Does anyone else find it a bother, worrisome how much their software projects are dependent on the Internet to be built, set up?

Is there just a huge potential for... What do they call it... Bitrot? Vaporwarification of all source code because old package servers go offline, change, etc? Tools disappear or change?

Just thought of this. Also earlier today I downloaded some piece of software through archive.org.

Like one thing that bothers me: It still appears to be using PoW? So is it still fuelling the egregious power consumption and hardware abuse as Bitcoin? Of course on a smaller scale, but what will happen if gets as big as Bitcoin?

So, I've now heard a couple of what I'd call knowledgeable people talk about . Can some (fanboy or not) explain me what it is *technically*? Like, is it a blockchain? How does it work? How does it establish trust? And how does it differ from Bitcoin? How does it solve the issue of the latter?
