04:24:23 BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: I think he does that on some bets to get the bets started at roughly correct odds and to encourage action on them.

04:24:44 TheNewDeal: roughly correct odds?!?!

04:25:04 TheNewDeal: i guess it was skyrocketing in price at the time

07:40:21 mircea_popescu: hey there.

07:41:41 arsenische: mircea_popescu: hi

07:42:17 mircea_popescu: so i see you've dropped that notion that advertisers should follow the publishers and evaluate them one by one

07:42:37 mircea_popescu: which is a move towards sanity.

07:43:24 arsenische: yes, there should be some other way to do it

07:43:34 mircea_popescu: ok. what are your plans with the thing currently ?

07:49:15 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18021 @ 0.00083899 = 15.1194 BTC [-] {2}

07:50:25 arsenische: there is much work to be done. we need to find a solution for better ad unit classification and evaluation. improve accounting and statistics for advertisers.

07:51:03 mircea_popescu: currently, what's your revenue model ? you charge advertisers a % ? how much ?

07:53:19 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8200 @ 0.00083874 = 6.8777 BTC [-] {2}

07:53:55 fluffypony: won't that lead to an environment where advertisers cherry-pick only the especially large publishers and ignore all the little ones?

07:54:29 mircea_popescu: no, because advertisers can't possibly be arsed to do that.

07:54:44 fluffypony: well that's the other thing

07:54:56 fluffypony: were I an advertiser I'd maybe do that the first time round

07:55:00 mircea_popescu: that's the main thing :p

07:55:01 fluffypony: then be too lazy afterwards

07:55:17 fluffypony: unless you made it REALLY easy with categories

07:55:57 mircea_popescu: arsenische ?

07:56:01 fluffypony: lol

07:56:57 fluffypony: Wu-Tang up front? nice

07:56:58 mircea_popescu: punkman is there such a thing as fagrap ? i mean there's everything else, some chick introduced me to her christian rap brother.

07:56:58 arsenische: Twenty percent of all monies paid by advertisers will be considered AnonymousAds fees.

07:57:13 mircea_popescu: arsenische okay, i have a proposition for you. it goes like this :

07:57:26 arsenische: (that was a quote from https://a-ads.com/terms_of_service)

07:58:05 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.

07:58:32 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.

07:59:13 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.

08:00:53 punkman: mircea_popescu: there is indeed fagrap, for instance http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soce,_the_elemental_wizard

08:01:27 mircea_popescu: punkman nuts.

08:03:22 arsenische: mircea_popescu: sorry, what is bitbet model?

08:04:12 mircea_popescu: arsenische kakobrekla did the coding and maintains the codebase, he gets a signed list of bitcoin addresses to use whenever needed. i keep the books, and generally handle the business side for it.

08:14:31 arsenische: I appreciate your suggestion to focus on the most valuable publishers and get rid of all the trash. But... won't it be difficult to maintain a binary approach (accept/reject)? Maybe we could just evaluate ad units to have some "quality" attribute, and allow advetisers to set the theshold for their campaigns.

08:14:57 mircea_popescu: arsenische nah, because your thing exists to serve the advertiser, and the advertiser needs to have an absolute he can rely on.

08:34:43 mircea_popescu: i give them one week tech support on that line.

08:35:41 bounce: static only content only, obviously. I'd set it up if aws let me sign up (which they don't--need phone and cc and then the derping really starts. what do they want now, my first born?)

08:56:34 mircea_popescu: punkman so i checked two sites randomly from those deck guys. one doesn't load at all (http://www.yayhooray.com/) the other does not show the ads (http://butdoesitfloat.com/)

08:56:48 mircea_popescu: at 9k per month for a spot in a rotation, this is NOT being picky.

08:57:52 punkman: maybe nobody has bought ads on that

08:58:53 mircea_popescu: i could see why not.

08:58:56 punkman: no, it has ads, you just need more JS

09:12:35 fluffypony: busy busy

09:12:51 BigBitz: counting all your money?

09:12:57 BigBitz: or is that just mircea_popescu ?

09:12:59 fluffypony: lol

09:13:19 mircea_popescu: im counting the money, he's cunting the blondies, we got a whole system

09:13:32 fluffypony: "cunting the blondies"

09:13:34 fluffypony: sounds about right

09:13:49 BigBitz: how do I get involved in this counting and cunting action?

09:13:50 Naphex: so localbitcoins got bit?;o

09:13:53 BigBitz: with preference to the cunting...

09:14:05 Naphex: what is it with people not securing their bootloader and datacenters

09:14:10 Naphex: just rebooting servers trolol

09:14:13 BigBitz: Naphex LBC has been bit a few times. I prevented their last big one.

