The integrity of invictus continues to shine though.  Let's try to show patience....the challenges are legion and the journey has only just begun.

I find I'm so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it is the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.   (Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding, Shawshank Redemption)

It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. Right? And this bag was just dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. That's the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can't take it, and my heart is just going to cave in.' (Ricky Fitts, American Beauty)

The creative use of this technology can change the course of human history and allowed to mature, offers the genuine prospect of social justice. I choose to believe invictus has both the creative genius and the integrity to communicate this incredibly benevolent force to the world.

please correct me if i'm wrong, but does it really matter who profits or by how much from the initial building of decentralized infrastructure.  All that really matters is that it is built and given the opportunity to thrive and out-compete structures based on hierarchies.  The real benefits are in the long term where the allocation of capital and resource will become more democratic and wealth will become more evenly distributed.  The knock on benefits have the power to tranform humanity and move us closer to becoming civilized.
