  3. Trying to make sense of India.
  4. “Blockchains are NOT about cutting computational costs (at least relative to centralized servers). Blockchains are about incurring a sacrifice in the form of INCREASED computational costs to achieve a *decrease* in *social costs*.” It is worth your while to read this tweetstorm.
