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.
