Alpha Capital claims that got "hacked" and lost 90% of all investors funds

>For example, if I IP whitelist the specific hosts who have access, I virtually eliminate even the access points where people could remotely hack into such a system. Lol. You're still arguing for a legacy tech stack. You're not able to accept what I'm telling you - I don't need the firewalls, the antivirus, the FTP site. I don't need you. ICP is **a more secure solution**. Who the hell cares if there is a login screen shown? Nobody is getting into the site. You have to hide the login screen **because it is a less secure technology** than ICP. The current tech stack is insecure by default. >Obviously you lack the technical expertise What tech expertise have you shown exactly? You know how to secure an FTP site? You're a dinosaur and are being replaced by better tech. Better go make sure your anti virus is up to date grandpa. Lol.

> Look you're not going to sit here and pretend FTP is as secure as the credentials created when you're using ICP which is developed by some of the top cryptographers in the world. Please seriously - this is not an argument. This is a perfect example of "Begging the question" fallacy, as well as an "Appeal to authority".. both are dishonest debate tactics. You can't just say, "my cryptologists are better than your cryptologists." Any "top cryptographer" will agree with me, not you. >Your FTP site is nowhere near as secure. If you spent 5 minutes seeing how an internet identity is created you'd know. For all I know you could have your FTP info written on a sticky note. My face is my credentials. You have no idea how secure my site is. In reality, it's significantly more secure than any ICP, because I don't have to make my system open to all. For example, if I IP whitelist the specific hosts who have access, I virtually eliminate even the access points where people could remotely hack into such a system. I think you just don't know as much about this as you think. It doesn't matter what level of encryption is used if 99.9999% of the rest of the Internet will never even be able to see a login prompt. Does ICP do that? Nope. It can't because by design, it has to be open to all. Most people won't even see a door to my system. And that's before we debate about whether my cryptographic tech is better/worse than yours. I can use the exact same crypto algorithms ad ICP if I so choose - and I may be using them already. >For all I know you could have your FTP info written on a sticky note. My face is my credentials.

Ok, so this is how it's going to be? You're just going to make up whatever reality you want and hide behind that? Obviously you lack the technical expertise to have this discussion with me.

You cannot guarantee the infrastructure is "hack proof" - that's the first thing any credible IT guy will admit. There is no such thing as a 100% safe system. So right away, your testimony is suspect. Each and every day, otherwise secure systems are found to contain vulnerabilities. Encryption algorhythms that were thought to be "hack proof" years ago, are now known to be insecure. No respectable security guy would make such a bold statement. 2. You just admitted you use private keys to access your instance. If someone gets custody of that private key, they have your credentials and can access your stuff. So basically what you're describing is any basic cryptographic login system. It's nothing special. You simply assume your credentials won't be known by anybody else and ergo, the system is secure, but that "nirvana fallacy" can also be employed by any other system and the end result is exactly the same. If nobody knows my ftp/ssh password, then the system is "secure" (provided there are no vulnerabilities that neither of us know about, which is item #1 i was talking about). >Nobody can get into the site on ICP. The protocol guarantees it is tamperproof and unstoppable. No changes can be made except by me. Again, the Nirvana Fallacy.

I have to worry about (and pay for) everything I just listed above. AWS is not a good example because of their metered pricing. I have hosting where I pay a flat rate per month for x amount of resources. I'm not charged based on traffic. I suspect ICP uses a more predatory metered system like AWS. >Is that specific enough? And why would I pay more to use your web hosting company and open myself up to the risks? There is no risk in my system, that you also don't have in yours. Saying otherwise is a LIE. You are simply claiming your software has no bugs and is perfect. And that's a stupid thing to say, about any software system. >Do you think I should use your services to host my website instead?

If policies change and you don't like them, you're free to move elsewhere -- same as with any other system, but my system is focused around providing essential services for my clients. Whereas your system is centered around creating some kind of "use case" that will make the developers filthy rich when they dump their tokens. ICP has two competing charters that don't work well together. They can't decide if they're a pump-and-dump crypto token scheme, or an Internet hosting company.

