  1. No. Instead I will just mention that transfer of value is often accompanied by legally binding contracts. Most of the time people can't just create these contracts on their own, they need to be represented by people who are sanctioned. Fast transfer of value can facilitate abuse of fiduciary duties. Now. I know this isn't a popular position around these parts. I don't have time to read to all the outcry. Instead of responding to me and extending a completely pointless conversation you should just think about what I'm saying.
  2. Are you sure it needs instant value transfer? Sometimes it's better to wait. Sometimes there are hidden advantages to having to wait. I can think of many. I don't think the world will become a more fair place when we get instant value transfer. Probably less fair, frequently.
  3. Robert is your aunt's husband. There's even an Arthur in there somewhere. hilarious. AND twitter post by an a-type personality. *shudder*
  4. 147/416 "like ratio", says it all.
  5. did she then say: "that's nice aurther. do you want to have a real conversation with me now or do you just want to sit there and expect me to jump up and down in ecstatic delight because clearly WE ARE SO RIGHT?" honestly, who says sh** like that? i'd want to be a very very long way away from them, wherever they are. is there any background to this conversation, or do people just run around asking rhetorical questions all day long?
  6. When the #2 spot is referred to as "the throne" you know that there's something wonky about the rating system.
  7. Imagine you are a developer, and you've made something you think is really great for technical reasons. now you have to schmooze the people who have sunk money into the market and think you're going to make them rich. imagine the fake smiles on their faces when they meet you, and having to brown nose those types of people. god. SHUDDER.
  8. Yes the article certainly eluded me. I didn't even read it.
  9. Everyone seems to know when the "bull run" is coming. That is good. Yes.
  10. This is a popular sentiment but my feeling is that people are more likely to trick you into giving them money you don't realize you're leaving "on the table" by taking advantage of your own mental errors. Remember if they take you to court and lose they will pay your court costs.
  11. "fiduciary duty" look up all the laws your state has about the fiduciary duties owed by every person who gives you advice. repeatedly ask yourself if that person is ignoring any of those laws. don't do anything they tell you to do until you are sure you have adequately investigated all options. your policy should be "i get 3 days to think it over before signing anything." watch out for "we need to do this now" in all its forms. i know that sounds obvious, but i sold something (not crypto) recently and things get very very confusing when you are involved personally. it's like your brain switches modes. or trades itself for someone else's brain temporarily. and the danger is that your agent will be in a position to do much of the thinking for you, and of course knows much more than you do. also remember in the end if things go wrong it can be very difficult to find a lawyer who will want to help you go after someone in the industry the lawyer has expertise in, since they get most of their work from industry referral lists, and not from your state's bar referral program.
  12. I don't give a rat's ass about "altcoin market." i'm talkin' XRP man! everyone knows btc is way overvalued. as long as it continues to be propped up, and as long as it represents the large share of the liquidity among crypto, this side show is going nowhere.
  13. fundamentals won't drive the price of xrp until btc goes well below $5,000 and everyone realizes this game is no longer a g-damned kindergarten sandbox.
  14. Bitcoin has one practical use: laundering money. Well to do that you also need exchanges. Whatever. They don't care about energy. The electricity is on us. Energy use is driven by public policy. Too many libertarians shilling bitcoin. So to answer your question about energy use: blame the libertarians. They are everywhere.
  15. Because global politics is an enormous a massive side show. Much like bitcoin.
  16. So we can do smart contracts that run on microkernels like seL4 or Genode or Google's Zircon in whatever language they will support? Is that right?
  17. It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to heaven.
  18. Okay! Just make sure that she can in fact get custody of the box. The bank might want to see Letters Testamentary appointing her personal rep for the estate! People should at least talk to a lawyer about how probate works in their state. If you can avoid probate, all the better! If you don't have a will that appoints a trusted person to be your personal representative then the state might take over, and they might appoint your next of kin, or they might not! Ask a lawyer! Well worth the $300 or so... However there might be a way to make arrangements ahead of time with the bank for your aunt to take custody of that box in the event of your death. Because otherwise I'm pretty sure they won't let her have it without papers from the court. Major pain in the ass.
  19. How will he get those letters? What happens with the will / personal representative / probate / estate accounting ?
