My Linked Notes

  • 2021-02-14

    When I ask my friends about decentralized tech, the only thing they are aware of, if anything, is [[Bitcoin]]/[[Blockchain]]. When I ask if they are aware of things like decentralized social media (e.g. [[Secure ScuttleBut]]), or marketplaces like, they just kinda look at me funny. This might just tell you more about my friends than anything else, but I find it interesting.

    Another issue I see it that the UI/UX is no different than centralized services. People who use distributed technologies like [[Urbit]] and [[Secure ScuttleBut]] are those who appreciate the backend technology - not typical consumers. Will the average consumer be forced to build that same appreciation, or will distributed technologies start to offer a distinctly better user experience for consumers?

One last thing