09:14:21 BigBitz: Naphex fools be foolin'

09:14:39 mircea_popescu: Naphex yes. best part about it is the "everything's safe, we got wiped."

09:14:43 fluffypony: Naphex: it's also really shitty on the DC's part

09:14:49 BigBitz: the time the guy got away with 80BTC I found it and alerted jeramis before they lost a lot of their BTC.

09:14:52 BigBitz: so simple...


09:14:59 mircea_popescu: BigBitz what, you host ?

09:15:02 BigBitz: mircea_popescu no.

09:15:08 BigBitz: I secure.

09:15:34 BigBitz: DoctorBTC in -otc was talking/asking about image related malware.

09:15:36 BigBitz: I got interested...

09:15:59 BigBitz: He told me someone was stealing BTC from LBC using image based malware.

09:16:05 BingoBoingo: Oh, a-ads might do something?

09:16:14 BigBitz: they weren't.

09:16:16 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo up to arsenische atm.

09:16:39 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Interesting.

09:16:46 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.

09:16:57 BigBitz: enforced escrow.

09:17:06 BigBitz: makes sense; if you can secure your shit.

09:17:12 mircea_popescu: fuck that. it's nonsense. you can't enforce escrow.

09:17:16 BigBitz: adds some validitity to the trade.

09:17:25 BigBitz: mircea_popescu enforced in the sense it must be filled before it can be traded.

09:17:30 BigBitz: proof, at least, there is bitcoin available.

09:17:41 mircea_popescu: yes ok. but that can be done many other (better) ways

09:17:44 mircea_popescu: and isn't actually escrow

09:17:46 BigBitz: Yup.

09:17:48 BigBitz: I'm aware :)

09:17:55 mircea_popescu: so you know, they just eat a pie of risk for no upside.

09:18:08 mircea_popescu: but then again... hey. business isn't a skill we're born with.

09:18:13 BigBitz: speak to jereamis I think he's seen enough upside ;)

09:18:24 BigBitz: business acumen isn't rife in Bitcoin land.

09:18:35 mircea_popescu: as they say, the best way to sink a good team with a good idea is a bad revenue stream.

09:19:30 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.

09:19:37 cazalla: mircea_popescu: going back to KLYE discussion earlier - do you think there is a market for insex type content + bitcoin?

09:19:50 BigBitz: sure but that's as worthwhile as saying "here it is" then moving it instantly.

09:19:54 mircea_popescu: cazalla only for people who actually control a harem of willing babes.

09:20:08 BigBitz: someone hit up Dan BIlaizare.

09:20:08 punkman: did KLYE deliver the harem pic?

09:20:14 mircea_popescu: BigBitz not exactly different in effect than the pseudo-escrow.

09:20:18 mircea_popescu: punkman nah.

09:20:33 BigBitz: mircea_popescu it's not quite pseudo -- they get the coin.

09:20:40 BigBitz: IT's the release actions which have had flaws.

09:20:59 mircea_popescu: BigBitz someone explained in here why this model is very vulnerable irl.

09:21:09 mircea_popescu: "cams will see the person leave with their own item" sort of thing.

09:21:10 BigBitz: coz ppl b stuped.

09:22:28 BingoBoingo: arsenische: Oh, you run a-ads?

09:23:02 mircea_popescu: BigBitz also, kinda trivial to verify address has been meanwhile emptied, doesn't show so good on the proposed seller.

09:26:06 mircea_popescu: lol all these fucktards spending on google ads for "bitcoin" for their shitty fiat scams. "Bitcoin - Welcome Bonus, 1:10, Starting 100 ?"

09:26:13 BigBitz: lol

09:26:57 BigBitz: The world is still full of stupid people who don't know Bitcoin from sand.

09:27:54 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 ?

09:27:56 BigBitz: education isn't exactly non-existant but "MAKE DEM QUICK BUCKS"

09:28:27 BigBitz: I'm saying some people think they can have their cake and eat it. for free.

09:29:11 mircea_popescu: welll... they can definitely... eat it.

09:31:05 mircea_popescu: right. because doctor a-blow is now allowed to put his opinions on the same table.

09:47:43 Naphex: thats how they do all gov eauctions everywhere

09:47:47 Naphex: with x509 and https

09:48:40 Naphex: and ofcourse all platforms are shitty, expensive, horrible

09:48:44 BingoBoingo: Don't forget the key escrow

09:51:11 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.

