仁兄的翻译:硅谷Angel List创始人对区块链与隐藏其中的ICO的论述

今日把AngelList创始人Naval Ravikant的推文翻一下,揣摩一下,与君共勉一下。

翻译后总的感受就是硅谷的投资人,投资区块链的第二波投资人开始进场了,学会以ICO的方式投资区块链了。

以下为翻译,第一部分全部为中文。

===================================== 

1/ Blockchain区块链将使用市场替代网络链接。

2/ 人类是网络链接过的物种。第一个跨越遗传边界的物种(通过通信技术),从而统治了世界。

3 /网络允许我们合作,否则我们会独自一人。网络体系会分配我们合作后形成的果实。

4重叠的网络机构创建和组织我们的社会。物理,数字和精神上的道路连接我们所有人。

5/货币系统是一个网络。宗教是一个网络。一家公司是一个网络。道路系统是一个网络。电力系统是一个网络...

6/ 网络必须按照规则进行组织。他们要求统治者执行这些规则。惩罚骗子。

7/网络具有“网络效应”。网络中增加新参与者可以增加所有现有参与者的价值。

8/ 网络效应因此创造了一个赢家通吃。领先的网络往往成为唯一的网络。

9/ 这些网络的统治者成为社会中最有势力的人物。

10/ 有些系统被国王和牧师管理,他们选择什么是金钱和法律,确定神圣的和亵渎的。规则对外界不利和内向坍塌的,依靠暴力维护。

11许多系统由公司经营。比如社交网络、搜索门户、电话系统或有线网络。封闭但最初是用人唯贤。

12/ 有些是由精英经营的。比如大学系统,医疗网络,银行网络。有点开放,有点用人唯贤。

13/ 少数由乌合之众管理。比如民主体系,互联网系统,公共领域。开放但不能用人唯贤,而且效率很低。

14/ 争斗时,专制滥权比民主协商更有效率。比如垃圾邮件充斥的互联网,和被滥用超载物理公共空间。

15/ 世纪20世纪创建了一种新型的网络系统:市场。开放与用人唯贤。

16/ 市场的优点取决于资源承诺。资源是金钱,一种冷冻和交易时间的形式。

17/ 市场系统是巨人。信贷市场,股市,大宗商品市场,外汇市场。他们打破国家的边界。

18 /市场体系只能在确认的货币体系中工作。否则他们只是乌合之众。应用有限。

19 /直到现在

20 /区块链是一种新的发明,它允许开放网络中的贤能的参与者在没有统治者的情况下进行管理,不需要货币系统。

21他们是基于优点的,防篡改的,公开的,投票制的。

22/ 有才能的人为了推进系统发展而努力。

23/ 当社会给你钱当你给社会给它想要的东西,社会奖励你货币。当你给区块链系统它要的东西时,区块链系统给你硬币。

24重要的是要注意,区块链是以自己的硬币支付,而不是金融市场的常见的美元。

25 / Blockchains用代币支付,但代币只是追踪完成的工作量。不同的区块链需要不同的工作测量代币。

26 /比特币奖励加固账本的行为。 Ethereum奖励(执行和验证)计算行为。

27 / Blockchains将民主和互联网体现的开放性,与市场体系的优点相结合。

28对于一个区块链系统,优点意味着安全性,计算能力,预测里,注意力,带宽,功率,存储,分发,内容...

29 / 区块链系统将市场模式引入到不可能去的地方。

30 / 所代表的开放和优质的市场可以取代之前由国王,公司,贵族和乌合之众运营的网络。

31/ 没有代币的区块链是无意义的,就像没有钱的市场一样。

32由一个主权国家,一个公司,一个精英或一个乌合之众控制的区块链系统,那是荒谬的。

33区块链系统给我们新的方式来管理网络系统,比如银行业务,投票,搜索,社交媒体,以及电话和电力网络。

34没有国王,牧师,精英,公司和乌合之众的干涉,网络被管理。网络被任何对网络价值的人员管理。

35 /基于区块链的市场网络将取代现有网络。慢慢地,然后突然。一件事,然后在许多事情发生。

最终,民族国家只是一个网络链接。

最后/谢谢Satoshi Nakomoto。谢谢那些Satoshi站过所有智者。

 

仁兄注:感谢硅谷王川老兄的指引,使我得到一些验证。

1/ Blockchains will replace networks with markets.

1/ Blockchain区块链将使用市场替代网络链接。

2/ Humans are the networked species. The first species to network across genetic boundaries and thus seize the world.

2/ 人类是网络链接过的物种。第一个跨越遗传边界的物种(通过通信技术),从而统治了世界。

3/ Networks allow us to cooperate when we would otherwise go it alone. And networks allocate the fruits of our cooperation.

3 /网络允许我们合作,否则我们会独自一人。网络体系会分配我们合作后形成的果实。

4/ Overlapping networks create and organize our society. Physical, digital, and mental roads connecting us all.

