mike_c: fwiw, they seem to have better management than neobee
mircea_popescu sings .. i'm the king of the repartee, the asshole vip...
mike_c: but that is saying very little
mircea_popescu: mike_c sure. hence the slow motion.
mike_c: yeah
mircea_popescu: i don't even recall, did they publish their total processed / gross fees for q1 ? 2013 ? anything ?
davout: well maybe the reason for taking investment is not that they're unprofitable, but that they need it to grow faster, am i missing something obvious to discrimnate between those two?
mike_c: what about acquisitions? that is a common exit path and could make money for fiat investors.
mircea_popescu: i know they keep derping about how merchants went from 4k to 40k, but... w/e
mircea_popescu: davout yes, the neobee connection
mircea_popescu: mike_c private acquisition is also scam.
mike_c: davout: point is they aren't cash-flow positive, so they can't be socking away a pile of btc.
mircea_popescu: for that matter, in no acquihire do the investors see a dime
mike_c: no acquihire, sure. but there are profitable acquisitions (for the acquiree)
davout: mike_c: they published the figures?
mircea_popescu: mike_c they're rare.
mike_c: davout: they are spending more than they make. this is why they need investment. be it for growth, does not matter. they are still spending more then they make.
mike_c: mircea_popescu: see whatsapp
davout: mike_c: yeah, i understand "cash-flow negative" :D
mircea_popescu: the best construction for btc value conservation is if their management is good enough to copy s.mg, and basically they just take the investment turn it to btc and wait
mircea_popescu: this we know they're not doing.
BingoBoingo: First they call MP a pornographer, then they call him a scammer, later the ignore him... Next they call MP a witch?
davout: the question i'm asking is "how do you know?"
mike_c: because they keep taking investments. you don't sell pieces of your company for money you don't need.
mircea_popescu: mike_c yeah ok, sure. facebook is paying 20bn for bitpay because gallipi & his sister gave zuck such good rusty trombones.
davout: mike_c: makes sense, ty!
mircea_popescu: lol on 5th pass

asciilifeform: so far my favourite taleb is that link mp posted earlier

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah this is an interesting point. people believe [because they're trained in school to believe and they never examine it ?] that the "proper" form is and they're at their best in book form

kakobrekla: It is true that Bitcoin outperformed Nasty Mining. Bitcoin had an amazing 2 years of growth and was exposed to billions of people. However, funds invested in Nasty Mining were spent in USD on items that are valued in USD. In fact, pretty much everything is valued in USD (or your local fiat currency), which is why BTC is valued at the conversion rate at the time of transfer to any real organization. It only makes sense to value Nasty Mi
assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!
kakobrekla: USD when comparing it over time. The performance we've had is astounding, and just because it lags behind the performance of Bitcoin should not take away from that. We've still managed to outperform more than 99% of the other things you could have spent your BTC on. Silver for example was $28.50 on our IPO date and is $19.50 now, yet I don't see you trolling silver dealers on here.

mircea_popescu: “All issuers selling securities to the public must comply with the registration provisions of the securities laws, including issuers who seek to raise funds using Bitcoin,” said Andrew J. Ceresney, the SEC’s enforcement director in a press release. “We will continue to focus on enforcing our rules and regulations as they apply to digital currencies.”

mircea_popescu: byut anyway, the circus is the circus. this is why we call it the circus, this is why we despise it, this is what it does.
mircea_popescu: "vcs", "entrepreneurs", "consulting", "conferences", "startups", "deals", "investing" and so on and so forth till you're bored.

mircea_popescu: why's your gpg in a vm anyway
unbalanced: But before I do, I agree MP, I didn't take not winning the hackathon badly, I only said my thing wasn't "good enough" because a) it wasn't all done in time and b) my math was less than accurate. Empirically not good enough for anyone to use.

mircea_popescu: how is blockchain any less anon than cash ?
mircea_popescu: unbalanced oic
justusranvier: Because there are always sidechannels
justusranvier: And badly written clients
unbalanced: Carelessness + pattern recognition etc.
mircea_popescu: justusranvier so are there for cash.
mircea_popescu: talkative prostitutes and bills of sale
justusranvier: Cash doesn't have an eternal, publicly searchable ledger
mircea_popescu: according to whom ?
justusranvier: Is there a USDchain.info where anyone can view every transaction that ever occurred with a given bill?
mircea_popescu: all the cash that exists exists. by this it can be counted
mircea_popescu: there you go.
mircea_popescu: anyone capable of busting in can count your cash as well as you can
mircea_popescu: but you're not proposing the correct equivalence
justusranvier: Sure, but that can't traced its history
mircea_popescu: neither can bitcoin's.
justusranvier: In many cases, you can.
mircea_popescu: in many cases you can for cash too
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 15151 @ 0.00082999 = 12.5752 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: like, if you leave a fingerprint on a bill
mircea_popescu: or if you get caught with series-fixed bills after a bank robbery
mircea_popescu: or w/e
justusranvier: All of those approaches you mention for cash only operate on a subset of the "address space". Graph analysis of the blockchain can look at the entire data set, forever.
justusranvier: People skilled in that art can do a lot more, given the improved access to information
mircea_popescu: i doubt this is true.
mircea_popescu: because correspondingly, you are forced by cash to physical interaction
justusranvier: This isn't even a particularly good tool, and it breakes blockchain.info mixing: http://www.coinjoinsudoku.com/

