03:32:07 Rozal: Why does blockchain shown unknown miners
03:33:19 funkenstein_: bc.info stats? they don't know who the miners of those blocks are, no ID tag placed in the block
03:35:25 funkenstein_: i'm always impressed punkman seems to have a finger on the pulse of new school
03:37:31 funkenstein_: more in motivational speakers for conspiracy theorists: http://themindunleashed.com/2017/07/former-mainstream-media-journalist-blows-whistle-911-fukushima.html
03:48:26 funkenstein_: "Yes, the process of creating and distributing money is the process of deciding what humanity does in the future. This process should be a transparently run public utility not a private monopoly in the hands of gangsters. We are fighting to free humanity from a horrific regime of babylonian debt slavery and we are winning."
03:52:01 punkman: "You’ve stated that the Japanese royal family showed you evidence that 9/11 was an inside job and that this was sort of your big “wake up call.”"
03:54:03 punkman: oh he's big in japan
03:58:17 funkenstein_: well his japanese books are not from large publishers
04:02:12 punkman: I hadn't heard any fukushima conspiracies til now
04:02:23 punkman: nuke at seabed, guess not bad
04:06:34 punkman: "Being stabbed with a poison needle by Mutsuaki Okubo, a North Korean agent."
04:06:59 punkman: he's totally not copying random things from the internet right
04:07:35 funkenstein_: i think that story predates the recent north korean official thing
04:08:37 funkenstein_: nice i had missed the rich chigga. "dat $tick"
04:09:30 punkman: "Idc what you say that turtle neck is hard as fuck." sometimes I love youtube comments
05:05:19 punkman: thick sauce
05:06:31 punkman: The White Dragon Society is an Asian secret society with which Benjamin Fulford is strongly affiliated. - Any White Dragon Society website is an agency trap. Tell people to stay away, we only recruit face to face. We trust nothing digital.
05:13:16 punkman: surprised King Pei hasn't come out with a cryptocoin yet
05:29:03 funkenstein_: i'm holding out for the vatican's ICO
05:29:29 punkman: "A police officer told the Post Courier that locals should stick to their gardens rather than be constantly conned by Musingku."
05:30:02 funkenstein_: hehe good advice
05:30:05 funkenstein_: hmm a la Ver that would make Noah Musingku "the jesus coin jesus"
05:30:09 punkman: "He maintains an armed security force and has remained for years secluded in a remote jungle stronghold in a no-go zone beyond the control of Bougainville's autonomous government and police force."
05:30:28 punkman: /me takes off hat
05:56:44 punkman: ok last bit of spam: "If you are doing business with another member of The Internet Catalog Club and you lose money in the process you can have those loses restored. You can’t lose when you do business with members of The Internet Catalog Club as long as you are also a member. Go to www.zcash.org and click on news you can use and then click on 7070 to find out how."
10:30:47 punkman: bitcash pump still going eh
10:30:52 punkman: 0.2 btc
10:47:29 adlai: so, for a while i ran scalpl on various fiat/btc interfaces, to mediocre results. then i ran it on s.mpoe and was amazed by the relatively consistent profit - wow, this must be such an inefficient market!
10:48:13 adlai: now i'm rounding out a week on bitmex's "perpetual swap", and (with a massive caveat that a week means nothing) it makes that s.mpoe look like a constructive proof of the EMH
10:52:09 adlai: the puzzling thing is that the code doesn't even have any understanding of their swap contract; it's simulating it into a spot market
10:55:47 adlai: !s bitmex
10:56:37 adlai: their CTO lurks here (hi STRML ) but he makes dirac sound as noisy as mp
10:59:27 *: adlai would be curious to hear if kakobrekla (or anyone else who has traded there) has run afoul of their 'deleverage' mechanism
11:00:04 adlai: so far my positions are usually near the top of their deleverage queue, and i've seen massive liquidations hit the orderbooks, but never gotten deleveraged myself
11:00:36 *: adlai might still be too small a fish for that fork
14:53:33 pankkake: that bch pump is strong
14:53:59 funkenstein_: wow .22
14:54:11 funkenstein_: adlai, deleveraging is a nice way to put it
14:54:58 funkenstein_: if a market is a place where things are traded, bitmex isn't exactly a market is it
14:59:36 funkenstein_: anyway keep us posted on the efficient casino hypothesis, sounds like fun :)
20:19:14 adlai: it's a derivatives market. exactly what's printed on the label. "reminds one tearfully of the early days of #b-a"
21:15:49 adlai: yesterday's ROD was worst yet - only 11.55%
21:17:17 adlai: ROD = return on deposit, ie the 'balance' in my account doesn't exist until withdrawn
21:17:42 adlai: i guess that bloats the figure!
