mod6: benkay_: Ahh, I've read more now on the urbit. I see what you mean by the 9-times thing as temporary. And after reading Datskovskiy's comments it's interesting that it was put in to begin with.
mod6: has anyone had trouble with the urbit terminal being like really slow?
mod6: I rebuild my sub just a bit ago because of this (http://www.urbit.org/2013/10/06/nicu.html), seems to be a bit more responsive.. but not what i would expect.
mod6: (was worse before the update it seems to me... but still laaags a bit.)
jurov: should be compiled with -O99 -funroll-all-loops
mircea_popescu: mod6 well when the whole planet is one computer...
mircea_popescu: probably some dolphin somewhere upset the flow of chi
mircea_popescu: (TLDR: to keep using Urbit, delete all your pre-10/6 data, git pull the source again, make clean, make, and start over. Your destroyers and tickets will keep working. No, this will not keep happening, though it may happen once or twice again.) << preserved for futurosity.
mod6: yeah, that was pretty interesting. like the first day I look into it, i have to blow everything away and start over.
mircea_popescu: well at least 11k people have watching and thus therefore everyone knows the guy's name and admires his work or how did it go.
mircea_popescu: but anyway ; satoshi forked btc too. it happens
mod6: jurov: you trollin'?
mod6: mircea_popescu: yeah, i recloned the repos and rebuilt. works fine. it's early in the project so, yeah shit happens.
mircea_popescu: mod6 in other news, http://trilema.com/2013/so-this-urbit-thing/#comment-95441 haskelites hate it.
mod6: jurov: -funroll-all-loops
mod6: Perform the optimization of loop unrolling. This is done for all loops and usually makes programs run more slowly. `-funroll-all-loops' implies `-fstrength-reduce' as well as `-frerun-cse-after-loop'.
mod6: so yah, 9/10
mod6: :P
jurov: mod6 yeah trolling... couldn't resist as long-time gentoo user :)
jurov: au! don't tell me you *did* recompile it?
mircea_popescu: violence is not the loop.
mod6: yeah, it seems that this guy Curtis Yarvin kinda goes against the grain with this one. im not a haskell guy or what not, so I'm not real sure what to think just yet.
mod6: haha, yeah.
mod6: im a dumbass for listening to you
mircea_popescu: well i guess i get to use kako's bash for the first time ever.
mod6: i tried to find a solution to this problem on the fuckin google groups thing and there was a thread about it.
mod6: but it wasn't helpful what-so-ever.
mod6: maybe its just a pile of shit

mircea_popescu: because the guy had all the btc in the cloud and lost the instance.
mod6: yeah haha.
mod6: i wanna say that happened a few times even.
mod6: *poof*
jurov: but afaik urbit has everything versioned
mircea_popescu: "<mircea_popescu> hi all." < i said something on #urbit.
mircea_popescu: which from what i gather is NOT run on urbit ?
mod6: haha, nice. i just joined in over there a few mins ago too.

mod6: i figure, maybe they can help my urbit n00bness until i get my sealegs.
jurov: these ships...it's a PONZI
mod6: are you getting good with hoon, jurov
mod6: ?
jurov: no only read these docs and filed it for later

mod6: its like i wanna go down this rabbit hole and figure this thing out, but I don't think im smart enough or something.
mod6: the guy says, "urbit will always run on top of unix." but d00d also wants this to surpass *nix at some point...
mircea_popescu: mod6 http://trilema.com/2013/so-this-urbit-thing/#comment-95448 << average people have trouble FINDING IT
mircea_popescu: i think you may be smart enough.
mod6: (Chapter 1.7): If a real OS runs on the bare hardware and is preemptive, it’s clear that Arvo is not a real OS and will never be one. It will always run on Unix. Of course in a sense it comes to bury Unix, but also to praise it - to imitate it - and even to surpass it.
mod6: Unix today is ancient, bloated and debilitated, but its historic greatness is eternal. Comparing Unix to other OSes of its time is comparing Shakespeare to other playwrights of his time.
mod6: But, ya know, times change. How do we surpass Unix? We’ve got two words for you - typed pipes!
mircea_popescu: actually marlowe was not that bad
mircea_popescu: this is an argument to ignorance
mod6: So far, and i've only spent a few hours on it, but I'm so hoplessly lost on hoon, that i don't see how this could be more useful than unix at this point.
mod6: i mean, it needs unix to run to begin with... so wtf
mod6: at somepoint it'll have to run out of a chip directly or some other interpreter or interface to wholly replace unix