mircea_popescu: blockchain.info mixing is a joke. break bitbet mixing.
justusranvier: I'll suggest that
mircea_popescu: so you know, getting caught with cash in your possesion can be a forced mistake
mircea_popescu: getting caught with bitcoin can never be a forced mistake
mircea_popescu: anyway, the fact that bitcoin is not actually traceable, and all the sophistry of taint can at most produce persuasion is one of the largest points of pressure applied by bitcoin to human society. it may result in the "reasonable doubt" standard being taken out.
mircea_popescu: much in the way the internet has forced the brits into their first secret "trial", something they've not had in about 11 centuries.

justusranvier: It's there for people who are extremely careful and make no mistakes.
justusranvier: There are better ways of achieving privacy that aren't quite so fragile
mircea_popescu: so basically the idea is to make it more accessible ?
justusranvier: Basically
mircea_popescu: cause otherwise this discussion is exactlylike email privacy. i have all the email privacy i could want, because gpg
mircea_popescu: you're gonna tell me there's no privacy in email either ?
justusranvier: All the email privacy you could want? You must not want to have privacy regarding the fact that you're sending messages, nor the recipients of those messages.
justusranvier: Or subject lines

mike_c: having a block an hour does not feel optimal.
unbalanced: The diff is still unfolding so I don't have a final number yet. I haven't wanted to calculate it or I might stop.
mike_c: i ran the numbers, but I won't tell if you don't want to know :)
unbalanced: thestringpuller, by "dump" mike_c meant a pastebin link somewhere above, detailing how to use leaserig.net to employ mining rigs on demand.
mircea_popescu: mike_c sotell me then :D
unbalanced: See also #altcoin... that channel needs new blood.
unbalanced closes his eyes
mike_c: it's like we have discussed before. it affects merchants. it's not as easy to move coin around. this makes little difference for the occasional user, but 1 hour block time on average means sometimes 2+ hours for a block.
unbalanced: Rough back-of-the-envelope I'd say 400 satoshis per ATC if I'm lucky. Is that what you got mike_c or am I off by an order of magnitude?
mike_c: i got 371
unbalanced: Profit!
mircea_popescu: mike_c what merchants ?!
mike_c: and i ran the numbers before btc diff went up, so it could be better
mike_c: cuz the miners should have dropped in price.
mike_c: mircea_popescu: x-bt for one. is satoshijack still around? plus possibly some other merchants in development.

mircea_popescu: in principle tho the pools are open to this "who's willing to lose most money" attack, they could start doing it to each other (and perhaps the larger ones have done it to ensure their position already - it's disputed)

mircea_popescu: (if they actually were detectable they'd logically be prevetnable too)
mircea_popescu: Mats_cd03 me either tbh
davout: to me it sounds retarded to confiscate such an amount on a suspicion, especially when the suspected attacker has no economic incentive to be attacking in the first place
mircea_popescu: "My guess is that they never expected to get caught and suffer income loss as a result of their attack. But, once they were caught, I put a filter in place to block them from the payout queue (similar to the block on known MtGox addresses). Eligius’s offline wallet now has roughly 200 BTC work credits held from the payout queue under the attacker's addresses, that we have stopped them from stealing."
Vexual: well the other 50% prevents it, and as you tend to 100%, it becomes unprofitable
mircea_popescu: so elegius is stealing from some miner they had an argument with.
Vexual: how godly
mircea_popescu: why the fuck would someone keep a 200 btc balance, and esp with elegius, is beyong me.
Mats_cd03: Kurds create sovereign state recognized by majority of nations by 2015?
mircea_popescu: "When they noticed, weeks later, they contacted us complaining.

mircea_popescu: o look, it's also closing ? isn't this one of the oldest pools still (sort-of) standing ?
kakobrekla: elegius deceiving users? wouldn't be the first time.
mircea_popescu: "P.S. - This is unrelated to any of the stats issues that have occurred. (Server migration for the new web server is still under way…)"
dub: inb4: I'd explain but you wouldnt understand
mircea_popescu: well the more persuasive explanation is, elegius fucked up a server upgrade (on its sole server, if you don't count an old backup box which is never live anyway), lost some user's accounts
kakobrekla: how much CP does 200btc buy Luke-Jr ?
mircea_popescu: and is now going into uberderpage mode to cover it up

nubbins`: ah
mircea_popescu: the even more logical conclusion : there's some miner going around with 32 bit hardware, that's unable to correctly handle 64 bit nonces

mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete they're not limited to being accessible to us citizens. they're limited to being accessible to that one corp that makes the most convincing case it'll be useful.

