Signet Could Give Bitcoin a More Stable, Predictable ...

[Article] O V E R D A R K

So I'm looking through my old yearbooks, and I'm realizing that I missed out on a crucial part of my life: during high school, I was supposed to have a punk phase. I can't believe I missed it! It seemed like everyone was rocking their unruly hair, their unkempt clothes, and their general disaffection towards life. Man, Green Day released new records, and there was an unrelenting hatred for all types of authority figures...
Wait, this is just a slab of concrete with newspaper articles from 2020 stapled to it, isn't it.
Regardless, the universe is telling me it's time for me to reclaim my lost childhood experiences; to go back to a better time. Unfortunately, latent legal issues surrounding my controversial "BONG HiTS 4 JESUS" sign prevent me from going within 500 feet of any type of school, so winning the basketball championship and visiting the aquarium are right out. But I can still be the moodiest, edgiest, darkest person on the planet, and now that I've beaten Shadow the Hedgehog all the way through and went to Hot Topic, it's time to build a commander deck that's truly me. Presenting: RAMSES O V E R D A R K!
[[Ramses Overdark]] {2}{U}{U}{B}{B} Legendary Creature — Human Assassin {T}: Destroy target enchanted creature. 4/3 
Ramses is the bad boy your mother would never let take you to IHOP. Not that he'd care; his business is killing, and he's efficient at it too, costing the least out of any commander I've ever written about. You want to sit around and drink tea with your little enchanted princess friends? Ramses Overdark is here to tell you how the real world works. Nothing personnel, kid.

Commander For You

Like a TI-83 Silver Edition, Ramses is a stone-cold calculating problem solver, but he only gets that way with some preparation. See, killing is a business, Ramses' business, and the one thing every business needs is synergy. So call me Nathan Fielder, because I'm going to unveil the plan that will keep this enterprise running smoothly:

Half Up-Front

As a teenager, I procrastinated from my task of being edgy by protesting government-backed financial institutions with the Bitcoin community, and one thing you learn there very quickly is that assassination ain't cheap.
The first and most obvious barrier to breaking 18 U.S. Code § 1117 is his six mana casting cost, and unlike Gabriel, Ramses demands something a little more tangible than a green thumb to appease him. We're going to use the usual fare: rings, trinkets, stones, lockets, relics... archives... spheres? With you as an investor, Ramses' business (which is killing) will make a killing, letting us take full advantage of Revel in Riches as both a ramp tool and backup win condition.
Ramses will also often require additional gas to keep going, whether it be finding a steady stream of enchantments to throw onto enemies, or to finding ways to close out games.

Murder, Inc.

Enchantment payoffs are few and far between in Dimir, so we're keeping this build a bit creature-light; but the ones we take with are absolutely vital for our success. While Ramses is no Cleopatra, he's still managed to form relationships with some important Greek allies:

Poaching Employees

Our deck only runs sixteen creatures, and while being a lone-wolf is edgy, it's not the type of edge I want to be. I feel like I'm a Halloween bobbing apple -- razor edgy; the type of edge that speaks to people, in the very depths of their soul, and causes them to rebel against the man. In the end, I will be so edgy that even those rotten adults will realize I'm right.
Enchant opposing creatures with reanimation-on-death enchantments:
Once opposing creatures are enchanted with one of these Auras, they become juicy targets for Ramses, as killing them will put them into play under your control. Unfortunately, six isn't a critical mass for Ramses; to ensure that Ramses' business isn't killed by a lack of clientele, let's use some recursive enchantments.
Rounding out the auras, we've got a few utility spells we can play for neat effects:
A lot of creatures are going to end up dead, which makes Rise of the Dark Realms a great end-game finisher. But that's boring. Are you ready to learn Ramses' true dark secret? Because here's where I blow your mind.

Drake in the 99 Non-Dragons

Your real win condition is some random uncommon from Urza's Saga.
That makes no sense.
It makes total sense. You start by playing Iridescent Drake, so...
This combo will make you feel like Joker, because your opponents will never see it coming.
You've got some redundancy in the deck in case things don't pan out: use Fallen Ideal as your sacrifice outlet and win condition to swing with an evasive infinity/infinity attacker, or deal damage using Grim Guardian's Constellation trigger. Should Iridescent Drake be interacted with (which is illegal, by the way), use Ill Gotten Gains to get your combo pieces back to hand and recur some protective counterspells.
I'm not a punk, I'm a goddamn dragon genius. Finally, the deck is truly me!

