TheNewDeal: mike_c , what I'm saying is that some people don't know how to calculate a good difficulty
mike_c: diff is mean-spirited asshole.
TheNewDeal: April, May, and :June were all Nos
mike_c: ok, so with your superior prognostication, what weight did you get on the may bet?

TheNewDeal: never said I had superior prognostication
mike_c: hehe. it was implied by "some people can't calculate"
TheNewDeal: I bet at the end of march
TheNewDeal: bet was started at the end of january
TheNewDeal: here's the thing
mike_c: k. betting that difficulty won't double in a month is not "betting against diff"

TheNewDeal: I have no problems with jurov
mike_c: i'm not trying to bust balls, i'm honestly curious.
TheNewDeal: let me throw out a hypothetical here
TheNewDeal: let's say I am comfortable investing 10 BTC through coinbr ( I'm not)
TheNewDeal: to me, a healthy return over one year (in BTC) would be 10%
TheNewDeal: that makes 11 BTC
TheNewDeal: subtract account management fees, and thats 10.76
mike_c: ok, i'm with you
TheNewDeal: with NO withdrawls, that has just taken 1/4 of my profits over a year
mike_c: ok. so point #1, you think it's too expensive. but why wouldn't you be comfortable putting in 10 btc?
TheNewDeal: that's over 1/2 of my ownership
TheNewDeal: not an early adopter
mike_c: but you would be comfortable putting that much on bitbet?
TheNewDeal: most definitely
TheNewDeal: for instance
TheNewDeal: if I put down 10 BTC on this bet http://bitbet.us/bet/635/1btc-10-000-usd/
assbot: BitBet - 1BTC >= $10,000 USD :: 75 B (15%) on Yes, 415.18 B (85%) on No | closing in 5 months 22 hours | weight: 42`696 (100`000 to 1)
TheNewDeal: the return is sitting at ~9% over a 5 month period
TheNewDeal: and it's a hedge
mike_c: interesting. jurov, you need more WoT :)
TheNewDeal: it has nothing to do with trust
mike_c: well, it does if you're comfortable putting 10 btc in bitbet and not coinbr
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 9528 @ 0.00080251 = 7.6463 BTC [+]
TheNewDeal: coinbr is restricted to MPOE stocks, and I'm very unfamiliar with them compared to those who trade
TheNewDeal: on bitbet, I can pick and choose what I feel comfortable with
mike_c: ok. lemme ask this then. if you thought you could get a 20% return on coinbr in a year, would you invest 10 btc?
TheNewDeal: perhaps less
TheNewDeal: what I would really like to do is start off with 2 or so BTC until I feel comfortable with it
TheNewDeal: but that would be a waste of money
mike_c: how would you feel if the monthly fee were lower and the trading fees higher?
TheNewDeal: dislike
mike_c: well.. something's gotta cost. brokers aren't free.
TheNewDeal: I would prefer that he were like a hedge fund manager, making % off your winnings
mike_c: hm. hedge fund managers get a fee too.
mike_c: besides performance fees
kakobrekla: depends.
kakobrekla: :D
TheNewDeal: usually is a tiny percentage of what they manage
punkman: tweaked bitbet strategy: 10 BTC for 500x 0.02 bets, net gain 3.92 BTC
TheNewDeal: punkman, have you done this successfully?
punkman: I think I will try
punkman: just testing over past bets
mike_c: except kako, who won't take any money unless he thinks he earns it (very un-hedge fund like)
kakobrekla: lol, less scammy.
TheNewDeal: the thing I also like about bitbet is that you can pick off bets that are almost for sure winners, and look for a certain return
moiety: nothing wrong with that, i'm same
mike_c: right up until you're wrong :)
moiety: how can you be wrong wanting to earn your money XD
punkman: well if this retarded strategy can do 46% I think I got some margin for error
TheNewDeal: that doesnt make sense to me
TheNewDeal: arent you just picking and choosing past bets that would make money?
punkman: no
TheNewDeal: you're betting on everything?
kakobrekla: 46% what ?
punkman: 10.16 BTC in, net gain 4.59 BTC
punkman: betting on no, skipping certain bets
TheNewDeal: lol
TheNewDeal: how would you know which to skip?
mike_c: punkman: you should look into some of the theory about backtesting. like, you can't use the same data you develop your hypothesis on to test your strategy.
kakobrekla: yeap
kakobrekla: well you can
kakobrekla: but it will be shit prolly.
mike_c: heh, yes. "can't" is a strong word.
kakobrekla: :D
TheNewDeal: is there a minimum for password protected bets?
mike_c: TheNewDeal: last comment from me, i'm really not trying to sell you. But that 'tiny percentage' you were talking about from hedge fund managers is usually 2%. which is the same fee as coinbr in your 10 BTC example.
TheNewDeal: 2% is more like a fee for an index fund
kakobrekla: the retarded standard is 2/20
TheNewDeal: 2% fee and 20% of profit?
kakobrekla: yes 2% mgmt fee, 20 profit allocation
kakobrekla will burn your money for free.
TheNewDeal: mike_c if you read what I said, I told you that I was NOT comfortable risking 10 BTC on coinbr/mpoe
TheNewDeal: I said something more like 2 BTC to begin with
mike_c: yup, i got that. just talking about the fees.
TheNewDeal: ;;calc .02*12/2
gribble: 0.12
punkman: mike_c, wanna make some synthetic data for testing?
TheNewDeal: punkman, are you betting both sides, or are you just picking winners :p
mike_c: punkman: you can cut up the data you have into pieces. but I really don't think there's enough for much confidence in results.
mike_c: strategy like MPIF's is really based more on a belief about how the system works rather than statistical analysis.
mike_c: but even that was better tested. hypothesis was formed before the analysis, not as a result of the analysis.

