Blockchain ? Oh yeah, that thing that keeps growing and growing and ...

A file that everyone has to have to be able to use the functionality, file which grows ever larger until you need a fiber conection and a multi-terabyte disk if you're a latecomer. No to mention transaction delays and, in the case of Bitcoin, insane transaction fees.

Frankly, I'd think a central database would be a much more simple affair. You have to be connected anyway, in order to upload your addition to the blockchain, so what's the difference ?
