Reinvent blockchain


Public permissionless blockchains, such as bitcoin and Ethereum have forever changed the way we think of our societies.

They have shown that random, anonymous humans can be brought together to co-operate not only by a legal framework, which institutionalises the fear of not complying (and triggers reflexes of avoidance), but also by the power of economic incentives.

However, as much as they have been embraced by people who were feeling repressed and under-represented in the previous world of laws and institutions, their progression has markedly slowed down, almost stalled. Interest in the topic in the general population has dwindled and a general "blockchain fatigue" seems to have set in.

Let bitcoin be bitcoin. Let Ethereum be Ethereum. We need to focus on recasting the underlying blockchain technology into new roles which are integrated in the fabric of old, law-based societies. And in order to do this, we have to truly understand what blockchain is about ...

Thus I argue that blockchain is not only, nor primarily about 'chaining blocks'.

Rather, blockchain technology allows us to design new systems that can tap the human inclination to "respond to incentives" in order to trigger productive interactions which were previously not taking place.

Out of runway at take-off

Just like a heavy airplane, bitcoin, Ethereum and other public blockchain have had a few good years of "runway" to gain speed before taking off. But now the smooth strip of tarmac has run out ...

Public, permissionless blockchains are not going to "take over"

I do not mean to extend the "airplane at take-off" analogy to saying that bitcoin and Ethereum face a catastrophic future.

Quite the contrary, I believe that public, permissionless blockchains, most notably bitcoin and Ethereum are here to stay.

Bitcoin alone provides a check on the natural tendencies of human societies to concentrate power into few hands (i.e. "centralize power"), hands who then invariably end up abusing their power.

By providing a "safety valve" for cases where the institutions would be "captured" for furthering the interests of the powerful-few against the many, bitcoin and Ethereum have made the world more resilient, more robust, more "antifragile".

Bitcoin-enthusiasts think that "we are only at the start of an ineluctable march toward a gradual but complete upending of society". They believe that bitcoin, Ethereum, and other such public, permissionless blockchains are going to replace the existing society, based on laws, institutions - and ultimately trusting 'others'' - with a new, "trustless" order based on "cryptography and code". To them I say: public, permissionless blockchains have "run out of runway".

That doesn't need to mean that public, permissionless blockchains are going to disappear or anything. But I believe that bitcoin and Ethereum will remain in the "niches" they have successfully crafted for themselves. Efforts spent on expanding their use by, for instance, building "second layer applications", might be better applied elsewhere.

The law abiding blockchain

I believe that the technological prowess on which pseudonymous bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto has opened the world's eyes, the blockchain, has scope to "polinating" our society, in order to turn it into a fruitful new form. And the faster we realize that we, blockchain professionals have to "reinvent blockchain", the greater the benefits.

At first, there was "The Law"

At first, human life was, in Thomas Hobbes' words, "nasty, brutish and short" a life of "war of every man against every other man". If human societies have progressed, it is thanks to "The Law" - the "rules of the (social) game". The Law has codified the usage of violence. Yet the Law would have been but empty words without Enforcement. Thus Institutions have emerged to enforce The Law.

People were more-or-less free to do whatever they pleased as long as they abode by The Law. And they knew that: were one to break the law, one risked punishment.

This simple rule allowed people to interact with each other and organize and engage in productive undertakings.

Bitcoin doesn't need "The Law"

Probably the biggest revelation of bitcoin was that there can be something else which allows people to interact with each other and organize and engage in productive undertakings. Something that didn't need help from "The Law" and its enforcer Institutions.

To be fair, "open source software" had opened the way in this respect. The "open source software" community had always had an arm-length relationship with the law - witness the never-ending Waltz of licensing terms - "GNU", "BSD", "Copyleft", "Apache", "MIT", etc. - whose main focus seemed to be rendering any type of copyright enforcement moot.

Yet the open-source community is fueled by altruism and pro-bono efforts. What bitcoin, Ethereum and any other token-carrying blockchains have brought to the table was a back-end accounting system with a sui generis unit of account. In so doing, blockchain-based systems have attracted the far larger share of people motivated by profit.

For the first time in history, it became possible to pursue profit outside the protective frame of The Law.

In other terms, mathematics, cryptography and running code offered an alternative to the frame of The Law for engaging in lucrative undertakings!

