if you told me 5 years ago that we were gonna get a decentralized protocol that offers file storage and distributed computation, threatening to break up AWS, had increasing widespread adoption, and is basically a non-neumann architecture that you can actually use and doesn't exist in the real world, and also you get to flex your understanding of tree data structures, i'd be real excited!!
if you told me that the people who are adopting it are so insufferable and toxic to the point where i'd rather learn and use fucking AWS, i wouldn't believe you!
okay well i'd probably believe you, but be real disappointed.
like, there's so much about it that sounds exciting and i can't blame people for being excited by ~Ethereum~ early on. i still think proof-of-stake is coming, but it's not like that'll help the GPU shortage (they'll just move their miners to bitcoin) and it's not like it'll turn all the nft people around
very disappointed by "block chain"
