00:03:25 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform pretty lulzy

00:07:35 mircea_popescu: cedivad: Barber claimed that they were payments to suppliers, but he has still to prove that. << that'd be unlikely. depends a lot of the jurisdiction and everything, but in general speaking the manager can just say "we have no more money" and that's that. he doesn't have to prove how he spent it. you may prove he misspent it and then it could escalate to fraud, but in general, in a bankruptcy, a manager is not going t

00:07:35 mircea_popescu: o have to prove shit.

00:08:57 mike_c: knc, relatively speaking, is on the ball. last week they shipped (300 x 3) = 900 TH/s, and a similar amount over the next week.

00:10:07 mircea_popescu: by mid summer every government with pretensions will be mining.

00:10:54 mike_c: who else could it be. this is serious horsepower.

00:11:27 mike_c: hey TheNewDeal. by the way. don't bet against difficulty.

00:11:39 mircea_popescu: mike_c people interested in mysteries will now go into the logs to see when i first made certain unsubstantiated claims and then apply engineering timeframes to the window ellapsed.

00:11:48 mike_c: quite awhile ago.

00:12:03 mike_c: plus, it's easy now! search.b-a ftw

00:12:24 mike_c: hehe

00:13:24 TheNewDeal: mike_c why did this need to be repeated?

00:13:37 TheNewDeal: I thought that you and BB were betting against, and I was for 14B

00:56:24 TheNewDeal: ooooh getting me excited for my rock climbing trip next weekend

00:56:44 TheNewDeal: I'll show her an expert crack climb

00:56:57 mircea_popescu: lol

00:57:04 mircea_popescu: so ripe for linguistic exploitation that

00:57:20 cazalla: you're climbing a rock monyanna?

00:57:33 mircea_popescu: no, he's clinging to a crack

00:57:55 mircea_popescu: the crack that separates limb from limb

00:59:13 TheNewDeal: I'm rock climbing around 4th of July weekend. not next

00:59:15 TheNewDeal: wups

00:59:47 TheNewDeal: headed to land of smoker's paradise

01:07:29 TheNewDeal: pretty disappointed that I wasn't the winner of the bitbet adjudicating record with my bitcon price above $525 in may bet. seems like there was a little bit of leniency with this sports bets with the date adjustments

01:10:08 mircea_popescu: there was

01:10:23 mircea_popescu: whats an adjudication record ?

01:11:15 TheNewDeal: in bitcoinpetes blog it looked like you said you or kako had never adjudicated on a bitbet

01:11:26 cazalla: betting mid game of 3rd match is still a risk though if it's an hour until the block is confirmed, that's the other reason i avoid mid game bets

01:12:27 mircea_popescu: cazalla this is true

01:13:05 mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal well, it's the mod's job. they normally do a good job of it, but not always.

01:13:20 TheNewDeal: my case was a little iffy regardless

01:13:40 TheNewDeal: last minute bet on a price cross

01:14:58 mircea_popescu: (previous case like that was hmmm

01:15:00 mircea_popescu: lemme dig for it

01:15:42 assbot: The anatomy of a disaster pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.

01:15:45 mircea_popescu: there, about a year ago

01:17:26 TheNewDeal: damn

01:17:36 TheNewDeal: should have made a bet that was "bitbet will allow another negative bet"

01:19:20 TheNewDeal: latest urge to impulse bet is the FHM bet. Last year's sum was so high!

01:20:37 TheNewDeal: well not super high, but the winners made like 3X payout.

01:24:15 cazalla: TheNewDeal: do you bet to have some fun with it type shit or are you the sorta guy that knows the bounce you get off different sort of wood on basketball courts?

01:24:55 TheNewDeal: well I played basketball and up until 8th grade and wasn't good enough to make it on the freshman team

01:24:59 TheNewDeal: no basketball analogy fails

01:25:47 TheNewDeal: I'm the type of person that stays away from everything at the casino that designed to make you lose on purpose, and heads straight to the poker tables

01:26:21 TheNewDeal: take said bet here

01:27:26 TheNewDeal: but I knew what the return would be. I also looked at the return for people who might have a much larger BTC stake than myself

01:28:04 TheNewDeal: was quite sure that no larger bets would come on the same side. Made sure that the outcome was a rare event, and felt very confident in betting

01:29:26 cazalla: what's your best bet?