Blockchain is not (only) about chaining blocks

One of the reasons why I believe bitcoin and Ethereum have "run out of runway" and are not likely to "take off / over" is that, not only these systems do not need the law, they are in essence a law unto themselves and alternatives to The Law. They are imbued by a spirit of challenge to the existing established order (perceived as skewed in favor of the rich and powerful).

In blockchain systems like bitcoin and Ethereum there are no written contracts and no enforcement agencies. Participants do not need to "show ID" in order to enter, do business, and exit at any time and without asking permission.

By design, the only thing bitcoin and Ethereum rely on is the assumption that participants will act in their own best (economic) interest, that they will act rationally, trying to preserve the system and further their own personal interest.

It is the technology itself (based on mathematics and cryptography) which both:

  • makes plain the rules, and
  • ensures their enforcement

bitcoin and Ethereum have been successful in supporting and automatizing productive human interactions without the need for an externally-enforced system of rules, without the need for The Law.

This ability to "function with little need for The Law" is the revolutionary feature of blockchain technology. Not the "chaining of blocks".

For the past three years or so, I have heard about and come across many corporate projects labelled as "blockchain projects". Most, if not all "blockchain"-labelled applications I saw in the law-based society were missing the point of blockchain though.

They were "chaining blocks" of data all right, in a secure and more-or-less transparent manner. Important, but hardly revolutionary. Control was exclusively based on written contracts and the assumption that external law agencies will arbitrate in case of need. They were completely ignoring the power of incentives. Either they did not include a token at all or, if a token was present, they were ignoring its presence in the system design and assigned it no role at all.

Blockchain can be law abiding

What I have depicted above might be seen as a dichotomy, but needs not be.

At one end, we have the current world of "The Law" where very little (of importance) happens without a written contract and the explicit (or implicit) reference to external enforcement mechanisms and agencies.

At the other end, bitcoin and Ethereum are emphatically insisting on doing away with any form of written contract. "Code is law". Participants do not even need to identify themselves, so assigning responsibility becomes arduous. No enforcement agency exists in these systems, aside perhaps the "moral authority" of the core developers.

Yet a continuum stretches between the two ends. A law-based society like the one we live in can very well benefit from the helping-hand of "law-like" code. The two are not mutually exclusive.

By adding the powerful math and cryptography which have been used in bitcoin and Ethereum to well-designed systems, we can bridge the gap that seems to separate the two ends.

Indeed, in certain situations The Law seems to struggle to trigger productive interactions.

This is the kind of situation, the type of project that blockchain specialists need to focus on: inside the law-based society, designing systems that tap the human tendency to respond to incentives and act in their own best interest in order to trigger interactions which were not taking place without those systems.

Yes, it goes without saying: transacting securely and with a configurable level of transparency are essential technical features. They are necessary, but not sufficient.

What makes blockchain "an innovation that Europe cannot afford to miss" - in the words of European Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, is the ability of well-designed blockchain systems to tap the power of economic incentives in order to trigger novel, productive interactions. Interactions which would not have taken place without it.

Blockchain technology provides a shared, secure accounting system for participants to be able to trust each other. Bitcoin, Ethereum, steem and other successful public permissionless blockchains have proven that such systems, when well designed, can increase the trust level just enough for new, productive interactions to begin.

The European Financial Transparency Gateway is, to my knowledge, the first real-world application of the principles successfully proven by bitcoin and Ethereum. Not only "securely chaining blocks" but also the power of incentives to make people engage in productive undertakings for which The Law was not enough.

I believe this is the type of project Europe and the world need more of: designing novel systems with the ability to spark new, mutually-beneficial collaborations.


If you know what witnesses are and agree that people commited to keeping this blockchain ticking play an important role ...

Downvoted because of bought votes. For Proof-of-Brain to work on Steem, buying votes must be strictly for paid promotion only and thus have negative return on investment.

Setting @null as a beneficiary for a large proportion of the rewards would be the best way to avoid downvotes.

That's pretty cheap attention anyway and one must take into account that curation snipers will emerge, which will improve the vote buyer's ROI.

4% cost is not enough. It still incentivizes vote selling and taking private gains from the common reward pool (which then leads to a race to the bottom of vote selling) over directing payouts according to even subjective value.

