I’m a life long tech enthusiast, and I’ve worked in the tech industry for over a decade. I’m a massive #blockchain / #crypto / #web3 / #decentralisation cynic and skeptic. Please, convince me otherwise. A thread… 1/
Full disclosure: I’m a #crypto investor. Because right now I believe in the positive effect of non-cynics on artificially inflating the value of something, and the effect that has on getting other people to jump on the bandwagon. Not because I believe in the tech itself. 2/
Also, I may be wrong. #Blockchain certainly isn’t going away, I just don’t think it’s going to take off and replace everything, or anything much really.
There’s likely aspects I don’t fully understand, or assumptions that may be wrong. If I’ve made mistakes, then let me know! 3/

⚖️ THREAD | Qu'est que le trilemme des #blockchains ?

Créé par @VitalikButerin, ce trilemme met en évidence qu'il serait impossible qu'une blockchain soit sécurisée, décentralisée et scalable en même temps et au maximum. Il faudrait en théorie sacrifier une des trois options. Image
De cette manière, la "blockchain idéale" devra résoudre ce trilemme, c'est à dire qu'elle devra compléter à leur maximum chacun de ces trois paramètres.

Sécurité, scalabilité et #décentralisation.
🔒 Sécurité
Une #blockchain sécurisée parvient à empêcher tout type d'attaque : 51%, Sybil, collusion, Penny Spent...
Les transactions doivent être infalsifiables, le réseau résilient.

L'exemple le plus connu est #bitcoin.

#Primer on #Ethiopian Politics

#Unitarist Vs #Federlaist

- Has little to do with level of #decentralisation of power ordinarily associated with these notions

A critical mass of Ethiopians support #federalism-incl most, if not all, forces within ruling party - incl Abiy - 1
For #ethnonationalists, I believe, any politics based on individual #equality (citizenship or republican politics) is #Unitarist - so #Nigeria, #Kenya (which ban ethnic parties), #Germany and #UnitedStates are Unitary, regardless of their robust federal/devolved structures - 2
What ethnonatioanlists consider #federalist is actually politics based on #ethnicity - (which goes beyond ethnic federalism) - much like Arend Lijphart's prototypical #consociational system - so soemthing like #Belgium and #BosniaHerzegovina, but for 80+ ethnic groups – 3

📢Oyé Oyé !

L'heure de la réunification est venue !

Je vous présente 👉infoVF.com

Un système qui agrège les vidéos de chaines différentes ET issu de plateformes vidéo différentes (Rumble, LBRY, YouTube), tout ça au sein d'une même interface.

#libertedexpression
Lorsque l'une de ces chaines publie une nouvelle vidéo, elle se retrouve alors immédiatement sur infoVF car tout est automatisé, et c'est là la grande force d'infoVF.

Il y a toute les vidéos qui ont été censurées par YouTube et le site contient déjà plus de 2200 vidéos 😁
Voici les chaines qui pour le moment composent infoVF : infovf.com/channels

Cette page est aussi un annuaire vous permettant de tous nous retrouver sur les réseaux sociaux, une vue d'ensemble qui nous permet de constater que nous sommes déjà nombreux à utiliser Gab !

#Bitcoin is bigger than all the companies that try to capitalise on its #blockchain #technology.

#Bitcoin + #IoT + #DeepLearning will transform the global political & financial system without permission.

#blockchain #LightningNetwork #fintech #blockchain #disruptiveinnovation
#Decentralisation will take time.

#Bitcoin is decentralised although still attached to a centralised world.

⚠️ This is the alpha.
⚠️ #LightningNetwork is the beta.
If you want to change society you need to change the social paradigm, or offer an incentive greater than money to discourage greed. #bitcoin #LightningNetwork ⚡️

Thread (1/7): @TheEconomist published a Special Report Titled "Fixing the #Internet", which relied on #Centralisation as its core lens

Huge victory for a technical community that has spent decade explaining how the architecture & ethos of the internet are under attack.

6 arts!
2. "But like Sir Tim, many people have recently become more critical of it (...) At the heart of their disenchantment, this special report will argue, is that the internet has become much more “centralised” than it was even ten years ago."

3. #Decentralisation is ultimately a question of #democracy. As digital technology penetrates society ever more deeply & the two become ever more intertwined, the rules of the former will increasingly govern the latter" economist.com/special-report…
