The Inventor of the Merkle Tree Wants DAOs to Rule the World

The inventor of the cryptographic tool at the heart of all blockchain technology has spent the last decade or so working in the fields of quantum computers and molecular printing to make technology that can fight disease and prolong human life. Ralph Merkle and his peers in the field of nanotechnology are exploring ways to use viruses and other techniques to build microscopically tiny machines capable of assembling molecules at the atomic level, a process called molecular manufacturing. In this nascent industry, machines that exist at this tiny scale could theoretically be used to assemble molecules atom by atom with potential applications that include affordable quantum computers, new forms of storing energy and semi-automated medical treatments from tiny implanted machines. But as Merkle's work has progressed, the winner of the 1998 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology for th...