09:51:29 mircea_popescu: not that this isn't how it'll end up working

09:51:55 Naphex: well it will have specs attached

09:52:08 Naphex: but it will most likely use x509 certificates, and "ssl authentication"

09:52:20 Naphex: you gotta have that certificate imported and loaded to log in

09:52:27 Naphex: so thats what your gov id will be

09:55:14 Naphex: and most likely use adobe with x509 to sign/encrypt send pdf documents

09:55:15 Naphex: :))

09:57:09 Naphex: https://www.e-licitatie.ro/Public/Common/Content.aspx?f=PublicHomePage is a famous case i think ;]

18:34:25 mircea_popescu: fluffypony good reason to hate it, incidentally.

18:35:25 benkay: mircea_popescu: your comment was along the lines of 'romania gave a bunch of money to basically anyone who showed up claiming to be a businessman and a bunch of guys blew it in advertising'

18:35:37 benkay: iirc you also made a comment about massive gold reserves in proximity

18:43:03 benkay: identity operating the mpex keys will be toast for sure.

18:43:05 mircea_popescu: in general you'd expect the rotten pt operator to withdraw everything from mpex before he actually runs.

18:43:30 danielpbarron: mircea_popescu: but would his access be void? (value of 30 BTC)

18:43:32 benkay: but mircea_popescu wouldja revoke the keys?

18:45:09 benkay: kinda the point of mpex - put down 30B, get access no questions asked.

18:45:12 danielpbarron: I don't need to know, but i'm confident MPEx could figure that one out

18:45:20 kakobrekla: but mpex cant

18:45:24 mircea_popescu: you shouldn't be confident mpex will figure anything.

18:45:43 mircea_popescu: but if you ever asked your pt op for a mpex signed stat, for instance, you should know

18:46:02 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1160 @ 0.00084176 = 0.9764 BTC [-]

18:46:36 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.

18:46:49 danielpbarron: i agree

18:46:52 mircea_popescu: well it's entirely up to you.

18:47:02 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 3140 @ 0.00084118 = 2.6413 BTC [-]

18:47:04 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

18:48:13 chetty: no way around the basics, due diligence and trust

18:48:27 mircea_popescu: well nobody forces anyone to not know / not think / etc

18:52:04 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?

18:52:27 mircea_popescu: no.

18:52:28 fluffypony: not enough information given

18:52:56 mircea_popescu: it's never safe to trust.

18:53:02 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?

18:53:10 mircea_popescu: no, it does not.

18:53:23 mircea_popescu: you can find out what it means by asking the rater what they meant.

18:53:38 mircea_popescu: you're not at liberty to arbitrarily decide what someone else's rating means.

18:53:39 danielpbarron: ok, mircea_popescu what did you mean when you rated jurov?

18:53:42 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

18:54:24 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron i meant the guy has been operating a mpex broker for about two years now, it never ran into any difficulty, and met him twice in person

18:54:56 danielpbarron: mircea_popescu: do you know which GPG key he uses to place orders on MPEx?

18:55:00 mircea_popescu: ;;rated jurov

18:55:00 chetty: danielpbarron, do you trust yourself to never eat that piece of chocolate cake you know you shouldn't have?

18:55:00 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..

18:55:12 danielpbarron: chetty: 99.99%, ya

18:55:21 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.

18:55:54 chetty: danielpbarron, that I think is the point - trust has degrees, you should be aware of them

18:56:22 mircea_popescu: dun tell me jurov ran off ?!

18:56:46 danielpbarron: lol probably not; just doing some due dilligence

18:56:53 bounce: what, like kevin bacon or something? *confused*

18:57:10 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

18:57:25 mircea_popescu: lol

18:57:32 danielpbarron: that's a good thing, right?

18:57:41 mircea_popescu: danielpbarron sure.

18:57:46 bounce: man of his word. he breaks it, you derate him.

18:57:48 danielpbarron: keeping his word

18:57:56 benkay: but that's all any of us are.

18:58:04 mircea_popescu: i thought you meant doing your dd as a good thing.

18:58:22 danielpbarron: that too, but I wasn't unsure of that one

20:05:44 jurov: in Transnistria

20:06:10 mircea_popescu: anyway, the deal would be : you go to whatever bitcoin conferences you feel like, i'll cover your entrance fee. you talk to people, explain stuff to them.

20:15:44 mircea_popescu: its name*

20:17:06 bitcoingirl: ok got it. are you saying john is already going to be at Amsterdam so you don't need another ambassador there?

20:17:27 mircea_popescu: not at all. i say he's already going, and maybe you have a drink. he's not my ambassador, because he's a boy

20:17:37 mircea_popescu: and i have a strict girls-only for ambassador roles policy.

