00:17:01 peterl: is it considered better manners to set otc ratings in the channel or via pm with gribble?

00:17:53 mircea_popescu: hasn't gotten to the point of actually bothering yet.

00:18:00 mircea_popescu: i suspect people like to keep an eye on it

00:18:17 mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo looking good.

00:18:36 BingoBoingo: At least for a while bringing up the assbot - target path is probably productive to see if people wanting voice can already !up themselves

00:18:40 BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Thanks

00:18:59 benkay: peterl: we're all making it up as we go

00:19:18 benkay: the dynamics of upping is interesting to watch as well

00:23:28 mircea_popescu: so reading the log... is nubbins` like this chan's cialis or what.

00:23:42 bitcoinpete: ;;later tell artifexd your nudge was just what i needed to finally get that done. thanks!

00:23:42 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:24:28 BingoBoingo: nubbins` is a lot of things

00:24:43 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 0.52 BTC [+]

00:25:02 mircea_popescu: Duffer1: sorry man that all was before my time, not sure what all happened << mnw figured he'd be a smartass, bet everyone pirate will deliver (after default). 10k btc, which he obviously lost, which he then reneged on (pretending he's "delivering" by simply writing 10k BTC in a foirum post) and got banned.

00:25:04 mircea_popescu: then got unbanned

00:25:07 mircea_popescu: then got banned again

00:25:30 mircea_popescu: then piles of drama, it gets circular.

00:25:40 Azelphur: I remember that

00:25:44 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15249 @ 0.00095914 = 14.6259 BTC [-] {2}

00:26:03 mircea_popescu: congratulations, you're old enough :)

00:26:26 Azelphur: \o/

00:26:52 mircea_popescu: rithm: which is broken because you have no way to idetify the person you communicate with on that forum << stop slandering https etc.

00:27:15 Azelphur: that was pretty funny "This bet is serious business, if you place the bet and loose then don't pay, you will be marked as a scammer and banned"

00:27:24 Azelphur: "Oh shit I lost... NOPE IT WAS ALL A BIG JOKE HAHAHA"

00:27:40 mircea_popescu: myeah.

00:30:12 Azelphur: I remember he was writer at bitcoin magazine too, iirc he got fired over it

00:32:16 BingoBoingo: Bitcoin Magazine has its own lulzy history

00:33:26 bitcoinpete: ;;rate artifexd 1 nudger

00:33:27 gribble: Rating entry successful. Your rating for user artifexd has changed from 1 to 1.

00:33:55 mircea_popescu: Azelphur nah, he was fired when the bitpay crew screwed the original owner out of his shares and put that romanian kid in

00:34:01 mircea_popescu: whatever his name is. who maybe left meanwhile or w/e

00:34:06 Azelphur: I see

00:34:29 mircea_popescu: or maybe he left in protest or maybe he was fired right before that ? shit's starting to get foggy

00:34:45 Azelphur: god alone knows

00:35:00 Azelphur: he's not a nice fellow, tldr.

00:36:10 mircea_popescu: i dunno he's not nice. he's definitely one of the guys that got raped in the ass by their failure to take bitcoin serious enough.

00:36:20 mircea_popescu: where enough is a value roughly in excess of hard infinity.

00:36:23 mircea_popescu: aleph three.

00:37:25 mircea_popescu: ;;later tell TestingUnoDosTre eh what robbed, thing closed at like 11, you bet 11:20 or what

00:37:25 gribble: The operation succeeded.

00:39:26 BingoBoingo: The hazard of late BitBets, on price especially is when the thing hits verus where it sticks can be... messy, and the difference here is in the house's favor

00:40:23 mircea_popescu: i have no idea why people insist to try and use a knowledge advantage. fucking thing has about 700 bells and whistles pointing out you'll get hurt in all likeliness

00:40:26 mircea_popescu: yet people can't resist.

00:40:39 mircea_popescu: i guess it's all a testament to the SEC's historical success in controlling insider trading.

00:40:59 mircea_popescu: hear ye of little competence : i am and i have been doing a shitload better than you ever did, to the degree the differential is culture-shocking people.

00:41:53 peterl: one more reason to bet early

00:41:56 BingoBoingo: Preach it. I mean why do people keep getting this "free winning" idea when BET is in the name

00:42:00 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 3073 @ 0.00011911 = 0.366 BTC [+] {4}

00:42:16 mircea_popescu: i guess it's just irresistible and that's how it'll stay.

00:43:16 mircea_popescu: o look i missed the polish inflation discussion.

00:43:19 mircea_popescu: maybe next time.

00:44:16 BingoBoingo: The de/in-flation discussions always have a next time

00:45:08 benkay: http://theumlaut.com/2014/04/16/a-coup-not-an-exit/

00:45:36 benkay: the light begins to dawn...

00:46:19 mircea_popescu: "This view is charmingly na?ve. "

00:46:39 mircea_popescu: assholes not in here daring to claim things are "charmingly naive". irony crits.

00:47:05 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13000 @ 0.00095719 = 12.4435 BTC [-]

00:47:06 benkay: perhaps they read logs?

00:47:11 benkay: perhaps they have someone reading logs?

00:47:15 mircea_popescu: still presumptuous.

00:47:37 mircea_popescu: peterl can you post that again in something that's not a hairball of js ? like a pastebin say. or a wp blog or something.

00:48:11 peterl: yeah, sure, give me a minute

00:48:29 benkay: php > js

00:49:10 bitcoinpete: benkay: eli doesn't get the scarcity angle. few casual observers do, particularly amid the mt gox this and that noise

00:49:54 mircea_popescu: benkay im trying to be user friendly shush you

00:49:59 benkay: i don't really get the mining arguments. but yes, containerization.

00:50:13 benkay: paucity of new coins, bitcoinpete ?

00:50:52 bitcoinpete: basically

00:51:10 bitcoinpete: "Bitcoin for now exists at the pleasure of governments" << this is just priceless

00:52:26 mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete everyone wants to think that the earth sucked before he showed up to fix it.

00:53:14 bitcoinpete: mircea_popescu: and that times, they are a changing. so fast that history is useless

01:01:21 bitcoinpete: the nobel comes to bitcoin

01:01:22 mircea_popescu: "Best ATM Design" ?

01:01:33 mircea_popescu: what's this troop smoking lmao

01:01:42 mircea_popescu: "Most Impactful Charity"

01:01:55 mircea_popescu: anyone wants to bet the bitpay sister gets that ? what was her name

01:02:02 bitcoinpete: mp, you'd better win best journalist

01:02:06 mircea_popescu: Each of the winners will receive 1 BTC

01:02:12 mircea_popescu: aghagaga o spare me sally.

