I have been giving a lot of thought to the potential of a FutureGen blockchain type technology, the cryptographic protocols behind Bitcoin. I think it is much too interesting to limit to something as mundane as money. I have already been thinking about its potential to link populations together as distributed nations.
But the idea of an blockchain facilitated arbitration system with a transparent contract system is something I haven’t thought of before. With blockchain transparently validating contracts and providing double blind arbitration according to locked in terms, the potential is vast here.
