You're being rather obnoxious about this, and I don't understand why. If you'd rather not answer my questions, please don't; perhaps someone else will. I'm not an idiot, I've read your whitepaper more than once, I've read your FAQ and weaknesses section, and I still have questions. Have you considered alternate explanations beyond "Evan is an idiot"? Some obvious ones that spring to mind include:
* I haven't communicated my questions in a way you understand
* You haven't communicated your answers in a way I understand
* The answers exist and are well communicated, but are difficult to find
I was specifically trying to assume the third case when I created the thread. It's not obvious where to find an index of such papers, or whether they exist. What I'm hoping is that the original whitepaper spurred some discussion (probably in the form of forum posts or email threads or irc chats) that is a lot of work to follow, and that someone then turned that discussion into papers that reasonably summarize the state of the art of current (or near-current) research. It seems to me the "papers" section on the website hasn't been updated in quite some time.
Searching "free rider" in the white paper produces no results, "free" produces 6 that look unrelated. I haven't reread the entire thing, but I did skim it and look at every page, and didn't see anything that looked relevant. The paper has no table of contents, and no index that would make finding such things easy if I chose the wrong search terms but knew what good search terms might look like. I've been reading forum posts a bit, but have yet to read all of them. I freely admit my understanding of the state of the art of Truthcoin is neither complete nor fully current; that's why I was asking if there exists a good index of the current state of the art, so that I could get up to speed faster than reading everything that's ever been written, in particular the results of post-whitepaper research.
When Zack started a list of known attacks going, I figured I'd add to it. I'm well aware there has been discussion of some of these attacks before, both the ones Zack listed and the ones I listed. I was assuming nothing I said was novel, merely asking where to find organized info, if such info has been organized.
re: #3, what is the expected sequence of events when one trader is willing to buy YES shares at probabilities as high as 0.51, the price is currently 0.51, a new trader arrives who is willing to buy NO shares at probabilities as low as 0.49, and their willingness to trade is large compared to the amount of liquidity the AMM will provide between those prices? Does this result in more than 2 transactions? Do those transactions leak information in such a way that someone can make informed HFT guesses about the traders intents and make money?
