The Spectrum of Decentralization
I have always firmly believed that everything lives on a spectrum of centralization and decentralization. In this clip, I talk about this history of Apple vs. Microsoft and how centralization and decentralization both have a place in terms of providing value to any given platform.
One of the most popular debates in the world is IPhone vs Android. But if you think about it, the debate is really centralized vs decentralized. Closed source vs open source.
Android offers more freedom when it comes to picking softwares and phone models where IPhone users don't have very much choice when deciding between these things. The UX is simplified by lack of choice.
It's ironic to think that WEB3 has created a space that promotes the concept and freedom of decentralization and yet one of the most successful companies in the world, Apple, is one of the most centralized companies out there and most people just beat their drums about why centralization is bad in all cases all the time.
Decentralization is great in terms of freedom, while centralization is great in terms of ease of use. It's a lot easier to use a bank account in comparison to sing Bitcoin. The downfall is with a bank account you don't technically own your money, the bank does.
In this clip, I talk about this spectrum and centralization vs. decentralization. I also talk about why I believe there is a necessary combination of the two to create great products.
