02:17:05 mircea_popescu: A recent investigation has shown that the number of clicks on search results stemming from a given country correlates with the amount of investment in that country

02:17:12 mircea_popescu: totally. this is so useful and everything.

02:17:25 mircea_popescu: buncha onanists, these people.

02:27:38 seongyupyoo: hi, i'm back with couple of questions

02:27:43 seongyupyoo: mircea still here?

02:28:00 mircea_popescu: yea

02:29:07 seongyupyoo: cool, so i've been thinking really hard about destorying, and really the only way this system would be viable if the destroy funds are either really destroyed, sent to void, sent back to blockchain somehow

02:29:54 seongyupyoo: i'm wondering what ways there are to do 1. really destroy bitcoins 2. blackhole it 3. give it back to blockchain

02:30:01 seongyupyoo: could you help?

02:30:31 ThickAsThieves: what's the difference between 1 and 2

02:30:45 mircea_popescu: well, 1 justg send them to a fixed address like 1blackhole398759347589

02:30:51 seongyupyoo: i don't know as i don't know how to do either

02:31:07 ThickAsThieves: 3 is best

02:31:16 ThickAsThieves: you dont want to be a destroying coins

02:31:23 ThickAsThieves: and you couldnt prove that you were

02:31:30 seongyupyoo: ok so 1 and 2 are same

02:31:30 mircea_popescu: seongyupyoo its simple, just send coins to an address that nobody has the key for.

02:31:40 mircea_popescu: something arbitrary, like 1thisaddressisablackhole

02:31:53 mircea_popescu: you'll need to calculatge the checksums so it validates, but that's no big deal

02:32:02 seongyupyoo: ok

02:32:17 mircea_popescu: 3 you could just add it as miner fee in a tx.

02:32:18 ThickAsThieves: but the problem there is you are accelerating deflation

02:32:26 seongyupyoo: so i got that now 1 and 2 are same and you just send to an address that no one has key to

02:32:29 mircea_popescu: like, make a tx with 100 btc inputs, 1 satoshi outputs

02:33:04 seongyupyoo: i'm not following you when you say make tx with 100 input to and 1 output

02:33:22 mircea_popescu: all bitcoin txs have some inputs and some outputs.

02:33:23 seongyupyoo: how verifiable is adding as fee though?

02:33:27 mircea_popescu: very.

02:33:28 ThickAsThieves: he means .00000001 output

02:33:38 seongyupyoo: people will need to be able to see that their exact fund amount has been destroyed at that time

02:33:56 ThickAsThieves: easy you just link them to the tx

02:33:59 mircea_popescu: you just check the tx in blockchain, it'll be there. 100 goes in, 1 goes out so 99 was miner fee

02:34:10 mircea_popescu: or w/e actual numbers.

02:34:18 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 4033 @ 0.00070092 = 2.8268 BTC [+]

02:34:20 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 11595 @ 0.00070129 = 8.1315 BTC [+]

02:34:54 seongyupyoo: so send money from my wallet to my wallet with 100 input and 1 output if i don't to give back 99?

02:35:24 mircea_popescu: um

02:35:28 mircea_popescu: come again ?

02:35:53 seongyupyoo: i'm just trying to clarify how to make a transaction

02:36:02 seongyupyoo: who is it going to and from?

02:36:10 seongyupyoo: 100 input and 1 output

02:36:11 mircea_popescu: whoever you want.

02:36:18 ThickAsThieves: you have to send an actual amount (i think) plus a tx fee

02:36:22 mircea_popescu: i think you'll have to read up on how bitcoin txs work

02:36:28 ThickAsThieves: most of the destroyed coin would be sent as the tx fee

02:36:35 maximian: send 0.00000001 BTC to any address, and specify a fee of 99BTC

02:36:35 ThickAsThieves: but you would send .00000001 of it to yourself

02:36:36 seongyupyoo: i see so it is fee

02:36:51 seongyupyoo: i understand that, i thought there was another way to manually setting input and output

02:36:57 seongyupyoo: how bad is destroying to blackholeaddress?

02:37:08 ThickAsThieves: i think its bad

02:37:14 mircea_popescu: pretty bad yea.

02:37:17 ThickAsThieves: and not necessary

02:37:20 seongyupyoo: ok

02:37:29 seongyupyoo: i think that settles it then

02:37:45 ThickAsThieves: but do what mp said

02:37:50 ThickAsThieves: learn more about tx

02:37:52 ThickAsThieves: and blockchain

02:37:57 ThickAsThieves: and what your options are

02:38:00 seongyupyoo: i identified 4 big issues from all the feedback i gather today

02:38:12 ThickAsThieves: because you might not want to send a 100btc tx fee

02:38:23 ThickAsThieves: you might want to send a lot of small ones

02:38:33 ThickAsThieves: depending on how mining pools snag them

02:38:34 seongyupyoo: would you guys like to hear the 4 problems, and my plan to solve them?

02:38:42 mircea_popescu: sure.

02:39:10 seongyupyoo: well, if i send a lot of small ones, it would be hard for the traders to check their fund was destroyed

02:39:25 ThickAsThieves: you can send more than one tx at once i think

02:39:37 seongyupyoo: i should start running a pool where i keep the transaction fee lol

02:40:01 seongyupyoo: then i'd need to provide many transation id as a proof of destruction

02:40:22 seongyupyoo: i think big fee would be fine

02:40:26 ThickAsThieves: maybe

02:40:32 seongyupyoo: also i figured out a way so that nobody will ever have to risk 100 BTC

02:40:39 seongyupyoo: probably 1 BTC to 10 BTC max

02:41:07 seongyupyoo: so max destruction is going to be 20-40 BTC at most

02:41:30 seongyupyoo: anyways, the first problem was issue of me running away with risk funds

02:41:38 kakobrekla: you are now arbitrarily setting what is ok give to pool ops?

02:41:59 seongyupyoo: I think I can remedy that by putting nashx under my current business of 7 years -> http://mosaically.com

02:42:10 seongyupyoo: so nashx might run under nashx.mosaically.com

02:42:30 seongyupyoo: what do you guys think?

02:43:31 usagi: i don't know what's going on

02:43:32 seongyupyoo: 2nd problem was destroying of the destroyed funds, and i'll handle that by sending it back to blockchain as fee

02:43:41 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 46572 @ 0.000703 = 32.7401 BTC [+]

02:44:29 seongyupyoo: 3rd problem is transparency, basically the ability for people to be able to see all that is happening in terms of transactions

02:45:13 seongyupyoo: i'll remedy that by making all transactions and messages between trader and such available for public view

02:45:20 ThickAsThieves: 1st problem seems like a non-problem with a non-solution

02:45:33 usagi: What was the middle thing?

02:46:18 usagi: I'm trying to understand this, so, you want to run a mining pool?

02:46:20 seongyupyoo: well someone thought that it was an issue, you're right it might not really be an issue. and it really isn't, but it was brought up, and i can see how some people might see that as risk

02:46:35 seongyupyoo: where as if it was under mosaically umbrella, then it would be under a corporation

02:46:42 seongyupyoo: more legit

02:46:58 ThickAsThieves: usagi: nashx.com/about

02:46:59 seongyupyoo: no i don't, i just made something called nashx

02:47:17 usagi: So your goal is to make it legit.. and your not planning to quit, as a result of that? you will see this through?

02:47:20 seongyupyoo: last problem is problem of big transactions

02:47:33 kakobrekla: seongyupyoo, balances and txes are public and audiable... so transparency is not a big issue

02:47:38 seongyupyoo: yes i will see this through

02:47:52 seongyupyoo: at least to the next version having solve these 4 problems

02:47:59 assbot: [BTCTC] [BTC-BOND] 35 @ 0.01 = 0.35 BTC [+]

02:48:01 seongyupyoo: and i'll post it on reddit again, get feedback

02:48:06 seongyupyoo: sholdn't take long

02:48:11 ThickAsThieves: for the 3rd problem you can simply make your escrow address publicly known

02:48:16 ThickAsThieves: or addresses

02:48:26 usagi: Oh nashx. Thats a good idea, if it works you will be rich.

02:48:30 ThickAsThieves: however if you escrow everything you slow it down

02:48:45 seongyupyoo: we don't escrow

02:48:52 usagi: So what your saying is, you are too legit to quit. Sounds good :)

02:48:56 seongyupyoo: it's person-to-person

02:49:16 ThickAsThieves: where are te collateral coins stored?

02:49:22 seongyupyoo: well, i really feel that something like nashx needs to exist for everyone's benefit

02:49:43 seongyupyoo: what collateral? there's no need

02:49:52 ThickAsThieves: maybe i need to read it better

02:49:59 seongyupyoo: yeah i think so... :)

02:50:07 usagi: May I give you some free advice yupyoo?

