I’m looking for people to discuss the future and adoption at large of a technologies like cardano.
I’m looking to participate in constructive debates evolving around blockchain technologies adoption in large and preferably with a scientific approach. I think it’s important to discuss ideas, even if things are not always very focused, it still helps build a diverse (and there more decentralized and resilient) community.
I’m also looking for a space to formulate my ideas about technological development in the world in, I hope, a comprehensible way.
That been said, what you say concerning the facial recognition mobile phone may not be true because it would probably cost too much money.
Here’s more on the context. I am faced with a real world adoption problem. On one side I have a few big cacao exporters (or government agencies) who want to interact directly with the farmers. On the other side, there are ten or hundred of thousands (or million) farmers who dropped out of school before been able to read and write correctly. Both side would like to avoid intermediaries. Most farmers don’t have a bank account. Big companies don’t want to pay for millions of smart phone to put in place their payment or traceability programme, and I guess farmers need a technology apparently not much changing the way they are used to do things.
Also I think it would be an error to treat individual ‘individually’ forgetting that we are a “social specie”. We nee to rely on trust among people of the same community, like I need to trust our good intention when communicating over this channel. Relying on trust with strangers has its draw back and they are trying to be addressed by the blockchains, but setting up a system encouraging individualistic behaviour and not pushing for trust at the local level can be disastrous. I mean, think of what a family would be if every of their transaction should be signed with a private key…
Therefore I need to help both local farmers and “global efficiency”. I’m looking for a system which can handle divers degree of trust without forcing the adoption of an entirely trustless system. That is the context of my situation.
What I ask, and share here, are ideas to build such a system starting with how to have it adopted by the farmers without employing force or an authority argument (government). I think that if something is useful and easy then it is adopted. In my context Cardano is useful if it can be made easy to use even if it diminished or transfer some of the security at local trusted level (ex. a village chief or farmer cooperative).
I think that we human have by nature the ability to organise in a decentralised way when population density is low. in Agricultural area, population density is usually lower so I think we need to map cardano’s decentralisation paradigm on the existing decentralisation when the network inter-acts with local farmers, but at the other end, on the big companies side, we keep focused on privacy and security issues.
Voice or biophysical markes seem the most sensible way to secure individual wallets even if those wallets are held by a local cooperative.
