Exchanges in crypto today are similar to what AOL was. They help users get onto crypto as a platform. What does the IMDB of crypto look like? It is interesting to consider the kinds of unique payments that blockchains enable.

Being honest isn’t always a way of maintaining trust. For example if company A announces that they are unable to meet their deliverables on time, you trust them less to be capable of delivering on time, although you might trust them more to be honest about their failures.

I think this way of viewing trust often leads to actions that focus on maintaining the trust that has been gained as opposed to actions that are the best in a situation.

Technology is not neutral. But I think we need to recognize the asymmetry between cooperation and interference. All else equal, tools for communication are more beneficial than tools for censorship. This is why I work on crypto rather than computer vision for surveillance
