Vexual: whats the loan for?
wyrdmantis: yeah, first is to improve my rating, i'm a trader, i've got many loans on btcjam
Vexual: drop a link bitch
Vexual: vut you're talking about corruption
nubbins`: !up wyrdmantis
nubbins`: wyrdmantis: generally, asking for and receiving loans is a poor way to earn trust
wyrdmantis: corruption?
wyrdmantis: nubbins, ok
wyrdmantis: what's a better way?
nubbins`: that's fine in the fiat, aka fake bitcoin ($, €, etc), world
nubbins`: a better way to gain trust is to perform actions that cause others to trust you
nubbins`: this is an impossibly open answer, i know
nubbins`: suppose a stranger approached you on the street and asked for a loan of $20 for one week. you said sure, gave him the $20, a week later he finds you and pays you back.
nubbins`: do you trust this person now?
nubbins`: do you trust them enough to loan them another $20? $100? $1000?
wyrdmantis: yeah, i have your point
Vexual: link your btcjam thing
nubbins`: personally, i don't trust people who take loans at all
nubbins`: others may have different criteria
wyrdmantis: on btcjam it works
Vexual: its a thing
wyrdmantis: ok vexual, wait a moment

assbot: JSON-RPC method idea: list transactions newer than a given txid
fluffypony: he basically says that you should never rely on the details of a transaction as a developer
fluffypony: as they can change
fluffypony: he literally spoke about the thing that mtgox did that made them vulnerable to malleability attacks
fluffypony: "Programmers are naturally inclined to want to use listtransactions like this: feed me the new transactions since I last asked, and I'll keep my own tally or static record of them. This will seem to work in all regular use, but if you use the amounts for anything, it is highly exploitable"
Vexual: the genreal thing is to ask .info
chetty: what you think devs read history? Its right in there with reading the manual

asciilifeform: an improvement, even if genuine, will be condemned to grind out a meagre existence as an altchain.
mjr_: and there are certain things you CANNOT do anymore which you COULD before
mircea_popescu: <mjr_> i am saying that the code that is running on some mining machines is not the same code that ran in 2011 <<< this.
mjr_: so to say that it hasn't changed is flat out wrong
mircea_popescu: that's fine. narrowing is always fine.
mjr_: you can say that the core features that you find useful have not changed
mjr_: and perhaps they never will
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform sounds perfect, really.
BingoBoingo: !up Jezzz Good Boy!
mjr_: but that isn't to say that extraneous features aren't removed, or stupid ones added
mircea_popescu: mjr_ yes, it is to say exactly that.
mjr_: you agree that it narrowed, that some features were removed
mjr_: but you also say that no, no features are removed?
mircea_popescu: understand, if some kid somehwere adds a condom to his parent's the tv set, this is exactly meaningless to television.
mjr_: ok, and yet i don't like condoms on my tv sets
mjr_: so I notice a difference
mircea_popescu: narrowing fundamentally means those features never actually existed.
mjr_: no, they did
mjr_: that is like saying bankrupt companies never existed
mjr_: they clearly did
mjr_: and then they didn't
mircea_popescu: if i let you live in my garage because i'm too lazy to kick you out today, that doesn't mean the garage is your home.
mjr_: does it have all the elements that i would look for in a home?
mircea_popescu: you may understandably wish to misrepresent it as such. nevertheless... it is not.
BingoBoingo: pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes Login seems borked.
mjr_: i say if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, its a duck
mircea_popescu: same thing with bs "features" that meanwhile got thrown out, same thing with bs features the spyteam has been trying to insert.
mjr_: i agree
mjr_: not useful
mjr_: BUT still available to be used
mjr_: for example
mjr_: have you heard of multisig? it was not enabled, now it is
mircea_popescu: a gun is available to be used somewhere. it may even be used by mike hearn.
mjr_: that is a difference
mircea_popescu: that won't make the gun aprt of bitcoin.
mjr_: ok, fair enough
mjr_: tell me multisig is not a thing, and i concede
mircea_popescu: multisig is not a thing.
mjr_: tell me i can't craft a multisig transaction right now
mjr_: that will be accepted by the network
mjr_: valid per bitcoin rules
mircea_popescu: luke is trying to pretend like it is. that matters in the sense luke trying to pretend obama is jesus matters.
mjr_: ok, let me try broadcasting one
xmj: you can't craft a multisig transaction right now that will be accepted by the network valid per bitcoin rules
mjr_: and when it is rejected you are right
xmj: gnihihi
mjr_: you can
mjr_: it is done NOW
xmj: mjr_: you wanted someone to tell you that
mjr_: i'm saying that you can bury your head in the sand, it doesn't mean that reality ceases to exist
mircea_popescu: ...
