1. Queue all orders
2. Delay. 1 second? 2 seconds? Even maybe 5 seconds.
3. Randomise the queue
4. Execute all orders
5. Goto 1

Kills front running, probably kills HFC. Basically strategy proofs the whole thing. Somebody cryptomath geek can probably finess the protocol some more, but this is the basic plan.

Comment Inherently unsafe (Score 1) 328 328

Nuclear reactors are inherently unsafe. There is no fool proof method to ensure cooling.

Which is why it is not possible to actually insure them. So they are subsidised.

Which is why nuclear energy is artificially cheap.

There are so many other inherently safe methods of producing power, that nuclear is ridiculous. Get over it already.
