Hey everyone, I'm studying blockchain for a while now, but the more I look into the theme, more questions appear.

For now, my top questions are:

If blockchain has a decentralized structure and operates without an intermediary, how does blockchain companies make money?

Other question is on the incumbents of the payments system. We see Visa and MasterCard investing in the technology. How can it make sense to a network company to invest in a decentralized settlement structure when their business model relies on processing payments?

Well, Decentralized Organizations make money off the services enabled by decentralized networks, one thing that helped me was being able to separate the organizations that create and help maintain these networks vs the companies that offer services on top of these networks.

I'm not so sure social networks are going to be what breaks things open in the crypto space. Hyper competitive and value prop isn't enough to pull from an established network
