@douginamug I’ve previously heard some criticism of cryptocurrency distribution models from the leftis/socialist point of view, but without constructive proposals. Duniter seems to be one of the first to offer something in that matter and in that sense it’s interesting. However I haven’t evaluated whether their approach to confirming people’s existence via web of trust can actually work. In particular, how are they going to solve the problem of hidden dead grandpa?
@KrzysiekJ ah yes, I see. Well, I guess they ensure this the same way they authenticate he was a real person in the first place, with their web of trust function. I don't know precisely how the WoT works, but I think it requires regular authentication from various sources. Authentication without centralized institutions seems to be a pretty big challenge.
