Kelvin MacKenzie’s son unveils blockchain firm Fenestra to tackle ad transparency | The Drum
Ashley MacKenzie, media executive and son of former editor of The Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, has raised money to launch a new blockchain agency, called Fenestra.
According to The Times, the blockchain technology will be designed to plug into brand’s marketing efforts, offering “a new, independent and more transparent model”.
MacKenzie, co-founder of Base79 and former chief executive of Brave Bison, said: “Change is coming. Advertising is an incredibly powerful tool, today’s media supply chain does not work in favour of the advertiser who ultimately funds it.”

Why Decentralization Matters – Chris Dixon – Medium
Cryptonetworks are networks built on top of the internet that 1) use consensus mechanisms such as blockchains to maintain and update state, 2) use cryptocurrencies (coins/tokens) to incentivize consensus participants (miners/validators) and other network participants. Some cryptonetworks, such as Ethereum, are general programming platforms that can be used for almost any purpose. Other cryptonetworks are special purpose, for example Bitcoin is intended primarily for storing value, Golem for performing computations, and Filecoin for decentralized file storage.

Why Decentralization Matters – Chris Dixon – Medium
Chris Dixon writes about the importance of decentralization to move to the next stage of the internet (in his words stage 3, as opposed to the current, highly centralized stage 2). I *think* I agree with this sentiment—the current state of affairs certainly seems a little *sub-prime*.

That said, Dixon says the way there leads via blockchains; which may or may not be true;

Which brings me to a third aspect—and one with which I violently disagree. Going from his rock solid arguments about the inherent risks and weaknesses of high levels of centralization, and his call for greater decentralization, Dixon comes to the conclusion that the financial incentives of cryptocurrencies are the carrot to get *developers et al* on board. This transactional model, tied directly to financial payoff, seems risky. What's more, it seems banal and tired and outdated.

The incentive should be, I don't know, *bigger*. Think along the lines of "here's a network that you can build the future and your lives on if you just help maintaining it a little." Is that not incentive enough? Is it too vague? Offering people pocket change for cleaning up seems to sad for anything we can refer to as "stage 3".
