  7. Hei, @vlad2vlad are you here?
  8.  
  9. [4:01]
  10. You said CSW could answer any question I ask through your voice
  11.  
  12. vlad2vlad [4:01 AM]
  13. Ask away
  14.  
  15. christophbergmann [4:01 AM]
  16. cool ... I will ask several questions in next half hour
  17.  
  18. [4:01]
  19. First ... how did it come that you have become the voice of CSW?
  20.  
  21. vlad2vlad [4:02 AM]
  22. Destiny?
  23.  
  24. [4:02]
  25. Or you want me to ask him?
  26.  
  27. [4:04]
  28. I sent him the question.  Any other ones.
  29.  
  30. christophbergmann [4:06 AM]
  31. No, yes, both ... I mean, I guess he did not just call you and said: Vlad, be my voice. Did you search him? How did you win his trust?
  32.  
  33. vlad2vlad [4:06 AM]
  34. Here's what he said:  You are a little mad, as I am and I would not say you are my voice.  And more than that, you never treated me like shit.  You never required that I prove anything to befriend me.  You are always civil.
  35.  
  36. [4:08]
  37. I was hitting him up on twitter last year and I also sent him some emails but I didn't expect anything to come of it.  I tend to try and talk to all the major industry players.
  38.  
  39. christophbergmann [4:09 AM]
  40. When did you start believe that he is Satoshiß
  41.  
  42. [4:09]
  43. ?
  44.  
  45. [4:09]
  46. thank you for taking the time, btw
  47.  
  48. vlad2vlad [4:11 AM]
  49. I personally thought he was Satoshi before it was leaked, when I saw a 2 part video from like 2015 I think.  That's what sold me on it.  Then when he came out and all that crazy stuff happened it was confusing but I figured there had to be some logical explanation for it all so, unlike most people, I gave him the benefit of the doubt.  I felt he at least deserved that.  Everyone does until there's real proof.  Media sound bytes are never proof for me.
  50.  
  51. christophbergmann [4:12 AM]
  52. Thanks
  53.  
  54. [4:12]
  55. What did he do 2010-2015?
  56.  
  57. vlad2vlad [4:20 AM]
  58. 2010-2011. I was in a shit place family wise>
  59.  
  60. I was in a court battle with the Tax office (I won this in 2012)
  61.  
  62. [4:23]
  63. In 2011 I started a co again.  I moved assets in 2011.  And I did contract code and security work.  I was teaching at CSU until 2014.  CSU runs the Police and military training.
  64.  
  65. [4:24]
  66. From 2010 to 2013 I worked for both gaming co.s and LE.  They are both the ones who cared about risk. Not that perfect security is all, but risk.
  67.  
  68. [4:25]
  69. I had too many things answering gov questions form 2014 on
  70.  
  71. [4:26]
  72. I had a farm, a ranch really.  Middle of nowhere.  No people closer than 1KM.  I could work with no disturbances.  I sold it to fund some of the companies as well as other assets.  I loved that place. My work comes first.
  73.  
  74. [4:27]
  75. Next question, @christophbergmann
  76.  
  77. christophbergmann [4:28 AM]
  78. why did he leave Bitcoin in 2010?
  79.  
  80. vlad2vlad [4:38 AM]
  81. I was in battles, one after another to keep what I was working on.
  82.

  84. https://www.comcourts.gov.au/file/Federal/P/SYG746/2010/actions
  85.  
  86. [4:40]
  87. I do not want to have people follow me.  I want people to read and think.  I want them to question and validate.  Not to take my word or for that matter, anybodies.  And worse, do not look at something in the past and make that the yardstick.
  88.  
  89. christophbergmann [4:41 AM]
  90. didn't know this source.
  91.  
  92. [4:42]
  93. Can you explain what happened? While you continued working on Bitcoin, your company went bankrupt?
  94.  
  95. vlad2vlad [4:48 AM]
  96. In 2003 I had a fight with a 5% shareholder.  My first wife sided with him as she wanted me to be home more.  I ended up in an 11 year court battle.  Settled part and got the company.  I ended up winning.  You have the final judgements.  are district court, so not on google and people only see what they can easily google.
  97.  
  98. [4:49]
  99. Here is what you can tell them all..
  100.  
  101. IF you need to do what I say as I am Satoshi and not because of the idea I am presenting, but the nature of my identity, then you are all lost!
  102.  
  103. If you cannot think for yourself, then all this was for nothing
  104.  
  105. [4:49]
  106. If you judge based on an identity alone, on a perceived authority, then you are sheeple and deserve all you get
  107.

