On another note. Generally speaking to anyone reading.Think about when you learned of BTC. Think about how long it took from first introduction of it, to when you learned enough to become a buyer.Took a fair amount of reading and studying yes?In the current state of the world with most having zero distractions and a lot of time on their hands from being bored at home, I think that situation is a hidden accelerant for bitcoin and thereafter the crypto market as a whole. People who didn’t have, or did not take the time to really learn what bitcoin and crypto was, now have all the time to do so.A lot of very smart people are advocating bitcoin as a hedge from global uncertainty. My point is that people who start the bitcoin, blockchain, and crypto rabbit hole of study will be able to do so much quicker.The time needed to go from uncomfortable and uneducated about crypto, to being a buyer, will take far less time measured in days or weeks, because binge study and binge watching podcasts are a solid way for people to pass time stuck at home. I am not saying this going to moon the market immediately. I am not saying it’s going to moon this year. I am just saying people around the world have a lot of time to sit down and actually learn what bitcoin and blockchain is in a shorter amount of days and weeks due to simple boredom.Once people get it, like most of us did years ago, they will become believers in the digital truth machine and sound money.
Sometimes I feel like whole current blockchain world was just made/invented as a proloque for main chapter called ELASTOS as a new world internet. We just need to ask ourself one key questions. That question is WHAT CAN I DO TO LET IT HAPPEN? 🥳
If elasOS was thought of as a general standard for Elastos, similar to how the erc20 standard, is separate to ethereum as an ecosystem. If elastOS is not meant to be a browser but really just to represent a general standard, then maybe it should have a standard name?like “ E4 standard “ short for Elastos runtime, hive, carrier, did blockchain?
elastOS isn't a framework. It's a browser. It's not a standard. It's a product. The first product that utilizes pretty much all of the elastos ecosystem - blockchain, carrier, hive. Apps inside elastOS do not have to build their own wallets and can just interact with the inbuilt wallet for all the blockchain transactions. Devs who want to build apps for elastOS do not have to write a lot of code and can just develop in one codebase and they can run on anything where elastOS also runs. People could build their own native apps outside of elastOS but they would have to write their own wallets, write code separately for different devices, etc. What elastOS does is make developers lives easier so anyone can develop a dapp for elastOS within a matter of minutes and get ready to ship for production. That is what elastOS does. Don't think of elastOS as a framework. It's not. Think of elastOS as one of the first products of elastos ecosystem that takes most of the developers painpoints away. Eventually you'll be able to back up everything(ur data, app data, etc) inside elastOS and then restore it easily on another device - all in a decentralized manner. Ofc, elastOS will also be expanded in the future where you will be able to interact with inbuilt wallet or inbuilt did dapp from outside elastOS so you do not necessarily have to develop an app for elastOS to utilize elastOS but that's far down the road.
Yes, there are tradeoffs as I mentioned earlier of which if elastOS stops being supported and doesn't work, the apps inside elastOS would also not work but that's the same argument that can be applied to any platform. If you build an app for android devices and tomorrow, android devices suddenly have some issues, well your app is going to be affected too. So, this is a universal thing, not just unique to elastOS. This is very common in the software industry in fact. There are apps that don't work on certain versions of windows. Well, that just means elastOS will need to be maintained for a long time and the hope is CRC can fund elastOS team in the far future so they can continue to put out new features. THis applies to blockchain code, carrier code, hive code, pretty much any code that Elastos has. And it applies to all the projects ,not just Elastos by the way. So, there is no point to worrying about this. If android decides to not support the browser, well, there's Apple. If Apple decides to not support the brwoser, well there's android. If neither of them support the browser tomorrow, well there will be a desktop version for windows, mac, linux in the future. One step at a time I suppose. This is not a concern we need to think about deeply.