TheNewDeal: mjr_ pix or it dint happen
mjr_: there was a point where you could not do a multisig
mjr_: now you can
mjr_: that is a difference
mjr_: i don't give a shit how you try to spin that
mircea_popescu: mjr_ the day you can withdraw mpex funds to a multisig address i might care.
mjr_: it is an obvious difference
mircea_popescu: that day isn't here yet.
mjr_: ok, that is your personal choice
xmj: eheheh
mjr_: and your personal choice is not the bitcoin network rules
mircea_popescu: the fact you can make proper payments out of your braindamaged 3whatever also doesnt matter
mjr_: the rules changed
mjr_: i don't care...yuo said the protocol hadn't changed
mircea_popescu: your "multisig" thing is only relevant inasmuch you can actually pay out of it.
mjr_: which you can do
mircea_popescu: it hasn't dood.
mjr_: using the blockchain
mjr_: i really don't see how you can say that
mircea_popescu: suppose some kids decide they will have a cocksucking mining contest.
pete_dushenski: bats_cd03: oops: http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a420193.pdf re: composite materials in aircraft incidents involving fire << nice find!
mjr_: unless you mean something different
mircea_popescu: has mining now changed ?
mircea_popescu: because some kids somewhere are blowing each other on the machines ?
mjr_: yes
mjr_: it has
mircea_popescu: eh get out.
mjr_: because before
mjr_: miners would reject that
mjr_: now they accept that
mjr_: that would be the textbook definition of a change
mjr_: how about a simpler one
mircea_popescu: no.
mjr_: you couldn't do tx of a certain size before
TheNewDeal: mircea_popescu did http://btc.blockr.io/tx/info/17577cd6133ae129f98be3aefd072d3c0d59d84fe32de02cab9746b970dd8b49 on this game https://btc.waroflife.com/gow/22/activity/ win the double your wager prize?
assbot: War of Life - Cellular automata to the death!
mjr_: now you can
mircea_popescu: the day I AM FORCED TO ACCEPT IT something changed.
mircea_popescu: until that day. have fun and i don't care.
mjr_: i never said you had to care
mjr_: or even notice
mircea_popescu: so it never changed.
mjr_: i said that you can use the subset of features
mjr_: and ignore the rest
mircea_popescu: if math changes and 2 + 3 = 6 instead, then that's a change.
mjr_: that doesn't mean it hasn't changed, you conflate backwards compatible with identical
mircea_popescu: if people decide to write 2+3 as 3+2 from now on, that's just a fashion
xmj: nah
mircea_popescu: backwards compatible is identical.
mjr_: i can run 32 bit programs on my 64 bit machine
mjr_: not identical
xmj: bullshit
mjr_: or are we arguing the defintion of identical
xmj: well, too bad mircea_popescu is ignoring me
mircea_popescu: apparently.
mjr_: identical means there is no difference
xmj: A works on B doesn't imply B works on A
mircea_popescu: so what if i hexedit the gui and make it pink
mjr_: i can run diff on the code and it comes out "no changes"
mircea_popescu: has bitcoin protcol now changed because pink gui ?
xmj: necessary and sufficient conditions, all over
mjr_: yes
mjr_: that is a change
mjr_: 100% certainly
mircea_popescu: yeah well that's nutty.
mjr_: may be, but it is a change
mjr_: to say that the color...changed, but there was no change
mircea_popescu: aite, go ahead an' change the world.
mjr_: is logically impossible
mjr_: so, we can agree, you don't care about the changes, they don't affect you, they are irrelevant
mjr_: they may cease to exist
mircea_popescu: what's logically impossible is to imagine the bitcoin protocol is something that extends all the way to your soup.
mjr_: they may be misguided or stupid
mjr_: but they are changes
mjr_: huh?
assbot: Last 357 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/3VFWKZS.txt )
BingoBoingo: !b 357
mjr_: i didn't bring up soup
mjr_: i am talking about running diff on code
mjr_: easy way to see if things have changed
mircea_popescu: protocol is not code.
assbot: Last 3 lines bashed and pending review. ( http://dpaste.com/1FZZVMR.txt )
BingoBoingo: !b 3
mjr_: ok...and if i add acceptable messages to a protocol
mjr_: that protocol changed
mjr_: for example, you added commands to mpex
mjr_: that changed the protocol of what messages were acceptable to mpex
mjr_: this is simple
mjr_: and i can do it all day
mircea_popescu: notrly. it only changed it when old ones stopped working.
mjr_: ok
mjr_: so you only changed it
mjr_: the protocol
mjr_: for a good reason
mjr_: you changed it
mircea_popescu: well sure. it's mine to change.
