Our agreements will be our organizing structures.

The key insight here is that blockchain, as a distributed systems technology, provides a mechanism for solving a set of coordination and consensus problems that were previously intractable. In a nutshell, blockchains use a combination of cryptography, economic incentives and batched transactions to allow a global consensus about the order and effect of writes to a shared append-only database.

consensus ness

What does blockchain technology give us? I’d argue that it’s the ability to reach agreement.

why – in today’s age/capabilities.. must we reach agreement..? why can’t we just go on where your whimsy takes you that day.. ie: can’t our curiosities be our org structures..?

ie: hlb via 2 convos that io dance.. as the day..[aka: not part\ial.. for (blank)’s sake…]..  a nother way

And agreements, ultimately, are about restricting flexibility: our freedom to do as we please is limited by our need to fulfil our obligations under the agreements we have made

? who decided this.. who consented to this..?.. why restrict flexibility..? why not do whatever..?

why do we assume relationships have obligations..?
