BingoBoingo: MisterE: Post I linked though was me telling them to get a time machine, because Gox's death should be the 11th least surprising thing in Bitcoin this year.
MisterE: never get shit from the Japs
MisterE: guess that was what the Gox premium was worth
BingoBoingo: Well, the gox premium was worth an inability to withdraw fiat, the gox discount is worth an inability to withdraw BTC. The discount won in the end because People want BTC moar. Free markets at work.
lnovy: Mark might have created bitcoin futures, this will be hilarious :)
dub: the only thing japanese about gox is tux' dirty panty collection
BingoBoingo: I don't think Mark did much other than Highlight why PHP should never touch commands passed to a bitcoin deamon (hopefully not bitcoind for too much longer)
BingoBoingo: Jed though invented a lot of things, that Mark gets too much credit for.
lnovy: I don't think bitcoin public cares about that much details :)

lnovy: but think about it... yes you can have your coins... for sure... in 2384 ;)
lnovy: <MagicalTux> Well, technically speaking it's not "lost" just yet, just
lnovy: temporarily unavailable"
lnovy: what _else_ could it be? :)
BingoBoingo: lnovy: The Bitcoin public is rather small.
lnovy: it was :(
BingoBoingo: lnovy: No. If anything the actual Bitcoin public has shrank considerably since the fall of 2012
lnovy: these are still new ages...
BingoBoingo: Of course.
BingoBoingo: It is still new ages, but this week a lot of people who though they were "in" Bitcoin realized they never stopped being n00bs in spite of having been around for the great silk road bubble of 2011
lnovy: yeah... the only way to learn that the stove is hot is to get burned...
lnovy: some people just don't learn :/
d34th: i learned by putting my hand near and feeling the heat
lnovy: you don't remember :) heat is heat, pain is pain
d34th: getting burnt by a stove isnt true pain
d34th: true pain is frying bacon naked
lnovy: !
d34th: you endure for a sweet reward at the end
BingoBoingo: Catch is Gox had no bacon
lnovy: Quote #957400 is pending moderation.
BingoBoingo: The more you read on GOx the further you push pack the date where red flags became evident in retrospect.

B007: I'm glad I don't have anything in GOX
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: the people who by all rights ought to be taking some heat, but aren't, are the enablers.
asciilifeform: the u.s. media of whom gox is arguably a creature.
asciilifeform: and now that it's dead, they will be sure to send the cattle directly to whatever replaces it in scamspace.
asciilifeform: (under no circumstances are cattle permitted to wander unguided, mp had a piece on this if i recall)
BingoBoingo: Well, If the US media was really that effective at promoting trends from Japan I would expect more emergency room visits from squid and octopus related injuries of the genitalia. Alas...
asciilifeform: afaik, gox is japanese solely in the geographic sense.

cads: hey mircea_popescu, is there a simple terms explanation for what it means for a brownian process B(t) to be adapted relative to a filtration F_t? I understand that it means that for each t B(t) is F_t measurable, that is, B(t) is always fully measurable against the data F_t carries. In particular we do not require events available only to some future refinement F_s of the filtration.
cads: I'm wondering where does the filtration come from to begin with.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Very informative.
cads: I think I could see that the family of stopping times of a given process might let us create a filtration that other processes could be adapted to.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: not sure if 'informative' is the word, but educational, perhaps.
cads: Oh, all processes have natural filtrations.

If you’ve been following up to here you probably have a question in your mind : what in the world were they going to do with a billion of their own money ? Good question. The fund had access to heavy leverage, as high as 100:1 in many cases. One billion leveraged 100:1 means one hundred billio
mircea_popescu: n, and turn it any way you please there’s not going to be room for deplyoing a hundred billion in capital for the purpose of arbitraging minute differences between the 29 y T and the current T. There just can’t be.

mircea_popescu: imagine a truck driver that can't drive double clutch.
cazalla: i sent him an email but he didn't respond
nubbins`: i had a professor once who could only speak in a whisper and so brought a mic to class and amplified it so heavily you could hear him swallow his spit
mircea_popescu: sort-of like a vessenes that can't handle a mic
nubbins`: he would freeze if anyone made a sound (like opening a bookbag, etc)
nubbins`: mid-syllable sometimes
mircea_popescu: at the one uni where i sort-of flirted with academia, this was banned on campus.

mircea_popescu: this is probably apocriphal as such, but it is reflective of various actual events. normally it's retold as
mircea_popescu: "at mit, they made this self-learning machine which would try to make deductions sylogistically on a dictionary of natural language constructs
mircea_popescu: they let it run overnight, among the conclusions it had arrived to by morning was "napoleon had an infinite number of arms"
mircea_popescu: the thought process being, napoleon was a great general, great generals are forewarned, being forewarned is like having an extra pair of arms,
nubbins`: well, he did!
nubbins`: why do you think he was so short!
mircea_popescu: four is an odd number of arms for a man to have, the only both odd and even number is infinity