01:02:29 bitcoinpete: and influential investor lol

01:02:50 BingoBoingo: I think MP takes most influential investor

01:02:58 mircea_popescu: i should probably make a pie throwing contest, give 10 btc to the best thrown pie to the face of these losers.

01:03:06 bitcoinpete: and legal expert, and bitcoin champion, and on an on

01:03:18 mircea_popescu: that;s about their total pool.

01:03:33 bitcoinpete: except it was funny/sad how few people at the bitcoin expo in toronto who'd even heard of you or mpex

01:04:08 bitcoinpete: there should be EmPee Awards

01:04:12 peterl: they have a list of people they already picked to honor (themselves), and they had to come up with a category for everybody?

01:04:17 mircea_popescu: how many people at bitcoin toronto heard of niederauer ?

01:04:37 bitcoinpete: fair enough

01:06:25 mircea_popescu: lol why am i looking at some japanese chick with her panties on

01:07:38 mircea_popescu: srsly, i am not impresst.

01:08:30 bitcoinpete: EmPee Award categories: best haircut, funniest log line, herpiest derp, best troll…

01:08:52 bitcoinpete: ya, she looks like an amputee

01:10:07 ozbot: Serious Stuff

01:10:41 bitcoinpete: donating bitcoin to charity will "not only will it help a worthy charitable cause, it will also contribute to the future success of Bitcoin:" <<obviously lol

01:11:28 mircea_popescu: this is a stupid idea, because in general charity is powered by tax deductions.

01:11:37 mircea_popescu: this makes donations the absolute last thing bitcoin will do.

01:12:20 mircea_popescu: but try and talk it to the fucktards who have some shit impacted in their head which they misrepresent as an idea, and then try to use everything they encounter on the road as shit-amplifyer, instead of using it as a shit removing device.

01:13:28 BingoBoingo: !b 3

01:13:28 assbot: Last 3 lines bashed and pending review. (http://dpaste.com/1782548/plain/)

01:13:31 bitcoinpete: everything is used to amplify brain damage here

01:13:51 bitcoinpete: it's socially encouraged

01:14:03 peterl: well, according to IRS rules, couldn't you claim a bitcoin donation as charitable donation for tax purposes?

01:14:15 mircea_popescu: peterl try and do so.

01:14:26 peterl: since bitcoins are assets like cars and shit?

01:14:36 mircea_popescu: you can claim anything you want, including that you have 84 minor children.

01:14:38 mircea_popescu: then you get audited.

01:14:42 mircea_popescu: then you get to argue it in court.

01:14:44 mircea_popescu: then you win.

01:14:47 mircea_popescu: or die, whichever comes first.

01:15:19 mircea_popescu: people with actual tax accountants who get actual advice (ie, the people in a position to make meaningful donations) don't do stupid shit because that;'s what happened to be in front of their eyes that hour.

01:15:19 peterl: as long as the charity gave you a receipt, I don't see why there would be any hassle?

01:15:46 mircea_popescu: because the business of the irs is to hassle the margin.

01:16:10 mircea_popescu: that's what a taxman does, in all tiumes and places. it's the fundamental conservative mechanism of a society.

01:48:40 TestingUnoDosTre: mircea_popescu - about this bet http://bitbet.us/bet/800/bitcoin-price-above-525-before-may/ it was the other way around. I had bet at + received 1 confirmation (and bet posted to bitbet) at 23:20. The bitstamp price crossed over at 23:29

01:49:04 mircea_popescu: TestingUnoDosTre looks like 23:00 on that graph

01:51:39 TestingUnoDosTre: Let me check the difference between bitcoincharts time and GMT

01:53:44 TestingUnoDosTre: I had about 10 minutes before the crossover, I was watching it at the bar

01:55:25 TestingUnoDosTre: Here's what I have on bitcoincharts, loaded 1 minute data 2014-04-15 23:29:00 524.51 527 521.54 527 163.8 86233.43 526.46

01:59:19 mircea_popescu: i think you're arguing the wrong tack here.

01:59:30 mircea_popescu: nobody is going to go into the level of detail you need for your case.

01:59:44 mircea_popescu: bitbet is not a good venue to be doing this sorts of "oh but i bet x seconds before it ticked".

02:00:03 mircea_popescu: bet a day early and get refunded, then you got something.

02:02:41 TestingUnoDosTre: I'll back down if I must. I agree with the gist of what you're saying, but I played by the rules and it's somewhat easy to verify that I was in "on time"

02:04:34 TestingUnoDosTre: There's no reason the price couldn't have swung in the opposite direction

02:04:44 mircea_popescu: TestingUnoDosTre well, the life of a late bettor is hard. if you get in, you get in. however, if you don't you don't, and it's the mod that makes the call.

02:05:42 TestingUnoDosTre: I feel like I most definitely did get in though. But enough of this dicussion

02:05:53 blackwhite: hola peeps

02:06:08 mircea_popescu: heya

02:06:42 BingoBoingo: TestingUnoDosTre: Remember that BitBet has worse fates than a refund for the late.

02:07:36 TestingUnoDosTre: I do understand, and that's the risk I was taking. I did bet before the event occured though...

02:18:17 BCB: BingoBoingo, still waiting for pirateat40 to go to jail!

02:18:17 BingoBoingo: BCB: I've seen you around forever now, but I don't think we've had occasion to interact.

02:18:42 BingoBoingo: BCB: I imagine he will find worse than jail

02:19:25 BCB: BingoBoingo, I think he already has. WIfe left him, all his assets have been seized, He's back living in his mother's house

02:19:42 BCB: and he's being sued by the SEC

02:19:51 BCB: Life doesn't get much worse then that

02:20:05 BingoBoingo: BCB: There are far worse things than that. He is going to see the future he could have been a part of, but was exiled from in its infancy

02:20:28 BingoBoingo: Killing him would have been kinder than that

02:20:56 mircea_popescu: wow that's some high drama aproach right there.

02:21:06 mircea_popescu: tho tbh, i think the kid's exactly smart enough for that to smart.

02:21:09 joecool: BCB: prison rape is in the future

02:22:07 mircea_popescu: this obsession with prison rape srsly. it;s like 30 cases per 100k inmates

02:22:09 BingoBoingo: joecool: Sphincters heal, serious regret is forever

02:22:10 BCB: joecool, if he goes to prison it will be some low sec location. Not much prison rape there. Lots of checkers and shuffleboard

02:22:12 mircea_popescu: in the us. in canada it's like 3x that.

02:22:59 BCB: BingoBoingo, I don't think he ever saw a future in bitcoin. He just saw it as a way to make a quick buck. He was too smart for his own good.

