UKpol stuff / tech / thread i guess
One of the funniest things I heard about the UK age verification scheme last year was one of the companies bragging about using blockchain.
I'm going to oversimplify things but, isn't blockchain essentially a _public_ ledger? Like, in cryptocurrency it verifies a block of that currency all the way to someone's wallet, right?
Why would age verification need something that's essentially a public database for something intended to be as private as possible?
