CheapBoy: I'm trying to understand if people will be able to "sell" their ethereum pledge before it is released atm.
BingoBoingo: CheapBoy: Well I doubt the ethereum people are going to make or allow a market for that since, etherium is supposed to be a market
pigeons: CheapBoy: i asked that too, was told "no". but try #etherum. actually, i heard they were emailing (!) encrypted wallets (perhaps generated with not-so-random keys via mouse movements!)
pigeons: so i suppose you could sell the wallet
pigeons: probably they won't email you the wallet for another few bfl-months, but i hae no actual clue about that
mike_c: um, selling private keys is not so practical. ask bingo and pankkake :)
pigeons: well sell it before it's cracked from its not-so-randomness
mike_c: and pinky-swear to delete your copy
BingoBoingo: mike_c: Situation has been remedied. Key in question was not sold so much as held by each of us in trust of a higher powah.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: conventional munitions alarm << you mean, ears ringing? or smelled the unmistakeable smell of trotyl? or actual electric alarm?
BingoBoingo: I was going to ask, but figured if I had to...
asciilifeform is actually quite familiar with the construction of such alarms, and their shortcomings.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo and other us-ians probably know that one shouldn't take an old set of shooting earmuffs to the airport, and why...
BingoBoingo: lol
BingoBoingo has never actually been to an aitport
BingoBoingo: *airport
asciilifeform: seriously?
asciilifeform: not once?
BingoBoingo: Havent'd had occasion to yet. Imagine my first airport experience will prolly happen in Mexico
pigeons: as a kid you didnt go run around them back when it was possible?
pigeons: or a teenager bring a girl to sit on the car and "watch the planes"
asciilifeform not exactly a pith-helmeted hero of world travel; went to an airport for the first time in ~22 yrs. to visit mircea_popescu and other phriends back in april.
BingoBoingo: Well, I've been to field's where ultralights operated
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: you mean small airplanes in general? or specifically 'ultralights' ?
pigeons: anyway, you're not missing anything now, everyone's in a hurry and scared
BingoBoingo: pigeons: As a teen there were closer places to take girls to "watch the nothing"
asciilifeform: because, if i recall, 'ultralights' (IANAL - but if i recall, defined as ~100kg and below) are actually unregulated, and can be flown anywhere in usa, by anyone
pigeons: yes that's still the case
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Specifically ultralight. Driven past airports for slightly bigger planes.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: A thing that has it's big national get together locally is "powered parachutes"
asciilifeform: paraglider?
pigeons: i want a jetpack
danielpbarron: does anyone know who the owner of the #bitcoin- group is?
asciilifeform: jetpack << as in, the one flying machine that is guaranteed to kill you if the engine cuts out?
pigeons: oh dont ruin my fun with reality
pigeons: itll be powered by ETH so it wont cut off
asciilifeform: lol
asciilifeform old enough to remember when technical magazines had ads in the back for 'build your own helicopter from tractor!'
pigeons: ETH is not a security and this is not an attempt to solicit investments from unqualified investors. its a fuel.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: We get those too, but like seriously a powered parachute http://icons.wunderground.com/data/wximagenew/n/nlwi/9.jpg
BingoBoingo: pigeons: Only a fuel if you like engine knock
BingoBoingo remembers at boyscout camp one of the older scouts spaying ether into the campfire to discourage us young'uns from spraying pug spray into the fire
BingoBoingo: *bug spray
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: ether << standard equipment in boyscout kit?
pigeons: yeah i remember the scout leaders telling us emphatically not to smoke the local funky weed
asciilifeform: can one even buy ether in usa outside of a terrorist catalogue?
pigeons: so of course it had the opposite effect
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well I was ~6th grade at the time and age ranged up to High School degenerates in the group
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Available in "engine starting fluid"
pigeons: or if you have a buddy who works in a chemistry lab
pigeons: they make real good friends
BingoBoingo: The sprayer's family had ~8 or 9 muscle cars in various states on non-function in their yard at the time.
BingoBoingo: pigeons: If you have a friend in the chemistry lab there are more interesting things to consider than ether
BingoBoingo: Though some amount of ether may be useful as a solvent... TO acieve other things...
pigeons: yes of course. by might as well get the ether there too
BingoBoingo: And of course the net result of the spritz of ether into the campfire was panic for ~1.5 miles in any direction

