Evidence mounting that U.K.’s vote leave campaign funded in part by American fracking interests. This is particularly sad, given what we know about fracking. Trump will make some pro-Brexit (read: fracking) statements soon. #Brexit
Every #Brexiter I spoke with told me, when I explained Brexit would be an economic disaster, they didn’t care if UK’s economy suffered. This report will confirm Brexit’s a bust, but it won’t change anyone’s mind.

Kelly Criterion illustrated - or: why position size is key to trading.
As a trader, your edge will never consistently be higher than 10%. This is why professional technical traders never risk more than 1% of their portfolio per trade. https://t.co/6YcUjKzQKY
Bear markets strengthen the survivors. It's okay to feel sick through the process, it's these depths that later give strength.

Anonymity is power.

I don't agree with the theory that Bitcoin miners create a price floor based on break even costs. The other day I talked to a data center provider whose miners had an electricity cost of >$2,000 per Bitcoin. Miners follow price, they don't create it.
Motivations are often stronger than incentives. Many will pay big for more expected future control over other peoples' money. Even more wasteful struggles for control exist at much larger scales in digitally centralized (mistakenly called "traditional") financial operations.

I look forward to a year from now when we'll be watching r/btc argue about which coin is the real "ABC". More splits are inevitable. Too many egos that want control for this to not end with more splits.
Notice: ECDSA signatures where the message isn't a hash and chosen by the "signer" are insecure.
Given public key P, pick random nonzero values a and b. Compute R=aG+bP. Now (R.x, R.x/b) is a valid signature for "message" (R.x*a/b).
What if the BCH drama was actually kayfabe?
So wonderful seeing @Snowden retweet this beautiful passage. Literally the only text I remember from my highschool English classes, and I made such an impression on me growing up.
Looks like Satoshi's Vision could soon have more hashing power than ABC.
I can only imagine how Coinbase's legal team feel about having to support a coin spearheaded by a cryptographically proven scammer.
Rule-based signals cut through interpersonal fog, enabling society to work over much larger scales. This happens with necessary imperfection and often in opposition to our locally evolved moral instincts. https://t.co/dRIPJPpnM9

SEC ordered two ICOs to compensate investors. I imagine this precedent will inspire class action lawsuits against ICOs, leading to potentially severe financial pressure on their treasuries. #dishoarding https://t.co/oLvg7TKYUs
