'Anything That Can Be Decentralized Will Be Decentralized' 6 Years Later

After one of the most challenging weeks in recent memory we're talking about a new consensus-driven approach to DeFi oracles and revisiting Johnston's Law (anything that can be decentralized will be decentralized) with the man who coined the phrase so many years ago.

On today's podcast we're joined by early investor and entrepreneur David Johnston to discuss:

  • A new "consensus-based" alternative to "reserve based," "game theory based" or trusted oracle-based Stablecoins
  • The growing relevance of DeFi even for those who aren't using it
  • Johnston's Law six years later, how far we've come and real reasons for optimism on the decentralized evolution of everything.
