It’s just after midnight and I’m sitting with a couple of the smartest guys I’ve ever met. I just met Billy an hour ago and with Trevor we’ve already been through a full network of rabbit holes around distributed services, distributed economies, and arbitrage opportunities at scale.
This moment is straight out of a Neal Stephenson novel.
They’re in San Francisco to present a hackathon project to the leaders of the crypto world. I’m here to be a good brother.
I know that the “real world” still holds a lot of cynicism about the blockchain, but I’m looking forward to the day when the stuff that makes blockchain tough (keys, extensions, multiple nets) is fully baked into the infrastructure of every app. Users should be able to get the many advantages that blockchain offers without needing to consult a local university professor.
Personally, I’m excited about blockchain because it solves a problem that represents the last link in a long chain of problems that I’ve been working on for the better part of a decade: chain of ownership / usage. The best universe we’ve been dreaming of is here.