02:23:00 joecool: mircea_popescu: reported cases? canadians are probably just more shameless

02:23:26 BingoBoingo: BCB: It doesn't matter if he saw it then. He is doomed to see it the rest of his life.

02:23:40 peterl: mircea_popescu: looks like you tear apart my story just as intended. thanks.

02:23:53 BingoBoingo: And there is no such thing as "too smart for their own good"

02:23:53 mircea_popescu: joecool i dunno why someone would fail to report rape in prison.

09:16:19 kakobrekla: nah is no biggie, i like being alone really.

09:16:24 mircea_popescu: if all else fails, ask the reception desk for the massage salon and ask the girls there where they keep the girlfriends.

09:16:38 kakobrekla: lol

09:16:48 *: mircea_popescu was being serious that time.

09:23:43 fluffypony: tks

09:23:46 jurov: i'm going too

09:23:54 kakobrekla: fluffypony in the bar, to have drinks.

09:24:36 jurov: 1. drink 2. work 3. drink moar ... profit!

09:32:10 fluffypony: very cool

09:32:25 fluffypony: maybe next year the wife and I will go visit the in-laws in Germany and then come through for that

09:33:07 Naphex: pff

09:33:15 Naphex: hey mircea_popescu meeting is going on in timisoara?

09:33:58 kakobrekla: yes

09:34:18 *: fluffypony contemplates a Romanian holiday

09:35:14 Naphex: TM, is a 2 hour drive

09:35:21 Naphex: from here / Oradea

09:36:04 fluffypony: Naphex: what parts of Romania do you recommend seeing if we had to holiday there?

09:36:26 Naphex: fluffypony: tbh no idea, i spend most my holidays going somewhere else :))

09:36:30 fluffypony: lol

09:36:37 fluffypony: come to South Africa on holiday

09:36:39 fluffypony: it's beautiful here

09:37:12 Naphex: hehe i bet :)

09:37:44 Naphex: there'se probably lots of stuff to visit, but i can't recommend much :) my last holiday in romania was when i was 13-14 or something

09:37:47 Naphex: like that

09:38:04 kakobrekla: romania reminds me of bosnia tbh.

09:38:15 kakobrekla: mp is gonna be mad when he reads this but its is what it is.

09:38:44 kakobrekla: all thats missing is bullet holes in the buildings

09:39:02 Naphex: well, atleast we got potholes

09:39:03 Naphex: to make it up

09:39:43 kakobrekla: a few years back there were still holes from grenades in sarajevo

09:39:45 kakobrekla: on the road.

09:40:00 kakobrekla: prolly fixed by now

10:03:37 kakobrekla: http://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/news/cryptsy-in-disarray/2014/04/17

10:03:58 kakobrekla: another one bites the dust

10:04:36 fluffypony: kakobrekla: I think they're just on a dogecoin fork and are reloading the blockchain from scratch

10:05:00 kakobrekla: dogecoin eh

10:05:07 kakobrekla: so in the end its more trouble than its worth

10:05:20 kakobrekla: AMAZING JOB COMMUNITY

10:05:25 fluffypony: they've been on forks so often

10:05:47 fluffypony: when you've got an scrypt coin with the entire network hashrate of < 20mh/s it's a joke to end up on a fork

10:07:01 kakobrekla: dogecoin is 20mh ?

10:07:11 kakobrekla: how much gpus is that

10:07:34 kakobrekla: (i have no experience with scrypt)

10:07:48 fluffypony: no, it's not, but other coins are

10:07:52 fluffypony: dogecoin is reasonably large atm

10:08:02 kakobrekla: can we estimate gpu count?

10:08:13 fluffypony: "networkhashps" : 84463584340,

10:08:38 kakobrekla: how much scrypt hash does 500mhahs sha gpu make

10:08:51 kakobrekla: ?

10:09:05 fluffypony: ok so the network hash is about 84gh/s atm

10:09:13 fluffypony: and a 7950 hashes at ~700kh/s

10:09:19 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 154 @ 0.00069772 = 0.1074 BTC [-] {2}

10:09:51 kakobrekla: so are you saying theres 100k gpus mining this bullshit coin

10:10:19 fluffypony: yep

10:10:26 fluffypony: at least 120k

10:10:27 kakobrekla: zomg

10:10:36 fluffypony: (the 7950 is quite performant, there are people with older/slower cards)

10:11:38 kakobrekla: terrible

10:12:22 fluffypony: average card cost is like $200?

10:12:38 fluffypony: $24 000 000

10:12:41 kakobrekla: and burns 200w

10:13:21 HeySteve: hmm yeah mentioned cryptsy failing this morning

10:13:27 HeySteve: be interesting if it falls over

10:18:49 davout: kakobrekla: so you're already in timisoara ?

10:18:57 kakobrekla: since yesterday evening

10:20:22 kakobrekla: anyway , cant sit anymore, going for a walk

10:20:23 kakobrekla: later.

10:21:25 davout: hf!

10:21:42 davout: argh

10:21:50 davout: gonna rain this week end apparently

10:27:42 HeySteve: so the final ruling is expected in June huh?

10:27:50 HeySteve: I will let you guys know if it's accepted

10:29:42 HeySteve: oh wrong window :/

10:37:24 fluffypony: davout: is Instawallet indefinitely dead or are you still peripherally working on a resurrection?

10:37:47 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 6150 @ 0.00095288 = 5.8602 BTC [-]

10:38:24 davout: fluffypony: it's dead. i may at some point start working back on it, but it definitely won't be in the same form

10:39:03 davout: fluffypony: if it comes back it'll be some sort of lightweight version of blockchain.info, the URL would be the actual private key for the wallet

10:39:18 fluffypony: yeah I like the way blockchain handles things from that perspective

10:39:29 davout: but i can think of quite a few reasons why that would be a bad idea anyway

10:39:38 fluffypony: well it's a tough space

10:39:46 fluffypony: because anyone "in the know" won't use a webwallet

10:39:52 fluffypony: but there are tons of people who want to

10:39:54 davout: first reason: if the URL is your key, the server will hear about it

10:40:37 fluffypony: davout: BIP38 the key?

10:40:43 davout: i'm not really sure i want to promote web-based wallets anymore

10:40:43 fluffypony: on the client side, I mean

10:41:00 davout: yeah, that would be a solution

13:44:26 mrstickball: What supports S.MPOE's valuation? It looks like annual dividend is 1%, and there is no volume outside of S.MPOE itself

13:51:46 TestingUnoDosTre: I've always wondered that myself. Perhaps the ability to grow?

