    2. I just looked up the article this is based on :) "It's failure to achieve adoption to date is because-" It's saying: The reason why blockchain isn't used by everyone till now is because- (adoption can mean "to start using or implementing") ("to date" means "until now") "-because systems built on trust, norms, and institutions inherently function better than-" con't: -because systems (processes or procedures) built on trust, norms, and instituions inherently work better than- ("build on" here means the system was developed and it grew with those traits or values.) (inhererent means something along the lines of "by nature" like "it just is". "inherently evil" -> "evil by nature".) "-work better than the type of no-need-for trusted parties systems blockchain envisions." meaning: -it works better than the "no-need-for-trusted-parties" systems that blockchain is going for. ----- I think this sentence sounds a lot more complicated because of the clauses and adjectives it uses. here's a simplified version: "the reason blockchain still isnt widely used is because systems that use trust, norms and institutions work better than the system blockchain uses. and just incase, here's an unrelated sentence using the same structure but with a different topic: "vegetables aren't kids' favourite food to till now because flavors like sweet, and salty taste better than the healthy and fiber-y taste that vegetables provide"

    2. @seopira fair point. Yes you could say "go". "enter" comes from "entrance" such as "entrance exam". So either is correct. I try not to make it too complicated.

    2. This is the best I can do with it. As long as *it's* not a strong dialect, we can understand Swiss German quite well. This is basically the same as with all dialects (e.g. Bavarian dialects, Low German). Personally, I think it's stupid to write *in a strong dialect* since there are no rules for it. Nobody will be able to tell you whether something is right or not because there is no *standard*. In this context, I think "standard" is a better translation for "Maßstab".

    2. Hi! I must admit I am not sure I will be totally correct, but I will point out some of your mistakes! Firstly, I think you mean to say “role model wanted” instead of “authority wanted”. The word ‘role model / leader’ is more appropriate to be used in your writing. ‘Authorities’ is usually used for the government. If you want to use the word ‘authority’ for a person, you can say ‘He has a lot of authority over (somebody).’ ROLE MODEL WANTED It is said that nowadays, it is hard to find people who can be role models for teenagers. (Use the word “leaders” instead of “authorities”.) Back then, people with incredible talent had ethical standards. However, now it appears that people who have achieved success and fame do not have any rules or limits. (Use the word ‘however’ to show that there is a difference between the past and now.) So whose example can the teenagers follow to avoid the destruction of humanity? (The use of “who’s is wrong. The correct word should be “whose”. “Who’s” means who is.)(Use “can” instead of “could”.)(It is “the” destruction of humanity not “a”.) The fact is, times are changing, and so are the norms. (“Lifestyle’s norms” sounds awkward to me.) Sometimes, what is unacceptable for an older person can be completely normal for a younger person. We cannot treat the life in the () way. (We can (I don’t understand this part.) our style upon person X, our diet upon person Y and our way of writing poems upon person Z. (“Writting” is wrong. The word is spelt with one t.) The development of the economy causes endless possibilities. (The article “the” is needed before the word “economy”. The word “enormous” means big, I think you mean many so I have used here the word “endless”.) Thanks to that, no matter what you are interested in, you can find some people who have obtained the master level in that field on the Internet. (“Whatever you are” instead of “whatever are you”. It is better to use “no matter what you are”. Use the word “field” instead of “branch”. It is “on” the Internet, not “in”.) Unavoidably, you admire those people / that person. You realise (I don’t understand what you mean.) (“Realise” is British, “realize” is American.) This type of people usually love to share their passion (knowledge and experience) with others. They make you understand that "yes, you can do it too, it is possible". The indisputable role model in the dance field that I have looked up to, for ages, is Galen Hooks. She is a dancer and choreographer from Los Angeles. Her choreographies on YouTube, which includes original dance moves, have intrigued me. Previously, I had never seen before, such precision and perfection of workmanship and acting in dance. When I had my first pleasure to take her classes, I saw a huge passion in her. While teaching us, she gave us precious tokens of advice (“Tokens of advice” is a common phrase. Learn to use it.) and remarks which I then analysed and regularly followed to correct the quality of my movements. She is my number one. To sum up, in our times, there are many more people who can be role models for teenagers than ever before in various fields, mainly thanks to the Internet. (Use “many” instead of “more”.) However we have to remember to choose wisely only the best characteristics of our role model to be inspired by. (“Use our brains” can be replaced with “wisely”.) Please ask if you have any questions.

    2. Nice writing. You seem well-versed in english so I'll spare you (and myself) the pain of going into detail. 1) so that all the participants more likely get their orders * This should be "will more likely" 2) at a time and make a "cheers" call all together." * I think you mean "all at the same time.*" * We don't use "cheers call" in the west. We say "raise one's glass (to)" 3) Even though I don't like either beers or such a norm, * beer (it should be singular) * "or the like" instead of "or such a norm" 4) I give up on what I really order for the efficiency and harmony * I give up my personal preference in order to maintain group harmony 5) "being reserved and giving a way to others are regarded as" * I think (??) this should be "being reserved and giving a way to others IS regarded as" (singular) 6) "that this concept functions to avoid unwanted conflicts" * "Function" sounds unnatural. Perhaps "this concept is designed to minimize any conflict". 7) "to maximize the happiness both of individuals and the society." * to maximize the happiness of both individuals and society.
