Whilst funny it's pretty closed minded.
Do I need a blockchain? Yes!
True, I suppose. Need only comes after novelty expires.
Darth cerf is only saying this because his job depends on it.
That's pretty funny coming from the one guy who is the reason there are domain name fees. 24 hours ago, someone pointed out you could replace ARIN and ICANN with blockchain technology.
This is vint's reaction based on his own self-interest.
Keep in mind when we wanted to charge for all email at NCI, Bob Metcalf, the guy who invented ethernet, dubbed him Darth Cerf.
Technically this is a condensed version of older flow charts with many variations, some actually get into the nuance of when to actually implement a blockchain... but too many are running around saying you need blockchain for everything, or that blockchain is the future of all software; neither of those "everything" statements are accurate.
When do you need blockchain? Decision models. – Sebastien Meunier – Medium
