13:12:34 funkenstein_: nice visualizations, too bad underlying numbers are completely unverifiable

13:13:43 funkenstein_: 166500 tons, that's four significant digits. Pretty good eh? I know what all people ever alive have done to within a basis point

13:13:57 adlai: funkenstein_: you mean the national gold holdings? yeah those are at the very least constantly changing

21:10:18 punkman: "Would-be dealers are subjected to a verification process by the administrators before becoming “authorized” on Telegrass in an effort to block undercover police from entering the system. As part of the check, they have to send a photo of their ID card to administrators, who do a background check"

21:10:46 punkman: "As part of that process, the dealer usually asks the client to send him a selfie, a photo of his ID card and, in certain cases, also a photo of a salary slip."

21:10:56 punkman: I can't even

21:11:08 punkman: adlai might have to explain this to me

21:11:21 adlai: oh, been waiting a while for this one to crystallize/drop (cross out inappropriate metaphor appropriately): https://arxiv.org/abs/1709.08881 pdfless horror at http://archive.is/MWl2h

21:11:40 adlai: ohai punkman , i've heard much of "Telegrass". the best thing about it is the name.

21:12:10 *: adlai is disqualified from using - deleted fb profile long before KYC got redecentralized

21:13:15 adlai: if hearsay is reliable, people who wish to circumvent such inconveniences outsource KYC to their social mediaries

21:15:53 punkman: social mediaries?

21:17:30 adlai: eg, q: "did you like my post about ICOs?" a: "fb is cancer" q:"ok let me read it to you" a: "cute, satire from the right perspective"

21:18:35 adlai: or, me: "blablabla" them: "if you rephrase that in hebrew, i'll publish it to fb in your name" me: "no"
