Haven't read the Swarm thing, going more off of the general vibe of
these cryptocurrency related projects that keep popping up:
Using some kind of (optional) web of trust for clients makes more sense
to me than making people pay with cryptocurrencies.

I should be able to set up two computers on a LAN in the middle of
nowhere without having to care about some blockchain's global

NDN can do this right and has been able to for a while.
Personally, I would try that and other established non-ponzi
technologies first for distributed substitutes.
Not being "permissionless" should not be considered a must have.

I have some more thoughts about this but I really should be sleeping.  I
already spent way too much redrafting this email.