mjr_: yes
mjr_: and bitcoin is the miners to change
mircea_popescu: not so fast there :)
mjr_: and they have
mjr_: many times
mircea_popescu: notrly.
mjr_: for fucks sake, there was a fork in the fucking blockchain because people didn't agree on which version to use
mircea_popescu: and the new version died.
mjr_: how could you have a clearer example of the protocol changing
mjr_: ok...
mjr_: but it did change
mjr_: and there was a conflict
mircea_popescu: mno. change died.
mjr_: what died
mjr_: the change that happened?
mjr_: how can something thta doesn't exist die
mircea_popescu: anyway, here's the story : i hire you to lay bricks for me. that's your job.
mircea_popescu: one day you come with a hat
mircea_popescu: the next day without
mircea_popescu: the third wioth a hangover
mjr_: thats a change
mjr_: each day
mircea_popescu: you figure your job has changed each day ?
xmj: lol
mjr_: no, my ability to do my job
mircea_popescu: one day job was "lay bricks with hat", the next" lay bricks without hat" ?
mjr_: how you would describe me to someone who you wanted to find me
mjr_: yes
mjr_: find my employee, he is the guy laying bricks wearing a hat
mircea_popescu: well so there you go. you wish o matter personally, but i don't give a shit. im your employer not your lover.
mjr_: that description is no longer valid on a different day
mircea_popescu: all i see is the bricks laid.
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo, pete_dushenski: thx guys something went south during server swtich
mjr_: no...
mjr_: i am saying that right now, i can use multisig
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: You're welcom
mjr_: the job that is done has new possibilties
mjr_: i can lay bricks or i can lay cinder blocks
mjr_: but you think i can only lay bricks
mjr_: and you only want bricks
mjr_: thats good for you
mircea_popescu: mjr_ you could multisig before you.
godovo: wow
mjr_: i'm not saying that you have to change, i am saying that new features are added
mjr_: that is a fact
mjr_: you don't have to use them
mjr_: you don't have to notice or care
mjr_: that doesn't change reality
pete_dushenski: ben_vulpes: it's was all BingoBoingo :)
mjr_: there are new features that the bitcoin protocol allows
mircea_popescu: reality is not what some derps somewhere feel is the case.
mjr_: no
pete_dushenski: it*
mjr_: reality is the state of the world
mjr_: the state of the network
mjr_: i don't give a shit about a derp saying anything
mircea_popescu: cool. so then there we go.
mjr_: i give a shit about a transaction crafted a certain way included in ablock
mjr_: and those transactions, that you say don't exist
mjr_: are in blocks
mircea_popescu: you can put any random data in blocks.
mjr_: so either, things that are recorded in a block don't matter
mircea_popescu: including pictures of twelve year olds taking horse cock.
mjr_: you could call all of the data random
mircea_popescu: this was done already.
mircea_popescu: not all of it, no.
mjr_: i could view all of the blockchain as random
mjr_: yes i could
mjr_: it is statistically possible to get that arrangement of bits by chance
mjr_: we choose to ascribe meaning to this configuration
mjr_: from this meaning, we can maintain records
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Fix so I can do "Robin Williams DIY Project" ad buy
mjr_: and new records are allowed in, and are accepted as being records
mjr_: if that is not the case, then none of bitcoin protocol matters, because it is subjective
mjr_: i don't think your tx is anything other than random data
mircea_popescu: that'd be where you're wrong.
mircea_popescu: it matters precisely because it is subjective, and accepted.
mjr_: yes
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 100 @ 0.01236309 = 1.2363 BTC [+] {4}
mjr_: and those features you don't like are accepted and valid
mircea_popescu: this is what renders the subjective but unaccepted parts irrelevant.
mircea_popescu: not by me.
mircea_popescu: and until the day they're accepted by me, they don't exist.
mircea_popescu: this is how this works.
mjr_: i, perhaps the only one, do not judge bitcoins protocol by what you find valid
mjr_: i judge it based on what i need, and what i can do
mircea_popescu: well apparently you judge it by what you find valid.
mjr_: ok...
mjr_: lets say
mircea_popescu: right. good for you.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 207 @ 0.01239 = 2.5647 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: so your bitcoin has changed, mine hasn't, there we go.
mjr_: that if i send a multisig tx to someone, they will in return send me 1,000,000 bitcoin
mjr_: i do it, i get the money
mircea_popescu: that someone won;'t be me.
mjr_: nope, it won't
mircea_popescu: so go talk to them :)
mjr_: do i care? not at all
mjr_: the market decides what features are in bitcoin
mjr_: same as it always has
mircea_popescu: again ?
