In years to come they'll talk about trains; flight; cars; QM; rockets; computers; the internet. Then, blockchain. Please, give it some thought.


Well, it could be that or it could be that people said what they had to say in some of the far more informative discussions that have taken place here over the last decade.

It takes a pretty extreme form of conceit to think that you finding interest in something a decade after the fact must mean it's revolutionary, and pasting a bunch of what is essentially advertising copy does little to reinforce the view that your opinion means terribly much.

There have been much more informative links provided by others as to the technical limitations of block chain. E.g. http://www.rationalskepticism.org/post2 ... l#p2622342

Exactly why some eejit thinks block chain has something to do with Catalonian independence is of much less interest. The problems there are with what the people think, what constitutes a democratic mandate, who the civil authorities like police respond to and so on. The reason they aren't independent has little to do with the technological capability to handle data or taxes. As it stands, with or without block chain, Catalonians who don't pay their Spanish taxes would find themselves up in court.