Rassah: Hah! Bitcoin Pete's article: "Vitalik Buterin, he of "autism is the same as intelligence" fame"
Rassah: I wonder if Bitcoin Pete has met an inteligent person in his life
Rassah: iRL
BingoBoingo: Well, pete's a jew and there are a lot of smart members of the tribe
Rassah: My tribe consists of Tsiolkovsky and Tozoni, so I've been surrounded by extremely intimidating levels of inteligence...
Rassah: There aren't a lot of smart people in bitcoinland... I have a feeling Bitcoin Pete isn't one either, but is regurgitating things other smart people are saying in his blogs. A beneficial service I guess
TheNewDeal: lol
TheNewDeal: he bought a nice bitcoin bet from me
BingoBoingo: Well, if pete isn't smart then he's been incredibly lucky.
Rassah: That statement of his tells me he either has never met Vitalik in person, or doesn't know what an inteligent person is like
Rassah: TheNewDeal: Bitcoin bet?
TheNewDeal: he sent me .1 btc, I sold him a position in the bastille day bet
Rassah: p.s. I'm not saying their etherium deal is a good one. I don't think investing in ether can in any way give a better return than investing in bitcoin... I don't think vitalik is much of a finance guy, either, so I'm not sure if this "ipo" ca be blamed on him
BingoBoingo: Well, if he isn't much of a finance guy... Shouldn't he be outsourcing the expertise?
Rassah: I thought he was? Etherium is run by a large group of people, including finance guys
Rassah: I think...
BingoBoingo: I dunno much other than the picked the worst name for their tokens...
BingoBoingo: Ether is just going to feed the flames about Rapey cryptocoiners
Rassah: rapey?
BingoBoingo: Prolly worse than Doge'y style did...
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 30900 @ 0.00079478 = 24.5587 BTC [+] {2}
Rassah: Eh, Etherium at least has an application. Doge was just a self-aware joke
Rassah: Also, as is most important in any crptocurrency (even moreso than its "features") Etherium has a team of good developers with a specific goals, who want to work to develop it no matter the price. Doge (and arguably most others, possibly incluing Litecoin) does not.
BingoBoingo: Pascal had an application... Busses have an application... Pretty sure Doge had an application even if it wasn't a pretty one.
decimation: hammers & tulips have an application - neither are good canidates for money
BingoBoingo: decimation: I <3 tack hammers
Rassah: My rule #1 for investing is invest in the team, not the idea. Awesome idea with morons behind it will go nowhere. For Altcoins, an awesome idea with a single developer behind it will crash and busn as soon as that developer gets bored and goes to do something else
Rassah: *busn = burn
Rassah: decimation: why do you think Etherium is a candidate for money???
BingoBoingo: Nah, you just need to pick altcoins with better jokes like Altcoin...
decimation: umm, people are trading money for it, with the expectation of spending on stuff in the future?
BingoBoingo: My current beef with Etherium is that despite all of their protests they are selling equity in a something.
Rassah: decimation: Airline companies are spending money on jet fluel futures, with expectation of using it in the future. Doesn't mean jet fuel is money
BingoBoingo: Jet fuel actually makes great money.
Rassah: BingoBoingo: Protests? When I alked to them, they wanted to sell equity in it, but couldn't due to regulatory crap
BingoBoingo: Rassah: But what do the do? They de facto sell equity.
Rassah: I'm starting to suspect the things they talk about in private do not match the spin they put out in public...
BingoBoingo: Much like BFL sold equity in the company.
Rassah: BingoBoingo: but they wanted to sell equity... (Etherium)
Rassah: and now they are... so....
BingoBoingo: This "pre-order" "pre-sale" crap constitutes a sale of equity. Period.
Rassah: yes. Like they hoped and planned to do
Rassah: at least in private...
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 30 @ 0.13006666 = 3.902 BTC [+] {2}
BingoBoingo: If you don't have anything to deliver and you sell "whatevers" the "whatevers" you bought constitute equity in the concern
BingoBoingo: Among the other things Sonny V could go back to jail for equities fraud is a leading candidate.
Rassah: In summary, they had an idea they thought was awesome, they wanted to spend a year working on this awesome idea of theirs, without having to worry about jobs or income, so they marketed their idea to bitcoiners who like dumping money into altcoins... Sounds like they weren't dumb at all about this :)
Rassah: Though not sure about the ethics of this...
decimation: the label "money" isn't relevant - jet fuel is eminently salable, whereas the salability of ethereum is extremely dubious - and that's the property I was interested in specifying with the word "money"
BingoBoingo: Well, their biggest concern should be locating themselves in friendly jurisdictions that don't extradite.
TheNewDeal: so true
Rassah: decimation: What do you think about Namecoin?
decimation: it's not bitcoin
BingoBoingo: Namecoin is jet fuel sort of great, splendid utility, but externalities neuter it as a value.
BingoBoingo: The merged mining that saved namecoin now cripples it.
TheNewDeal: why so?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 533 @ 0.00293008 = 1.5617 BTC [+] {6}
Rassah: decimation: K... Point is, regardless of what ether is ultimately worth, if they do come up with a system that's as usable as they hope it will be, you could think of ether is jet fuel needed to run it. It won't be money, and, privately, the ether guys don't seem to want etherium to be money either. Just coins you plunk into the system to keep it rnning
Rassah: BingoBoingo: I'm interested too. How so?
BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: Because what do the Big BTC pools that merge namecoin do? Almost uniformly they dump it. Now... there's enough NMC out there that a sufficiently well monetized party could stabilize the market, but doing so would be expensive and bloody
TheNewDeal: seems relatively stable as of late?
BingoBoingo: Rassah: Being a plus that can be mined on top of BTC with little opportunity cost is a handicap.
Rassah: Why do you need to stabilize Namecoin? It's not money :/
TheNewDeal: seems like a good distribution model
Rassah: If the demand for .bit domain names, addresses, and identities goes up, demand for namecoin will go up. Right now, it just says that no one realy uses .bit
BingoBoingo: ^ Rassah Without stability .bit just lacks appeal.
Rassah: BingoBoingo: My .bit domains are perfectly stable and functional
BingoBoingo: Then there's the tendency of NMC miners to reject tx's because it's just their free bonus coin with purchase of BTC mining
Rassah: I don't keep NMC as mone, stre of value, or a transaction mechanism. I keep it as "a cost to register and renew a domain name"
TheNewDeal: don't btc miners do that too?
Rassah: *stre = store
BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: Few BTC miners find mining empty blocks an economically optimal choice.
BingoBoingo: Anymore
Rassah: Look at NMC as a fluctuating cost at a domain registry, not as an alt coin.
TheNewDeal: well I didn't say empty. You said reject tx's
BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: Rejected tx's happen on a scale.
Rassah: Any of you guys ever go to conferences?
TheNewDeal: timiosara!?!
TheNewDeal: somebody just went to that bitcoin hippy festival called porcine or something
BingoBoingo: So, last friday I'm at the bar and my friends point out a dude with a Bitcoin T-shirt. Suggest I start a conversation. I point out that in the best case they are a stranger, and in the worst case they are some petty scammer I blogged about.
BingoBoingo: TheNewDeal: That was danielpbarron

