“Blockchain” and “religion”, one is endorsed by technology, the other is in the name of faith. There seems to be no relationship between the two, but in fact they are deeply related and closely intertwined at the core.
In a way, blockchain is religion.
This conclusion dates back to 2018 . Crypto entrepreneur Matt Liston and artist Avery Singer have launched a blockchain church. The church, called 0xΩ, is a consensus protocol used by the Ethereum blockchain, and church members who buy 0xΩ stakes can vote on what form best reflects their religious identity. In practical applications, it can help collectives manage donations more democratically, achieve consensus, and better select loyal leaders.
At first glance, this matter may seem a bit novel, but it is by no means the first of the thesis that “blockchain is a religion”, and many things have long been foreshadowed: the mysterious identity of Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto has already made it a Some kind of spiritual power; Roger Vail, the proudest promoter of Bitcoin Cash, openly declared himself “Bitcoin Jesus ”; Vitalik Buterin, one of Ethereum’s leading figures Buterin ‘s image is printed on the sticker with a radiant halo on his head. The founder of the cryptocurrency Zcash called the coin launch ceremony “Ceremony”, and also arranged for 5 anonymous “witnesses”…

Disciples are of course related to religion, but they are by no means inheriting all religious beliefs including Christianity , Buddhism , and Islam in real life . Instead , they use blockchain technology and communities to conduct decentralized preaching to create a Web3.0-based The concept of the rules of decentralized smart contracts has become a real “blockchain religion “.
One thing about Disciples’ discipleship system can subvert traditional religious systems; there is no longer a need for a supreme ruling authority. The teachings and decisions of many traditional religions are formulated and delivered from the top down. In other words, it is difficult for ordinary believers to have a substantial impact on the core teachings of the religion. But at Disciples, it is the 72 disciples at the bottom who can ultimately decide the direction and core concept of operation . The 72 disciples will be the heirs and defenders of the “blockchain idea” , dedicated to spreading and passing on the faith . This is the power from the people, and it is also the greatest power.
7 2 Although the disciples were ordinary people, they all possessed great wisdom and great structure. They are reluctant to have titles like ” encryption prophets ” and ” encryption saviors “, but instead encourage and advocate the sharing of ideas, forming a collective consciousness structure through consensus. And this is the uniqueness of Disciples’ “disciple religion”.
