BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: b) to actually work as marketmaker << This is actually ATC's great innovation.
ben_vulpes: go on BingoBoingo
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: Well, it is the first viable alternative to testnet, because instead of an absence of value a la tetnet ATC offers at a minimum a small value. In the sense that someone is byuing ATC.
BingoBoingo: There is no promise that ATC's marketmaker will enforce any floor in price indefinitely, but the fact that the Market Marker's manager actually wants to buy metric fucktons of ATC means you can finally take crypto quarters to the arcade.
ben_vulpes: if only there were an arcade...
BingoBoingo: War of Life?
ben_vulpes: this microvalue routine of atc is pretty neat
ben_vulpes: not really an arcade in the classic sense. i'm barely old enough to remember the glory days.

ben_vulpes: one time when i was but a wee benkay a friend and i converted some dollars into nickels, for to haul to the nickel arcade. we were walking up hawthorne in portland (which back in those days the Arby's might still have been operational or it might have been shuttered but in either case it wasn't actually demolished and turned into yuppy 'condo' shoeboxen yet), when of course some of the summertime transients petition us for our quarters
ben_vulpes: the particularly scruffy one gets butthurt about hearing my nickles jingle (what - i'm a joo, it turns me on) and makes a grab at me
ben_vulpes: i dodge - shit you not i kick his ankle and then run into the parking lot, where (again, not shitting in the slightest) he chases me in circles while his friend smokes a cigarette next to my friend.
ben_vulpes: eventually the hobo tires and gives up.

Luke-Jr: I shut it down myself, without any need for attacks
ben_vulpes: how'd you do that?
Luke-Jr: the other miners were a joke, so I was pretty much 99% of the network
Luke-Jr: and I just set reasonable fee requirements that nobody bothered to pay
Luke-Jr: ie, the cost of actually processing the transaction - which was admittedly near infinite on a worthless scamcoin

ben_vulpes: altcoins are fictional, bitcoin is the sole truth
mircea_popescu: there's a difference between fiction and convention.
ben_vulpes: that's some tortured logic.

duduqa: yes...we have the ptax\commercial dollar (cheaper, used for credit card purchases) and the blue dollar, which is roughly the ptax + 6.38% international purchase tax (which you have to pay in case you use your credit or debit card)
mircea_popescu: aha.
duduqa: at the top of the bubble, price reached over USD 1,400 here
duduqa: Brazilian most popular finance website (infomoney.com.br) quotes the bitcoin price and has a dedicated bitcoin columnist - Fernando Ulrich (pretty good)

mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo yeah but irl bitcoin is still more potential than actual cunt.
BingoBoingo: True
kakobrekla: dont do hd porn, you will end up on wiki searching up all the diseases.
neuroMode: i mean gambling wise. people know they will lose at times, they just put more money right back on the table
BingoBoingo: <kakobrekla> dont do hd porn, you will end up on wiki searching up all the diseases. << Good reason to avoid whores willing to negotiate prices (in the april and may logs)
mircea_popescu: fluffypony: the ones that need to peg to another blockchain for security << this is not really all that true, in general the best use of resources should be mining the chain rather than attacking it.
neuroMode: and chalk up your losses to either not counting cards well enough or just bad luck and use the experience for helping next time
mircea_popescu: ^ this use the experience for helping next time shizzle...
BingoBoingo: neuroMode: No, I mean exactly that. There is a way to win blackjack, and that is you get moar comped drinks than you lose at the table.
neuroMode: hahaha
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo that's not winning, that's getting drunk on your own success.
neuroMode: ok, fine.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo that's not winning, that's getting drunk on your own success. << What is a greater example of winning than losing exactly the house edge over 8 hours and drinking to success on the top shelf?
BingoBoingo: At least in Black Jack
mircea_popescu: fluffypony: but not before people made payments that were 1/100000 of what they meant to pay << fucking idiots for srs. 5 zeros ? why, because 8 and 5 are mutually prime ?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo you know they overcharge for the drinks.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Well they don't overcharge the person they are comping...
mircea_popescu: but when you do your winning math
BingoBoingo: Since... they aren't charging
ben_vulpes: aren't all drinks outside the home overcharged for?
mircea_popescu: you count retail do you not.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> but when you do your winning math << I try to blackjack to the house edge.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes went out with some friends local thai restaurant, ordered champagne. pretty decent stuff. like 20 bux a bottle ?
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> you count retail do you not. I count versus package liquor store prices
mircea_popescu: went to bdsm event, bought champagne, pretty decent stuff. 30 bux a bottle.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo aok than.
BingoBoingo: Not casino bar prices
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i doubt you can have anything drinkable in the us for under 1k a bottle.
BingoBoingo: Sometimes I compare to the compromise favored hole in the wall bar prices.
mircea_popescu: haven't tested this extensively for lack of giving a shit.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu> BingoBoingo i doubt you can have anything drinkable in the us for under 1k a bottle. << I don't drink much wine, because I'm too picky for the normal local selection, but I'll get five bottles of Egri Bikaver at the supermarket in hopes I can three are palatable.