kakobrekla: hm
jurov: can you, say, lift the limit if the payout address had seen some volume previously?
kakobrekla: wouldnt be much point if there would be a easy workaround
kakobrekla: i raised the limit now so you can do your thing

mircea_popescu: mdev there's a world out there made of agglomerated shitheads, who imagine themselves innovators and revolutionaries, but in practice live out of not-invented-here syndrome and bad pr.
mircea_popescu: the world in here is quite opposite. if someone does something well everyone breathes a sigh of relief and uses it.
FlyDuch: guys can i sell btc for ltc here
mircea_popescu: because life's too short to re-do all the shit all the time

mircea_popescu: best use gribble's sale function.
mdev: just putting a lot of trust in nanotube, i've never seen really the guy talk but I think he owns gribble as well, and is founder of #bitcoin as well

Apocalyptic: I guess mircea is running low on entertainment tonight :)
mircea_popescu: i'm just reactively tolerant
mircea_popescu: the truth of the matter is that i don't have an actual personality, i just do the opposite of what y'all are doing.
mircea_popescu: so if you're all drama llamas i'ma just be mellow.
kakobrekla: basically he thinks we are dumb.
mircea_popescu: wait wut ?
kakobrekla: well if you are doing the opposite of something you prolly are not in agreement with it
pankkake: !up mdev
mdev: ty
mircea_popescu: or maybe i just like living interesting times.
kakobrekla: maybe. or the other thing.
mircea_popescu: generally, i rarely think someone is as smart as they think themselves. similarly, i rarely think someone is as dumb as they think themselves. so there :D

mike_c: dumb question: is there any way to cryptographically prove you signed something on a certain date.
mircea_popescu: mike_c include the date.
mike_c: but i could sign something today with june 1st in it.
mike_c: i don't think there is, but thought i'd ask to make sure i wasn't missing some clever trick.
mircea_popescu: sure there's plenty depending what you want.
mircea_popescu: if you want to declare the date being x, include the date.
mircea_popescu: if you want to prove the date is no earlier than X, include a block hash say.

mike_c: like, i want to be able to say today "here is proof that I signed this on June 1st, not June 13th"

fluffypony: !up mdev
mdev: thankyou!
mdev: but yeah as other have said the problem with date is you can set it to what you want, so only way to confirm the date is used a 3rd party someone trusts
mdev: or various I suppose
mike_c: ah, so, like stuff something in the blockchain
fluffypony: mike_c: that's the other option
mircea_popescu: mike_c blockchain, here, whatever.
fluffypony: or pastebin
mdev: bitcoin trusts no ones date, they don't use dates they use difficulty I think
mircea_popescu: your blog for that matter.
mdev: and try and average solving to 10 minutes
fluffypony: dependent on your penchance for risk
fluffypony: !down mdev
mdev: even though it's gone over an hour before...

fluffypony: mike_c: what sort of longevity do you need on it?
kakobrekla: are you thinking carbon dating?
fluffypony: lol
mike_c: well, basically what i said. i want to be able to say "here's the signed statement. here is incontravertible proof i have not mucked with it since XX date"
fluffypony: [01:15:01] mdev: your abuse won't be tolerated
fluffypony: lol
fluffypony: mike_c: pastebin it (pastebin keeps the date) + dump the signature here
fluffypony: even if pastebin disappears you have a copy, and the signature can be verified by any of us that keep logs
mike_c: log.b-a or my blog still requires trust. blockchain doesn't, but i'm not a fan of abusing chain for this kind of stuff. pastebin i guess works. nobody would believe they were in on the scamz.
fluffypony: yeah but you forget
fluffypony: log.b-a isn't the only log
fluffypony: I log, and I'm sure dozens of others do
kakobrekla: theres the way-back-machine
kakobrekla: you can prolly leverage that
fluffypony: oh yes good point kakobrekla - you can add a link to archive.org on a particular date
mike_c: that thing still works? impressive.
mircea_popescu: still requires trusty
mircea_popescu: the thing is, the hardcore future problem is not resolvable, as entropy only goes one way
mircea_popescu: and so information accumulates.
fluffypony: mike_c: upload it to Maidsafe!
mircea_popescu: you can prove you know something and so establish it one way, but you can't prove you didn't know something.
mike_c: not 100% resolvable, but blockchain stuffing comes close.
mircea_popescu: actually stuffing it here is probably better.
mircea_popescu: blocks reorg. how do you know you won't end up on a dead chain
kakobrekla: you wait 6 confs.
kakobrekla: duh
mike_c: the thing is, it depends who you are "proving" to. since i am a b-a lackey, clearly i could get the logs mucked with. and nobody is going to care that fluffypony's copy agrees with it.
fluffypony: yeah I suppose
fluffypony: you could've paid us all
mircea_popescu: it's on the web lol.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, since you're in bitcoin, clearly you could have the blockchain mucked.
mike_c: true. i do own ghash.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the problem as stated is unresolvable. as the future includes the past, you can't by yourself prove you were anterior to a point. only ulteriority can be proven that hardcore