  114. list of "8 2 9 10 11", which is the list that GNUPG started generating a year (commit e50cac1d848d332c4dbf49d5f705d3cbbf074ba1) after the date on the key.
  115.  
  116. BS utter BS.
  117.  
  118. And this was written as I write, not a paid piece, but as I do and I was the author of the Authority paper.
  119.  
  120. And it was independantly validated.
  121.  
  122. It is simple and who actually checks?  
  123.  
  124. Gmax says and it is law.
  125.  
  126. [4:52]
  127. Think. Learn that code is a tool and us humans can use tools, but it is not a panacea and can solve nothing on its own.
  128.  
  129. [4:57]
  130. There is no form of non-repudiation. This is stated again and again by those with a past in (applied)cryptography. Yet, it is a concept that does not exist.
  131.  
  132. We live in a world of people. Code is a tool, it is a means to ensure that we can control our destiny if we use it well, but it does not remove the need to check and will never remove the need to think.
  133.  
  134. christophbergmann [4:57 AM]
  135. Yeah, Greg seems obsessed with calling you a conman ...
  136.  
  137. vlad2vlad [4:57 AM]
  138. Non-Repudiation can never exist as we live in a world of law. Law is Law. Crypto is a tool that adds weight to evidence, but it is not law.
  139.  
  140. I can sign and then say my key was stolen. I can pass a key to another. This is a well established principle. In the courts, it is always possible to repudiate.
  141.  
  142. I learned this the hard way. In my case, I was given a contempt citation as I argued the fact that electronic evidence supported my assertions. I learnt that law is law in 2004 when I argued that evidence of source information can be used against you and can be falsified and that it is not possible to simply show a key as proof.
  143.  
  144. [4:58]

  146. MiniMax, err, Greg, is a douche.  <------ my words.  :)
  147.

  150.  
  151. [4:58]
  152. Bitcoin is code. It has all the faults that code has. It does not make the world an anarchist playground and with it we are not free. We are free when we are free. We are free only when we allow our minds to be free.
  153.  
  154. [4:59]
  155. We are in a tragic world. There are no fair solutions, the world is simply not fair and we can do no more than make it worse by interfering with markets and free choice.
  156.  
  157. [4:59]
  158. ‘a piratis et latronibus capta domimium non mutant’
  159.  
  160. Look it up. It is a concept of law.
  161.  
  162. christophbergmann [5:00 AM]
  163. Did you sleep in this time? You had a company, a family and developed Bitcoin.
  164.  
  165. vlad2vlad [5:01 AM]
  166. Theft of keys is a means to have access to keys, and what does it prove, only that you hold a key. Any transaction can be recovered. If you think this is not the case, deal with those with guns. Tax is forced, but try and avoid the force.  Try legally.
  167.  
  168. [5:01]
  169. I spend millions to win a case worth 1.1 million. Pyrrhic. And what was the use. It changed nothing.
  170.  
  171. [5:02]
  172. End rant...
  173.  
  174. vlad2vlad [5:08 AM]
  175. I have a company. I have a family and I am enrolled in a Masters degree right now.  When I complete this degree, I will start another PhD.  
  176.  
  177. Back then, I was also going to conferences, this I can no longer do.
  178.  
  179. I am a full fee student. I do not take money for this.  I pay my own way.  No scholarships.  My choice.
  180.  
  181. [5:08]
  182. So, why is this such an issue for so many people?  I enjoy learning and knowledge.
  183.

