Please don't take this as an insult to your intelligence but (and I admit that I haven't done much research on this) I wonder whether you noticed that THESE bitcoins are wearing VR goggles.

TL;DR: The manner in which the blockchain distributes consensus and trust has applications outside of bitcoin and rules on how property can be exchanged can be programmed into the currency.

Unfortunately, our current models of business/finance/government aren't a suitable foundation for any of these distributed trust networks to be built on top of, as our current experiments with bitcoin are illustrating.

Even if the tech were disruptive to the point where it caused change in those institutions instead of being changed by them, by the time we're in a position to adopt this tech en masse, I imagine we'll also be in a position where our computing power causes us to have to rethink the cryptographic foundations of the protocol anyway.

The basic problem with bitcoin is that people are motivated to profit from trading in it. Applications of distributed trust/consensus that don't inspire people to trade/hoard/establish dodgy exchanges for whatever they are trusting each other about are a more realistic application, and non-bitcoin uses of blockchain technology exist but the trick there is getting people to adopt them without the incentive of trading cashdollars.

Lol, posting in a holist thread.

Are those links supposed to be identical?

This is what Holist not engaging on homeopathy looks like.

Also, I'm dubious of the idea that faking poor English avoids all stylometric markers, but good luck.

Okay, caught up on schtick. Still curious about English capability behind it.

notloki, is your English actually fine and you're just trying to avoid stylographic attacks on your anonymity?

Full list hasn't been released.

What it looks like this was, and what Dropbox is claiming it is, is a list of passwords compromised elsewhere, then checked against Dropbox users so they could pretend they stole them from there.

They release a small sample of these user/password combos and asked for bitcoin to release the rest (which they aren't likely to have many of).

If you want to check whether your email has been included in recent password dumps, check out https://haveibeenpwned.com/

No! I decided to shun you independently of your holistic history. Opportunity wasted!

WAIT. DODO IS HOLIST?

OKAY, IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW. AS YOU WERE, EVERYONE.

Looks like the passwords may have been sourced from third-party services, rather than from Dropbox itself. Still probably a good opportunity to change your password.

Passwords are annoying.

13
A bunch of valid username/passwords have been released on internets with claims they came from Dropbox and there are up to 7 million more to come.

Dropbox have just responded by force-resetting a bunch of passwords but best to get in early and reset your password yourself in case there's any downtime between release and Dropbox reset.

Also, if you use the same password in a lot of places, please don't do that and change those as well.

14
Don't worry, Dodo. While some of these other people are refusing to play along with your 'unjust persecution' interpretation of events, I am more than willing to totally write you off for no reason at all, other than that you don't seem to be very well liked by anyone else, because I want to support you and your position.

So fuck you and you're welcome.

This is the person who removed it: https://github.com/karelzak

Looks kinda outlandish.