I have three points that I always make: 1. ⁠In general blockchain is a technology development as BROADLY important to economics as FTP protocols in the 70s. It is as important as AI today. 2. ⁠Bitcoin has pretty limited use for payments, because it is restricted by both the high costs and slow speed of transactions., However, that’s not what I use it for. The brilliant mechanism by which it validates itself and grows supply has never been hacked, meaning that the token is pretty reliable and secure. And is not going away - as some predicted. That makes it an excellent reserve asset. 3) Back in 2014 I jumped in with $2000 of my savings with which I was going to buy gold. For many reasons, not the least being its inherently limited supply, Bitcoin seemed to me then as now to be a more perfect reserve asset than gold. Since then I have made it my ultimate reserve. It has surpassed gold and silver by a long shot on my balance sheet. My motto since 2014 has been “I buy Bitcoin - I don’t sell it.” On rare occasions, such as this and other halving seasons, I convert some to cash. But just to buy more when the price dips. NO account or investment I have ever made has been better. And I have been investing for 50 years. Because of Bitcoin my RESERVE fund has done as well as my equity fund that contains the likes of Microsoft, Apple, and Nvidia. No other asset comes close to making me more financially secure than Bitcoin. Happy Halving!

There is no fool like an old fool. I am old almost 70. I have been in Bitcoin since 2014. I use it as a reserve currency. The strategic financial expectation from my reserve is to keep pace with inflation - no yield or profit - just keep pace. Imagine my delight at having arriving at retirement having LISTENED to my son in 2014. Granted, I am in tech so investigating blockchain was as fun for me as playing with COBOL in the 1970s or FTP in the 1980s. But I didn’t see it coming. Not until a millennial pointed it out. The result is my RESERVE has OUTPACED my equity portfolio over the same period. My retirement income has not just kept pace with inflation it has basically doubled. This is why I call anyone born after 1980 the “Savior Generation”.

Bitcoin is a protocol. It is not a apps, service or platforms​. Protocols becomes move slow and become standards that allow apps, service or platforms to move fast. It has been 50 years since TCP/IP protocol was adopted into Arpanet as the standard for robust communication. There is no plan to replace TCP/IP 50 years later. Instead we build layers on top of it like HTTP that is ensentially a framework to scale TCP/IP that enabled the world wide web. Bitcoin has become the standard protocol for value transfer, it has been in production for 15 years and when it comes to protocols it is. We are building on top of Bitcoin today to scale it with lightning and other protocols. There was never really any competition for Bitcoin as the value transfer protocol. The largest contention was an internal war called the blocksize war that resulted in Bitcoin prioritizing decentralization. This was a huge victory as just like TCP/IP HAS to prioritize robustness above speed to remain useful Bitcoin MUST prioritize decentralization. Many of these have been updated over time but none of them have real replacements. FTP : 53 years old​ TCP/IP : 50 years old​ UDP : 44 years old​ SMTP : 44 years old​ DNS : 41 years old​ IMAP : 38 years old​ HTTP : 33 years old​ DHCP : 31 years old​ BitTorrent : 23 years old​ Bitcoin : 15 years old​ To understand this important point you raised you will need to study the difference between apps, service or platforms​ and protocols.

