    Quotes:

    “Blockchain will revolutionize not just finance but much about the Internet. The key to the revolution is decentralization. Blockchain allows us to return to the free and decentralized roots of the Internet.”

    “For me, the most exciting possible application of blockchain will be a truly decentralized knowledge marketplace. We will finally have the technical means for a fair and open system of rating and characterizing encyclopedia articles. Imagine an ever-expanding, ever-improving collection of the best encyclopedia articles in the world, available free everywhere, rated by many different competing groups. We will finally have the tools to learn from credible sources what the best representations of knowledge are, according to various nationalities, religions, experts, and more. Learning and scholarship will be never be the same again.”
