This article was inspired by some of the of the conversations I’ve seen lately around HTTP vs HTTPS for the APIs that Block Producers are providing, which you as an EOS token holder will use to interact with the blockchain. The arguments generally boil down to one of these:
- I’ve got nothing to hide.
- Everything on the blockchain is public.
- It’s too expensive and difficult..
I argue that none of these arguments are relevant, in general or in the context of the EOS blockchain. The bottom line is that it’s not about hiding what you’re doing, it’s about making sure that no one can interfere with what you are doing.
