Ed 1. Blockchain is Dead

The first edition is a set of long form essays by Aleksandar Svetski, covering a broad array of topics, including:

  • Why blockchain doesn’t work and is at best hype, or at worst, a fraudulent idea
  • Blockchain’s broken promise, and why Bitcoin is the real innovation
  • Immutability is a Service (Iaas)
  • The Bitcoin Operating System (BoS)
  • Bitcoin & The Internet: A Comparison
  • Networks & How they function
  • Lightning: What is it, what’s its potential?
  • Money, as the fabric of society.

The original talk, that inspired the Bitcoin Times, and covers the above topics is also available on YouTube:
