g_forcewinds haven't used freenode before so pardon any etiquette mistakes here please [05:26]
mircea_popescu g_forcewinds you'll be fine. [05:26]
mircea_popescu so one thing is that i didn't dispute the legality of the sec's request, i asked them to establish it. [05:26]
g_forcewinds hmm seems an issue of semantics [05:27]
mircea_popescu there's an important difference here, i am in no position to dispute anything yet. [05:27]
mircea_popescu well actually, it's a fundamental issue of law which somehow seems lost on the journalistic profession [05:27]
mircea_popescu some guy wanted me how do i know i didn't break any laws. [05:27]
mircea_popescu that's not how laws work. i don't declare that i broke no laws, and i don't contest the authority of some random person making demands. [05:27]
mircea_popescu it works the other way around : i don't argue the negative, they make the statements that establish the positive. [05:28]
g_forcewinds so how you would characterize your email exchange with the SEC? [05:28]
mircea_popescu the sec couldn't decide if it wants to be friends or it wants to be an authority. [05:28]
mircea_popescu i indicated to them that they have to make this choice, and how to go about being friends. [05:28]
g_forcewinds indeed [05:28]
mircea_popescu i wouldn't presume to tell them how to be authoritative, i imagine they have lawyers that can sort it out. [05:29]
mircea_popescu either way, i'm not denying or arguing or anything else. someone calls you on the phone, you ask "who is this" [05:29]
g_forcewinds but you did question their authority to ask for those documents etc and asked them to show what legal basis they h ad for doing so, yes? [05:29]
mircea_popescu that "and" doesn't work. i didn't question anything, i asked them the traditional quo warranto. [05:29]
mircea_popescu show your right. [05:30]

mircea_popescu that aside : what makes you judge we're talking about "A bunch of impossible" ? [05:31]
g_forcewinds Thanks for clarifying your perspective Mircea. I'll be sure to reach out if I you end up in a story again. What's the best way to get in touch? FYI I work at night [05:31]
asciilifeform anyone recall the u.s. supreme court case which proclaimed that barter in grain is taxable? [05:31]
mircea_popescu this is by far the best way [05:31]
asciilifeform these buggers truly imagine themselves masters of the universe [05:32]
asciilifeform not merely of dollar [05:32]
asciilifeform and have, since '30s [05:32]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform there's a major difference there too. the grain case (and the oranges cove case which is used to teach kids about the sec) all discuss actual items of value. [05:32]
g_forcewinds my impossible i meant that it takes a long time for the SEC to make a determination like whether they are going to regulate. I could be wrong, but I think a public comment period is required [05:32]
asciilifeform or the u.s. proclamation of extraterritorial jurisdiction of any submarine not carrying a flag [05:32]
mircea_popescu there's a lot of difference between trading oranges and trading monopoly money. [05:32]
asciilifeform or of nuclear weapons [05:32]
asciilifeform (all in federal law, on the books, plain as daylight) [05:33]
mircea_popescu g_forcewinds well, yes, but they do have the help of the fed and gao already making similar determinations. [05:33]
g_forcewinds that doesnt speed up their own determination though [05:33]
mircea_popescu as far as i know this matter has been discussed in their comission already, and they're working towards a decision [05:33]
mircea_popescu well ok, but that'd have been a prime spot to crack the story you know ? [05:33]
mircea_popescu go hunt down the comissioners and ask them pointed q's about exactly this. [05:33]
g_forcewinds I'd love to chat further but at the moment I must run. I'm at work and have stories to write. Hope to chat again soon. [05:34]

decimation asciilifeform I had a question about Cardano. I assume that measures have been taken to prevent loss of the private key in the case of the failure of a flash chip or bits thereof? [06:12]
decimation it would be sad to have some bitrot render it unusable (or in an uncertain state) [06:13]
asciilifeform decimation: cardano is not intended to house your only, 'master' key. [06:13]
asciilifeform i believe this was described in one of mp's articles. [06:14]
asciilifeform in the event of damage, or jettison (using 'zap') one is to retrieve a secreted, more senior key (optionally kept on a cardano, or in some other fashion) and sign message to the effect of 'this newly baked cardano key is my new pubkey' [06:14]

mircea_popescu dun worry. [06:20]
Duffer1 imo asking questions is usually better than the alternative [06:21]
mircea_popescu anyway, decimation : there will be a single key storage eeprom, but the key itself is written quite redundantly on it, [06:23]
mircea_popescu and other features generally make it improbable a key will be lost. but this level of specific detail is to be you know, put up once the product actually goes for order [06:23]

