The Subtle Tyranny of Blockchain
Stefan Thomas

TL;DR synopsis in a protocol analogy:

It’s hard to develop an app on TCP/IP or UDP as changing the protocol for my app is next to impossible.

What we need is diversity, and a layered approach gives us this. That’s why I’ve created SMTP/Telnet/DNS/FTP which runs on top. Now we can build diverse apps, free from the tyranny of TCP/IP and UDP, anyone of which is probably doomed because we wont be able to change those protocols easily.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