mircea_popescu: mod6 wasn't implying it's a bad thing, on the contrary
mircea_popescu: gotta discuss where the brainz are.
mod6: ah, ok :)
daybyter: but it's easier to shutdown servers than mobiles...
mircea_popescu: is it ?
blastbob: depends..
mod6: for instance, in current form, urbit does key-gen right off the start. i'd hesitate to launch an instance with that software thats native (unless rooted and running something like cyanogen -- even then do we trust that either?)
mod6: and besides do we trust chip makers any more either?
mircea_popescu: mod6 im listening to this and pasting in the nsa "to do" list :D
mod6: haha
mod6: i suppose that something like urbit could actually live inside of other software eventually as some sort of embedded system. or if it ever took the leap to native hardware, it could run on some sort of FPGA or pre-set asic chip.
mod6: someone needs to write a network stack for it.

benkay_: mircea_popescu: after I write this Nock interpreter and then learn Hoon...
pankkake: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/oct/07/fbi-bitcoin-silk-road-ross-ulbricht still a failure, why would they know he has those
ozbot: FBI struggles to seize 600,000 Bitcoins from alleged Silk Road founder | Technology | theguardian.c
ThickAsThieves: they dont know
ThickAsThieves: isnt that amount extrapolated from their guess of commissions on their guess of all sales to date?
jurov: what, it's 600k now?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves yup.
pankkake: oh, maybe
mircea_popescu: jurov the point about how im lolling at them for not making any forfeitures this turn around burned.
mircea_popescu: so they're trying :D
ThickAsThieves: the article also notes how since the fbi has his wallet, the coins cant be spent
ThickAsThieves: lol
mircea_popescu: herp
mircea_popescu: lmao.
benkay_: yea superherp
mircea_popescu: the state is in for a rude awakening.
mircea_popescu: it will happen ion about one more week
jurov: i'm waiting out for revelation how much of these bitcoins they gave him
mircea_popescu: m,aybne two
mircea_popescu: at which point, watch the bitcoin foundation go in overdrive.
benkay_: mircea_popescu: you refer to the debt ceiling?
ThickAsThieves: i'm still hoping that Ross isnt even the guy'
ThickAsThieves: would be so fun
lewicki: If the FBI confiscated all copies of the private key, then maybe.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves here's a simple plan : pay someone a little coin to be the fall guy.
mircea_popescu: they can't prosecute you for something they already convicted someone else for.
ThickAsThieves: i just find it hard to believe that DPR would be this sloppy
ThickAsThieves: he KNEW he would get arrested one day
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15037 @ 0.00084201 = 12.6613 BTC [+] {5}
ThickAsThieves: so he MUST have a plan
mircea_popescu: he didn't plan on tor being a surveillance tool.
lewicki: public defender count?
mircea_popescu: the rest is "parallel construction"
pankkake: mircea_popescu: that wasn't how he was arrested at all so…
jurov: ThickAsThieves: what should he do? lend them to theymos for greater drama?
ThickAsThieves: how did fbi get the server copy anyway?
pankkake: and why would criminals crime if they thought they couldn't get away with it?
pankkake: he used a vpn to connect to the server
pankkake: and they asked the vpn
ThickAsThieves: and why was he living in a $1000 apartment?
lewicki: Even if the FBI only found out where the coins were stored. Eventually those coins would have to be used somewhere that could be "backtraced". Those mixers are not infallible
pankkake: not everyone needs to live in a mansion with two pools
ThickAsThieves: an apartment tho?
mircea_popescu: lewicki yes, yes they are.
ThickAsThieves: like why live witha roommate
pankkake: yes, that is weird indeed
lewicki: at what point do you say, 20...30..80 million is enough
mircea_popescu: because no friends ?
ThickAsThieves: so hang out at starbucks
ThickAsThieves: i dunno
pankkake: when I'm a trillionnaire I'll still live in a small appartment, but with people? no way!
ThickAsThieves: doesnt make sense
ThickAsThieves: if you have that much money
ThickAsThieves: you leave the US too
mircea_popescu: he didnt have that much money.
mircea_popescu: he struggled for three weeks to move a kg of coke.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 6 @ 1.3072 = 7.8432 BTC [-] {3}
pankkake: he could simply like where he lives
mircea_popescu: this is the definition of small timer.
pankkake: indeed that thing is weird
pankkake: why would the megaboss of the internet mafia do that?
mircea_popescu: the average car salesman sells more worth of car a day.
mircea_popescu: likely for a better cut, too.
ThickAsThieves: there will def be more to thi story
pankkake: a drug dealer is usually more honest than a car salesman though
mircea_popescu: my bet is that as the feds get enough of being humiliated it quietly drops into oblivion.
benkay_: it's not unbelievable that the nerd running the SR show would know nothing about actually moving product
ThickAsThieves: wasnt really his job anyway
mircea_popescu: why did he get involved is what i want to know.
mircea_popescu: it's so stupid this shit. im torn as towhether to do a write-up of why it's stupid and in the process prove i understand the drug trade all too well or just stfu.
benkay_: oh please do
ThickAsThieves: probably just a whim, coder says oh i can make a thing!
ThickAsThieves: then makes it live
ThickAsThieves: and just kinda rolls with it
benkay_: then btctalk can add drug dealer to the list of epithets they spit
mircea_popescu: heh.
ThickAsThieves: isnt the story that there is an original and a 2nd owner?
pankkake: the issue is that he wasn't nerd enough. he made technical mistakes, and then wasn't paranoid enough, thought he has the street smarts or whatever
ThickAsThieves: i find that not believable
ThickAsThieves: technical mistakes sure, but not paranoid enough?!
ThickAsThieves: he aided in a drug supermarket
Apocalyptic: he posted under his real name...
ThickAsThieves: how could he not be paranoid
Apocalyptic: of course he wasn't paranoid enough
ThickAsThieves: allegedly
ThickAsThieves: maybe Ross is the original guy
ThickAsThieves: and realized quickly he was too deep
ThickAsThieves: and that he wasnt paranoid enough at the start
ThickAsThieves: so he sold it
ThickAsThieves: and now that guy is out there