decimation I was re-reading some other early Moldbug and found this one: [06:37]
decimation "My test is that a real economist is an economist who believes that any quantity of money is adequate. A quack economist is an economist who believes that increasing prosperity - or even continuing prosperity - demands a continuously increasing quantity of money." [06:38]
mircea_popescu not a bad test. [06:38]
decimation no. as usual, his post is overly wordy, but he is writing about bitcoin and he doesn't realize it [06:38]
decimation "Every nonneutral dilution can be defined as the combination of a neutral redenomination and a nonneutral redistribution. And this is why dilutionists are quacks. Dilutionists are quacks because it is impossible to imagine a way in which the systematic pilfering of wallets could somehow be essential to commerce and industry." [06:39]
mircea_popescu decimation kind-of explains why he was so butthurt when bitcoin showed up. [06:39]
decimation oh yeah I agree [06:39]
mircea_popescu sorta same problem as the average gold bug, except his is more refined. [06:39]
decimation he said as much in one if his posts [06:39]
mircea_popescu hopefully he manages to work through teh issue. [06:39]
decimation well, he should stop trying to make gay navies and start by re-writing the bitcoin client with a real spec [06:40]
mircea_popescu anyway, i can readily offer a way in which systematic pilfering is essential to commerce and industry. [06:40]

mircea_popescu by workings of thermodynamics wealth (in all its forms) concentrates with the old [06:41]
mircea_popescu whereas by workings of biology will (in all its forms) concentrates with the young. [06:42]
mircea_popescu at any time there will exist a quantity of theft, q. at any time there will also exist a minimal quantity of theft, mq, such that it is more productive for the young to work at commerce and industry to acquire wealth [06:42]
mircea_popescu than to work at shooting and looting. [06:42]
mircea_popescu if q < mq there is no commerce and industry. [06:42]
mircea_popescu if q is mq + epsilon, all is well. [06:43]
mircea_popescu the study of epsilon and of the means through which q = mq+e may be ensured is then the business of the economist. [06:44]
decimation This goes to your point about those who flatter USG make out like bandits; while those trying to make money "from the sweat of their brow" end up funding the fortunes of the flatterers [06:44]
mircea_popescu i guess it may, yeah. [06:44]

mircea_popescu yes. [15:10]
mircea_popescu people try all the time, some succeed, some don;t. [15:10]
ReutersEmily as in - some make it through your registration process and others don't? or can anyone register, and then it's just sink or swim, it's a matter of whether they can attract funds? [15:11]
mircea_popescu s.nsa is a fine example of one company that succeeded. the owner there came up with the idea of making an actually cryptographically secure gpg gizmo [15:11]
Namworld Havelock works boh as an exchange, and as a broker. It makes it easy to trade, no opening fee and large trade fees. MPEx works like an actual exchabge. Not much interface, very high security, high entry fee for a seat, low trading fees. [15:11]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily well, again just like the nyse. you have to satisfy a due dilligence process. [15:11]
mircea_popescu if you just let anyone randomly registering you end up with the pink sheets, basically. [15:12]

mircea_popescu ReutersEmily i have no idea. [15:21]
pizzaman1337 such a loaded question [15:21]
ReutersEmily I'm just trying to figure out how the SEC would argue it has jurisdiction [15:21]
mircea_popescu i don't think it would or is trying to. [15:22]
ReutersEmily like, some other sites that deal in bitcoin have tried to stay out of range of US regulators by not letting people with US IP addresses log on [15:22]
mircea_popescu best anyone can determine, the sec is merely trying to cope with the serious problems of fraud enabled by unscrupulous operators [15:22]
mircea_popescu such as glbse, btct, havelock, bitfunder et all. [15:22]

ReutersEmily how many people in your scam-outing dept and what do they do? [15:24]
pizzaman1337 how many people work for MPEx? (while we're asking questions...) [15:24]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily about a dozen, it varies. they review public communications, keep track on the status of various purported btc companies, make regular statements etc. [15:24]
mircea_popescu pizzaman1337 over a hundred by now if you count absolutely everyone. [15:25]
ReutersEmily What is the volume of trading on MPEx? [15:25]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily it varies wildly. currently in the 20-30k btc range. during one month it handled 400k btc in notional options exposure [15:25]
mircea_popescu which at the time worked out to well over half a billion. [15:25]