02:50:15 usagi: if I may call you yupyoo.

02:50:22 seongyupyoo: sure

02:50:28 seongyupyoo: my first name is seong yup

02:50:30 mircea_popescu: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=154089.msg1946133#msg1946133 lol

02:50:30 seongyupyoo: last name is yoo

02:50:42 usagi: Oh, I am used to last name first

02:50:59 usagi: I live here in asia you see.

02:51:24 maximian: Bitcoin has a mechanism for multisig transactions - destruction isn't necessary

02:51:32 maximian: https://blockchain.info/wallet/escrow

02:51:39 usagi: I assume you are from Korea? Have you been to Jeju island? I hear it is so beautiful.

02:52:03 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [SDICE] 1 @ 0.27500001 BTC [-]

02:52:26 usagi: Anyways, I don't like how you explain how you keep the destroyed funds, because until that moment you speak of the funds as "destroyed"

02:52:32 maximian: unless I've misunderstood what you're trying to do

02:52:51 usagi: so I would not try to justify how you do it, just state that you keep the funds "like a library fine" and leave it at that.

02:53:07 usagi: That's essentially what your doing. It's like a late fee charged at a video store

02:53:23 usagi: I don't think people are going to be concerned with that if your business takes off

02:53:54 mircea_popescu: alrighty, i'm off. cya tomorro.

02:54:27 deadweasel: gnight

02:55:25 seongyupyoo: bye

02:55:35 seongyupyoo: the problem usagi is that

02:55:53 seongyupyoo: if i just leave it as is, i have incentive to make fake accounts and go on a destroying spree

02:56:09 usagi: So, hire someone to audit your books.

02:56:42 usagi: That's what I did with my company TU.SILVER. I have a registered CA looking at the books, and a highly trusted community member providing operational oversight

02:56:46 seongyupyoo: well sending it back to blockchain is the best way as far as i can tell atm

02:57:04 deadweasel: usagi, how is tu silver doing?

02:57:15 seongyupyoo: i would prefer to have a system that is good by design than have to hire people to watch over it

02:57:16 usagi: People place far too much faith in the long and winding road of procedure when in the end it boils down to trust anyways.

02:57:46 usagi: deadweasel: it's going very well.

02:58:09 seongyupyoo: that's true, but i think in this case, it is important to gain validation of smart people especially since bitcoin community has been hurt with so many scams

02:58:32 usagi: The fact is silver went down, but compared to if we just leveraged pure silver on the way down, my investors made ovr 100% compared to the price of silver today

02:58:42 seongyupyoo: i feel it must pass the standard of community on reddit in order for it to be adopted and used widely by the whole global community

02:59:10 usagi: All I am concerned with now is providing 1:1 leverage with silver since I believe we are approaching a long-term bottom in silver priced in BTC

02:59:26 seongyupyoo: what does your business do?

03:00:09 usagi: i sell investment grade silver coins, like canadian maples, FMJ 1/2oz rounds, etc.

03:00:29 seongyupyoo: maximilian, escrow does not work for my model because i don't want to be in the middle of people handling their transaction because of USD

03:00:47 seongyupyoo: i see

03:01:43 seongyupyoo: what do you do kakobrekla?

03:02:44 usagi: deadweasel; total divs to date: 0.034788, sliver/btc/10 price is now .016 or so per unit, so, over 200% profit

03:03:12 deadweasel: i understand the last part.

03:03:32 deadweasel: hows your service?

03:03:43 seongyupyoo: i need to get going, thanks for all your helps guys. i don't know how this chatroom operates exactly, but i will be back :)

03:03:43 ThickAsThieves: i dont want to get into it but it should be said that usagi's bookkeeping did not stand up to a public audit

03:03:47 usagi: free shipping 7 days anywhere in the world

03:04:07 usagi: ThickAsThieves; there was no public audit.

03:04:36 ThickAsThieves: if anyone is interested talk to Deprived on the forums

03:05:10 usagi: Ahh, you mean when deprived stole our internal calculators and posted them on the forums? Those were internal company documents used to record buys and sells on bitfunder

03:05:35 ThickAsThieves: i have no interest in tusilver but i do trust deprived's abilities

03:07:20 usagi: If you want to know everything you need to know to build your own trading model, we use a coin and duty premium of $5 right now, which is less than the premium charged on the canadian maples we order exclusively from amagi metals

03:07:51 usagi: Beyond that we have a 2% markup and we use the actual rates we've paid for shipping in the price to factor that in

03:08:12 usagi: Now you know everything you need to know to calculate our value to within 5%, as our investment position has been disclosed.

03:08:48 dub: beyond (and before) that it is a fairytale that we wish you would stfu about

03:19:09 usagi: https://bitfunder.com/asset/TU.SILVER

03:19:32 tiberiusiv: what is it a silver fund?

03:19:55 tiberiusiv: now why would i want to own an industrial metal

03:19:58 usagi: Sort of. The idea is to keep the price of units at the cost of silver plus shipping and secure storage

03:20:27 usagi: You want my personal opinion? :p

03:20:36 tiberiusiv: why would i risk money with your junk fund when i can purchase silver futures instead?

03:20:47 tiberiusiv: offering me superior liquidity

03:20:50 tiberiusiv: and price

03:21:34 usagi: Well for one, when you try to get delivery in physical, you can be given a cash settlement by fiat

03:21:43 tiberiusiv: um no.

03:21:50 tiberiusiv: id recieve silver bars which are comex standard

03:22:03 usagi: really? I heard they were shortt

03:22:09 tiberiusiv: no they arent.

03:22:26 usagi: I sure hope not. :)

03:22:28 tiberiusiv: comex standard is 1000 oz bars

03:22:36 usagi: Do you have to pay a fee when you take delivery?

03:22:51 tiberiusiv: yea

03:23:00 usagi: Ahh.

03:23:05 tiberiusiv: but its not 30% above spot like your coins

03:23:13 tiberiusiv: and your fund is completely illiquid

03:23:17 usagi: Yeah we're sold out now and the market is setting the price.

03:23:25 tiberiusiv: + you have no reputation

03:24:10 tiberiusiv: yea again why would i go to you when there is more safer, liquid and easier to access options?

03:24:23 usagi: Only you can answer that question

03:24:26 tiberiusiv: who checks what silver your fund is backed by

03:24:48 usagi: Let me put it this way. We sold over 1,000 units into the market. Anyone is free to offer their units for sale.

03:25:04 usagi: If you feel the price is too expensive, perhaps they know something you don't know? I dunno. I don't understand it myself. I just sell silver.

03:25:25 usagi: The holders are public info on bitfunder, you can check it yourself. I own around 300 shares personally

03:25:28 tiberiusiv: no i merely stated there is much better options

03:25:38 usagi: There are, if you're merely concerned with price.

03:25:39 tiberiusiv: vs some internet nerd operating on thin margins out of a basement

03:25:49 tiberiusiv: like that coinabul clown

03:26:00 usagi: Yeah but you're a little clueless when it comes to investing in silver, aren't you?

03:26:08 tiberiusiv: no

03:26:15 tiberiusiv: silver is not an investment. it produces no income

03:26:20 usagi: Yeah you are :) First, you are speaking out about a fund you know zilch about.

03:26:20 tiberiusiv: its a speculation and its an industrial metal

03:26:40 tiberiusiv: there is no evidence silver acts as a protection in the event of a crisis

03:26:41 usagi: For one, a 1000 oz delivery contract is vastly different than a guartantee on your choice of 1/2 oz rounds

03:26:50 usagi: The coin premium on 1/2oz rounds is easily 20% or more

03:26:52 tiberiusiv: sure its also 30% cheaper

03:26:57 usagi: Which explains the entirety of the "30% cheaper"

03:27:00 tiberiusiv: and more liquid via futures

03:27:13 tiberiusiv: and what secure storage do you honestly have?

03:27:18 tiberiusiv: your homes basement

03:27:38 usagi: It is more liquid. We're small. That doesn't justify the "nerd", "junk fund", etc.

03:27:50 tiberiusiv: yea just like that jay guy from coinabul

03:28:07 tiberiusiv: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d46dFmAmnuc

03:28:08 usagi: You are clueless, really :) Like that dub guy.

03:28:19 tiberiusiv: lol who would send this fking vagabond loser any money?

03:28:21 usagi: Want another example? You haven't read our contract.

03:28:22 tiberiusiv: coinabul

03:28:34 tiberiusiv: your contract means nothing you have no capital reserves

03:28:44 tiberiusiv: secure storage is a apartment or basement to you

03:28:46 usagi: Seriously, you're being retarded. You want to talk shit about how I do things and you don't know we deal in small denomination coins and haven't read our contract

03:29:03 usagi: Then you want to call it a junk fund because it's less liquid than a 1000oz futures contract?

