Too Long; Didn't Read
This is the first of a series of commentaries on the world of crypto, blockchains and distributed ledgers. My intention is to take a primarily critical look at the history, theories, technology, and milieu. As someone who has been an active participant in the space who started out very enamored of the technical and practical use cases, I have now come to view much of what goes on very negatively. The world does seem to divide between those who expect crypto to go away and those who believe it is the 2nd coming of everything.