mircea_popescu yes [15:25]
kakobrekla kanzure Keefe Ken` kermit kill-9all knotwork Kromulus Kushedout [15:26]
ReutersEmily and how many individuals do you think suffered when those other sites blew up? [15:26]
mircea_popescu to date i would guess about 20 to 30k different individuals have lost to unscrupulous operators somewhere between half a million and two million bitcoin [15:26]
pizzaman1337 in the feb report the expenditure was 8.262335 BTC, how does that cover a hundred people? [15:27]
mircea_popescu that is easily over a billion dollars in today's market, but at the time btc was valued a lot lower [15:27]
mircea_popescu so if you want actual losses i'd guess ten to a hundred million. [15:27]
mircea_popescu pizzaman1337 well there's this dastardly ambiguity in working for mp/working for mpex. [15:27]

mircea_popescu ok. can you tell me the prime factors of 30345 ? [15:31]
pizzaman1337 (not off the top of our heads) [15:31]
mircea_popescu as you can imagine, this'd take a while. you'd have to keep trying dividing it [15:32]
mircea_popescu meanwhile, calculating 17×119×5×3 is trivial, and any kid in school should be able to do it. [15:32]

mircea_popescu if you have the 17×119×5×3 set (ie, the private key) you can do some things which someone only having the 30345 (ie, the public key) can not do. [15:33]
Apocalyptic not enough scamcoins on it ? // I guess so [15:33]
mircea_popescu so now based on this you can send me messages that only i can decrypt, and i can respond in kind. [15:33]

mircea_popescu this is how mpex works : a new user registers his public key with mpex, and registers mpex's public key for himself. [15:33]
Apocalyptic and that's an understatement [15:33]

mircea_popescu and in fact you can actually put orders in mpex right from here, by talking to the bots. [15:34]

mircea_popescu Apocalyptic somehow not surprising. [15:35]

mircea_popescu ReutersEmily the advantage of being here. i gain about 15 iq points when surrounded by these folks. [15:36]

mircea_popescu mpex ensures that he who orders a buy or a sell has enough of whatever is needed, stocks, btc [15:38]

mircea_popescu a) that while neobee collected funds (on havelock), they have yet to issue a report. this is eerily reminescent of the bitcoin foundation scam, and does not bode well [15:57]
mircea_popescu b) that while neobee spends a lot of time executing, it's so far failed to actually come up with a business plan. anyone can buy advertising, and overpay for it. [15:57]
mircea_popescu c) that havelock has a history of allowing high rent corporations to just walk away from their obligations, such as they did in the case of virtex, [15:58]
mircea_popescu resulting in a good 4k btc loss for their "investors". [15:58]
mircea_popescu among others. [15:58]

mircea_popescu well that seems just about the average stupid thing they'd say. [15:59]

mircea_popescu ReutersEmily anyway, if you're positive-constructively inclined, they probably mean "with none of the risk holding your own btc entails, such as you not having a clue and deleting the wallet" [16:02]
mircea_popescu obviously this is not what one would read, be that one reasonable or otherwise, and obviously this point is not lost on them. [16:02]