20:17:57 bitcoingirl: sounds sexist

20:18:12 mircea_popescu: hm.

20:18:23 mircea_popescu: well he also doesn't have a forbes blog, nor was he invited to the whcd.

21:43:18 fluffypony: "Not reusing addresses protects you from quantum computing"

21:43:26 fluffypony: l.o.l. the sequel.

21:43:28 mircea_popescu: wait wut

21:43:45 mircea_popescu: does mormon underwear protect you from quantum computing ?

21:43:58 mircea_popescu: "Not reusing addresses may prevent you to be exposed from undiscovered holes in ECDSA theory"

21:44:15 mircea_popescu: wlel... reusing addresses equally may prevent you from exposure to undiscovered holes.

21:44:20 mircea_popescu: what the fuck is this cargo cult nonsense.

21:44:22 pankkake: because quantum computing can break ECDSA, but cannot break RIPEMD-160? lel

21:44:36 fluffypony: pankkake: RIPEMD4lyf

21:44:37 pankkake: anyway >quantum computing. why even talk about it

21:44:50 mircea_popescu: not reusing addresses has major privacy implications :

21:44:56 mircea_popescu: it makes it feasible for your users to be tracked

21:45:07 mircea_popescu: and it makes it possible for the entire "taint" nonsense to even tenuously exist.

21:45:19 mircea_popescu: if you care about freedom, make sure you reuse at least some addresses.

21:45:39 pankkake: though I've tried to not associate some addresses with others, I'm sure some more advanced statistical anylisis would reveal them

21:45:45 jurov: then the analysis just moves on to transaction level

21:46:14 danielpbarron: bitcoinpete: lol @ greenaddress; I had a back-and-forth with them over that exact issue: https://twitter.com/danielpbarron/status/461889144667787266

21:51:37 pankkake: bitcoinpete: seems to me the real issue is merging inputs, regardless of the addresses. changing addresses will only confuse amateur investigators

21:51:46 fluffypony: ^^

21:55:37 GAit: ok

21:55:51 fluffypony: bitcoingirl: ok done, I nominated you for best ATM design.

21:55:52 GAit: i wasn't sure this was appropriate for the channel, as long as others don't mind

21:55:53 fluffypony: (kidding)

21:56:16 bitcoinpete: GAit: this is a good conversation for everyone to see

21:56:24 mircea_popescu: fluffypony asshat :D

21:56:28 GAit: it is I agree, i generally like to read your blog

21:56:32 mircea_popescu: GAit go ahead, you're voiced, you can talk.

21:56:48 bitcoinpete: GAit: so tell us why reusing addresses is bad, in your opinion

21:56:49 bitcoingirl: I did not create an ATM

21:57:02 mircea_popescu: bitcoingirl he's just being difficult :D

21:57:36 bitcoingirl: i know

21:57:38 GAit: i think reusing addresses is bad for privacy and exposes you to potential security risk in the implementation

21:57:46 fluffypony: bitcoingirl: I'm teasing, hence the "kidding" added after

21:57:48 mircea_popescu: GAit specifically.

21:57:53 fluffypony: bitcoingirl: here - http://i.imgur.com/nizKc8A.png

21:58:15 GAit: specifically privacy or security?

21:58:29 mircea_popescu: privacy. the security i understand

21:58:35 GAit: privacy alone is quite important but extra security is not bad

21:58:36 mircea_popescu: and it's factual : ecdsa is vulnerable to bad rngs.

21:59:36 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

22:00:07 mircea_popescu: GAit what if you lie.

22:00:28 GAit: who lies?

22:00:52 mircea_popescu: well for instance, Naphex told me a funny story when we met yest. it went like this :

22:01:16 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.

22:01:45 pankkake: oh, your name is actually Boring. things are clearer now

22:01:46 GAit: check only-> watch only I presume?

22:01:55 mircea_popescu: yes

22:03:02 GAit: anyway, bitcoinpete, why would you go as far as calling it scam? good reasons or?

22:03:39 bitcoinpete: GAit scum != scam

22:03:53 GAit: sorry, lapsus

22:04:01 GAit: so why calling it scum?

22:04:37 GAit: i actually like in general your criticism and your being skeptical

22:04:38 mircea_popescu: what got called scum ? i'm behind my reading.

22:05:00 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete called GAit scum on the Twitorz

22:05:06 GAit: https://twitter.com/bitcoinpete/status/463072062056452096

22:05:07 ozbot: Twitter / bitcoinpete: You guys are fucking scum. ...

