Why Blockchain Differs From Traditional Technology Life Cycles

In the wake of the 2018 ICO bubble and with the purported potential of blockchain, many people have drawn parallels to the 2001 bubble. I recently reread Perez’s work to think through if there are any lessons for the world of blockchain, and to understand the parallels and differences between then and now. As Mark Twain may or may not have said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”'

Ethereum is (arguably) doomed to be centralized

"I will preface this blog post by saying that my aim here is to set out and list some suggestive, not definitive, evidence I see of increased centralization in the Ethereum ecosystem. It sets out a hunch, not a mathematical proof. If you disagree with my opinion, that’s your prerogative. If you want to convince me otherwise, go dig up the hard data and prove me wrong."

A Primer on Blockchain Interoperability

"Distributed systems have to make trade-offs to function effectively in an asynchronous environment like the internet — one without a global clock to define the ordering of events. Blockchain-based networks, designed to carry immense value, must also guard against malicious, or byzantine, actors."

Introducing PoB — How to design a more decentralized consensus

"IOST’s consensus algorithm — PoB — includes a more decentralized committee election process than current DPoS systems while still maintaining the scalability benefits and censorship resistance."

The Case for Human-Centric Design in Blockchain

"Technology companies often lose sight of who uses their products. Humans tend to be drawn to nature and things that respond well to them. Blockchain projects need to start dedicating more time towards their users and borrow concepts from the traditional web to solve their needs. Without a human-centric mindset, mass adoption will become increasingly difficult. This is the largest pain-point to date for the blockchain industry to solve."