mjr_: and if i need to do business with you
mjr_: i can work with the limited subset of the protocol you find valid
mjr_: there is no reason why people can't send floppy disks to people who have the right converters
mircea_popescu: "the market" doesn't decide jack shit. if "the market" decides things, we might as well make coinbase the new fed and welcome wall street on their own terms.
mjr_: it is still a valid form of recording data
mjr_: if the market thinks that is a good idea :)
mjr_: i don't have to though
mircea_popescu: fuck it sideways and good riddance.
mjr_: i agree
mjr_: again
mjr_: i believe you conflate backwards compatible, or option with identical
mircea_popescu: so, yeah. the market may decide anything it wants for just as long as it stays strictly within what i find paltable. that';s how this thing works.
mjr_: i have an option to use multisig
mjr_: i don't have to
mjr_: yeah, you use the parts of it that you like, and don't use the parts you don't
xmj: i have an option to have a girlfriend
mircea_popescu: you have an option to do whatever the fuck it is you want to do at all junctures anyway.
xmj: i don't have to
xmj: - every nerd
mjr_: maybe i overly jump to your hyperbole
mjr_: why not just go ahead and say that bitpay doesn't exist?
mircea_popescu: notably, you could have used multisig at any point starting in 2009, and plenty of people did.
mjr_: or altcoins
mjr_: yeah, you could have
mircea_popescu: you can share keys and whatnot with or without bitcoin.
mjr_: you also could have sent coins to an ip address
mjr_: remember that?
mjr_: i cannot now send coins to an ip address
mircea_popescu: and if one day they include a weather service in some client, that'll be about as much change.
mjr_: i agree
mjr_: in other words, a change
mjr_: which was my point
mjr_: but if i only wanted to be able to send to ip addresses
mjr_: if that was my core feature set
mjr_: i'd be an idiot
mircea_popescu: that was an actual fork.
xmj: when will bitcoind be able to read/send email?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.EXCH] 68 @ 0.02523161 = 1.7157 BTC [-]
mjr_: but also, someone who can't actually use the network for what i want
mjr_: how can you fork without changing?
mircea_popescu: and a welcome one at that. fucking ip addresses nuttery.
mjr_: i agree
mjr_: so get rid of a stupid features
mjr_: sounds like a good CHANGE
mircea_popescu: satoshi did that you know.
mjr_: i know
mjr_: i don't suck his dick
mircea_popescu: well it makes a difference.
mjr_: he made tons of mistakes
mjr_: and lots of good stuff
mircea_popescu: yeah, but he was also the only one with the authority to make changes.
mjr_: overall, way more good
mjr_: WAS
mjr_: and gave that up
mircea_popescu: exaclty.
xmj: again i want to mention the NSA => satoshi article
mjr_: in fact
mircea_popescu: no further satoshi, no further changes.
mjr_: passed that down to gavin
mircea_popescu: end of story.
xmj: and i'm perfectly too lazy to copypaste it.
mircea_popescu: nope.
mjr_: well...apparently the legions of the faithful didn't know that
mircea_popescu: tough for them.
mjr_: because they have been letting gavin make tons of changes
mjr_: which the miners faithfully run
mjr_: and derps use
mjr_: doesn't mean you have to
mircea_popescu: is deepbit still on 0.3.x ?
mjr_: doesn't affect you
mjr_: no clue
mjr_: i agree with you
mjr_: that they can add what ever fuckery they want
mjr_: as long as they don't affect the things i use
mjr_: i could care less
mjr_: start greenaddresses or purpleaddresses
mjr_: i don't care, as long as i can generate my own address whenever i want
mjr_: and do business with who i want
mjr_: but...
xmj: !up godovo
mjr_: i won't say that things i see don't exiest
mjr_: i will say they are stupid
mjr_: and there is a better way
mjr_: but you can't call something stupid if it doesn't exist...
mjr_: and i know how you love to call things stupid...
mircea_popescu: what are you talking about ? abstractions don't exist they get called stupid all the time
mjr_: its a stupid idea
mjr_: the idea exists
mjr_: in fact, physically
mircea_popescu: eh get out.
mjr_: there is an arragement of neurons in a certain configuration in some physical space

BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Ty
mircea_popescu: not that this worlview isn't common with twentysomething impudent cocklets. but it is universally working to their detriment.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes hardly.
ben_vulpes: k. i'm clearly behind on my logs.
mjr_: heya ben_vulpes
ben_vulpes: long time no talk, mjr_.
mjr_: yeah
mjr_: been a while
ben_vulpes: what've you been up to?
mjr_: working, playing around on some projects
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes he now works for... wait for it...
mircea_popescu: bitfinex.
