Roundtable's Rob Nelson sat down to discuss the many arguments for decentralization with six blockchain thought leaders.
David Zell: “Look at Russia where Bitcoin is their only way out. Right? We're seeing Bitcoin and crypto function as a bulwark against what would've been an even larger crisis. I think that's one of the biggest things that's going to change in the discourse–that people are going to wake up to the fact that the monetary order is changing. And the arguments that advocates for our technology have made are now grounded in a very, very demonstrable, empirical event, as opposed to just kind of being some thought experiment."
Vladimir Karishev: “We don't understand yet how the decentralization of this conflict will impact the next conflict. The Ukrainian crisis moves the world to decentralization. This is what I see now, because one of the reasons that Ukraine is still standing when the Pentagon was giving us three days, is that we are outnumbering them three times because Ukraine is a very decentralized country. Ukraine was a horizontally structured, decentralized system, based on the local communities. Unlike the autocratic structure of Russia. And in this conflict, decentralization wins by a huge margin."
