assbot: Logged on 24-04-2015 10:18:03; williamdunne: Sorry, you're right
mircea_popescu: but yes, broadly speaking the efforts of power rangers are irrelevant to bitcoin.
mircea_popescu: so dun much matter one way or teh other.
williamdunne: Personally I reckon it'll just have more people running semi-nodes, rather than less people running full
williamdunne: Especially as the blockchain is starting to get too big for cheap VPS systems used for most services
mircea_popescu: i imagine what it'll actually lead to is more people with full nodes running longer shitlists of AOL type nodes.

BingoBoingo: I really fail to see much difference between the pruning nodes and the pseudo-nodes
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo well that may be because there isn't one.
williamdunne: BingoBoingo: Pruning nodes can still validate transactions with recent inputs can they not? Or do they store all inputs. Need to read how it works
williamdunne: *all unspent outputs
williamdunne: Whereas pseudo-nodes just tell everyone everything
mircea_popescu: 'pruning' offers a guarantee that the node won't be able to offer you a block which contains all spent outputs.
BingoBoingo: williamdunne: Problem isn't the unspent tx set, it is the blocks
mircea_popescu: which is how it saves space.
williamdunne: BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: I need to read up on it first before commenting
BingoBoingo: It's hard enough to find sync worthy nodes in the wild as is
mircea_popescu: there isn't anything particularly wrong with the approach, much like there isn't anything wrong with holding up a sign, or drinking a cup of coffee.
mircea_popescu: once people involved start imagining that holding up signs / drinking coffee is relevant to bitcoin, they have somewhat of a problem
mircea_popescu: but considering the rest of the problems they have, to them it's minor, and to us... well we didn't care before, either.
williamdunne: Okay, so from a little reading it does seem that they keep the full unspent TX set. While they can't provide all the blocks to someone who wants everything from the genesis it does seem like a pretty big improvement to me - should see a lot more verifying nodes - no?
mircea_popescu: verifying nodes, yes.
mircea_popescu: this is not particularly useful tho, once you have 10 nodes doing verification, it's done. what's X gonna find that Y does not ?
mircea_popescu: meanwhile, the important function of nodes is storage.
williamdunne: Verifying nodes are good for those that care about accepting unconfirmed tx/s IIRC
mircea_popescu: it's the usg playbook : give more people the illusion of participation, so you can take more control of the underlying processes.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne explain how ? verification doesn't happen faster for having more nodes doing it.
mircea_popescu: it may happen closer to you geographically, but w/e.
williamdunne: Something to do with propogation
mircea_popescu: at best a log.
mircea_popescu: but people who actually care about 0tx are currently in practice and are in theory much better served by just keeping vpn links to actual main nodes.
williamdunne: Thats what most of them do anyway, no? i.e in Electrum
mircea_popescu: prolly.
williamdunne: Seems like it can only be beneficial if it moves some away from Electrum and onto verifying nodes
BingoBoingo: williamdunne: Electrum just does http/TLS
mircea_popescu: anyway, it's a toy, like any other. people learning and kids are more than welcome to their fun, what.
jurov: no it uses stratum/ssl but that's a tech detail
williamdunne: BingoBoingo: They connect to a single node, who you would assume is fairly well connected
BingoBoingo: ty jurov

williamdunne: I'll be on that list someday :'(

mircea_popescu: gribble went down at some point. this is rare, but whatever, happens. nanotube was also unresponsive. after a few days in this position assbot got enabled to wot
mircea_popescu: turns out the guy was just traveling at the time (was right around the new year).
williamdunne: Ah, so sort of just bad luck?
mircea_popescu: well at that time you couldn't tell what happened. for all you know, nano was usg-kidnapped.
mircea_popescu: wot is a crucial bit of infrastructure, and so it's watched and protected accordingly.
williamdunne: It'd be nice if they could connect, especially as they can still verify the signatures on each.
williamdunne: Yeah I understand why it was done - not criticizing it at all
mircea_popescu: in fairness, prolly a lot more crucial here than in -otc, so some sort of decoupling was probably unavoidable.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne there was some discussion re making them communicate, but no concrete steps towards gribble becoming able to sign its stuff so far.
mircea_popescu: otherwise it could probably happen in a day.
williamdunne: Yeah not exactly a big software job. Can be done in a few hours if that
mircea_popescu: what i imagine is the case is - nano was planning to make an upgraded gribble for what, coupla years now. he's probably thinking to have it done in one piece.
mircea_popescu: speculating because well, never heard anything specific on the topic.
williamdunne: Kinda pathetic if you've been intending to do something for a couple of years and it still hasn't happened (assuming the only constraint is time)
mircea_popescu: to quote dub, "meatspace can be busy"
mircea_popescu: besides, erryone gets to set their own priorities and so on.