01:29:53 TheNewDeal: to date, will be 14B in may

01:30:03 cazalla: this one paid ok considering i only bet chump change amounts http://bitbet.us/bet/832/difficulty-at-block-302-400-over-10-billion/

01:30:21 cazalla: shame more people didn't bet on that prop though

01:30:26 TheNewDeal: shhhh

01:30:29 TheNewDeal: that's me you're raping

01:30:42 cazalla: orly?

01:30:49 TheNewDeal: very poorly designed bet if I might add

01:31:06 TheNewDeal: was my first approved

01:31:46 cazalla: i'm hoping a win on the knc bet but expect to lose given criteria even though they've begun shipping

01:32:07 TheNewDeal: well don't they also have to perform to spec?

01:32:28 cazalla: yes that too

01:33:30 TheNewDeal: best resolved bet to date was this I guess. http://bitbet.us/bet/800/bitcoin-price-above-525-before-may/#b27 12% return over a 24 hr period :D

01:34:14 TheNewDeal: I guess it wasn't really that large though if you add in my late bet that was refunded as well

01:34:28 kakobrekla: bitcoinpete did like 30% in less than an hour ?

01:35:11 TheNewDeal: well thats pretty fucking fantastic if you ask me

01:36:49 TheNewDeal: I'm trying to get away from the risky bets myself

01:37:16 TheNewDeal: played too much with the price bets when I started and just ended up making little for risking lots

01:39:45 TheNewDeal: On a slightly different topic. Was the Nanking massacre related to the Treaty of Versailles ? Was talking about the Nanking massacre just the other day at work with someone, he was talking about the Nazis being involved, and I didn't realize Germany had given Japan some land in China a couple decades before

01:45:28 mircea_popescu: mthreat why does neither http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=tumblr.com nor http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=tumblr match http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=25-06-2014#731499 even though the former matches http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=11-06-2014#713703 (and how come they don't both match that).

01:49:32 mircea_popescu: mthreat but if you look, plenty of similar links yest

01:50:28 mircea_popescu: i think there's some sort of funk in url tokenization maybe

01:52:09 assbot: War of Life - Cellular automaton to the death!

01:52:09 mthreat: ah yeah. "tumblr.com" matches 7 because those 7 have "/tumblr_xyz" in the url, which gets tokenized so it has the token "tumblr"

01:52:44 mthreat: ^ wait nevermind what i just said

01:53:03 mike_c: what a title

02:32:47 mike_c: yeah. game 8 on left/top is last week's game. below that, game 10, is next week's game.

02:33:06 TheNewDeal: ahhh I gotcha

02:33:14 mike_c: and by "week" i mean 1000 blocks.

02:33:28 TheNewDeal: what I'm wondering is this. How many 1000 block games will be played?

02:33:35 mike_c: hopefully infinite.

02:34:41 mike_c: make sense at all? every 1000 blocks a new game starts?

02:34:53 TheNewDeal: yes

02:35:24 TheNewDeal: just confused me with the name Game of Week, thought there might be a totally different game next week

02:35:33 TheNewDeal: and GoL would turn into a minigame or something

02:36:03 mike_c: it is not as simple as dice, but hopefully some find it fun.

02:36:26 TheNewDeal: most definitely. I think it will appeal to the btc crowd

14:42:29 mike_c: cuz that's for the root domain

14:42:51 ThickAsThieves: i was only there as a last resort, cuz the DNS secrtion only allowed TXT or CNAME

14:53:01 ThickAsThieves: where i can fully choose to make any kind of record

14:54:01 punkman: you need to make ns1.therealaltcoin.org and ns2.therealaltcoin.org, point to nameserver ip

14:54:26 punkman: then add seed, ns1.therealaltcoin.org NS record

14:55:07 jurov: ThickAsThieves: I had to look

14:55:18 jurov: and on Modify Domain screen

14:55:21 punkman: ThickAsThieves: does the domain use the host's nameserver?

14:55:25 ThickAsThieves: yes

14:55:34 punkman: well then you need to go there and add NS record

14:55:42 ThickAsThieves: ...

14:55:47 jurov: there is NS record under ADVANCED in the RCORD TYPE dropdown

14:56:00 punkman: yeah but you gotta use NC's nameserver for that

14:58:33 ThickAsThieves: i see no "advanced" in this window jurov

14:59:44 punkman: oh you use namecheap hosting for it

14:59:48 ThickAsThieves: yes

15:00:15 ThickAsThieves: in that screenshot, do i just put this custom IP in the ns1 and ns2 boxes and add that?

15:00:38 pankkake: ns1 and ns2 should be namecheap nameserver ips

15:01:04 punkman: do you see a link on the menu that says "Transfer DNS Back to Us"?

