Too Long; Didn't Read
The decentralised/blockchain community holds independence, freedom, and a lack of hierarchy as a core ideal. However, they are using a flawed method from game theory that will do the opposite of their intentions. Staking is contrary to true free decentralisation rather than fixing it. The top.001% could stake $10 million and lose it having no effect on them whatsoever and 90% of the population would struggle to muster $1000 let alone $1million to join the game. The rich can just profit or decide which system fails and which succeeds on a whim.
