..the smile will be the same...if under Japanese Bankruptcy law he gets a portion of his hoard back IN BITCOIN.....(ie property)

that would suck...

then if Craig Wright really is Satoshi (or part of a group and he is only one alive) and gets access to billions on jan 1st 2020 from a trust, as he claims...

well, sh*t I just scared myself Sad Ack!



Judging by the glacial speed Japanese courts move at it will be years after 2020 before the gox case concludes. If Craig Wright really is Satoshi he'll get a payout before Karpeles.

I don't believe Wright is Satoshi, considering the best proof he could provide was a gobbledygook-looking string of text that he "just pulled straight from a transaction on the blockchain".

Quote
The signature in Wrights post, is just pulled straight from a transaction on the blockchain. Take the base64 signature from his post:

    MEUCIQDBKn1Uly8m0UyzETObUSL4wYdBfd4ejvtoQfVcNCIK4AIgZmMsXNQWHvo6KDd2Tu6euEl13VT C3ihl6XUlhcU+fM4=

Convert to hex:

    3045022100c12a7d54972f26d14cb311339b5122f8c187417dde1e8efb6841f55c34220ae002206 6632c5cd4161efa3a2837764eee9eb84975dd54c2de2865e9752585c53e7cce

and you get the signature found in this transaction input: https://blockchain.info/tx/828ef3b079f9c23829c56fe86e85b4a69d9e06e5b54ea597eef5fb3ffef509fe





I agree...I just use Craig Wright as Satoshi to 'scare myself' in that IF he was, and IF he did get billions in BTC..he hates everyone now...and would burn BTC to the ground

by dumping IMHO on how he was treated by BTC folk and the Press.....(shudder) ...as an aside with a group of 'dubious' folk he is getting 'patents' on everything related

about 'blockchain'  ...(again, scared self) I put the odds at 1 in 20 he was part of a 'satoshi group' and is the last man standing.....(god knows BTC is weird enough, I'm

looking for a 'space alien' creation origin story)

You meant that we are about to go to a galaxy far far away [as far as the price is concerned]...or you want us to come to Japan?
Japan seems to be doing great as far as bitcoin is concerned.

I think the 'space alien' creation origin story has better odds than the wright creation origin story.

Sure, this is a speculation thread, but I don't see why you keep repeating this improbable nonsense that a person who is confirmed to be a scammer Craig Wright is going to have access to nearly 1 million bitcoins or some other proximate amount in early 2020, just because his lying ass makes such a FUD spreading proclamation.

You scare yourself with improbable pie in the sky fantasies, and then you feel some kind of need to share such nonsense with us?

BBC Radio 4 investigation being broadcast now, into Mt Gox / BTCE and the 'biggest Bitcoin theft ever'.

Fun if you can get it where you are (not sure if it's easy outside the UK).  But some interesting interviews including Karpeles.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09tdyjz

Karpeles under Japanese Bankruptcy law could make millions, even after settlement...

http://fortune.com/2017/11/11/karpeles-mt-gox-profitable-bankruptcy/

what a cluster that would be "I'm back!"




Is that an old picture of him? I thought the fat bastard had lost weight while he was in jail. Don't tell me he's already put it all back on again.


no clue..the smile will be the same...if under Japanese Bankruptcy law he gets a portion of his hoard back IN BITCOIN.....(ie property)

that would suck...

then if Craig Wright really is Satoshi (or part of a group and he is only one alive) and gets access to billions on jan 1st 2020 from a trust, as he claims...

stuff to do..besides would you have thought a few years ago the Karpeles would get his bitcoin millions back or some of it? Thru Japanese Bankruptcy Law? .. dumber things have happened in crypto than Craig Wright not being the last man standing of the 'supposed' satoshi group

I think it is very unlikely, but he is sure running up patent applications like he is Satoshi

anyway, the stuff in this thread is gone 4 pages back in like 1 hour...big whoop

feel free to put me on /ignore I won't mind...hell I will not know Smiley

interesting...I guess this will compete with DCG funds (they recently announced four more).
However, GBTC is at advantage because you could have it in Roth IRA.
The downside is that it has a premium to NAV.
Only for accred US investors anyway.

They used not to let anyone with any kind of accent onto broadcast but now its pretty open.   I can understand him so not a big deal.  It adds character :p    Its down to the audience.

