Blockchain ‘explanation’ uninformed

Just as a general rule, if you don’t really understand a technology don’t try to explain it. It’s clear that you don’t understand blockchain and the way it works. It seems to me that if you’re going to go down that rabbit hole you should either get an expert on the show or do more research.

Just terrible.