mircea_popescu: o hey. what's he say ?
jborkl: There was 3 of them, I got to see renderings that are not published yet- talked for about 1.5 hours- I also told them the advantages of listing on MPEX
mircea_popescu: 3 cointerras ?! how many drinks did you have ? :D
mircea_popescu: anyway, article incoming i trust ?
jborkl: yes and I have access to preferred pricing for interested parties
jborkl: I will put a article in a little while
mircea_popescu: lol you're a distributor nao ?
jborkl: no
dexX7: jborkl: where do you publish your article?
jborkl: bitcoinnews.com - I will put it up in a hour or so
dexX7: ty
jborkl: I asked them why they listed with Pico and not MPEX
mircea_popescu: what'd they say ?
jborkl: What they said made sense, for the US- Pico is a holding co and buys a block from them. You actually buy Pico holding and not Cointerra
dexX7: wait, the listing there is legit?
mircea_popescu: dexX7 im about as amazed myself.
pankkake: yeah https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=307042.0
pankkake: communication is terrible though
ThickAsThieves: ridiculous...
mircea_popescu: tapeout 28nm... so what's this, march ?
jborkl: The listing at Pico is Cointerra, I can tell you that
jborkl: I asked him point blank
ThickAsThieves: still ridic
jborkl: They say, shipping is December - Remember I am not promoting or pumping anything- just telling you what I went by and saw
ThickAsThieves: thats not why i'm saying it's ridic
pankkake: so do they really plan to mine too?
dexX7: well. i'm still not 100 % convinced. tytus is the one who created the listing, that's no new info, so i'm not surprised that he confirms the listing.
pankkake: because the pico guy said "maybe or maybe not"
mircea_popescu: well that's good, cause I can make a bet,.
jborkl: They said they will have a datacenter in Dallas, TX
mircea_popescu: o wait, they don't sell units ?
jborkl: yes they do
pankkake: they do, and their initial plan was to do only that
jborkl: they will have hosting (3rd party) and selling units
mircea_popescu: mkay.
jborkl: The units I saw (final design I think) has liquid cooling standard - has 2 900 w power supplies and draws at the wall approx 1300
ThickAsThieves: whats their customer protection plan?
jborkl: did not ask that
jborkl: I do not believe on protection plans excpt condoms
ThickAsThieves: it's not a matter of belief
jborkl: I did not ask that question
pankkake: https://cointerra.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200046263-Price-Protection
ozbot: Price Protection – CoinTerra
jborkl: I asked almost everything else
ThickAsThieves: not the best plan :/
jborkl: Chips are supposed to be from (700 grade a to 500 grade d) I assigned the a-d values myself
pankkake: but you can get a better deal, it seems: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=67547.msg3226890#msg3226890
ThickAsThieves: lol that deal sucks too
ThickAsThieves: 30% per month?
pankkake: oh, right, I confused thirty and thirteen
ThickAsThieves: "I can't wait to see where share price goes once we list on a new exchange, and as we get closer and closer to delivery"
jborkl: I was told the deal I could get, and I think I could do a little better even
ThickAsThieves: only one protection plan makes sense, discount = diff increase
ThickAsThieves: or hashpower
pankkake: bfl would be bankrupt!
ThickAsThieves: shouldnt they be?
Au-WireBeard: Im sure theyve drafted notice
pankkake: I'm not sure it would be better for customers - they would get nothing
jborkl: If they actually make this chip, BFL is screwed (like they were not before?)
ThickAsThieves: pankkake BFL customers are already in that spot no?
ThickAsThieves: many of them
ThickAsThieves: the point here isnt to drive the company into the ground
pankkake: yes, still half screwed is better than fully screwed?
ThickAsThieves: it's to force them to name a real release date
ThickAsThieves: and sell at a real price
pankkake: jborkl: well, they have preorders, so maybe only for new orders
assbot: [BTCTC] [FN] [DMS.SELLING] 25 @ 0.0041 = 0.1025 BTC [+]
pankkake: maybe customer protection should be provided by a third party