03:29:07 tiberiusiv: why would i store small coins with you?

03:29:12 usagi: Seriously, stop wasting my fucking time.

03:29:15 tiberiusiv: no i call it a junk fund becuase you are SMALL time

03:29:17 tiberiusiv: and broke.

03:29:33 tiberiusiv: why would anyone want to store silver maples with a clown?

03:29:42 tiberiusiv: that can vanish any day

03:29:50 usagi: Why would anyone want to discuss the market with a clueless fuck like you?

03:29:56 tiberiusiv: im not clueless

03:29:59 usagi: Yes you are.

03:30:02 tiberiusiv: you operate on tiny profit margins

03:30:06 tiberiusiv: and have no capital reserves

03:30:18 usagi: You're whining about how we're 30% more expensive than a futures contract because we deal in 1/2 oz coins.

03:30:21 usagi: That's ignorant.

03:30:27 usagi: That's laughable.

03:30:28 tiberiusiv: no im not

03:30:30 usagi: Is that the best you can do?

03:30:37 tiberiusiv: im argueing why would i go buy coins and have them stored with YOU

03:30:41 usagi: I don't care

03:30:44 tiberiusiv: vs buying them from any other dealer ANYWHERE

03:30:48 tiberiusiv: and storing them myself?

03:30:56 tiberiusiv: since its fking $10 pieces

03:30:58 usagi: We are already sold out. Look, I got stuff to do. Go read our contract.

03:31:02 usagi: Go read our recent reports.

03:31:06 tiberiusiv: no thanks.

03:31:08 usagi: I don't give a shit if you buy on the market or not. Bye

03:31:25 tiberiusiv: your like a bank for ultra poor bitcoiners

03:31:28 usagi: But I will say this. it's fuckups like you and deprived that are the entire source of my problems.

03:31:32 tiberiusiv: storing $10 silver coins

03:31:42 tiberiusiv: no you are the problem.

11:48:39 kakobrekla: what is it down

11:50:17 thestringpuller: i thought mp said "like writing a physics engine"

11:54:14 mircea_popescu: lol

11:55:05 mircea_popescu: it's kinda funny tho because unique among literate people americans have spent a century or maybe even two in the firm belief that their government is like... good etc. paying their taxes, trying to do what policeman says etc.

11:55:24 mircea_popescu: this is a strictly american phenomenon, unheard of anywhere else, from france to morocco and from russia to iran

11:59:53 kakobrekla: ;;later tell benkay is ok now

12:06:42 kakobrekla: jurov i dont remember what i found it

12:06:49 kakobrekla: but unix timestamp ftw

12:14:24 MJR_: what the fuck is wrong with people who make public policy?

12:15:14 MJR_: instead of actually just letting them pay the price that they say they would pay, we take the word for it and set a rate? how does that make any sense

12:15:25 MJR_: apparently the swaps market is also rigged like LIBOR

12:15:37 mircea_popescu: duh.

12:15:49 MJR_: well, that is not surprising

12:16:03 MJR_: but i just can't believe that no one actually does anything about it

12:16:08 mircea_popescu: http://bitbet.us/bet/329/btc-network-difficulty-tops-10-million-by-end/ funny how disputed this one ended up being.

12:16:31 mircea_popescu: somehow magically the bet submitter picked the exact spot where it'd be contentious.

12:16:48 MJR_: like...if i went to the supermarket, and they did a survey asking everyone there how much an orange would cost me...instead of letting us just bid on the orange or w/e

12:16:59 mircea_popescu: but this is more democratic.

12:17:12 mircea_popescu: and less capitalistic.

12:17:33 mircea_popescu: both these are good things. especially for people who need beatings, know they need beatings, want to get their ass beaten raw.

12:17:54 MJR_: lol

12:18:03 MJR_: its also funny cuz they are really DP'ing everyone

12:18:14 MJR_: let's cheat and fix the interest rate...

12:18:32 MJR_: and then let's cheat and fix the price it takes to switch from variable to fixed rate

12:18:39 mircea_popescu: then people want banks to like bitcoin

12:18:45 MJR_: how many other ways can you add corruption to a loan

12:19:00 mircea_popescu: yes dude, totally. they'll love bitcoin, where they have to come to me with that nonsense and be shown the door

12:19:05 mircea_popescu: they love this idea, pls moar.

12:19:38 MJR_: well..."banks" is not a great word...there are banks and then there are banks

12:19:52 MJR_: its not a monolithic structure...

12:20:02 mircea_popescu: this is very true.

12:20:15 MJR_: but, once you are in the club, then you have no worries

12:20:24 mircea_popescu: on the other hand, i'm already buffing my cameras and mics for that glorious moment five or maybe three years down the road

12:20:31 MJR_: hehehe

12:20:34 MJR_: gonna be fun

12:20:37 mircea_popescu: when random anon bank ceo/vp/etc comes to bitcoin assets to start w/e project

12:20:42 mircea_popescu: and i go are you in the wot ? gtfo.

12:21:03 mircea_popescu: come back 1 yr.

12:21:10 kakobrekla: hehe

12:21:14 kakobrekla: we all dreamin.

12:21:24 mircea_popescu: and he's gonna be all whiny and i'm gonna be all dude, we've had this interdweeb nonsense for 3 or 5 years by now.

12:21:28 mircea_popescu: stfu and do whart you're told.

12:21:54 mircea_popescu: and so he's going to dig up the old protest threads on btctalk and bitch about how im a gypsy racist

12:22:02 mircea_popescu: and then our victory will have been complete.

12:22:07 kakobrekla: lol

12:22:29 mircea_popescu: now don't any of you trolls quote this discussion then until after i'm done making teh banker my cockpuppet.

12:22:30 MJR_: hehehe

12:22:44 MJR_: ewwww, you want a banker for a cockpuppet?

12:22:51 mircea_popescu: metaphorically speaking.

12:22:51 MJR_: lol

12:22:55 MJR_: i know of course

12:22:59 mircea_popescu: i have a 10 foot cock, i can stick it into banker

12:23:00 mircea_popescu: a little

12:23:01 mircea_popescu: at the tip

12:23:45 mircea_popescu: speaking of bankers, anyone have any favorite burlesque performers ?

12:23:58 mircea_popescu: i'm going to do like l'oreal etc and have a mpex image chick.

12:25:41 pizzaman1337: this is why I have logging turned on

12:25:54 MJR_: HAHAHA

12:25:55 kakobrekla: :D

12:25:56 MJR_: yes

12:26:07 MJR_: are we going to have the website to archive all of this?

12:26:18 kakobrekla: yep

12:26:20 MJR_: hmmm...what if we put everything from bitcoin-assets into the blockchain?

12:26:27 pizzaman1337: no, bad idea

12:26:30 pizzaman1337: blockchain is too big already

12:26:37 MJR_: how future generations will judge us...

12:26:43 kakobrekla: i was trying to add it like yesterday or something but i got distracted

12:26:44 mircea_popescu: in fact this chan is growing faster than the blockchain

12:26:46 pizzaman1337: we don't want everyone dropping their crap in the blockchain

12:27:14 kakobrekla: irc is to blame

12:27:30 mircea_popescu: scam.

12:27:36 MJR_: i think it'd be hilarious, kinda like putting up posters of miley cyrus in the smithsonian

12:27:48 MJR_: or doodling on the constitution

12:27:48 mircea_popescu: MJR_ they've put seinfeld.

12:28:01 MJR_: lol

12:28:07 mircea_popescu: and in fairness, the blockchain isn't as bad as either miley cyrus or doodling.

12:28:11 mircea_popescu: we could tolerate it on our chan

12:28:26 MJR_: i just think that the whole idea of posterity is going away rather quickly

12:28:45 MJR_: we still have the illusion (some of us anyway) that the older generations were respectable

12:28:54 MJR_: our children will prob not have that illusion at all

12:29:04 kakobrekla: loool

12:29:21 kakobrekla: MJR_ is worried.

12:30:11 MJR_: srsly

12:30:27 MJR_: when your kids can google the things you tweeted as a teenager yourself...

12:30:29 mircea_popescu: o hey, twitter delivers! >> @PaulFish This is what a CEO / founder needs to focus on. This is it. http://t.co/KopwO3Udpy

12:30:40 MJR_: or even worse, if they see the pics you've posted of yourself

12:30:40 mircea_popescu: then people wonder why i have the time to irc and chase skirts.

12:31:03 mircea_popescu: MJR_ i think all future children will have to learn to be comfortable with the fact that their mother's goodies are public record.

