankh-MMORPG
BingoBoingo: DreadKnight: Just getting ready for the month to end

DreadKnight: BingoBoingo, hmm
Vexual: whats happening won the atc scene?
BingoBoingo: Vexual: Well, WoL uses it
Vexual: yes, i haven't tried it get, i felt woozy last time i looked
BingoBoingo: I'll try to get the statement for how it was traded out on the 1st
DreadKnight: average total costs for mircea popescu investment fund, BingoBoingo ?
HeySteve: I saw WoL is influenced by the blockchain, how does that work?
BingoBoingo: DreadKnight: What do you mean by average total costs?
DreadKnight: BingoBoingo, not sure what ATC stands for otherwise
BingoBoingo: HeySteve: WoL actions happen as a result of blockchain events
Vexual: is there, like a cool workspace with an old streetfighter machine so I can remeber all my old combos while depositing?
BingoBoingo: DreadKnight: Altcoin, capitalized
DreadKnight: gotcha
BingoBoingo: Vexual: If only
HeySteve: BingoBoingo, I like that idea. want to use the blockchain myself as a kind of public dice roll
BingoBoingo: So... the peace corps is evacuating west Africa over Ebola
Vexual: whatcu mean evacuating, sucka?
Vexual: fat arse= plane?
Vexual: coz that sounds counterproductive
DreadKnight: Mr. T is in the house.
Vexual: oh
HeySteve: as long as that shit doesn't spread to south africa
DreadKnight: found it interesting that Mark Shuttleworth got rich in Africa
BingoBoingo: Vexual: I mean fleeing because they don't want Ebola since apparently white people get it nao
BingoBoingo: White Africans are everything wrong with Humanity
HeySteve: yeah shuttleworth invented some kinda certificate authority... thawt
DreadKnight: *The Human Stain movie*
BingoBoingo: Well, White Africans, Ohio, and Wrigleyville

DreadKnight: *cough* cisco *cough*
DreadKnight: HeySteve, I knew it had something to do with hardware, but that certificate made the real money?
DreadKnight: good to know
HeySteve: I think so, yeah. not sure why Web of Trust hasn't been more widely adopted over CAs
HeySteve: guess key parties aren't cool or something
DreadKnight: :D
DreadKnight: it's too "peer to peer"
DreadKnight: CAs tend to me more iconic and profitable, meaning more marketing done as well to brainwash people
DreadKnight: CAs are older concept in the industry, better rooted
HeySteve: hmm probably but WoT goes back to early days of PGP
BingoBoingo: Well, a CA is pretty much the definition of a pre-approved stooge

mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves now maybe my accounting's unfit for a goose, but how exactly do you go from 100k in assets to 4.5mn in assets when your net exercise is like 100k ?
mircea_popescu: wait my bad. the revenue is actually 800k, expenses 1.4mn.
ThickAsThieves: they didnt claim the btc in 2012 or someshit
mircea_popescu: notably, they got 70k in donations and 10x that from the "be a member and scam people" swindle.
ThickAsThieves: i still dont have my free membership
ThickAsThieves: so they have about 6000btc
mircea_popescu: end of 2013 ?
ThickAsThieves: yeah
ThickAsThieves: but they did mention same amount in Amsterdam
ThickAsThieves: roughly
ThickAsThieves: Jodie also said they only spend when they need cash

mircea_popescu: so basically they started with 5.7k, ended with 6.4k and got a total of 700 btc donated counted at an average of 900, so most of them early 2013.
ThickAsThieves: sounds plausible
mircea_popescu: this is quite well fitting with the history, they were only actually declared persona non grata later on.
ThickAsThieves: however, i'm skeptical all they got was 6k
ThickAsThieves: IPOs got way more than that on that timeline
mircea_popescu: why ?
ThickAsThieves: surely every ass throwin btc around threw some at TBF
mircea_popescu: ipos CLAIM more than that, because ipos don't file for taxes, typically.
ThickAsThieves: need wallet addy
ThickAsThieves: i also wonder about liquidity tricks
mircea_popescu: they posted a 77k investment income, which is probably a wrong statement,
mircea_popescu: it includes what they THINK they made daytrading,
mircea_popescu: whereas it should include that massive 4mn they got from btc
ThickAsThieves: say TBF sells 500btc at $200, but then price falls. Matonis sells 500btc for $150 and says the first set were his and second set was TBF
ThickAsThieves: just bs like that
mircea_popescu: what the fuck must this moss adams thing be thinking to publish unbalanced tax returns is beyond the mind's boggle.
ThickAsThieves: to what end though, they dont pay taxes
ThickAsThieves: so invetsment income being correcter does what
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves you know if matonis wishes to donate $50 to the foundation he doesn't have to go to all this complex trouble. or you mean it the other way around

ThickAsThieves: would it be appropriate to add measures to an0?
ThickAsThieves: like must report bitcoin holding addresses
ThickAsThieves: essentially promote transparency where available

mircea_popescu: an0 already reports that neh ?

