🚀 Dear SelfKey Astronauts, 

You may have heard about the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank 📉❗, as well as the impact it had on USDC’s value recently. But let us briefly analyze the financial disaster which comes with our assets still being under the governance of centralized systems, such as banks.

  • As we have stressed recently, centralized systems are convenient, but their security measures are quite weak. 
  • Being part of a centralized system means we cannot oppose the rules and regulations of the system, even if certain decisions are to our detriment. 
  • This can lead not only to financial risks, but also the risk of our private data being leaked as well.

Decentralized systems come with their own challenges, but they provide a myriad of benefits::

  • Full Transparency.
  • Democratic Decision-making.
  • Self-Sovereignty.

✔️The collapse of such a powerful bank is even more of a reason for us to be properly informed about the risks of depending on centralized systems. These failures in centralized systems are Good for SelfKey.

⚡The SelfKey DAO Whitepaper can teach you more about the benefits of decentralized systems!⚡

🙌 In other great news, SelfKey was listed in the AI Crypto Category on Coinmarketcap and Cryptoslate!
