Duffer1: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=412878.0
ozbot: Ethereum: 2nd gen cryptocurrency with contract programming, "dagger" hashing
kakobrekla: LEARN TO ENGLAND
fract4l: Ethereum just changed the game. everyone is fucked now.
Duffer1: looks like a dud to me
kakobrekla: But everyone was fucked before
kakobrekla: so what changed
BingoBoingo: Everyone is fucked. Etherium is fucked.
asciilifeform: did someone simply uncomment the scripting module in classic bitcoin?
kakobrekla: i dont know but the article says the autor is very smart
jcpham: obv satoshi's brother in law
asciilifeform: leaving aside the question whether this was a smart thing to do, that's what it looks like at first glance.
asciilifeform: 'A contract is essentially an automated agent that lives on the Ethereum network, has an Ethereum address and balance, and can send and receive transactions.'
asciilifeform: did i miss something? where does it live? on a particular machine? or on every node running the block chain?
asciilifeform: (if it's the former, this is deadly boring)
kakobrekla: prolly as "the client"
asciilifeform: the widespread obsession with 'memory-hard' workfunctions is peculiar
asciilifeform: as if DRAM had never been invented
asciilifeform: or it were somehow impossible to obtain cheaply
Duffer1: just a tactic to attract miners left out of the sha race
fract4l: As a result, we have a protocol with unique potential; rather than being a closed-ended, single-purpose protocol intended for a specific array of applications in data storage, gambling or finance, Ethereum is open-ended by design, and we believe that it is extremely well-suited to serving as a foundational layer for a very large number of both financial and non-financial protocols in the years to come.
fract4l: pwned.
fract4l: Ethereum >> *
kakobrekla: http://xkcd.com/927/
ozbot: xkcd: Standards
asciilifeform: how did this fellow miss the obvious usefulness of programmable workfunctions?
asciilifeform: he 'went meta' on nearly everything else
asciilifeform: but not this
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Turing coin? That ultimate FPGA coin you've mentioned before.
asciilifeform: one possible name, yes.
kakobrekla: i think it could prove hard to lauch a sha coin nowdays, since a lot of people can fuck with the blockchain
kakobrekla: on these small coins
asciilifeform: the 'memory hard' people are what is known in the armchair general community as a 'target-rich environment.'
Duffer1: they'd bend your blockchain over and do terrible terrible things to it
asciilifeform: the first joker who bothers to bake an scrypt asic will devour the altchains like smallpox devoured aboriginals
nubbins`: ..with infected blankets?
asciilifeform: or hell, even fpga with sdram controller
Duffer1: i hope that happens quickly, it'd be nice to see what devs come up with to counter 'scrypt asics'
asciilifeform: anything short of programmable workfunction will lead to a cat'n'mouse game rather expensive and unproductively unpleasant for all involved.
asciilifeform: at first glance, it would seem like the altchain devs could always outrun the asic folks
asciilifeform: given that it costs nothing to spawn a new alt, with a new workfunction, while asics are costly
asciilifeform: but this is a mistaken idea
asciilifeform: every forced move of this kind is a 'schism event'
Duffer1: they'll still have to attract miners, and attempt to mitigate the effects of launch attacks/stability
asciilifeform: and drives a wedge between user groups with conflicting interests (existing stakeholders want a difficult-to-mine coin, those who invested in miners want the miners to keep working)
Duffer1: how to evolve beyond cpu/mem intense functions?
asciilifeform: hard to attract miners if you make total war on them when they start to succeed.
Duffer1: devs are only worried about their own coin though
Duffer1: so they have to attract miners somehow
Duffer1: it's a fascinating ecosystem
asciilifeform: right now, panicking idiots are overwhelmingly incentivising covert mining.
asciilifeform: that is, if you are a large miner, it is increasingly a bad idea to look like what you are
Duffer1: hehe
asciilifeform: instead, buy ipv4 space, etc. the way spammers do.
asciilifeform: prog. workfunctions would give you a single coin with multiple workfunctions ('coloured' by origin, if you like), and so the actual market value of a particular 'work' could be determined.
Duffer1: one coin with variable pow?
asciilifeform: say, i want mr. moron's md5 hash 'cracked.' i offer to trade 10btc for 1000 moronhashcrackcoins.
asciilifeform: the whole exercise takes place on the block chain.
Duffer1: oh
asciilifeform: you, the worker, know that it is an honest trade, because you bring 100 moronhashcoins and get 1 btc, every step of the way, for arbitrarily small chunks.
asciilifeform: (actually coughing up a workfunction that does useful work is left as an exercise for the alert reader.)
BingoBoingo: X-Ray crystalography as a useful work function?
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you're probably thinking of ab initio protein folding
asciilifeform: x-ray crystallography is an actual physical measurement
asciilifeform: but it's one way to solve the energy-minimal 'where should the atoms go' question, yes.
asciilifeform: an altchain that *actually folds* would have no problem with wealth injection from the 'meatspace' universe
Duffer1: indeed
asciilifeform: (vs. an idiotchain that merely promises with kind words to fund things)
Duffer1: curecoin
Duffer1: >.<
asciilifeform: that'd be an example of the 'promises'
Duffer1: yea
