Distributed uncensorable p2p code repositories, networks,
markets, exchanges, and coins... encryption, privacy... all
often mentioned as required elements of the crypto revolution. censorship a recent example of obvious need
for truly distributed uncensorable version control systems.

Git relies on a single point of failure authoritative rollup database repo,
git is not a truly distributed VCS, and its usability semantics break down
horribly when tasked to route around censorship by going into user-to-user
manual comms mode.

A true DVCS might end up achieving consensus over the state of the database.

Distributed VCS and distributed filesystems and distributed databases,
all similar problems.
