We live in wondrous and exciting times, on the edge of a shift no less significant than the personal computing revolution of the 1980s and 90s. The growth and development of open source, purpose-built networks on blockchain protocols creates an unprecedented opportunity to blend theory with practice, and realize whole socio-technical ecosystems from the ground up.

To recap the important points from the previous part of this series:

  • Blockchain protocols will become as central to daily life as the semiconductor
  • The networks built on those protocols provide an opportunity to design systems like credit that took centuries to evolve in organic…