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [HMF] 9 @ 0.02696494 = 0.2427 BTC [-]
asciilifeform: the problem with workfunctions that do something useful is that, unless the supply of such jobs naturally tapers off (all interesting proteins found in nature eventually 'folded')
asciilifeform: you get an inflationary coin
BingoBoingo: Well X-Ray crystallography is indeed a hard physical problem with varying and more expensive levels of difficulty. X-raying a mineral crystal isn't so bad. A given protein in fluid is a bit harder. Getting a good picture of a receptor protein as it sits in the cell membrane is an incredibly hard problem.
asciilifeform: 'hard' isn't enough for the purpose of coin, you also need ease of verification.
asciilifeform: the subtle thing here is that 'useful' workfuncts must coexist with 'useless' ones - ideally, in the same blockchain.
asciilifeform: because they serve entirely different purposes
asciilifeform: (one is to promote a certain calculation; the other - store of value.)
asciilifeform: result at the end of the day should be to make it a hard fact that anyone who carries out the kind of calculation you want done, ends up with X btc for his trouble
asciilifeform: (conventional btc)
Duffer1: asciicoin inc?
asciilifeform: Duffer1: in case this wasn't obvious, this is not a product that threatens to actually exist.
Duffer1: lol i am aware :P
asciilifeform: and were it to exist, i'd have no part of it (otherwise occupied.)
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 35031 @ 0.0008455 = 29.6187 BTC [-]
KRS1: yes as Duffer1 said fascinating ecosystem
asciilifeform: at the risk of repeating myself: 'moronhashcrackcoin' or 'foldprotein1B41coin' only has value to whoever commissioned that calculation.
asciilifeform: the person who carries it out will expect to be paid in something that is actually a stable store of value
asciilifeform: (coin with 'useless' workfunction, difficulty rampup, all the things we know and love)
Duffer1: perceived utility beyond energy wasting will drive popularity and coin value
Duffer1: xpm is great example
asciilifeform: if this were really so, 'curecoin' and the like would be great hits.
asciilifeform: but even with a coin that provably represents useful work: why should someone give you gold or cocaine because you helped fold a protein?
Duffer1: meh their pow doesn't actually do anything
asciilifeform: unless they in particular wished it folded
Duffer1: the perception is obviously that utility will drive adoption and popularity and value
asciilifeform: from the 'store of value' point of view, they expect that they can get a similar quantity of g or c or whatnot for the coin later.
asciilifeform: as far as i can tell (by no means an expert view), the thing that mainly drives adoption of classic btc is precisely reliability-as-store-of-value.
Duffer1: it's different with alts though, since they're all tied to how many bitcoins can i get for my shitcoin
asciilifeform: alts as the presently exist seem like a modernized version of 'penny stocks'
Duffer1: indeed, but with the potential to rapidly become something else
asciilifeform: scammers scam, and people who think themselves more clever than the scammer try to ride along
Duffer1: the right pow can change everything
asciilifeform: then, of course, is the other end of this spectrum:
asciilifeform: slavecoin.
asciilifeform: 'pow' based on proving that you wasted the time of living people, vs. mere machines.
KRS1: reading this conversation vs gmaxwell's conversation in -pricetalk is hurting my brain a little.
KRS1: you both had me glued
Duffer1: ascii knows far more about this than i do, i'm just going off what i've observed from the primecoin example
asciilifeform: crackpot hypothesis: every new cryptocoin can be seem as an attempt to 'replay' the history of money
asciilifeform: with (optionally) 'different winners'
asciilifeform: which 'winners' are optimized for, determines whether you get a turd (known alts) or something interesting ('classic' btc)
asciilifeform: *seen
Duffer1: i wouldn't call that crackpot at all
Duffer1: but i see evolution there as well
KRS1: primecoin is very interesting to me
KRS1: imo the only altcoin that might have value besides nmc
KRS1: but then again asciilifeform showed me how it too is worthless
asciilifeform: isn't that where they had nominally 'unspendable' reserves that got spent?
truffles: coinyecoin is best noob
Duffer1: all hail the brilliance of those devs
KRS1: no ipo for coinecoin and has no dogelike meme
asciilifeform: you can cut any 'weirdo' alt into two kinds of parts: actual mechanical parts - what will continue to work in just the algorithmic way specified, by 'byzantine' consensus of the participant nodes; and 'promises' - parts that depend on a handful of human doing as they promised
asciilifeform: the former is concrete and steel, the latter - 'duct tape.'
asciilifeform: btc is heavy on the concrete and steel; 'curecoin' (for example) is mostly tape.
Duffer1: indeed
asciilifeform: concrete/steel have breaking points, specified strength
Duffer1: what would you say of primecoin though?
asciilifeform: tape holds until it doesn't (yes, actual duct tape is a material that can be dealt with scientifically; we're thinking of the traditional 'philosophical' duct tape that just fscking snaps on you)
asciilifeform: i vaguely recall primecoin having its public goatfuck moment
asciilifeform: but, to be honest, i'm not the one to ask
asciilifeform: i don't really keep track of the 'scene', and in fact ended up in this channel entirely by accident!
Duffer1: :P
truffles: some1 spammed this chanel in btc otc :(
Duffer1: otc gives me seizures
truffles: i wonder if im still banned :D

