re: Why do so many people get into blockchain out of FOMO? What in your mind makes this technology so uniquely capable of causing market hysteria?

Hey Ben, excellent question. I think due to the same reason people are using kubernetes for their 10 req/min applications. They follow other people, forgetting the context. The motivation I experienced was much simpler, MONEY :)

I think doing anything due to FOMO is bad for you because when things get hard, you won't have the motivation and passion to overcome the obstacles.

I personally like the technical challenge of not having a MySQL DB or one server you fully control, as in blockchain as you know, doing a release is not that simple because part of the network could refuse it and form a fork/split or become incompatible by accident.
