It's probably naive, but I genuinely wonder where we'd be today re: people "self-hosting" servers if IPv6 had already seen wider adoption, more upload bandwidth were generally available, and "decentralization" had focused more on "sync eventually" instead of, like, XMPP-style.

reading: The Case Against Crypto 

For cryptocurrency to have any real utility, the volatility needs to cool off.
