Article: A Conflict of Crypto Visions

I wanted to share this very interesting, thought-provoking recent article from Yassine Elmandjra and Arjun Balaji:

It’s one of the few articles about crypto/web3 I’ve seen that 1. analyzes things from a high-level, social perspective, and 2. puts things into a broader (i.e., non-crypto-focused) framework, in this case the concept of the “constrained” vs. “unconstrained” worldview of social theorist Thomas Sowell. It’s a very interesting lens through which to examine and understand a lot of the debates in the blockchain space including wealth distribution, governance, and PoW vs. PoS.

Curious to hear others’ thoughts!