Directing some of the rewards to @null would help offset the difference and make this less harmful and therefore more socially acceptable.

Interesting read. Personally, it is my hope that we replace governments with decentralized systems over time. Laws are being made all the time with citizens not knowing they are being made and without realizing they will soon be subject to these new laws. That is not a sustainable or healthy system.

I came to realize that most citizens do not much care about new laws they will be subject to. It was quite a shock for me to realize that a vast majority prefers to live in blissful ignorance ...

This is $100 not $10.

Steemium reports $38 used to buy votes. That's way more than needed to get a reasonable visibility just start, and probably doesn't count all the bought votes.

03.01.2020 00:22

34$ is USD so 34*2/0.6 = 133 SBD

I say spent 10$ as example because that's about the cost after downvotes.

"Given how good this product is, there is little doubt that it would have sold well even without advertising" ... if this reasoning held true, the advertising industry would not be worth hundreds of billions of dollars, wouldn't you say ?

But ok, steem is a lot less crowded by good content than the markets are crowded by good products so perhaps you are right in the case of steem, I'll try as well.

However what you are implying is that because bot-usage can be abused it means all bot-advertising is bad and should be fought.

Think about it: because some people abuse bots, all bot usage is bad ? Does that sound ok to you ?

You’re welcome to use bots to boost the visibility of your posts. All you need to do is decline rewards. This way you won’t be taking from the rewards pool.

05.01.2020 09:31

Wait a moment ... I fail to see how that makes sense ... if I publish content and do not use bots, it's ok to get rewards from the reward pool ... but if I publish content AND in addition send steem to bots (which also requires some effort and thus, as the steem whitepaper notices, it is a form of work), it becomes "not ok" to get any rewards at all ...

In other words, "it's ok to work more, but only if you accept to spend for working more instead of being rewarded for working less" ... what kind of logic is that ?

No, it means that you are struggling to justify the use of bots to increase your exposure.

I’m also not interested in debate. As you can see by the value of downvotes on your post, many Steemit users dislike the use of bots. My vote value is the least of your concerns should you continue to use them.

05.01.2020 23:35
0

I am actually not interested in the vote values.

The debate, on the contrary, is central to the future of steem. In general, these types of debates have always appeared in new social systems, they are bound to appear.

These are debates about how the system behaves when people are not doing what the creators of the system have hoped they would be doing, but are rather trying to "increase their utility".

I do not feel a need now to justify the use of bots. Do you think companies need to justify their use of ad-agencies to advertise their products ?

Have you ever seen a company wringing its (virtual) hands because they felt embarrassed that they advertised their products ? You haven't, right ?

On the other hand, I have already written a theoretical treatment of the topic of "advertising bots", you are welcome to comment it:

https://steempeak.com/steem/@sorin.cristescu/how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-bid-bots

In short, bots offer a service which is potentially desirable to people from outside the steem system. Bots can add to the number of people who take the jump and decide to buy steem with fiat. And the steem ecosystem needs those people, as I explain in the above paper.

06.01.2020 20:04

Sure, buy votes to advertise your content. Just make sure you are declining rewards so that you don’t take from the reward pool.

And it’s not like you are advertising a product or service. You’re not a business. So your argument falls pretty flat from that perspective.

06.01.2020 23:55

Why is it that by advertising I forfeit the right to be rewarded for the work done in researching and writing ? By virtue of what logic ? Where else, in what other situation advertising something cancels all right to be compensated for creating that thing?

Also, indeed, I am not a business indeed. But I happen to think that it would be GOOD for steem if real established businesses were to come to steem and start creating content and advertising ... Perhaps you should read the parable of the finger and the moon ...

Because you are taking from others in the process.

As already mentioned, by buying votes you take from the reward pool. Thereby taking what others should have earned through curation and “proof of brain”. Purchasing votes bypasses proof of brain and directs rewards to your content instead.

Whether or not advertisers come to this platform is irrelevant in this discussion.

I have read your post in detail and I find it interesting to contribute, that if bitcoin and ethereum remain solid, they should also invest in appropriate technology that allows them to process a greater number of operations per minute. Or maybe they favor the system to be slow? In another order of ideas, related to the topics that you cover in the publication, I have read some info about an organization called FATF, which is exercising actions in certain countries trying to intervene mining generated by bitcoin, which is known , which serves as covert support for terrorism and drug trafficking. As well as certain bitcoin machine owners to do mining outside the law by obtaining money laundering and without any legal support.

Well, friend, I hope you liked my opinion,
Bye

C'est une bataille idéologique - il ya une majorité de baleines qui voudraient voir disparaitre tout mécanisme de distribution de votes qui ne procède pas d'une lecture et d'une analyse par un humain de l'article en question (le fameux "Proof of Brain").

C'est tout à fait louable et désirable en théorie mais il se trouve que je suis né et j'ai grandi dans un pays communiste et j'ai compris que les idées "tout à fait louables et désirables en théorie" ne marchent pas très souvent ...

Le communisme aussi, sur le papier, est louable et désirable: "à chacun selon ses besoins, de chacun selon ses possibilités", c'est admirable comme slogan, difficile de ne pas souscrire ... En pratique, ça ne marche juste pas car ça présuppose un "nouvel homme" qui est correct et altruiste. Ce nouvel homme, l'humanité l'appelle de ses voeux, mais on ne peux pas construire un système en imaginant que les hommes sont réellement comme cela ... Ca finit en tragédie ...

Resteemed.

You and I think very alike. I have been theorizing since before Bitcoin, that we need to incentivize the value of doing the right thing.

Currently the monetary system seems to be incentivizing selfishness, destruction of the environment, and doing the right thing always costs us money. To me it just seems we just had no way to measure the true value that our heart senses, but now with everything being connected through the internet it's becoming very possible.

We could even look at things like the USA's NSA data gathering as double edged sword for thd positive. Once it's no longer in the hands of the centralized power hungry few, we can use the technology to gather data for a good purpose. If we do this right we can make people rich for doing things that benefit the world, incentivize companies to be sustainable, and making sure our happiness is valued above the desire of our employers to profit off our labor.

Also I think the environment needs to be treated like a bank account with an overdraft. Currently the environment is hurting, so we clearly have a negative "balance" with the environment. Thus if we expect to be able to take resources, we have to give more to the environment than we take. That way old unsustainable practices would become expensive, sustainable practices cheap, and the only way to get a tax break would be through helping rebuild the environment we've damaged.

@sorin.cristescu Congrats for the fact that you work to innovate the world. The world needs more people who can see beyond rules. The question is:

  • What are we innovating?

It's pretty tempting to be charmed by the surface level of reality, because believing that what happens is normal is easier than conceiving that there is something wrong with the world.

  • Do you like movies?

In the movie the Matrix there are

  • Agents who fight to protect the matrix and
  • People who want to dissolve it.

The movie the Matrix is a Documentary. At least from my perspective.

  • How about we have a sneak peek in the rabbit hole?
  • How about we explore our Tough game called Reality, between us and evil?

Buckle your seatbelt my friend, because the Matrix is going Bye-Bye.
The Matrix is the Control system. That system is our enemy.

  • Why do we live in a Control system?
  • Did you know that everything is done through People?

First: for your safety and those around you here’s a useful tip:

  • Warning! The following content is about Evolution!
  • Warning! My vision might be too High for your mentality!
  • Warning! Responsibility is Toxic for ignorance!
  • Warning! Evolution is a threat for the Matrix!
  • Warning! Change is Dangerous for inertia!
  • Warning! Continue reading at own Risk!
  • Warning! Mind explosion Hazard!

Do you like riddles? How about this:

  • Is there a Difference between us and animals?
  • Does anyone know what are the needs that Differentiate us from animals?

Survival and reproduction are needs common with animals.

Free people can't be controlled. As long as we live in a control system we don't evolve, rather we experience the illusion of improvement: we self-improve within the control system, we Clown around.

We live in a Control system:

  • Because we Sell necessities,
  • Because we do Not have enough necessities,
  • Because we use the resources of the planet for Poison and other stuff that are Not necessities,
  • Because People create Demand for Poison through their Everyday Choices
  • Because their Destructive, Frail, Fake nature chooses for them
  • Because they're NOT aware.