ThickAsThieves: the problem being addresses is that these companies are putting all risks onto the customers
ThickAsThieves: addressed*
pankkake: what I have in mind is that the companies finance the thing, but it's a pool; that way customers can feel safe even if the companies go bankrupt
ThickAsThieves: and what of the insurance company?
ThickAsThieves: they only profit if things ship on time
ThickAsThieves: otherwise they die
ThickAsThieves: the equation must put risk on the manufacturer
pankkake: the manufacturer pays the insurer, and gets its money back if it ships on time?
ThickAsThieves: no escaping that
mircea_popescu: how;s the manufacturer paying the insurer,
kakobrekla: preorders allow for that risk to be mitigated
kakobrekla: people themself allow this to happen to themself
pankkake: yes, the how is an issue :)
mircea_popescu: wjhen 99% of cases manufacturer can't afford a 100 btc bitbet ?
mircea_popescu: that'd allow the customers to buy insurance, at a market-established fair premium
mircea_popescu: but... ask them about it.
pankkake: the bet is all-or-nothing though
dexX7: maybe you should work on a better promotion/presentation. it is indeed a good idea, but "wtf is bitbet, why is this relevant"
assbot: [BTCTC] [BITVPS] 452 @ 0.001589 = 0.7182 BTC [+] {2}
ThickAsThieves: it doesnt matter
ThickAsThieves: to participate is to put attention on the risk
ThickAsThieves: they dont want that
ThickAsThieves: since the risk is all yours
ThickAsThieves: 100btc is nothing
ThickAsThieves: doesnt preclude customers from being ripped
lewicki: tat, eta on video of presentation?
ThickAsThieves: 2 weeks
mircea_popescu: right-o.
pankkake: what can you do if your ETA is really two weeks? say 14 days?
pankkake: 2.00001 week?

