There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

So what does this tell us? Of the ten listed there, the technology they introduced weren't exactly special or groundbreaking. But the investors backing them? Big, big money that allows for intense marketing. That tells us, these start ups boomed exactly because the hype they built up propelled their prices. This simply means, check back with these companies in 2019 and tell us if they made good on their products. Okay except for Blockstream and Bitwala in my opinion, who already have a huge userbase, the rest are just boosted prices. Still can't compare to actual technological advances that reach real world use.

With the rise of a handful of big tech companies and the government's use of technology to spy on its citizens, more and more people think that technology is actually a means of centralization. There is, of course, a tendency to reverse the trend, like encryption and electronic money, and they put power back into the hands of the people. But there is a risk that it is hard to manage. I am very interested in the positive and negative effects of these technologies, and I want to know how best to use these technologies for human services.