12:31:30 MJR_: yep

12:38:00 thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: it's kinda funny tho because unique among literate people americans have spent a century or maybe even two in the firm belief that their government is like... good etc. paying their taxes, trying to do what policeman says etc. << I would attribute that to the general populace being brainwashed into believing revolution is bad

12:38:13 mircea_popescu: are you kidding ?

12:38:18 mircea_popescu: it all started with revolution.

12:38:35 mircea_popescu: pretty much the only people who believe revolution is good, other than romanians and who knows who else.

12:38:36 thestringpuller: isn't that funny though?!?!?

12:38:39 mircea_popescu: kinda

12:39:18 thestringpuller: Sure we protest, and "get uppity", but in general you're taught all through childhood "do as your told", "don't question authority".

12:40:26 thestringpuller: Maybe if everyone were more poor? Or perhaps there was truly a need to revolt? American's are very apathetic, and actually seem to "enjoy" the lethargy that arises from it.

12:40:29 mircea_popescu: that's normal, good and common.

12:40:45 mircea_popescu: people should do what they're told and not question authority in most cases.

12:41:03 thestringpuller: People should not be lazy and educate themselves :P

12:41:08 mircea_popescu: that's also

12:41:23 mircea_popescu: but the society where people don't do what they're told and question authority a lot ends up something like france

12:41:40 mircea_popescu: can't get a fucking train on schedule, even if the schedule lists hours only, no minutes.

12:42:24 thestringpuller: Yea, or you get Detroit.

12:42:29 thestringpuller: Have you ever been to Detroit?

12:43:12 MJR_: i've been to detroit

12:43:31 mircea_popescu: i avoided it.

12:43:34 thestringpuller: I think mircea_popescu would very well enjoy Detroit.

12:43:54 thestringpuller: You may need quite a few goons, and maybe a couple of drones...

12:45:03 mircea_popescu: you think ?

12:45:05 mircea_popescu: why ?

12:45:32 thestringpuller: Dude you survive in Bitcoin land which is like the virtual Detroit.

12:45:40 thestringpuller: Not only survive but thrive off it.

12:45:51 thestringpuller: Detroit is yours for the taking I'd think.

12:46:06 thestringpuller: You lived through the 90's Romanian revolution no?

12:46:11 mircea_popescu: yea...

12:46:35 mircea_popescu: what, i'm not affraid of "bad neighbourhoods" lol.

12:47:06 mircea_popescu: heck, i took teh coindelberg group through one here, it was funnay.

15:42:43 Cylta: If I understand correctly, asset "O.USD.C086T" is a call option from price of 86 usd per btc that will expire this month. Why people sell it, if price is already significally higher? and for what amount is this option?

15:43:24 ThickAsThieves: Cylta, you need to wait until new options are created tonight/tomorrow

15:43:32 ThickAsThieves: current prices are "glitched"

17:59:15 mircea_popescu: maybe if upside down ?

17:59:21 jurov: two cats at 10 o'clock

17:59:26 davout: i smell pussy

17:59:33 mircea_popescu: so wash.

17:59:47 davout: :3

17:59:51 mircea_popescu: lol

18:01:04 topace: ^ indeed he does

18:01:42 inhies: i read that as Tupac

18:01:44 inhies: =/

18:02:35 mircea_popescu: that's intentional

18:02:44 mircea_popescu: he's trying to start a personality cult

18:03:33 truffles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xxgRUyzgs0 one of my favorite songs

18:03:52 truffles: thanks to CM Punk..

18:36:55 hellohello: can someone help me?))

18:37:35 kakobrekla: hello hellohello

18:39:55 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: pirateat40 was a scammer.

18:40:03 BTCOxygen: He ran away with the bitcoins.

18:40:15 Technologov__: ??? I never ever heard of him.

18:40:30 Technologov__: How an investor be a scammer ?

18:40:36 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: Yeah because he ran away long ago.

18:40:38 Technologov__: Either he invests or he does not.

18:40:45 BTCOxygen: He is not an Investor.

18:40:57 BTCOxygen: He was running the project.

18:41:04 Technologov__: then what ? Which project ?

18:41:43 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: He was paying a high interest rate to users who invested with him.

18:41:55 Technologov__: aha. Typical ponzi.

18:42:02 BTCOxygen: yep.

18:42:30 Technologov__: There is no risk-free interest above government bonds. Really.

18:42:39 Technologov__: maybe 3% at most.

18:42:53 Technologov__: As a small investor, I know it for sure.

18:43:12 Technologov__: Anything above that takes risk (and time).

18:43:17 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: FYI, He ran away with 100,000 Bitcoins.

18:43:23 Technologov__: YAY !

18:43:32 Technologov__: huge amount

18:43:32 Cylta: Technologov__: goverment bonds are not risk-free.

18:43:46 BTCOxygen: I don't want to do the math its painfull.

18:43:51 Technologov__: Cylta, why not ? gvmt can simply print money to return cash.

18:43:58 Technologov__: so it is risk-free.

18:44:10 mircea_popescu: heya hellohello

18:44:24 Technologov__: gvmt has no reason to default on own obligations.

18:44:31 hellohello: hi

18:44:36 Cylta: Technologov__: ahhh, in this meaning... yes. but money can default (or start to huperinflate)

18:44:37 BTCOxygen: ;;calc 100000*[ticker --avg]

18:44:38 gribble: 13572660.0

18:44:51 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: ^^^ Here is the math.

18:45:08 Technologov__: (only if they use someone else's money, like in Spain... those PIGS - pirtugal, italy, greece, spain)

18:45:18 Cylta: BTCOxygen: for such amount you should take 30d avg...

18:46:33 BTCOxygen: Also IIRC he converted bitcoins to USD as soon as he recieved them.

18:46:41 BTCOxygen: So hes not that rich.

18:47:02 Technologov__: converting 100,000 BTC takes time...

18:47:21 assbot: [MPEX] [S.DICE] 1791 @ 0.00278789 = 4.9931 BTC [-]

18:47:34 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: He recieved in small chunks with a total of 100,000 before he ran away.

18:47:39 mircea_popescu: not if you're in the wot. took him all of a day oir w./e

18:48:21 jcpham: http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2013/04/butterfly/

18:48:41 jcpham: 2 more weeks!

18:48:43 jcpham: Meanwhile, Butterfly Labs is nowhere near full production capacity. The company says that its systems will continue to trickle out, with another 75 to 150 shipping in the next few weeks.

18:48:43 jcpham: In the meantime, if you have an questions about the Butterfly Labs machine, send us an email.

18:48:47 mircea_popescu: ahaha noway

18:49:10 Cylta: jcpham: i think I heared it somewhere already...

18:49:26 jcpham: wired says fuck you

18:49:30 jcpham: if you think it's fake

18:49:36 Technologov__: BTCOxygen, and I have a fear about similar fate with Avalon ASICs

18:49:36 Technologov__: that's why I wanna wait until ppl will start receiving first batch units

18:49:36 Technologov__: + dev boards

18:49:36 Technologov__: I _do_ believe the ASICs are real

18:49:44 Technologov__: because of this: http://bitcoin.sipa.be/

18:49:54 mircea_popescu: so when it turens out to be actually fakwe

18:49:59 Technologov__: But I highly doubt, that they will ship any.

18:50:00 mircea_popescu: i guess we all sue wired. this is good news.

18:50:16 mircea_popescu: conde nast actually has money, so...

18:50:20 mircea_popescu: i'm tickled pink over here.

18:50:34 Cylta: first batch of avalon already reached their customers, no?

18:50:40 mircea_popescu: yea.

18:50:44 Technologov__: More probably they will keep to themselves. (so their accepted BTC might be a scam)

18:51:13 jcpham: these guys at BFL are masters of hype

18:51:20 jcpham: i give them credit where it is due

18:51:37 mircea_popescu: jcpham its literally not that hard to do. get a journo dood to post nonsense ? 100 bux or w/e

18:51:42 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: There are 300 working units.

18:51:59 jcpham: but i mean like the company name is unassuming and disarming even "butterfly"

18:52:01 jcpham: wtf

18:52:06 BTCOxygen: I know 5-6 people personally who recieved their Avalon.

18:52:08 jcpham: it's all smoke and mirrors

18:52:25 jcpham: but they have produced a product

18:52:34 Technologov__: no. Only 3 developers IMO.

18:52:34 Technologov__: 1st batch Avalons did *not* reach end-users (buyers).

18:52:34 Technologov__: jcpham, I doubt if Avalon are better

18:52:35 Technologov__: where? At their company ?

18:52:35 jcpham: so i digress for now until it collapses

18:52:35 Technologov__: Show me 20 users, whom actually _received_ any ASICs.

