Ethereum (ETH) founder speaks of Marginalism. For those who do not understand the theory of Marginalism, it is the discrepancy in the value of goods and services with reference to their secondary and marginal utility.
Vitalik Buterin tweeted: “And I would say Marginalism is *still* underrated by the public. There are lots, and lots of cases where having 20% more or less of something is an important social cause, but having 1000% more or none at all would be a disaster, and it continues to be hard to get such points across.”
When a commentator required for clarifications about Marginalism he took to the examples of cars.
He clarified on how 33% of lesser cars will lead to healthier and nicer places. Due to less congestion, he stated that the remaining drivers would feel much happier. About 95% fewer cars he opined will make life a lot convenient for several people. About 100% fewer cars can mean a lot of people will die because they cannot get to the hospital on time.
This someone considered as being a great insight in to “scaling structures of form” in relationship to selected environmental contexts. Therefore, recognizing the value of percentages and graded incremental permitting for the effect of exponentials. This they opined should be apprised immediately. The thought was further complemented to be cool and abstract.
When assessing the resulting compromise, one of the commentators stated that the famous “checks and balances” has a problem when it comes to having a good governance system. He also stated how most people need not have to worry about what it would mean ongoing 100% on something. He opined that they would be getting higher rewards by pushing for extreme policies. The resulting compromise tends to be in favor of the policymakers.
Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert, tweeted: “I liked the way Ethereum (ETH) Vitalik Buterin spoke of how he mentioned, don’t compare “all A vs all B,” compare “1% more A vs 1% more B.”
Ethereum (ETH) Whales are Fleeing in Droves
Vitalik Buterin tweeted: “Distribution gets more concentrated [good]: ETH whales are stocking up and so should you! D gets more C [bad]: The People are leaving ETH, only rich whales remain D gets less C [good]: ETH economy becoming more decentralized! D gets less C [bad]: ETH whales are fleeing in droves!”
In response, someone cynically replied, ETH bad devs are the only whales, and that smart people stay away from ETH.
The latest abstract thoughts of Buterin are a must-read, one of them interestingly implied that If Vitalik were to design a new chain to live alongside Bitcoin and Ethereum that he would take all the political tradeoffs that BTC, ETC are not willing to take.