  189.  
  190. The following is the sane response:
  191.  
  192. "grovulent 512 days ago [-]
  193.  
  194. As others have pointed out - it's arguable that publishing any claim about the identity of SN - puts the target in considerable, potential danger.
  195. Now I can understand that there is a public interest component in knowing SN's identity. And I'd even be willing to accept (but really only for sake of argument) that this public interest overrides SN's own right to privacy and safety.
  196. But to make these accusations when you yourself admit - as the article does - that there is a substantial degree of doubt, is to put at risk the safety and privacy of a person who doesn't deserve it in the least.
  197. This is an absolutely appalling thing to do to anyone. And it should be prima-facie obvious to you as to why.
  198. While I don't condone bullying of any sort - it really is the least of what these authors deserve. I personally don't feel Kanzure is bullying - merely pointing out how appalling this behaviour is, and this absolutely needs to be pointed out."
  199.  
  200. christophbergmann [5:11 AM]
  201. are you sad that you left Bitcoin in 2010? Was it a mistake?
  202.  
  203. vlad2vlad [5:15 AM]
  204. As for gaining... I gain nothing by proving I am Satoshi.
  205. My family gains nothing. We go into moving again.
  206.  
  207. I do not get money and I DO NOT want fame
  208.  
  209. [5:17]
  210. I did not leave Bitcoin. Gavin was left to manage the code with others.  That is not leaving.
  211.  
  212. christophbergmann [5:18 AM]
  213. How would you call it then?
  214.  
  215. vlad2vlad [5:23 AM]
  216. I stopped responding to trolls.  The base protocol was and is fine.
  217.  
  218. christophbergmann [5:29 AM]
  219. what is the base protocol?
  220.  
  221. vlad2vlad [5:31 AM]
  222. With the cap removed it remains ok.
  223.  
  224. christophbergmann [5:31 AM]
  225. which version?
  226.  
  227. [5:32]
  228. I'm not so interested in Blocksize things. We had this over and over, it already bored out Bitcoin
  229.  
  230. vlad2vlad [5:36 AM]
  231. This is the answer to "what is the base protocol"?
  232.  
  233. [5:36]
  234. The means to have miners controls the network through competition. The exchange of blocks, the format, the original script and protocols.
  235.  
  236. For example:
  237.  
  238. https://github.com/trottier/original-bitcoin/blob/92ee8d9a994391d148733da77e2bbc2f4acc43cd/src/main.cpp#L2249
  239.  
  240. See the comments that they all ignore.
  241.  
  242. Prove that is not Satoshi. I do not need to sign anything and I do not need to jump their hoops, it is the code.
  243. GitHub
  244. trottier/original-bitcoin
  245. original-bitcoin - This is a historical repository of Satoshi Nakamoto's original bitcoin sourcecode
  246.  
  247.  
  248. christophbergmann [5:42 AM]
  249. I wondered how can I know that this is the original codebase ...
  250.  
  251. [5:42]
  252. Some other question
  253.  
  254. [5:42]
  255. Why did you not publish a signed message?
  256.  
  257. vlad2vlad [5:43 AM]
  258. Continued from last response:                         What we need is simple, it is competition. Not a central authority. Not a 1984 double speak committee, but open and free competition.
  259.  
  260. This means that people are allowed to build on top of the base protocol. That the miners decide (see the 08 paper). If people do not like it, they can lobby miners or better, invest in hash power.
  261.  
  262. This way, changes are made based on what the market decides. Not an authority, the market. Each tries and fails and grows based on supply to a market.
  263.  
  264. vlad2vlad [5:49 AM]
  265. Answer to your last questing about signing a message:
  266.  
  267. [5:49]
  268. URGH!
  269.  
  270. 1. Tax. I am not offering proof that is proof. If I can access or not is MY business and it stays that way.
  271.  
  272. 2. More importantly, stop looking to a bloody saviour!
  273.  
  274. Markets are the answer, free open competition.  Not Satoshi on his bloody white horse. Markets!
  275.  
  276. [5:51]
  277. Layer 2 networks will require the introduction of AML and intermediary controls. These are localised networks in the form of existing intermediaries.
  278.  
  279. They can be allowed to operate with Bitcoin competitively, but not at the expense of open exchange. This being what they fear, why use L2 if you have no need?
  280.  
  281. [5:52]
  282. Those who do not think that government can set in and control this are either naive or malicious. There is no other view. This is not a false dichotomy. These are the only options.
  283.  
  284. [5:53]
  285. In all cases, L2 will require systems that can be controlled and they will require the interaction of merchants and other parties. Networks such as lightning centralise and offer control on a platter.
  286.  
  287. christophbergmann [5:53 AM]
  288. Something else ... now you are Chief Scientis at nChain, right?
  289.  
  290. vlad2vlad [6:02 AM]
  291. Yes. I will not discuss the company though.
  292.  
  293. [6:02]
  294. The others will. I say too much and get in trouble already.
  295.  
  296. [6:03]
  297. I am not a CEO for a good reason. I am good at maths and code, I can write responses that nobody reads that are cogent and sincere, but when it comes to politics and fronting things, I just dig holes for myself
  298.  
  299. christophbergmann [6:06 AM]
  300. Ok, can you say when the software will go open source?
  301.  
  302. vlad2vlad [6:24 AM]
  303. Not answering re times for Open Source.  It is underway.
  304.  
  305. cryptonaut [6:34 AM]
  306. @vlad2vlad CSW won't use slack or something? Would be interesting to get him on here.
  307.  
  308. vlad2vlad [6:35 AM]
  309. I seriously doubt it but I'll ask him@
  310.  
  311. cryptonaut [6:36 AM]
  312. Here's a question. Is Scronty legit or is this story just some fan fiction? (long read, but seems to align closely with the CSW story) https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/5aflch/bitcoin_origins/

