Anthony Pompliano, Founder and Partner at Morgan Creek Digital considers the ongoing US government shut down as a few people who can’t agree on issues and incapable of making use of consensus.
Tweeting on Thursday, Pompliano stated that the development clearly attests to the fact that decentralized technology developed to attain consensus is imperative. He posted:
“The US government is shut down right now because a few people can’t agree on things. THE GREATEST GOVERNANCE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD CAN’T FIND CONSENSUS. Easily the best example about why decentralized tech built to find consensus is important. Algorithms over humans!”
Reaction To Tweet
Pompliano’s tweet attracted so many remarks, retweets and likes, mostly from his followers. CoinNewsLive brings you some of the comment.
Bjammerboy Crypto, a follower asked: “But what if AI takes over the world? Would it run more smoothly?”
“Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…,” Karl Kreder wrote. “until blockchains?”
Commenting, Luke Dashjr stated that Monarchy is better than democracy even with bad monarchs. However, Psycho Sage differed in opinion and said it is funny since everyone witnessed the infighting in BTC and humans can never work in harmony.
But Pompliano reacted by saying that in the BTC case “Consensus was still reached every block throughout all the infighting…” The reaction prompted Alexander Tapscott to call the Crypto expert a machine.
More so, CryptosBatman also begged to dissent. “The US Government does not have the greatest governance system in the world,” he said. “Why would you say that?”
RumHam, had this to contribute:
“Yikes…I’m all about Bitcoin, but algorithms over humans is straight out of a horror movie…Nah.”
US Government Shutdown
The ongoing US government shutdown entered its 25th day on Tuesday, smashing the record to become the most prolonged government shutdown in US history. The prior history dates back to the Clinton administration when a 21-day closedown emerged from a dispute amid President Bill Clinton and the GOP Congress that persisted from December 1995 to January 1996.
The shutdown became inevitable after Congress and President Donald Trump failed to reach a deal on a $5 Billion package to build a wall on the US-Mexican border. Media reports indicate that the situation has led to many government workers unable to receive salaries.