15:01:18 ThickAsThieves: it's always there, but yeah

15:01:22 ThickAsThieves: even if you use them

15:01:40 punkman: no if you use them it says "Transfer to web host"

15:02:13 punkman: maybe the hosting account menu has something about dns?

15:02:18 punkman: never used that myself

15:02:19 ThickAsThieves: jurov i cant find that window

15:02:35 punkman: yeah because you use namecheaphosting dns, not namecheap dns

15:03:03 ThickAsThieves: lol

15:03:10 jurov: menu -> manage domains -> click on domain name -> all host records

15:03:17 ThickAsThieves: doesnt exist

15:03:18 ThickAsThieves: ok

15:03:23 ThickAsThieves: i think punkman is onto something

15:03:24 jurov: which step doesnt exist?

15:03:32 ThickAsThieves: so i'm using their DNS, just not THEIR DNS

15:03:34 ThickAsThieves: or someshit

15:03:52 punkman: my domain with NC DNS uses DNS1.REGISTRAR-SERVERS.COM

15:04:02 punkman: not DNS1.NAMECHEAPHOSTING.COM

15:04:13 punkman: which is what therealaltcoin has

15:11:04 ThickAsThieves: so i need to wait the TTL time before checking if this worked right?

15:11:23 ThickAsThieves: 1800 is 30m if i recall?

15:11:36 mike_c: ttl is a suggestion

15:11:41 ThickAsThieves: ah

15:12:09 ThickAsThieves: how do i know if it's working, does an NS record show up on whatsmydns.net?

15:12:32 mike_c: what should happen is eventually you do a dig -t any therealaltcoin.org and it shows up

15:12:45 pankkake: you can ask the responsible dns server directly, bypassing ISP caches

15:13:26 ThickAsThieves: i dont understand either of you

15:13:28 ThickAsThieves: :)

15:13:58 ThickAsThieves: i can tell ya when i visit seeds.therealaltcoin.org it behaves differently now :/

15:14:20 mike_c: uh oh

15:14:25 mike_c: A record seems to be gone

15:14:52 punkman: did you transfer "back to us"?

15:14:55 ThickAsThieves: yes

15:15:03 ThickAsThieves: probly a delay in that?

15:15:04 mike_c: oh, nvm. it's there now. weird.

15:15:05 punkman: because now it has no idea what IP the root is

15:15:52 punkman: unless they've added some magic

15:16:08 punkman: *root domain

15:16:29 ThickAsThieves: the page loads at least

15:16:48 ThickAsThieves: but no idea if the seeds subdomain is set up as needed yet

15:16:56 punkman: and if you add it manually, then namecheaphosting can't update the IP if it ever changes

15:17:05 mike_c: ThickAsThieves: the point is not for seeds.therealaltcoin.org to show a web page. what should happen when this is working is that it will point to active ATC nodes (which probably aren't running web servers)

15:17:31 ThickAsThieves: i understand that no page would load (i assum you'd need to do something on your end for a page to load via http for it)

15:17:57 ThickAsThieves: what i dont understand is how to check if i did it right

15:18:38 mike_c: i'll let you know.

15:18:53 ThickAsThieves: cool

15:19:27 TomServo: *** ns1.namecheaphosting.com can't find seeds.therealaltcoin.org: Non-existent domain

15:19:38 TomServo: Is that your DNS server?

15:20:09 punkman: TomServo: ns1.therealaltcoin.org is supposed to be the NS for seeds.

15:20:56 ThickAsThieves: so should i add a nameserver in addition to the NS record?

15:21:10 ThickAsThieves: pointing to same outside IP?

15:21:16 mike_c: 54.x.x.x *is* a nameserver

16:41:45 mircea_popescu: usg will just redefine "cellphones" as laptops or w/e

16:41:51 ThickAsThieves: cuz mike_c told me to, cuz that IP is his and a nameserver

16:42:12 ThickAsThieves: i only menat to do as told

16:42:20 ThickAsThieves: should it be A instead?

16:42:30 punkman: mike's nameserver spits out node IPs as A records

16:42:32 mircea_popescu: this should be interesting, how tat's soup comes out with al lthe asset cooks

16:43:13 ThickAsThieves: i dont have a problem hosting the seeds myself, if handheld through it

16:44:02 davout: punkman: so the use case is that they're going to be multiple seeds, managed by mike_c like s1.seeds.therealtcoin.org ?