mircea_popescu: incidentally, that's one symptom of the unimportant : they may think they're personal, but in point of fact they're impersonal and universally so. even things they do in private are really quite impersonal.
mircea_popescu: i guess the term for it is commonplace or banal.

VanCleef: now he just rides in his jetski in his bathtub made out of diamonds and his pet dolphin
mircea_popescu: VanCleef i only help homeless people if they're female, kinda young, kinda cute and really, really into it.
Vexual: he wouldn't ride a jetski unless his crew designed it
truffles: ur flow of thought often seems disconnected, i dont usually get it
mircea_popescu: truffles that's not what grammar means.
truffles: + the bad grammar
VanCleef: "you look cock fasmished, let me help you"
truffles: but u know i did ask, so let me attempt
mircea_popescu: that wouldn't be very practical. i can only get it up what, a few times a day ?
mircea_popescu: lot more homeless than that around.
VanCleef: since you bought all their houses ya
truffles: id so own at monopoly though
mircea_popescu: thanks to all the inequality fightin', bout one in ten us folk are homeless, one in three yurepan kids are unemployed or unemployable and so on.

mircea_popescu: yes, well, when you were three you probably ate your own shit, too.
mircea_popescu: does that mean yo ucan't be a gourmet chef ?
truffles: i managed to get to sentence 2 , so basically u hate empathy?
VanCleef: so you've never felt real love before mp?
ArsKisS: VanCleef, what first crush? no girl can crush me
mircea_popescu: truffles nope. i dislike the sort of lazy fuckwit who imagines magic works. which is what you're trying to do with "Empathy" and this guy is trying to do with "twu wuv", create some sort of magical amulet that'll save you from having to, you know, live.
truffles: a world where every1 just takes
VanCleef: i hope its something you get to experience oneday
VanCleef: its a really good feeling
mircea_popescu: me living your preconceived notion ? i have no doubt it'd be a good feeling, only problem is
truffles: i believe in moderation, i dont recognize that view ure posing
mircea_popescu: it;s supposed to be a good feeling for me, not for you.
VanCleef: just open your heart oneday mp
VanCleef: you might enjoy it
mircea_popescu: you're trippin all over a strawman.
VanCleef: just promise me you'll keep an open mind and when the time is right a open heart?
truffles: an open heart for love?
VanCleef: i dont want the sickness to completely take over that sweet young man i use to know before all this bitcoin stuff
mircea_popescu: im starting to understand why romantic comedies sell so well. they really managed to create their own captive market huh.
truffles: why r u wanting him to find love now
VanCleef: he's not ready
truffles: pm him ur fandom
truffles: u could be the one
VanCleef: its not all about money
VanCleef: sometimes we just want someone to hug
VanCleef: and i feel mp's pain
truffles: 0.0
VanCleef: so i just hope he finds someone to truely love oneday
truffles: so ure his childhood friend from romania?