Heres some links for you, understanding the internet and understanding hard money will help fuel your understanding of bitcoin. Get your set of balls, were going in. https://youtu.be/mII9NZ8MMVM?si=dRKI6d2TlgJwZgSf https://youtu.be/rc744Z9IjhY?si=r-ktN1aodSXCJP2F https://youtu.be/15beIVhFqX4?si=LVALcj8uHcf8k9v6 The internet is built of protocols, and that’s exactly what bitcoin is. What is the internet? In·ter·net /ˈin(t)ərˌnet/ noun 1. a global computer network providing a variety of information and communication facilities, consisting of interconnected networks using standardized communication protocols. What is a protocol? a protocol is a set of rules for formatting and processing data. Network protocols are like a common language for computers. The computers within a network may use vastly different software and hardware; however, the use of protocols enables them to communicate with each other regardless. What are the most used protocols for the internet? Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol TCP/IP Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. It is a suite of communication protocols used to interconnect network devices on the internet. TCP/IP is also used as a communications protocol in a private computer network (an intranet or extranet). File Transfer Protocol (FTP) FTP is a client-server protocol, with which a client requests a file and the server supplies it. FTP runs over TCP/IP -- a suite of communications protocols -- and requires a command channel and a data channel to communicate and exchange files, respectively. Clients request files through the command channel and receive access to download, edit and copy the file, among other actions, through the data channel. Internet Protocol (IP) IP functions similarly to a postal service. When users send and receive data from their device, the data gets spliced into packets. Packets are like letters with two IP addresses: one for the sender and one for the recipient. After the packet leaves the sender, it goes to a gateway, like a post office, that directs it in the proper direction. Packets continue to travel through gateways until they reach their destinations. Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) SMTP is the most popular email protocol, is part of the TCP/IP suite and controls how email clients send users' email messages. Email servers use SMTP to send email messages from the client to the email server to the receiving email server. However, SMTP doesn't control how email clients receive messages -- just how clients send messages. Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) HTTP is a file sharing protocol that runs over TCP/IP. But HTTP primarily works over web browsers and is commonly recognizable for most users. When a user enters a website domain and aims to access it, HTTP provides the access. HTTP connects to the domain's server and requests the site's HTML, which is the code that structures and displays the page's design. Ethernet Ethernet is a protocol that allows computers (from servers to laptops) to talk to each other over wired networks that use devices like routers, switches and hubs to direct traffic. Ethernet works seamlessly with wireless protocols, too. other important protocols not mentioned here: DNS DHCP POP3 IPv4 OSPF 802.11 (wifi) Bitcoin Value transfer P2P protocol, decentralized flat network, all clients, no servers. Circumvents the need for banks or intermediaries. “the internet of money”

>I was too young to remember the dot com boom I could remember it took almost a decade for the internet to have any practical use Well, that's wrong. Scientists used it to exchange information since the beginning. HTTP protocol was invented at CERN in switzerland by scientists. People had Usenet and Email in the early years. A few years after the open internet started (mid 90s), me and my classmates used it to download homework and music (from FTP Servers).

I'm not paid by any hardware wallet manufacturer, never have been. I have deployed hardened Linux in large scale security environments for literally decades. The first version of Linux I used, I downloaded from Linus' university FTP server at funet.fi in 1993, on 1.4M floppy disks. I started hardening Linux systems in the late 90s and building commercial bastion hosts for financial services companies in the City of London. And yet, I'd rather use a hardware wallet than spend hundreds of hours building and maintaining a DIY Linux solution because I know what that actually entails. HWs are more complex? Poppycock. Most are about as minimalist as you can get with hardware, firmware, and software without going to an ASIC. Linux is a general purpose kernel and OS that takes a *lot* of work to cutdown to a secure profile. I know because I did that work for years professionally. You are out of your depth. There's nothing wrong with that if you're willing to learn new things. But spreading nonsense to newbies is not cool. Take a seat, please, before you do more damage.

Not really. Ask most folk if they're familiar with FTP, Archie, and Veronica, and you will get blank looks. They were the Internet killer apps of the 1970s. That said . . . **Almost no-one today interacts with the Internet**. Ask about *packet sniffing*l and they will call the cops in you. The *modern* killer apps were in 1996. Netscape used the HTML protocol. The search engine was Alta Vista. Most folk today have never heard of either. But they caused the 'Net to take off, big time. I suggest LN wallets like Phoenix are today's killer apps. Might be before your time, but your kids are gonna love 'em. You know, you might want to think about zooming out, a little.