13:51:56 TestingUnoDosTre: Pretty unique venue

13:53:39 mrstickball: That is a possibility, but again.. the dividends don't bear that out

13:53:48 mrstickball: 1% APY since last year

13:53:53 TestingUnoDosTre: Methinks the best chance to gain a profit was purchasing at IPO

13:54:58 TestingUnoDosTre: Past years dividends don't reflect much on say the next 2 to 3 years though...

13:55:08 mrstickball: certainly, but why so much volume?

13:55:32 mrstickball: you're looking at >100 BTC volume in the past day

13:55:55 TestingUnoDosTre: It's probably the the only stock worth trading on MPOE

13:56:06 mrstickball: could be

13:56:15 mrstickball: why have they never listed other companies?

13:56:25 mrstickball: It seems like such an odd model compared to Havelock or Cryptostocks

13:56:43 TestingUnoDosTre: Both of those are outright fucked

13:57:15 mrstickball: Cryptostocks is, certainly

13:57:22 mrstickball: but my point was both try to list new companies

13:57:29 TestingUnoDosTre: Go to bitbet, search Havelock, and see how many people think it will last through november

13:57:48 pankkake: it has listed other companies

14:01:13 pankkake: that seems to be the case

14:02:47 TestingUnoDosTre: I do think there was quite a bit of discontent with the satoshi dice closing

14:03:16 TestingUnoDosTre: But in all honesty, I haven't invested a satoshi in any of these businesses

14:03:46 mrstickball: right

14:03:54 mrstickball: I was just curious because the volume is so.... strange

14:04:10 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 11 @ 0.053 = 0.583 BTC [-]

14:04:14 mrstickball: its easily the largest stock/entity of Bitcoin securities, but seems not to warrant it in my view

14:04:15 fluffypony: oh didn't realise, that article I linked to is by asciilifeform

14:04:24 mrstickball: but maybe those that invest in it have access to something I do not

14:04:28 mrstickball: hmm

14:04:31 mrstickball: interesting

14:04:36 fluffypony: who now works with MP on S.NSA

14:04:43 mrstickball: right

14:04:46 mrstickball: which is interesting

14:05:32 TestingUnoDosTre: Ascii is a chick?

14:06:12 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 6 @ 0.053 = 0.318 BTC [-]

14:06:30 fluffypony: no

14:06:49 TestingUnoDosTre: Also, would like to see how the volume changed if he opened entry fee to something like 5 btc

14:07:14 TestingUnoDosTre: Oh that's just a quote

14:07:14 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: you'd have a lot more nervous (dangerous) traders

14:07:25 fluffypony: imho

14:07:55 TestingUnoDosTre: But they would moat likely have a lot less capital to toss around

14:08:02 jurov: what's the problem with using broker?

14:08:04 fluffypony: besides, you can use CoinBr instead of paying the 30 BTC

14:08:18 fluffypony: https://coinbr.com/about

14:08:22 fluffypony: "Account management fee : 0.019 BTC monthly."

14:08:28 fluffypony: "Buying/Selling/Option exercise fee : 0.5% from traded amount in BTC"

14:08:32 fluffypony: "BTC withdrawals and asset transfers : 0.02 BTC per."

14:08:49 mrstickball: I assume the 30 BTC is to provide some sort of barrier to prove sophistication

14:08:54 fluffypony: R100/month isn't bad for brokerage services

14:10:12 mrstickball: I gotta pull out my gribble OTC keys from my old machine to get back in to the WOT

14:10:41 fluffypony: mrstickball: yes, if you've got the money and sense to invest and play with tens or hundreds of thousands of USD equivalent, the 30 BTC makes sure you know that it's serious

14:11:00 TestingUnoDosTre: And its also counterparty risk

14:12:10 TestingUnoDosTre: It's slightly ridiculous though. Last year, it cost approx 1/5 USD equivalent to join. Where's the added value?

14:12:32 *: fluffypony shrugs

14:12:56 fluffypony: it'll possibly be revisited at some point, but only MP can answer that

14:13:22 mrstickball: oh well

14:13:32 mrstickball: so what other exchanges are out there currently?

14:13:43 mrstickball: MPex, Havelock, Cryptostocks, Picostocks..?

14:18:51 fluffypony: mrstickball: I've been thinking the same thing

14:18:55 TestingUnoDosTre: Personally, I would find a small group of people to invest initially before ipo ing on a public exchange

14:19:06 mrstickball: I already have a fair amount of backing

14:19:12 mrstickball: I want to make it larger.. a fair bit larger

14:19:20 fluffypony: I wonder how the Lending section on Bitcointalk would react to a LoC listing ala DeathAndTaxes?

14:19:31 TestingUnoDosTre: Well are you running and generating cash flow yet?

14:19:41 mrstickball: $500,000 last year

14:19:46 mrstickball: $100,000/mo currently

14:26:13 mrstickball: We do a lot of mining business on EBay, Amazon, through the eStore

14:26:24 mrstickball: I also snagged a >$50,000 order from a major US computer retailer

14:26:47 mrstickball: so we're looking to work with them to put Bitcoin mining hardware in most states. I know our webstore needs a site revision (working on that currently)

14:30:57 TestingUnoDosTre: This maybe a stupid question, but can those miners return a positive roi any more?

14:31:01 mrstickball: yes?

14:31:08 mrstickball: TestingUnoDosTre: which miners?

14:31:14 mrstickball: Grids? GPUs?

14:31:20 rithm: why anyone would still be stupid enough to buy mining contracts is beyond me

14:31:46 mrstickball: its a good racket for the people selling the contracts

14:31:54 rithm: yes. yes i know.

14:31:59 mrstickball: now, something can be said for BetaRigs contracts to IPOMiner

14:32:00 Duffer1: mrstickball are you not going to list on ciphertrade?

14:32:03 mrstickball: you can make a killing there if it works right

14:32:23 mrstickball: Duffer1: we likely are. However, it may be awhile before we can list due to some regulatory questions

14:32:33 Duffer1: i see

14:32:33 mrstickball: so I am simply shopping around and to educate myself further on options

14:32:45 fluffypony: Duffer1: we're also supposed to be an initial listing on CipherTrade

14:32:50 fluffypony: but I admit to a bit of cold feet

14:32:54 mrstickball: we're still committed to CT, but its always good to look around

14:32:59 mrstickball: CT will be great once its up

14:33:10 Duffer1: if it can get up

14:33:11 fluffypony: yeah I'm just nervous about the changes higher up

14:33:17 fluffypony: I had an agreement with Kate

14:33:25 mrstickball: Si will honor the agreement

14:33:25 fluffypony: and that agreement looks to have fallen away

14:33:27 mrstickball: and I can vouch for you

14:33:27 Duffer1: ciphermine shareholders are U-N-H-A-P-P-Y

14:33:36 fluffypony: mrstickball: I've been chatting to him about it

14:33:45 mrstickball: unfortunately, Kate quasi-screwed everyone over

14:33:48 mrstickball: due to health

14:33:54 fluffypony: he's a nice fellow, I'm just letting sleeping dogs lie atm till I figure out my next move

14:33:57 mrstickball: all interactions I've had with Si are beyond fantastic

14:34:06 fluffypony: mrstickball: yeah I know it's not Kate's fault

14:34:11 mrstickball: if Si had been running CM from the get-go or CT from the get-go, there wouldn't be issues

14:34:15 *: fluffypony nods

14:34:16 fluffypony: I agree

14:34:24 Apocalyptic: Si ?

