09-10-2016 11:37:51 <adlai> by "sybil" here i just mean multiple scripts run by the same entity
09-10-2016 11:37:15 <kakobrekla> in case of sybil i get that the join will also fail ?
09-10-2016 11:24:24 <kakobrekla> how do you recover from sybil?
09-10-2016 11:21:17 <adlai> but there are fewer counterparties at larger amounts, so you have a higher chance of falling prey to a sybil attack
28-03-2016 19:19:01 <asciilifeform> but i ~can~ show that sybil net would have easily achieved the result he attributes to miner cartel.
23-03-2016 18:06:48 <asciilifeform> whether or not you credit the chinese miners, the sybil net, or the devil, whoever,
14-03-2016 18:52:37 <asciilifeform> there is a network, consisting, apparently, mostly of sybil.
14-03-2016 18:01:40 <asciilifeform> the number is simply to ensure that folks connecting at random, in public toilets, end up with a thick layer of sybil between them and the statistically probable genuine non-gangrenous flesh somewhere far away.
14-03-2016 18:00:57 <asciilifeform> sybil attacks work not because there are many sybils, but because they ~act in concert~
08-03-2016 04:43:23 <ben_vulpes> near as i can tell, mircea_popescu went to pop a mining cartel and only caught a sybil.
07-03-2016 23:31:22 <mircea_popescu> asciilifeform even so, i don't think banning sybil reduces to "unable to talk to white devils".
07-03-2016 23:27:58 <asciilifeform> sybil octopus can get between victim and miners as a whole. and yes, this is enabled by the concentration of hash power in a shithole kingdom.
07-03-2016 23:27:13 <asciilifeform> at any rate i am broadly unconvinced that network sybil octopus needs any kind of miners other than a small share of standard hashrate.
07-03-2016 23:11:15 <davout> http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=07-03-2016#1425817 <<< the "sybil testing" part is not documented in the qntra piece or did I miss it?
07-03-2016 23:11:15 <assbot> Logged on 07-03-2016 23:07:12; mircea_popescu: but, generally speaking, sybil testing on purported bitcoin nodes are a good idea, especially if carried out in secret and uncoordinatedly.

25-01-2016 21:32:24 <thestringpuller> https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/42n7r0/how_to_sybil_attack_bitcoinclassicconsiderit_with/ << LOL. The Toomim's are getting hit with Sybil attacks now.
14-01-2016 23:13:58 <adlai> "can read source and figure out wtf it does and why" is almost as sybil-resistent as PoW
