If I understand correctly the EU has just decided not to regulate blockchain tech for a while so financial institutions can "experiment". Idiot hell fuckers.

and people don't do that because one of the responsibilities of a bartender is to cut off drunks.

the payment isn't the problem. there's nothing for Bitcoin to solve here, or anywhere really.

it's a disingenuous comparison. The communications protocol is already operating literally at lightspeed (ok not quite, but pretty much), and the system by design slows down processing based on computational power. Even with etherium or bitcoin, it could literally be instantaneous if it wasn't for the processing power "solution" to the "problem" of trust. There's no mechanical or software improvements possible.

They also prevent children from being in bars and drinking but with these people it would be a positive

It's also accurate that early airplanes for world war 1 required a lot of spruce and thus needed a lot of trees to be chopped down for the ultimate purpose of killing people and literally men with guns were involved.

nation states and corporations could never control information on the blockchain, unless they could somehow control 51% of the network, which i am assured is simply impossible.

china for example, would never have within their national borders, more than half of the hashrate of the entire network
