There are 2 main types of DLTs: permissionless (BTC, ETH) and permissioned. USDC would be a permissioned DLT in that the main operators of the blockchain have to be allowed to partake in it. They do exhibit similar characters such as consensus algorithms and such. In my opinion, permissioned DLTs are good for main intra-company use cases but not for a global store of value.
I believe that Bitcoin can be our savior if we fight to preserve its decentralized and anonymous aspects. People like Michael Saylor and Robert Breedlove are making a stand on these issues.
if we disrupt the pyramid scheme of fiat - that is one major pillar to topple!!
