Great coverage. 24 months should have been enough time to realize Ethereum is a messy teenager room at best being used for virtual currency manipulation. And Bitcoin is a one-trick pony.
You covered the major points well and I want to add the whole “consensus” thing is garbage and unnecessary as well as the “trustless” concept. These are outdated patterns that do not fit into the IoE/Fourth Industrial Revolution paradigm.
The decentralization talk is also libertarian garbage that keeps “consensus” in the discussion and peer-to-peer syncing of ledgers is also 1990s outdated Napster/Bitorrent blathering.
I found this article great because you are being fundemental and objective with the blockchain beyond the hype.