14:34:27 Duffer1: imo it is Kate's fault, or at least Kate's diseases fault

14:34:54 mrstickball: pretty much

14:35:04 mrstickball: Kate / lack of communication when everything went FUBAR

14:35:05 fluffypony: Duffer1: well there's a lot to be said for a succession plan

14:35:18 mrstickball: they are buying more rigs. I gotta deliver 40 Grids to them shortly w/ the voltage mods

14:35:20 Duffer1: ya would have been nice if there was one

14:35:21 mrstickball: so they do have working capital

14:35:32 mrstickball: Duffer1: I believe they about have that done now

14:38:44 fluffypony: I have no idea, spoke to her on the phone a few times and she seemed quite nice

14:39:40 mrstickball: I wish I could tell you

14:39:57 mrstickball: for awhile, I thought Kate was Jon W's alter-ego or something, because they both disappeared at the same time

14:40:09 Duffer1: Jon W = Deprived?

14:41:47 Duffer1: oh cool

14:53:42 mrstickball: Duffer1: yeah

14:53:48 mrstickball: sorry about the delayed response

14:54:02 Duffer1: no worries

14:54:06 mrstickball: Jon W and Kate disappeared nearly the same day as each other. Seemed odd

14:54:21 Duffer1: you're right, everyone suspects they're the same person

14:54:28 mrstickball: and I started thinking that Kate's last name was Wood, so maybe Jon W = Jon Wood

14:54:51 mrstickball: but all the digging I did for a Jon W turned up a securities guy that stepped in front of a bus and killed himself due to.......get this.........securities fraud

14:55:13 Duffer1: oh snap

14:55:16 Duffer1: how long ago?

14:56:43 mrstickball: I don't think there was any relation, AFAIK

15:03:28 artifexd: mrstickball: Are the "in stock" statements on your site accurate?

15:03:58 mrstickball: they should be. Once in awhile there may be an item that has to be revised

15:04:04 mrstickball: due to selling out on Amazon, for example

15:04:09 mrstickball: which item are you looking at?

15:04:28 artifexd: The ice-fury usb is the one I had up when I asked

15:04:33 mrstickball: ah

15:04:37 mrstickball: yeah, we have about 60 in

15:07:33 Duffer1: unless someone took over the Deprived account the day of that John Ws demise then it's not the same person

15:08:01 fluffypony: maybe John K == Deprived

15:08:20 mrstickball: that'd also be interesting

15:08:50 mrstickball: Duffer1: right. I just thought it was unfathomably odd that there's a John W that killed himself due to fraud like that in a similar window of time

15:08:56 mrstickball: certainly a strange coincidence.

15:09:05 Duffer1: oh i agree

15:09:23 TestingUnoDosTre: Ok so that ice fury is for bitcoin right

15:09:51 artifexd: I imagine it would work with any sha256 coin.

15:10:01 fluffypony: mrstickball: well having spoken to Kate on the phone I can confirm she is female and British

15:10:20 Duffer1: female sounding hehe

15:10:23 fluffypony: hah hah

15:10:25 fluffypony: yes

15:10:34 fluffypony: a very effeminate Briton

15:10:53 TestingUnoDosTre: I've calculated 25 month to break even at current diff with no electricity costs

15:11:35 TestingUnoDosTre: For ice fury

15:11:40 TestingUnoDosTre: That's what I'm saying

15:11:51 mrstickball: ahh

15:11:54 TestingUnoDosTre: Isn't the inventory worthless?

15:12:03 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: I think the point is to mine, pay electricity out of pocket, and HODL until BTC has risen sufficiently to profit from it

15:12:11 mrstickball: Just about. The problem is that the factory sent them to me to liquidate them

15:12:14 artifexd: I am not aware of a single asic currently available that will ever make its money back.

15:12:19 mrstickball: I may drop the price a bunch and just throw 'em out

15:12:40 mrstickball: artifexd: they never will if you're looking at paying cash for them vs. buying BTC

15:12:41 fluffypony: you'd be surprised at the number of old BFL ASICs still selling on eBay

15:12:49 mrstickball: but I'd say the catch is if difficulty slows down, you'd be good

15:12:50 TestingUnoDosTre: I know that

15:12:52 artifexd: mrstickball: exactly

15:12:54 mrstickball: mining is a hedge against huge diff increases

15:13:05 TestingUnoDosTre: Opposite

15:13:17 mrstickball: if you weren't seeing 20% diff increases every 10-12 days... it'd be very easy to ROI. But the ASIC arms race is only now starting to slow

15:13:27 TestingUnoDosTre: Mining gets racked against huge diff increase

15:14:03 artifexd: AM almost has gen 3 ready so the difficulty will probably start spiking again in a month or two.

15:14:07 fluffypony: yeah

15:14:40 artifexd: mircea_popescu`: I was too slow

15:14:49 mrstickball: 110nm -> 55nm is huge

15:14:50 nubbins`: artifexd: see hostname ;(

15:14:57 mrstickball: 55nm -> 28nm is also huge

15:15:02 fluffypony: yep

15:15:10 mircea_popescu`: o hay

15:15:15 mrstickball: and if you look, daily diff changes are a lot lower

15:15:24 mrstickball: yeah. Its still a bad proposition

15:17:38 TestingUnoDosTre: Daily diff change?

15:18:22 mrstickball: yeah

15:18:23 TestingUnoDosTre: So do you have to pay for the miners, or do you just get commission?

15:18:25 mrstickball: let me find the chart

15:18:33 mrstickball: on this batch of Ice furies, its commission

15:18:46 mrstickball: but that is literally the only line of products I've done commission on

15:18:54 mrstickball: rest I own outright including the 500 Grids in front of me

15:22:01 fluffypony: nubbins`: easily, or crazy-documentation-required?

15:22:19 nubbins`: easily, but an unexpected speed bump

15:26:03 benkay: nubbins`: you're trading with those criminals?