  325. Who's got a link for this channel?
  326.  
  327. cryptonaut [6:40 AM]
  328. if you click on your name in the top left corner there should be an option to invite people by email

  357. "I wondered how can I know that this is the original codebase ..."
  358.

  360. It is not, it is close, but it is available on the satoshi Inst as well.
  361.  
  362. cryptonaut [6:47 AM]
  363. Are you able to say how many there were on the team? 3, or was there more? Not that it matters really
  364.  
  365. csw [6:47 AM]
  366. The first released code was 0.0.9
  367.  
  368. [6:47]
  369. It crashed.
  370.  
  371. onchainscaling [6:47 AM]
  372. Why was 21 million chosen? was it arbitrary number or is there a reason for that particular number?

  381. 21 million links to global M1

  383. christophbergmann [6:48 AM]
  384. Hallo Mr. Wright!
  385.  
  386. csw [6:49 AM]
  387. There are no decimal points, 21 million is the reference for people, the no. Satoshi (and I did not call them that) are related to M1 (edited)
  388.  
  389. cryptonaut [6:50 AM]
  390. can you expand on that?
  391.  
  392. csw [6:50 AM]
  393. http://lexicon.ft.com/Term?term=m0,-m1,-m2,-m3,-m4
  394.  
  395. [6:51]
  396. If you read the 08 paper, you will note the use of fiat as a value.
  397.  
  398. [6:51]
  399. Sect, 9. Page 5
  400.  
  401. [6:51]
  402. In the use of 21 million x 10^8 parts you have a value that maps to the cent
  403.  
  404. [6:51]
  405. That is, to global M1
  406.  
  407. vlad2vlad [6:52 AM]
  408. So bitcoin is meant to displace global fiat
  409.  
  410. [6:52]
  411. ?
  412.  
  413. csw [6:52 AM]
  414. This would be 21,000,000,000,000 USD as M1.
  415.  
  416. 21,000 trillion
  417.  
  418. [6:52]
  419. The idea is global cash.
  420.  
  421. [6:52]
  422. A single world currency
  423.  
  424. [6:53]
  425. Can I assume that you have read Hayek's work on global money?
  426.  
  427. vlad2vlad [6:53 AM]
  428. You're not gonna have many friends out there.  But if you can pull it off bitcoin is gonna reach astronomical levels.
  429.  
  430. [6:53]
  431. No.  But i will.  :)
  432.  
  433. csw [6:53 AM]
  434. I have few friends.
  435.  
  436. cryptonaut [6:53 AM]
  437. section 9 is titled 'combining and splitting value" and does not mention a fiat value
  438.  
  439. csw [6:54 AM]
  440. I am not looking for them, I work best as I am and I find having a head in maths and code does not make one amiable to others.
  441.  
  442. [6:54]

  486. If you're having trouble with the inflation issue, it's easy to tweak it for
  487. transaction fees instead. It's as simple as this: let the output value from
  488. any transaction be 1 cent less than the input value. Either the client
  489. software automatically writes transactions for 1 cent more than the intended
  490. payment value, or it could come out of the payee's side. The incentive value
  491. when a node finds a proof-of-work for a block could be the total of the fees in
  492. the block.

