Dfinity launched Internet Computer last week. ICP, its cryptocurrency, already has a market cap of over $30 billion.

What interests me is how strongly Dfinity’s vision aligns with my piece about what life could be like in a decentralized world, thanks to Ralph Merkle. In the essay, I ask you to imagine a world powered by decentralized apps (dapps), where currencies are traded on decentralized exchanges (DEXs), and people transact business on distributed ledgers (a.k.a., blockchains). I also suggest that the future I asked you to envision “is literally just months away.” I was wrong. It’s happening right now. Or is it?
