Summary
Paul Sztorc talks about why the oracle problem is so hard (specifically, the historical evolution of failures, from API, to clearnet website, to darknet website, to multisig escrow, to judicial "competition", to Ethereum/Augur, and why they fail), and the basics of blockchain ("blockchain as immortal software", ledger "rents", revenge of "the idea guy").