I think it sounds funny, no bother Cheesy    You could object to the all the Japanese accents also.    Some languages the wrong accent changes the word meaning so that'd not work

Nope - it's just that in England people who can't pwonounce their pwominent 'r's are twaditionally forgiven as they are often from the somewhat inbwed 'upper class'

Remember "'Welease Wodewick'?

Edit:  At least it wasn"t a documentary about Ripple.

In the second century BCE, Liu An, king of Huainan, asked the scholars of his court to prepare a book that would outline everything a wise monarch should know about statecraft, philosophy, and general world knowledge

Sorry for the long post - but not easily linked online.   Some highlights might be worth posting, though:


'If a ruler rejects those who work for the public good, and employs people according to friendship and factions, then those of bizarre talent and frivolous ability will be promoted out of turn, while conscientious officials will be hindered and will not advance. In this way, the customs of the people will fall into disorder throughout the state, and accomplished officials will struggle.'

'If the ruler ignores what he should preserve and struggles with his ministers and subordinates about the conduct of affairs, then those with official posts will be preoccupied with holding on to their positions, and those charged with official duties will avoid dismissal by following the whims of the ruler. This will cause capable ministers to conceal their wisdom.'

'If the ruler is frequently exhausted by attending to lesser duties, proper conduct will deteriorate throughout the state. His knowledge by itself will be insufficient to govern, and he will lack what it takes to deal with the world.'

'When those who hold the reins of government pander to their superiors and commit errors, there will be no way to hold them accountable. When those who commit crimes are not punished, the numerous officials will lapse into turmoil and disorder, and wisdom will not be able to resolve the situation. Baseless slander and unwarranted praise will spout forth, and enlightenment will not be able to clarify the situation.'

'When the people do not even have hollowed-out caves or wattle huts in which to shelter themselves, an enlightened ruler does not enjoy high terraces and multistoried pavilions, linked chambers, and lavish rooms.'

'The ruler should consider difficulties before they arise, prepare for calamities before they occur, guard against transgressions, be careful about small matters, and not give rein to desires. He should be straight and unswerving, pure and uncorrupted, competent in both civil and military matters. He should adhere to proper deportment. In promoting and demoting, he should do what is appropriate. He should dwell in quietude and stay centered.'

'A ruler’s words should not be spoken heedlessly; his actions should not be carried out heedlessly. He should select what is good, and only then pursue a course of action.'

'What is prohibited to the people must not be practiced by the ruler himself. If a ruler uses depravity to manipulate society, he will certainly fail.'

'What preserves a state is humaneness and rightness. If a state lacks rightness, even if it is large, it will certainly perish.

In an era of decline, those above love to seize power and know no limits. Officials decrease rewards and increase punishments. The people struggle angrily, and affairs exhaust their energy without achieving anything.'

'When those above are troubled and vexed, those below are unsettled.'

'The ruler, in regard to law, is unbiased in his likes and dislikes. He does not try to embellish what is ugly or make good what is false.

If one’s ability is appropriate to the task, accomplishing it will not be difficult. When those whom the ruler employs are appropriate, the country will be orderly.'

'When the ruler is sincere and upright, honest officials will carry out their duties, and wicked men will go into hiding. When the ruler is not upright, evil men will achieve their goal, and loyal ones will hide themselves.'

'In a well-governed country, those who discuss policy must be in accordance with the law; those who carry out official matters must be regulated. Superiors evaluate actual performance; officials carry out their work efficiently. Words are not permitted to exceed reality. Actions are not permitted to overstep the law.'

'In a disordered country, those who are praised by the multitudes are richly rewarded though devoid of accomplishments. Those who stick to their duties are punished, though free of guilt. The ruler is in the dark and does not understand. Worthies do not offer proposals.'

'Officials form factions; persuasive talkers roam about; people embellish their actions. Those who are taken to be wise devote themselves to artifice and deceit; high officials usurp authority. Cliques and factions become widespread. The ruler is eager to carry out projects that are of no use, while the people look haggard and worn.'

'The ruler uses the wisdom of the world to make plans. His personal pleasure does not determine the granting of rewards. His personal anger does not determine the meting out of punishments. Thus his awesome dignity will be established, and his laws and commands will be clear and precise and not be considered harsh.'

'A country that can be said to be lost is not one without a ruler but one without laws.'

Yup.... a speech impediment is exactly what it is.  A certain level of eccentricity is tolerated in the uk (if laughed at) as long as it comes coupled with intellect.

That said, personally I do adore the BBC, on the whole.