16:44:18 ThickAsThieves: no it's just a list i think

16:44:47 ThickAsThieves: i think the plan is to embed this subdomain into the altcoin software, so newbs can get the chain easier

16:45:28 ThickAsThieves: and i'm not so sure i'm qualified

16:45:38 pankkake: yes, that is is

16:45:48 davout: well, then you don't need a NS record

16:46:07 davout: you need a plain old A record for seeds that points to the IP of the server managing the seeds list

16:56:14 mircea_popescu: so 1mn per ph, net of any logistics

16:56:22 davout: and electricity

16:56:31 mircea_popescu: 1.25 prolly reasonable yeah. electricity is logistics :D

17:11:12 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves: this trader's biggets problem, which he is so obliviously documenting, is he is emotional << funny how that works huh.

17:11:29 mircea_popescu: davout take a hint ? :D

17:12:09 davout: mircea_popescu: ?

17:12:32 mircea_popescu: you know, "why do i get a fail message when im not doing anything"

17:12:36 mircea_popescu: "cuz you suck!!1"

17:12:51 davout: meh, i get the same message as you

17:13:29 davout: also same message from different machine, on different network

17:14:00 davout: mike_c: maybe that's related to using an IP directly as the NS field value, i have no fucking clue :D

17:16:57 punkman: "It is important to know that NS records are only responsible for defining the names of DNS servers within a zone, i.e. they do not represent IP addresses,"

18:53:13 punkman: I want to make a nice provably fair baccarat game. Get all those chinese bitcoins.

18:53:13 mircea_popescu: 1. Client changes the seed after each new server seed, before every bet. He doesn't know server seed, so seed he provides should give a random number. (Painfully tedious, few actually do it, but for those who do, provably fair.) << prolly a bot that does this would be useful.

18:54:09 Namworld: Yes, it should indeed be a requirement to have such an external tool for current venues.

18:54:56 Namworld: mircea, I'll probably just post it on the gambling forum where it is relevant and let people pitch in.

18:55:08 Namworld: At least there's a large, targeted audience there.

18:55:36 mircea_popescu: i guess also

18:55:58 mircea_popescu: punkman i never got bacarrat, but you know what might be a good idea ?

18:56:03 mircea_popescu: a museum of gambling site

18:56:20 mircea_popescu: play all the games that meanwhile died, from ancient egypt and fenicia to chemin-du-fer

18:56:39 punkman: not bad

18:57:12 mircea_popescu: Namworld "No, you wouldn't be able to notice that the website, across all players, has a much higher house edge than 1% which is unlikely. It's easy to fill with fake "lucky" account to compensate " << you could notice it over your own experience.

18:57:24 mircea_popescu: jd for instance allows you to run 0 bet sampling rounds of infinite size.

18:57:50 mircea_popescu: or should i say allowed.

18:59:11 mircea_popescu: but anywqay, this entire paper is not about server cheating, it's about how "if you're lazy and stupid you might lose". sure. as it should be. let people make proper betting bots with seeding per bet

18:59:52 mircea_popescu: and yes jd was correctly implemented.

19:00:21 penguirker: New blog post: http://pankkake.headfucking.net/2014/06/25/bitcoin-is-not-a-payment-network/

19:01:02 mircea_popescu: the coinroll "end of the day disclosure" method is also acceptable. it may be open to abuse for low volume sites (based on finding hash collisions, much in the same way mining works) but doesn't seem too practical

19:01:55 mircea_popescu: client's last deposit tx is good, and a lot of space in there in the block in case it's needed.

19:02:19 mircea_popescu: i still say you should make a blog.

19:02:40 Namworld: It doesn't help much if the system is targetting accounts with large balance and stops cheating after a small sample/when the large balance isn't making large bets.

19:03:03 mircea_popescu: this is true

19:03:10 Namworld: They could steal a few thousands extra BTC on large bets which might not seem too odd until it's too late.

19:03:27 Namworld: Would also be costly to attempt to verify by betting.

19:04:25 assbot: bitbet.us scammers ignore delivered BFL products | Bitcointa.lk

19:04:26 mircea_popescu: lol epic

19:07:03 mircea_popescu: Namworld do you see why the jd "show on request" model is slightly stronger for fairness than the "fixed time disclosure" ?

19:08:26 mircea_popescu: pankkake "Then there is services like" there are.

19:09:13 Namworld: How is it stronger for fairness? Server seed provided prior to client seed.

19:09:45 mircea_popescu: let me show you a model.

19:09:48 pankkake: I thought about it, and decided "there is" was the correct form, as I am saying "services like this exist"

19:09:53 Namworld: Sure

19:10:02 pankkake: but maybe I am confused about the grammar

19:10:08 mircea_popescu: you are yes.

