Uitleg over bitcoin en ethereum. To summarize, in just the last few years the world has invented a way to create software services that have no central operator. These services are called decentralized applications and they are enabled with crypto assets that incentivize entities on the internet to contribute resources — processing, storage, computing — necessary for the service to function.

Decentralized applications are a new form of organization and a new form of software. A decentralized application is a way to create a service that no single entity operates.”

In fact, on almost every dimension, decentralized services are worse than their centralized counterparts:

  • They are slower
  • They are more expensive
  • They are less scalable
  • They have worse user experiences
  • They have volatile and uncertain governance

The only dimension on which they outperform centralized services is censorship resistance. Censorship resistance means that access to decentralized applications is open and unfettered. Transactions on these services are unstoppable.

Dat betekent dat er wel toezicht georganiseerd kan worden (alle transacties zijn openbaar) maar er zijn geen ondertoezichtstaanden te identificeren en compliance is niet af te dwingen als het niet in de software is ingebouwd.