danielpbarron: BingoBoingo, at first I wanted to give it time to let others spade it out; eventually I decided I'd go for the wow factor of having a really old account that never ascended; plus I was mostly interested with the Mall, which is easier to use if you aren't focused on optimizing runs
BingoBoingo: danielpbarron: Ah, I made I guess... the mistake of doing some hardcore ascensions, but... I'm enjoying these new challenge paths

HeySteve: hmm training your memory for the card table perhaps?
BingoBoingo: HeySteve: Or life in general
HeySteve: my grandparents could recall all the cards played in a game of bridge. they'd review it afterwards, my grandfather criticizing granny's play
HeySteve: my memory's good but not nearly that good
Vexual: although, granny can't remember whose carkeys she chose
BingoBoingo: Vexual: Your grandparents still do key parties?

DreadKnight: ben_vulpes, you nickname? not fond of MMORPGs as well, even got a bit insulted you thought I was making one, lol
DreadKnight: BingoBoingo, doing a bit of coding overall, what are you up to?

BingoBoingo: Vexual: Well, WoL uses it
Vexual: yes, i haven't tried it get, i felt woozy last time i looked
BingoBoingo: I'll try to get the statement for how it was traded out on the 1st
DreadKnight: average total costs for mircea popescu investment fund, BingoBoingo ?
HeySteve: I saw WoL is influenced by the blockchain, how does that work?
BingoBoingo: DreadKnight: What do you mean by average total costs?
DreadKnight: BingoBoingo, not sure what ATC stands for otherwise
BingoBoingo: HeySteve: WoL actions happen as a result of blockchain events
Vexual: is there, like a cool workspace with an old streetfighter machine so I can remeber all my old combos while depositing?
BingoBoingo: DreadKnight: Altcoin, capitalized
DreadKnight: gotcha
BingoBoingo: Vexual: If only
HeySteve: BingoBoingo, I like that idea. want to use the blockchain myself as a kind of public dice roll
BingoBoingo: So... the peace corps is evacuating west Africa over Ebola
Vexual: whatcu mean evacuating, sucka?
Vexual: fat arse= plane?
Vexual: coz that sounds counterproductive
DreadKnight: Mr. T is in the house.
Vexual: oh
HeySteve: as long as that shit doesn't spread to south africa
DreadKnight: found it interesting that Mark Shuttleworth got rich in Africa
BingoBoingo: Vexual: I mean fleeing because they don't want Ebola since apparently white people get it nao
BingoBoingo: White Africans are everything wrong with Humanity
HeySteve: yeah shuttleworth invented some kinda certificate authority... thawt