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform generally such detectors are valuable to embarass.
asciilifeform: incidentally, for a few years now one can buy similar apparatus for triangulating small arms fire. you can actually see these permanently installed in certain u.s. cities.
mircea_popescu: decimation: web 2.0 is so poorly designed that this barely exists, instead of being a first class featue << muff said.
mircea_popescu: Rassah: I thought he was? Etherium is run by a large group of people, including finance guys << none of which in the wot ? catperson, puhlease.
Rassah: mircea_popescu: Most people I know are not in the wot. Sorry, but there is a whole separate "wot" out there that's not quite as... digital...
mircea_popescu: of people that will either fail or be raped or both.,
mircea_popescu: not in the wot = no good. period.
mircea_popescu: think of it as "not being in the communist party" in moscow cca 1952.
mircea_popescu: you ARE goign to siberia. on foot.
mircea_popescu: to dig ditches.
Rassah: like my great grandmother and many other relatives?
mircea_popescu: sure.
Rassah: The other "wot" is people who actually know each other in person, and can vouch for each other. It's WOT, witout a digital record
mircea_popescu: you're on the thin ice of presumption. what makes you think people on the wot don';t kn ow each other in person ?
Rassah: and it's just as reliable (see pirate@40) whereby some people can be nice and known and trusted, and turn out to be total douchebags
Rassah: There are a lot of people in wot that have never met in person
mircea_popescu: perhaps you'd be well served by reading the discussion on the topic. the wot dun work as you may imagine it do\es.
mircea_popescu: but anyway, time for me to get my toes suckled. tomorro.
Rassah: I'll go get my dick sucked instead. See ya!
dub: a number of 'trusted' fold in and out of the wot met pirate if you'll recall
fluffypony: Rassah: you are spot on, in a sense - the WoT is a digital representation of the real life business networks that are often found amongst the Freemasons, the Jews, or even among an old boy's club for a particular school
fluffypony: the difference is that it's completely all-encompasing and global in its reach
fluffypony: so its incomparable
Rassah: The people in my real life WoT are all-encompasng and global too
Rassah: Except I actually know them, who they are, what they do, what kind of a person they are, etc much more than a nick on an IRC chat
Rassah: Mainly because taking to someone on IRC does't give you nearly as much information as talking to them IRL, over beers, while watching their nonverbal cues and cmmunication

