With the recent launch of Openai’s GPT chat bot, we’ve been spending some late nights testing it out. We ended up asking the AI some blockchain related questions to see how much it can dumb information down. Here is how the conversation went.
Explain the blockchain to me like I’m 5 years old
Sure! Imagine you have a stack of blocks, and each block has some information written on it. The blocks are all connected to each other like links in a chain. The information on each block is added to the block by a bunch of computers, and once the information is added, it’s very difficult to change. This makes the information on the blocks trustworthy and secure. That’s a very simple explanation of the blockchain! Does that make sense?
Yes, thank you. Can you please also explain what a decentralized currency is like I am 5 years old?
Sure! A decentralized currency is a type of money that isn’t controlled by any government or bank. This means that no one person or organization has the power to make decisions about the value of the currency or how it’s used. Instead, a decentralized currency is controlled by a network of computers, and anyone who has a computer can participate in this network. This makes the currency more fair and open, because everyone has an equal say in how it works. Does that make sense?
Great. What is a Decentralized Autonomous Organisation? Please explain it in the simplest way possible.
A Decentralized Autonomous Organization, or DAO, is a type of organization that is run using computer programs called smart contracts. These smart contracts automatically carry out the rules and instructions of the organization, without the need for any human intervention. This means that a DAO can operate without a central leader or authority figure, and decisions are made by the consensus of the members of the organization. Because a DAO is decentralized and autonomous, it can be highly efficient and transparent. Does that help?
Why is a decentralized system better than a centralized system?
There are a few reasons why a decentralized system might be better than a centralized one. First, a decentralized system is often more resilient and resistant to failure, because there isn’t a single point of failure that can bring down the entire system. This means that a decentralized system can continue to operate even if one of its parts fails. Second, a decentralized system can be more democratic and fair, because it doesn’t have a central authority that makes decisions for everyone. Instead, decisions are made by the consensus of the members of the system. And third, a decentralized system can be more transparent and accountable, because the rules and operations of the system are open and visible to everyone. This can help to build trust among the members of the system. Does that help?
What should we ask Openai next?