  883.  
  884. [7:39]
  885. Understood. Eagerly await.

  1271. csw, so what I am wondering, given the general hands-off attitude you seem to possess: why do you want to get involved with Bitcoin development again through nchain? Do you distrust the market? Or do you think the market simply includes you as a market participant as well, and it therefore should reflect your actions?
  1272.  
  1273. csw [8:34 AM]
  1274. East vs West, this is a cultural comment. It does not relate to what people see, but to order and anarchy. Neither is the way. Being a Libertarian is a means to allow free trade and market solutions, but it requires institutions.

  1283. There exists nothing to relate a free market based global money to. It is as a consequence of never truly having been free. The "Gold standard" was in fact a Gold exchange standard and worse, it was a BiMetalist system (edited)
  1284.  
  1285. newliberty [8:38 AM]

  1293. Everyone seeks an authority. This is what BitCoin was created to bypass. We can all trade and we can do this as the market determines. Not as a consequence of a high priesthood, but through trial and error, failure and just sheer will to try and learn and fail again.

  1311.  
  1312. csw [8:42 AM]
  1313. Core should not tell you what to do. They need to propose and allow the market to decide. Bitcoin solves the issue of sock puppets in a manner analogous to the gambler at the roulette table.  This means we propose and allow it to compete and to see what we can have, not as a centralised system but through many groups.

  1377. @csw . Good afternoon. I'm just one small cog in the Bitcoin Unlimited team, but we've been trying to solve the blocksize issue for several years now. I was interested in what you thought about the emergent consensus solution? The idea BU implements, by giving miners the tools to signal between each other and come to a free market driven determination of the blocksize commodity, with an adjustable block cap. Thanks

  1428. For QC threats over the coming years, Shor's algo for keys and Grover's for hashing are concerns, but they will hit most every other security protocol before they are problems for Bitcoin, so should ample be time to resolve, and the failures of others to learn from.  I imagine these were design considerations?  Care to comment on this?

  1434. QC is bunk
  1435.

  1437. Grover's  algo means a large QC could solve a hash in a billion years or so... classical growth will solve this faster
  1438.  
  1439. [8:55]
  1440. As for Shor's, the rate of calculation would lead to a 110 or longer solution time when a private key has been exposed.

  1468. At a discounted rate of 1 Billion USD a key per annum, the requirement would be that a key would need to have 100 BIT stored and to have a based value of 100 million USD per BTC to make attacking Bitcoin ECDSA keys valid.
  1469.

  1471. More, the double hash means that the input to the hash needs to be of a set size. The collision problem allows for scaled solutions.