The internet did not go "mainstream" simply because people went around preaching it in public. It went mainstream gradually when it started to serve people's needs with **actual utility**. Right now, there's two broad categories of utility I see: 1) Investment and trading, and 2) Limited value store and in turn, payment with value store. Internet went mainstream more with actual utility beyond its underlying tech. Email and FTP rest on RFC 1939 and 354 but users don't need to talk abt how great these RFCs are or how TCP/IP is superior to IPX or X.25. Researchers and academics would have their discussion on BBS and UNIX / VAX forums but they didn't go around evangelising to normal folks on the street. Instead, they just build up the underlying tech, coming up with newer and newer applications until someone come along and bridge product with tech. Early web sites were fancy upgrades of BBS. Many basically were ports of BBS from text to html. Then we started having email providers like [postone.com](https://postone.com), [hotmail.com](https://hotmail.com), and directory/search services like Alta Vista and Yahoo!. IRC, ICQ, Instant Messengers came along while Real Audio and then Real Audio, gave voice and video to the internet. Users did not really TALK about the internet, they just used these applications because they provided some kind of utility to them. If crypto users go around talking in public to people about crypto without something more tangible beyond the above two utility categories, we would really sound like Christian evangelist or mormons, preaching for the sake of preaching. Christianity and love God as an end in itself. And it fucking turns people off, both for crypto and Christianity or any religion for that matter. So, we need to keep the "talking" and "preaching" in check, and focus on building tech and applications for devs, and using the applications for users.

If quantum computer breaks private keys, your crypto is the least of your concerns. Banks and other big financial industries use a lot of cryptography such as RSA private keys or ED25519 or ECDSA etc. with their connections. DB connections? SSH RSA private keys, server connections? RSA still. FTP? RSA. BUT! Cryptography is constantly improving. 1024 bit private keys now have 2048, some are even using 4096 and so on which increases the security. &#x200B; Not like you'll understand what I'm saying completely or the rest of people here so I'll just give you an analogy that a teenager will understand. Say we have a person (PersonA) who writes computer viruses and a person (PersonB) who writes antimalware software to scan and clean up systems. As PersonB continuously create scripts and routines and gather data to counter the viruses, PersonA will also continuously create undetected viruses. Progress and will just keep chasing each other indefinitely.

You're absolutely right. To make an analogy to the Internet were still in the protocol phase where if you want to transfer a file you need to know about FTP, server IP addresses, ports, etc. Want email? Set up a server, know what POP3 and IMAP are, etc. The core foundation of the Internet is TCP/IP. Other protocols were built on top of that but it didn't really even start to become very accessible until the world wide web and web browsers were developed. Even then it was pretty cumbersome and had a pretty steep learning curve for a lot of people. Since then we've seen more and more refinements, web browser wars, search engine wars, and more layers that ultimately lead to greater levels of accessibility. Where are we in crypto? I think we're where the Internet was before the world wide web and web browsers. We're at the stage where most people using these systems are developers, professionals, and geeks. Maybe CEXs are like America Online and Prodigy you could login and go 'online' to use Internet-like services but it was not the Internet. It is not convenient yet. But 5 to 10 years from now things might be looking pretty different.

You can’t “accept my branch” without the git server running. What are you even talking about. You can do so locally but then need to push that again and need the authority to do so. You simply downloading a client does not enable you to do so. It also does not affect my branch locally. Show me a single git repository that runs without a git server. That simply doesn’t work. If the server does not grant your local branch push, you can merge and rebase and cherrypick and delete all you want, this will not matter for the repository and for any other client of that repository. There is a CENTRAL POINT which determines whether your local changes are legal for the rest. Even if there are multiple servers, they determine this. Not you. SSH is also not “decentralised”, it’s a shell access that is tunnelled through a SSL encryption. What would a “decentralised shell access” even mean in that context. Is every network application decentralised for you? The big, big difference is that in a centralised application structure you have server-client relationships. In a decentralised application structure you have only client-client relationships. Torrents are decentralised. An FTP is centralised, even if there are multiple servers joint in a net. A SFTP is also centralised as you (at least that…) correctly stated that authentication and encryption does not impact that. My god. This space is doomed.

