    +1000 for removing decentralized wordpress.org.
    It was hacked before: https://wordpress.org/news/2007/03/upgrade-212/
    And Matt Mullenweg himself has advocated decentralization: https://wordpress.org/news/2003/11/blogrolling-hack-illustrates-need-for-decentralization/
    “as a weblogging community we should be heading away from centralization as a rule, not flocking to every free or low-cost centralized service that pops up.”

In this session, I will be discussing the possible applications of the blockchain, such as e-commerce payment gateways, identity management, and content monetisation.

As blockchain is inherently open source, the blockchain hype cycle could also have great influence over the popularity of WordPress. And so, in addition to exploring the big questions surrounding security and licensing, I will also be looking at the future possibilities of where WordPress and blockchain can go next.
