    Blockchains dont solve the oracle problem. Any reputation/stake based method of determining truth will eventually be gamed or shown to be inaccurate

      It is a remix; no need for you to watch then. I watch these to reinforce viewpoints/lessons from past interviews. Also as a recent subscriber it is a way to preview past interviews I may want to watch.

    Not sure why so many thumbs down. This presentation tickles the mind on the ideas and challenges of crypto & blockchain. I use lots of reminders and tickle files to stay focused and minimize "what am I forgetting" thoughts. I'm just saying. Thx.