  1747. The reality is there is nothing to fear
  1748. Most importantly, bitcoin uses a double hashing algorithm. The results of this scenario is that any unused bitcoin address will not be reversible to the public key, let alone able to be attacked through a reversal of the ECDSA key pair. Algorithm such as Grover's algorithm (Grover, 1996) are touted as being able to speed up the searching through possible collisions in the reversing of hashing algorithms including SHA-256.
  1749. This algorithm is known to be at best a solution in BPP ( ), a class of decision problem that is decidable in polynomial time with an error probability bounded by 1/3 (for all inputs). The idea is that this error rate can be minimised or made to be exponentially small in 'k" using a process of iterating the algorithm 'k' times with the most frequent value returned as the result. This process ignores the noise of the quantum computer and reports an error rate based on the ideal system alone. Bennet et al. (1997) demonstrate how an ideal quantum Turning machine cannot find a solution to an NP problem in less than time  . For SHA-256, this is time  and is a far more difficult problem when the true problem, the solution of a bounded size hash to a hash puzzle is introduced. His conclusion was that “Anyone afraid of quantum hash-collision algorithms already has much more to fear from non-quantum hash-collision algorithms”.
  1750. More importantly, when Bernstein (2009,  ) analysed the known quantum algorithms he demonstrated conclusively that “all the quantum-collision algorithms in the literature are steps backwards from the non-quantum algorithm of (Oorschot, et al.  ). In other words, any attack on the hash functions of Bitcoin would be more effective using a classical computer.
  1751. Bitcoin is thus secure against (theoretical) quantum computer attacks against a key that has not been used. Once a transaction is signed and sent to the blockchain, an attacker can extract the public key. This is not a flaw in the algorithm but a standard part of the functioning of ECC and ECDSA based systems. The question is then, what is the cost to an attacker to break the ECDSA key itself?
  1752. Grover’s algorithm could be said to reduce the bit-security of such primitives by half; one might say that a 256-bit pre-quantum primitive offers only 128-bit security in a post-quantum setting. This is far too large to be broken on any QC any time in the foreseeable future. However, Bitcoin uses the Hash of a Hash. The combination of both SHA256 bit hashes of SHA256 values and the use of a 160Bit RipeMD hash of a SHA256 value for an address makes the analysis of bitcoin addresses to uncover the private key infeasible.
  1753. Attacking ECDSA with Shor
  1754. Let us for a moment assume that a working solution to the problem of creating logical qubits on a FTQC that can maintain coherence for long time periods can be achieved. We next need to note that Shor's algorithm is not simple and a Universal QC would need specialised breaks - you cannot just solve ECC in one hit as is suggested by many pundits.
  1755. The other common fallacy and assumption is that a FTQC will just factor the private key before you can spend. It is more probable that even a 1 million logical qubit FTQC system would likely take weeks or months to break 256 bit ECDSA keys.
  1756. 9:44]
  1757. On the basis of these numbers, performing a 2048-bit number Shor factorization will take on the order of 110 days and require a system size of 2 × 109 trapped ions.
  1758. Trapping 2 × 109 ions will require 23 × 23 vacuum chambers occupying an area of ca. 103.5 × 103.5 m2.

  1762. Bitcoin Mining.
  1763. As we noted from Bernstein’s (2009) results, quantum computers are slower at solving hash collision than are algorithms for the deployment on classical systems. Hence, there is no economic benefit for a miner to use Quantum Computers for the solution of hash puzzles as they would solve fewer hashes than a miner on a more traditional ASIC. This excludes the costs of the Quantum computer as well (which is significant) and does not consider the fact that qubits are slower to process than bits (Bernstein, 2009). The result is that a miner who was to deploy a Quantum computer for the mining of Bitcoin (if one was to ever exist in the first place) would be at an economic disadvantage to a miner using more traditional ASIC based systems.
  1764. Post-quantum cryptography ( ), a purported non-partisan site for the scientific dissemination of information concerning the effects of quantum computing on cryptography that is heavily used by partisan personalities including Vitalik Buterin, (co-founder of Ethereum) starts with the doom saying prophecy:
  1765. “"Imagine that it's fifteen years from now. Somebody announces that he's built a large quantum computer. RSA is dead. DSA is dead. Elliptic curves, hyperelliptic curves, class groups, whatever, dead, dead, dead. So users are going to run around screaming and say 'Oh my God, what do we do?'”
  1766. This false prophecy is clearly misleadingly designed to read as if it was a quote from Daniel Bernstein’s ( ) analysis. The removal of the line “The New York Times runs a frontpage article reporting that all of the public-key algorithms used to protect the Internet have been broken” changes the context where the author starts by stating, “A closer look reveals, however, that there is no justification for the leap from “quantum computers destroy RSA and DSA and ECDSA” to “quantum computers destroy cryptography.””
  1767. More importantly, no consideration of the costs and time in uncovering a private key has been announced. As Bernstein (2009  ) also demonstrated, the move to alternate hashing algorithms is unwarranted due to theoretical quantum computers even were they to become a reality.
  1768.  
  1769.  
  1770. So, please never listen to the FUD. Forget ideas such as Lamport Signatures. Bitcoin is as it is for a reason and the reason that these others who worry about science fiction did not create it is the reason we need to maintain it as the protocol was created.