ThickAsThieves: <+Rassah> In summary, they had an idea they thought was awesome, they wanted to spend a year working on this awesome idea of theirs, without having to worry about jobs or income, so they marketed their idea to bitcoiners who like dumping money into altcoins...

Who else would finance bitcoins < 5% APR (0% if you get a good deal)? < as i was saying, if you are in position where you need to borrow to gamble/invest in btc, you should not do it.
Pierre_Rochard: kakobrekla: so everyone should pay off their mortgage / student loans / credit cards / car loans before buying bitcoins? Seems a little extreme and just poor balance sheet management imho
kakobrekla: put in what you can not what you cant.
nubbins` groans
nubbins`: paying off debts before putting money into high-risk investment: "a little extreme"
xmj: paying off debt is always the best option.
xmj: if you have them.
nubbins`: pierre rochard buying up bitcoins w/ mortgage, car loan, student loans hanging over head
nubbins` groans louder
xmj: one exception is if you can do arbitrage gains -- loan against something and lend against someone with equivalent risk and still gain money.
xmj chuckles.
nubbins`: i suppose at the very least, bankruptcy would absolve you of your car loan and mortgage
nubbins`: (and your car and house)
mike_c: of course, you need credit default swaps for that arbitrage. and insurance on your credit default swap counterparty.
xmj: no why would you?
xmj: you don't need cds if they're of equivalent risk.
mike_c: "with equivalent risk"
xmj: that's speculation.
xmj: not arbitrage.
xmj: if they're of equivalent risk and differently priced that's due to market frictions.
mike_c: mhm. explain this magical scenario where you avoid counterparty risk.
xmj: you don't want to avoid it
xmj: you're a counterparty risk to the bank and someone else is a counterparty risk to you
xmj: the risks are equivalent
bitcoinpete: "Mr. Schneiderman, the state’s top law enforcer, contended that Barclays favored high-frequency traders over other investors in its dark pool, known as Barclays LX. He contended Barclays falsified marketing materials, inaccurately portraying the concentration of high-frequency traders in the market, and he said the bank misrepresented a service that purported to protect investors from predatory trading behavior."
mike_c: the risks aren't equivalent to *you*.

HeySteve: http://www.ancientbeast.com/ is the link but it's quite far from finished
assbot: AncientBeast - Turn Based Strategy Game
mircea_popescu: well there have been like 500 remakes, i recall playing a pretty good one back in 2007ish.
mircea_popescu: but still, great idea. who's he ? why's he not here ?
HeySteve: I will ask him to join
mircea_popescu: please do. homm2/3 were like... the best games ever made.
mircea_popescu: i still play em ffs.

