Antifragility is a property of systems that increase in capability, resilience, or robustness as a result of stressors, shocks, volatility, noise, mistakes, faults, attacks, or failures. It is a concept developed by Professor Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book, Antifragile and in technical papers.
It applies to any CRYPTOCURRENCY in that a coin's main platform must be frequently stress-tested as it matures, otherwise the live production will break unexpectedly, maybe with disastrous results. Sometimes, like an exchange being severely hacked, it can mean the end of that platform.