  1811. csw, so I read the above, I see most parts of where you are coming from now and it makes sense. however, the only thing remaining is the double-hashing, which is unclear to me. what does it add in terms of security in terms of QC considerations? Grover's algo will work in sqrt(n) both for a single and a double hash and the double hashing is just a constant factor in time - no?

  2021. csw, ok thanks you cleared this up, I think. to restate to figure out whether I got this: basically, you do the double hashing pretty much to make further analysis of the hash function - if taken as a black box - easier?
  2022.  
  2023. csw [10:38 AM]
  2024. A double hash reduces the input to a hash and makes collisions infeasible

  2027. MD5, SHA1...
  2028.  
  2029. [10:38]
  2030. All of this goes away when you have a hash of a hash
  2031.  
  2032. [10:39]
  2033. That means that when there is a flaw in the code, the hash function I should say, you end with enough time to migrate away and to another and even those who are left do not have a more than nominal chance of compromise

  2658. Nothing of the last year was planned.
  2659.  
  2660. [12:41]
  2661. I listened to the wrong ideas and simply where we should be is ignoring and leaving the myth.
  2662.  
  2663. [12:42]
  2664. I had started to present my work. That is when the attacks started and i was not prepared for any of it.
  2665.  
  2666. [12:43]
  2667. I did not expect to have to explain the distinction between a PhD and a professional doctorate and I did not expect to have any of the other fabrications to defend.
  2668.  
  2669. [12:44]
  2670. I have learnt from this. I am saddened that people feel they need an authority and cannot learn and must come to a state where they express an attack as an opinion.
  2671.  
  2672. Yes, you can have an opinion, but this is not the same as a reasoned argument.
  2673.  
  2674. andrewquentson [12:45 PM]

  2686. iang [12:46 PM]
  2687. The events of 2015 - 2016 weren’t really of Craig’s wanting.  The first problem was the attacker and extortionists and various other sundy gossipers… so the writing was on the wall.
  2688.

  2690. In 2015 we were hacked and blackmailed

  2732.  
  2733. iang [12:49 PM]
  2734. Basically it’s as said - CSW was used to add a couple of zeros to the patent portfolio.  Which necessitated the ‘big reveal’ … circus.  Unfortunately, CSW fails at being a pop star.  Who knew…

  3278. @csw Thank you for helping to bring Bitcoin to life, and thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. I enjoyed reading Andrew O'Hagan's "The Satoshi Affair" piece. In it, it mentions the name "Satoshi Nakamoto" created from combining "Satoshi" (The Pokemon character Ash in Japanese) and "Nakamoto" (Tominaga Nakamoto being the Japanese merchant philosopher). Is this the correct origin on the moniker?
  3279.  
  3280. You had incredible forethought to create a pseudonym when creating Bitcoin, and creating the "myth" that resulted. Was this influenced by your academic background in Religion and Mythology?

  3501. I am fascinated by Tim May's crypto-anarchy. Unlike the communities
  3502. traditionally associated with the word "anarchy", in a crypto-anarchy the
  3503. government is not temporarily destroyed but permanently forbidden and
  3504. permanently unnecessary. It's a community where the threat of violence is
  3505. impotent because violence is impossible, and violence is impossible
  3506. because its participants cannot be linked to their true names or physical
  3507. locations.
  3508.  
  3509. Until now it's not clear, even theoretically, how such a community could
  3510. operate. A community is defined by the cooperation of its participants,
  3511. and efficient cooperation requires a medium of exchange (money) and a way
  3512. to enforce contracts. Traditionally these services have been provided by
  3513. the government or government sponsored institutions and only to legal
  3514. entities. In this article I describe a protocol by which these services
  3515. can be provided to and by untraceable entities.
  3516.  
  3517. I will actually describe two protocols. The first one is impractical,
  3518. because it makes heavy use of a synchronous and unjammable anonymous
  3519. broadcast channel. However it will motivate the second, more practical
  3520. protocol. In both cases I will assume the existence of an untraceable
  3521. network, where senders and receivers are identified only by digital
  3522. pseudonyms (i.e. public keys) and every messages is signed by its sender
  3523. and encrypted to its receiver.

