Hybridization
The idea of the "private" and "industry shared/private" blockchains is, ironically, paradoxical to the underlying idea/theory of blockchain -- in that the technology, being inherently "trustless," is theoretically more trustworthy because it relies on algorithms and distributed computing instead of a centralized authority who can potentially manipulate (or, for that matter, be used to manipulate should the centralized authority become breached/compromised).  And, yet, compliance and other "best-practice" dictates require (or, at least, are interpreted to require) that centralized authority be in charge.

Obviously, something is better than nothing, so it would seem.  But it's a bit funny how these hybrid blockchains have evolved and come to be.

circle of trust
This may be one of the most important aspect of blockchain. Trust relationship between users and banks also users and users.

Agree. For the fact that encryption strategies have their own flaws.

I would agree with you. That does not mean we need to give up.

Digital identity
 

Ultimate goal of Digital identity should be identifying a person by staying anonymous. A challenge we need to achieve.

Re: Security failed
Probably it depends on how you use the internet and what virtual identity you get. Not everything is so transparent as you'd expect.

Security failed
I think the idea of internet or online security is fake. Better say a huge lie. There is always someone who follows every step and any click you do.