19:10:15 mircea_popescu: Namworld suppose site switcxhes at 1 btc. so :

19:10:28 mircea_popescu: server seed is "A". 0.1 btc comes in, is calculated. wins or loses.

19:10:34 mircea_popescu: 0.2 btc comes in, idem calculated.

19:10:52 mircea_popescu: at this point, server is also mining, and knows that hash "B" would also be consistent with the history so far.

19:11:05 mircea_popescu: ie, either "A" or "B" would give the 0.1 and 0.2 bets same results.

19:11:29 mircea_popescu: 1.2 btc bet comes in. server looks at results, A wins, B loses. server picks its hash as B and reconstructs the merkle tree

19:11:51 mircea_popescu: now, if you know when the hash will have to be revealed, this is possible

19:12:02 mircea_popescu: if hash may be revealed at any random point, this is suddenly problematic

19:12:55 Namworld: There's a single server seed for all users for the day... with its hash predisclosed. It would be pretty much impossible to reasonably find another seed that matches the hash...

19:12:56 mircea_popescu: the absolutely ideal system, imo, would be a server that used the same secret for ALL PLAYERS and reset it (for all players) at any player's request. but this poses problems for anon players.

19:12:59 mircea_popescu: it's a conundrum

19:13:14 mircea_popescu: Namworld a you also predisclose the hash ?

19:13:24 ThickAsThieves: pankkake why do you lie to us http://www.coindesk.com/intuit-merchants-accept-bitcoin-paybycoin-service/

19:13:24 assbot: Intuit Lets Merchants Accept Bitcoin With New 'PayByCoin' Service

19:13:38 Namworld: Yes, there's a list with months of secrets' hashes provided upfront.

19:13:48 Namworld: Like JD provides the server's seed hash.

19:13:49 ThickAsThieves: (intuit is what most small businesses and more use for acconting in US)

19:14:13 mircea_popescu: Namworld a ok nm then, it's quite strong

19:14:25 Namworld: Here: https://coinroll.com/files/secrethashes.txt

19:14:57 mircea_popescu: "Now some guy now wants" pankkake must proof moar omg

19:14:57 Namworld: That and we don't provide a default client seed, we use the blockchain transaction ID of the last deposit.

19:15:07 mircea_popescu: Namworld ya that part is very good.

19:15:09 Namworld: So by default all players should be covered correctly

19:15:29 Namworld: No work to do on the user's part, other than verification.

19:15:45 mircea_popescu: Namworld why is that txt not signed ?

19:16:24 mircea_popescu: and also it's a fine example of what'd go into the bitcoin-assets registrar of deeds.

19:16:28 mircea_popescu: was someone working on that ?

19:16:52 pankkake: this is why I usually don't publish after writing, but hey…

19:17:37 mircea_popescu: lol

19:17:38 Namworld: Not sure, would probably be best for list to be signed.

19:45:09 pankkake: I agree the formulation isn't ideal. I mean, what if block reward was 1 BTC forever

19:45:51 mircea_popescu: but you're right, the only current business of pseudo-bitcoin businesses a la coinbase, bitpay etc is that they're benefiting from a legal inefficiency, where exchanges that admit it are being fucked actively, whereas exchangesd that pretend to be paymernt processors aren't fucked quite as bad quite as yet.

19:46:59 mircea_popescu: pankkake that is matematically equivalent to "each block is its own sort of halving"

19:47:20 mircea_popescu: in theory it should make no difference.

22:39:30 bitcoinpete: and here we are, 3 years on. starting new blogs

22:40:21 pankkake: I had a blog when it was trendy to have one

22:40:43 bitcoinpete: lol donations! http://www.coindesk.com/adopt-node-project-aims-bolster-bitcoin-network-security/

22:40:43 assbot: 'Adopt a Node' Project Aims to Bolster Bitcoin Network Security

22:40:57 bitcoinpete: pankkake: and when was this?

22:41:00 moiety: i'm learning quick though mircea_popescu :]

22:41:21 mircea_popescu: :p remember kitten, one of the first things i said to you was wtf you doing with the doge

22:41:23 pankkake: my first post is probably 2004

22:41:41 moiety: do yous remember the failed attampt at a bitcoin facebook?

22:41:50 davout: moiety: lol no, shoot

22:42:11 moiety: mircea_popescu: a question I have since repeated tomyself so many times.

22:42:51 moiety: davout, it was exactly the same as facebook but orange and had bitcoin symbols everywhere. i think it failed so badly, theytried to sell it and couldn't even pan it off

22:42:53 pankkake: wait I've been running a node for years, can I get paid?!