mircea_popescu everything in my garden's in bloom [16:13]
nubbins` mircea_popescu, thank fred phelps [16:13]
mircea_popescu whats he do. [16:13]
Namworld It's spring already eh? Not in Canada sadly. [16:13]
nubbins` Namworld shush, you'll jinx it. [16:13]
nubbins` i went outside yesterday without a jacket [16:13]
nubbins` it was glorious [16:13]
mircea_popescu Namworld it has been for a week. all the cherry trees are pink [16:13]
mircea_popescu this shall henceforth be known as the mp curse, too. [16:14]
mircea_popescu when i originally picked a date for the secret conference, it was mostly tied to when this particular walkway of cherries would likely be in bloom. [16:14]
mircea_popescu then they hurried up and everyone missed it. [16:14]
mircea_popescu this year ? idem. [16:14]
* Monarch03 ( has left #bitcoin-assets [16:15]
hdbuck "covering financial crimes, including insider trading, investment scams, accounting fraud and financial firm misconduct" that sounds like a hell of a work. ^^ [16:15]
nubbins` no cherry blossoms here, but there was a man looking confusedly back and forth between my house, the house next door, and the key in his hand [16:15]
nubbins` he eventually decided he didn't live on this street, and wandered off [16:15]
mircea_popescu so there ye go, naysayers. [16:15]
ozbot Twitter / FlitterOnFraud: @mircea_popescu I wonder whether ... [16:15]
ReutersEmily hdbuck it's a fun beat but i don't think it's good for my blood pressure [16:16]
LordPutin dont forget ukyo the bitfunder scam artists [16:16]
mircea_popescu you have a blood pressure ? [16:16]
nubbins` you don't?! [16:17]
mircea_popescu gotta have no blood pressure. [16:17]
mircea_popescu nope. [16:17]
* nubbins` ponders this over coffee [16:17]
mircea_popescu lmao [16:17]
ReutersEmily oh right ukyo [16:17]
ReutersEmily i am so glad you rbought that up LordPutin [16:17]
nubbins` so what, you strap yourself into a centrifuge feet-out for sleep and head-out for thinking? [16:17]
LordPutin he ripped off people like 5 million dollars [16:17]
mircea_popescu nubbins` it's complicated and has a lot to do with spiders. [16:18]
LordPutin mircea will fill you in [16:18]
ReutersEmily i also am trying to find out - why did he (Jon Montroll) go to hang out with Danny Brewster after that happened, and how did that whole thing get resolved? [16:18]
BingoBoingo And that thing might be related to the Cyprus thing, kinds [16:18]
nubbins` oh god spiders D: [16:18]
mircea_popescu gotta remember, we're on the web. and the web is for spiders. [16:18]
ReutersEmily yeah [16:18]
Namworld Ah, Ukyo still owes me a large sum. [16:18]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily well you know, people ocasionally go hang out. but [16:18]
mircea_popescu ;;seen Ukyo [16:18]
gribble Ukyo was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 11 hours, 53 minutes, and 29 seconds ago: Kinda hard to give what doesnt exist. [16:18]
mircea_popescu he was here recently, so perhaps can get back to you. [16:18]
ReutersEmily I would love to get in touch with him. [16:19]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily one of the better things you can do is get an irc client and set it up. thgat way you have your own logs, highlights, tab completes etc [16:19]
BingoBoingo [16:19]
thestringpuller did the Ukyo loan default [16:19]
ozbot #bitcoin-assets log [16:19]
Namworld He doesn't speak much at all usually. I doubt he'll talk to the press when he refuses to say anything to anyone. [16:19]
mircea_popescu (for instance i don't write out ReutersEmily every time i name you, i just type out re) [16:19]
* wolverineks ( has joined #bitcoin-assets [16:19]
thestringpuller is ThickAsThieves the only person to issue a bond and not fuck over people? [16:19]
mircea_popescu thestringpuller namworld did it. [16:19]
mircea_popescu a bunch of people did it. [16:20]
thestringpuller oh yea BTC.BOND [16:20]
LordPutin ukyo must pay for his crimes [16:20]
ReutersEmily what is an irc client [16:20]
mircea_popescu there was some unfortunate guy that took out a bond in btc and paid it out early on [16:20]
thestringpuller ReutersEmily: aren't you on an irc client right now? [16:20]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily what os do you use ? [16:20]
mircea_popescu thestringpuller she's on the webchat thing [16:20]
Namworld Software to access IRC channels. I suppose you're using the webchat? [16:20]
dexX7 webchat [16:20]
dexX7 look at the hostmask [16:21]
ReutersEmily uh...they just upgraded our computers here at work to windows whatever - 7? [16:21]
mircea_popescu a ok. [16:21]
mircea_popescu ;;google windows 7 irc client [16:21]
gribble The Top 7 Best Free IRC Clients for Windows 7 - MakeUseOf: ; Good IRC Clients? : windows - Reddit: ; XChat: Multiplatform Chat Program: [16:21]
thestringpuller lol mIRC it up [16:21]
Namworld You can log from an actual, complete client of your choice. Usually comes with logs and more features. [16:21]
mircea_popescu pick from there. [16:21]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: most of us use dedicated software to connect to irc, rather than a website like you're using [16:21]
ReutersEmily yeah i'm using the webchat right now [16:21]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: sort of like gmail vs. outlook [16:21]
* nullp (~joe@ has joined #bitcoin-assets [16:21]
thestringpuller lol outlook [16:21]
BingoBoingo Except Webchat doesn't log [16:21]
ReutersEmily cool thanks [16:21]
thestringpuller you mean gmail vs thunderbird :P [16:21]
nubbins` thestringpuller: last office i worked in used lotus notes ;D [16:21]
thestringpuller (i kid) [16:21]
mircea_popescu nubbins` nice example nubsy. it's totally like outlook. [16:21]
* thestringpuller high fives nubbins` [16:22]
thestringpuller my last office used lotus too! [16:22]
Namworld [10:19] thestringpuller namworld did it. [16:22]
ReutersEmily when you say, "log," BingoBoingo, you mean save records of every chat so you can go back and read it after? [16:22]
bounce reutersemily, mind a personal opinion question? [16:22]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily exactly. [16:22]
