Repeat after me: blockchain is centralised.

You want to tilt the power dynamics to favour social justice? You don’t do that by making a billion copies of the same database. You do it by ensuring that a billion people can have their own unique databases.

Expend your energy to realise topological decentralisation not global proofs. Sure, it won’t make you a billionaire but if that’s what you want, what the fuck you reading my feed for?

@aral i want to be a "bill"ionnaire. that way "bills" are no worry. some politician said recently that 70% of outstanding bills are owed by 1% of world's wealthiest or such. financially challenged cannot owe.

@aral @nergal Bills aren't a problem at least for hundredthousandaires like myself and you can reach that point on a single salary without having to extract any rent from anyone or speculate against other people.

@hypolite wall street and stock markets speculation? that is gambling. it is all bets. "i bet this will be worthless||worthmore in a second". i do not see why market speculation affects capital and production. wall street crashed at least thrice in my score and 3/4 years of existence. @aral

@hypolite @aral @nergal Stocks, futures, real estate and VC funding all are speculative markets and integral parts of capital management options. They aren't gambling because gambling has an insured profit margin built in the system. Speculative markets aren't completely random either, but they definitely are exploitative.
