"a blockchain can't directly read whether or not something happened in the real world"



>> No.16551613

Mentioned this yesterday. I wish they’d stayed on this aspect a bit longer. Let’s speculate: do you think Eric knows about Chainlink? My guess is Thiel does and Eric is in his inner circle. Side note: Eric’s face bumps are repugnant and Vitalik is so awkward. Cringe.

they are so oblivious to APIs and financial contracts in the real world

Thanks Rebecca

He knows, his claim was that a smart contract using third party data sources technically isn’t “trustless” anymore

Nothing is trustless. I have seen miners fucking with the chain before to win the fomo3d jackpot.

>> No.16552194

He knows and vitalik isn’t oblivious you morons.
A decentralized network, such as Ethereum, can only verify data that Exists natively. If you want a true trust-less system, every action must be done “on-chain” so to speak. If you have an oracle fetch data, the contract is then relying on information off-chain and it has no real way of truly verifying it.
This issue also reflects on other problems like proof of identity. You could make the argument of a sort of point system existing that gives a statistical probability of 99.9999% likely hood that an event occurred or that an identity is true, but again it wouldn’t be truly trustless. The concept is that you can reach a state in which you have .99 repeating = 1, such that you run it through a Monte Carlo simulation and always arrive at the same answer until the heat death of the universe. Look at how bitcoin seed phrases are generated. You could use a phrase generator but sit there for an eternity before you found a phrase that would unlock a wallet. It’s not a perfect system, but it is mathematically sound.

/biz/ is filled with brainlets. Why do I even come to this board anymore.

Holy shit. Is Vitalik autistic enough to not know the dress code or does he not care about his public image ?
It looks like he got kidnapped from in his bed.

>> No.16552249

When it's his event he wears black skinny jeans and nice sneakers lolol

He must have just not given a shit.

Oh Rebecca, how I've missed you. Welcome back!

I really don’t get this lol

>> No.16552535

This argument is a semantic cop-out that ignores the game theoretical/economic incentives that make chainlink's oracle network functionally possible.
It's an autistic, spergy argument.
Vitalik clearly doesn't believe it's possible, but listen to him in this interview--he is a smart yet arrogant little boy that knows nothing of the world

>> No.16552756

>choose how much decentralization you want
currently it's unavailable, but in distant future, I see shitload of nodes competing to bring answers.

Does being such an edge master help you cope with failure and poverty?