nubbins`: but the joke will be on you!
ozbot: BitBet - Cointerra will deliver in 2013
pankkake: the good thing about that rising difficulty, is that now bitcoin = litecoin
ThickAsThieves: the only thing litecoin has left going for it is for a major exchange to support it
ThickAsThieves: otherwise it's usless
ThickAsThieves: it goes down when btc goes up
dexX7: http://bitbet.us/bet/528/activemining-will-be-profitable-for-most-investors/ ??
ozbot: BitBet - ActiveMining will be profitable for most investors
ThickAsThieves: and down when btc goes down
dexX7: this bet is closed?
pankkake: there are some fiat exchanges supporting it. but it's just one step anyway, so why would it change that much?
dexX7: oh
dexX7: nvm
ThickAsThieves: "Should btct.co disappear before that date or should proof emerge of btct.co failure to pay any liquid and exigible debt to any investor this bet resolves as No."
dexX7: lol
dexX7: yes
pankkake: eh… that certainly wasn't my intent when creating the bet
pankkake: it was on BitFunder at the time, and still is
pankkake: and I didn't write that text
ThickAsThieves: answer will still be No
pankkake: now people are going to be angry at me
ThickAsThieves: dont worry
mircea_popescu: dexX7 well cause btctc crapped ouit
pankkake: still a very bad way to handle things
dexX7: yes, i was hasty
mircea_popescu: pankkake welcome to bitbet, a game of unpredictable consequences.
ThickAsThieves: let's just put that condition on all bets
pankkake: I regret promoting a bet I didn't specify fully then
mircea_popescu: i suppose it can be remade to reference bitfunder isntead
ThickAsThieves: Red Sox will win world series, this bet resolves as No if Bitfunder closes
mircea_popescu: lol
pankkake: and I'm unhappy about *winning*, let's be clear
mircea_popescu: moar like "red sox will win world series, this bet resolves as no if world series doesn't exist anymoar"
dexX7: then you should have read the bet more carefully?
mircea_popescu: ya next time don't win on bets you didn't read carefully.
pankkake: :D
pankkake: no but see, I wrote the bet, except the last part
ThickAsThieves: i thought the whole point of btc investing was to profit by mistake?
mircea_popescu: i guess so
ThickAsThieves: and that gambling = investing
mircea_popescu: so it's now 5.06 to 0.04
mircea_popescu: anyone got any confidence at all in cointerra delivering ?
ThickAsThieves: didnt CT already say delivery is in Jan?
mircea_popescu: <jborkl> They say, shipping is December - Remember I am not promoting or pumping anything- just telling you what I went by and saw
ThickAsThieves: http://cointerra.com/shop/
pankkake: mircea_popescu: I think they will, but I'm to going vote No as an hedge
ThickAsThieves: their own site says Jan
BingoBoingo: pankkake: You don't vote on bets, you bet on them
dexX7: do you have orders on ct, pankkake?
pankkake: kinda
mircea_popescu: TerraMiner II – 1TH/s, Networked ASIC Miner (Early January Batch)

asciilifeform: ThickAsThieves: idea is that you want to disperse any excess charge on the case as quickly as possible.

asciilifeform: it also depends if you're trying to merely keep RF in, or also out.
ThickAsThieves: so can kb be made with a "jammer"

asciilifeform: i've often thought about cobbling together a keyboard based on pinched optical fibers for the scanning matrix

mircea_popescu: because the mafia is more efficiently organised, by more determined, better people than any government

mircea_popescu: lol has nothing to do with large amts of money >D
mircea_popescu: nor are they notes. so ftw.
mircea_popescu: special drawing rights are a gold substitute, basically, since nixon.
ThickAsThieves: thats the thing
ThickAsThieves: i wanted to read up on it better
ThickAsThieves: obv my understanding is wrong :)
mircea_popescu: you understand how the fed system works, rgiht ?
ThickAsThieves: basically i had no memory of the SDR topic when we last spoke about it, just knew it was something to do with governments
ThickAsThieves: but i recall you mentioning how bitcoin could be good for like purposes
ThickAsThieves: and i want more arguments as to why bitcoins ultimate use isnt necessarily as a currency to buy coffee
mircea_popescu: mkay. so the fed system works thusly : instead of the various banks shipping bullion back and forth as people deposit/withdraw money,
mircea_popescu: they just re-allocate shares of holdings in these fed mystery boxes
mircea_popescu: which meanwhile are empty, but that doesn't matter.
ThickAsThieves: like the ones germany wants to visit
ThickAsThieves: but cant
mircea_popescu: this process was very advanced for the 50s, and so it gave an edge to the banks.
mircea_popescu: now, sdrs are an attempt to implement a similar mechanism in international trade,
mircea_popescu: so that countries can just re-allocate their debt to each other through this mechanism
mircea_popescu: it was never fully implemented, and it never worked too well in practice,
mircea_popescu: cheifly because too many cooks involved, and some of them french
ThickAsThieves: "The SDR comes to prominence when the US dollar is weak or otherwise unsuitable to be a foreign exchange reserve asset. This usually manifests itself as an allocation of SDRs to IMF member countries. Distrust of the US dollar is not the only stated reason allocations have been made, however." says wiki
mircea_popescu: not really. afaik they were most proeminent due to a sudden liquidity systemic shock caused by the arab hike
ThickAsThieves: "China has also suggested the creation of a substitution account to allow exchange of US dollars into SDRs.[Williamson 3] When substitution was proposed before, in 1978, the US appeared reluctant to allow such a mechanism to become operational.[Williamson 4] It is likely just as reluctant today."
mircea_popescu: it was never really important since then
ThickAsThieves: so basically the US only likes dealing in financial instruments that don't require provable backing

