The homeland-as-a-service model: How blockchain will disrupt the world order


The homeland-as-a-service model

Fundamentally the homeland-as-a-service model implies it is ok to ask what your country can do for you — countries will have to begin to compete for the most qualified citizens by delivering better services and such advantages as a strong economy, a fair legal system, and robust social welfare programs. If the services are not competitive, people can shop around for alternatives. Blockchain is critical for this model to come to life, because distributed trust replaces the centralized authoritarian controls systems used by governments.

The change is already here

Though all this is possible, it will take 20–50 years for the underlying technologies to go mainstream. How will blockchain change governments in the more immediate future?
