Chris Burniske, co-author of Cryptoassets, thinks in the open source world of cryptoassets, “the community is the defensible resource, and a committed community can’t be bought.”
“Technology is not defensible in the open source world of crypto networks. Community is the defensible resource, and a *committed* community can't be bought. And labor as a community member can show up in all kinds of ways, it's not exclusively technical-labor. It is proof-of-labor, not capital, that converts someone into being there over the long term, as opposed to a fairweather fan,” he stated via his Twitter handle.
