There hav been some interesting discussions, starting with Ameen Soleimani’s “war mode” Tweet, and continuing today with Yalda Mousavinia’s Enabling War Mode article.

Some points from Yalda’s article:

  • Some centralization is necessary
  • Coin holder vote for CEO / war general
  • Avoid “Enterprise blockchain” because this enables our ecosystem competitors
  • A key goal is to sustainably earn fiat, create fiat on-ramps
  • As this is war, it is not necessary to practice open source or transparency

In the discussion so far, some interesting additional points are layered on:

  • Decisions somehow need to be made swiftly (citing Horowitz’s Peacetime CEO / Wartime CEO)
  • It is not necessary to avoid single sign-on e.g. FB Connect, so long as we have a roadmap to move users off of centralized platforms
  • Product experiments, forking dapps but integrating using current “off the shelf” solutions e.g. Stripe

This increase in subscription revenue represents a major shift, and the community should take notice. Perhaps Apple has been strategically moving developer and user behavior away from “free + selling your data” over to “subscriptions + privacy”.
