We actually do. We have this thing called the global financial market. Been around for awhile. You need to replicate at least that functionality and do it safely and with meaningful innovation. As for decentralization, we also understand that pretty well too!
Hoskinson’s commentary points out what the future of Cardano will look like. Recently Cardano deployed the Byron reboot, which will enable the transition to…