nubbins` thestringpuller: great for when you want your computer to freeze when opening an email [16:22]
Namworld Well technically I have yet to repay everyone, so, no, that's not yet a fact. [16:22]
thestringpuller :D [16:22]
dexX7 this channel is logged anyway: [16:22]
mircea_popescu Namworld ah ? didn't know that. how much you still have out ? [16:22]
thestringpuller someone understands my pain [16:22]
BingoBoingo ReutersEmily: Right. This channel has a log linked in the topic, but for other channels and conversations you depend on your client to keep logs for you [16:22]
ReutersEmily bounce no i don't mind [16:22]
bounce since you're covering fraud and stuff, what do you think about this stance that insider trading shouldn't be illegal? [16:23]
Namworld About 180 BTC, more or less. I would need to check. [16:23]
nubbins` that's a stance?! [16:23]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily the real reason you want a client is that you can then install otr, which is a cryptographically secure plugin allowing you to have private conversations safe from any snoops. and that is good quality safety, not the sort of crud normally peddled. [16:23]
mircea_popescu really if i had to talk to a ws whistleblower, thats what i'd use, or else pgp over email. [16:23]
dexX7 teach her [16:23]
bounce forgot who wrote the piece I remember reading, quick google tells me john carney and dylan matthews said things to that tune not too long ago [16:23]
ReutersEmily mircea_popescu I would love to do that [16:24]
mircea_popescu aite. lots to read, lots to absorb. pace yourself [16:24]
ReutersEmily bounce I think carney does think that [16:24]
nubbins` i tried to get a local CBC investigative reporter set up w/ pgp [16:24]
nubbins` it didn't really take [16:24]
LordPutin that's terrible Namworld i feelforyou [16:24]
mircea_popescu hey, bounce has good q's. [16:24]
bounce well that's clear enough. :) [16:24]
ReutersEmily ok so regarding that insider trading question [16:25]
mircea_popescu Namworld but you were about 2k at the top right ? [16:25]
Namworld 2k? No, never over 500 BTC. [16:25]
ReutersEmily i guess the people who think insider trading shouldn't be illegal argue that if you can work hard for the advantage--ie get contacts inside a company to leak you stuff or whatever, you deserve the competitive advantage? [16:25]
mircea_popescu a ok [16:25]
Namworld I think you're thinking of something else. [16:26]
ReutersEmily but the opposite view is that it makes the markets totally unfair [16:26]
ReutersEmily how could joe schmoe with an eTrade account ever compete [16:26]
BingoBoingo I rather hope the SEC decides to be friends [16:26]
nubbins` as an investor, i'd be pretty sore if an officer of the company in which i invested started telling his buddies when to sell [16:26]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily well the better opposite view is that it's really not against the people working at companies' interest to allow that "hard work" to fruit, as opposed to the interest of the actual companies. [16:26]
ReutersEmily i guess, without offering too much of an opinion since I am a journalist and not supposed to have any, i would add that the markets aren't fair anyway [16:26]
Namworld Information on the market is assymetric everywhere else, almost. I don't see why force it for securities. [16:27]
mircea_popescu Namworld this is exactly the equivalent of "why regulate psychoactives" debate. because if you can you must, and if it's legal to do amphetamines companies will start mandating their employees do it. [16:27]
bounce difference between having an opinion and letting it colour your writing, which could well be a challenge to separate. [16:28]
mircea_popescu unless you want to live in a world of socialised dope care, it'll have to stay illegal. [16:28]
ReutersEmily mircea_popescu you're right it also does affect the stability of a company's stock price theoretically when you have insider activity [16:28]
nubbins` socialised dope care [16:28]
bounce but anyway, thanks. [16:28]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily i wouldn't want to be in any board where the ceo goes "well icahn just offered me 50mn, what you guys got" [16:28]
ReutersEmily bounce have you heard of Steve Cohen? [16:29]
mircea_popescu because i'd likely just start screaming and overturning tables. [16:29]
Namworld No, it's not like saying you must mandate it, you can't mandate assymetry, it naturally occurs. [16:29]
ReutersEmily if insider trading were legal we would have an even deeper gap between have and have nots [16:30]
bounce the name popped up in a wonkblog piece I googled just now; could well be the one I read earlier. name didn't stick, but he got done for insider trading. [16:30]
dexX7 mpex as sro.. would this also imply things like the rota project? [16:30]
ReutersEmily bounce [16:30]
nubbins` ah, the rota [16:30]
ReutersEmily he sort of got done in but sort of not [16:30]
ReutersEmily yeah [16:30]
nubbins` kinda sad i missed out on that [16:31]
mircea_popescu dexX7 perhaps. though the rota project as originally designed proved unworkable. it'd have to be worked on. [16:31]
ReutersEmily anyway, Cohen said in a deposition a few years ago he thought insider trading rules were "vague" [16:31]
dexX7 yes, but i really like the idea. [16:31]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily now that they are. [16:31]
mircea_popescu dexX7 i do think there's something there myself. just, you know... apparently it also burns. [16:31]
dexX7 i read it :p [16:31]
bounce hard to see how they would not be [16:31]
ReutersEmily well they're pretty straightforward in that you have to have a tipper and a tipee, and the tipee has to know that the tipper is getting a personal benifit in exchange for giving out inside info [16:32]
ReutersEmily so actually mircea_popescu i am sure i can find this on your site too but how do you keep people from insider trading on MPEx? [16:33]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily you've followed the cases in the past few years, since it's your beat. would you say in each and every one it was your opinion that the actions as decided by either sec or courts were in fact correct ? [16:33]
