Sometimes, tradition or local custom or tribal law override the national law. The only thing that they can do is to push for government intervention so this thing can be changed. On the other hand, if the mindset of the people is still stuck on the old ways, then it would be harder to implement. Even with a great education but custom is the hardest
Yes, of course. When it was first designed, the internet is supposedly a decentralized platform, but one by one, it was taken control by big boys. As the technology mature, the idea of decentralization is coming up again. But the core of it is mathematically harder than saying it. Yes, the Geo location topology is harder to implement rather than ca
The reason is they are still being controlled by the old core that thinks that they can rule the world. Heck no! In fact, they are begging the EU government to outlaw bitcoin or any digital currency with massive campaign to spread the news about its illicit activity. ECB is dying and so its derivatives in every EU countries. They probably will not

Good for them. The problem is just I can hardly wait to test this platform rather than reading about it. And I agree with the author assessment on steemit. The idea is noble and grandeur, but the system behind it, is still having more questions than answers.
12 member banks of blockchain consortium R3CEV have completed a series of trials using distributed ledger startup Ripple's native asset, XRP. Aha ha ha! 3 years in the making and they are using Ripple all of a sudden? Duh! What the heck Gav, Hearns and the rest of their cronies doing for the past 3 years? I though they used to be a bitcoin core dev
"A successful hard fork round two would resolve this for the short and medium term as it would make the state possible to put in memory again," Duh! They underwent two hard fork already and the third is coming up in a short time period? People will ask the credibility of the network nonetheless. In fact, they probably raised a question whether the