22:05:15 bitcoinpete: GAit: basically that reusing doesn't have a place in bitcoin

22:05:19 mircea_popescu: oh. GAit well people sometimes overstate points on the internet. it's called cracked.com

22:05:31 fluffypony: technically he said you're fucking scum, GAit, if scum is a pretty person you could consider that a complement

22:05:35 GAit: mircea_popescu: i was trying to find if there was something bad we could improvwe

22:05:59 mircea_popescu: GAit the problem is this : i'm pretty well convinced, and i suspect a lot of people here are similarly convinced,

22:06:02 bounce: complement or compliment?

22:06:10 GAit: bounce: compliment

22:06:13 mircea_popescu: that a campaign against reusing addresses is more a covert usg op than anything else.

22:06:14 fluffypony: bounce: good catch

22:06:18 fluffypony: I need another drink

22:06:27 mircea_popescu: now whether you're participating naively or not is up for grabs, but still.

22:07:01 GAit: mircea_popescu: you are saying we tried to get attention in the wrong way by mentioning our comptetitors reusing addresses?

22:07:07 mircea_popescu: no.

22:07:12 peterl: does reusing addresses cut down on blockchain bloat?

22:07:28 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"

22:07:38 mircea_popescu: or "pls to use whatever the gpg competitor was, i forgot" 20 years prior.

22:07:38 bitcoinpete: peterl: shouldn't

22:07:41 GAit: reusing increases bloat if i understand correctly as you have less to prune

22:07:54 mircea_popescu: reusing prevents efficient pruning.

22:08:08 GAit: yeah

22:08:28 GAit: a good point to add to the blog actually

22:08:29 GAit: thanks

22:08:31 fluffypony: peterl: not really...the current change address functionality is roughly analogous to creating fresh receive addresses every time you receive a transaction

22:08:33 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform chetty what was the gpg competitor nsa was pushing back i nthe day ?

22:09:08 bounce: clipper?

22:09:35 fluffypony: bounce: wasn't that the Microsoft Office assistant?

22:09:52 bounce: "clippy", unless you're thinking of bob the dog

22:10:00 peterl: you mean the paperclip that gave tips on how to use winblows?

22:10:02 GAit: anyway, in general if you guys have any feedback i'm all ears

22:10:08 GAit: guys and gals

22:11:53 GAit: bitcoinpete: i don't really know anyonw in bitcoin-dev that is pro address reuse

22:11:58 mircea_popescu: so ?

22:12:00 GAit: it is not reccomanded

22:12:13 mircea_popescu: are you here looking for feedback or are you here to persuade ?

22:12:16 bitcoinpete: GAit: and quantum computing isn't a thing. it's cold fusion until proven otherwise

22:12:43 bounce: anybody still use coldfusion? even though it's apparently a better php.

22:12:49 GAit: quantum computer is theoretical and little practical so far, sure, i didn't say much more to that

22:12:52 mircea_popescu: bounce seems dead.

22:13:17 mircea_popescu: GAit do you understand the part where making statements about defenses against nonspecified attacks is hacky at best ?

22:13:19 fluffypony: lol

22:13:34 mircea_popescu: i mean that sort of shit probably flies in -otc, but this chan is grown ups.

22:13:36 fluffypony: bounce: wasn't there a major CF exploit last yearish that caused issues on a bunch of sites?

22:13:38 GAit: non specified attacks?

22:13:41 mircea_popescu: yes.

22:13:56 GAit: i specified the attaccks or problems. RNG is one

22:14:02 GAit: privacy is another

22:14:03 mircea_popescu: if quantum computing, then your teeth are probably not safe. because why would they be ?

22:14:06 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.

22:14:18 GAit: well by then i imagine a lot of encryption will use quanto techinques

22:14:20 bitcoinpete: GAit: i didn't say much more to that <<quantum comps was half your security argument in the blog

22:14:32 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

22:14:43 bounce: quantum computing vs cold fusion, there's a bitbet

22:14:44 GAit: it is a widely discussed topics when talking about bitcoin and ecdsa

22:14:51 mircea_popescu: bounce one year term!

22:14:55 bounce: oh foo

22:14:58 peterl: oh, and people use cold fusion all the time, it just generates neutrons, not power

22:15:00 bounce: NO VISION

22:15:11 GAit: fluffypony: sure you can say that, but then you have little alternative to all common languages, maybe some hardware wallet

22:15:17 mircea_popescu: o.o

22:15:22 mircea_popescu: security by lack of alternative ?!

22:15:22 fluffypony: GAit: welcome to the world of S.NSA :-P

22:15:34 kakobrekla: afaik 'green address' as technical term implies reusing an address, which is funny.

