Trust has always been a key instrument of economics. Up until recently, central banks have acted as the metaphorical custodian of trust, employing complex processes that force populations to participate in bank accounts and credit cards to earn trust benefits, like credit scores. Yet, devastating moments such as the 2008 U.S. financial crisis that took an enormous taxpayer-funded bailout showed the same centralized and slow processes were weakening and could not adapt quickly enough in a digital economy. Further, banks have become the number one target for malicious hackers. As a result, banking systems, credit rating agencies and other traditional legal instruments no longer remain effective mechanisms for P2P reputation and trust measurement.