mircea_popescu i don't, mostly because i can't. [16:33]
Namworld But at the same time, if you need to work hard to earn through Business, why shouldn't those who have information through working hard not trade on it? Why prevent use of such information? I would perhaps only agree to go against management insider trading in case of catastrophic scenario (undeclared losses/bankruptcy), where management would probably both have ruined the company and [16:34]
Namworld yet cleared the orderbook. [16:34]
ReutersEmily mircea_popescu regarding cases brought over the past few years....of the 79 criminal insider trading cases brought by Manhattan federal prosecutor, not one has ended in an acquittal [16:34]
Namworld But never prevent insider trading on the buying side. [16:34]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily i asked for your own call. [16:34]
thestringpuller [16:34]
mircea_popescu consider for instance the outrageous case of the swiss heinz options traders. [16:35]
nubbins` thestringpuller +1 [16:35]
ReutersEmily mircea_popescu i know. i don't know each of the cases well enough to be able to say they were "all correct" [16:35]
nubbins` "so are you gonna cash out when btc hits ?" [16:35]
Namworld But I haven't had time to think about this topic in details to form a specific or resilient opinion of the matter. [16:35]
nubbins` "i won't have to" [16:35]
ReutersEmily but of the cases i did cover closely i never saw a defendant i thought was wrongly accused. [16:35]
mircea_popescu nubbins` fuck, i could have said that. who beat me to the punch ? [16:36]
nubbins` morpheus apparently [16:36]
nubbins` see tsp's link [16:36]
mircea_popescu that is EXACTLY the point. go morpheus. [16:36]
mod6 :) [16:36]
nubbins` i was actually explaining this to my mother yesterday [16:36]
mircea_popescu i was actually explaining this to a guy from wired yesterday [16:36]
nubbins` she said ":0" [16:36]
nubbins` heh. [16:36]
nubbins` did he say :0? [16:36]
mircea_popescu "o x y z won't invest in btc" "dude, it matters not if they do it directly or tyhrough n layers abstracting it from you, it's still what's going on" [16:37]
mircea_popescu nubbins` he said "i shall ponder this over tea" [16:37]
* nubbins` spits [16:37]
nubbins` poor guy ;( [16:37]
* only_ (~only@gateway/tor-sasl/only) has joined #bitcoin-assets [16:38]
* dR3 (~dR3@ has joined #bitcoin-assets [16:38]
ReutersEmily i lost you guys on that last little bit [16:38]
ReutersEmily maybe it's because i haven't seen the matrix [16:38]
nubbins` heh. [16:38]
mod6 wat [16:38]
* only has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [16:39]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: a common question is "so will you cash out all your btc when it reaches ?" [16:39]
nullp exit [16:39]
* nullp has quit (Quit: leaving) [16:39]
nubbins` which begs the question a bit [16:39]
assbot [HAVELOCK] [B.SELL] 2 @ 0.06301302 = 0.126 BTC [+] [16:39]
Namworld Well it's pretty much what's said in the movie, edited a bit to include Bitcoin. [16:39]
nubbins` since if btc has reached a large usd value, it would be because you can actually use it as currency in a great many places [16:39]
ReutersEmily as in, people asumme you're going to get "out" of bitcoin [16:39]
ReutersEmily instead of continuing to function in it [16:39]
ReutersEmily and that is what you were trying to explain to the wired guy who had to go and drink tea and think about it afterwards? [16:39]
nubbins` for example: if 1btc=$1m, i wouldn't need to "cash out" because i could just as easily spend my btc at walmart [16:39]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily instead of everyone else having to get in, wanting or not. [16:40]
Namworld So yeah, if BTC is ever worth a fortune each, there will probably be no need to trade them for cash, they'll probably be widely accepted by then for them to have appreciated that much.. [16:40]
ReutersEmily ok i get it [16:40]
nubbins` the implication being that widespread acceptance is the only thing that will lead to sustained high value [16:40]
ReutersEmily yeah that makes sense [16:40]
mircea_popescu check out how confusing irc can be! [16:40]
nubbins` it's a bit of an "a-ha moment" [16:40]
mircea_popescu it gets worse, too. [16:40]
ReutersEmily then maybe people will just be asking if you are going to get out the trading [16:40]
ReutersEmily like the way you talk about hedge fund guys who make zillions and could retire at 40 [16:41]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: in my experience, those who day trade don't really hold long-term, and vice versa [16:41]
Namworld That would make more sense, at least for those that daytrade. [16:41]
mircea_popescu i would agree. there's about a million btc represented here, [16:41]
nubbins` for example, i don't day trade, and i don't think most others here do either [16:41]
mircea_popescu of which i doubt very much is traded on any sort of a daily basis. [16:41]
ReutersEmily have you all met in real life? [16:42]
Namworld 1 million? In here? Hmm... Perhaps. [16:42]
nubbins` i've met none of these people in real life, and don't have any plans to [16:42]
nubbins` altho i think a fair number of people in here will be hitting up the conference [16:42]
mircea_popescu nubbins` does that make you a shut in ? [16:42]
nubbins` mircea_popescu: only on irc ;D [16:43]
mircea_popescu so a shut irc [16:43]
nubbins` not much of a ring to it [16:43]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily i've met a few, but as a general rule no. [16:43]
Namworld Some have met some of the people in this channel. Although there's currently over an hundred participant and it varies a lot from day to day. [16:43]
nubbins` i met people from irc only once in my life, and it was pretty goddamn weird [16:43]
mircea_popescu ;;seen nefario [16:43]
gribble nefario was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 1 year, 25 weeks, 2 days, 18 hours, 43 minutes, and 45 seconds ago: Those assets are not listed or traded anymore [16:43]