18:52:36 Technologov__: I could not find not on forums and not in chat

18:52:53 Technologov__: But this graph: http://bitcoin.sipa.be/

18:53:04 Technologov__: Clearly says that ASICs are for real.

18:53:07 jcpham: i know of 3 actual avalons

18:53:16 jcpham: and the owners and i've spoken with them

18:53:19 jcpham: that's it

18:53:27 jcpham: my world is small though

18:53:59 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: I mean I know end-users.

18:54:12 BTCOxygen: There are 5 Avalons mining at my pool tho.

18:54:44 Technologov__: but the risk-reward is potentially so high, that it is worth the (limited) risk.

18:54:51 BTCOxygen: I think even imsaguy has an Avalon.

18:54:53 Technologov__: hmm, good to know.

18:55:25 mircea_popescu: BTCOxygen which pool is that again ?

18:55:32 Technologov__: BTCOxygen :)

18:55:48 BTCOxygen: http://btcoxygen.com

18:56:00 mircea_popescu: http://blockchain.info/pools ?

18:56:31 mircea_popescu: you telling me 5 avalons doesn't get you in the list ?

18:56:39 BTCOxygen: yes.

18:56:53 mircea_popescu: what's an avalon, 60gh ?

18:56:58 jcpham: 300GH/s barely gets blocks

18:57:02 jcpham: need moar

18:57:02 BTCOxygen: Also they don't list blocks properly.

18:57:17 BTCOxygen: 500GH/s

18:57:33 jcpham: how is 500 GH/s regular blocks?

18:57:36 jcpham: daily?

18:57:46 mircea_popescu: mk, otherwise : Top Hashers 63gh/s

18:57:55 mircea_popescu: seems there's one avalon there, and it does 80% or so of the pool ?

18:58:10 BTCOxygen:

18:58:15 BTCOxygen: check*

18:58:21 jcpham: 100-400GH/s was struggling to keep up a few months back

18:58:26 jcpham: from talking with pool ops

18:58:35 jcpham: be interesting to see how it paces now

18:59:18 Technologov__: Now, the hash rate:

18:59:18 Technologov__: <-- Cylta has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)

18:59:21 Technologov__: http://blockchain.info/charts/hash-rate

18:59:49 Technologov__: If this graph would be flat, I would buy a GPU, and not believe into ASIC lore.

19:00:07 Technologov__: But due to huge spike, I believe, that ASICs actually exist.

19:00:22 BTCOxygen: mircea_popescu: I see 3 Avalons.

19:00:35 mircea_popescu: where ?

19:00:52 BTCOxygen: 2 users pointing 1/3 Avalon.

19:00:59 MJR_: otc is too stressful

19:01:25 KRS-1: must be BFL

19:01:37 error4733: testing for 4 month

19:01:37 KRS-1: my friend has some of their fpga stuff

19:01:42 mircea_popescu: #1 1510 62186

19:01:42 mircea_popescu: #2 1160 14981

19:01:42 mircea_popescu: #3 1210 14272

19:01:46 KRS-1: nice hardware

19:01:52 mircea_popescu: seems to me only 1st can be an avalon. right ?

19:01:59 BTCOxygen: imsaguy: you here?

19:02:08 jcpham: he has one BTCOxygen

19:02:17 BTCOxygen: mircea_popescu: 1st is full Avalon.

19:02:35 BTCOxygen: The other 2 are 1/3 Avalon.

19:02:41 jcpham: imsogay owns an avalon

19:03:06 Technologov__: 1/3 avalon ? hmm... 20 GH/s ?

19:03:07 BTCOxygen: Also there a many users posting about their Avalon on bitcointalk.

19:03:09 Technologov__: hmm...

19:03:21 mircea_popescu: 1/3 avalon ?!

19:03:22 imsaguy: wut

19:03:23 mircea_popescu: who dioes this lol

19:03:38 BTCOxygen: Its a cgminer feature.

19:03:52 imsaguy: load balancing of cgminer

19:04:01 BTCOxygen: imsaguy: Yeah.

19:04:14 imsaguy: why did you highlight me?

19:05:00 mircea_popescu: he would like to have your babies.

19:05:00 BTCOxygen: imsaguy: How many Avalon users do you know?

19:05:16 assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 4 @ 1.2 = 4.8 BTC [+]

19:07:20 imsaguy: mircea_popescu: that is quite impossible

19:07:30 imsaguy: BTCOxygen: a few.

19:07:53 jurov: you have been accues of having onw yourself

19:07:57 jurov: *accused

19:08:39 ezdiy: owning an asic is accusation now

19:08:39 ezdiy: hmm

19:08:54 jcpham: my bad

19:09:07 jcpham: i tell lies on the internet for fun

19:09:11 jcpham: no one owns asic

19:09:29 Technologov__: some ppl do. proof ?

19:09:42 jcpham: facedesk.

19:09:49 Technologov__: jcpham, http://blockchain.info/charts/hash-rate

19:09:57 jcpham: that's just a chart

19:10:03 jcpham: those numbers could be made up

19:10:06 BTCOxygen: Anyone who clains that there are no Avalons in the wild should read this whole thread.

19:10:06 BTCOxygen: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137534.0

19:10:12 ezdiy: jurov: i think the rational explanation would be: give impression you want to get asics "out there so people dont lose trust" but in fact keep it private for as long as possible :)

19:10:17 Technologov__: going from 20 to 80 GH/s (in a MONTH !!!) can not be done via GPU.

19:10:29 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: yes.

19:10:30 jcpham: cpu mining botnet probably Technologov__

19:10:36 BTCOxygen: lol

19:10:41 jcpham: ;)

19:10:46 Technologov__: jcpham, LOL ! How u tried mining on CPU ?

19:10:58 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: rpcminr :P

19:10:59 jcpham: nah pool won't accept a share for shit

19:11:03 Technologov__: it is 100 times slower than GPU and 100,000 times slower than ASIC

19:11:03 jcpham: hurrrrrr

19:11:12 mircea_popescu: the conspiracy is strong in here.

19:11:30 Technologov__: CPU mining will cost you x100 more in electricity than Bitcoins you produce...

19:11:53 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: +100 for having that knowledge.

19:11:55 jcpham: i bet it's confusing talking to me.

19:12:00 jcpham: i believe asic exists. yes.

19:12:27 jurov: but really, i see it like either many asic users want to stay secret, or they are chinese not on btctalk

19:12:29 ezdiy: seeing is believing

19:12:38 jurov: or manufacturers mine themselves instead

19:12:52 jcpham: yeah the technology has made it like this

19:12:52 Technologov__: I would invest in ASIC company yes, but I dunno any.

19:13:04 jcpham: a device that makes thousands of bucks a day potentially is a security risk

19:13:06 ezdiy: jurov: even chinese guys reported selective vip treatment in regards to shipments from avalon

19:13:10 Technologov__: if BTCOxygen can find any, I might invest (@_@)

19:14:16 jcpham: http://mobile.news.com.au/national-news/killer-escaped-prison-after-being-issued-picture-of-master-key-to-all-locks

19:14:52 ezdiy: 404

19:14:57 ezdiy: but title sounds interesting

19:15:02 jcpham: damnit

19:15:18 jcpham: http://mobile.news.com.au/national-news/killer-escaped-prison-after-being-issued-picture-of-master-key-to-all-locks/story-fncynjr2-1226629878591

19:15:24 jcpham: i cut off the numbers

19:15:41 error4733: saw that before !! some ppl make key with picture on flicker !!

19:15:54 jcpham: pretty dumb for a prison

19:16:22 ezdiy: maybe it was recruitment practice of mossad

19:16:25 jcpham: not sure a single master key falls under byzantine failover

19:16:38 ezdiy: you know, sieve through thousands of retarded criminals to find one smart enough

19:17:13 jcpham: perfect storm, a jeweler, a criminal, and a book

19:19:01 BTCOxygen: Technologov__: Oh I found a very interesting thread for you.

19:19:02 BTCOxygen: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=141154.0

19:19:06 error4733: oz story lol

19:20:19 truffles: oz is goat prison show

19:20:38 BTCOxygen: Here one user posted pictures of his Avalon.

19:20:39 BTCOxygen: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=141154.msg1699573#msg1699573

19:21:17 BTCOxygen: Anyone who is not sure if Avalon will ship should read this thread from page 1 to 11.

19:21:19 BTCOxygen: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=141154.0

19:21:25 truffles: "This bird has flown" such a boss

19:21:59 Technologov__:

19:22:12 truffles: knew theyd ship em, not rich enough to buy em

19:22:47 Technologov__: truffles, u can invest in Avalon here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=184305.0

19:24:12 truffles: dont have any bitcoins

19:24:30 Technologov__: I did not had either until a week ago ^^

19:24:39 Technologov__: I bought them via Western Union.

