Dear tweeps: a race is where there are multiple competitors, and the question is which one is fastest. What's a familiar situation where there are multiple candidates, and the question is which ones qualify vs disqualify? (I'm writing a twitter thread about benchmarking.)

i came to crypto to correct the main issues in the traditional system. infinite supply —> fixed supply transparent monitoring transaction systems (credit/debit card, PayPal, Venmo etc.) —> user protected system (Zcash) Everything else is a distraction.