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Ramses Overdark deck for the Commander format is a fun and powerful budget deck for you to try. I hope you enjoyed reading my paper as much as I enjoyed writing-
...Buh?
Oh. I guess I reverted to hastily written high school paper writing. Is that really what I sounded like?
You know, people say you never really realize what you have until it's gone. It's easy to look to memories of better days and feel that melancholy drop in your stomach. It's natural to feel wistful for a time past when rain drips down the window. But the truth is also that you don't really realize what you don't have until you obtain it. Our experiences may be painful now, but that's no reason to give up hope. You can get over darkness. Look forward instead of back, because in that future lies a wiser you.

Blockstream’s end game is now fully exposed: They first crippled Bitcoin, and now they provide the solution: Convert to “Liquid Bitcoin”. Mobile wallets are coming soon, and they will want every crypto, asset and project to run on Liquid. We predicted it.

To leverage sidechain’s features, users have to exchange mainnet BTC for Liquid Network’s L-BTC using peg addresses.
‘Moving forward, Liquid hopes to expand its membership and build out its services. These services could include Issued Assets (IA), Mow explained, what amount to “native tokens within the Liquid blockchain.” These IA could be security tokens, tokenized commodities/real-world assets or even Ethereum.’
‘More than IA, Mow stated that Liquid has “a lot of things coming down the pipe” following its launch. These include a Liquid Testnet that is anchored to Blockstream Signet (Blockstream’s testnet for Bitcoin), GreenAddress integration, a Liquid mobile wallet for mobile platforms, a user interface for Issued Assets, a Liquid Block Explorer and hardware wallet support. He expects these features to be fully functioning by 2018, with more coming in 2019.’
“The end game is a platform for the trustless exchange of many assets, with Bitcoin at the center,” said Mow. “We’ve seen an incredible interest from parties interested to issue tokens and assets on Liquid as well. They’ve just been waiting for a secure and reliable solution to do so.”

New Ragman Quest path line and re-write of quests.

Well hello there,
I've taken a liberty and re-wrote Ragman quest line and flavor text to suit quest path line better. Where it would make sense why you're running the tasks and make them matter as a story. So here it goes. The screenshot is how each quest will be given, which is pointed to the new quest that follows it. Below are rewrites of each quest (no reward edits).

https://preview.redd.it/w6mkq6ha3ru21.png?width=2683&format=png&auto=webp&s=88bc90809aad6395f4240bdf15e0381745d94332
[Only Business]
Ah, a new face! Welcome! Pardon the lack of warez, it's just the situation we have on our hands, and in my city, is total shit. I'm sure you're aware, otherwise you wouldn't be at my shop. Browse around and let me know if you see anything you like.

Requirements
Must be Level 5 to start this quest.

Obtain level 2 loyalty with Ragman

{With your shopping habit I might keep my store open longer than expected.}

[Big Sale!]
You know, bro, I'll tell you what, rags will always be of value. War or no war, people are still buying that stuff. Ultra had a bunch of brand outlets, the ones folks used to hype on, I could use fresh supply. Think you could do a quick sweep of the place? Look if there is anything left. Just don't go about rummaging through some trash, brand stuff only.
• Check AVOKADO
• Check KOSTIN
• Check tRend
• Check DINO CLOTHES
• Check TOP BRAND
• Survive and leave the area

{Well, this is fine. However, it seems that the Scavs will be my main competition. }

[Make ULTRA great again]
Just imagine how many folks used to hang around at Ultra, mommies with kids, couples, and so on, everybody stocked tight, too. Damn, felt sooo cool, maybe you remember, a lot of movement went down. But I digress into nostalgia, no time for that, let's get shit done, yo. Do the world a favor, clean the Ultra up from Scavs, so I could send my boys in. And to make sure those pricks get the message - get yourself some our freshly stocked Crye Precision AVS and something to cover that face, so they'd know who sent you. Ya! That should send them a warning what is gonna happen if they don't leave.

