*** That is wikileaks for psychopaths, as presented:
"Its estimated that 5% of the general population are psychopaths.
Introducing financial incentive in an anonymous framework will produce a
greater yield of leaked information than from say the ideology that
drove patriots like Edward Snowden. For every idealist willing to
selflessly sacrifice their freedom, assets and even risk their lives for
a greater good, there are 1000 psychopaths willing to anonymously sell
out their peers for material gain."
"Exclusive bidders attempt to purchase the data for their own use and /
or prevent other parties from acquiring a copy. Should an exclusive
bidder win the auction they alone will receive the decryption keys. The
same data cannot be auctioned a second time on the Slur marketplace."
Those are the psychopaths and sociopaths with infinite funds as they
steal them from the public, like good organized criminals they are, in
the form of taxes, property, and exploitation.
"Crowd bidders pool their funds into a single bid. Should they win the
auction the network will release the decryption keys to all users on the
Slur marketplace and the information will therefore become public."
That's us, the public in need of the leaks.
At the risk of being publicly slurred, I don't think openness is good.
I think opacity is better than transparency in general. I like secrets.
What I don't like is psychopathy, corruption, sociopathy, power and the
abuse of it. Opening an information market will certainly keep the bad
guys going, not stop them. The bad guys will buy the secrets, sell
lesser secrets on their enemies, and slur will become a second-hand
pre-emptive declassification market to keep people away from the real
stuff. Lost in translation.
But yeah, why not? Turning anything into a market seems to be the way
to go--not. So, libertarians, prove me wrong. The only way I see this
becoming useful is if it forces the value of XBT up against the USD.