22:15:39 mircea_popescu: which is also entirely an artefact of your own mind, as yo ucan make a webpage in fucking lisp ?

22:15:40 bounce: just add neutron-fueled fission, and you have a safe(-ish) reactor

22:15:41 GAit: we are already working on supporting two hw wallets

22:16:00 GAit: we are using a different way of 'greenaddressing' out of band, if you want greenaddress 2.0

22:16:29 GAit: we spoke to Jan, you know, the guy that coined the term

22:16:36 mircea_popescu: moving on to more interesting stuff. fluffypony you got a dc in your basement ?

22:18:16 fluffypony: GAit: when are you guys going to support RFC 1149?

22:18:31 fluffypony: I think it's an important piece of functionality missing from almost all implementations

22:19:04 mircea_popescu: too fucking evil.

22:35:37 fluffypony: don't think so

22:37:07 pankkake: I stumbled on some pole dancing websites, it was entertaining. I mean, it was so serious and all. Though the erotic aspect wasn't stupidly downplayed

22:37:28 mircea_popescu: pankkake belly dancing can also get quite serious

22:37:34 mircea_popescu: heck, for that matter even barbecuing

22:37:34 bounce: srsly eerotic

22:37:45 pankkake: well, I have a belly button fetish, so. :)

22:38:19 fluffypony: I dated a Greek girl who was a serious belly dancer, she ended up starting her own school

22:38:31 fluffypony: was sexy for a bit, but she was too serious about it

22:38:39 pankkake: ahah

22:38:50 fluffypony: I just wanted pre-sex wiggling, not a history lesson

23:01:39 mircea_popescu: aren't you like... months late for that ?

23:01:52 lolstate: what? a kick in the mouth? or… ?

23:02:10 fluffypony: ok analysis: Danny is a thief and was the only one who controlled all the monies. now he's run away with the monies or many spent it all on a lavish lifestyle. the company has collapsed and disbanded, and the police want to talk to Danny.

23:02:13 fluffypony: fin.

23:02:16 lolstate: Explnation for recent failure, maybe?

23:02:40 lolstate: fluffy: that is shallow

23:02:54 mircea_popescu: lolstate bring something to the table.

23:03:03 lolstate: clearly, he wasn’t a thief a priori

23:03:07 fluffypony: ok here

23:03:10 benkay: <fluffypony> ... spent it all on a lavish lifestyle. << a shame, considering...btc.

23:03:54 mircea_popescu: they'll get ignored anyway, might as well save the electrons

23:04:01 dignork: lolstate: Danny's claims about what he can do, where laughable, maintaining his own exchange rate? btc banks?

23:04:01 ThickAsThieves: catching up on logs after attending a local festival

23:04:07 ThickAsThieves: <+mircea_popescu> anyway, the deal would be : you go to whatever bitcoin conferences you feel like, i'll cover your entrance fee. you talk to people, explain stuff to them. //// mah job!

23:04:28 bounce: "save the electrons", sheesh.

23:04:33 lolstate: fluffy: yeah, saw that

23:04:37 fluffypony: lolstate: how do you get he wasn't a thief prior? has he been a personal friend you've known his whole life?

23:05:15 lolstate: fluufy: don’r be flippant. A priori, every human is honest

23:05:15 fluffypony: because evidence seems to point that he was dirty, or at the very least incompetent, and this is another in a string of failures / duck-and-run jobs

23:05:27 lolstate: yaya

23:05:46 mircea_popescu: !down lolstate

23:05:49 mircea_popescu: enough of that.

23:05:57 benkay: via...wot.

23:06:09 benkay: and even then, that's an extremely weak 'proof'.

23:06:32 bounce: that an open offer? though as a matter of style one might better sneak in bitcoin foundation gigs and possibly get thrown out in front of cameras

23:06:37 mircea_popescu: fucking noobs, gonna control the flow of conversation nao. wtf is happening in these people's heads.

23:06:41 benkay: this is what we're working towards. not that 'anyone's not a scammer until they are', but that ther are grownups in the space, and either you deal with them or they fuck off.

23:17:23 lolstate: TAT. Really what can you say about the NEo situation (sorry if I’m behind the loop)

23:17:25 ThickAsThieves: lolstate i'll sum it up like this. at this point there will be no new info from anyone worth anything on the Neo events unless he gets picked up by authorities and forced to hand over his accounts etc

23:17:48 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves were you going to ask vehehes why he's not publishing reports ?

23:17:48 nahkunt: mircea_popescu: hah, i just read about you a few minutes ago and now i see you on here...