19:24:46 Technologov__: at #bitcoin-otc

19:25:10 Technologov__: because my $3000 Rig PC generates only 0.001 BTC per day.

19:25:20 Technologov__: (on dual GPUs)

19:25:48 benkay: just two?

19:25:52 benkay: ;)

19:26:00 Technologov__: yeah, only 2.

19:26:07 truffles: those avalons remind me of this http://www.recipeapart.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/550x420xEniac-1.jpg.pagespeed.ic.BnzZ_VJDGR.jpg

19:26:49 Technologov__: and what ? I worked at Cisco Systems. There are *much* more cables there. I assure you.

19:27:35 Technologov__: any large company has a data-center those days.

19:27:44 truffles: knew ppl who just gushed over cisco systems..

19:27:53 benkay: ew gross owning your own data centers

19:28:02 benkay: great way to keep your sysadmin costs high

19:28:26 benkay: <-- cloud ops

19:28:59 truffles: say no to skynet?

19:29:27 benkay: meh

19:29:31 benkay: depends on how we code it

19:29:42 benkay: if we write it to minimize entropy, that would be cool

19:32:02 jcpham: You rated user diatonic on Mon Mar 11 14:26:46 2013, giving him a rating of 1, and supplied these additional notes: Attempted and pre-paid for 24 hour mining lease. Unforseeable circumstances changed our plans..

19:32:06 jcpham: wtf

19:32:20 jcpham: my paste is just doing it's own thing today

19:33:01 truffles: copy paste fail?

19:33:08 Scrat: ;;slap jcpham

19:33:10 gribble:

19:33:13 jcpham: mmmmhmmmm'

19:33:57 Technologov__: truffles, what I'm trying to say, is that you can invest even without having Bitcoins. Just must buy them.

19:34:25 Technologov__: And as any start-up investments, it brings you a certain amount of risk-reward.

19:34:52 truffles: if i were a rich person id have no problems investing ofc, alas im not

19:35:19 Technologov__: come on... it is all about mind-set. Don't needs to be rich ^^

19:35:43 truffles: isnt that why i would invest though

19:35:51 truffles: pile up my stacks

19:36:04 Technologov__: with what ?

19:36:09 truffles: stacks

19:36:18 Technologov__: That investment is a new company.

19:36:20 mircea_popescu: ;;ticker

19:36:20 gribble: BTCUSD ticker | Best bid: 137.02000, Best ask: 137.21000, Bid-ask spread: 0.19000, Last trade: 137.02000, 24 hour volume: 255394.07450224, 24 hour low: 120.08900, 24 hour high: 157.00000, 24 hour vwap: 135.59396

19:36:28 Technologov__: that will purchase and run Avalons for you

19:36:32 Technologov__: and send you proceeds

19:37:02 truffles: im not a potential investor sorry

19:37:10 Technologov__: so you don't need to waste time/lectricity/head-ache, customs bureaucracy and so forth

19:37:11 truffles: im here to discuss anything else if u wish

19:37:28 Technologov__: OK

19:37:47 truffles: even local dominatrix's if u wish

19:37:53 Technologov__: But isn't bitcoin-assets all about investing ?

19:38:01 truffles: not rly

19:38:07 mircea_popescu: investing != throwing money.

19:38:07 truffles: bunch of penis waving

19:38:17 Technologov__: about what ?

19:38:38 Technologov__: mircea_popescu, no one is throwing money. Just taking risks.

19:38:49 Technologov__: which is not the same

19:38:53 Cylta: mircea_popescu: is it illigal to buy\sell mpex accounts?

19:38:58 mircea_popescu: Cylta nope.

19:39:13 mircea_popescu: dubious from a security pov maybe

19:40:16 jcpham: i love it when doms throw money at me

19:40:18 Technologov__: I can take risk, but I like to be paid for it.

19:40:36 Guest00001: mp no way to change pgp key ?

19:40:43 Guest00001: if asked ?

19:42:05 truffles: i love it when doms throw money at me >>> go on

19:42:05 assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 1 @ 1.18 BTC [-]

19:42:15 jcpham: freak

19:42:22 truffles: haha

19:42:50 mircea_popescu: well you can register a new one and push to it.

19:44:09 error4733: just 30 btc

19:44:13 error4733: :)

19:44:50 truffles: whats the fee supposed to cover cost wise?

19:45:57 truffles: 30 seems extreme

19:48:44 benkay: truffles, how much does a seat on the NYSE cost?

19:49:02 benkay: and truffles, how is that related to their operating costs?

19:49:16 benkay: rhetorical questions. too much for you to afford, and it's not.

19:49:23 truffles: lol

19:49:40 truffles: i guess one must pay for a seat ..

19:50:03 truffles: seeing that this is bitcoin i thought things would be a bit different

19:50:24 benkay: they are different

19:50:29 benkay: you encrypt orders with gpg

19:50:38 benkay: print them out

19:50:44 benkay: fly them to romania on a carrier pigeon

19:51:29 asciilifeform: benkay: may as well ask how the cost of a NYC taxi medallion relates to the cost of the bureaucrat's pen that signs the paperwork.

19:52:46 mircea_popescu: fucking unfair comparison of the century. i hate taxi medallions.

19:52:58 benkay: except that the bureaucrat doesn't own the medallion organization, the mob does

19:53:09 ezdiy: truffles: vipcoin is confusing, but otherwise legit

19:53:12 benkay: but i think we're making the same points.

19:53:25 ezdiy: truffles: here is exact process how 30 bitcoins are turned into vipcoin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQBOw88ksXA

19:53:31 mircea_popescu: what's vipcoin even ?!

19:53:38 benkay: and yet vipcoin doesn't break top page google

19:54:01 truffles: sounded like a legit altcoin

19:54:03 Technologov__: BTCOxygen, ping

19:54:50 truffles: hope this song is good

19:54:58 asciilifeform: IMHO taxi medallions are a fair comparison. They, just as the MPEx fee, exist to keep the riffraff out.

19:55:24 ezdiy: truffles: seek 1:40 for teenage girl

19:55:44 truffles: assuming i like girls

19:55:50 asciilifeform: Were it not for medallions, NYC would probably look like Shanghai (rickshaws, etc.) I'm fine with that, but the rulers of the place evidently aren't

19:55:53 ezdiy: teenage is the important part

19:56:30 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you're neglecting the entire geographical monopoly angle.

19:56:47 asciilifeform: MP has said, in essence, that he doesn't want MPEx to become a Shanghai crawling with the equivalent of rickshaws.

19:56:52 asciilifeform: If I understand correctly

19:57:09 truffles: exclusive club

19:57:15 ezdiy: yet payola is the realm of criminal forums

19:57:17 ezdiy: so which is it?

19:57:17 ezdiy: :)

19:57:55 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't have a problem with rickshaws per se.

19:58:07 mircea_popescu: there's historically been small corps listed, it's not that.

19:58:48 truffles: i enjoyed it

19:59:04 ezdiy: well

19:59:06 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: we were talking about the 30 BTC user account fee, right? rather than listings

19:59:09 ezdiy: thats what vip is about

19:59:19 ezdiy: teenage girls, database management and company lunches

19:59:40 truffles: i just want the lunches

19:59:53 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform there's easy access for someone even with 0.1 btc. there's pts, there's brokers.

20:00:02 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [VTX] 12 @ 0.4248 = 5.0976 BTC [+]

20:00:08 ezdiy: truffles: no soup for you

20:00:29 ezdiy: i think mircea_popescu plays the soupnazi part well

20:00:57 benkay: no no no, the role of taxi medallions is to reduce the number of taxis on the street

20:01:00 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's like saying that "eTrade" with its $x/trade fees is a perfectly good alternative to a seat on the NYSE

20:01:22 mircea_popescu: well... would you say seat on nyse = london cab medallion ?

20:01:27 mircea_popescu: ezdiy ty

20:01:33 truffles: truffles: no soup for you >> soup nazi!

20:01:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sure

20:01:41 benkay: mircea_popescu would be only too happy to have more traders on his exchange, he just doesn't want to deal with the riffraff. he wants others to aggregate riffraff orders and place them on MPEx.

20:02:12 benkay: at least I think that's what he wants. open to correction on that count.

20:02:14 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform well then everything's everything and wtf.

20:02:31 mircea_popescu: benkay there was some pretty good discussion with pgp on this, lemme d ig

20:02:45 benkay: thanks mircea_popescu, feel free to pm it over

20:02:52 truffles: wants more money and people to agree with whatever he says

20:02:55 asciilifeform: benkay: riffraff interested in automated trading are more or less written out of the script. MP runs his own house how he likes, I'm fine with that. But why not call things by their real names.

