Thank you for this. The problem I find with tech nowadays is how bad it can sometimes be to try and explain it to regular people. It’s unintentional gatekeeping and in some ways understandably it can be really hard to condense this stuff like blockchain, etherium, etc. into easily digestible language. The catch 22 is that we have to figure out how to if this will ever truly catch on.

My mother and grandmother need to be able to understand this at least on a very surface level.

I say all of this to illustrate simply that this article is clear, concise, and definitely helped me understand these things more, even as someone who is generally more technically knowledgeable than the average person .