mjr_: yep
mjr_: i do
mjr_: i like it
mjr_: only been 2 weeks, but i like the guys i work with, i have a lot of autonomy
mjr_: before that i was working at coinapult, which was also fun
mjr_: built locks with some cool people
mjr_: not sure what you think of those, guessing not good
mjr_: lol
mjr_: i expect to be torn to shreds here
mjr_: which is not that bad
ben_vulpes: i really have no opinions about these things
ben_vulpes: coinapult is coins via email
mjr_: was
ben_vulpes: bitfinex is an exchange of sorts
mjr_: still is somewhat
mjr_: locks is the newest product
ben_vulpes: "locks"?
kakobrekla: what happened at coinapult
mjr_: which is basically pegging bitcoin to some asset
ben_vulpes: pahaha how on earth?!
mjr_: nothing, that project was done, and i like the guys at bitfinex
mjr_: still hang out with the coinapult crew
mjr_: going to eriks wedding in sept
mjr_: its an ewallet
mjr_: so you say want to have an amount of bitcoin that reflects the gold/usd price
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes nah, lots of history there. bitfinex was a coupla twerps that took the leaked bitcoinica codebase and started a new bitcoinica, back in 2012ish ? early 2013 ? (that code was in the wild because after the nth breach, amir taaki of bitcoin consultancy fame "open sourced" it by releasing it without rights)
ben_vulpes: nope nope nope
mjr_: we hedge, and you will always get say an oz of gold worth of bitcoin
ben_vulpes: i ain't letting anyone hedge with my coins
mjr_: yeah bitcoinica was a fuckup
mjr_: yeah, i get you
mjr_: not for everyone
mircea_popescu: then about six months or so later some people involved had a very public breakup replete with tardstalk scam tag requests, much in the manner the bitcoin magazine takeover worked
mjr_: hold up, you are talking about bitcoinica?
mircea_popescu: then not a peep for about a year. so someone with some sort of competence took over. but mjr_ ain't telling who.
ben_vulpes: if i want to turn my paper dollars into paper gold, i'm just going to whelk my fiat down to Schwabe and let them do what they do
kakobrekla: id say bitfinex chumpatron is working just fine
mjr_: omg
mjr_: that may have been the nicest thing i've heard mircea_popescu say
mircea_popescu: mjr_ but kakobrekla has a good q, what happened at coinapult ?
mjr_: nothing
mjr_: i worked on locks, since i knew a little about hedging
mjr_: but i like doing more than just programming
mjr_: and have a few projects
mircea_popescu: so you're still in panama. basically what, erik bought bitfinex ?
mjr_: so i figured i would find something that lets me do more stuff i like, but still program
mjr_: nope
mjr_: he is busy working on his wedding
mjr_: not sure if he could afford it...maybe
mjr_: but i'm going to eriks wedding in sept
mjr_: but yeah, i mean, you know me, i like to talk
mjr_: and programming != talking much
mjr_: so, felt a little one dimensional
mircea_popescu: well someone's behind there, the people originally involved with bitfinex ain't got the resources required.
mjr_: and now i get to talk, they wanted someone to be out in public
mjr_: yeah, that is the beauty of that place

TimSwanson: That is an ad hominem
mircea_popescu: now, if you want to talk about my think, and i say you're stupid, this can not be waved aside by you claiming it's an ad hominem.
TimSwanson: That is what the authors of articles in The Economist, do not sign their names
mircea_popescu: i would know if it were or if it weren't. you, however, wouldn't.
TimSwanson: because the arguments are supposed to stand for themselves
TimSwanson: That is besides the point
mircea_popescu: so. inasmuch as you wish to continue, on the general expectation that bitcoin will eventually conform to your worldview, you're more than welcome to it.
TimSwanson: Mircea, you need to deal with the content of the chapters
mircea_popescu: however, this will positively never happen. bitcoin will just ruin academia as you know it and that's that.
TimSwanson: And not just say "hey, I don't know him"

TheNewDeal: Can I please argue for a moment
TimSwanson: You attacked me in a post
mircea_popescu: i didn't attack you.
TimSwanson: That's an ad hominem
TimSwanson: Yes you did
TheNewDeal: I have a bone to pick with this statement "This is a mistake that we see in full force today in which the quantity of money available has shrunk due to theft, scams, purposeful burning, accidental destruction, etc."
TimSwanson: You said I was a "environmental scholar"
mircea_popescu: i scored you. the difference here is that in order to attack you we'd have to share something. we do not.
mircea_popescu: what exactly do you do for a living ?