15:26:14 nubbins`: well, apparently not ;D

15:26:47 mrstickball: http://bitmine.ch/growth.png

15:26:47 nubbins`: needed to turn some btc into CAD sorta quickly

15:26:51 mrstickball: that was the chart I was looking at

15:28:59 TestingUnoDosTre: Kinda retarded here, but how does a network hashrate increase change my ability to find a block at constant diff? Does it drop linearly with hashrate increase?

15:29:50 mrstickball: it doesn't affect it until the difficulty change

15:30:04 mrstickball: otherwise, it drops with the difficulty increase

15:31:21 TestingUnoDosTre: So how is mining a hedge against diff increase?

15:32:08 mrstickball: its a hedge against the belief it increases

15:32:19 mrstickball: e.g. if it doesn't increase, you mine more, and make money back faster

15:32:54 mrstickball: for example.. if you spent $2,000 on a mining rig in April 2013 and $2000 on LTC, and did a buy & hold until, say... December... the rig would have returned far more

15:33:18 mrstickball: because difficulty did not increase between June and October

15:33:24 TestingUnoDosTre: Let's talk about btc here

15:33:34 TestingUnoDosTre: Where difficulty increases

15:33:51 mrstickball: right

15:33:54 TestingUnoDosTre: Because it's quite the opposite

15:35:25 mrstickball: again, the issue is with the declining diff increases

15:35:36 mrstickball: as per the chart I showed you, there's been a steady reduction since the peak in September

15:35:39 mrstickball: from 3% daily to 1% daily

15:35:40 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 18200 @ 0.00097346 = 17.717 BTC [+]

15:35:44 TestingUnoDosTre: If I buy a miner, expecting to roi in 180 days at constant diff, even with electricity. Costs factored in, I'm fucked

15:36:36 TestingUnoDosTre: But that's a decline on daily diff increases, not diff increases

15:36:53 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre

15:36:56 TestingUnoDosTre: Just means the diff increase are tapering off

15:36:58 fluffypony: how are you calculating ROI?

15:37:13 TestingUnoDosTre: Let's say you have USD today

15:37:32 TestingUnoDosTre: Question is- purchase btc, or purchase rig

15:37:43 benkay: btc

15:37:45 fluffypony: btc

15:37:46 fluffypony: always

15:37:52 TestingUnoDosTre: No shit

15:38:00 TestingUnoDosTre: So who is buying his rigs?

15:38:02 benkay: unless you're buying in bulk and getting a great deal net 30 on delivery mining's a scam.

15:39:14 fluffypony: benkay: the other exception I've seen is with GPU rigs mining profitable altcoins, as theres always a new pump-and-dump "ASIC-resistant" scamcoin being touted. drive them hard for 2-3 years or until unprofitable, and then part out the equipment to gamers

15:39:20 fluffypony: you can't do that with ASICs

15:39:28 nubbins`: benkay +1

15:39:34 TestingUnoDosTre: The guy has a business selling rigs that will never roi have a remote chance of roi. You're never going to build a returning customer base

15:39:42 benkay: if you're selling mining chips to gamers you're a scammer too.

15:40:01 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: you understand that not every miner wants profitability, right?

15:40:02 nubbins`: if that's your exit strategy, you should probably reconsider as well

15:40:32 nubbins`: "for sale: year-old gfx card, partially melted"

15:40:52 TestingUnoDosTre: Please explain fluff.

15:40:59 fluffypony: nubbins`: "just like new except very dusty and with a few blown caps, balance of warranty (1 month left)"

15:41:16 TestingUnoDosTre: And don't use the whole securing the network argument

15:41:17 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: Dogecoin has this "join the Doge Defense Force" thing where people mine with their cards when they're not playing games or whatever to strengthen the network

15:41:33 nubbins`: blown caps are where it's at

15:41:45 fluffypony: you'd be surprised at how altruistic the individual miner is

15:41:45 TestingUnoDosTre: I don't want to hear about shitcoins

15:42:03 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: ok so then take the Jalapeno as an example

15:42:10 TestingUnoDosTre: Mkay

15:42:23 fluffypony: it was marketed as a coffee cup warmer

15:42:27 fluffypony: final product not so much

15:42:28 benkay: fluffypony re doge defense forces if one must manipulate psychology to deliver hashpower one's doing it entirely wrong.

15:42:45 fluffypony: but there are tons of people in the mining community that are casual miner

15:42:47 fluffypony: *miners

15:43:03 fluffypony: they bought a Jalapeno, mined for a bit, flipped it on eBay or turned it off when it was no longer covering electricity

15:43:10 benkay: they don't matter or count.

15:43:21 benkay: the only ones who do are the large farms.

15:43:22 fluffypony: some of them went from that to a USB Block Erupter

15:43:24 TestingUnoDosTre: Casual miners aka people who casually flush money or btc down toilet?

15:43:28 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: exactly

15:43:39 fluffypony: benkay: contextually we're talking about buyahash's market

15:45:05 benkay: o wait this isn't the exchange thinger?

15:45:05 fluffypony: we could argue that any ASIC manufacturer is a questionable business venture :-P

15:45:09 fluffypony: benkay: no

15:45:15 fluffypony: benkay: buyahash.com

15:45:40 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: yeah, it's people who hear about it and decide to spend a few hundred Dollars *max* on playing around with mining

15:46:04 benkay: who cares?

15:46:04 fluffypony: or a few thousand if they're particularly confident in it

15:46:16 fluffypony: benkay: TestingUnoDosTre does :)

15:46:17 TestingUnoDosTre: What about knc. Coulnt their product have actually worked out initially?

15:46:19 benkay: it's like that guy next to the important place with a cart full of cheaply made crap

15:46:34 benkay: "buy a souvenier! take home a bit of the sphinx!"

15:46:56 fluffypony: benkay: sure, and some people want to take home a bit of the sphinx, even if it's all an illusion

15:47:06 fluffypony: doesn't make the vendor questionable per se

15:47:07 TestingUnoDosTre: Except with that you might still have a positive memory of your trips to Egypt

15:47:42 benkay: except that the implication (never stated) of these asic vendors is that you might make some money with it.

15:48:42 fluffypony: I think the bottom line is that it's fallatious to fault a company that sees an opportunity to sell shovels in a gold rush

15:49:00 benkay: fellatious

15:49:07 TestingUnoDosTre: Well there's also an advantage to receiving bitcoin outside of an" established" exchange. I think this is somewhat true

15:49:14 fluffypony: mmmm fellatio

15:49:21 TestingUnoDosTre: Lol

15:49:33 fluffypony: TestingUnoDosTre: true, but I doubt 95% of them even consider that

15:50:05 TestingUnoDosTre: It's totally analingus to invest in a company that behaves in such a manner

15:50:24 fluffypony: mmm anal lingus

15:50:41 fluffypony: no wonder everyone complains about mpex's porn chat, look at this conversation!

