Many experts say lack of trust will not be a barrier to increased public reliance on the internet. Those who are hopeful that trust will grow expect technical and regulatory change will combat users’ concerns about security and privacy. Those who have doubts about progress say people are inured to risk, addicted to convenience and will not be offered alternatives to online interaction. Some expect the very nature of trust will change.
“technology” is media, indeed “everything” is media.
the introduction of new media causes change in the millieu.
the new medium, four effects as a 2×2 combinator.
What is enhanced?
What is obsoleted?
What is recovered (from obsolescence)
What is reversed (transformed), at the limit, any limit?
The last is very high concept: as in <quote ref=”there“>Acoustic radio flips into audio-visual TV.<quote>.
Pretty sure that the FCC doesn’t see it that way; nor does the NCEES; but this is media theory so it’s all compos mentis.

Enhance → exchange.
Retrieve → the bazaar.
Obsolesce → fiat currency.
Reverse → mutual unintelligibility, no exchange

Enhance → peer-to-peer.
Retrieve → individual agency.
Obsolesce → platform dominance.
Reverse → into one-to-one
Via Why. The Web, of HTTP, cannot (or has not) <quote>
HTTP is inefficient and inexpensive…with video delivery, a P2P approach could save 60% in bandwidth costs <claime/d>.
Humanity’s history is deleted daily…IPFS provides historic versioning (like git) and makes it simple to set up resilient networks for mirroring of data.
The web’s centralization limits opportunity…IPFS remains true to the original vision of the open and flat web, but delivers the technology which makes that vision a reality.
Our apps are addicted to the backbone…IPFS powers the creation of diversely resilient networks which enable persistent availability with or without Internet backbone connectivity.
Via How. The IPFS presents a (non-POSIX, yet POSIX-similar) hierarchical filesystem metaphor as a unifying artifice, wherein <quote>:
Each file and all of the blocks within it are given a unique fingerprint called a cryptographic hash.
IPFS removes duplications across the network and tracks version history for every file. <responsive>Uniqueness in time and space.</responsive>
Each network node stores only content it is interested in and some indexing information that helps figure out who is storing what. <responsive>What if no network is interested for a brief period? Who shall suffer the little files, the lost blocks, the unloved & unwanted slabs?</responsive>
When looking up files, you’re asking the network to find nodes storing the content behind a unique hash.
Every file can be found by human-readable names using a decentralized naming system called IPNS.
<responsive>Like The DNS?</responsive>

tl;dr → transactions are fractioned out (structured) into micro-transactions and sent via separate channels.
The bitcoin protocol can encompass the global financial transaction volume in all electronic payment systems today, without a single custodial third party holding funds or requiring participants to have anything more than a computer using a broadband connection. A decentralized system is proposed whereby transactions are sent over a network of micropayment channels (a.k.a. payment channels or transaction channels) whose transfer of value occurs off-blockchain. If Bitcoin transactions can be signed with a new sighash type that addresses malleability, these transfers may occur between untrusted parties along the transfer route by contracts which, in the event of uncooperative or hostile participants, are enforceable via broadcast over the bitcoin blockchain in the event of uncooperative or hostile participants, through a series of decrementing timelocks.
