Replacing Institutions with Technology

Most would agree that our institutions have flaws and aren’t perfect solutions. But they do solve problems of trust, and they’ve been doing it for hundreds of years. In fact, we’re probably living in the most peaceful, comfortable era in human history. Any alternative to our current institutions needs to have clear advantages and strength.The idea behind blockchain is to replace institutions with technology that can do the job better and empowers individuals. If you could create a way for strangers to trust one another without needing a bank or a government as an intermediary, you’d tackle one of society’s biggest bottlenecks. But in order to do so, you’d need a powerful system for creating consensus between strangers, and the creators of blockchain believe that power lies in decentralization.Basically all applications of blockchain (and other cryptographic technologies) are based around the concept of decentralization. Instead of a rigid, slow central authority making decisions and governing relationships, blockchain seeks to return regulatory power back to the individuals. Instead of trusting a major institution, blockchain builds trust through consensus.

A New Technological Paradigm

The foundation of all blockchain and cryptographic technology is the peer-to-peer network.Traditionally, when we think about trust we think of institutions as the middleman. Right now, if I wanted to send you $100, we’d need to use a bank transfer:

First, I’d submit the transfer to the bank.
Next, my bank would take a percentage fee to process the transaction
My bank verifies that I have $100 in my account
My bank asks your bank if your account is valid and open for deposits
My bank updates its ledger of accounts to subtract $100 from my account
Your bank updates its ledger to add $100 to your account.