truffles: No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

KRS1: -> http://explo.yt/
mircea_popescu: o. i see that too
jurov: mhm :(
mircea_popescu: i was actually reading through it right nao
KRS1: looks like a timeout value or something is amiss
Apocalyptic: http://explo.yt/ works fine for me
jurov: they had some hosting problems today
jurov: we'll see if that persists
KRS1: carrier grade network problems aside, it amazes me hosting companies can't have 100% uptime
Vexual: your network never goes down?
diametric: KRS1: even Tier 1 providers ultimately do maintenance
KRS1: i have a friend who hosts out of a small datacenter in texas..he has the choice of like 8 different providers and can fail over at any time
diametric: but nobody is going to say 100%, but a lot of them have 4-5 9's
KRS1: diametric agreed
jurov: because PHP
mircea_popescu: it's not economical to get 100% anything.
diametric: Also large datacenters are managed poorly. I used to work for Digex, which was then bought by Worldcom, and then bought by Verizon.
mircea_popescu: you could have a dedicated 10gbit pipe for your blog. that wouldn't be 100%, it'd be "all those instances when you get hit with less than 10gbps"
KRS1: there are 100%'ers out there..in fact I think its quite common for hosting servers..not necessarily php applications though
diametric: The shit show that went on there was amazing
assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!
mircea_popescu: diametric what they do ?
diametric: mircea_popescu: top tier hosting, we hosted all of JP Morgans main infrastructure, USPS, Ford Motor Company, tons of big players. We one had a janitor take out an entire farm because he backed his mop handle into the emergency power stop switch
Vexual: i remmeber all my isps log were available and mistyped passwords got logged
mircea_popescu: this sounds like dilbert
diametric: Unix Tech Ops would routine fuck in the datacenters too
KRS1: mircea_popescu I'm specifically talking uptime, not throughput though..your servers should always be accessible..hosting php apps, application level hosting however, is a completely different situation and agreed, almost impossible to host applicactions with 100% availability
diametric: routinely*
mircea_popescu: so what's wrong with dc fucking ?
KRS1: .bait
ozbot: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4d2f3F4t01r6630fo1_1280.jpg

mircea_popescu: KRS1 well yes, but it quickly becomes an academic point. "system is online, it does nothing but reply to pings"
KRS1: I'd fuck that in a datacenter
KRS1: well with OS availability, ssh, for instance
diametric: KRS1: a lot of top tier 1 providers throw hissy fits too.
diametric: Like Cogent de-peers with people every week
diametric: Level3 and Cogent feud constantly
mircea_popescu: yeah
mircea_popescu: what else are they do to ? think : if they fucked in each other's dcs more...

diametric: KRS1: if Tier 1 providers de-peer from each other it could result in partial outages
mircea_popescu: well temporary bad routes at least
diametric: yeah
mircea_popescu: diametric you and dub should be friends.
KRS1: what mircea_popescu sounds more reasonable, I've been the victim of that too, where some of my customers were able to reach my hosts, but not others
diametric: mircea_popescu: i have no idea who that is
KRS1: thats up to that DC staff to fix with their providers
KRS1: but temporary outages..no
diametric: KRS1: yeah, but would you really call that 100% uptime?
KRS1: bad routes yes
diametric: I mean some people would I guess
mircea_popescu: diametric he's a guy working in a dc, seeing it with exactly the same eyes
diametric: but then once you attach exceptions like that, your definition of 100% is kind of bunk anyway.
diametric: mircea_popescu: ahh, well its been many years since I worked in that space. I left it around 2004
mircea_popescu: only a dictator would want 100% uptime anyway.
KRS1: diametric bad routes are not the fault of the datacenter, but the network provider connecting to them dude
diametric: mircea_popescu: you'd be surprised the SLAs some customers demand
KRS1: mircea_popescu its not uncommon for requests, and provision of 100% uptime
mircea_popescu: being one of those customers...
diametric: haha
KRS1: application level (php hosting for instance) is out of the question i think
mircea_popescu: for instance : i get first dibs on any piece of hardware replaced-as-broken anywhere on the pipe to my machines
diametric: KRS1: from the customers point of view it doesn't matter. They don't want to hear why your provider has issues, they want to know why you didn't anticipate them and have alternatives in place to mitigate it.
diametric: which is why you rarely see anyone offer 100% uptime, it just opens you up to fail
KRS1: diametric i see 100% uptime guarantee quite often.
KRS1: Idk..I've been doing this almost 20 years, I could be wrong though.
diametric: I'm sure its 100% (*)
KRS1: of course

mike_c: put value = (strike/spot - 1). so when you sell, your profit is whatever you got for the sale minus that.
jurov: it makes little sense if you don't put collateral into picture
mike_c: as far as ROI you mean
mike_c: ROI is different from profit, but yeah, that would be helpful.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I'll find out in two days, maybe.
mike_c: one thing i think it helps with is finding the most profitable strike given an 'expected price'.