mike_c: understood. i just see you as a good potential customer for coinbr, so I was trying to dig into why you were hesitant. i think i get it.

We tried to get the

nubbins`: 18-22 is "nice"

nubbins`: strange
Cosmos: lol
Cosmos: no, i'm looking for tips
Cosmos: from having assembled & tested the info, written review, & freely advertised the sites
Cosmos: I've gotten some from 2 sites so far
mircea_popescu: well, ok, here's a tip : you've found the place where bitcoin actually happens. if you spend your next year reading the logs (they're in the topic) you'll be better off than if you spend your year doing anything else.
mircea_popescu: also, since you seem linguistically inclined, fluffypony was hiring someone to do summarization of same logs.
mircea_popescu: it may be he has a further job for an eager but diligent young man
Cosmos: you have my ears

mircea_popescu: preferably in the terms of, "anyone who didn't obey mp blindly on the score got raped, sorry, insert quarter to play again" ?

Cosmos: and w/ relatively low / obscure unknown rep, too
mircea_popescu: sure. my girl paid people once in the same way.
Cosmos: excluding the 'personalities' and hero members etc
nubbins`: "paid" is almost not the right word
Cosmos: that's why I called it 'tipping'
nubbins`: someone tosses you a couple of pennies, you don't call it a paycheque
Cosmos: just as a token of appreciation
BingoBoingo: I think you misunderstand the root of tipping.
BingoBoingo: The word tip cleanly refers to a bribe of sorts... To Insure Prompt service.

Cosmos: you donate because I will change the world for good
mircea_popescu: whereas tips fall squarely in the charity thing

nubbins`: create-your-own-protip

Cosmos: ahh you use 'Western'! my gf wants to slap me everytime i use that word, she identifies with it too much
Cosmos: That's fine
Cosmos: As long as she was mature for her age & was consenting
mircea_popescu: drove people up the wall at the time.

benkay: <mircea_popescu> decimation: now, why do you suppose those who work in the bezzle economy are showered with special favors while those who work in the "real economy" are treated as serfs? <<< here's the thing : real estate agents are certified, and have to be bondend in many places, and have to follow best practices, and can and are put to the coals ifthey do not.
benkay: reminds me of a great hustle a neighbor got put through recently
benkay: house immediately downhill from the 'rents went on sale for 900k, reasoning being "well it was built by and inhabited by Dr. Hawthorne of this grand street a few blocks over who also built the insanitarium at the top of said street which is now a seminary"
benkay: the people doing the sale failed to do it on their own at 900k, so this vulture swooped in, started ratcheting the price down and as all the buyers trickled in said something along the lines of "I know that this isn't really what you're looking for, but how about I give you a call sometime next week and I'll show you some houses that might fit your budget and expectations a little bit better".
benkay: two months later, the house has been dragged down from 900k to 700k, and that broker has straight ghosted with all the leads she generated via excellent hustle.
benkay: so while best practices are a thing and brokers do get put to the coals, as with all regulated things only the dumb and most obviously rule-breaky are going to get their feet torched. i can't imagine it being any other way with programmering - the smart ones will shift the blame to the dumb ones, who will take the fall. age old story.
benkay: and what is this "not liable for errors" crap y'all are spouting? i have to fight for that clause in every contract I take on.
benkay: i have no idea what rat fuck of code i'm taking on, and i'm sure as hell not taking responsibility for your untested ball of hair falling over because this private method is getting called by your SUPER IMPORTANT WEEKLY REPORTs.

mircea_popescu: but that aside, the openssl recent string of bugs WOULD have been of the coal kind
mircea_popescu: which is exactly how it was argued for software responsibility immunity in the 80s : that ALL software failures are clearly of a coal-abl etype, and so not granting immunity would make software "impossible"
benkay: nah, torch anyone who implemented it in their own codebasen. no crime in releasing shit to the world, only a crime to put that shit in your cliquot
mircea_popescu: rms and co really meant "bad software" but just said "software", and "plain language" being what it is, who's to know the difference.