22:43:04 pankkake: or is it only funding nodes ran by the same guy (but decentralization!)

22:43:23 bitcoinpete: pankkake: running nodes, writing for your blog, everything should get you paid!

22:43:31 pankkake: actually, first post: September 2003

22:43:36 bitcoinpete: solid

22:43:49 mircea_popescu: on reading http://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/news/f-derp-short-risky-bitcoin-startups/2014/06/25 towards where it says "the log of the original discussion", am i the only one for whom that link comes as some sort of doge thing rather than a log linkj ?

22:43:52 assbot: F.DERP, A New Bitcoin Short-Only Hedge Fund Targeting Major Bitcoin Startups

22:43:56 mircea_popescu: somethign weird going on with overlays in there

22:44:23 mircea_popescu: pankkake can you believe the braindamage ?

22:45:34 TheNewDeal: ok I have a stupid question. What happens if I have two vending machines that sit side by side and both accept bitcoin. Will people have to wait for 6 confirmations to receive goods, or is there some other way to receive their bitcoin safely?

22:45:39 pankkake: link is ok, thank god for noscript/requestpolicy/etc

22:46:04 mircea_popescu: TheNewDeal at the size of your purchase you can prollylet them go on one confirm. who's gonna dblspend for a can of coke

22:46:18 TheNewDeal: friggin candy addicts

22:46:21 pankkake: do you think they will double spend to buy cheap food? in a physical location?

22:46:30 mircea_popescu: get out. they gotta be physically there too, it's not worth it

22:47:09 mircea_popescu: you got a better deal with this than with them putting in us quarters anyway.

22:47:29 TheNewDeal: ok what happens if I have a laundromat and the washer accept bitcoin. Someone finds out they can just come and get two loads for the price of 1, dry 2 loads for the price of 1, etc

22:47:39 mircea_popescu: ya right,.

22:47:49 justusranvier: re: getting paid to operate nodes: http://sourceforce.net/p/bitcoin/mailman/message/32467926/

22:47:49 assbot: sourceforce.net

22:47:55 mircea_popescu: someone doing that much hash doesn't need your puny 5kw tumble drier

22:48:02 mircea_popescu: they got their very own 12 MW thing

22:48:05 TheNewDeal: do you need to hash at all?

22:48:09 mircea_popescu: yes.

22:48:16 TheNewDeal: I thought you could just send 2 transactions before a block is mined

22:48:24 mircea_popescu: so you'd see the other one first ?

22:48:46 TheNewDeal: doesnt propagation take on the scale of minutes?

22:48:53 mircea_popescu: 6 confirms (as opposed to 1 confirm) only matters if they are actively mining and attacking the chain

22:49:08 mircea_popescu: 1 confirm (as opposed to 0 confirms) helps if they try to isolate you in the convey txn graph

22:49:19 mircea_popescu: but this you can fight by keeping good peers.

22:49:48 pankkake: nodes shouldn't propagate the doublespent tx if they have the first, but of course it's not 100% reliable

22:50:13 mircea_popescu: it's about 96% reliable atm i think

22:50:20 TheNewDeal: couldn't any derp go to blockchain tho?

22:50:38 TheNewDeal: just use the doublespend feature

22:50:52 pankkake: you mean bitundo?

22:50:55 mircea_popescu: it';s not really all that trivial.

22:51:20 mircea_popescu: nobody's doublespending your .85 bitcent stale sandwich

22:51:29 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [B.MINE] 50 @ 0.0163868 = 0.8193 BTC [+] {2}

22:51:33 TheNewDeal: more concerned about the laundry :D

22:51:34 davout: am i the only one to think it's actually stupid to not relay double spends ?

22:51:39 mike_c: this was explored exhaustively with satoshi dice. some serious gymnastics pulled it off with trivial amounts, and SD then reacted and closed that loophole as well.

22:51:53 pankkake: davout: I've read some interesting debates but I don't remember them

22:51:55 TheNewDeal: can I get a linky to their solution?

22:51:58 mircea_popescu: yeah, what mike_c said.

22:52:26 mircea_popescu: davout not really much diff. sort-of poisons you as it were.

22:52:34 moiety: davout: I can't find any screens of it. here's the logo https://bitcointa.lk/data/avatars/m/78/78316.jpg?1393513983 Bitcoin Socially it was called.

22:52:43 mike_c: the double spend had to do with making the SD tx ugly (lots of inputs), and double-spending with a fee. SD just started using fees and problem went away iirc.

