  1. The thing you did not mention about the fallacy of permissioned blockchain is that "chaining blocks" (creating blockchain) WITHOUT consuming resources (In the case of PoW, this resource is electricity) does NOT make sense, as re-calculating all hash values does NOT have any considerable cost and it takes few seconds! So, in a permissioned blockchain network (such as Hyperledger whose consensus mechanism is PBFT) WHY DO WE NEED TO CHAIN THE BLOCKS (creating blockchain) ?! What does really mean chaining blocks without consuming resource/energy? , where re-calculating all hash values and as a result replacing all blocks can be done EASILY and RAPIDLY. The thing can make transactions history immutable in Bitcoin, is a PoW with ENOUGH difficulty. Otherwise, only chaining blocks based on a PBFT consensus is a FALLACY and deception, and nothing else …

  2. Hi Andreas. I was curious as to what you think of IOTEX Random Delegated Proof of Stake Protocol (RDPOS) ?

  3. I have to disagree with this "Selfish approach", because "everyone acting purely in their own self-interest" only works until one of those selfish people gets hold of 51% computational power on the system (51% attack). And that's when all of the other selfish folks gather around and hope that this selfish entity with 51% control decides not to act solely in their self interest.

  4.

I request you to make a video about situation in India… Crypto currency community is facing a serious threat , please share your opinion ????

  5. If 100% of the miners were corrupted surely they could just agree to validate their changes so could do whatever they want?

  6. Bitcoin will rise to become synonymous with blockchain same as TCPIP came to be synonymous with the internet. Only room for 1 POW store of value chain. Other edge cases like dApps may support a few variants of POS, but their addressable market pales in comparison to store of value.

  7. So Andre, Does that mean we'll still have a choice of where to invest though?…centralized vs. de-centralized block chains, coins & tokens? I'm thinking no one can stop the de-centralized system, but that a centralized system will exist as well. Am I wrong here?

  8. Apparently EOS can take all your funds if your wallet is inactive for 3 years. That means 1. Don't go to prison. 2. Don't get into a coma!
    And if you think they're bluffing TRYBE token reached into people's wallets and took back tokens that they misallocated. Why decentralise?

  9. Funny Enuf is that also authentication <> authorization ?
