Industry Heavy Hitters Reveal the ‘Real Satoshi’

Well, it’s never a dull day in Bitcoin-land, to say the least. Hours ago John Matonis tweeted to the public and revealed a blog called drcraigwright.net revealing a PGP signature from Dr. Craig Wright claiming to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Mainstream media publications such as BBC and GQ also pushed out stories assessing that Wright was most likely Nakamoto. Following this Gavin Andresen confirms that he believes Dr. Wright is the creator of Bitcoin. Now the community is in an uproar investigating the story once again.

The "proof" has been debunked already. Don't believe everything that media say. (See reddit.com/r/Bitcoin)

If you try to shut down public debate, is this a way of ensuring that you win—or an admission that you have already lost?

Morgan Stanley Claims Blockchain Still Has Obstacles

The giant corporation Morgan Stanley, a multinational financial service provider who focuses on wealth & asset management, has recently released a paper on blockchain technology. The report titled Global Insight: Blockchain in banking – disruptive threat or tool? explains the protocol will be a disruptive economic tool in the future. Despite knowing this, the firm says it will be quite some time before it affects legacy institutions.

Intel’s Sawtooth a ‘Poetic Consensus Environment’


The multinational tech corporation Intel, the largest semiconductor chip manufacturer, is currently keen on #blockchain technology. The Santa Clara, California-based company, announced its latest initiative called “Sawtooth Lake” this April alongside a Hyperledger technical discussion meeting. The firm intends to use the platform for building, launching, and operating distributed ledger environments. Intel says that this particular protocol provides an immutable digital record of asset ownership “without a central authority.”

George Washington may have once said something along the lines of: “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Actually, he probably didn’t say it. With quotes, though, it doesn’t matter who said it as long as it’s true. So, …

I guess technically I'm only a political libertarian, since Objectivism is a slightly separate philosophy from the tradition that seems to be most highlighted by Rothbard, although I'm sure there's other names is significance too. By definition, given the acceptance of the nonaggression principle, technically it's "libertarian" because it gives uptake to that principle. But, I don't think the top figures of the movement have ever actually said that they think of themselves as the same thing as the libertarians. At most, either the Atlas Society or the ARI (I've forgotten which) has at least called for a sort of truce and open discussion, as distinct from the earlier closed door disagreement attitude, but even that isn't saying "we're the same" so much as "we share these things, so maybe we should start talking and working with each other a bit more."

What are your views on HOAs? Personally, I hate them, and I also think that in most cases (ie where 51% dictate standards to the rest) that they are a violation of the NAP. But what about requiring membership in an HOA as a condition of selling/buying a home? If stipulations like that were included in the contract, does that still violate the NAP?

A lot of people also don't realize that just because you've signed something in a contract, doesn't necessarily mean that it is a) technically enforceable, and/or b) legally enforceable (via market-based or state law).

Judges regularly throw out unreasonable parts of a contract. They are a judge for a reason. They judge the contract as well as the circumstances surrounding it and whether people held up their end of the bargain or not.

Not on the list: Agnostic.

I don't know how far we can go in improving society by reducing government -- I've known too many decent and reasonable anarchists and minarchists, and heard too many decent and reasonable arguments -- but I'm looking forward to learning experimental results.  That's what you do, when theories are in conflict, and so are intuitions.

I'm looking forward to the time when the biggest question remaining for libertarians is: What would be best choice for the next piece of government to eliminate?

Right now, we're in what I understand soldiers call a "target-rich environment".  We're surrounded.  Almost anywhere you look is something that's ripe for removal.