DreadKnight: HeySteve, I knew it had something to do with hardware, but that certificate made the real money?
DreadKnight: good to know
HeySteve: I think so, yeah. not sure why Web of Trust hasn't been more widely adopted over CAs
HeySteve: guess key parties aren't cool or something
DreadKnight: :D
DreadKnight: it's too "peer to peer"
DreadKnight: CAs tend to me more iconic and profitable, meaning more marketing done as well to brainwash people
DreadKnight: CAs are older concept in the industry, better rooted
HeySteve: hmm probably but WoT goes back to early days of PGP

mircea_popescu: so basically they started with 5.7k, ended with 6.4k and got a total of 700 btc donated counted at an average of 900, so most of them early 2013.
ThickAsThieves: sounds plausible
mircea_popescu: this is quite well fitting with the history, they were only actually declared persona non grata later on.
ThickAsThieves: however, i'm skeptical all they got was 6k
ThickAsThieves: IPOs got way more than that on that timeline
mircea_popescu: why ?
ThickAsThieves: surely every ass throwin btc around threw some at TBF
mircea_popescu: ipos CLAIM more than that, because ipos don't file for taxes, typically.
ThickAsThieves: need wallet addy
ThickAsThieves: i also wonder about liquidity tricks
mircea_popescu: they posted a 77k investment income, which is probably a wrong statement,
mircea_popescu: it includes what they THINK they made daytrading,
mircea_popescu: whereas it should include that massive 4mn they got from btc
ThickAsThieves: say TBF sells 500btc at $200, but then price falls. Matonis sells 500btc for $150 and says the first set were his and second set was TBF
ThickAsThieves: just bs like that
mircea_popescu: what the fuck must this moss adams thing be thinking to publish unbalanced tax returns is beyond the mind's boggle.
ThickAsThieves: to what end though, they dont pay taxes
ThickAsThieves: so invetsment income being correcter does what
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves you know if matonis wishes to donate $50 to the foundation he doesn't have to go to all this complex trouble. or you mean it the other way around
ThickAsThieves: i mean the scammy side
ThickAsThieves: arbiter of coins and trades can shuffle to his liking
mircea_popescu: well this has been the objection since day one, vessenes is just using it as a piggybank
mircea_popescu: doubt matonis' doing much with that.
ThickAsThieves: would it be appropriate to add measures to an0?
ThickAsThieves: like must report bitcoin holding addresses
ThickAsThieves: essentially promote transparency where available
ThickAsThieves: or maybe have anNP
mircea_popescu: an0 already reports that neh ?
ThickAsThieves: for nonprofits
ThickAsThieves: all tx must be reported
ThickAsThieves: with notes
ThickAsThieves: i didnt recall an0 sharing bitcoin addy

mircea_popescu: oh you mean the addy specifically.
mircea_popescu: meh, that was on the plate, but eventually fell off. for one thing, addresses change, for the other some people are worried (sensibly or no) that it exposes them to various vulnerabilities.
ThickAsThieves: for personal wallets i def agree
ThickAsThieves: for nonprofits, much less so
ThickAsThieves: for businesses, probly has competition issues and other privacy problems
ThickAsThieves: for nonprofits, donors may not want their addy connected