ThickAsThieves: now if i recall, your background is in business consulting, why so much finance knowledge?

mircea_popescu: something like that.
mircea_popescu: currently if i wish to pay a supplier I must apply to a bank, which may within a month or so issue me a loc, provided
mircea_popescu: the supplier is on the us approved lists of suppluiers that may be paid, and the bank feels like doing it and so on and so forth.
mircea_popescu: or i can just send them 50k btc within a half hour and be done with it.
ThickAsThieves: sounda an awful lot like a check

ThickAsThieves: after seeing Roger Ver in person I no longer think someone had a gun to his head in that Gox-is-fine video, he's just that uncomfortable acting all the time
mircea_popescu: nubbins` get pankkake to tell you what the mystery drug is called
nubbins`: dub: i just press my ear to the wall if i want psychotic hookers
mircea_popescu: nubbins` why not ask them over ?
nubbins`: pankkake: what is the mystery drug called? (?)
ThickAsThieves: a fun moment was when Mike Hearn told the Mastercoin guy his project was shit
pankkake: I cannot tell
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: she's a beast
ThickAsThieves: something like "i believe you are actually trying to do it, i just dont think you are capable"
pankkake: so bitcoin central sends me a mail to say I'm refused again, does not tell me why, and the website says everything is still under review
nubbins`: currently she is screaming "GERRRAHHHHHHHHHHHH" to her empty apartment
ThickAsThieves: i think Hearn was my favorite guy
ThickAsThieves: he has that i'm so smart it hurts to be around you attitude
nubbins`: interspersed with wails of despair and things being thrown at walls
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves im curious what happens if hearn ever gets his shit together and shows up at some event of mine
mircea_popescu: cause basically i hold the same opinion of him.
ThickAsThieves: he was even reasonable when i asked him if he felt this whole decntralization of everything trend was a worthy pursuit
ThickAsThieves: said it's not his pursuit, and that i was right to question it
nubbins`: i'm going to start a forum called bitcoinchat.org
ThickAsThieves: i believe centralization is the natural evolution of most things
mircea_popescu: well sure. ask him if he thinks it's ok to submit revisions to code he's never read.
nubbins`: you have to pay to sign up
ThickAsThieves: oh
mircea_popescu: that'll be a diff question.
nubbins`: and you get dividends
nubbins`: every time you post
ThickAsThieves: i also asked him about the "core devs"
mircea_popescu: nubbins` something like that might actually work. a ponzi forum
ThickAsThieves: basically i expressed that this name alone worries me,
nubbins`: not a ponzi
nubbins`: you get divs!
mircea_popescu: you pay X to join, you get a percentage of all subsequent joins equal to your "trust rating"
mircea_popescu: as voted by other members.
ThickAsThieves: that accepting the devs as "core" is the most dangerous centralization in bitcoin
ThickAsThieves: on this he disagreed
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: i just need to figure out how to structure the "house edge"
ThickAsThieves: he says Gavin knows what's best and he trusts him, basically
ThickAsThieves: i didnt press the issue, but i disagreee
mircea_popescu: well i don't.
mircea_popescu: used to , but after the retarded server shit... meh.
ThickAsThieves: i both appreciate that some party is making the effort, and worry that it's just one party
ThickAsThieves: what if Gavin is wrong one day? or makes a big mistake?
ThickAsThieves: etc
ThickAsThieves: or dies
mircea_popescu: im hard pressed to appreciate the effort these days.
ThickAsThieves: i also brought up the Btc foundation
ThickAsThieves: he said there's no situation where gavin would just do what they vote for
ThickAsThieves: paid or not
ThickAsThieves: did i already tell you guys about the moment with the central banks being put on the spot?
ThickAsThieves: it was pretty awesome

