You have some central aspects there as well. But from all that we know, I think Bitcoin is by far the most decentral asset out there. - PhilippIt's a little bit sad for Bitcoin, because Bitcoin was never the problem this year. Bitcoin was something like the victim, it has been dragged down, like synchrony with other assets. - PhilippIn the token ecosystem, in the crypto ecosystem, there are also approaches popping up with regard to Web3 in the metaverse which will be really changing the world. - PhilippCorporations have had huge difficulties getting into the blockchain ecosystem. They try to apply this technology like any other enterprise technology, but blockchain is different. - PhilippBlockchain creates new economic areas which haven't been there, and therefore, they can't be one to one compared to existing legacy domains. - PhilippResources:
