asciilifeform: anyone who even thinks of 'browser' when thinking about TOR, etc. is already in a state of damnation.
pankkake: what do you mean?
asciilifeform: refer to the 'dumb users' section of the latest TOR dirt leak (even if you believe that the 'leak' is disinfo, the section applies to most users.)
asciilifeform: so consider the case of a TORist who proceeds to log into gmail, etc. while on a circuit

mircea_popescu: i think it's pretty much useful as a way to write for smartphones, but it does run in linux.
mircea_popescu: which means it can be run on the toaster oven or w/e.

nubbins`: after an admittedly short search, i wasn't able to find a whole lot of technical info on the theory behind colored coins, but i found this odd snippet in a paper:
mircea_popescu: hm
Vexual: im joking people, hes moving to tokyo
nubbins`: "A valid Bitcoin transaction which does not follow the special colored format, will be recognized by the Bitcoin network, but not as a legitimate color-preserving transaction by the colored coin network. The color of these coins will be lost, and hence users and software clients need to be careful to avoid doing this and losing their value."
Vexual: cat is true
nubbins`: but why the fuck would you design it in such a way that the "color of the coins" (i.e. your shares in company x or whatever) could ever be lost?
nubbins`: it boggles me
Vexual: otherwise its racist?
Vexual: couloured coins isn't even a thing
nubbins`: that's it
nubbins`: it's because shit like i pasted doesn't make sense
nubbins`: and things that don't make sense don't get implemented
pankkake: why even use the bitcoin blockchain?
nubbins`: hash power!
pankkake: merged mining!
nubbins`: separate blockchain would be vulnerable to 51% attacks
pankkake: well, ok, you have to add incentives to merge mine it
nubbins`: but let's say i own 100 shares in company x
Vexual: le nuage
nubbins`: why can't i just send pankkake a dust transaction with "xfer 100 S.GEM" in the note field?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` because idiots.
mircea_popescu: see also
mircea_popescu: ;;google why i nixed
nubbins`: i mean, if the idea behind colored coins is that you have to make this huge tree of transactions that have some sort of magic dust in them
gribble: nixed - definition of nixed by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus ...: <http://www.thefreedictionary.com/nixed>; Why I nixed p2p, colored coins and all that jazz pe Trilema - Un blog ...: <http://trilema.com/why-i-nixed-p2p-colored-coins-and-all-that-jazz>; Why I Nixed the Knicks | The New York Observer: <http://observer.com/2012/11/why-i-nixed-the-knicks/>
nubbins`: why not tie the shares to the address, not to any particular coins?
nubbins`: i send a dust tx to address 1abc, with note "xfer 100 s.gem", so address 1abc is assumed to always possess those 100 shares, permanently
nubbins`: no losing them
nubbins`: until they send a dust tx to someone else saying xfer 50 s.gem or whatever
pankkake: from what I understand, colored coins aren't much better than asicminer-style direct shares
nubbins`: tying assets to individual coins and not addresses doesn't make any sense
nubbins`: the only thing direct shares need is a way to post bids and asks
nubbins`: without relying on a website
mircea_popescu: because the handkling of fixed addresses is poorly understood because, again, idiots.
pankkake: I'm still waiting for any technical insight on colored coins, so far I only see circlejerks (like the reddit shirt fundraiser)
nubbins`: nothing that couldn't be trivially implemented in any desktop or web-based bitcoin client
nubbins`: another tab next to "receive money" on your blockchain.info account
mircea_popescu: nubbins` here's the thing : if you do it with addresses you don't really need the blockchain, might as well do it to gpg signatures.
mircea_popescu: which reduces to a slightly braindamaged reimplementation of mpex.
nubbins`: mpex servers melt tomorrow, no trading; i can still send a dust tx to transfer my colored address shares
Vexual: you got a dude with an ak guarding your private key?
nubbins`: i'm assuming you keep records of who owns what? suppose you didn't have to
nubbins`: Vexual: don't we all?
Vexual: few do
mircea_popescu: nubbins` you can, but you have an escrow problem each time you do.
nubbins`: escrow is a problem?
mircea_popescu: yes, escrow is a problem.
nubbins`: multi-sig transactions
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 58 @ 0.009 = 0.522 BTC [+]
mircea_popescu: multi-sig txs are not a solution to the escrow problem really.
Vexual: og blockchain is the gold standard, accept no substitutes
mircea_popescu: they;'re a useful tool in some contexts, but you still need to have an escrow agent
mircea_popescu: if that agent melts down... no transactions.
mircea_popescu: which brings you back to exactly where we started.
Vexual: whats the point?
nubbins`: if the transacting parties agree, there's no need for the escrow agent at all, but you're correct in that the system would hinge on having a supply of readily-available escrow agents
mircea_popescu: yeah.
nubbins`: although
nubbins`: it's trivial to verify a legit tx
mircea_popescu: depends on the state of the blockchain at that time
mircea_popescu: if it's forked, it may be impossible.
nubbins`: well, if it's forked, lots of things are impossible
mircea_popescu: not for mpex.
mircea_popescu: moreover, you will have a sensible delay in all trades. what's better, one day a year of no trading or half hour lost to settle each individual trade ?
nubbins`: hm
mircea_popescu: today is like design 101 day
Vexual: got a logo yet?
pankkake: from what I see, this is going the way of the decentralized facebook
nubbins`: y'know, i think everything but the delay could be worked around

mircea_popescu: shit one learns from one's blog.
davout: yo
mircea_popescu: ello.
davout: so i was reading your reply
davout: i concur when you say the fact the private key is never exported is a feature
mircea_popescu: "and i hate you now"
mircea_popescu: a ok
davout: nah, i never hate :-)
davout: but regarding the revocation cert it's still useful to have
davout: push it to keyservers, everybody gets notified
mircea_popescu: maybe. the one constraint in there, you have to appreciate, is that since we're not doing asics for this,
mircea_popescu: there's just so much space available for code
mircea_popescu: so iot's a game of well what can we fit of what we need to have
davout: ofc
mircea_popescu: if we ever end up selling these by the 10's of ks then an asic run becomes more reasonable and it probably will present a muchly different picture
davout: i'm just saying you're forgetting the main point of the revocation cert (in this specific context) in your answer
mircea_popescu: well, see, the cardano is principally to be used with people you are in contact with.
mircea_popescu: it's ideal usecase is not this, post pubkey on your blog, 20 years later still get encrypted email to that key (you've long lost)
davout: hmm
mircea_popescu: lermme quote here
mircea_popescu: well i can't find it. somewhere phil zimmermann was saying that people still send him pgp encrypted email but he long since doesn't have the key so he usually responds to ask ppl to send it plainly
mircea_popescu: which he figures they might think it's a little strange.
mircea_popescu: anyway. that sort of thing isn't the usecase here, not really. a classic pc implementation works much better.

mircea_popescu: skinnkavaj hasa a very interesting take on the world :D
skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: What?
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves the relevant bit there is, after the third time bitcoinica was raped, the "bitcoin consultancy" group of dorks self proclaimed into importance & relevance decided to shut it down.
mircea_popescu: after which one of them, the fabled amir taaki, stole the code and published it
LorenzoMoney: yes, a decentralized stock exchange would be wonderful, wouldn't it
mircea_popescu: in what his foggy brain represented as "open sourcing",
mircea_popescu: supposedly if you torrent some movie you're also open sourcing it, cause you don't need a license in the first place to cede rights.
skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: Did you respond to my comment i just made in neobee thread?
LorenzoMoney: and why are they morons? oh becauseyou area fascist
LorenzoMoney: yes, bet you love Heinlein also
mircea_popescu: anyway. the code contained a lot of good bits including enough info to reconstruct a pw.
mircea_popescu: which resulted in some [more] lost btc.
mircea_popescu: skinnkavaj no it was about the btctc "you're already rich" thing
skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: Isn't it true?
skinnkavaj: Does burnside need the money?
mircea_popescu: no, it's not true.
mircea_popescu: burnside is poor now, for one. his btct never made anything for the mention, for the other.
skinnkavaj: mircea_popescu: Didn't both litecoinglobal and btct have very huge fees?
mircea_popescu: moreover, poor idiots should not have access to code that SEEMS like it's doing something of that nature.
mircea_popescu: because they'll just fuck their lives up.
skinnkavaj: Ofc burnside is rich.
mircea_popescu: skinnkavaj they had very huge fees. he is not rich. go figure.
mod6: ThickAsThieves: http://trilema.com/2013/why-i-nixed-p2p-colored-coins-and-all-that-jazz/
jurov: and this is not abut burnside. now there's at least some technical barrier to keep your average noob/scammer to start his own exchange
mircea_popescu: ^
skinnkavaj: jurov: Yeah like a free market hurts
skinnkavaj: LOL
mircea_popescu: to start his own WEBSITE which he misrepresents as an exchange.
skinnkavaj: and you are into bitcoin
skinnkavaj: because its sold to a company?
mircea_popescu: a collectiojn of idiots being confused about what they do != a free market.
skinnkavaj: So your argument is like, with open source everything that comes out is just crap?
pankkake: "LorenzoMoney> yes, bet you love Heinlein also" wat
skinnkavaj: And you are using bitcoin
mircea_popescu: no.
skinnkavaj: Lmao
skinnkavaj: Maybe we should sell bitcoin to a company
mircea_popescu: my argument is that you are ill equipped to consider things, as displayed by the very dubious generalisation you just tripped yourself with.
skinnkavaj: Genius
jurov: skinnkavaj: i have seen myself some offers on freelancer "build me a bitcoin exchange", they were obviously clueless on first read
jurov: it's just better for everyone if they don't
ThickAsThieves: mp your colored coins article doesnt address many other problems
skinnkavaj: So what? With a free markey, people will choose where to go. Which one sets up the best BTCT clone will win in the end.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves so point them out.
mircea_popescu: anyway, "<jurov> burnside's not sure if he can reliably wipe all passwords" << no, just not sure how to cleanly remove the "give scammers fake btc to fake their volume" code.
ThickAsThieves: the argument of course shifts depending on what problem it is people are trying to solve with decentralization
jurov: skinnkavaj: nope. the one who will manage to keep the bitcoins safe will win
mircea_popescu: of course.
skinnkavaj: jurov: Exactly what i said but in other words
ThickAsThieves: your points are mostly technical, involving the blockchain as being impractical
ThickAsThieves: i'd argue the concept itself is a unicorn
mircea_popescu: skinnkavaj no, not exacvtly what you said at all.
mircea_popescu: forum retards move to what SEEMS TO THEM a better alternative.
mircea_popescu: then they lose their btc.
mircea_popescu: which is ok because new retards come in.
ThickAsThieves: powers will always become ordered, dismantled, ordered, etc
mircea_popescu: if this process is allowed to become "what Bitcoin is" then Bitcoin will never be anything.
skinnkavaj: No, people use the service because its good. Thats the free market. Do you realize why everyone is abonding mtgox?
mircea_popescu: and a bunch of rich powerful people are here to fuck you in the mouth until you bleed
mircea_popescu: rather than let that happen.
mircea_popescu: i dunno how it can be made clearer. "free market" indeed.
ThickAsThieves: i see another conversation is happening sorry
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves no, im done with the "free market of retards" concept. anyway, re the colored coins :
mircea_popescu: the blockchain is fundamentally a solution to the bizantine problem
mircea_popescu: that problem exists like gravity exists. if you have it you gotta solve it. which is why the article focuses on the blockchain : if you're doing distributed anything, you have the bizantine poblem.
ThickAsThieves: admittedly, it doesnt seem to be the colored coin style developers making wild claims, but the people flocking to these ideas
ThickAsThieves: what i mean is
ThickAsThieves: people see exchanges closing
ThickAsThieves: and that decentralized things are now a solution
ThickAsThieves: colored coin type developers are merely trying to make an accountable ledger
ThickAsThieves: these are not the same things
mircea_popescu: explain the difference ?
ThickAsThieves: well the devs are just trying to make a thing
mircea_popescu: i mean other than "Well different implementations of the same concept"
ThickAsThieves: while the cheerleaders are searching for a replacement for exchanges
pankkake: colored coins do not provide a solution for decentralized *trades*
mircea_popescu: so you envisage a distributed replacement that's NOT at the same time an accountable ledger ?
ThickAsThieves: no
ThickAsThieves: i despise the whole idea
mircea_popescu: not what i meant
mircea_popescu: i meant as a pure concept. could such a thing be conceived
ThickAsThieves: i simply believe any such pursuit is a waste of time
mircea_popescu: pankkake that's you know, like "cancer will get you" for the gunshot wound patient
ThickAsThieves: i see the securities market as an ideal system involving 4 major parties
mircea_popescu: anyway. something like ripple (and tf's abuse thereof) clearly showed what the problems are with trying to get a distributed trust model going.
ThickAsThieves: the Exhange/Platform, Investment Bank/Issuer, Investor, and the issued Business/Financial Instrument

ThickAsThieves: if you pile on mp's technical arguments about the blockchain's limits in providing a decentralized solution it only makes decentralization that much worse of a pursuit
ThickAsThieves: circling back to, i'd love to see blog article from mp that supported what ive just described
ThickAsThieves: although i guess no one would care much
ThickAsThieves: certainly not the forums
ThickAsThieves: "Such terms is rather ridicules and im sure they wont hold up in court in many country's"
pankkake: I'm not well versed in trade engines, but I don't see how you could execute them in a decentralized way
pankkake: even with only trusted nodes
pankkake: execute trades*
ThickAsThieves: i'm not inclined to find out :)
ThickAsThieves: another area people think decentralization addresses is circumventing SEC and other regulation
ThickAsThieves: this might be possible for nondescript financial instruments
ThickAsThieves: but not actual shares in companies
pankkake: unless the company is a scam, then it can work :)
ThickAsThieves: true
jurov: i dont undersstand, how it can work? i mean, how it protects said comapny from SEC?
ThickAsThieves: it doesnt
ThickAsThieves: thats the point
mircea_popescu: pankkake it's a hell of a problem.
jurov: so to what you said "true" then? i'm confused
ThickAsThieves: scammers would be safe
ThickAsThieves: since they would never say who they really are

samson_: If shares were issued on their own blockchain and could be freely moved between the various available trading sites / 'share wallets' there would be no real difference in trading a share to trading an altcoin. Something like this would provide no decentralised exchange but it provides a way to hold and move shares independently of any trading platform. Just like Bitcoin.

samson_: If anyone can create a security then I don't see the big deal. The approval process would happen automatically if people started trading them for Bitcoin. Take these new alt currencies which appear to be created daily - they're not all traded on exchanges hence they're not 'approved'. They still exist but that is irrelevant.
samson_: I guess my take on it is the shares could do with decentralisation, not so much the exchanges.
ThickAsThieves: you'd prefer the stock market to more resemble the altcoin markert?
ThickAsThieves: wasnt it close enough already with labcoins and activeminingcoins
Jere_Jones: lol
Jere_Jones: Were those really things?
ThickAsThieves: they behaved much the same...
ThickAsThieves: lots of people focusing attention on them like a bitcoingem
ThickAsThieves: then bagholders left to be determined
Jere_Jones: I admit that I, at one time or another, owned shares of both.
ThickAsThieves: hordes of ingoramuses asking what is a labcoin and how do i get them?
ThickAsThieves: anxious to hold their thread of the bag
ThickAsThieves: then poof the network disowns it
ThickAsThieves: threads unravel
ThickAsThieves: the bag is empty
ThickAsThieves: at least no one had to waste any GPU power
samson_: It would be nice if we could withdraw shares from an exchange just like a coin.
ThickAsThieves: why
samson_: It would end reliance on 'the exchange' so when it closes down they could be traded elsewhere.
ThickAsThieves: you rely on the issuer
ThickAsThieves: not the exchange
ThickAsThieves: the exchange is a platform
ThickAsThieves: just because you can "withdraw" your share, doesnt mean it will have usefulness in the same ways
ThickAsThieves: realize that in such a system you'd end up with more friction
ThickAsThieves: in time, in cost, etc
ThickAsThieves: me for example, you think i would manage a ledger system for free?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 64 @ 0.00935 = 0.5984 BTC [-]
ThickAsThieves: even a decentralized system needs a point of issuance
samson_: This is true, I'm not saying it's simple
ThickAsThieves: but you are saying you want it
ThickAsThieves: i'm saying you shouldnt
ThickAsThieves: professional service providers are useful
ThickAsThieves: anarchy is not
samson_: I think it would be an evolution on current uses of blockchains without going down the whole coloured coins route
ThickAsThieves: there are still plenty other issues to address
ThickAsThieves: time is better spent pursuing running legitimate services
ThickAsThieves: imo at least

