Guy's Take #61 - Blockchains, A Square Peg for Round Holes
There are about a million claims out there as to what blockchains are going to fix, and how NFTs are going to be used to unlock your house, and how DAOs will be used to enforce and decide laws, but what truth is there to this really? And more importantly, does a blockchain really solve these problems? What are the inherent trust issues, and where are the vulnerabilities? Today we dive into this concept and cover many of the most touted "use cases" for blockchain and talk about what could be needed to solve them, and whether blockchain is just a square peg for a round hole.

(swanbitcoin.com/guy) --------------------------------- "We are screwing up in our design of internet protocols by violating the principle of layering. Specifically we are trying to use TCP to do two things: serve as a host level end to end protocol, and to serve as an internet packaging and routing protocol. These two things should be provided in a layered and modular way. I suggest that a new distinct internetwork protocol is needed, and that TCP be used strictly as a host level end to end protocol." – Jon Postel, IEN 2, 1977 Learn more about your ad choices.

Read_681 - The Twitter Files - Part 1 [Matt Taibbi]
“They just freelanced it,” is how one former employee characterized the decision. “Hacking was the excuse, but within a few hours, pretty much everyone realized that wasn’t going to hold. But no one had the guts to reverse it.” - Matt Taibbi Didn't have time to read that whole thread on the censorship of Twitter and the obvious politicization of all of our social networks and big tech platforms? Well I'm happy to dive it. We read Part 1 of The Twitter Files today with a bit of a heated Guy's Take on why all this is happening, and the systemic, rather than the shallow causes of this increasingly dangerous problem.

Read_680 - Green Eggs and Ham, Part 2 [Farrington & Big Al]
"We believe the core of the cultural fissure between crypto and bitcoin comes down to financialization. While the ethos of bitcoin is to definancialize, the ethos of crypto is to financialize. We repeat our characterization of this tendency from above: DeFi engages in arbitrary and automatable combinations of seigniorage, securitization, rehypothecation, and leverage. It is the purest form of financialization ever conceived: the financialization of ... nothing at all." - Allen Farrington, & Anders Larson Part 2 of the epic piece from Big Al and Allen Farrington on the conceptual, technical, and cultural failures of DeFi, and why it is, in fact, neither "decentralized," nor "finance." Another incredible piece for making some sense out of the insanity of crypto, especially in the wake of the FTX fraud. If you haven't yet listened to Part 1, do so before digging into the second half or you may be a little lost... but hey that's just me.
