Useful Blockchain patterns
The world of blockchain is full of (apparent) paradoxes!
speculative value surpresses real-life value
most trade is centralized off-chain and not decentralized on-chain
physically very decentralized and redundant computing model, logically 1 shared system
"smart contracts" simply carry out code
Blockchain can help us! Sometimes by using it, more often by making us consciously think about concepts such as value, decentralisation, trust, governance and then not applying them.
