Amazon DynamoDB

What are the positive and negatives of Amazon entering this space. With honest objectivity, how does it stack up against Cardano? Also, is it even the same potential market(s)?

My first impression is this brings blockchain to the masses in a way only a large company can. On a whole, it legitimizes blockchain (to me) to a whole host of uninformed folks…

I am not sure what part of DynamoDB you find analogous to block chain.

It’s a replicated NOSQL column-based database, much like Cassandra. It still requires central control. Encrypted data in the database is not the same as how cryptographic validation is used in block chains.

Thanks for the clarification. I did not feel it was analogous to blockchain pre se, probably not written clearly. I desired an advanced explanation such as the one provided. Much appreciated, and something for me to learn.