20:03:37 benkay: asciilifeform what's the real name, then? medallions are a competition inhibitor, the exchange seat fee is just an "are you serious" check

20:03:41 benkay: it's not even that much money

20:03:56 ezdiy: asciilifeform: real names are bad for pr

20:04:38 truffles: its working

20:04:47 orkaa: http://i.imgur.com/Haw7Qy4.jpg

20:04:48 orkaa: haha

20:05:11 mircea_popescu: lmao

20:05:12 asciilifeform: benkay: the bureaucrats (in practice) own NYC, and charge whatever the hell they want for taxi licenses. a bar can charge for entrance. nothing wrong with that. what I'm unclear on is why the MP fee is a different kind of animal.

20:05:21 truffles: omg what is that orkaa!!!

20:05:24 ezdiy: orkaa: +1 for underage, -1 not naked

20:05:48 ezdiy: asciilifeform: thats how it works

20:05:54 orkaa: i saw this on tv some time ago, it's real :)

20:05:55 ezdiy: asciilifeform: in general its called vendor lock-in

20:06:25 truffles: orkaa add metzitzah b'peh and its complete

20:06:28 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is there a way i can run a cab in london just for a day ?

20:06:52 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: I imagine you could buy a medallion and sell it the next day, if you wanted to

20:07:01 asciilifeform: just like an MPEx account

20:08:03 mircea_popescu: can you actually sell those ?

20:08:13 benkay: probably

20:08:13 mircea_popescu: maybe the disagreement is borne out of me not understanding taxi medallions too well.

20:08:17 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: IDK about London, but in most places you can

20:08:27 mircea_popescu: afaik it's just this nonsense to keep people who would like to work off

20:08:31 mircea_popescu: sorta like a union

20:08:40 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: If I recall, most NYC drivers take out monstrous loans to buy medallions.

20:08:50 benkay: most don't even buy the medallions

20:08:54 benkay: others do

20:08:58 benkay: ibankers and whatnot

20:09:02 mircea_popescu: meh.

20:09:08 ezdiy: why people who dont understand basic market forces (if you have little competition, it makes sense to introduce artificial scarcity) want to trade on mpex?

20:09:27 mircea_popescu: ezdiy that absolutely isn't the rationale.

20:09:42 truffles: back him into a corner here

20:09:45 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: occam is cutting his veins though :)

20:09:58 mircea_popescu: i know.

20:09:58 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: i'm not dismissing it, whatever the reason its totally legit

20:10:06 mircea_popescu: the problem with cheapo/clueless investors is that they follow trends

20:10:16 mircea_popescu: this induces huge volatility which then wrecks assets.

20:10:19 asciilifeform: ezdiy: I'm not clamouring to buy an MPEx account for a penny, just objecting to the notion that the fee is somehow different from taxi medallions

20:10:27 mircea_popescu: i still think it is.

20:10:42 benkay: I agree.

20:10:46 benkay: not all customers are good customers.

20:11:08 benkay: and when money is involved as a core part of the business, many of your customers will in fact be bad customers without quality control.

20:11:09 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: you do that at the cost of huge spreads though

20:11:22 ezdiy: as long people are content with those, well why not

20:11:30 ezdiy: your idea of rate limiting the market holds water

20:11:57 mircea_popescu: well the problem with the "as long as people are content" argument

20:12:04 mircea_popescu: is that it's how we ended up with shit on tv.

20:12:20 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: How would you personally explain the apparent lack of competition to MPEx? Is it simply the fact that no one else has the "reputation capital" ?

20:12:23 mircea_popescu: people have this incredible ability to "be content" with anything. frog in boiling water experiment if you know it.

20:12:36 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: yup

20:12:39 ezdiy: boil em slow :)

20:12:39 truffles: reputation hhaha

20:12:50 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform it's a complicated web. no one has the competence, or the capital, or the reputation, or the connections, etc etc

20:12:55 mircea_popescu: they just feed into each other.

20:13:18 asciilifeform: truffles: I meant the banal fact that MPEx works as it says on the box, and none of the vaguely similar services proved to do the same

20:13:25 jborkl: Mp, has a stellar reputation. Unless you beleive asshole trolls and other people that are poor

20:13:55 mircea_popescu: i think people grossly misrepresent what all is involved.

20:14:54 ezdiy: clouds can be cleared up only if youre open about it

20:15:04 ezdiy: heck even bitcoinica eventually became opensource :)

20:15:08 mircea_popescu: lmao

20:15:39 ezdiy: so people are ok w/ bitfinex because its obvious what theyre dealing with

20:16:43 ezdiy: black boxes give room to a lot of speculation

20:16:46 asciilifeform: Ok, let's see if I understand: the 30 BTC is for keeping MPEx a market full of people who measure 1000 times "before cutting once." No trendoids, etc. Now let's say Warren Buffet (or somesuch) opens WBEx, charging 1 BTC.

20:16:50 ezdiy: as well as affiliate marketing schemes for vipcoin

20:16:53 asciilifeform: it fills up with trendoids

20:17:12 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform problem with your let's suppose is that it's nonsensical.

20:17:17 mircea_popescu: last thing he'd do is that.

20:17:28 mircea_popescu: he'd open a 1000 btc one first, he'd partner with me 2nd.

20:17:37 asciilifeform: ok, someone else with a bag full of BTC and a resonably good meatspace reputation, then.

20:17:56 mircea_popescu: but do you understand your own example ?

20:18:13 mircea_popescu: buffy is famous for having told his bh specialist

20:18:23 mircea_popescu: "if the next trade happens a year or so from now i'll be very happy"

20:19:03 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HIM] 2 @ 1.7051 = 3.4102 BTC [-]

20:19:07 asciilifeform: what I'm rather hazy on is how well MPEx would hold up against a "good enough" clone that meets the basic criterion of "not being an outright scam" (AFAIK none of the MPEx competitors have met this standard)

20:19:25 ezdiy: it holds pretty well

20:19:35 truffles: make em sweat

20:20:11 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform im not sure what the incentive is exactly. you'd finance a clone rather than buy shares because ... ?

20:20:13 jborkl: Wait, I trust MP - so who is this you are proposing? Just some random asshole with a website?

20:20:21 mircea_popescu: s.dice competition never materialised EXACTLY because s.dice listed.

20:20:27 mircea_popescu: once that happened it's impossible to finance a clone anymore.

20:20:49 truffles: impossible nice word

20:20:53 asciilifeform: jborkl: no, not a random arse, someone with a good reputation, hypothetically

20:20:58 ezdiy: people really underestimate network effects

20:20:58 assbot: [BTCTC] [ASICMINER-PT] 2 @ 1.2 = 2.4 BTC [+]

20:21:09 jborkl: there is no one with enough sense and enough money currently

20:21:18 ezdiy: sdice, mtgox and mpex are examples of such

20:21:21 jborkl: strike one and two

20:21:42 mircea_popescu: so srsly asciilifeform, let's say your reputation is enoug, and you have 10k btc to burn.

20:21:50 mircea_popescu: you decide it has to burn in this space.

20:21:50 asciilifeform: jborkl: true, just as there is no semiconductor plant owner with the good sense to drop some of his pocket change on building a million ASIC miners and running them in his own mansion.

20:21:52 ezdiy: jborkl: competition eventually overcomes the network effect resistance

20:21:56 ezdiy: jborkl: inb4 bitvegas ipo

20:21:59 mircea_popescu: a. you buy s.mpoe shares b. you try and make a competitor.

20:22:01 mircea_popescu: which is your pick ?

20:22:55 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: By this logic Pepsi ought not to exist, they should just re-sell Coke?

20:23:04 mircea_popescu: they do.

20:23:10 ezdiy: they do? :)

20:23:14 jborkl: a shitty clone of it

20:23:19 kakobrekla: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=188177.0

20:23:42 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: how do i buy cola in kfc :)

20:24:24 ezdiy: what if bitvegas started kfc

20:24:29 ezdiy: and bundled their cola with it?

20:24:42 ezdiy: would it make sense to invest in mpex then?

20:24:54 mircea_popescu: im unsure wtf bitvegas is.

20:25:14 mircea_popescu: o the team fortress thing ?

20:25:20 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: :)

20:25:34 ezdiy: its easy to measure growth

20:25:38 ezdiy: where it is stalled and where it is not

20:25:42 jborkl: anyway, what time exactly do options expire MP? in UTC?

20:25:54 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: there could be logical reasons for starting one's own "MPEx, with blackjack and hookers." Say I want to use evil altchains. And, AFAIK MPEx shares are non-voting, so it isn't that I could buy enough of them to make MP do this deed.

