Agreed. It is always tricky to deal with this kind of intentional deception, or unintentional self-deception, that involves a conscious (or subconscious) ulterior motive. The main issue is Eric’s original premise was hyperbolic and, moreover, flat-out wrong — i.e. IOTA is not “centralized” if Coordinator can be disabled at any time and one can still use the network without it. The early stage of a new network is not a novel concept, hence the reason why IOTA is in a training wheels phase. This was always acknowledged, e.g. IOTA is noted to become “production ready” by end of 2017, while current release is more about having a reasonably mature protocol (though not yet ready to be standardized, as improvements continue to be made — e.g. today a partnership with a Russian university was announced, where its supercomputing cluster will be utilized to do further research on IOTA’s network, in the quest towards standardizing the protocol).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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