22:53:12 davout: mircea_popescu: "sort-of poisons you as it were." <<< does not parse

22:53:30 pankkake: iirc the payment protocol (I know, right) can make propagating the transaction the responsibility of the merchant

22:53:42 mircea_popescu: davout type 1 (pick one tx, relay that) "poisons" the nodes that got the dblspend. type 2 (relay all) doesn't.

22:54:01 mircea_popescu: imo type 1 behaviour is better

22:54:32 mircea_popescu: but they don't make that much difference

22:54:37 davout: pankkake mircea_popescu i tend to think it's better to transparently relay both txes, so that they're much easier to detect if you care about them

22:54:56 mircea_popescu: well yeah. conversely, type 1 makes it obvious which nodes get poisoned

22:55:04 mircea_popescu: would you rather see the bad tx or the "bad" nodes ?

22:55:47 davout: i think it's easier to handle an obvious double spend than to keep track of 'good' vs. 'evil' nodes

22:55:49 mircea_popescu: seeing how blacklisting is still a thing, consensus kinda favoured current behaviour for good game theoretic reasons

22:55:54 pankkake: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/3354

22:55:56 assbot: Relay first-double-spend transactions by gavinandresen Pull Request #3354 bitcoin/bitcoin GitHub

22:56:01 mircea_popescu: it was argued this isn't so smart. but anyway

22:58:25 Naphex: anyone can recommend a easy tool to sign multi-sig transactions ?

22:58:33 Naphex: to pass to a noob to sign his stuff

22:58:45 mircea_popescu: anyway, node behaviour is going to be the major topic of 2015 i suspect.

22:59:18 mircea_popescu: they have no incentive (perhaps the best candidate for a satoshi oversight is not putting any incentive for tx relay at all) to behave properly and a lot of different types of misbehaviours necessarily include themn

22:59:20 TheNewDeal: why so

23:00:28 davout: mircea_popescu: "it was argued this isn't so smart." <<< i'd be interested in reading the argument

23:01:12 mircea_popescu: davout you're mostly rehashing it right now ?

23:01:23 mircea_popescu: anyway, salmon's here. bbl #2!

23:02:59 davout: mircea_popescu: thinking about it, i'm usually not very fond of arguments that nodes should behave a particular way, simply interested in the case against transparently relaying all legal txes, even if they are double spends

23:05:20 TheNewDeal: well what happens to a node that has a transaction and receives information about a double spend of that transaction?

23:06:00 mike_c: you mean what happens when a block is orphaned?

23:06:17 TheNewDeal: hmmm

23:06:34 TheNewDeal: i just started reading about this statoshi client today so forgive my ignorance http://coinchomp.com/2014/05/07/announcing-statoshi-realtime-bitcoin-node-statistics/

23:06:35 assbot: Announcing Statoshi: Realtime Bitcoin Node Statistics - CoinChomp

23:06:51 davout: TheNewDeal: you don't double spend a transaction, you double spend an output, but other than that, nothing really until one of them gets into a mined block, more information can't really hurt

23:07:19 TheNewDeal: unless of course you're receiving an immediate service

23:07:53 TheNewDeal: isn't there something about nodes being banned for like 24 hours for bad behavior?

23:09:19 TheNewDeal: I'm just thinking in terms of my vending machine example

23:09:40 TheNewDeal: might be in full retard mode

23:11:12 mthreat: anyone loaded the blockchain into a graph database like neo4j? google released another graph database today, https://github.com/google/cayley

23:11:45 davout: mthreat: i know a guy that did if you're interdasted

23:12:15 bitcoinpete: on the bitbettery: http://trilema.com/2014/the-results-of-the-world-cup-experiment/#comment-101741 nao with fickst avatar!

23:12:16 assbot: The results of the World Cup experiment. pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.

23:12:31 davout: TheNewDeal: i think what you're referring to is nodes banning some of their peers, you don't really ban nodes from the network

23:12:50 TheNewDeal: yes indeed

23:13:34 mthreat: davout: ya i'm kind of interested - any interesting results?

23:13:35 TheNewDeal: wasn't sure if it was considered bad behavior to propagate a double spent output

23:13:41 dignork: Naphex: if it's 2-3 multisig, check bitrated.com, it allows to use online generated keys, or just use pubkeys

23:13:58 davout: TheNewDeal: if you give some low value thing in exchange for a zero-conf tx, you might find it useful to immediately get the information that someone is attempting a double spend, rather than having the info cock-blocked

23:14:29 davout: mthreat: i didn't really dig, what kind of results are you after ?