mircea_popescu: or a bunch of other bitcoin "businesses" ?
nubbins`: sure, so why did this selkis guy decide to redact page 8?
mircea_popescu: nubbins` possibly because it had passwords on it ?
nubbins`: why would you redact a bunch of numbers on a document about a failing exchange -- a document that you're releasing
nubbins`: mircea_popescu: the redactions were black highlights. you could copypasta them.
mircea_popescu: not proposing any of the foregoing as factual or anything, merely exploring teh theory of it.
nubbins`: black highlights added to the pdf by selkis himself
mircea_popescu: nubbins` point in case as to the "we don't deserve to run a business" thing
mircea_popescu: "we can't even use office equipment properly"
nubbins`: nonono
cazalla: maybe he was asked to redact it by whoever gave it to him to leak because if it was given to potential investors, they might not want the financials out there

mircea_popescu: @SpiegelPeter Is Syria a neighbour of the US? You may want to re-read original Kennan quote.
mircea_popescu: @Mircea_Popescu Yes, it borders on the US province of Iraq. You may wish to drop the weasel act, we're adults, we can see through bs.

mircea_popescu: mooninite how does the gear threadmill work ?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 13125 @ 0.00088005 = 11.5507 BTC [-]
mooninite: at max level, everyone's gear stats hit the same ceiling. There's no quest for bigger and better loots. Some people dislike this fact, but I find it nice to be able to quit playing for a few weeks, come back and not feel like everyone else progressed beyond me
mooninite: there are ascended and legendary items that would be the sort of 'epic' rarity loots but their stats are barely higher than the regular items, only they look nicer and have particle effects
mooninite: so it's a level playing field, and if you want to farm and go out of your way to get the rarest items, you can -- but they will not immediately make you stronger than everyone else, it's just for looks
mircea_popescu: so how the heck does crafting work then ?
the20year2: *possibly* dumb question, but would it be possible to request the listing of an asset on mpex via a pre-existing account, or does it have to be done from a brand new one?
mircea_popescu: the20year2 there's no requirement it be a new account
mircea_popescu: i don't think any assets were listed off new accounts anyway, what sense'd that make ?
mike_c: % as rent has more to do with density, no?
the20year2: My primary concern/question if the requirement is always 30btc to list an asset
mike_c: % as rent climbs as population density rises
mircea_popescu: there's no 30 btc to list an asset tho.
the20year2: But, 30btc to sign up an account
mircea_popescu: mpex works exactly like a stock exchange is supposed to work, the asset should ideally take an underwriter
mircea_popescu: which is someone with the experience and contacts required to maintain the financial side of things.
mircea_popescu: if every ipo also bought a pit spot it'd be the fucking end of the world over at nyse.
mircea_popescu: in some cases obviously the asset is owned by an actual investment bank which already has a seat. this is by no means common or the rule. esp as things mature.
the20year2: And who is the contact?
the20year2: You're talking about market makers, correct?
mircea_popescu: the contact for what exactly ?
mircea_popescu: uh no.
the20year2: the underwriter for an asset on mpex
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 23400 @ 0.00087857 = 20.5585 BTC [-] {3}
mircea_popescu: there's no requirement that the underwriter marketmakes
mircea_popescu: with the exception of x.eur and the options, mpex assets aren't mm'd specifically
mircea_popescu: anyone can be the mm or somescuh.
the20year2: I guess I'm trying to determine if there'd be use in whether there would be a use for a USD rentalstarter bond on mpex
the20year2: And if so, the costs of doing such
mircea_popescu: aha.
the20year2: We should hit $500k in total NAV by June, which is good, but i don't know if it's enough still in order to get a portfolio lender to consider us
mircea_popescu: well, if you aren't in the business, the logical step would be to talk to someone who is.
the20year2: Which was the whole idea behind doing this 2nd round of funding via havelock. So, then i've got to consider what non-share options there exist for business financing. Issuing interest bearing bonds are one of those things that many businesses do when they don't/can't apply for bank financing.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 30 @ 0.115 = 3.45 BTC [+] {3}

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 2 @ 0.11540966 = 0.2308 BTC [+]

the20year2: Hopefully I'm making sense
the20year2: The two questions are : Would a USD bond (to short BTC:USD) be useful on somewhere like mpex, and if so, what would the cost be to do such a venture from the issuer standpoint
nubbins`: wait, sorry, 25% of gross pay
nubbins`: i see
nubbins`: ~50% of net for housing is the norm here
the20year2: US they want to see 35%
mike_c: there's already a btc hedge on mpex in x.eur. i'm not sure how much appetite you'll find for a bond that will decrease in NAV and interest rate as btc rises.
nubbins`: depending on your tax bracket, that could be around 25% of gross
the20year2: and that includes usually utilities
mircea_popescu: the20year2 what makes you tihnk you have the credibility to issue bonds in the first place ?

assbot: [HAVELOCK] [NEOBEE] 68 @ 0.00599999 = 0.408 BTC [-] {2}
the20year2: I'm not aware of any, however i'm talking about the landry list of stocks out there that have.
mircea_popescu: in general companies that can't finance themselves through stock issuance have little or no hope of placing bonds successfully.
mircea_popescu: at least i've never heard of pinksheet bonds issuance.
thestringpuller: people need to stop financing period until their business actually runs
the20year2: There's a medium sized REIT i ran into out of texas that issued bonds here pretty recently in the same way I would like to do ours
