06:37:55 kakobrekla: hehe
06:38:10 kakobrekla: they did their part anyway

07:06:31 kakobrekla: Did you do most of the development?
07:06:31 kakobrekla: At the beginning, yes. I did all the development as we didn’t have the money to hire people at that time. Funny, last week I had a dinner with our CTO and we pointed out that the core trading engine is still 90% intact, just as I developed it in 2011. I guess that is a sign of something done right.
07:06:32 kakobrekla: --
07:06:41 kakobrekla: meanwhile their two strings and a can regularly breaks down when btc moves
07:06:50 kakobrekla: the pretense of these idiots is beyond measure

12:28:15 wizardofcoins: ^^
12:31:37 kakobrekla: af.
12:42:03 wizardofcoins: kako do you know if I make a buy order with 5x leverage on kraken at €12000 and the margin call price is at 80%. €12000 x 0,8 = €9600. if the price hits €15000 it still needs to go down to around €9600 for the auto margin call to be made by kraken right?
12:42:59 kakobrekla: i wouldnt know, never used kraken
12:48:20 wizardofcoins: recommend other exchange?
12:49:40 kakobrekla: maybe bitmex, im not affiliated with them in any way.

14:55:28 pankkake: bitcoin price makes gribble crash
14:57:00 kakobrekla: excess butts
14:59:33 funkenstein_: did bitmex become an exchange finally?
14:59:51 kakobrekla: what does that mean
15:00:01 kakobrekla: they dont do fiat afaik
15:00:10 kakobrekla: they arent stupid
15:00:11 funkenstein_: can you exchange one thing for another
15:00:24 kakobrekla: unless they did a recent acquisition of stupidity
15:00:43 funkenstein_: seems to be a popular acquisition as always :)
15:01:19 funkenstein_: i've got plenty if you would like some
15:04:07 kakobrekla: im full at ty
15:04:10 kakobrekla: atm*
15:04:48 funkenstein_: well it's gonna be selling like hotcakes now that we have btc for 16k usd
15:05:35 kakobrekla: that cant last. in either direction.
15:06:14 funkenstein_: what is your prediction?
15:06:38 funkenstein_: won't stay at this price long seems a fair bet :)
15:06:42 kakobrekla: up or down
15:06:45 kakobrekla: yes :)
15:07:04 funkenstein_: https://www.bankingsupervision.europa.eu/ecb/legal/pdf/en_con_2017_47_f_sign.pdf <-- I was trying to verify this deposit protection story but I gave up
15:08:05 kakobrekla: it doesnt seem far fetched neh?
15:12:08 funkenstein_: seems believable but then again i'm not sure what deposit protection really was to begin with
15:13:13 funkenstein_: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=05-12-2017#1478856 <-- I only worked on one bird which was launched from Kwajalein atol in a Pegasus rocket

15:14:35 asciilifeform: funkenstein_: on the iron or the finance ?
15:15:13 funkenstein_: the magnesium
15:15:24 funkenstein_: i was gonna say the iron but then i thought that might imply the computer
15:15:31 asciilifeform: how many sets of the item were made ?
15:15:44 funkenstein_: well there was officially a flight spare
15:16:00 funkenstein_: would be insane not to build one
15:16:16 asciilifeform: in ru world, last i knew typically 3 were made, 2 working units and a mass-and-dimensions-dummy
15:16:48 funkenstein_: it's a good idea
15:17:44 funkenstein_: almost all development costs go to engineering so making an extra isn't a big expense
15:17:59 funkenstein_: and even if it launches it often is helpful to have a copy on the ground for debugging
15:21:36 punkman: next rekt-time is gonna be fun