In case You wonder why there is hunger, You can take a look in the Mirror.
Actually frail people can't accept that there is something wrong with them. No problem! Let me present you the most reliable friend: Denial. It's always beside you. It won't let you down.

Our Evolution needs might Differentiate us from animals.

  • Is there at least one person on this planet who's able to talk about our evolution needs or are animal needs the highest level of intelligence?
  • How can we meet our Evolution needs as long as we're busy Selling necessities?

Most are not aware of the Basics. The good news is that the Basics are so Simple that they can be summarized in 1 phrase:

  • the control system NO longer exists when there is NO demand for it.

Our problem is that

  • Almost nobody talks about the our problem and
  • Even less people talk about the cause of our problem.

This might happen because

  • Avoiding our problem is easier than solving our problem, this happens because
  • Working on the cause implies change and
  • Remaining in inertia is easier than change.
  • Do you know what's the Madness law?

Remaining the Same and expecting Different results.

  • What’s the result of the fact that people keep working hard on the surface level?

People live under the impression that they evolve when in fact they create better forms of the same prison.
People continue avoiding the cause and the cause continue growing.
The cause is UNconsciousness.

  • As long as people are UNconscious their frail nature chooses what's Easy.
  • When people are Aware, they have freedom of Choice and they can choose what's Right.
  • Who wants to be a slave?
  • Nobody, so
  • Why do people create our own enslavement?

People do what they know. People buy and sell destruction because they don't know any better. All they know is destruction. When it comes to wake people up, people become storytellers, they say:

We can't because...

And they use their mind to create a story, to avoid this subject because

  • Being passive about the fact that people are unconscious is easier than waking people up.
  • Blissful ignorance is easier than responsibility.

People believe they are awesome, some people even Brag about the fact that they have a Warrior spirit and when it comes to overcome our challenge,

  • What do they do?
  • They Wet themselves out of fear.
  • What happened with the Glorified Warrior spirit?
  • It went down the drain...

Why am I writing this?
I don't know. So far the pattern is ignorance.

  • Why? What happened, with humankind?

The irony is that people who appear to have a strong mentality:

  • Are more or less creative in ignoring the cause.
  • Are heavyweight champions at creating hocus pocus wizard stories.
  • Never talk about reality, about the fact that the cause of our enslavement is our vices.

When we choose what's easy (ignoring our challenge), we're too frail to choose what's right (overcoming our challenge).

  • Tell me, How strong is a frail mentality?
  • I don't know, and I don't think it’s strong enough.

One reply from a person who's considered a god sounds like this:

I don't believe in extremes. I believe you should position yourself in the middle of the spectrum... blah, blah hocus pocus blah.

Welcome to: nobody cares, aka Planet Earth: the planet where people care more about money than about people. This might happen because the game happens at the level of awareness: as long as people are UNconscious, their frail nature is gonna use their intellect to create a wizard story.

  • How else can they Justify their frailty?

People just can't have a conversation about reality.
Where is the great mentality in that?

At least snowflakes melt at a high temperature. People suffer meltdown regardless of the temperature. To cause a meltdown, it's enough to talk about Reality. People can't see beyond the control system, beyond money. In case you wonder what is the god of most people, you can look in your wallet.

  • How can we reach the Next level as long as people can't conceive it in their mind?

Our game is pretty simple: Time is short. We're on the way to Lose our game because so far we ignored our challenge.
We doN'T have time to Clown around. Do you want to make a deal?
How about this: we can experience the epic feeling of being a

  • Loser, when we Lose our game with our ignorance, or
  • Winner, after we Win our game with our responsibility.

Time's up.

  • What's gonna be?

Did you know that our government earns its money from us?

  • What do we get for the money we give to our government?
  • Nothing.

After 12 years of education system people go to the store to buy Poison because

  • They have zero education about our basic need of nutrition and
  • They are too Frail to care about their health.

You heard the word Tough. Now you might know what it means. The fact that children Waste 12 years of their life might be an example of a Tough scenario.

  • Why does our government include zero education in the education system?

Our government does NOT include education in the education system because UNeducated people are easier to… Control and when it comes to Dissolve the control system:

  • What do people do?

They are so hopeLessly Dependent on the control system that they Fight to Protect it.

  • How can we evolve as long as children are turned into snowflakes?

