I suppose I should post an #introduction.
Good read: No, your cryptocurrency cannot work.
Existing blockchain implementations create an incentive structure that very closely resembles a pyramid scheme and benefits the most privileged members the most. If an alternative to this is ever created (I’d like to see an alternative very much), it will likely be published in the form of an academic pdf that doesn’t want your money.
It's largely procedural with each life played as an individual creature in the same organic, #scifi society, so your actions in one life will have consequences on all your future lives. This is a fascinating idea from a perspective of building empathy and society level thinking.

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.
A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."
