Is crypto really decentralised or is it just slightly better than the current system?
In Episode #273 of 'Musings' Juan and I discuss: a blog post highlighting decentralisation issues, why we have collectively decided that servers are too hard to operate on our own, why this is not a binary issue and is more of a scale, not needing to have every aspect of your life distributed and why we were a bit scattered on this topic.
A big thanks to Bmasi, Dave Jones & Petar the slav for helping to support the show, we couldn't do it without you!
As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