23:17:53 ThickAsThieves: yes

23:19:48 benkay: pornstar/businesscunt would make sense

23:19:59 lolstate: TAT, that’s an interesting staement: a) Danny is a crim or… b)… ?

23:20:01 benkay: but pornstar/cryptostocks is derpage of the most pernicious variety.

23:20:14 ThickAsThieves: basically the limit is that they have to be "serious" questions and i cant end up in jail

23:20:21 bounce: you already got a list? (wiki? in public? maybe not a good idea)

23:20:22 lolstate: lol

23:20:25 nahkunt: mircea_popescu: isn't that correct? i read about you on the bitcoinwiki, it linked to a bitcointalk thread discussing it.

23:20:31 ThickAsThieves: getting banned from the conf is not off limits, but save it for last plaz

23:20:32 ThickAsThieves: plz

23:20:51 ThickAsThieves: bounce no one has made any requests yet

23:20:52 benkay: nahkunt: relies on bitcointalk for research

23:21:01 ThickAsThieves: i intended to start my own list in the next couple days

23:21:37 bounce: really should trawl their forum for things to grill them about

23:21:41 nahkunt: benkay: yes, businesscunt, i'da said that but i'm not sure how many aussies are present in this channel

23:21:45 ThickAsThieves: lolstate, i do not know if danny is a criminal, it's entirely possible he is merely 'criminally' inept

23:21:47 lolstate: TAT, have you had any contact with Danny after cutting the pass-through management role?

23:21:49 *: bounce already has a bit too much to read ATM :/

23:22:05 ThickAsThieves: lolstate no, he only talks to reddit now it seems

23:22:25 lolstate: Well, he doesn’t answer mobile, Skype or email

23:22:32 ThickAsThieves: i know

23:22:38 lolstate: Doe a runner, it seems..

23:22:45 lolstate: *Done*

23:23:01 benkay: lolstate: satisfied yet?

23:23:15 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?

23:23:27 lolstate: About what, exactly? Aren’t you in bed?

23:23:31 ThickAsThieves: lolstate just wants fuel to bring back to the perpetually cold fire at bitcointalk.org

23:23:43 lolstate: lol

23:23:51 benkay: nahkunt: it's no secret mp ran porn operations.

23:24:02 lolstate: I don’t think so, TAT.

23:24:04 benkay: pornstar though is your claim and you're going to have to substantiate that.

23:24:12 benkay: 'star' lol.

23:24:22 ThickAsThieves: porn cerberus

23:24:43 lolstate: So, TAT, I’m not here to add fuel or whatever. I’m actaully interested in disecting this mess.

23:24:55 nahkunt: benkay: it's probably false then, but this wiki page https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/MPEx links to a thread that mentions it

23:24:59 benkay: there's nothing to dissect, lolstate. it's over. everyone involved lost their money.

23:25:00 bounce: totally believable

23:25:08 lolstate: FFS

23:25:08 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves so im thinking the best approach here is, go, liveblog it, we take it from there.

23:25:12 mircea_popescu: sorta like a qual lap./

23:25:13 ThickAsThieves: lolstate i have no new info for you, sorry

23:25:28 benkay: nahkunt: let me know if you have anything that's less retarded than a retarded thread on a retarded forum.

23:25:32 ThickAsThieves: mp, okay, but i do feel some prep would be nice

23:25:40 mircea_popescu: ok, ask ?

23:25:41 lolstate: I don’r need neew info, TAT. That’s ok.

23:25:57 lolstate: But the dissection has to happen.

23:26:03 benkay: why, lolstate ?

23:26:08 benkay: what is there to dissect?

23:26:14 lolstate: Police will disect soon enough.

23:26:15 benkay: shit blew up. it's over. on to the next one.

23:26:19 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

23:26:37 lolstate: No really. If there was fraud, the cops will be interested.

23:26:38 bounce: probably gonna need someone on the headset relaying irc (teamspeak?) during panels

23:26:58 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves as far as im concenred, the "why are you not publishing reports @vehe" is all.

23:27:04 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

23:27:05 ThickAsThieves: i should probably buy an audio recorder

23:27:06 benkay: lolstate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM1RChZk1EU

23:27:10 mircea_popescu: i have no idea who the rest of the derps present are or why'd i/anyone care.

23:27:11 ThickAsThieves: but mp so many people will be there

23:27:17 ThickAsThieves: like Josh from BFL

23:27:24 mircea_popescu: so many people are @gcs in ny right now

23:27:25 mircea_popescu: so what of it

23:27:30 ThickAsThieves: the Overstock guy

23:27:32 ThickAsThieves: etc

23:27:40 mircea_popescu: the overstock guy is a year away from sense

23:27:48 mircea_popescu: i may be the lord of all evil but i can't compress time.

