"I have been skeptical about Turing complete on chain computation for a long time. Many early proponents took the position that there is no issue because a mechanism such as Ethereum’s gas limits how long a computation can run."
"Decentralization is one of, if not the most, discussed features of the crypto tech stack. In a decentralized system, no single body controls the system. We have most certainly not reached the era fully decentralized systems, but that is what most of the world-class technologists working in the crypto sector are focused on getting us to and I believe we will get there in the not too distant future."
"In this post we will explore a concept that plays a foundational role in ensuring information and computer security — Public Key Cryptography. Since this fascinating idea is the heart of blockchain technology, we will dive into its history, grasp how it works and examine the practical applications in the context of blockchains."
"A personal journey towards decentralized organizations"
"Token generation & distribution has always been a top concern for anyone seeking to establish truly decentralized networks. We’ve seen many methods attempted, but it remains quite challenging to distribute tokens fairly to real users (not speculators) while avoiding concentration of wealth."
