13:07:06 funkenstein_: following Tezos punkman? Some friends of yours ?
13:08:19 *: pankkake bought a little bit into Tezos
13:14:50 funkenstein_: I'll check it out in more detail thanks
13:15:01 pankkake: well, it got drama
13:16:18 funkenstein_: "Tezos trezor tazered"
13:16:37 pankkake: but if you subscribe to the #bitcoin-assets theory that price is driven by drama…
13:16:49 funkenstein_: drama can be good for marketing i guess
13:17:07 funkenstein_: that price meaning tezos or ?
13:17:27 pankkake: it seemed true for bitcoin
13:18:13 pankkake: since the official tezos network will require KYC to access your tokens, I bet there will be at least another fork without it
13:18:59 pankkake: for a coin that specifically wanted to avoid a fork like Ethereum Classic, it's a big failure
13:20:20 funkenstein_: yeah "papieren bitte" doesn't really have that innovative feel to it
13:21:17 funkenstein_: It's a distributed computing project iirc
13:21:22 pankkake: I'm more bummed about all the things the founders, who I really like, have gone through
13:21:34 funkenstein_: ah, sorry to hear that
13:21:38 pankkake: eh. it's like Ethereum, but less dumb
13:27:19 funkenstein_: nice mining rig: https://www.olcf.ornl.gov/for-users/system-user-guides/summit/system-overview/
13:28:24 pankkake: saw it, the big news is POWER9
13:30:35 funkenstein_: what's the latest news from la belle france?
13:30:51 funkenstein_: i saw a clip of some guy who got his arm blown off in a protest
13:31:08 pankkake: there's so many strikes at a time I'm not sure who works anymore
13:31:21 funkenstein_: lol ok so business as usual then
13:31:29 pankkake: more than usual :)
13:32:21 funkenstein_: at least there is some courage displayed
13:32:25 pankkake: the protest is hippies who occupied a space that was going to be an airport (first planned in the 60s!)
13:32:39 pankkake: it was cancelled, but the hippies did not want to get out
13:33:22 pankkake: so at some point, the police has to do something…
13:34:01 funkenstein_: put up a veggie burrito stand across the road
13:34:20 funkenstein_: get bob weir to play a show nearby
13:35:00 pankkake: and play SLAYER in the zone to evacuate
13:35:14 funkenstein_: there you go yeah :)
13:35:28 funkenstein_: how do you hide money from a hippie?
13:36:05 funkenstein_: in somewhat related news the onion has been in top form again lately https://www.theonion.com/idf-soldier-recounts-harrowing-heroic-war-story-of-kil-1826048745

13:36:43 pankkake: dark
13:36:55 funkenstein_: ... put it under the soap
13:37:01 pankkake: lol
13:41:32 funkenstein_: i got that joke from a gwar song called slaughterama
13:50:52 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-06-2018#1480769 < i think davout 'knows' him
13:50:52 assbot: Logged on 13-06-2018 13:07:06; funkenstein_: following Tezos punkman? Some friends of yours ?
13:53:02 kakobrekla: couple of weeks ago
13:53:36 davout: ohai
13:53:56 davout: don't know anyone from the tezos nonsense
13:54:29 kakobrekla: ah then it must have been someone else?
13:54:32 davout: i do know some of the idiots involved in the blockchain.io nonsense, but i fortunately have no longer any affiliation therewith
13:54:32 kakobrekla: pankkake?
13:54:59 pankkake: yes
13:55:14 kakobrekla: you know the tezos dude in person?
13:55:25 kakobrekla: davout, hows the flying license going?
13:55:39 davout: passed all my exams, got the results last week
13:56:04 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-06-2018#1480780 < nothing wrong with that, kyc might be a good way to keep murricans out tho :)

13:56:15 kakobrekla: davout, congrats!
13:56:59 pankkake: yeah, known the guy for a long time, though it was mostly through internet
13:57:16 pankkake: and the couple a few years ago
13:57:30 kakobrekla: ah ok, i knew it was someone from ba
13:58:11 pankkake: I'm pretty sure they're not doing the KYC thing willingly
13:58:22 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=13-06-2018#1480784 < it was neat to observe that development never stopped even with all that shit in the air
13:58:22 assbot: Logged on 13-06-2018 13:21:22; pankkake: I'm more bummed about all the things the founders, who I really like, have gone through
13:58:46 pankkake: well, they're really into the tech
14:02:15 kakobrekla: anyway, after briefly talking about it over dinner with adlai the other day, im skeptical now it solves the governance and fud issues
14:03:06 pankkake: it may end up with endless forks on the same network?
14:03:42 pankkake: I have yet to install ocaml and actually try it by the way. probably won't unless it's worth something
14:03:56 kakobrekla: well afaik it was pushed as a solution to endless bitcoin political drama over upgrading and who gets to 'vote' for what the protocol will be
14:04:12 kakobrekla: shall this be miners or exchanges or nonexisting nukes
14:04:45 kakobrekla: and while it might remove some of that nonsense
14:05:06 kakobrekla: it wont remove the fud
14:05:17 kakobrekla: brb coffee pot boiling :)
14:05:43 pankkake: in other news, Qt4 is being deprecated/removed from distros and my Bitcoin client still requires it
14:06:13 pankkake: it won't be the first time I will HODL because of it
14:06:55 pankkake: but for the same reason, I have to install ocaml and whatever else to run tezos
14:07:14 pankkake: but if I don't do something, I will lose to the constant inflation
14:10:34 kakobrekla: that seems to be the case yea