williamdunne: What do "jooz" have to do with it?
pete_dushenski: scapegoat par excellence ?
williamdunne: "COULD WE PLS HAVE A LOW 6MTH FIX TODAY OLD YID?"
Pierre_Rochard: well - some of the execs who designed this certainly deserve blame, some of which may coincidentally be bankers/jooz… all of them likely long retired/dead
Pierre_Rochard: but really I’d cast blame on the lemmings who use LIBOR for everything and anything
pete_dushenski: not sure how much of a coincidence it is that those in positions of influence, who needed to be leveraged by the state and 'the consumers who've come to expect', would be bankers and/or jooz
pete_dushenski: so the state leveraged those of influence, and were leveraged in turn
pete_dushenski: and both grew larger. and larger.
pete_dushenski: and the incentives inherent in large organisations became manifest until we arrived here.

assbot: Logged on 23-04-2015 16:16:55; mircea_popescu: we might well discover that actually 1mb is way too much, and all we can afford is less.
Adlai: hashrate dropping too low -> need to increase mining subsidy, either by raising btc/fiat, or increasing tx fee competition
Adlai: ben_vulpes: https://botbot.me/freenode/bitcoin-wizards/2015-04-24/?msg=37446878&page=3
assbot: IRC Logs for #bitcoin-wizards | BotBot.me [o__o] ... ( http://bit.ly/1Olrdsy )
Adlai: the nice thing about reducing blocksize is that the N largest miners could just agree to not produce larger blocks, and that would raise tx fees through market forces
Pierre_Rochard: Adlai: agreed, http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=21-01-2015#986290 ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 21-01-2015 18:35:01; gavinandresen: Pierre_Rochard: if Satoshi hadn’t slapped on a 1MB blocksize limit, would you be lobbying for a hardfork now to impose one?
Adlai: bitcoin inflation relative to fiat prices is high enough that it's a non-issue... atm
Adlai: let's see what happens in a halving or two :)
Pierre_Rochard: I think it’s an issue today if we take into account NPV calculations - if gavincoin has zero future fee revenue, that has an immediate effect on the expected return of mining over the long run. Not sure that it would move the needle on today’s asic capex
Pierre_Rochard: (having uncertainty around it alone increases the npv discount rate)
ben_vulpes is entirely out of his depth
Adlai is increasingly skeptical regarding the relevance of gavin's blocksize plans
ben_vulpes: lol well we nuked it
Adlai: let's say that i'm equally worried about gavincoin and the bitlicense
Pierre_Rochard wishes those advocating for larger block size limit realized the current limit is having _zero_ effect on adoption/price and that will continue to be the case for a while if not forever
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 94272 @ 0.00029351 = 27.6698 BTC [+]

Adlai: we must preserve bitcoin's core business model!
Pierre_Rochard: I’m pro-bitlicense, render unto caesar...
williamdunne: Pierre_Rochard: In fairness thats about the same as saying my internet speeds today aren't affecting my ability to do things, so it won't in the future.