Also a good point. 13 years is the blink of an eye, really. Lots of protocols lasted 13 years or more before people collectively realized they were shite and we should do better (plaintext FTP or even plaintext HTTP for example).

There’s literally 0 incentive for game developers to allow you to port currency between games. You’re effectively asking them to ruin their business model as a ton of games are FTP or subscription based but rely on in game transactions for revenue. It simply would be a move to the detriment of the participating parties greatly favouring the consumer.

My go to move is talking about protocols people already use. SMTP, FTP, HTTP, IP, TCP, DHCP, which some people have heard of but ignore what they are. Then I explain that they are just a set of rules people agree to and follow to set a standard of communication. I inform them that 100s of others exist that might be better but it doesn't matter because they aren't that much better to convince people to switch or use. Then I add, Bitcoin is another protocol and one day you will be using it whether you know it or not. Why not learn about it now and get in earlier rather than later. Either way things will be built on top of it regardless of what you decide. The only difference is you get rewarded for getting in early.

Bitcoin is a protocol like IMAP, POP3, SMTP, FTP. These protocols due to their network effects are not replaced. Bitcoin is money, and unlike the latest tech gadget, tech fad, or piece of software, Money depends mostly upon network effects, liquidity, stability, acceptance, trust , and security.

TELNET is commonly used by terminal emulation programs that allow you to log into a remote host. However, TELNET can also be used for terminal-to-terminal communication and interprocess communication. TELNET is also used by other protocols (for example, FTP) for establishing a protocol control channel.

The present infrastructure is just… unbelievably clunky. ACH transfers are literally made by plunking a list of transactions into a bucket on a treasury FTP server that gets processed once a week. I’m not an expert on the CBDC but I have a friend who worked on it. My understanding is that it does not run on a blockchain, but it does use a bitcoin-style UTXO ledger to achieve fast, verifiably secure transactions.

All of those things you mention at the top are not actually happening. There are very few properly functioning DAOs. More often than not the members of the DAO do not have the technical understanding to properly write a smart contract and it is rendered worthless. No one is sending remittances in any significant quantities since the odds of the money being lost are so high. To use a remittance you either need to be very technically competent, or use a centralized service that wraps the crypto experience and takes a cut of the money. You are better off using Western Union or a bank. There are very few instances of any of the things you mention because the experience and underlying technology are inferior to existing solutions. With regards to 80’s internet usage it was a thriving highly reliable system used by millions worldwide. We used telnet, ftp, smtp (mail), gopher, usenet (message boards). The population was mostly academic and engineering, but we ran our businesses on the internet. The big breakthrough was HTML and HTTP that allows for user interfaces to be developed. The underlying technology was solid and is in use today pretty much unchanged. There were never discussions of whether the internet would be useful. It was never “one day it will be useful”. It was useful then. I remember visiting open source software repos in Finland over FTP to get code examples for my work. You can still use FTP today.

It wouldn't be earnings from the same place. A FTP earns revenue because they have a monopoly on assets that people are willing to spend fiat currency to attain. If the person could then sell that asset on the open market then the fiat value goes down as it would be advantageous to sell under the game's market value. And if the game gave out that asset for free, it would encourage people to sell it for pennies because it would be pure profit to them, thus trashing the value. That being said, I fully agree with your second paragraph and conclusion.

Github IS a requirement to use Fleek, there is no way around. It makes it no different than deploying to Heroku vs deploying it to your own self hosted server.