b0n1: http://trilema.com/2013/least-likely-to-succeed-character-the-upseller/ although I read the article I couldn't find a reason way back and lay betting with btc is problematic
ozbot: Least likely to succeed character : The upseller pe Trilema - Un blog de Mircea Popescu.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo glwt.
BingoBoingo: Thanks mircea_popescu they seem like they can't even throw a proper labcoin style AMAZINGCOMPANY shitstorm. This might be more boring than I anticipated.
mircea_popescu: b0n1 well, ok. let's see here
mircea_popescu: do you grok the part of how back/lay is a subset of mutual betting ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 2443 @ 0.00083772 = 2.0465 BTC [+]
b0n1: no
mircea_popescu: mkay. this is a problem of maffs. let's try something else :
mircea_popescu: do you see how the back/lay system distributes liquidity arbitrarily ?
b0n1: yes
mircea_popescu: okay. do you see how that can be used to shave a significant edge off the naive players ?
b0n1: no
nubbins`: "The last time I had seen grown humans throw up like stressed out cats we were in a ditch and being fired upon."
nubbins`: do elaborate
ThickAsThieves: paintball
mircea_popescu: b0n1 ok, simpler case of that : mutual betting is lay/back with no spread. if you can lay for 45 cents then you can back for 55, precisely.
mircea_popescu: nubbins` nah ty.
nubbins`: tease
nubbins`: tat, lel
b0n1: yeah, i see that point
mircea_popescu: now consider the cancellation problem.
mircea_popescu: a mutual bet you can always cancel by making an appropiate bet on the other side.
mircea_popescu: a back/lay bet you can only cancel if someone is willing to unwind you.
mircea_popescu: in low liquidity this becomes pretty huge.
dub: http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/scot%20free.html not sure how I stumbled on this but the pic of Dred Scott alone is worth the share
ozbot: Scot free
b0n1: yes mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: i thought it was about scottish people
mircea_popescu: b0n1 so basically, mutual betting is better for the bettor. line betting is great for the bookie. lay/back is great for the site/liquidity provider
mircea_popescu: which is i guess another way of saying bookie.
b0n1: yes but additionally lay/back is also good for arbing
mircea_popescu: give an example
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7805 @ 0.00083743 = 6.5361 BTC [-] {2}
b0n1: for example in a football game when you can bet on team A or team B or draw and also lay every bet, too
b0n1: there can be many scenarios where there are arbitrage opportunities
mircea_popescu: sure, the event can be repackaged every which way, but fundamentally it's either a or b.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 309 @ 0.00083772 = 0.2589 BTC [+]
b0n1: yes, but you can for example lay b and bet a and can do arbitrage with that
mircea_popescu: i don't see we have such a shortage of events that we need to make them last by creating dozens of bets out of the same one thing
b0n1: because prices are set by supply and demand from the users, at least thats how it works on betfair
mircea_popescu: you can do the same exact thing on mutual betting, except paying less vig.
mircea_popescu: take the most recent cointerra thing :
mircea_popescu: http://bitbet.us/bet/550/cointerra-will-deliver-in-2013/
ozbot: BitBet - Cointerra will deliver in 2013
mircea_popescu: ;;calc 5.16 / 0.08
gribble: 64.5
mircea_popescu: unless you think it's 64.5 to 1 they actually deliver, there's some arbitrage there.
mike_c: yeah.. my issue is that it feels like unless you get in early there is no way to bet.
mike_c: i.e. http://bitbet.us/bet/119/the-spot-gold-price-will-trade-above-2000-oz/
mike_c: the odds on both sides suck.
mike_c: unless i misunderstand something..
mircea_popescu: how can the odds on both sides suck ?
b0n1: mircea_popescu, i am not sure whether that is of the same nature as the point i want to mention here
nubbins`: okay, i'm going to step outside for a few moments
nubbins`: in the meantime
nubbins`: http://imgur.com/a/9EqWU
ozbot: This is why damage deposits exist. - Imgur
mircea_popescu: mike_c well, it's an 8 month old bet. it's almost dead. you still get 1.1 / 1.7 for 2 months out.
mike_c: yeah. just seems like the weight drops off so quickly that its tough to get in. The weighting system seems to go against your philosophy of monitoring the bet and pushing the other side if you think the bet has moved the wrong way.
mircea_popescu: seeing how it's 1.3k atm... seems about right to me. you get better odds on that somewhere ?