15:50:50 TestingUnoDosTre: Wish I could have found a way to swap that for analogous, but not that quick on my feet

16:16:29 TestingUnoDosTre: I though it was more like 10

16:16:34 mrstickball: I assumed 10

16:17:09 TestingUnoDosTre: Also, I thought you had to register as a money transmitter in US

16:17:51 mrstickball: ahhh

16:18:00 mrstickball: as the ATM owner/operator?

16:18:03 benkay: there are a million reasons to avoid the atm's

16:18:14 mrstickball: benkay: it'd be interesting

16:18:31 mrstickball: the reason I ask is due to my contract with a major US PC retailer that wants to sell bitcoin/litecoin products

16:18:42 mrstickball: my thought is to do a mining kiosk / ATM in each store

16:29:35 benkay: that's a good basis point for your analysis.

16:29:38 pankkake: it disconnects and never comes back, and it happens in the irc lib, and I never got around figuring why

16:30:43 benkay: classic internet

16:30:45 benkay: don't read thing

16:30:47 fluffypony: I honestly haven't really looked at Ethereum

16:30:48 TestingUnoDosTre: Read a few paragraphs of that trash. Comments contained more resemblance of intelligence

16:30:48 benkay: just mock

16:31:00 fluffypony: but I agree with benkay

16:31:20 mrstickball: benkay: how often do you read Krugman?

16:31:28 benkay: mrstickball: let me know when you get to the part where krugman reviews a book someone else wrote.

16:31:42 fluffypony: you can run a business and burn all your creditors without complying with any rule ever and with nobody ever knowing your identity...that doesn't seem like a healthy starting point for a system

16:31:43 mrstickball: How much Krugman do you read?

16:31:49 thestringpuller: !ticker m s.mpoe

16:31:49 assbot: [MPEX:S.MPOE] 1D: 0.00095214 / 0.00096064 / 0.00097418 (585642 shares, 562.59 BTC), 7D: 0.00095065 / 0.00096309 / 0.00097649 (3444684 shares, 3,317.56 BTC), 30D: 0.00079813 / 0.00093513 / 0.00101 (22227685 shares, 20,785.78 BTC)

16:32:29 TestingUnoDosTre: That's the whole thing. Its a book review

16:32:49 fluffypony: so we should scroll straight to the comments and write "le bitcoin army is here!!!111one" ?

16:33:23 benkay: i guess in lieu of actual discussion that'll have to do.

16:33:25 TestingUnoDosTre: I used to read Krugman frequently like two or three years ago

16:33:57 TestingUnoDosTre: Have you read his thing on bitcoin?

16:33:58 benkay: cracks me up that y'all would rather harp on krugman than derp through his review of a book written by someone else.

16:34:13 mrstickball: he was praising it for its call to tax the rich more

16:34:14 fluffypony: benkay: don't have time to read it now, added it to my read later list

16:34:24 cgcardona_: DACs don't seem like a pipedream of geeks to me.

16:34:28 pankkake: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af35/me_guns/krugman_cat.jpg

16:34:36 mrstickball: he's reviewing a book that takes a very dim view of economics which is typical for Keynesians

16:34:49 benkay: mrstickball: get past the krugman slant. let me know what you think about the book under review.

16:34:56 TestingUnoDosTre: I read it until I realized its an emotional appeal to socialism

16:35:18 mrstickball: the book is arguing a point without context

16:35:29 mrstickball: its arguing about economic inequality without looking at a lot of underlying factors

16:35:40 TestingUnoDosTre: I'll read the book. Love formatting my own opinion

16:35:45 mrstickball: you can't compare inequality from the 10s and 20s to today simply by looking at inequality x income

16:35:53 nubbins`: what format do you use for your opinions?

16:36:00 fluffypony: nubbins`: markdown

16:36:07 nubbins`: not bad

16:36:40 benkay: amateur

16:36:47 benkay: latex is for professional opinions.

16:36:57 benkay: mrstickball: what factors does it ignore?

16:37:08 mrstickball: regulatory atmosphere, primarily

16:37:34 nubbins`: but what's LaTeX for? ;(

16:37:46 mrstickball: he cites deregulation as a potential cause of inequality, yet the reality is the EXACT OPPOSITE

16:38:00 mrstickball: we have more regulations on our economy (and tax code) than at any point in history

16:38:00 benkay: that's quite a claim.

16:38:09 mrstickball: benkay: I can substantiate it easily

16:38:14 mrstickball: you want the US tax code by pages?

16:38:24 mrstickball: or would you prefer my compliance costs?

16:38:25 benkay: sounds a lot like correlation

16:38:28 benkay: and not a whit like causation

16:39:03 mrstickball: its a partial cause

16:39:16 mrstickball: when the average factory has $15,000 in compliance costs in the US, what do you think they do?

16:39:50 mrstickball: *$15,000 per person

16:39:57 benkay: how does that imply causation between higher regulatory burden and inequality?

16:40:22 nubbins`: ^ the attacker went to the same school as me for 9 years :0

16:40:39 mrstickball: regulatory burden ensures that larger businesses / those with access to more capital can reduce their burden and utilize economies of scale to leverage better positions against the small business and poor

16:40:57 TestingUnoDosTre: Here's the comment I liked" Second, they look at it from the US/European point of view. If you look at it from a global level, there is a lot less global inequality now than in the 50s and 60s. The income of Americans then was over 100 times greater than the Chinese. Now it is merely 6 times greater. 1,000,000,000 people have been lifted out of poverty into the middle class in the last 15 years. That is more than

16:41:16 benkay: ah the ol' regulation lays most heavily on those unable to escape it

16:41:24 benkay: i for one don't care about inequality

16:41:32 mrstickball: benkay: What business do you run, and tell me about your compliance department

16:41:33 benkay: seems like a thing largely out of the control of anyone

16:41:55 benkay: software

16:42:03 benkay: comply on taxes and employment

16:42:07 mrstickball: how much do you pay for HR and accounting?

16:42:17 benkay: none right now, sometime soon that'll change.

16:42:22 mrstickball: how many employees?

16:42:32 benkay: well accounting i do pay for

16:42:36 benkay: some thousands per year

16:42:46 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9800 @ 0.00097303 = 9.5357 BTC [-]

16:42:50 benkay: can't say as that's any of your business, mrstickball .