I disagree. For the first 2 decades (hell, 3 compared to the past decade) the internet was just as barren, if not more. It was used for one thing, and one thing only - communication of data (HTTP, SMTP & FTP mainly). Guess what, one decade later we not only have a working P2P transactional system at a global scale, but we're also experimenting with things like sats-based streaming. Sometimes it's not about quantity, but more about quality. Quality takes time. No wonder "crypto" broke off and we now have thousands of coins, most of them trying to do everything in one layer, and better. Whereas Bitcoin does one thing, one thing at a time, and does it well. For years, while I liked the concept of Lightning, I was very sceptic - To me it doesn't seem like the best way to do microTXing, and yet it's grown so much I'm thinking it's here to stay because it inherently does work and the pain-points around node-operation and channel-management are getting refined and improved. RGB is on its way too. So you have very few protocols, but with very serious intentions and game plans. And really, that's what we need. We don't need a playground of token-based applications where every startup and their mother has their own token wrapped in buzzword-ridden Bitcoin. We still use SMTP for Email today. Doesn't mean the number of applications related to it didn't spiral. We still use HTTP today. Protocols like GOPHER just didn't make the cut. Yet the way we display and interface with webpages today is not the way webpages were displayed back then.

>Comparing Bitcoin to TCP/IP or any other protocol is intellectually dishonest. Is it though? Is there another globally adopted open source TCP/IP? POP? SMTP? FTP? Again, another comment making me feel like we're MEGA early... Respectfully, y'all don't get Bitcoin yet, I mean, maybe no one does truly, but if we're talking intellectual honesty- I think you're missing some details/history- >Bitcoin, while it was the first, uses blockchain technology. Blockchain is a marketing term created by altcoin marketers \~5-7 years ago... Sure, Bitcoin uses a "chain of blocks" but that term didn't exist until marketers of OTHER projects realized they needed to distance their brands from the FOSS Bitcoin project... It's hard to sell something if you have to advertise it with a competitors name first... >Bitcoin is not the structural backbone of all that is blockchain, you have it backwards. Every single piece of software written based on the Bitcoin code was written with insider knowledge/understanding of Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the structural backbone of an internet of money, in the same way that SMTP/POP is for an internet of ideas in the same way that TCP/IP is structural for all the above... Show me the alternative to TCP - here's a top google result for you: [https://www.quora.com/Is-there-an-alternative-to-the-TCP-IP-model-that-does-not-utilize-the-Internet-Protocol-IPv4-6](https://www.quora.com/Is-there-an-alternative-to-the-TCP-IP-model-that-does-not-utilize-the-Internet-Protocol-IPv4-6) Look at that history and you'll see why I think this way of Bitcoin - Once these technologies (in a way, discoveries) were on the table- their core principals/code didn't leave us. From the start, those alternative projects intended to compete with Bitcoin, as "better gold", with VC backing, CEOs, value propositions, more centralized ownership / control... etc >Before you think I'm a shill, I bought at 38, I bought at 31, I bought at 29, I bought at 28. I own bitcoin, and I continue to buy it. But throwing out false comparisons does nobody any favors.

Replace the word bitcoin with blockchain and you may have an argument here. Comparing Bitcoin to TCP/IP or any other protocol is intellectually dishonest. Bitcoin, while it was the first, uses blockchain technology. Just like other pieces of software use TCP/IP, FTP, Telnet, SSH, or POP3. Those are the structural backbones of the software. Bitcoin is not the structural backbone of all that is blockchain, you have it backwards. Before you think I'm a shill, I bought at 38, I bought at 31, I bought at 29, I bought at 28.

It's a different network, but it's open just like bitcoin and many people run lightning network on their bitcoin nodes. There's a push in the public narrative (Twitter, YouTube, blogs) to consider lightning to be part of bitcoin, and that's really like saying HTTP is part of the internet, and it's not the only interface, you can use sockets, FTP, SSH, all over the internet too. With bitcoin, we have coin swaps, coin joins, multisig vaults, but lighting seems to have the best guarantees and least centralisation of them all. Http can also be used within an intranet, just like lightning can be used on top of other shit coins.

Iirc it was because of UIEGA - bascially the sites were operating illegally but it had been (perhaps optimistically perhaps cynically) considered a grey area by the companies that allowed US players. The major sites all claimed to have player funds segregated, FTP, UB/AP ended up not actually having done this while PS had (or at least, had the funds to pay).. as part of their deal with the US government PS bought FTP and agreed to pay player balances which had been locked up.

