Top 10 Tweets - Fully Decentralized Public Blockchains
The second generation of the Internet will be fully decentralized and built upon stateful open web protocols, aka public blockchains.
Manuel Polavieja @ManuelPolavieja@tyler The increase of dollar supply is a consequence of its demand. I also think that the debasement narrative is wrong. Bitcoin is demanded because it has objective lower costs of carry than any other alternative, and this is happening in a *low inflation* environment!

DeFi turns all this on its head. It leverages blockchain technology to deliver services with no human intermediation. One example is creating money markets with algorithmically derived interest rates based on supply and demand — rates that traditional banks set by committee. Other DeFi projects include decentralised exchanges that allow users to trade without brokers, and protocols for lending that do not involve loan officers or credit committees. Although these “self-driving banks” are new, they are not small. They are likely to be mainstream before self-driving cars start to fly.
