Libra has absolutely nothing to do with open, permissionless cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Radix, Monero, Zcash and Bitcoin..

That list would be shorter if he qualified "Immutable" in that statement.


And wtf is Radix?
I looked it up and it sounds like an interesting concept but I don't see from the outside how the network can adhere to the ruleset it states.

"It will be easy to mine and will be accessible to everyone: to mine you will not need to have more computer power than your “neighbor”, simply you will be chosen randomly and all sooner or later will be chosen. Thanks to the technology behind it you will not need any expensive tool, just a phone with the app on it."

I can already think of ways this can be gamed.

CME will open in an hour... will be interesting to see what happens; must suck to sit on a short and not being able to get out over the weekend  Tongue

Does somebody know how the price limit works? I mean halting BTC futures trading will not get BTC price changing.
Will the be forced settlements?
here Smiley i like that:
must suck to sit on a short and not being able to get out over the weekend

not sure what you mean with how "the limit works"
when futures trading opens there will be i think gap up, instant gap up
so if shorters had close limit on 10500 and gap up instantly put price to 11000, they will close with 11000 and not with 10500...at least i think so

Good question.
Can they sell if the limit is hit? This would mean that the longs are forcefully pushed out of the contract?

Could be setting up for some major carnage at the CME that's for sure. ... bulls have got it back to the AYH right before the open too so it might spark a massive surge up on the short squeeze at the open.

When CME went live with the contract in Dec. 2017 I recall an ex-CME head or regulator warning that CME had never dealt with a truly hard asset like bitcoin and it was a real risk for it to cause major failures ... which is a joke because he was admitting that gold was not a hard asset in the way it has been papered out of existence.

Edit: meant to add that there will be a battle to get it back closer to friday's close before the open to stem the bleeding.

Genuine question: can you have a short squeeze in a cash-settled market? Given that the shorter's buys aren't actually fed back in to the (edit: physical) market?

Yes because shorts will look to hedge on physical markets.  The markets are linked - they don’t operate in isolation from each other.

Do you raise cattle and slaughter them?
I once helped slaughter a cow.  In Neuquen province.  A couple of gauchos dragged a beef out of the pen, tied it to a tree, and stuck a knife in its throat.  I helped 'em skin it.  And they gave me a couple slices of raw heart to eat.  Did you know heart is good to eat raw?

Do you also mine your coins or just buy'em at the supermarket? Errr, I mean, exchange.

It doesn’t matter.  You can’t just tell the US government you are going to break every law in the book and expect them to roll over.  Not unless you control the government.  And I know the conspiratards like to claim differently, but the US government in the broad sense (State and Federal) is sufficiently decentralized that it is not really capable of being controlled by any specific individual or group of individuals in its current form

+1 WO merit.

This was really cool to read and watch. Too bad he can't crank one out in under 10 minutes to have a chance at mining the next block. Maybe if you have a team of 200 people all working on it at the same time. Totally efficient use of manual labor, and graph paper...

Pre 0.17.1

I was worrying a bit until I looked deeper into this. I’ve upgraded since then Smiley


Two relatively minor vulnerabilities will likely be disclosed sometime soon.

The first vulnerability, CVE-2017-18350, was introduced in v0.7.0 (released in
2012 September), and affects all versions released until the fix was included
in v0.15.1 (released in 2017 November). No versions prior to v0.15.1 are
expected to be fixed.

The second vulnerability, CVE-2018-20586, was introduced in v0.12.0 (released
in 2016 February), and affects all versions released until the fix was
included in v0.17.1 (released in 2018 December). As of today, this fix has
NOT been backported to older versions. When/if v0.15.3 and v0.16.4 are
released, they may also include a fix, but due to the minor severity of this
vulnerability, it does not merit a dedicated release on its own. (The git
branches are also NOT fixed at this time.)

Please be sure you have upgraded to a fixed version no later than August 1st.
