Distributed vs Decentralized blockchain
There is a big misconception between distributed and decentralized blockchains in the crypto landscape. Distributed blockchains are not necessarily decentralized by nature. Decentralization imply the blockchain to not be owned by the same entity.
Decentralization which has for objective censorship resistance is the essence of why crypto-currencies have been started at the first place. If you are a true believer in this technology, this is the only criterion you should care about.
Fees may be high, transactions quite slow but that’s the price to pay for real decentralization. Forget about “Peer-to-Peer electronic cash” and think about $BTC as unconfiscatable store of value.