While I think this is valid question that average Joe can ask, the average Joe doesn't have a clue on how Internet works, how it started, why we have those protocols (HTTP, TCP/IP, Ethernet/FTP and etc. ). What Joe cares about is TikTok, Youtube, Facebook ant etc. So, I think crypto is start of new field, some may call it Money 2.0 (Web 3.0). And as usual there are many people/companies trying to become champions on this new field. And of course ton of scam. That is how it works with people, this is how we do it. :-) I guess it will be reshaped constantly and some sort of solutions will be developed so that the Joe will understand it and use it.

You are right in that it is a much more tendentious comparison than it would seem from how seriously people take it. I would have to disagree though that crypto isn't an ecosystem of data, or that they simply exist separately online. Every crypto transfer comes enclosed in at least one TCP/IP internet packet. The most accurate analogy for the relationship of today's cryptocurrencies to the internet would be to a pre-web text-only service delivered over TCP/IP, such as gopher, FTP, or NNTP. Each cryptocurrency is like an internet protocol of its own. The internet protocol it resembles most in terms of data structures is probably NNTP (AKA Usenet). The protocol it (currently) resembles most in terms of actual usage steps is definitely email. But the protocol it resembles most in terms of future growth potential is FTP, because FTP is the internet protocol that formed the logical foundation for HTTP. (Many early web pages did all their downloads over FTP instead of HTTP.) I think it is inevitable that cryptocurrency internet protocols will follow a similar evolutionary path, user interface wise, as FTP -> HTTP. Some think that path will look like what they call 'web3' but I am not so sure. Vested interests from the previous tech generation rarely succeed in catching lightning twice in a bottle, so it may be more likely that something more disruptive will come along and make 'web3' look like the AOL of crypto.

Let me sum up some of the salient information and provide some commentary on behalf of the OP.. When saying Crypto, I can’t imagine he’s talking about the entire concept and system; bitcoin, and many alt-coins operate on the premise of supply and demand within the game-theory concept, so these are valuable because they are collectively seen to be of value to a large group of independent actors. These cryptos are acting like a global financial commodity (like precious metals and fiat currency). Coins like Ethereum are distinct in that they act like a low-friction financial service layer which allows full-scope financial applications to be built upon it and take advantage of the lower friction — Layer 1 services are designed to provide capability for Layer 2 services — similar to how TCP/IP is designed to allow HTTP/SSH/FTP type services to function as a mechanism to distribute information, and HTTP offers the capability to provide distributed APIs such as REST and SOAP, etc… Fiat currency, once it is understood, is essentially a proxy mechanism to allow the equitable and infinitely divisible distribution of goods and services. Its value is based entirely on the aggregate belief in its ability to accurately describe the future risk of equitable repayment and being controlled by a centralized government, it provides assurance through the functional capacity of the population contained within the currency’s financial envelope — if all of America stopped working the value of the dollar would plummet because the assumed backing of GDP has eroded and the risk of default of debit skyrockets. Crypto is an extremely viable platform for the storage of wealth as well as providing a low-friction financial transfer platform, but its value as a service is MUCH MUCH less in established 1st world countries where the balance of wealth, power and stability currently reside. Where crypto as a currency really excels is in capturing and catering to the under serviced and under privileged regions of the world — its initial aim should be to capture the long-tail of financial services and erode the foundations of the 1st world capital structures which are based entirely on an unbalanced goods-for-services model that takes cheap labor and turns it into wealth for the already wealthy, or in the case of countries that use forced or child labor — stealing labor and converting it into personal wealth for the ‘elite’.

While Bitcoin may not be the ARPANET of money Lightning certainly reminds me of BBS or FidoNet, rather than the WWW. Bitcoin is still somewhat cumbersome to use for the non-techies. Sending sats or signing messages is like using FTP or Kermit. Is the Internet mainstream btw? An astonishing 37% of the world population have never used it, obviously way less in the developed countries (still up to 20% of 16 to 72 years old).
