Help or more dystopian government control ?

Austin , Texas is piloting a program for putting the homeless population on the blockchain. Sounds great and great for society in general. There are some others around the globe attempting something similar.  There is a huge need for poor people and affordable housing as well as homelessness in many many cities and rural areas.  

  But will this be a program to help the homeless or a pseudo subtle attempt to control and know everything about everything and everyone by government agencies and corporations ?  

I used to think a blockchain ID system was the perfect use case for many verticals and industries.  Now it's starting to look like another attempt at control by your typical governments and mega corporations.

  Will it help the homeless or just be another tool to control more people?

How will Blockchain Change the World ?

How will Blockchain Change the World ? Blockchain, bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Monero and the like are changing the world as we speak...

And why not when people can earn 100%, 200%, 900%  returns in such a short time.  It's a very interesting dynamic but it's only one piece of the 'blockchain' and cryptocurrency puzzle.   As they say it's like we are early stages of the 1993 internet but wth the 1998 Hype cycle.   The investment money is driving the hype, but the technology will change the future.  People just don't realize it yet. Most people don't even know what this is and the banks are so fearful they are trying to create their own private blockchain consortium.  


Cryptocurrencies as legal tender is the defacto Bitcoin and blockchain answer and use case.  It's a ledger. It's secure. I…

Decentralized internet...

What exactly is a decentralized internet of the future?      Decentralized. A decentralized world and internet.  Places or DAOs or a BitNation like "organization" are out in the wild wild decentralized global West now.However do most people know what any of this means ?  Some might.  Many don't.  Fewer even know it's happening already.  They just see Bitcoin or Ethereum as a money making investment opportunity.  That's good and bad for various reasons.      But is Ethereum really decentralized?
In one way it is. In another it is one very popular intelligent young 'founder' who seems to have the Steve Jobs and Elon Musk effect on Ethereum and the cryptocurrency space. What he says seems to be the one version of the truth.  And ConsenSys also seems  to be the one version of a company that builds out the real platform.  A lot of very smart and great individuals. But they also arent exactly decentralized.  Maybe it's a open source Redhat kind of play. I…
