📜 Placeholder Erasure thesis
“Erasure solves the problem of bad information online.”
— Joel Monegro, Placeholder
Venture capital firm Placeholder published their Erasure thesis. Joel Monegro breaks down the Erasure protocol into its three core elements (payment, recourse, and track record), and explains how these ingredients have combined to build the foundation for the protocol today.
“It may be that the only way to distinguish good from bad information online comes down to how much value its creator stakes and their track record. That’s the vision of this protocol. And once you understand how it works, and its potential, it’s easy to see how it fits everywhere.”
