I have been thinking a lot about trust. The core component of all relationships large and small is trust. Blockchain is supposed to “automate” trust. As crazy as that may sound, I sure do hope it holds, ahem, true.
Specifically as it relates to our daily lives, digital rights management, meaning access to Hulu, Disney+, Netflix and other subscription services. IBM has been working on a solutions for organizations to create their own distributed ledger for (hopefully) undisputed transaction management and for content access security.
So, is this level of trust adequate? Are blockchain capabilities with the undisputed ledger system scalable and reliable to the fullest extend in business and commerce transactions? Time will tell and I hope that its enough.