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what string and what hash has produced the leading d49250d4 << anybody solved this puzzle ?
mircea_popescu: nope.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves moreover, bitcoin is supposed to be anon.
BigBitz: asciilifeform what is that from?
mircea_popescu: as a general principle supporting any deanonimization measures is uncanonical.
ThickAsThieves: it's the current knot in my brain lately, whether this phenomenon is actually the one that kills anonymity
mircea_popescu: BigBitz the earlier pic with the two girls' bits.
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves which phenomenon ?
BigBitz: didn't see the pic :(
ThickAsThieves: the aspects of bitcoin and decentralized networks that we all currently associae with anonymity
ThickAsThieves: the public ledger
mircea_popescu: !s d49250d4
assbot: 2 results for 'd49250d4' : http://search.bitcoin-assets.com/?q=d49250d4
ThickAsThieves: the development that we can track everything reliably now
mircea_popescu: i musta been asleep for that development.
BigBitz: 'realibly' is debatable.
ThickAsThieves: referring to the same la serenissima topic from before
ThickAsThieves: where you can make a network that knows permanent record of all tx, and can now add identity network
ThickAsThieves: then once you do, it gains use, then becomes requirement
ThickAsThieves: anonymity my ass! future dood yells
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves but the requirement for you to have a face in the forum does not equate to a requirement for you to have a face in the treasury
mircea_popescu: this cleavage is essential.
ThickAsThieves: i'mn concerned they are entangled or will become so
ThickAsThieves: what if everyone really did require WoT for any trust situation
mircea_popescu: what then ?
ThickAsThieves: then what's anonymity?
mircea_popescu: anonymity is generally a curse.
ThickAsThieves: also part of my question
mircea_popescu: !up ADutchGamer
ThickAsThieves: why do we want anonymity at all
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves it's important in some places. specifically, money handling.
mircea_popescu: it's not even useful in social interractions.
ThickAsThieves: maybe, maybe not
ThickAsThieves: many would argue
ThickAsThieves: i dont enjoy the baggage of my hometown and people
mircea_popescu: so get out ?
ThickAsThieves: i did
mircea_popescu: generally people try to resolve through anonimity problems that have their solution elsewhere. because it's cheap.
ThickAsThieves: just syaing some ability to be clean-slated exists
ThickAsThieves: and desire for it
rithm: ThickAsThieves I moved back to my "home town" outside of the city limits now I'm being annexed
rithm: city council next tuesday
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves not like you can't make a new key any time you want.
mircea_popescu: and speaking of scary shit, http://37.media.tumblr.com/3e98e7c55649dc7423de0eb26630625a/tumblr_mihjrzicaj1qlne6uo1_500.jpg
ThickAsThieves: right, but like i said, i'm envisioning some future where a new key is like being birn yesterday
ThickAsThieves: and you are treated as such
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves precisely what it is. and yes.
ThickAsThieves: that's what we want?
mircea_popescu: this is what anonymity already is. not a matter of what we want.
ThickAsThieves: hrm
mircea_popescu: how do you treat random 4channer./redditor/etc ?
mircea_popescu: not like he's been born yest ?
ThickAsThieves: so basically people mostly arbitrage their anonymity via lies, deception, unaccountability, ignorant bliss
mircea_popescu: something like that.
ThickAsThieves: maybe it's just being in america so long,
ThickAsThieves: but it's starting to feel surreal like that
ThickAsThieves: like everything is just a measure of fantasy
ThickAsThieves: how fake is this
mircea_popescu: well, human identity is precisely that.
ThickAsThieves: how much lying am i dealing with
ThickAsThieves: people get so mad when you poke at it
ThickAsThieves: it must be painful to be real
ThickAsThieves: fear of death maybe?
ThickAsThieves: mortality*
mircea_popescu: i think this was best discussed in relation to the perianne chick and my old class mate recently.
mircea_popescu: since the us has built this quite insane "valuation by social consensus" thing, people aim to impress others rather than do anything.
ThickAsThieves: but how is it so appealing?
ThickAsThieves: it's like junk food
ThickAsThieves: i guess
mircea_popescu: why is it so appealing. because standing in front of a bunch of people and telling them to get fucked is scary.
DreadKnight: the doge wants to play with that red ball xD

ThickAsThieves: Once again, I'm putting out there an offer to pay someone to do some light work and compiling for the Altcoin wallet.
ThickAsThieves: Also, jurov, when will CoinBr support ATC? Geez!
mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves but support it to do what with ?
ThickAsThieves: I have a dream that one day this coin will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that Altcoins are created equal and can be used to purchase MPEx stocks."
mircea_popescu: what, directly ?

ThickAsThieves: you make no sense
mircea_popescu: anyone here have a positive view of teh demmurage notion ? fluffypony ? or who's the altcoin heretique du jour ?
fluffypony: I don't like it at all
fluffypony: I don't think it fixes anything
fluffypony: I do think a minimum subsidy at around the 0.4% - 1.5% mark is a better approach
mircea_popescu: what's a minimum subsidy ?
fluffypony: minsubsidy == lowest the block reward can go to
fluffypony: so the block reward will still taper down to that minsubsidy, but you'll never have a scenario where miner fees > block reward
mircea_popescu: once it's capped might as well make it fixed. 50 btc or w/e
fluffypony: yeah that's the other approach is to give it a fixed value instead of a % of supply
ben_vulpes: doge tried this. to disastrous results.
mircea_popescu: the difference between an infinite series and a finite series is marked. the difference between that last and a constant is not.
