Anyone else here have bosses and consultants tell them they need to 'upgrade infrastructure with blockchain'?
This nonsense is killing me

My plan is to fork an open SQL implementation, make zero changes other than renaming it to "blockchain db" and package it with HA or instancing.
At least that's the best I can come up with
Only interesting thing about block chain is PoW, and the people selling the buzzword react to it like it's the antichrist
Without PoW you're left with a mirrored db. Google' Doc's excel fits their definition. It's madness.