4重叠的网络机构创建和组织我们的社会。物理,数字和精神上的道路连接我们所有人。

5/ Money is a network. Religion is a network. A corporation is a network. Roads are a network. Electricity is a network...

5/货币系统是一个网络。宗教是一个网络。一家公司是一个网络。道路系统是一个网络。电力系统是一个网络...

6/ Networks must be organized according to rules. They require Rulers to enforce these rules. Against cheaters.

6/ 网络必须按照规则进行组织。他们要求统治者执行这些规则。惩罚骗子。

7/ Networks have "network effects." Adding a new participant increases the value of the network for all existing participants.

7/网络具有“网络效应”。网络中增加新参与者可以增加所有现有参与者的价值。

8/ Network effects thus create a winner-take-all dynamic. The leading network tends towards becoming the only network.

8/ 网络效应因此创造了一个赢家通吃。领先的网络往往成为唯一的网络。

9/ And the Rulers of these networks become the most powerful people in society.

9/ 这些网络的统治者成为社会中最强大的人物。

10/ Some are run by kings and priests who choose what is money and law, sacred and profane. Rule is closed to outsiders and based on power.

10/ 有些系统被国王和牧师管理,他们选择什么是金钱和法律,确定神圣的和亵渎的。规则对外界不利和内向坍塌的,依靠暴力维护。

11/ Many are run by corporations. The social network. The search network. The phone or cable network. Closed but initially meritocratic.

11许多系统由公司经营。比如社交网络、搜索门户、电话系统或有线网络。封闭但最初是用人唯贤。

12/ Some are run by elites. The university network. The medical network. The banking network. Somewhat open and somewhat meritocratic.

12/ 有些是由精英经营的。比如大学系统,医疗网络,银行网络。有点开放,有点用人唯贤。

13/ A few are run by the mob. Democracy. The Internet. The commons. Open, but not meritocratic. And very inefficient.

13/ 少数由乌合之众管理。比如民主体系,互联网系统,公共领域。开放但不能用人唯贤,而且效率很低。

14/ Dictatorships are more efficient in war than democracies. The Internet and physical commons are overloaded with abuse and spam.

14/ 争斗时,专制滥权比民主协商更有效率。比如垃圾邮件充斥的互联网,和被滥用超载物理公共空间。

15/ The 20th century created a new kind of network - market networks. Open AND meritocratic.

15/ 世纪20世纪创建了一种新型的网络系统:市场。开放与用人唯贤。

16/ Merit in markets is determined by a commitment of resources. The resource is money, a form of frozen and trade-able time.

16/ 市场的优点取决于资源承诺。资源是金钱,一种冷冻和交易时间的形式。

17/ The market networks are titans. The credit markets. The stock markets. The commodities markets. The money markets. They break nations.

18/ Market networks work where there is a commitment of money. Otherwise they are just mob networks. The applications are limited.

19/ Until now.

19 /直到现在

20/ Blockchains are a new invention that allows meritorious participants in an open network to govern without a ruler and without money.

20 /区块链是一种新的发明,它允许开放网络中的贤能的参与者在没有统治者的情况下进行管理,不需要货币系统。

21/They are merit-based, tamper-proof, open, voting systems.

21他们是基于优点的,防篡改的,公开的,投票制的。

22/ The meritorious are those who work to advance the network.

22/ 有才能的人为了推进系统发展而努力。

23/ As society gives you money for giving society what it wants, blockchains give you coins for giving the network what it wants.

23/ 当社会给你钱当你给社会给它想要的东西,社会奖励你货币。当你给区块链系统它要的东西时,区块链系统给你硬币。

24/ It's important to note that blockchains pay in their own coin, not the common (dollar) money of financial markets.

24重要的是要注意,区块链是以自己的硬币支付,而不是金融市场的常见的美元。

25/ Blockchains pay in coin, but the coin just tracks the work done. And different blockchains demand different work.

25 / Blockchains用代币支付,但代币只是追踪完成的工作量。不同的区块链需要不同的工作测量代币。

26/ Bitcoin pays for securing the ledger. Ethereum pays for (executing and verifying) computation.

26 /比特币奖励加固账本的行为。 Ethereum奖励(执行和验证)计算行为。

27/ Blockchains combine the openness of democracy and the Internet with the merit of markets.

27 / Blockchains将民主和互联网体现的开放性,与市场体系的优点相结合。

28/ To a blockchain, merit can mean security, computation, prediction, attention, bandwidth, power, storage, distribution, content...

32/ It's nonsensical to have a blockchain controlled by a sovereign, a corporation, an elite, or a mob.

32由一个主权国家,一个公司,一个精英或一个乌合之众控制的区块链系统,那是荒谬的。

33区块链系统给我们新的方式来管理网络系统,比如银行业务,投票,搜索,社交媒体,以及电话和电力网络。

34/ Networks governed without kings, priests, elites, corporations and mobs. Networks governed by anyone with merit to the network.
