It's called a Patsy.

One low level person caused the 2010 market flash crash.

But all big wigs who caused the 2008 depression got off free and clear. Hell, half of them were given metals.

... it reads like he went to the SR and it blew his mind.

I'm liking all this angst again coming out of the mainstream exactly "wtf? is bitcoin", is it this? is it that?  ... they realise it is not going to die or be coopted and so they must grapple with getting a strategy together to conceptualise/deal with it. The "blockchain not bitcoin" soundbite myth dissolved on them.

Marcus, OT question. What is the algorithm you have as your sig picture?

Apparently he was putting up fake sell "walls" to drive the price down!

Who even knew that was illegal, let alone 20 years worth. Maybe thats where that forum PM subpoena is heading...

It is an equation, not an algorithm. It is the piece of a puzzle to a very old, hard problem, PM me if you want to know anymore.

Rather then actually fix the problem (say by requiring a 5 minute minimum time for placed orders) they simply make money on the traders and then when the market goes down find a scapegoat to arrest for doing what their system explicitly allowed.

I thought Stolfi had some insights. Too bad you couldn't steer his obsession to solving that.

I put something up for sale, then flake out at the last second ... how is that illegal?

Its ludicrous. Anyone who's stared at a level 2 trading screen sees HFT 100 lot orders constantly flashing in and out within milliseconds continuously baiting you .

Yes, he did. And I know, but it is likely one of these things where curious minds like to start at the beginning to be fully invested instead of coming along after someone else has done all the heavy lifting, like bitcoin. Then it's easier to just throw rocks and hope for some reflected glory.

And that the state thinks it should take a view on trading tactics between grown adults in the totemic heart of the free world.

I think it's indicative of their weakness. Would they have spent 5 years hunting someone who caused a spike up?

wow, i don't think i've ever seen such ignorance so well articulated:

http://www.americanbanker.com/video/can-bitcoins-technology-be-severed-from-the-currency-1073927-1.html

thank god the internet is here so these idiots' opinions can be recorded for posterity

so...let's take the blockchain, brush off all the lunatic anarchists, centralize it and let JP Morgan run it...oh wait isn't that what we have today and it's working out just great for everyone? why call it a blockchain then, want to use a buzzword to look cool in front of the young kids, geezer?

Ah Bitcoin, thank you for being so interesting that in order to fully understand you, one has to educate oneself ceaselessly until ones bullshit-radar makes your explode with laughter when you hear a guy like this talking Grin

It's all bullshit. But bullshit makes the flowers grow and that's beautiful.

That reminded me of 2008 when Wall Street got all pissed off at the shorts and actually succeeded in banning all shorts on financial institutions. What a crooked game they run:

A two second minimum life-span for orders on all exchanges would be the simplest and most effective action regulators could take to stabilize markets. That UK trader should get a medal for highlighting how broken the HFT-abused markets are.

sheez, why does this guy even feel qualified to comment in such detail about the technology? does he know about the code, complex systems behaviour, distributed networks? seems like he's got an unarticulated "political" problem with decentralisation (which in itself is a huge red flag since it is a apolitical technical feature) and if he has better ideas like he believes with his "centralised blockchain" he could submit them to github or pay someone to write some code that has his architectural brilliance embedded.

these guys are still in denial. the game's moved on old chaps. sometimes the clever thing to do when outgunned is stfu before looking stupid.

Personally, I think that if you publish an API and someone uses that API they should by definition not be doing anything illegal (within the context of that system).  Your API should not allow illegality.

Now let's split hairs; if a hacker pushes executable code through a bug in your API its not illegal yet.  But that executable code then runs on the server and probably does something illegal (opens a backdoor that wasn't part of the API, transfers $, etc).  Similarly, if a hacker steals your password, logs in and steals your bitcoin, his use of the system wasn't illegal but stealing your password and subsequent use of your $ sure is...

You can call me an engineer but actually I think that the perspective above is what Bitcoin tries to do and one of the reasons why it is so appealing... the above is essentially an emergent property of a zero trust protocol.

I thought the main problem was still naked short selling or orders that appear but are never completed.     They cant really enforce times on orders due to a large industry of very computerised trades, legitimate and paid by the exchanges to provide liquidity.  If they interfere with that it would reveal how low real trading volume has fallen since 2000 and cause all sorts of problems.
So they outlaw tricking computers which I think is basically what happened, I thought they'd already taken measures like the really basic one of suspending to an auction if the market moves too far too quickly.  I think its happened since a few times that a major market has stopped mid day a couple times just not recently
