Read_761 – A Sound Bitcoin Financial System [Alex B]

"I believe it’s important to go back to what this sovereignty is made of. Bitcoin works because an economic majority is aligning incentives for every constituent of the network. The longer tail of the economic distribution may choose to run a node and validate consensus but ultimately consensus follows the money."

 Alex B.

Today we close out the lengthy back and forth over the evolutionary path of Bitcoin to a billion + users. Alex B brings us a great followup with a less technical and more abstract understanding of the security model of Bitcoin itself and collaborative custody, through the lens of the economic majority enforcing the honesty of all players. Don't miss another great read.
