101 Series: Decentralization

101 Series


Brent, Karim, and Mike all sit down for a very special 101 episode. This is the first 101 topic that was decided by a listener. The user Edifice on Discord picked this topic, and the team goes over all of the areas that he wanted to speak about, and also gets wayyyy off topic to talk about a bunch of other tangents.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy Decentralization 101.