DreadKnight: bacon, ty fellow romanian
mircea_popescu: o hi there. so what's this game thing ?
HeySteve: hey DreadKnight
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, open source game I'm doing, will eventually allow people to battle for bitcoin, a mix of Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and trading card games, lots of units, each with unique abilities
mircea_popescu: this is splendid. do you want to release under s.mg ?
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, sorry, what's s.mg? not familiar with bitcoin-assets atm

mircea_popescu: dub in what sense higher ?
nagzter: I read the topics ;)
dub: less crack more utility
mircea_popescu: cool.
HeySteve: EA are quite hated, what they did to Dungeon Keeper was terrible
mircea_popescu: dub they're supposed to be games not utilities man.
mircea_popescu: HeySteve i did say BITCOIN ea didn't i.
mircea_popescu: like you know, bitcoin is the bitcoin dollar. doesn't mean anyone's printing it.
mircea_popescu: just the good parts.
mircea_popescu: HeySteve you don't mean dk2 do you ?
HeySteve: nope mircea_popescu, they released a DK mobile game
mircea_popescu: oh. that i never saw.
HeySteve: where to mine a block, you basically had to pay or wait a few hours / days
mircea_popescu: ew
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight anyway, get your gpg registered in the wot as a first step. we'll work something out.
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, website doesn't provide any info about what this is exactly; I did one or more transactions on bitcoin-otc thingy a while ago if that helps

DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, Alright :-) making free open source game project, turn based strategy game playable from the browser; it's kinda like the reverse of Super Smash Bros Brawl, as it features a lot of original characters that will be featured in a lot of other games; the project is inspired by Heroes of Might and Magic 3's combat system, but improved, combined with Trading Card Games; it's fun, easy to get into, but it's hard to maste
DreadKnight: r, one of those ever green games basically; it leaves nothing up to chance and randomness, yet no two games will be the same; it can be played 1vs1 or 2vs2 on pretty much any device with pretty much any input method; so want to make "the chess of the future", a way for people to battle for fun or digital currency, very accessible, playable even without account or paying anything; I'm a bit stuck on the coding part atm, the current
DreadKnight: prototype was funded thanks to a few bitcoins I sold at a decent enough time so that I could afford paying a part time coder for a few months, but now I'm broke and I'm not a very good coder; so I could use some support to get things going
mircea_popescu: it leaves nothing up to chance and randomnes << this is a problem.
DreadKnight: in chess you don't have randomness; the random part is that unlike chess, you pick your units (tools) as you go by, so from hundreds of units, you'll only put like 5 or so into play in a match
DreadKnight: so you'll always want to counter your enemy units with ones that you think are best for the job
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight if there's no randomness involved people won't be likely to play for btc.
mircea_popescu: there's a reason poker championships give out multi milion prizes
mircea_popescu: while chess championships give away 500 bux
DreadKnight: in chess you get basically an infinite of possibilities, no two games are the same; and Ancient Beast is way more complex than chess, but looks less boring
mircea_popescu: but the results are deterministic.
DreadKnight: I'm not looking to make yet another poker or dice game, there are plenty of btc online casinos
mircea_popescu: poker is not dice. stick to my example no ?
BingoBoingo: Yeah a game without randomness leads to high level play being dominated by dickstabbers, people who instead of playing in an enjoyable way will pull out their dick knives and stab their dick for an 0.01% advantage.
DreadKnight: I'm making something that's all about skill, not luck
kakobrekla: no random? get ready for botraep.
mircea_popescu: well that's nice, i guess.
DreadKnight: even if you pick only the units with best stats, they can be countered, so there's no point in exploiting the game; your opponent will most likely be able to make the same units, so no point in that

