Re: <nettime> To distribute somethings while keeping others central?

It should be noted that blockchain/bitcoin are inherently fascist - they blindly enforce the majority rule. Plus, this majority is not really the majority, as it is represented by less than ten (9, I think) privately operated minting outfits.

Technology is the message.

What is funny about bitcoin promotion argument though is it is based
on Austrian economists' ideology; complaining about the role of state
in control of money and corruptness that brought: as if it was not the
Wall Street one emerged from very same ideologies that defended
private or liberalized financial and monetary policies and 'autonomous
polity' from the state?!
