Do you think an open-source Blockchain startup can be financially successful in this market and current climate? (Jan. 2019)
Yes i very much enjoyed the section on Open Source and its trending pattern. I think it will only get stronger and bigger as decentralisation increases combined with the progression of “surveillance state” like approach of most governments.
I’ve just completed this section on open source, and I found it fascinating.
Slightly spooky that Microsoft was trying to buy github at point of publishing.
Hello Ivan, this is a very interesting lecture about open source, and the growing surveillance culture - especially in these really unusual times with track and trace systems being introduced - wow what a great excuse to close down borders, restrict travel, inoculate and track and trace! - especially when you think about social credit scoring. I’m not sure about Microsoft buying github - is that what we want? Very interesting what you say about closed source operating systems and software in phones, laptops, etc. I have often wondered about this. I’m not even on Facebook! LOL
I agree that this is a very interesting lecture for all sorts of reasons, especially in these extraordinary times. Stay safe!
