The abstracted irony of a centrally enabled, decentralized collaboration network is not lost on us. However we feel this has been sufficiently resolved through i. specification of digital services as engagement facilitation and blockchain registration with no control over content nor collaborative completion; ii. limitation of payment exchange as firstly purely optional and secondly transferable between members; iii. zero artificial intelligence collating user data, amongst other privacy guarantees and; iv. the Real-World Smart Contract® as a member controlled decentralized, asynchronous crypto-corroborate.
Mainstream debates and reporting around decentralized technologies, including cryptocurrencies, often entirely miss the point. A most incredible reality now facing the planet is that, for the first time, open definitions of assets in collaborations can be used as guaranteed methods of decentralized exchange absent centralized control, restriction and or collective influence. Tangible value, payment actually exchanged in any form, individually may be legally bound to and solely determined between collaborative participants.
It is no longer a question of what value the centralized currency you hold is said to have. In its place this becomes what value do you wish to provide or secure. It is the first decentralized, global trusted barter coordination in history. The extent and implications of this can be said to be entirely up to your imaginations.