Kill 20 Scavs at the Interchange. You must wear a fleece hat and Crye Precision AVS vest

{Fleece hat? What kind of face cover is that?. Well, not like anyone is left alive to recognize your face anyway.}

[Database part 1]
Well hi there, brother, I've got an idea. Just imagine how fucking awesome it would be to have an all of Ultra's stocks. What was shipped, where, and what amount? I used to work with records like these myself. Fat chance there were any at small shops and outlets, they may have been run by slackers, but larger stores and retails chains definitely kept their records. There should be print outs of the records in the higher ups office desks.

• Get Goshan cargo manifests
• Hand over Goshan cargo manifests
• Get OLI cargo manifests
• Hand over OLI cargo manifests
• Get IDEA cargo manifests
• Hand over IDEA cargo manifests

{A magic friend is what you are bro! Your service is greatly appreciated.}

[Database part 2]
Bro! Look at this OLI manifest, do you see it? I Spotted it right away! Anyway, large cargo didn't make it. Carried something valuable batteries, bottles? With this coffee stain it's hard to make it out. But apparently, it got stuck somewhere. The logistics service usually keeps records on the routes and the last status of the shipping at the OLI logistics offices. Visit and try to recover the records.

• Get OLI cargo route documents
• Hand over OLI cargo route documents

{They are probably still intact, hope it is not far from here.}

[Minibus]
Oh, I'm glad to see you so. Let's go straight to business, I have to fetch or deliver quite frequently, carrying everything as a mule is hardly an option anymore. All vehicles are dead after some kind of an EMP strike during the mess outbreak. Nothing will start no matter how hard you try, even if you take them apart and put back together, only cars that came from outside can still run. There are bound to be some minibusses at the parking lot at the Interchange, mark three of them with beacons.

• Mark first minibus
• Mark second minibus
• Mark third minibus
• Survive and leave the area

{Know a good Mechanic?}


[Sales Night]
Bro! I don't think Scavs are getting the message that you're trying to send. They say, ULTRA got worse after you cleaned it up. Word is, it started to attract all sorts of scum. Make sure it gets nice and quiet, please, real need.

Survive in the raid at Interchange 7~10 times

{Wow, you’re like a scarecrow or something. }

[The Blood War - part 1]

I've contacted your recommended Mechanic. Tight-lipped type, keeps silent all the time. He was not pleased with minibus status, but said that he needs fuel. And I remember that there were tanks at Ultra, on tow trucks with the German flag. To cut the long story short, go and mark them with beacons, and I hope fuel is all Mechanic needs, he promised to fix my minibus. Did you know that he charges by the hour?

• Mark tank 1
• Mark tank 2
• Mark tank 3
• Survive and leave the area

{Good, I'll send some grunts there. }


[The Blood War - Part 2]
Hey bro, how are you? All in good health? Good! To business then. So, I need you to bring me a few cans of fuel additives. They are usually used to improve the quality of fuel for the portable generators. They might do wonders for my minibus'. Until we meet again, brother.

• Get in raid Fuel conditioner, 6 pcs
• Hand over Fuel conditioner, 6 pcs

{Mechanic was asking for it, I hope it's what he needs.}

[The Blood War – Part 3]
Salam. Got some good information from a guy, he was leaving Factory going through the woods section outside. There is the lumber mill there, told me that he found some stashes, filled with fuel barrels. Who made those stashes? PMC's or Scavs? They could be empty, but it's worth checking out. I want you to mark those stashes for me.


• Find and mark first fuel stash • Find and mark second fuel stash • Find and mark third fuel stash • Survive and leave the area 


{Thanks a lot, I'll send the boys over, see if it was worth the cost of markers.}


[Sew it good – part 1]
I have a solid business proposal for you. Don't you worry, I'm not shitting you, the real deal. Can't say what it is right now, but if it starts off good, I'll be sure to tell you. I need a couple of large backpacks, blue "Pilgrim" ones, and a couple of mask hats, you know, with ninja-type slits

• Get Ski hat with holes for eyes, 2 pcs • Hand over Ski hat with holes for eyes, 2 pcs • Get Pilgrim Tourist Backpack, 2 pcs • Hand over Pilgrim Tourist Backpack, 2 pcs 

{Found in museum no doubt.}

[Sew it good – part 2]

Ever been shot at? I know, it was a trick question. Listen, I need you to find me a good light weight armor.


