And so that's a huge difference. Like with Tellor, we focus on that Bitcoin style quality where decentralized is our number one priority and censorship-resistance is our number one priority. So you know, in a nutshell we feel that we're the decentralized option between the two.” [00:04:49]“The problem is, is that, you know, at Coinbase for instance, they just started an oracle service where they sign the price every so often and you can grab it and say, 'Hey, this was the price at Coinbase.' The problem with that is Coinbase can at any point stop doing that. There's no guarantee that they will continue to do that.” [00:07:42]“Now you have to stake a 1,000 TRB and you can only mine one value per hour. And the reason that we're moving to that is, any sort of minor centralization can sort of be, if you want to own 90% of our hash power, you're going to have to own a whole lot of our token as well.” [00:15:25]LinksTellor - - (TRB) on CoinGecko - MediaTellor:

While the Delta network, we build the architecture in such a way that there are different modules that you can plug in and plug out at the same time but in an open environment.” [00:10:20]“And how to lease it to delegator? Literally one button. So you just have it in your mainnet wallet, you press 'lease', and you press the address of the delegator, that's it.” [00:26:09]“Let's start with the fact that crypto is still only an investor base and there are very few users who use. So everything people touch and do, is their belief in the future of one or the other product.