mircea_popescu: this log is fucking epic. guy that's got himself blacklisted by derping at me can't spell funding and is looking for $500.
DreadKnight: a lot of people play moba (dota/dota2/league of legends/heroes of newerth/etc), played moba for about years and pretty much avoided all the issues that type of game has when it comes to Ancient Beast itself
mircea_popescu: the sad irony of all this being that we've been actually looking for a competent sysadmin to run stuff for years.
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight looky here : in business, one's always selling something. games are business. as such, they can either sell content or risk.
mircea_popescu: to make money selling content you need huge economies of scale, because content is so expensive to make.
mircea_popescu: this is why wow was a gold mine and rift spent 10mn for ~3mn in returns
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, even if it's free open source, there are business strategies to it
mircea_popescu: rift is a very nice game, too, but that dun matter.
mircea_popescu: so now, you'll have to sell risk whether you want to or not. learn to live with it.
DreadKnight: I agree, that's planned
mircea_popescu: you just said it wasn't above
DreadKnight: I talked about the vanilla game
DreadKnight: which everybody has access to, but which won't be have a ladder / prized / money involved at all
DreadKnight: prizes*

mircea_popescu: private keys have nothing to do with the public keys they're paired with ?
Luke-Jr: addresses aren't public keys
mircea_popescu: in what sense.
mircea_popescu: can i calculate the bitcoin address that'd correspond to any arbitrary private address i choose ?
Luke-Jr: *version 1 addresses* are *implemented* using ECDSA keypairs inside wallets; but that's a technical detail, and there is a separate page for technical details
Luke-Jr: the Address page is intended to be for end-users
mircea_popescu: eh spare me the derpage. you and the rest of the usg plants are trying to push forward a certain political aggenda.
Luke-Jr: USG?

Luke-Jr wonders wtf he is being accused of now
mircea_popescu: you're not being accused. you've just been convicted. that's all.
DreadKnight: there will be a mode for subscribers that will have a monthly ladder, top players receiving prizes; each match and victory will be logged; in this mode, your units will die and you'll have to purchase card packs with random units inside, so you won't have access to every single unit in the game unless you pay, also each victory will take a toll, as you'll have casualties most likely; you'll also be able to feed your units to impro
DreadKnight: ve certain stats for limited amounts of time, food will be rather cheap, but it can make the difference between life and death, victory and loss; besides, there will be tournaments, playing for digital currency (where a % will be taken as fee); each month the ladder will start fresh, winners from previous month being added to a hall of fame; there will also be merchandise in the shop (tshirts, miniatures, plushies, and so on), mos
DreadKnight: t of the Ancient Beast units will become popular thanks to their license / attribution and usage, so it's all like a virus, to spread as much as possible
mircea_popescu: DreadKnight ok, now you're talking
mircea_popescu: so what's your role in all this ? you draw the artwork ? you code the game ?
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [PETA] 798 @ 0.00280034 = 2.2347 BTC [-] {8}
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, I'm a jack of all trades, designed the project, I manage the thing, make abilities, made the website, look for contributors, code, sketch, test it with fans, whatever it needs to be done; I'm working with quite a bit of people, constantly looking for fresh blood, that's the beauty of being open source
mircea_popescu: so like a pm basically, mostly covering for game design
DreadKnight: I'm proficient with organic low poly modeling though, but that will be noticeable a bit later, when animations will get in the game, sample www.AncientBeast.com/viewer
DreadKnight: getting weekly emails from people to allow them to use artwork / assets in their games and I'm pretty much underground atm
mircea_popescu: ok, so what do you need from your publisher ?
DreadKnight: I don't really need a publisher, need a bit of funding / sponsorship to speed things up and get some help with coding
mircea_popescu: that seems self-contradictory.
DreadKnight: indie game devs don't usually go for publishers; they rather make crowd funding campaigns to avoid strings attached
DreadKnight: will get to that as well soon
asciilifeform was at bazaar, buying food, missed all the good derp

DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, back in the day the only method were printing cd's and selling them in shops, so yeah, publisher was needed; now it's internet era, digital downloads, websites, app stores
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes. this is the point of flesh, to make thoughts painful.

DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, there are several ways of spreading a webgame as well, "web publishers" like facebook, fgl.com, gamejolt.com and many more - the game is easy to embed anywhere actually
mircea_popescu: i suppose i should say "sponsor" in your terminology.

DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, so the assets part is kinda like in stock market, not "art assets"?
mircea_popescu: not kinda. this is the core of bitcoin.
DreadKnight: just making sure, was really confused at first, because we were talking art assets in the project channel
mircea_popescu: ah
DreadKnight: well, current prototype so far was funded with bitcoins, hopefully it will continue that way
mircea_popescu: funded, how ? like donations ?
DreadKnight: yeah, donations, it wasn't worth much but I held on to those coins and sold when it started to get fatty
DreadKnight: I use every single dollar efficiently and know to bargain
mircea_popescu: mkay. well, can you turn all this into a business plan ?
DreadKnight: there was no point to it if there was no business plan
DreadKnight: as in, I can't spend tremendous amounts of time working on it along with other people if it wouldn't sustain itself, not to mention me eventually

mircea_popescu: DreadKnight ok, let me put it this way : so far you're making it impossible to be helped. now, lots of people circle this chan in the hopes of getting some support, you're way ahead of them through a combination of good luck and good luck.
mircea_popescu: so wanna use it or not ?
DreadKnight: mircea_popescu, I guess you have some terms, the poker / randomness stuff?
mircea_popescu: i have some hard in-principle things that can disqualify a proposition, but they're pretty sparse.
mircea_popescu: field is new, so we don't know a whole lot about what fundamentally doesn't work just yet.
mircea_popescu: but yes, a deterministic web game for btc is a non starter.
mircea_popescu: this isn't the case here tho, from what i gather.
DreadKnight: it can easily be fixed, have lots of game modes in mind; basically you can just assign random limited unit pools to each player
DreadKnight: if you really want to have the random element in that is
mircea_popescu: the "buy random pakcs ofo cards" thing is enough.
mircea_popescu: it really doesn't take much.
DreadKnight: initially wanted to allow buying individual units, but did a bit game design research and seems this is more fun and profitable and balanced, people won't buy only over powered units and some want to collect them all, so they might have to buy and buy until they're satisfied or out of funds
ThickAsThieves: make sure you let me buy custom hats too
DreadKnight: eventually there will be custom skins and such; seems a lot of people care about vanity items in dota2 rather than carry about increasing their gameplay skills
HeySteve: people love their in-game bling / customisation stuff
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19263 @ 0.00081487 = 15.6968 BTC [-]
DreadKnight: will definitely want the main character fully customizable
ThickAsThieves: HeySteve i thought it was retarded at first, turns out its way less retarded than raiding for 80 hours to make your hero look dope
HeySteve: just like real life, most people think appearance > substance
HeySteve: ThickAsThieves I guess so yeah, but I don't like the pay to win kind of thing at all
DreadKnight: was checking reviews for a tablet a few months ago and the tablet was pink, most reviews were like "and it's awesome that it's pink, my daughter will love it", mom also got a pink phone *sigh*
ThickAsThieves: right, dota 2 is doing it all right
HeySteve: but for cosmetic stuff, it works well
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves this is the benefit of aging. you start to realise your time is worth more than money.
ThickAsThieves: pump out new characters, new costumes for the old ones, and never update the actual game much
ThickAsThieves: even there they still work at it
DreadKnight: HeySteve, I agree; I'm keeping pay to win totally away from free to play; hated that I played Ancient Summoner (now called Rise of Mythos) and I was pawning most players, but everytime I was fighting a noob that put a few bucks in the game, I was getting humiliated, I eventually quit playing because of that
ThickAsThieves: dota is just missing a hangout area
DreadKnight: ThickAsThieves, it has chat rooms, you can make new ones hmm
DreadKnight: it pretty much has IRC embedded inside
ThickAsThieves: i didnt know
ThickAsThieves: never looked i guess
ThickAsThieves: seems it should be in one of the main pages
DreadKnight: anyway, Ancient Beast has lots of advantages over moba (dota2)
DreadKnight: ThickAsThieves, the chat is right side in the main menu
DreadKnight: every country has a few rooms, lots of trading or random channels
DreadKnight: a lot of item trading spam or swearing / flaming :D
DreadKnight: I'm really starting to hate having to team up with random people in online multiplayer games, nothing good comes out of it usually
ThickAsThieves: it is the worst part of dota
ThickAsThieves: getting fuknuts on your team
cazalla: lol is the same
DreadKnight: one feeds, another one gets support and doesnt buy a ward / curier, one is afk, one disconnects, one thinks he's carry with the support, one has tank but he's always last in team fight, another one has initiator but he doesn't initiate crap and so on