23:14:45 Naphex: dignork: nah something custom, just sign a multisig with a privkey

23:14:58 mthreat: davout: nothing specific.. just seems like there could be some interesting stuff, watching the flow of coins

23:15:31 dignork: Naphex: https://github.com/spesmilo/sx then

23:15:31 assbot: spesmilo/sx GitHub

23:15:40 davout: mthreat: have you read the paper from adi shamir and dorit ron?

23:15:46 mthreat: davout: yeah

23:16:00 Naphex: the yeah i know sx, but needed something to give to a noob. who won;t be able to command line it:P

23:16:03 bitcoinpete: ;;later tell mircea_popescu which trilema article featured this dood ? seem to recall seeing mr. wonderful there at some point http://www.businessinsider.com/chen-guangbiao-lunch-cash-giveaway-2014-6

23:16:04 assbot: Chen Guangbiao Lunch Cash Giveaway - Business Insider

23:16:04 gribble: The operation succeeded.

23:16:09 Naphex: but i'll probably write something simple to sign it

23:16:51 davout: mthreat: so you know as much as i do ;) i'll put you in touch with the guy that did it if you want to implement sthg on your side

23:17:20 mthreat: davout: ah.. no that's ok.. thanks

23:17:52 davout: Naphex: you apparently haven't learned the "don't give people bitcoins if they ain't educated enough to handle them themselves" lesson heh?

23:20:25 Naphex: davout: just need em to sign a transaction once in a while

23:21:22 thestringpuller: davout: hah. but if those people make us look better.

23:24:45 davout: Naphex: maybe an idea would be for them to simply use the qt built-in console rather than a full-fledged terminal?

23:25:40 Naphex: davout: yep, but you need to make a json array with the redeemScript, inputs and script-pubkey

23:25:48 Naphex: which requires quite some manual work

23:25:55 Naphex: would probably be easier with bash and terminal

23:26:07 Naphex: then with current bitcoin-cli multisig

23:26:15 dignork: Naphex: you can show them full json on site/send by email w/e

23:26:59 Naphex: yeah - will probably just write some simple tool

23:27:06 Naphex: put raw transaction in, + privkey sign it

23:27:12 Naphex: i create transaction and just pass it

23:29:07 Naphex: probably even simplify and use lotsa scrypt rounds and use a password to gen priv key

23:29:12 Naphex: then they can just sign with password

23:30:17 dignork: Naphex: look at bitrated.com, they did it properly, and their code is on github

23:31:16 dignork: actually they - shesek, you can talk to him

23:31:34 Naphex: its no problem, was just looking for a already made tool

23:32:23 dignork: Naphex: there is also http://ms-brainwallet.org/ , but it's horribly wrong

23:32:24 assbot: Multi-Signature Brainwallet - JavaScript Client-Side Bitcoin Address Generator

23:32:52 Naphex: dignork: thx, haven't seen this one before

23:33:06 Naphex: only the outcast one which looked to only work with its own privkeys

23:33:09 Naphex: dunno why the hell

23:33:43 Naphex: dignork: lol, ms-brainwallet doesn't look right needing both keys :)

23:33:55 dignork: yeah, braindead

23:34:03 dignork: it was a POC code I assume

23:34:16 Naphex: probably

23:34:42 Naphex: but kinda fits, what i was looking for is something where you input transaction, signed & composed by person A

23:34:56 Naphex: and person B can just sign it providing redemption + privkey

23:35:12 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1800 @ 0.00082446 = 1.484 BTC [+]

23:35:14 dignork: yeah, but it expects two privkeys :)

23:35:21 Naphex: and the raw transaction is read only :P

23:36:13 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 45 @ 0.0478 = 2.151 BTC [+]

23:39:16 Naphex: bitcoinjs looks to have multisig support

23:39:29 Naphex: maybe i can just roll something quick in js and leave it at that

23:39:58 dignork: Naphex: dealing with noobs, worst question is: how do I get a pubkey

23:40:18 mike_c: <+Naphex> maybe i can just roll something quick in js and leave it at that << famous last words?

23:40:35 Naphex: mike_c: its just for signing a transactions that is already composed and signed, multi sig also

23:40:56 Naphex: i wouldn't care much even if 2nd key got compromised, since the raw pre-signed transaction delivered is already composed

23:41:21 mike_c: "JavaScript-based cryptography" just sounds.. terrifying.

23:41:30 Naphex: i agree

23:41:44 Naphex: but for signing a multisig not that bad