Nobody talks about the fact that the government is a puppet that executes the orders from the organization, because ignorance is easier than responsibility. Every month we pay those people to work Against us. How ridiculous is that!

My guess is that there is NO fault. The education system conditions us to be beneficial for Control: Knowledge is kept Hidden and we receive Lies beneficial for control (the Wrong map). People are awesome. The problem is that as long as they have the Wrong map, they invest their Greatness, their Positive intentions in the Wrong direction, so the solution is within our reach because we have the Power to Create educational content - through which we can wake people up and we can combine the 2 solutions:

  • We can share the Basics (the Right map) and
  • We can make a living by selling Necessities,

By doing so we might have a chance to reach the Next level of our game where there is a superabundance of Necessities, at this point there is NO enslavement, and we can focus on Evolution. How simple is that!

People focus on people who control us (what we can NOT influence), then they:

  • Watch meaningLess content -they add 1 more brick in the control system and
  • Go to the store to buy poison -they add another brick in the control system.

How can we be effective as long as we focus on what we can NOT influence?

  • Wouldn't we be more effective when we focus on what we CAN influence,

such us:

  • Our power to create meaningFul, educational content,
  • Our power to create demand for Necessities?

In the Next level of our game we have greater power.

  • How can we be in the Next level of our game where we have greater power as long as we're NOT responsible for the power we have at our current level?
  • Did you know that the control system is NOT mandatory?

Evil exists as a challenge.

  • Isn't this the whole Point of our game: to experience Epic Evolution by Overcoming our Epic Challenge?

Evolution is NOT automatic.

  • Isn't Evolution the reward for choosing what's Right over what's Easy?

We have a challenge. The sooner we overcome it, the sooner we can enjoy the Next level. When we ignore our challenge, it means we're too frail to face it.

  • Why do we live:
  • To use our life as an opportunity to become more frail or
  • To use our life as an opportunity to become more responsible?

When we use our life as an opportunity to become more frail, then

  • Why do we live?

Our world needs:

  • Neither stories (excuses), nor snowflakes.
  • Humans.

I was unaware of these facts. Only recently I connected some dots. There are so Many levels Beyond this one and people are Not aware of this. People are Misled. This is Not right. I believe people deserve to have to have Clarity, the Full map. That's why I feel responsible to share the Right map.
There are many stuff to be said about Winning Our game. That's exactly why I created an educational show: to share my perspective about it.
our game is NOT mine, our game is Ours, so:

  • What's Your opinion about it?

Our game doesn't last forever: the latest Regulations for content creators are only the beginning, soon enough, we end up in a world of total Control, of Censorship (which is Already a reality to a major extent), in a point of NO return, in which we can NO longer work for winning our game, so the question is:

  • How can we wake people up in Good time?

TLDR
Reads like ranting. Control is not inherently bad. Fighting "control", fighting against "the system" is not necessarily good. You are too young, methinks

It's understandable that you didn't have enough time to read my comment. Life can get busy. It's interesting that you had enough time to Protect the precious control system. Anyway:

  • What can we say about ourselves when we’re not even willing to Read anything before we comment?

What happened with the idea of:

Whoever chases rainbows has first to look for storms.

This is an awesome idea I know from the about section of your profile. You're right: We can experience an epic feeling after we Overcome a challenge; the bigger the challenge the bigger the Thrill.

  • Is the control system a too big Storm (challenge) for you?

In your article you say:

I believe this is the type of project Europe and the world need more of: designing novel systems with the ability to spark new, mutually-beneficial collaborations.

In the above comment you say:

Fighting "control", fighting against "the system" is not necessarily good.

So

  • What are you suggesting: creating New forms of the Control system?
  • What's up with all the hype about creating New systems?
  • What is the use of all those new systems as long as they are different forms of the Same Control?
  • Why can't people see beyond control?

    They are so hopeLessly Dependent on the control system that they Fight to Protect it.

As long as people are UNaware their frail nature is gonna choose what's Easy: Conforming with our challenge.
When people are aware of the basics they can be beneficial for our initial goal of evolution, they can choose what's Right: overcoming our challenge.
Our planet is not mine, our planet is Ours so:
What's your opinion about overcoming our challenge?

  • How can we wake people up in Good time?

