     Jonathan Jaech on "Ethereum and the Corporate Dragons."


What's the big deal about Ethereum?

Jonathan Jaech (aka Jonny Stryder) once addressed the Karl Hess Club about "reputational self-governance games" that secure public ledgers (e.g., Bitcoin and Ethereum). He concluded that "promise games" can replace government as we know it, elaborating further in his book, Blockchain Faith, published last year.

This time he'll focus on the networks themselves -- their histories, features, applications, and direction.

Ethereum is a standout network. Will it be devoured by corporate dragons, or will it tame the dragons?

We'll discuss where the Ethereum technology and community stands, and seek to better understand what it might mean for us and coming generations.