nubbins` this was maybe 12 years ago [16:43]
Namworld I haven't met anyone in this channel in person. At least not knowingly. But I haven't attended any Bitcoin related event to start with. [16:43]
mircea_popescu now that guy, who was running glbse, met a bunch of these folks irl. [16:43]
nubbins` well ya know. successful scammers shake hands [16:44]
nubbins` what a word for hands that starts with S? [16:44]
* khersonus has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer) [16:44]
* radan (4ca5e01c@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #bitcoin-assets [16:44]
mircea_popescu i like gribble's precision at any rate. it was x y z and 45 seconds ago. [16:45]
Namworld Nefario returned most BTC, decided to screw it for the remainder and disappear. [16:45]
ReutersEmily so...Reuters is just getting into the coverage of you guys have buring questions you'd like to see answered in a mainstream press article? [16:45]
radan what is the future of bitcoin [16:45]
nubbins` heh. [16:45]
radan is bitcoin even real [16:45]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily if you manage to idle here you'll get the scoops as they happen. [16:45]
nubbins` ReutersEmily ^ [16:45]
Namworld I think that's been covered too much, radan. [16:45]
radan how many of these dang bitcoins are there anyway [16:45]
mircea_popescu pretty much all the major stories broke here, often days early [16:45]
ThickerThanThiev so much log to catch up on... [16:46]
nubbins` is the morning newspaper for happenings in this space [16:46]
mircea_popescu ThickerThanThiev o hey, neobee is in there. [16:46]
nubbins` lots of cruft, but diamonds hidden in the rough [16:46]
chetty I'd love to see the press stick a knife in the "bitcoin is a ponzi" meme [16:46]
Namworld Well true, events are usually known in Bitcoin IRC channels days before they make the news outlets. [16:46]
mircea_popescu qualifications for journalism these days. "must be young and like to read" [16:46]
BingoBoingo ThickerThanThiev: [16:47]
Namworld News people don't seem to hang on IRC too much, although who knows, maybe some of those silent people are from some news outlets. [16:47]
nubbins` Namworld you'd hope so [16:47]
mircea_popescu chetty that's a cute one. i recently saw a reference to the beanie babies. conveniently failing to mention that this thing's been going for five years, and dropped precipitously three times at least [16:47]
dexX7 Namworld: too much noise usually [16:47]
ReutersEmily well one thing we have a hard time with is how to verify stuff that is said or posted on these forums [16:48]
Namworld Yes, that and they don't have much time to allocate to Bitcoin either. [16:48]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily give an example. [16:48]
only_ ReutersEmily: something like "will MP get away with running an unregulated stock exchange on the interwebz?" that would be nice. [16:48]
radan dr. popescu, what do you think of coinbase [16:48]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: the best you can do re: verification is to verify who's saying things. [16:48]
* only_ is now known as only [16:48]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: this channel -- and a few others -- have identification features that are useful to this end [16:48]
mircea_popescu radan i never used them. people ocasionally call scam but it doesn't usually seem to be the case. [16:48]
ReutersEmily well like some of the Mt Gox stuff that came out - that leaked crisis plan - and then the back-office stuff [16:48]
radan I have a few btc with them, and I'm not sure whether it's secure [16:48]
ThickerThanThiev [23:52] ThickAsThieves you drew that shit ?! /// Not quite, I modified what Pink Eye created into that version. Maybe one day I'll put up my own portfolio again... [16:49]
mircea_popescu unless the price moves sharply against them they'll prolly be ok. [16:49]
Namworld nubbins', to the press, that's not going to be enough unless it's firsthand from the business' owner if it's about a Bitcoin business. [16:49]
mircea_popescu you're always best advised to keep your own wallets. [16:49]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: regarding that leaked crisis plan, did you see the actual PDF? with the "redactions" on the financials page? [16:49]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily that stuff was always regarded as dubious [16:49]
mircea_popescu but people accepted it as an "well... gotta talk of something" [16:49]
ReutersEmily i don't remember off teh top of my head what format that was in because it was my colleagues in Japan who took a close look at that [16:49]
nubbins` ReutersEmily: you might be interested to know that the guy who "leaked" the document -- selkis, i think -- actually did the redactions himself [16:50]
Namworld True, hard to verify when you don't have your own balance to verify against the leaked info (re hacked accoutns details). [16:50]
Namworld Or leaked crisis plan. [16:50]
nubbins` which led me to believe that he sort of made the whole document up, and it got traction, so gox figured "now's as good a time as any" [16:50]
hdbuck did Magicaltux hang out in here? [16:50]
mircea_popescu nubbins` this is definitely a possibility. [16:50]
mircea_popescu the other being that he's ver's sock and just you know... came up with something. [16:51]
nubbins` mircea_popescu: i can't think of any other reason for a document leaker to modify the documents he's leaking. [16:51]
nubbins` ah, sure [16:51]
mircea_popescu well the guy is kinda attention-seeking. [16:51]
nubbins` no kidding. [16:51]
ReutersEmily roger? [16:51]
mircea_popescu so you know, who knows what goes on in the narcissist head. [16:51]
mircea_popescu ReutersEmily yes. [16:51]
nubbins` roger sounds right [16:51]
Namworld Well at least hanging in here could at least provide info about where to look for verifying soon to be news before it happens. [16:52]
mircea_popescu anyway ReutersEmily the verification of such things is a fuzzy affair at best. you end up weighting things, who said what who they work with who trusts them and why etc. [16:52]
nubbins` [16:52]

ReutersEmily what do you think of the Wall Street contingent in bitcoin, like SecondMarket? [16:54]

asciilifeform nubbins`: the pasted text was from eduard limonov's book, 'disciplinary sanitarium' [20:52]
mircea_popescu seeing how anyone can decline their decline [20:52]
Namworld Yes, exactly. [20:52]
ThickAsThieves probly shoulda linked to trilema private convesation article... [20:52]
radan the janissaries parents were often times killed by the janissaries themself [20:52]

radan ienicerii [20:53]
nubbins` ah, shame [20:53]
asciilifeform radan: there is a serbian song about exactly this! [20:53]
nubbins` anyway, you're always posting interesting snippets. would love to examine your bookshelf [20:53]
Namworld The reason or two being: 1. Having done everything without success 2. Not having been the legal guardian and involved at all [20:53]
BingoBoingo So @bobmcmillan seems to be under the impression we had a long DM conversation. Is he confusing me with mircea_popescu [20:53]
Namworld Other than genetic involvement. [20:53]
mircea_popescu BingoBoingo ask him neh ? [20:53]
ThickAsThieves he's confusing his private conversation with being as topical as Emily's public one [20:54]
asciilifeform nubbins`: a good chunk of my bookshelf, as your probably also, is in ascii. [20:54]
mircea_popescu there's oil in that bookshale! [20:54]
asciilifeform nubbins`: another reason to learn russian. you can read virtually any book ever printed, originally in virtually any language, for free, searchable. [20:54]
nubbins` a good chunk of mine is actually in .epub format, but through the wondrous Calibre, conversion is but a click away [20:54]
mircea_popescu nubbins`: another reason to learn russian. you can read virtually any book ever printed, originally in virtually any language, for free, searchable. <<< this. [20:54]
mircea_popescu romanian has a similar, but proprotionalyl reduced advantage. [20:55]