jborkl: With respect to the capacitors, an investigation has been undertaken with Anotherhost.se, as they have suffered the issue with all their boards.
jborkl: KNC says all the caps blowing is due to the corsair ps
mircea_popescu: all ?!
mircea_popescu: wait a second. ALL ?!
jborkl: that is what it says
jborkl: It appears that a reasonable solution has been reached in that all the boards this has occurred to seem to have been used alongside the exact same PSU; The Corsair HX850.+
mircea_popescu: dude it's not the power get out.
jborkl: Basically there is an issue with excessive current being applied, after the PU cuts out and the device is turned back on, causing the cap to pop.
mircea_popescu: if all the boards burn its not the capacitors, it's not the power, it's the board.
jborkl: I know, that is a bad diagnosis- it is just wrong
kakobrekla: hum
kakobrekla: but caps exploded / went on fire
jborkl: A better guess- they are drawing too much off the ps- it cuts off to protect itself and the caps pop
kakobrekla: not just poped
kakobrekla: one can overload cap for a short while
kakobrekla: that seems to me like something that happens while under load for some time
jborkl: it has been reported minutes after plugin
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla the current theory i'm crediting is that the boards have bad metal masks in a spot, and it slowly melts the insulation
mircea_popescu: after which it shorts.
kakobrekla: well minutes in an eternity for electricity
jborkl: that is a good theory mp
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 164 @ 0.00259998 = 0.4264 BTC [-]
jborkl: it makes sense- the KNC theory is just flat out wrong
mircea_popescu: jborkl originally it looked like caps just popped but the history since then does nto bear it out
jborkl: The heavy scorch marks some of the boards are showing indicates more than a cap also
mircea_popescu: and moreover it seems the majority of people i showed the pics to say those aren't electrolytic but ceramic
mircea_popescu: which don
mircea_popescu: t pop that way
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 1 @ 1.04987999 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: alternative: solder bridge (short) under the smt ceramic cap.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah because burned boards w/o such bridge were seen
jborkl: EDIT: I should add that KnC are using Corsair V850s themselves, and haven't had an issue with any of them. That said apparently they almost supplied their entire hosting with the HX, but due to the HX being out of stock for the volume required, they bought the V850. Which in hindsight is a wonderful thing.
jborkl: I just saw that
asciilifeform: bridge (accidental short, glob of solder where it doesn't belong) would vaporize in this case
jborkl: so, the entire hosting is being blamed on Corsair
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform vaporize is perhaps an overtstatement.

KRS1: Effective October 28, 2013 at 4pm CT, Dwolla will be withdrawing its service offerings to virtual currency exchanges and virtual currency related services.
mircea_popescu: KRS1 didn't they do this like... 3 times already ?
Namworld: Yes, it worked
KRS1: I think so, but they're still working with exchanges like campbx.
KRS1: this is probably it
Namworld: Key to use and url to submit appears as plaintext in the compile.
KRS1: Virtual currency is slowly becoming a bad word.
Namworld: Because virtual = Does not exist in people's mind.
Namworld: People just need to learn their bank account statements are just as virtual.
Namworld: If they want something not virtual, they can just hold physical gold and silver or such thing.

KRS1: one of the only tools people have to move cash in/out of the system
mircea_popescu: for some values of "people".
mircea_popescu: anyway, i guess few are aware, but as per genius satoshi design the main way to move cash into bitcoin is mining
mircea_popescu: (via electricity consumption).
mircea_popescu: this was always the case to date.
mircea_popescu: the 2nd way is... also mining. through miner production.
KRS1: so take fiat out of the equation..are bitcoins actually worth anything then? I dont know of anything you can do with them besides get some goods and services, best case.
mircea_popescu: yes, they are.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: if only this worked in reverse gear.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the reason it can't work in reverse gear is that fiat is worthless.
asciilifeform: i was thinking more along the lines of btc to watts, rather than dollars
KRS1: I apparently stepped into a chat room on another planet.
asciilifeform: KRS1: nah, that's at #urbit
KRS1: lol for real
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i expect we will have brtc to watts.