davout: wat
williamdunne: Pierre_Rochard: 1mb blocksize is inelasticity of supply, is it not?
williamdunne: I'm not promoting Gavin's proposal, as it is definitely stupid
williamdunne: But does seem like the block-size will need to increase at some stage(s) if we're to continue growth
Pierre_Rochard: williamdunne: yes, supply inelasticity meets demand inelasticity -> high transaction fees -> high hash rate -> maximize security
danielpbarron: who is caesar?
Pierre_Rochard: NYDFS
williamdunne: Pierre_Rochard: But also makes it less appealing. Security isn't the only objective
danielpbarron: when did rome fall? at what point is caesar no longer caesar?
Adlai: davout: both gavincoin and the bitlicense are clouds on the horizon. some people sell coins for raincoats and umbrellas... though they may be wiser to stick a wet finger in the air
funkenstein_: high TX fees also compete with off chain solutions
Pierre_Rochard: williamdunne: I agree, demand destruction is part of revenue maximization, pushes the hoi polloi onto off-chain alternatives
ben_vulpes: <williamdunne> But does seem like the block-size will need to increase at some stage(s) if we're to continue growth << dude again with this growth bugaboo
Adlai: oh i know how we can turn reddit against gavincoin... the blocksize limit is good for changetip!
williamdunne: Pierre_Rochard: Would it not be preferable to be in a situation where blocks are routinely filled at low-ish fees.
ben_vulpes: fuck off and DIE
williamdunne: ben_vulpes: I know you disagree, but I personally would like to see more people/companies/whatevers using bitcoin
davout: Adlai: the bitlicense is to bitcoin what US raw milk regulations are to roquefort, not fucking worth the mention
danielpbarron strongly suspects that the greatest impediment to growth is cleaning up the code
Adlai: williamdunne: and i would like to see the people who _use_ bitcoin paying for its security, rather than the people who hold it
Pierre_Rochard would vote for “time” as the strongest impediment to growth
Adlai: "use" as in "spend"
ben_vulpes: williamdunne: the people i want using bitcoin take one look at the source and run screaming, as they should
Adlai: the security is being paid for one way or another; currently, the main way is inflation
williamdunne: Adlai: We're in agreement there, I'm not suggesting that we're ever to put ourselves in a position where blocks are huge and no-one is paying. I'm just suggesting that 1mb is no way near enough for bitcoin to be bigger than it is today
danielpbarron: that the network could still accidentally fork over a bug is the reason we aren't seeing billions and trillions invested into bitcoin
funkenstein_: i think the point is more people can use bitcoin at any block size.
funkenstein_: it's a different payment model
williamdunne: funkenstein_: Pretty much. I disagree with Gavin because it essentially makes the blocks infinitely large, but I disagree with some people here because 7tx/s doesn't even cover SWIFT payments
Adlai: danielpbarron: well, that can always be the case... we can decrease the perceived risk through simpler code, testing, and more time since the last accidental fork, but yknow, "unknown unknowns"
danielpbarron: williamdunne, you got a lotta log readin' to do
williamdunne: danielpbarron: I'm not suggesting that bitcoin replaces SWIFT just to be clear.. I just meant because it covers giga+ payments
williamdunne: Where fees are the norm
ben_vulpes: williamdunne: stop thinking swift, start thinking halawa
danielpbarron: let the former swift users figure out how to fit through the new hole
Adlai: stop thinking either, start thinking tankers full of gold
ben_vulpes: Adlai: hm?
Adlai imagines hawala also has higher throughput and lower transaction importance than the hypothetical bitcoin-in-ten-halvings

ben_vulpes: you can push single satoshis around on mpex
jurov: ben_vulpes: you stretch it too much
ben_vulpes: jurov: come again?
jurov: the hawala definition
jurov: or you came up with this new term - halawa?
ben_vulpes: i thought i was using it correctly
ben_vulpes: ah no hawala
ben_vulpes: i was always under the impression that there was no single hawala network.
ben_vulpes: how could there be? it is of necessity a meatwot thing.
funkenstein_: as i see it these channels will require private TXs, that is given directly to miners, to avoid malleability issues
ben_vulpes: (entirely aside, in a fevered moment of sleeplessness on the plane from bsas i looked into ripping out the nonstandard transaction relay blocking stuff)
jurov: traditional hawala seems to work without much technology, why sudden need to introduce nonstd or private TXs?
ben_vulpes: (subject of, davout how goes the testnet excision? my digs show less than 50 mentions throughout the whole codebase)
funkenstein_: afaik hawala doesn't come with failsafe refunds in case somebody goes awol

davout: funkenstein_: malleability is currently being soft-forked away by power rangers
ben_vulpes: davout: a change to block inclusion rules?
funkenstein_: davout, is that all ok and likely to be folded into reference impls?
davout: ben_vulpes: testnet excision is easy, making the genesis block configurable is the harder part, you also need some standalone tool to generate genesis blocks
ben_vulpes: mhm, i see it.
ben_vulpes: write a standalone wallet while yer at it :P
ben_vulpes: (i was just thanked by someone who plugged into the same outlet as me. wtf.)
ben_vulpes: (outletpair, actually, and the unused one.)
davout: funkenstein_: dunno, if i'm asked i'm all for canonical txids
davout: ben_vulpes: so my plan is to start bu something easier, probably ripping out the "accounts" braindamage to get familiar with the build and patching process
funkenstein_: if it is as simple as adding a SIGtype, that sounds fine but my understanding was there was still some subtleties on the table and gmaxwell said wait 2 years
ben_vulpes: davout: my hero!
funkenstein_: ben_vulpes, well in fairness you do have less current available now :)