  3666. Bitcoin allows for offline signing. It also has a separation of the validation function
  3667.  
  3668. [1:32]
  3669. The use of UTXO to mint coin at each transaction(these being in effect destroyed and created a new) allows for the use as cash and not an account

  3685.  
  3686. csw [1:35 PM]
  3687. Bm requires that the channel is encrypted. Basically, more than a VPN as the need for an untraceable connection means that attacks can be formed by link analysis

  3725. Bitcoin uses what is in effect a SEIR-c epidemic model. The messages are sent unencrypted but signed and the propagation (should) requires verification prior to forwarding
  3726.  
  3727. andrewquentson [1:41 PM]

  3729.

  3869. Craig Steven Wright
  3870. Craig Steven Wright (born October 1970) is an Australian computer scientist and businessman. He claims to be the real person behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto—the creator of bitcoin—a claim that is disputed within the bitcoin community.

  3873. 51% is just a convenient way of saying a slight majority.  Like 50% plus a little bit.

  3877. csw
  3878. Where this was solved is through the use of the gamblers fallacy. In this, we have the attacker under 51% (not 50) playing a game of roulette in effect.

  3969. prometheus [1:54 PM]
  3970. @csw are you concerned about any other alt-coins usurping BTC's position? The closest one I can currently see getting close is Ethereum (ETH), but I personally view it as being fundamentally flawed in that the chain is storing and processing all smart contract transactions (bad for storage and scaling) and there's a never ending inflation of the asset (bad for use as a hard currency).
  3971.  
  3972. Litecoin (LTC) is similar to BTC, in that it's capped, and plans to implement SegWit soon. There's a lot of hype around LTC right now, but I'm unconvinced it's sustainable, unless businesses actually start utilizing SegWit and implementing Lightning (which centralizes the network, in my opinion).
  3973.

  4022. The Transaction = H(TX) thing was something I found pretty critical in my work, and would naturally follow it.  But bitcoin’s UTXO layout is completely different, and it’s non-obvious.  Also the entire published ledger takes away the need to have a hash proof of existence.  Still, it complicates things having multiple valid transactions.

  4400. lets get to some issues: how does the aleph1 SHA256 work? I really like to have input on that, because although it sounds all nice, this one actually is a gaping hole in the above arguments, as far as I can see.

  4416.  
  4417. iang [2:13 PM]
  4418. I actually don’t follow that either.  Although SHA256 has infinite input, it is only used with a fixed length.  So in effect we have SHA256bis which has a finite input.  But I’m not a real cryptographer, I just play one on slack.
  4419.  
  4420. csw [2:13 PM]
  4421. AweM... As there is not a means to have a infinite input stream into SHA 256, it remains a discussion that is academic and not one that lends itself to slack
  4422.  
  4423. awemany [2:14 PM]

  4433. apologies to @csw , but I do think it's significant that SN is back (among the living? I assumed he was dead). If I've understood you're trying to create an entity or venue to compete with the ideas promoted by core. BU is such a thing, but a new branch with some well known names and gravitas is significant.

  4811. SegWit adds incentives for off chain systems at the expense of the main system.,_
  4812.  
  4813. This one has been bugging me. I've tried to prod core guys about whether they've looked at the consequences of this and thus far I haven't gotten a good reply. I understand they can code and all, but incentive structures need to be researched by people with an insight into systems and economics. The closest I got to an answer was : "Yes, the incentive structure will change."
  4814.  
  4815. Other than that I'm sure Segwit is a marble of engineering.

  4896.  
  4897. andrewquentson [2:30 PM]
  4898. if he could he would have jumped
  4899.  
  4900. csw [2:30 PM]
  4901. Segwit also makes the introduction of protocol change far easier than it should be. This is not simple a slippery slope argument, it means that developers and others who are not invested in the system (and I mean economically invested) can make changes that impact the wider system.
  4902.  
  4903. andrewquentson [2:30 PM]
  4904. like he did saying gewrn's blog is wrong
  4905.  
  4906. csw [2:31 PM]
  4907. Moving TxID = H(Tx, Sig) into TxID = H(Tx) plus Sig makes block validation less likely and extends verification
  4908.

  5828. @luke-jr Nope, a lot of miners are against segwit, and lots of users too unless it comes with a block size increase, so it should never be pushed through as a UASF
