RE: Wikipedia Co-Founder Larry Sanger Creates A Forum To Decentralize Social Media - Thinks HIVE (Blockchain) is Crap

Wow. All this coming from a guy who manages a website that begs for donations, and supports "fact checked" information run by a select group of nazis. The guy is completely inept as far as approachable and decentralized information sharing goes. He seems to operate on the belief that all blockchains are unreliable and too hard for most people to adopt, likely due to market risk and tax regulations.

Is wordpress fully open source? I'm pretty sure the developers could royally mess up people's websites running their old code if they wanted to.


WordPress is open source. But the user base is very small (I mean how many of your friends have their personal website. 39% of the top 10 million websites use WordPress). Cryptocurrency can be adopted by many more people. Take Brave Browser for an example. Each browser is its own cryptocurrency wallet.

Worst part is that with the involvement of money, developers can seriously focus on contributing without conflicts of interest and without having to worry about their finances. This is one of the greatest strengths of cryptocurrency compared to your typical open source projects that rarely get enough attention.