23:27:49 lolstate: TAT, are you still in securities? Aren’t you jaded now?

23:27:55 benkay: nahkunt: "Merchant adoption is the single biggest driver in encouraging the spread of a cryptocurrency." << sounds like a ploy to hype a shitcoin

23:27:57 mircea_popescu: except with willing women.

23:28:10 ThickAsThieves: lolstate i've been jaded since i was like 8 years old

23:28:24 fluffypony: nahkunt: I'm off to bed, but hit me up tomorrow if you have any VertPay questions

23:28:27 mircea_popescu: nahkunt you ever read the canonical statement to the contrary ?

23:28:45 nahkunt: mircea_popescu: nope, link it?

23:28:48 fluffypony: benkay: paybee got rolled into vertpay

23:29:01 ThickAsThieves: lolstate i am in no way involved with bitcoin securities at this time, well, other than owning some personally

23:29:16 lolstate: Ok

23:29:43 benkay: for shame mah nigga

23:29:47 lolstate: MP’s attitude is naive. When the Feds come, it wil be because there are new crypto-carreers to be bulit.

23:29:50 fluffypony: hah hah

23:29:59 fluffypony: benkay: don't worry, we'll branch into ATC soon :-P

23:30:02 ThickAsThieves: mp's plan actually exists

23:30:07 nahkunt: what is ATC?

23:30:17 benkay: http://therealaltcoin.org

23:30:18 fluffypony: nahkunt: http://www.therealaltcoin.org

23:30:42 fluffypony: it's the only hipster altcoin

23:30:45 mircea_popescu: %diff

23:30:46 atcbot: [ATC Diff] Current Diff: 455357.13 Est. Next Diff: 140052.98 in 1630 blocks (#32256) Est. % Change: -69.24

23:30:48 ThickAsThieves: i scooped mp's legal plan a while back

23:30:48 mircea_popescu: that.

23:30:54 lolstate: TAT, do you still have a current LMB share-holder/transfer-to-Havelock list?

23:31:17 lolstate: Not trying to wind you up, TAT, just fact-finding!

23:31:23 nahkunt: fluffypony: serious question: will you consider other altcoins than vert some day? i realise that's pipedream talk but i'm curious

23:31:25 ThickAsThieves: to what end?

23:31:42 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 8100 @ 0.00084131 = 6.8146 BTC [+]

23:31:56 mircea_popescu: wait wait. fluffypony what exactly is your relation to vertcon or w/e and wtf is it ?

23:31:59 fluffypony: nahkunt: definitely, that's the plan, but it's important for us to have a definitive starting point

23:32:23 nahkunt: yes i agree and i think it's a wise decision to start with just vert

23:32:29 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

23:32:37 mircea_popescu: wtf is a vertcoin

23:32:41 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

23:32:55 benkay: another shitcoin.

23:33:00 mircea_popescu: scrypt ?

23:33:01 lolstate: Ok, TAT, that’s reasonable.

23:33:02 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: an altcoin, selling point is that it uses scrypt-n so it's asic-resistant

23:33:06 mircea_popescu: ah.

23:33:11 mircea_popescu: oh oh that thing

23:33:14 mircea_popescu: shit man that's obscure

23:33:18 fluffypony: the n-factor is determined by block height or something

23:33:21 mircea_popescu: yes yes

23:33:33 mircea_popescu: so what's your slice, like... bored one day ?

23:33:43 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: it made sense to do that than try do PayBee

23:33:51 mircea_popescu: aha

23:34:48 mircea_popescu: is paybee even functional yet ?

23:35:27 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

23:35:31 fluffypony: so everyone wins

23:36:07 mircea_popescu: https://github.com/paybee/electrum-doge/blob/master/AUTHORS o look, he's even i nthere.

23:37:21 fluffypony: mircea_popescu: nobody ever asked!

23:37:59 fluffypony: we put together a small board that consists of myself plus a few others that were already involved in VertPay

23:38:18 mircea_popescu: no but i mean what do you intend for it to do.

23:38:43 fluffypony: Vertcoin payment gateway, but dev it as a white-labelled PayBee

23:52:03 mircea_popescu: i mean i get it, hackathon is that make teams and do a project thing

23:52:11 mircea_popescu: but a start-up challenge can easily be identical neh ?

23:52:39 ThickAsThieves: i dunno, i assume no coding is oinvolved in the latter

23:54:46 mircea_popescu: so like a marketathon ?