mircea_popescu: i dunno that it does that honestly.
mircea_popescu: seems to me it's actually pricing the thing pretty darned accurately. if you look at options they're a worse deal.
mike_c: lemme check
mircea_popescu: i dunno that you can derive 10% gains over ghold staying under 2k an ounce for the rest of the year
mircea_popescu: b0n1 what'd be the difference you'd say?
mike_c: nasdaq.com is slow as shit.
mike_c: ok. i agree with you (and therefore will place a bet). let me find a better example or understand that I was wrong.
mircea_popescu: in general it's a daunting proposition, because it's so unstructured.
mircea_popescu: people are used to the very cloistered situation traditional betting venues offer.
mircea_popescu: the only problem is, traditional betting venues work much like the casino, to skim as much as possible.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 7550 @ 0.00083797 = 6.3267 BTC [+] {2}
b0n1: mircea_popescu, what i mean with arbing is for example in a binary bet where you can bet on event A or B you could lay both and make profit ( arbitrage opportunity)
b0n1: the quotes for bet/lay of an event A are not "entangled" with bet/lay of an event B so to say
mircea_popescu: so then if the events are unrelated then this is simply atiomic betting. you can bet no on all the various miner deliveries on bitbet and win with all
mircea_popescu: heck, people have.
b0n1: don't see the point here
mircea_popescu: well me either.
mircea_popescu: so you can lay two unrelated bets. if they're unrelated that;'s not arbitrage.
mircea_popescu: so basically you'd like to bet with stupid people ?
b0n1: well mircea_popescu a lot of money make a living with that all day on betfair ...
b0n1: a lot of people
mircea_popescu: i don't think a discussion of the cluelessness of the population can in principle be made into a comparison of betting systems.
mircea_popescu: while this may be true, either in your own case or even generally, it still has northing to do with the car.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: apparently I'm a sock for your PR now, or she's a sock for me? I'm wondering if this SolarWind thing has scammed before https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=297334.msg3296064#msg3296064
b0n1: well... initially I was wondering why there is no back/lay betting system for btc so far. You told me then that there are difficulties and I was curious about them, but still dont get it I am afraid
b0n1: mircea_popescu, what alternatives?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo better learn to walk in heels.
b0n1: I think its an idea worth thinking about since back/lay betting systems are much more attractive for intelligent punters who don't want to get robbed by line bettings
mircea_popescu: until they put the afternoon required into figuring it out and move on to mutual.
peterl: BTCT will be open for trading for one more day due to the domain registration lasping today https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=125629.msg3296116#msg3296116
b0n1: http://bitbet.us/bet/550/cointerra-will-deliver-in-2013/ why is nobody betting a yes here? Chances are much higher for yes atm than for no
peterl: what's a cointerra?
b0n1: i mean a reasonable big amount on yes
mircea_popescu: b0n1 well it's new, prolly nobody with a balance saw it yet.
mircea_popescu: or who knows, maybe there's no confidence in delivery.
BingoBoingo: After the Picostocks news I'm leaning towards no chance CoinTerra delivers, if they deliver at all I imagine it would be BFL style...
b0n1: but someone here confirmed some hours ago visiting cointerra that they would deliver
mircea_popescu: it's a great thing all these "companies" don't actually have professional cfos involved so nobody realises just how much damage a faux pas of the sort does to their prospects
b0n1: also there is high evidence since they already sold the december batch
mircea_popescu: b0n1 twas jborkl, and he said that's what they said not what they'll do necessarily.
mircea_popescu: lol by this criteria bfl delivered in 2012.

Vexual: yes, any theyve said the lawyers are tight with the regulators
ThickAsThieves: this sentiment was repeated by other lawyers i spoke with in other countries,
ThickAsThieves: essentially the regulators welcome recommendations in new areas
ThickAsThieves: of course they will do what they want
Vexual: that the regulators will accept submission, of that their plan will get the green light?
mircea_popescu: lol.
