Twitter: the Night Is Darkest Before the Dawn?

This week we invite you to discuss Vitalik’s statements, have a closer look at the value of blockchain and be surprised by Gwyneth Paltrow

I'm not sure that blockchain 'determines' what we agree on so much as it provides more options for agreement than were previously available via matching & filtering valuable data. Perhaps mechanically 'resolving' a dispute only counts as half an agreement?

  • @GwynethPaltrow: ‘Great piece with @billbarhydt on @goop today’
  • @iamjosephyoung: ‘I've been in crypto since 2013. The only thing I can say with absolute certainty is, when you think you know the short-term trend of the market, you really don't. Crypto never fails to amaze me’
  • @asglidden: ‘The problem with all these 'X on the blockchain' is that you need reliable data. But a blockchain is a mechanism for resolving intersubjective 'truths', not a mechanism for resolving *objective* truths. They determine what we agree on, not what's real.’
  • @zooko: ‘As 'Plasma' Stalls, SNARKs Become New Hope for Scaling Ethereum Now' — http://bit.ly/2AS3bTX via @CoinDesk
