I was responding to a comment proposing that the blockchain allows for trust, including in cases where credit card numbers would be currently exchanged. Based on the subsequent commentary, it seems blockchain based currency (Not all blockchain uses) currently provide me, as a consumer, less protection from fraud but more freedom to transact (Censorship and interference resistance, as you mentioned).

The above distinction, I believe, is important - I’m not objectively better off using one or the other, it depends completely on which scenario I’m more worried about.
