Chapter 18: Blockchain Democracy

Blockchain will affect the balance of power between citizens, states, and corporations. It will be as revolutionary for democracy as the original internet was.  This includes everything about the relationship between citizens and states, from the right citizens have to encryption and privacy, to their rights over their money and assets, to their management of their identities.  For states, Blockchain democracy means a greater ability to verify and secure the most important data involved in governance, from voting applications on a blockchain to verified tax records and titles.