20:26:06 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform now you're talking angles.

20:26:12 mircea_popescu: originally discussion was straight clone.

20:26:33 mircea_popescu: if you mean start a competitor with an angle, it all boils down to whether the angle a. actually helps you and b. is good enouigh to push you

20:26:49 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: copycats work perfectly good

20:26:55 ezdiy: be the underdog and wait for the uber dogs demise

20:27:01 ezdiy: lets see ... gblse?

20:27:02 ezdiy: :)

20:27:06 truffles: thats impossible

20:27:09 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ok, let's stick to clones. Picture Bill Gates, a hypothetical BGEx with a 5 BTC fee.

20:27:23 mircea_popescu: ezdiy again people underestimate what goes on in the background.

20:27:24 ezdiy: truffles: not by market forces, but by something stupid

20:27:40 mircea_popescu: asciilifeform and he's doing this on pgp ?

20:27:53 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7513 @ 0.00070108 = 5.2672 BTC [+]

20:27:54 truffles: was being silly :)

20:27:59 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: sure, I agree, this is a stretch of the imagination. but let's imagine.

20:28:11 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: yes, pgp.

20:28:33 mircea_popescu: ok this i wish to see.

20:28:36 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: AFAIK you don't have a monopoly on PGP

20:28:45 ezdiy: asciilifeform: you're wasting your time, btw

20:28:47 mircea_popescu: so bill gates is making a mpex clone complete with pgp and everything.

20:29:01 mircea_popescu: +1000 points for me for being so cool. will any of the big people switch to him ? maybe so. maybe not.

20:29:12 mircea_popescu: i can probably exit to jpm for a billion at that point anyway.

20:29:20 ezdiy: mp stands, but might possibly fall, because mircea_popescu is uber consistent in everything

20:29:34 ezdiy: which also means you cant convince him by make believe arguments

20:29:37 mircea_popescu: at which poin tyhe deal becomes jpmpex vs bgex

20:29:41 mircea_popescu: and i gues jpmpex wins

20:29:47 mircea_popescu: i won't be there to see it likely, but anyway.

20:30:01 ezdiy: asciilifeform: the general term is jerk irl :)

20:30:15 truffles: i think he'll last a while, he has minions

20:30:21 ezdiy: yep

20:30:25 ezdiy: the bitch army is impressive

20:30:25 ezdiy: :)

20:30:28 asciilifeform: ezdiy: I think you misunderstand. I'm not trying to convince MP of anything in particular. Just playing out a thought experiment: what would happen if MPEx actually had competition.

20:30:31 ezdiy: jurov: ohai!

20:30:35 truffles: yep im impressed

20:31:25 ezdiy: truffles: rpietila took it from the other end

20:31:33 ezdiy: mp first build something tangible, then the bitch army

20:31:47 asciilifeform: kakobrekla: what on earth is a Bitcoin Supernode?

20:31:54 kakobrekla: yes!

20:31:55 ezdiy: rpietila is apparently starting with the bitch army and maybe turn out to be not elaborate troll and come up with something

20:32:07 mircea_popescu: ezdiy it's kinda funny to compare "pic of mp with people" vs "pic of foreveralone btctalk dud"

20:32:15 truffles: do u know he put mircea_popescu on ignore right after we were going to "debate" something he posted our comments on his blog then i refused to subscribe, right around the time he paid people to troll SomthingAwful forums

20:32:18 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: indeed :)

20:32:27 truffles: he =mp

20:32:27 kakobrekla: rpietila had too much cocaine

20:34:11 ezdiy: so much shame goat burned the cover

20:34:24 ezdiy: that thread was so full of gold

20:34:35 mircea_popescu: totally.

20:34:39 truffles: link?

20:34:50 mircea_popescu: goat gets confused in troll gold threads.

20:35:30 kakobrekla: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=174620.0;all

20:36:05 truffles: thanks kakobrekla

20:36:07 ezdiy: still

20:36:11 ezdiy: interesting phenomena

20:36:18 ezdiy: bitch armies, whiteknighting and all

20:36:25 ezdiy: because those are irrelevant

20:36:32 kakobrekla: i quote

20:36:33 kakobrekla: Think of this as a book, or at least as a quality blog, to be enjoyed with quality wine and cigars in candle light.

20:36:34 ezdiy: important is only network effect

20:36:42 kakobrekla: comedy central in that setting?

20:36:59 ezdiy: take mtgox, fe, everyone agrees their stuff is sub-par

20:37:08 ezdiy: no bitch army, everybody hates magicaltux's guts

20:37:13 ezdiy: yet its the biggest

20:37:44 mircea_popescu: kakobrekla lol candlelight and screen. sounds legit

20:37:56 ezdiy: kakobrekla: yup, thats how i understood it

20:38:10 ezdiy: i mean, the guy clearly stated to be not taken seriously

20:38:11 ezdiy: so hey

20:38:22 ezdiy: and then gives free advice of mid-range silver vendor

20:38:28 ezdiy: i'm ok with that

20:39:01 kakobrekla: oooo

20:39:02 kakobrekla: http://static.iltalehti.fi/uutiset/13549021_uu.jpg

20:39:04 kakobrekla: this delivers

20:39:25 kakobrekla: imma gona print a shitload of qr codes

20:39:28 mircea_popescu: lmao

20:39:34 kakobrekla: stick it allover me

20:39:53 jcpham: i'll take pics of your qr codes and baby giraffe

20:40:02 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [VTX] 2 @ 0.4781 = 0.9562 BTC [+]

20:40:08 jcpham: oppulence

20:41:18 truffles: important is only network effect >> i dunno hypocrisy is annoying

20:41:34 ezdiy: truffles: what do you mean?

20:42:01 truffles: one set of behavior is okay for some people and diff rules apply for others

20:42:33 ezdiy:

20:42:35 ezdiy: no, still nothing

20:43:12 ezdiy: truffles: world is full of hypocrisy

20:44:47 truffles: to be feigned a bit in "polite society" id hope :)

20:45:18 ezdiy: well, there is that thing

20:47:09 truffles: i have no quality wine and cigars in candle light maybe i should stop reading

20:47:27 ColdHardMetal: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApraDvGtZTsbdGxTZGxreXhHUTRCM0pmakNpU3NkQmc#gid=0

20:47:38 ezdiy: truffles: being a bitch means you strongly defend your cult figure while youre subject ot heir will

20:48:03 mircea_popescu: i thought it just meant being annoying.

20:48:05 ezdiy: truffles: being polite just means not giving a crap about things you cant change

20:48:08 ezdiy: for example, opionons

20:48:16 truffles: hehe

20:48:18 ezdiy: mircea_popescu: from the pov of dictator, it is :)

20:48:22 truffles: i like to hear them though

20:48:38 mircea_popescu: lolwut

20:48:56 ezdiy: subjects are always annyoing

20:48:58 ezdiy: you know

20:48:58 truffles: i think those ppl have tunnel vision, they wont get it

20:49:04 ezdiy: they have their stupid feelings and such

20:49:12 mircea_popescu: i dunno what dictators you've been hanging out with...

20:49:34 truffles: although mp certainly wont if he's got me on ignore hehe

20:49:49 ezdiy: cognitive dissonance is to be cherished

20:49:53 ezdiy: to manipulate

20:49:58 ezdiy: but its uber annoying at the same time

20:50:51 ezdiy: truffles: i think mp is strongwilled enough to just feign ignore

20:51:01 ezdiy: curiosity and strong will results just not responding :)

20:51:05 truffles: i doubt that

20:51:34 truffles: im just annoyed we couldnt "debate" before the ignore ...

20:52:57 ezdiy: truffles: better come up with some plot

20:53:02 ezdiy: to ignite the nuclear war again

20:53:08 truffles: haha

20:53:11 ezdiy: between soupnazi and kim jong un of finland

20:53:37 truffles: im focused on other times so its not a big deal

20:54:02 mircea_popescu: this is making so little sense...

20:54:02 truffles: im not a schemer or scammer

20:54:15 saulimus: why finland?

20:54:26 mircea_popescu: http://polimedia.us/dtng/c/src/134491269729.jpg have some water buffalo.

20:54:27 ezdiy: its the new bitcoin supernode

23:02:40 mod6: I liked him better when he only mentioned Bitcoin once in a while.. when he got all "bitcoin jesus" on everyone I'm like, you're not helping, you're just pushing people into something they don't understand yet.

23:03:39 jurov: besides, it was already pegged to $5 some 9-10 months ago. but then pirate vanished.

23:03:58 jurov: dunno if fed can do a better job than pirate

23:12:28 mod6: I mean, if anything, why not just peg like 1 satoshi to a certain unit of gold? Then it would have a sudo-peg via gold, correct?
