But the crucial bit is that a blockchain is public-key-signed transactions on top of a DHT. So I might not be able to make a particular transaction happen on a blockchain, but if it lists a transaction as having occurred then it did occur. So it doesn't prove everything and it can do things (good, bad, or neutral) in addition to proofs, but the things it lists as proved are actually proved.