mircea_popescu: nope.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves moreover, bitcoin is supposed to be anon.
BigBitz: asciilifeform what is that from?
mircea_popescu: as a general principle supporting any deanonimization measures is uncanonical.
ThickAsThieves: it's the current knot in my brain lately, whether this phenomenon is actually the one that kills anonymity
mircea_popescu: BigBitz the earlier pic with the two girls' bits.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves which phenomenon ?
BigBitz: didn't see the pic :(
ThickAsThieves: the aspects of bitcoin and decentralized networks that we all currently associae with anonymity
ThickAsThieves: the public ledger
mircea_popescu: !s d49250d4
assbot: 2 results for 'd49250d4' :
ThickAsThieves: the development that we can track everything reliably now
mircea_popescu: i musta been asleep for that development.
BigBitz: 'realibly' is debatable.
ThickAsThieves: referring to the same la serenissima topic from before
ThickAsThieves: where you can make a network that knows permanent record of all tx, and can now add identity network
ThickAsThieves: then once you do, it gains use, then becomes requirement
ThickAsThieves: anonymity my ass! future dood yells
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves but the requirement for you to have a face in the forum does not equate to a requirement for you to have a face in the treasury
mircea_popescu: this cleavage is essential.
ThickAsThieves: i'mn concerned they are entangled or will become so
ThickAsThieves: what if everyone really did require WoT for any trust situation
mircea_popescu: what then ?
ThickAsThieves: then what's anonymity?
mircea_popescu: anonymity is generally a curse.
ThickAsThieves: also part of my question
mircea_popescu: !up ADutchGamer
ThickAsThieves: why do we want anonymity at all
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves it's important in some places. specifically, money handling.
mircea_popescu: it's not even useful in social interractions.
ThickAsThieves: maybe, maybe not
ThickAsThieves: many would argue
ThickAsThieves: i dont enjoy the baggage of my hometown and people
mircea_popescu: so get out ?
ThickAsThieves: i did
mircea_popescu: generally people try to resolve through anonimity problems that have their solution elsewhere. because it's cheap.
ThickAsThieves: just syaing some ability to be clean-slated exists
ThickAsThieves: and desire for it
rithm: ThickAsThieves I moved back to my "home town" outside of the city limits now I'm being annexed
rithm: city council next tuesday
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves not like you can't make a new key any time you want.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of scary shit,
ThickAsThieves: right, but like i said, i'm envisioning some future where a new key is like being birn yesterday
ThickAsThieves: and you are treated as such
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves precisely what it is. and yes.
ThickAsThieves: that's what we want?
mircea_popescu: this is what anonymity already is. not a matter of what we want.
ThickAsThieves: hrm
mircea_popescu: how do you treat random 4channer./redditor/etc ?
mircea_popescu: not like he's been born yest ?
ThickAsThieves: so basically people mostly arbitrage their anonymity via lies, deception, unaccountability, ignorant bliss
mircea_popescu: something like that.
ThickAsThieves: maybe it's just being in america so long,
ThickAsThieves: but it's starting to feel surreal like that
ThickAsThieves: like everything is just a measure of fantasy
ThickAsThieves: how fake is this
mircea_popescu: well, human identity is precisely that.
ThickAsThieves: how much lying am i dealing with
ThickAsThieves: people get so mad when you poke at it
ThickAsThieves: it must be painful to be real
ThickAsThieves: fear of death maybe?
ThickAsThieves: mortality*
mircea_popescu: i think this was best discussed in relation to the perianne chick and my old class mate recently.
mircea_popescu: since the us has built this quite insane "valuation by social consensus" thing, people aim to impress others rather than do anything.
ThickAsThieves: but how is it so appealing?
ThickAsThieves: it's like junk food
ThickAsThieves: i guess
mircea_popescu: why is it so appealing. because standing in front of a bunch of people and telling them to get fucked is scary.
DreadKnight: the doge wants to play with that red ball xD
ThickAsThieves: so just stay away from people you want to fuck off

ThickAsThieves: Also, jurov, when will CoinBr support ATC? Geez!

ThickAsThieves: I have a dream that one day this coin will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that Altcoins are created equal and can be used to purchase MPEx stocks."
mircea_popescu: what, directly ?

mircea_popescu: anyone here have a positive view of teh demmurage notion ? fluffypony ? or who's the altcoin heretique du jour ?
fluffypony: I don't like it at all
fluffypony: I don't think it fixes anything
fluffypony: I do think a minimum subsidy at around the 0.4% - 1.5% mark is a better approach
mircea_popescu: what's a minimum subsidy ?
fluffypony: minsubsidy == lowest the block reward can go to
fluffypony: so the block reward will still taper down to that minsubsidy, but you'll never have a scenario where miner fees > block reward
mircea_popescu: once it's capped might as well make it fixed. 50 btc or w/e
fluffypony: yeah that's the other approach is to give it a fixed value instead of a % of supply
ben_vulpes: doge tried this. to disastrous results.
mircea_popescu: the difference between an infinite series and a finite series is marked. the difference between that last and a constant is not.

assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 12352 @ 0.00082262 = 10.161 BTC [-]
decimation: "A U.S. District Court has ruled that Argentina can't pay holders of restructured bonds until it compensates the holdouts, who have sued for full payment on bonds the country defaulted on in 2001. Some investors accepted discounted bonds in restructurings in 2005 and 2010. The bonds fall under New York jurisdiction because they were issued in New York."

The20YearIRCloud: guess i have a hard time grasping it
The20YearIRCloud: I don't understand why they issued debt through new york, unless they had to be approved in a US state in order to sell it here
BingoBoingo: the20year: Well, that's why New York Imagines they can regulate Bitcoin, because New York is where people used to have to trade if the wanted access to capital
The20YearIRCloud: lots of VC and capital in NY , i'm sure they feel like they're still gateway to the US
BingoBoingo: Well, this is why the trend in US States not named New York seems to be Not really regulating Bitcoin-Bitcoin interaction

The20YearIRCloud: are there any states that have said they want to regulate?
BingoBoingo: They dunno how Big Bitcoin might get, but if it takes off this seems to be the chance for them to leave New York's shadow
