Someone linked me to this illuminating article by a cryptographer peering into the world of cryptocurrency & NFTs.

My takeaways:

· The appeal of blockchain tech is decentralization, but the actual infrastructure for a lot of this stuff is much more centralized than you'd think.

· Most people don't have the patience for decentralization, and it's hard to fault them. That doesn't mean we have to give up on it, but we should focus on decentralizing the right things.