ozbot: When Does BitBet Money Come In? - Btc Alpha
mike_c: i was surprised by the results too
mircea_popescu: i wasn't cause i have them, but the fact is there's so much counterintuitive if not outright fucking weird shit going on in btc
mircea_popescu: that really the lukewarm derpage people waste their time with is a sore waste.
mircea_popescu: mike_c "as well as the starting wager of whoever created the bet." is this sound ?
mike_c: i didn't want it to throw off the results. what i wanted to see was whether other people are being attracted to bets early.
kakobrekla: how about adding a weight adjusted line to that chart, plain linear?
pizzaman1337: imo that curve is a result of the "new bets" and "closing soon" sections on the left hand side. More visibility, more bets.
mike_c: i also ran the numbers bucketing by weight instead of by time, but it gets weird because bets can close early when there is still a high weight.
kakobrekla: aha
mircea_popescu: yes but see, a large part of late action is rebalancing of odds either according to new developments or others positioning.
pizzaman1337: that too
mircea_popescu: and since it's impossible to take out later readjustments of the bettor, you can't really take out his original stake either. course i suppose what exactly you're trying to see
mike_c: i have the numbers with those bets in as well. not as different as you would think. the sum of btc isn't that high.
mircea_popescu: i know (and for that matter house bets don't change much either)
mircea_popescu: more arguing for the principle of the thing than anything

mircea_popescu: gambling and finance are strictly distinct.
mircea_popescu: finance is shorthand for resource allocation. gambling is shorthand for risk pricing
mircea_popescu: these two activities are often found jointly in nature, like any house building will involve carpentry and masonry
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, they have nothing at all in common.
Apocalyptic: mircea, wait, you're saying risk pricing isn't a subdomain of finance ?
mircea_popescu: that's what i'm saying.
Apocalyptic: i've always included the latter in the former somehow
mircea_popescu: why do you think bankers fail so miserabl,y at it ?
mircea_popescu: it works both ways, gamblers are notoriously bad at keeping the bills paid in time
mircea_popescu: even if they do have the money. they "forget" or whateverthefuck.
mike_c: but not by definition. there are gamblers that are responsible with money.
mike_c: like phil hellmuth
mircea_popescu: just mental tendencies.
mircea_popescu: obviously people being people there'l;l be exceptions to any stereotype
mike_c: so you are saying gambling=carpentry and finance=house building. in that case, i am interested in the carpentry aspect of finance.
mircea_popescu: nothin' wrong with that.
mike_c: although that is probably pigeon-holing it a bit.
benkay: what in this metaphor is the practice of acquiring capital?
mircea_popescu: did hellmuth actually win any one wsop/wsoe main event ?
mircea_popescu: benkay what is this practice ?
mike_c: he was youngest main event winner for a long time
mircea_popescu: o he's the guy that beat up chan nm
mircea_popescu: yeah it came to me
Apocalyptic: mike_c, wasn't that phil lakk ?
benkay: some people practice risk management, right? and others practice 'finance' (whatever that is) - carpentry and housebuilding. but what about simply acquiring power and wealth?
Apocalyptic: or whatever his lastname is spelled
mike_c: no, he won at 24

mike_c: no rss feed yet. coming this week.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the hellmuth guy, i recall this horrible loss to a romanian player, who had called a re-raise with a low pair or something
mircea_popescu: hellmuth folded a walking back to huston arrangement and then got all pissy
mike_c: yeah, his nickname is the poker brat for a reason.

pankkake: yeah… lol
Apocalyptic: according to http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071005223326AAxjjiN it's related to a holding company, weird

mircea_popescu: diametric it's a convenient conviction.
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic the "zero asset" thing is a term of art. a company that retains none of its income but distributes it all as dividends.
mircea_popescu: it has a better risk profile for the bitcoin investor than the alternative (if you review the early history of btc scams, 2011s, you'll see most corps turned scams once the "ceo" confronted the problem of "we have cashflow. what to do with that cash ?". ☟︎
mircea_popescu: somehow "distribute it" never comes to mind. a problem fiat shares, for that matter. (buffett has some great comments on the topic)
