Ралф Меркел е един от създателите на модерната криптография. Около 4-5 човека стоят в основата и той е един от тях. В момента е на 65 години - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Merkle.

Всеки, който в момента ползва окачествени електронни подписи ползва негови научни постижения. Притежава цяло съзвездие от научни титли и десетки научни разработки. "Дървото на Меркел" е криптографско построение, което стои в основата на Биткойн. Притежава докторски степени от Бъркли и Станфорд. Действащ член е на Екстропианс (Extropians) - движение на футуролози изучаващи възможностите за удължаване на човешкия живот и трансхуманизама. Член е на борда на директорите на Alcor Life Extension Foundation в Скотсдейл, Аризона/САЩ.

Наскоро случайно попаднах на нещо написано от Ралф Меркел още преди една година. Струва си да се прочете и оцени всяка една дума. Написаното е специално за хора без технически познания, които биха искали да оценят значението на Биткойн.

DAOs, Democracy and Governance

DAO’s as living entities

What is a DAO? The acronym stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization. The concept for a DAO
is derived from Bitcoin, which might be viewed as the first prototype for a DAO.
While there are many technical descriptions of Bitcoin and the excitement it has created, it is perhaps
worthwhile to try and capture this excitement in a way that can be understood by those without a
technical background.

Briefly, and non-technically, Bitcoin is the first example of a new form of life. It lives and breathes on the
internet. It lives because it can pay people to keep it alive. It lives because it performs a useful service
that people will pay it to perform. It lives because anyone, anywhere, can run a copy of its code. It lives
because all the running copies are constantly talking to each other. It lives because if any one copy is
corrupted it is discarded, quickly and without any fuss or muss. It lives because it is radically transparent:
anyone can see its code and see exactly what it does.
It can’t be changed. It can’t be argued with. It can’t be tampered with. It can’t be corrupted. It can’t be
stopped. It can’t even be interrupted.

If nuclear war destroyed half of our planet, it would continue to live, uncorrupted. It would continue to
offer its services. It would continue to pay people to keep it alive.
The only way to shut it down is to kill every server that hosts it. Which is hard, because a lot of servers
host it, in a lot of countries, and a lot of people want to use it.
Realistically, the only way to kill it is to make the service it offers so useless and obsolete that no one
wants to use it. So obsolete that no one wants to pay for it. No one wants to host it. Then it will have no
money to pay anyone. Then it will starve to death.

But as long as there are people who want to use it, it’s very hard to kill, or corrupt, or stop, or interrupt.
The technical community was fascinated with this new life form. Not because of what it could do, or had
done. But because it was a new life form. Suppose you lived on a sterile planet, and all day long you
swam in its sterile oceans and watched the waves on its sterile shores. And one day you saw a single
trilobite. And you took it apart. And you realized you could build it. And not only could you build
trilobites, you could build any of the strange creatures in the Cambrian Explosion. And you dimly
understood that there were things beyond the Cambrian Explosion. And you might be able to build
them, too.

Anyone who wants to create their own new digital life form can do so. Like Bitcoin, it will live on the
internet. Like Bitcoin, it will survive as long as it does something that people will pay for. Like Bitcoin,
there will be no way of killing it. Like Bitcoin, it will be radically transparent. Like Bitcoin, it can’t be
stopped. Like Bitcoin, it will be able to pay people to do anything people are willing to do in exchange for
its cryptocurrency. Unlike Bitcoin, it will follow its own rules, whatever rules were programmed into it
when it was created.

You could create a currency exchange, or a domain name service, or a prediction market, or a company.
You could even create a government

Много е жалко ,че не чета на английски... но аз от кога говоря ,че блок веригата е пра пра пра дядото на ДНК.... Хубаво е ,че не съм само аз 😀
Нямам идея какво пише в статията!
