Beyond the Bitcoin Bubble - The New York Times

The real promise of these new technologies, many of their evangelists believe, lies not in displacing our currencies but in replacing much of what we now think of as the internet, while at the same time returning the online world to a more decentralized and egalitarian system. If you believe the evangelists, the blockchain is the future. But it is also a way of getting back to the internet’s roots.

herein lies the cognitive dissonance that confronts anyone trying to make sense of the blockchain: the potential power of this would-be revolution is being actively undercut by the crowd it is attracting, a veritable goon squad of charlatans, false prophets and mercenaries. Not for the first time, technologists pursuing a vision of an open and decentralized network have found themselves surrounded by a wave of opportunists looking to make an overnight fortune. The question is whether, after the bubble has burst, the very real promise of the blockchain can endure.

The first layer — call it InternetOne — was founded on open protocols, which in turn were defined and maintained by academic researchers and international-standards bodies, owned by no one. In fact, that original openness continues to be all around us, in ways we probably don’t appreciate enough. Email is still based on the open protocols POP, SMTP and IMAP; websites are still served up using the open protocol HTTP; bits are still circulated via the original open protocols of the internet, TCP/IP. You don’t need to understand anything about how these software conventions work on a technical level to enjoy their benefits. The key characteristic they all share is that anyone can use them, free of charge. You don’t need to pay a licensing fee to some corporation that owns HTTP if you want to put up a web page; you don’t have to sell a part of your identity to advertisers if you want to send an email using SMTP. Along with Wikipedia, the open protocols of the internet constitute the most impressive example of commons-based production in human history.

Neuf clés pour (enfin) comprendre la cryptomania

puis aux jeux d’écriture informatique : les euros qui vont et viennent sur vos comptes en banque n’ont de réalité que parce que chacun les reconnaît et que les banques en organisent la comptabilité. Cet argent est dépendant des Etats, des banques centrales et n’a de valeur que parce qu’il est adossé à une économie, l’euro en Europe, le dollar aux Etats-Unis.

L’avènement du bitcoin marque une étape supplémentaire : c’est un code informatique, inviolable et individualisé. Pas besoin de banque ou d’autorité centrale pour garantir son authenticité. Ces qualités font que le bitcoin est qualifié d’or 2.0.