TimSwanson: Haha, okay
TimSwanson: I hope you enjoy your journey on the High Horse
TimSwanson: If you clicked "About the author" you might know
mircea_popescu: i have, which is how i got to this idea
TimSwanson: I do a lot work with Bitcoin startups, legal ones
mircea_popescu: now, i may well have misunderstood you. so, what do you do ?
TimSwanson: I have said so in many interviews
TimSwanson: I work doing market research for Bitcoin companies
mircea_popescu: none that apparently ever mattered.
mircea_popescu: so you think.
TimSwanson: Okay, nice
TimSwanson: Any other personal insults you'd like to make?
mircea_popescu: looky : i've been fran kto you. now, can i get a frank answer to what exactly it is you do, for a living ?
mircea_popescu: as a profession. what's your degree. something.
TimSwanson: I get paid to interview people, find out what they do and then write it up
TimSwanson: Go to my LinkedIn
TimSwanson: It's on my site
turbo_ac100: g'night guys. New key tommorrow :)
mircea_popescu: you think this is somehow more respectable than "evironment scholar" ?
TimSwanson: I have never done anything with the "environment"
mircea_popescu: Timothy Swanson Timothy Swanson is an American economics scholar specializing in environmental governance, ... << is this you ?
TimSwanson: I used to actually build mining machines
TimSwanson: no
TimSwanson: That's wikipedia
TimSwanson: Another guy
mircea_popescu: so you're not that tim swanson.
TimSwanson: If you actually clicked on my LinkedIn, you would see that is the case
mircea_popescu: okay, i'll have to fix that article, no scholar environmental or otherwise.
mircea_popescu: link it.
TimSwanson: Busy with other stuff, you can click on it by visiting: www.ofnumbers.com/about-the-author

RagnarDanneskjol: i dont think blogging is a real job, no?
mircea_popescu: and as to the earlier point : there is no such thing as "legal ones" re bitcoin companies. there's bitcoin companies, and then there's fiat companies that try to make a buck off bitcoin
mircea_popescu: these two have exactly zero in common.
mircea_popescu: RagnarDanneskjol arguably i make a living blogging these days, so who's to know anymore.
TimSwanson: Blogging is not my job
TimSwanson: Honestly, I didn't come here to be personally insulted, I thought you actually had data
mircea_popescu: Great Chain of Numbers: A Guide to Smart Contracts, Smart Property and Trustless Asset Management
mircea_popescu: March 3, 2014
mircea_popescu: Authors: Tim Swanson
TimSwanson: Instead, you're just attacking me
RagnarDanneskjol: I can make a living camping and foraging, does not make it a real job
TimSwanson: Do you have any actual complaints with say, Chapter 3?
mircea_popescu: TimSwanson you ever read http://trilema.com/2012/gpg-contracts/ ?
assbot: GPG contracts pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
TimSwanson: Yes, I linked to it in my recent book saying it won't work
TimSwanson: Chapter 17
TimSwanson: in a footnote
TheNewDeal: teach me your secrets
TimSwanson: Pay me money
mircea_popescu: TimSwanson now we're getting somewhere.
TimSwanson: Look, all you have to do, is read either book and then you can say what you disagree with
TimSwanson: Imagine if the book had no author, then it would just be about the actual content of the book
TimSwanson: Instead, you have wasted about 10 minutes trying to attack me
mircea_popescu: if the book had no author i definitely wouildn't read it.
TimSwanson: Okay, that's your loss
mircea_popescu: i don't think you understand how this works. things need a source to exist.
TimSwanson: I cite hundreds of sources
TimSwanson: Other sources
TimSwanson: Look in the Endnotes
mircea_popescu: hundreds of sources eh ?
TimSwanson: Yes, you should press the blue underlined hyperlink button to open the book
mircea_popescu: this is readily reducible to the problem of "i have a very high wot score". it's not the number. it's the identity.
mircea_popescu: dja grok how the wot works ?
TimSwanson: Then on the right side there is a "scroll bar", go down to the bottom
TimSwanson: I am not interested in your WoT games
TimSwanson: I came here out of curteousy
TimSwanson: I have answered your questions
mircea_popescu: right. so if you're not interested in bitcoin, why should i care what you wrote down somewhere ?
TimSwanson: My WoT in the real world is pretty good
TimSwanson: You are the one leaving comments on my blog
mircea_popescu: this is pretty much the gist of the problem. get interested in bitcoin or get used to not being taken seriously, i guess.
TimSwanson: If you weren't interested, why would you leave it?
TimSwanson: You are not a gatekeeper for bitcoin
TimSwanson: You do not get to decide who is or is not interested
mircea_popescu: i left a comment on an article that pingbacked my article,
TimSwanson: That defeats the whole purpose of permissionless
TimSwanson: It auto-pings
TimSwanson: Welcome to 2003
mircea_popescu: and i left it because it was apparent to me that you don't, on your own, possess the intellectual means to comprehend the problem.
