Thank you for this article. I like it. I agree, you have to decide for yourself if you want to mine Pi. I think, it is better to take the risk that you might have spent some minutes for nothing than to invest time and money which could be for nothing as well. The risk here with Pi is really almost zero.

Crypto is Easy #6 - August 2020

I like your article. I believe blockchain technology will lead the way in the future, too. I hope it makes the world in many aspects more inclusive and more trustful and fairer. On the one hand, I see a lot of revolutionary potential in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, i'm wondering if this technology could be a threat to governments and democratic societies, too. For example, nuclear technology was disruptive, but nuclear proliferation clearly has disadvantages. I'm wondering, if it is helpful/ or wise to potentially undermine democratic institutions which are in place for many many years by decentralization. I mean, I ask myself this from a political theoretic standpoint.