16:43:02 mrstickball: benkay: it is since we're discussing regulatory environments

16:43:25 benkay: respond in two ways

16:43:29 benkay: as if i have 1 employee

16:43:32 benkay: and as if i have 20

16:43:33 mrstickball: if you're doing software, I'd ask how many people you have on 1099's vs. W4

16:43:43 mrstickball: since in software, you can contract more

16:44:19 mrstickball: because I co-own an analyst firm that contracts 100% of its employees. I also run a business that is looking to hire via W4. Different regulatory environment, as I have to pay a lot more in compliance for unemployment, workers comp, SS, ect

16:44:25 mrstickball: all adds to my cost of doing business

16:44:31 mrstickball: same thing with hardware/IP acquisitions

16:44:46 benkay: okay hey so a question

16:44:48 mrstickball: much easier to 1099 someone on a retail design via a 3rd party than it is to look at hiring an in-house artist

16:45:10 benkay: you don't go to sleep quaking in your boots about getting audited on your 1099's?

16:45:19 mrstickball: generally, no

16:45:39 TestingUnoDosTre: How much is workers comp in a software environment?

16:56:53 mrstickball: benkay: why is that? ... I'd argue because its so much easier and trouble-free as an employer

16:57:05 mrstickball: I can write someone a check and 1099-em at the end of year... No real compliance or paperwork

16:57:25 mrstickball: I wish all hiring was that easy. But its not, and that's why I think regulation/compliance is such a huge cogwheel in the American economy.

16:57:39 mrstickball: Because its so much easier to get someone in China to do work for me than it would be here at a factory

16:57:56 mrstickball: (and my wife is building a candle factory over the next few months, so I'm having to help her learn all the compliance steps)

16:58:12 benkay: banging atoms together as a business in the states is just horrid.

17:09:43 mrstickball: ah

17:09:57 benkay: fixed bid's another story, though.

17:10:35 benkay: you could get a lot done for 10k.

17:11:16 mrstickball: could

17:11:21 mrstickball: 10k for BuyAHash?

17:11:24 mrstickball: or 10k for FADE?

17:11:26 benkay: i'm sure you understand the tradeoffs.

17:11:33 benkay: 10k buys you a heck of a lot of css.

18:28:52 numerisTrade: Copa del Rey, soccer

18:30:41 BingoBoingo: TestingUnoDosTre: We tried an unescrowed bet, it worked

18:30:56 TestingUnoDosTre: Oooh

18:31:15 numerisTrade: well, yeah, that would be more precise

18:31:38 TestingUnoDosTre: Just curious, did bitbet offer bets without timeweight in the past?

18:32:20 TestingUnoDosTre: Numeristrade, you answered my question

18:32:24 jurov: no afaik it was same from beginning

18:32:57 jurov: but you can make bet without weight by setting end weight to 100000

18:33:03 BingoBoingo: Yeah

18:34:07 numerisTrade: the content of the bet was of secondary importance, the most important part was it being unescrowed

18:34:37 TestingUnoDosTre: Other thing I wanted to do was to lower the initial timeweight in attempt to make it jump discretely

18:34:46 TestingUnoDosTre: Sadly, not an option

18:34:58 jurov: why?

18:35:37 TestingUnoDosTre: My thoughts were this. Enter a European call option, a la bitcoin trade at or above 600 on June 1

18:36:10 TestingUnoDosTre: Allow for like one or two weeks of betting and close the bet early

18:36:38 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.0669675 = 0.1339 BTC [+]

18:36:39 TestingUnoDosTre: Try and sell timeweight shares as price jumps up and down

18:37:25 TestingUnoDosTre: Thought it would be neat if the timeweight started at like 7, then ticked down one each day

18:39:53 TestingUnoDosTre: Discrete isn't really needed though

18:40:40 TestingUnoDosTre: Could accomplish what I was saying with the continuous

18:56:06 numerisTrade: TestingUnoDosTre, what would be the purpose of such bet construction?

18:56:32 fluffypony: davout: I'll fathom that they had logins etc. scraped when they were Heartbleed vulnerable, and the attackers waited till now to use them

18:57:10 davout: fluffypony: i doubt hb has been actively exploited in the wild, can be wrong tho

18:57:13 TestingUnoDosTre: I would initially gage an option, bet on it, then sell off some of it to lock in profit

18:57:19 fluffypony: davout: XSS then?

18:57:32 davout: also ppl seem to report changing passwords after hb and still being impacted

18:57:46 TestingUnoDosTre: Surprise buttsexed. How so?

18:57:58 davout: fluffypony: xss/csrf would be easy to detect by someone with a simple tool such as firebug

19:05:08 davout: is fucking gay

19:05:11 numerisTrade: TestingUnoDosTre, as I understand it, the decreasing timeweight would punish your lock-in profits if it's linear to 0 in a one week frame

19:06:17 pankkake: during the 2000s internet bubble I loved the French website "vakooler" (fancy way of writing "going to sink")

19:06:28 fluffypony: davout: maybe it's worth doing a UDRP for the domain, it meets the "bad faith" element by pointing to a competing service?

19:06:35 TestingUnoDosTre: No no because I would bet immediately, the betting would close, and say one week later the price may drop, and I could sell shares of No for more than at beginning

19:07:32 TestingUnoDosTre: The decreasing timeweight would mess with everyone else but me that tried to value the option

19:08:09 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [ALC] 425 @ 0.14 = 59.5 BTC

19:10:34 fluffypony: davout: it was registered 4 months before bitcoin-central, so you'd probably have to go the trademark route + bad faith or demonstrate that you announced the name somewhere and the act of registering the domain was cybersquatting+bad faith use

19:11:33 davout: i really don't care that much, i just think that doing it is gay

19:16:24 jurov: i'm not desperate, coinbr is fine

19:16:26 numerisTrade: TestingUnoDosTre, the selling shares of No is selling these outside BitBet service?

19:17:03 numerisTrade: jurov, coinbr is already an established brand, besides it's better than coinbroker

19:19:32 TestingUnoDosTre: Yes. Draw up a short got contract. Say you're buying 10000 timeweight representing .1btc for. 13 or something along those lines

20:56:47 kakobrekla: im not sure

20:56:58 mircea_popescu: scam.

20:57:05 kakobrekla: the logic does not seem apparent

20:57:54 kakobrekla: O_O

20:58:07 kakobrekla: now you are just making stuff up

20:58:35 kakobrekla: why da fuck would +5 limit negative to -5

20:59:51 cgcardona_: my point being if you're limited by what you can rate based on it being a l2 connection

21:05:32 mircea_popescu: fluffypony heh. nothing like a little narrative namedropping to establish forum "cred".

21:05:38 fluffypony: the rest of the "IPO" is basically "send us 100 BTC and we'll pay dividends. we promise."

21:20:05 mircea_popescu: cgcardona_ i can see what the cause was, but my problem is with the mental process.