TimSwanson: What is the problem I do not comprehend?
mircea_popescu: now, whether this session helped or didn't is unclear, but at least i tried.
TimSwanson: I don't have to be a Bitcoin Taliban to understand how it works
TimSwanson: What did you try?
TimSwanson: Insulting me?
mircea_popescu: well, i suppose the way to reference it in your system would be "the wot games".
TimSwanson: You have provided no data for your position
TimSwanson: I understand WoT
mircea_popescu: you aren't yet enough of a something to be insultable im affraid.
TimSwanson: I have a big network in the real world outside caves
TimSwanson: So you invited me, to insult me?
mircea_popescu: that's nice.
mircea_popescu: well now look. so do you understand the wot or don't you.
TimSwanson: What is your actual argument?
TimSwanson: Yes, I am not in your WoT
TimSwanson: I am not interested in being your WoT
TimSwanson: I am interested in research, with data
mircea_popescu: my actual argument is that you're captive in a mostly meanginless structure, and that it's a shame, basically.
TimSwanson: That was not your argument
TimSwanson: You called me names
TimSwanson: And ignored "a"
TimSwanson: Whoever "a" was
mircea_popescu: you're not about to tell me what my argument is, now is it ?
TimSwanson: Brought up good points on mining costs
TimSwanson: Look, I have to go in about 5 minutes
mircea_popescu: have fun.
TimSwanson: Do you actually have some data about mining you want to chat about?
TimSwanson: Or did you just want to insult me?
RagnarDanneskjol: please stay, this is highly entertaining
mircea_popescu: no, but should you wish to actually learn about bitcoin, this channel is here.
mircea_popescu: there's also a log.
TimSwanson: Haha, you're right, I have no idea what Bitcoin is, at all
mircea_popescu: so you can do it discreetly if ego wound avoidance is such a priority.
TimSwanson: Please, tell me the way, the truth and the light
mircea_popescu: indeed, that's the gist of it.
TimSwanson: Look, you sound a lot like any other religious leader who says "you cannot understand the movement unless you're part of it"
TimSwanson: It's a non sequitur
mircea_popescu: also a¬ stands for.. .a-non
TimSwanson: Either you have an argument with data, or just rhetoric
mircea_popescu: i thought it was pretty clever.
mircea_popescu: i am not actually saying that.
TimSwanson: Okay, so "a-non had an interesting couple of points
TimSwanson: About the costs of mining
mircea_popescu: what i am saying is that you can never have something meanginful to say about a culture from outside of it.
TimSwanson: The costs of mining have seen and unseen aspects
TimSwanson: Bitcoin is open source tech
TimSwanson: It's not culture
mircea_popescu: well that'd be where we differ
mircea_popescu: bitcoin is irreducible to fiat.
TimSwanson: Show me the line of code that has "culture" in it?
mircea_popescu: this'd be a fine example of the strawman in question. you imagine this is a meaningful question, but it isn't.
TimSwanson: This si the same problem cypherpunks had back in the '90s
TimSwanson: They built really cool tech like PGP or even Digicash and ZKS but couldn't find a target market in a profitable manner
RagnarDanneskjol: </member><member name="P:Bitcoin_import_key.My.Resources.Resources.Culture">
mircea_popescu: i doubt thinking of those people in collective terms is very sensible, but anyway.
TimSwanson: Are you a bot?
TimSwanson: You have not said anything about mining
mircea_popescu: "cypherpunks" didn't "build pgp"
mod6: lel
TimSwanson: Pretty sure the cypherpunks in California would disagree with you, Phil Zimmerman may have coded it, but they dreamt it up, etc.
mircea_popescu: oh they dreamt it up
mircea_popescu: show me the dream in the code.
TimSwanson: Anyways, I am gonna take off
TimSwanson: Was nice chatting with the community here
TimSwanson: Feel free to email me if you have any other questions
TimSwanson: Cheers
mod6: m00
mircea_popescu: this being the main reason. people get so emotionally invested in their fiat-denominated holdings they simply can't adapt.
mircea_popescu: and it's funny what actually plays the role of fiat-denominated investment in most cases.
mircea_popescu: not like this dude is rich or anything.
RagnarDanneskjol: that's the bay area for ya
mircea_popescu: anyone bored enough to extract the footnote in question from chapter 17, lemmeknow. i got a log to read.
mircea_popescu: somehow i'd much rather spend my time reading that than listen to songs someone wrote based on poems they wrote (the world needs more singers-songwriters and fewer doctors and engineers!)
TheNewDeal: you would rather read that trash?
