Holo Holochain vs Blockchain So Holochain has a bunch of advantages over blockchain, for one thing there’s no bottlenecks at all because you are writing directly to your own local source chain and sharing to a distributed hash table which is a an eventual consistency approach so there’s no bottlenecks and being able to do the transaction and share the information. The other thing is really that there’s two core underlying fallacies that most distributed computing technologies are built on including blockchain. One is that data has some kind of independent existence from that’s separate from where it was authored. The other is that universal time is possible, and desirable and so you have blockchain as a strategy to solve these problems to manage some universal list of tokens in some universal sequence and they pretend they manage consensus about this but what they basically do is have a lottery to have a particular vantage point a particular viewpoint win. The word consensus really isn’t connected to any human use of the word consensus. And it takes massive processing power, and then there’s strategies for randomizing who gets to commit the next block [those] take even more processing power and electricity and It what what happens in Holochain is that you can build private applications, manage who participates, be able to have them scale to the size of Twitter or Facebook, you know like massive scale, which things just on blockchain can’t operate that way yet, and probably never will.