• Get Gzhel in 0-50% condition • Hand over Gzhel in 0-50% condition • Get Gzhel in 50-100% condition • Hand over Gzhel in 50-100% condition 


{Hit or miss, we'll see soon enough.}

[Sew it good – part 3]

Are you aware of any armor that could just sponge up shower of bullets? Something that a cowered can wear and feel safe.

• Get 6B43 with 0-50% condition • Hand over 6B43 with 0-50% condition • Get 6B43 with 50-100% condition • Hand over 6B43 with 50-100% condition 

{Look at this thing! Doesn't even have pockets.}

[Sew it good – part 4]

Bro! Since armor that you got for me doesn't have pockets. Could you get me tactical vests at least a couple of sets and I'll compare them and pick which one is better.

• Get in raid Wartech (TV-109, TV-106) • Hand over 2 Wartech (TV-109, TV-106) • Get in raid Crye Precision AVS • Hand over 2 Crye Precision AVS • Get in raid BlackRock chest rig • Hand over 2 BlackRock chest rig 

{We're in business! Time to find out what kind of valuables those trucks have in them. }


[The key to success]

Brother! You've done great things for me. Since trucks turned out to be empty by the time we got there, on way back it got me thinking. Perhaps I should start to sew it myself, but for that. I need a book. A rare bitch, true, but since you can fetch a devil from hell. Get me a read about designing clothes from special fabrics, all that military stuff has to be made with aramid fabric, which has its own tricks to it. There is a kind of reference book on them, in two volumes, if you can get it, that's where I sew it good.

• Get Clothes design handbook Part 1 • Hand over Clothes design handbook Part 1 • Get Clothes design handbook Part 2 • Hand over Clothes design handbook Part 2 

{Wow, hard cover and first edition.}


[No Fuss needed]

Here is a note for the doc lady. Nothing much in there, just a couple of lines on our business. But here's the pain in the ass: if she knows that the note is from me, she'll tear it up in no time. Try to gain her favor first, earn some trust, and then pass the note over. And don't lose it, I'm not writing another one.

Increase the Therapist loyalty level to 3

{No note from her?}

[Charisma brings success]

Hey. I'll tell you, as a friend, that in trade it matters how you present yourself, not being a dork or a nerd. Then, not only girls, but also customers love you. This is my secret, feel free to use.

Increase the Charisma level to 10

{A True Bard!}

[Dressed to kill]

Brother! Until I can get my sewing production rolling I need something to start making side income for me. ULTRA is picked clean and nothing good left to grab, and that's where it hit me. Novelty items! Look for different kinds of hats on mannequins or shelves, you know, those like in western movies, and our ushankas.

• Hand over Ushanka ear-flap cap, 7 pcs
• Hand over Kinda cowboy hat, 7 pcs

{If this takes off, books were worth it for sure!}


[Gratitude]

I'd like to send a care package to that one dude that dropped us a tip with stashes . Get him fitted with some stuff, just so he'd know, Arshavir remembers. Leave the package at the pier in the Woods, he will pick it up, I'll let him know. Just hide it someplace between the barrels, so that nobody sees it.

• Find the secret spot
• Leave the Ghost balaclava in place
• Leave the Shemagh in place
• Leave the RayBench sunglasses in place
• Leave the Round frame sunglasses in place

{He'll pick it up, thanks for your trouble.}

[Hot Delivery]

Hey. My business is quite dangerous, it is good that you can safely come to visit me. But not all my clients can afford such luxury, one was already found in a pool of blood at the gas station. It appears that many are being watched, motherfuckers know they have thick wads. So clients don't want to drop by in the open, attracting more undesired attention. But that should not hinder the business, right? If people do not come for goods, goods go to people. Get the order prerequisites and hide the drop for proper folks at the Interchange. You need to drop 2 helmets and 2 headsets, plant them somewhere in Avokado. as for the 2 most exquisite Gzhel, bury them in the garbage heap, near the stage, also at Interchange.

• Stash Peltor ComTac 2 in specified place
• Stash 6B47 Helmet in specified place
• Stash BNTI Gzhel-K armor in specified place

{Nicely done, brother.}

[Supervisor]

While strolling through Ultra, you may have noticed how many cash registers are there, in stores and boutiques. Salvaging them all is impossible, but at least the cash can be taken. Should be especially plentiful at Goshan, not to take any risks, grab the spoils and go, but they are all locked, damn it. So I have an offer for you about that: get me a key from the registers, and I'll let you in on the cool schemes I've never shown to anybody. As a brother.

