I am new to this forum and relatively new to blockchain and related full-consensus technology, but would like to start this thread as I feel it is very relevant. With all the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency hype lately, the general public is beginning to become more aware of this technology. However with it’s inherent complexity most people will have no idea of what is the underlying technology or how it works. With that being said, people will be open for manipulation and propaganda by those who wish to use this technology for more power and control. As a community of people who understand this technology, we must do our best to ensure it is used in a way that actually helps to decentralize POWER, not just decentralize the network.