Most people need and relish control. Life is so complicated! Do not imagine that because you find the Control System too oppressing it is also the opinion of the majority. Quite the contrary.

I am suggesting Control systems are very necessary. They have a nasty tendency though to spoil after a while, to turn bad. When that happens, some people resent their bad Control system so much, they want to destroy it and never allow any other control system again. That is a childish and very unwise reaction.

Control systems are needed and can produce very powerful, desirable results.

A bit like a sharp knife. But if you use a good knife a lot, you might accidentally cut yourself.

Rejecting all control systems because the current one has turned bad is like destroying all knifes and vowing to never let a knife be produced because you hurt yourself with one.

Control systems need to be continuously monitored for signs of deterioration and need to be fixed and improved. I think blockchain technology is a tool for building such monitoring devices that could keep a Control System in check for longer, allowing us to derive its benefits while mitigating the risks

Seriously? Following the herd? When our mentality is a herd mentality then

  • What is our life: a life of the herd?
  • How can we be leaders as long as we follow the herd?

90% of the products that are labeled as food are NOT food.

  • Why?

Because people create demand for these stuff, because after 12 years of education system

  • we have NO education about our basic need of nutrition,
  • we're too frail to care about our health.

This happens because:

  • UNeducated people are easier to… control.
  • Conscious people are not profitable because they don't buy crypto poison and other UNnecessary stuff that we can find on the exalted blockchain.
  • UNconscious people are in their interest because UNconscious people are profitable.

How wise are we when we follow a herd of UNeducated people?
I wonder how much time people need to realize that there is NO happy end for us as long as we perpetuate interest for control.

  • Do you really believe people who control us are interested in peace?

The organization (people who control us) is more than happy about WW3. This war that is already a reality is part of their interest. After this war there are gonna be less people on this planet. This is exactly what they want:

  • Less people are easier to… control.

They will be more than happy when only 5% of the current population exists on our planet.
People died in past wars, people die and people will die in our current war (their target is about 95% of us), all because of the much protected interest for control.
People go to war because they obey, they execute the orders from the control system, because they do NOT have power to choose, because they are NOT aware.
When people are aware they have the power to choose their response. We have the power to wake people up and when it comes to be responsible for our power,

  • What do people do?

They create some hocus pocus wizard story:

I am suggesting Control systems are very necessary.

blah blah hocus pocus blah.
How else can they avoid responsibility?
How childish is that!
Ignoring the cause is easier than waking people up.
When we choose what's easy (ignorance), we're too fragile to choose what's right (responsibility).
Why do we live:

  • To use our life as an opportunity to become more fragile or
  • To use our life as an opportunity to become more responsible, to evolve?

When we use our life as an opportunity to become more fragile then,

  • Why do we live?

Appreciated @sorin.cristescu.

I find your approach about "the little need for Law" on blockchain platforms very valuable.

In blockchain the law is people. It is precisely the p2p interaction that has allowed the democratization of the financial liberation of the masses. The liberating character of blockchain lies in its independence from traditional financial systems and private banking.

Just thinking that a SWIFT transfer can take up to five days to complete and that a blockchain transaction only takes seconds, has shaken governments that remain supported by financial structures based on Fiat.
There are already several nations that have embarked on their path towards the adoption of blockchain, although behind this there is not precisely "liberating ideals."

Bitcoin and Ethereum are pioneering messes in this matter, but there are currently thousands of blockchain that adopted this path. I agree with you that most existing platforms are only dedicated to "link blocks" and not to foster the true liberating potential of "linking people".

It was very nice for me to read your post. Thanks for sharing.

Your Friend, Juan.

My point is that in between "fully liberating" blockchain applications (such as "p2p electronic cash" - bitcoin) on one hand and "chaining blocks but fully controlled" blockchain applications, there is a lot of value in applications that leverage blockchain technology in a "partly controlled, partly liberated" setting ...

I feel that you are considering a "hybrid" scenario. This made me think of a project I studied recently.

Currently there are many blockchains, but they all act "isolated", there is no interoperability.

There are several projects that are making interoperability between blockchains real. But there is one that goes beyond and allows interlocking permissionless blockchains with private blockchains. In fact, it also allows interoperability between blockchain - private network, raising the possibility of a hyperconnected future that allows value transactions.

You can know a little more in my post.
