so is there any reason why I can’t just fork Ethereum, transfer NFTs to myself, and be able to view my new prized JPEGs on TopShot or whatever this sports cryptokitties 2.0 thing is?

MicroStrategy software was showing it's age in 2010 when they tried to make a vague attempt at making a web portal while Microsoft, Tableau and others were eating their lunch, can't imagine what it's like now.

And yet the stock is on a rocketship to the moon. I guess Saylor is trying to break his record of losing 13 billion dollars in the Dot Com Bubble

yeah that sounds right according to this. Looks like it filters out most of the plots, only 1 out of every 512 plots is eligible, and then diving deeper into the noise when there's an initial match

if crypto has to exist, maybe it's better than running GPUs at full tilt, but then again it shouldn't exist at all

also the idealism of "you can run it on your phone" is very cute, as if using 100gb on your phone (1 plot) against a network of close to an exabyte would ever make sense

what ever happened to Colored Coins, did they finally realize how bad the name sounded

quote:

https://www.chia.net/2021/09/23/chia-token-standard-naming.en.html
We’re in the process of making a real standard for tokens which will guarantee interoperability for developers who follow it, and it needs a name. In the past we’ve used the term ‘coloured coins’ in our documentation and code to refer to tokens built on top of Chia. This has the disadvantage that it’s an esoteric bit of jargon, refers to a general concept rather than our specific implementation, and ‘coloured’ is a loaded term in many parts of the world.

Wouldn’t doing that wash trade with the $500M Punk raise it’s value high above the cost basis? And because it’s a securities event, would result in a top of short term taxable gains?

the IRS or SEC probably doesn’t get into the weeds on stuff like this, but given that these transactions are traceable… well I can dream of one day all these chucklefucks owing back taxes in the hundreds of millions.



there’s also the fun possibility of more people trying this and then messing it up, and now they are holding a huge bag that can’t be paid off and more and more people losing their crypto when the flash loan defaults.

its pretty much that, right? last time i looked like a month ago there were only 2.7M "ape" NFTs on opensea.

now:



for all the complaining coiners like to do about inflation and "printer go brrr" memes, they seem to have whole heartedly embraced engaging in it themselves

Give 7 million coiners 7 million apes and they’ll eventually re-enact the history of finance