• Get key from Goshan cash registers
• Hand over key from Goshan cash registers

{Now that's a true Jigit! }

[Scavenger]

Every second is worth gold during firefight, it's important not only to save your skin but to carry out loot too. Good aiming is science and all but running away after that and staying alive with some goodies is not that simple of a task. It requires talent.

Earn 12 Search skill level

{Keep your backpack full of goodies.}


[Living High is not a crime - part 1]

Salam, recently, I was approached by the guy who's some sort of Dealmaker's acquaintance. Posh as fuck, in a suit, and with signet on his finger the size of a bottle cap. I've seen him at some gathering once, he used to drive a BMW. He says that war or no war, his crib got to be lit. Well, not exactly crib, more, like, hideout. Fetch me a bunch of jewelry, and I'll hand it over to him for these purposes. And search out some Roler watch, it will go as on the house, but it's best to be at good terms, with such people, believe me brother.

• Get Bronze lion, 4 pcs
• Hand over Bronze lion, 4 pcs
• Get Horse figurine, 4 pcs
• Hand over Horse figurine, 4 pcs
• Get Cat figurine, 4 pcs
• Hand over Cat figurine, 4 pcs
• Get Roler submariner gold wrist watch
• Hand over Roler submariner gold wrist watch

{From the bottom of my heart. Thank you! I'll make the delivery.}

[Living High is not a crime - part 2]

Hi! Do you remember the guy who had some business with Reshala? Who we gave the goodies last time. So, looks like he's got taste of luxury lifestyle now, he wants some antique vases and antique teapots, I understand it with the vases, but why the hell could he possibly need so many antique teapots? Anyway, deal is a deal, he pays well, thus we deliver the goods.

• Find 3 antique teapots in a raid
• Find 2 antique vases in a raid
• Handover 3 antique teapots
• Handover 2 antique vases

{Do you have it? Nice. I wonder what will he ask for next time? }


[Living High is not a crime - part 3]

Well the stupid kid, y'know the Dealmaker's acquaintance Who we gave the goodies last time. So, looks like he's got another request. He saw that Reshala had bitcoin on him, so he wants them in his pockets as well. He pays well, thus we deliver the goods.

• Find 10 Physical bitcoin in a raid
• Handover 10 Physical bitcoin

{Maybe this will make spoiled little shit happy. }

Idea: improve key renewal and revocation using Blockchain

I've been thinking today that current methods of PGP key renewal and revocation have some issues.
Let's say I have PGP key which expires soon. I create a new PGP key and send signed PGP message to everyone, who uses the old key saying: "Hello, my PGP will expire soon, my new one has fingerprint XYZ... Please update it."
The problem with this approach (beside having to send the e-mail to everyone) is that if one gets the e-mail later than expiration date he can't know whether it's legit or attacker broke the key and sent that message. So he must meet the key owner again and verify fingerprints.
To solve this problem Blockchain could be used. User who wants to renew the key signs the message and uploads to Blockchain via OP_RETURN. (or he just uploads it's hash and publishes message on his website/social media/whatever).
If anyone receives the message later, he can verify it was created prior to expiration date.
It becomes even more interesting when secp256k1 is involved instead of RSA. (Not part of PGP standard but theoretically possible in other signature schemes.) Then user can let Bitcoin network verify the signature too. (by sending small amount of Bitcoins to and from address generated from old key and tagging it in OP_RETURN)
There is also another problem: what if key is compromised before expiration date? Revocation signature must be created and published. Published revocation signature must be accessible to the verifier. Publishing it on website has obvious problems: first, website can be blocked, down or changed (revocation erased).
This is not possible with Blockchain. DoS is still possible but can be detected easily. So again, put revocation signature in OP_RETURN. This time, Bitcoin network can't be used to verify signature (because attacker could double spend in order to prevent signature from being stored into Blockchain). Also signature can't contain new key (attacker could do the same).
Now, how to securely put those two together? Rules:
TL;DR If implemented correctly, renewal and revocation of PGP keys could be improved (in terms of both security and usability) by embedding them into Blockchain.