TheNewDeal: I can only presume there's some thick sarcasm I'm missing
mircea_popescu: fluffypony: he literally spoke about the thing that mtgox did that made them vulnerable to malleability attacks << this is a major part of why mtgox debacle was so funny to the old timers.
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal what trash, th logs ?
TheNewDeal: oh gotcha. Thought you meant that dude's writings
mircea_popescu: ah, him. well, if he manages to get over himself he might actually do something useful at some point.
mircea_popescu: is this the first time i got called a religious leader btw ?
TheNewDeal: "Bitcoin may be able to do that one day, but maybe not at the current $40 per transaction cost structure. " What troll-drugs is this guy smoking
dignork: TheNewDeal: it sounds like fallacy, but it's partially true
TheNewDeal: I have never paid $40 per transaction
mircea_popescu: dignork did that go just about the way you expected ?
TheNewDeal: I have never paid 1$ per transaction
dignork: usdbtcprice/average number of tx per block
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal it's the old "bitcoin is nto visa" thing.
mircea_popescu: ;;isitdown google.com
gribble: google.com is up

dignork: TheNewDeal: yeah, but it's an extrapolation, to when miners payouts drop to zero
TheNewDeal: I've read that comment before

mircea_popescu: dignork how old is the dude anyway ?
mircea_popescu: locklin never managed to get over being told off.
mircea_popescu: i would imagine somewhere 30ish is the cutoff.
mircea_popescu: chetty: How exactly are we to successfully and correctly examine ourselves when the only ?normal? we know is found in the boiling pot of water we presently occupy? << trilema!11!11!eleven :D
dignork: mircea_popescu: not sure, from linkedin pic - 30 or so, i'm bad with age detection
mircea_popescu: looks 48 to me, but what do i know.
mircea_popescu: %p
atcbot: [CoinMiner Hashrate]: 0.09 TH/s [PityThePool Hashrate]: 6952.12 GH/s
dignork: TheNewDeal: so the logic goes: currently miners are reimbursed ~40$ per tx, what will happen to them when payout drops. It's actually a valid question imho.
mircea_popescu: dignork what's that $40 come from, 600ish tx per block, 25 btc per tx, 600 $ per btc ?
dignork: yep
mircea_popescu: do you see how idiotic it is to look at that in $ ?
mircea_popescu: they'll be paid some fractions of bitcent.
mircea_popescu: that's where this lets go : btc price goes up high enough for it to be worthwhile to miners. that tiny cent.
TheNewDeal: as transaction fees?
mircea_popescu: otherwise they don't sell it.
mircea_popescu: yes.
dignork: which might cost gazillions, but you can't count on it, price might rise slower than payout fall
mircea_popescu: it can't lol.
mircea_popescu: that's exactly what it's based on
mircea_popescu: what did you think drove the price, "merchant adoption"?
TheNewDeal: then why wasn't there a huge price jump during the reward halving?
TheNewDeal: was it "priced in"
mircea_popescu: something like that.
mircea_popescu: real prices don't follow fundamentals exactly. this is how you know they're real prices.
dignork: TheNewDeal: well, currently fees are very small relative to pyaouts, so it wasn;t supposed to create price jump
mircea_popescu: if you look at secular averages, there is a huge jump.
TheNewDeal: but the reward halved!
TheNewDeal: what do you mean by secular?
TheNewDeal: ;;ud secular
gribble: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=secular | Dec 24, 2004 ... secular. Intelligent; One who uses common sense and deductive reasoning to come to the conclusion that religion is a joke. I think, therefore I ...
mircea_popescu: average price over 215k blocks.
dignork: right, so fees jumped from 0.1% to 0.2 #
mircea_popescu: dignork that's not the problem. the equation roughly is, "total btc miners get for mining". how that chunk is composed dun matter much.
mircea_popescu: so per-block went from 50.00x to 25.0x
mircea_popescu: roughly, halved.
mircea_popescu: and it looks like it's gonna go 12.x, and then x as in 6-9ish
TheNewDeal: do you think miners will start rejecting transactions with fees below a certain amount?
mircea_popescu: aren't they already ?
TheNewDeal: as in, .00025 or something
TheNewDeal: currently it's .0001
mircea_popescu: well so there you go.
TheNewDeal: I'm just wondering, do yo think that is how things will go?
mircea_popescu: it's a market, unlikely it'll ever go over a buck or w/e.
mircea_popescu: obviouisly. scarce resource, expensive to make. gotta be this tal lto ride.
TheNewDeal: it would be interesting to see if there were peak hours where high fee transactions were the vast majority to get through
TheNewDeal: then off peak, back to some lower levels
mircea_popescu: maybe some timezone effect eventually.
