asciilifeform: had a thought. usg's btc price dampener strategy has no clear endgame - the 'ethereum' thing will carry on while the usd printing press runs, because it stands to reason they are running both the sell and -buy- ends of the machine. 'arse-mouth system.'
asciilifeform: the usd printer doesn't even have to engage unless an outsider shows up to purchase a cheap coin.
mircea_popescu: kinda the idea. "make it impossible to sell btc to third parties, continue to pretend like the price is low, gold v2.0"
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: anybody other than us discussing this publicly ?
mircea_popescu: anybody else is either too stupid or too poor to be concerned with such matters.
asciilifeform: but how does usg ensure that no third party outbid it ?
asciilifeform: as i understand, they are simply baking on painting the tape 'dark enough' with arse-mouth lowball bids.
mircea_popescu: ensure too strong a word. but suppose you don't let terrorists run their own exchanges, nor deposit to yours.
mircea_popescu: well... no demand then right ?
asciilifeform: *banking on

mircea_popescu: nah different coinbase.

mircea_popescu: honestly thinking about it, the insanity of the crime levels in the us (both private and state-run) are what prevent more immigration.
mircea_popescu: not the ministration of blue collar anything, or any other electorate

mircea_popescu: just, your average sa guy that feels insecure in ba could simply not live in the us. at all. like you can't live in berlin cca 1948.
mircea_popescu: that's why it's mostly mexicans , not the proximity, but the only country with similar crime levels.

mircea_popescu: yeah well here's an idea : costa rica is like 2 mn total.

BingoBoingo: Well, I'm immediately more concerned about "minimalist travel the other direction.
mircea_popescu: yeah, did you end up in jail or what was recently ?
BingoBoingo: Not yet.
BingoBoingo: Lawyer has yet to follow up on me about what the next hearing of whatever is.
BingoBoingo: Still pushing for some sort of University job here for long enough to get an escape plug of cash at least
BingoBoingo: This is disconcerting given how optimistic the lawyer's last conversation was.
BingoBoingo: In the worst case though if this thing goes to trial... I can probably take at least two or three law licenses down with me.

kakobrekla: also blockr needs bitcoind to run, toshi does not
kakobrekla: in retrospect its a good thing.

mircea_popescu: nuts dude.
asciilifeform: i can understand actually being stuck. this - no.
BingoBoingo: Also.. need a bit more time to practice the Spanish. And then there's the almost sick hope I might win the misdemeanor case nao.

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: this is why - airplane, suitcase.
BingoBoingo: ATM plan roughly looks like car, run out of gas, walk, border, airplane, suitcase

BingoBoingo: My fucking alabaster drive-thru lawyer has to be in practice probably the biggest nigger I have had the misfortune of trusting in my life.
danielpbarron doesn't have a passport either
danielpbarron: which reminds me of a conversation I had a while back, in which I speculated that someone who is sufficiently wealthy does not need a passport
Namworld: Oh, yeah... I see trilema article. I know of that law comics.
BingoBoingo: With respect to the issue of local corruption though... I might be up to doing a month in jail if it means I get 3-4 lawyers in the prosecutors office sanctioned. The Federal stuff though would make me walk.

mircea_popescu: you cna prolly just sell it.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: That would require Title paperwork and all that. best to just leave the keys in with a sweater I bled all over half a mile from the bridge.
mircea_popescu: no it wouldn't lol.
mircea_popescu: sell it to a chop shop or w/e
BingoBoingo: An option maybe. I also headed to Argentina fear bringing in insufficient dollars to blue up.
mircea_popescu: you look burly enough, you can prolly get a job as an arbolito.
BingoBoingo: I'm all beard though an little muscle.

mike_c: last 48 hours have been busiest two days for bitbet this month.. right after btcalpha launched the analyzer. coincidence?
TheNewDeal: was wondering that as well
TheNewDeal: lots of bets I had made that lied inactive for a long time were bet on after that was released
mike_c: well i am rooting for bitbet. tired of building tools that are obsolete a few months after i ship them.
TheNewDeal: would love to see them develop a separate set of betting system for price bets and difficulty
mike_c: what would you change?
TheNewDeal: the weight
mike_c: you can make bets with different weight. i used to make sports bets that ended at 90,000
TheNewDeal: well if you look at the bet I just pasted, the diff 20% increase one
TheNewDeal: it would be nice if the weight dropped to near zero almost every 2016 blocks
TheNewDeal: In the event that this bet turns out yes early, it will get murdered by yes
TheNewDeal: because 2000 blocks into each change, it's very easy to answer the question "will the current change be 20% or less?"
assbot: Bet 877 Analysis - Difficulty over 21Bn by Summer's end 2014 - Btc Alpha
mike_c: note that higher weight had significantly higher ROI
BingoBoingo: I mean this diff thing is hitting Moore's law. Future 20% diffs require... big foundries...
TheNewDeal: theres no timestamps displayed?
mike_c: there's weight :)
mike_c: i could put timestamps, seemed redundant.
TheNewDeal: but how many days difference was there between say weight 99994 and weight 56297
TheNewDeal: it's important
mike_c: about 5 weeks
TheNewDeal: especially when one considers their return/day or return annualized
mike_c: well, if you are focused on return/day you should only bet on things that are going to close early.
TheNewDeal: well, risk has a part to play in it
TheNewDeal: for instance, I once bet on a "price will drop below 400 before X"
TheNewDeal: price dropped to exactly 400
TheNewDeal: no lower
mike_c: it's a tough way to make an easy living
TheNewDeal: but with difficulty you get much more data to look at
TheNewDeal: if I wait 2010 blocks into a 2016 block change, my certainty becomes much much greater
TheNewDeal: the risk becomes almost nada
mike_c: so.. do that?
decimation: asciilifeform: re: green hills os << I've seen this before. I'm somewhat dubious about the proposition "we r ultrasecure but we use von neumann cpuuuu!"
mircea_popescu: <mike_c> last 48 hours have been busiest two days for bitbet this month.. right after btcalpha launched the analyzer. coincidence? << :)
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal in principle one could propose and seed bets for each retarget
TheNewDeal: I've done the short term targets, and they're both risky and fun
TheNewDeal: but it becomes very difficult to pick a day in which to end the weighting at
mircea_popescu: mike_c actually about 20ish btc a day is the secular average for bitbet. 50 or so over 3 days is about avg neh ?
mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal you can specify them by block height and have a reasonable but outside resolve date
TheNewDeal: I'm not saying it's impossible, but specifying the date is about as difficult as weighting the probabilty of the event occuring in the first place
assbot: Still Face Experiment: Dr. Edward Tronick - YouTube
dub: can you nix any bets that refer to a season as being related to a time of teh year
nubbins`: like the bet resolves as yes if the first day of spring falls on x?

TheNewDeal: all you have to do is look at resolution / closing date
TheNewDeal: I don't care what 3rd quarter for S&P500 is either. All I care about is bet closing and even resolution date (not necessarily when bitbet resolves it)
