Frequently, when I talk to people about the Global Commons Trust / Stewardship System concept, if they have an interest in blockchain they will very quickly suggest (sometimes strongly!) that the GCT/SS needs a cryptocurrency and/or to be built on the blockchain.
So far, I’ve not been able to understand this assertion … perhaps because I do not have sufficient understanding of what blockchain uniquely enables, or perhaps because those making the assertion are viewing the GCT/SS concept as being something different than it is … or, well, who knows?
So I want to raise the question here, for anyone who would like to tackle it:
Is the blockchain a necessary (or even especially desirable) technology for the GCT/SS?
