This is a parody of the article printed by the World Economic Forum titled “Welcome to 2030. I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy And Life Has Never Been Better.”

Welcome to Mars. Welcome to my metropolis, or ought to I say “our metropolis” as a result of I, like each different inhabitant, is a stakeholder in it. No, I don’t imply “shareholder,” as this isn’t a dystopian future run by personal corporations. My metropolis on Mars has a decentralized governance construction similar to the higher Mars. It just isn’t an organization neither is it a militarized state. It is a set of establishments ruled instantly by The People.

As a results of this technique, we’ve police that unfold peace as a substitute of violence. We have monetary methods that unfold wealth as a substitute of making poverty. We have establishments which might be open as a substitute of closed and clear as a substitute of secret, all of which makes corruption virtually not possible. Our establishments are bottom-up and people-powered as a substitute of top-down and authoritarian.

This may appear odd to you, dwelling in a world the place you possibly can’t afford a house, respectable healthcare or high quality training. Where a tiny variety of folks have unimaginable energy resulting in widespread corruption, even in supposedly “free and open” nations. This is since you reside in a centralized world. You have two decisions: centralized personal firms or centralized governments with a monopoly on violence. We, however, reside in a decentralized metropolis and in a decentralized world.

Decentralized authorities

In our world, it makes excellent sense for everybody to say they personal all the things. Every product and repair, at the very least the entire most vital ones, is offered by a decentralized group — a corporation that nobody individual or group controls and that anybody can purchase a stake in. Especially vital are the organizations, like people who present public items, which might be required by the structure to be ruled by one-person-one-vote. Meaning that just by residing inside that group’s territory, you obtain an equal stake in that group to everybody else.

We don’t merely have our primary wants met; we reside in an plentiful world due to expertise far past what you may have on Earth. This is as a result of on Mars, all expertise is open supply, which means that there’s unimaginable competitors to develop new and revolutionary options but in addition participation stays accessible to each single citizen. All of that is made doable due to a sophisticated monetary working system that emerged in 2022 that enabled folks to revenue from the creation of open-source software program. That yr, a chunk of software program (itself open supply) was launched that made a peer-to-peer (P2P) financial system with no boundaries to entry accessible to everybody without spending a dime and shortly unfold virally.

Fee-less sensible contracts

The foundational aspect of this technique was fee-less and upgradeable sensible contracts. If you concentrate on it, all of our interactions and exchanges are managed by contracts, whether or not they’re written down, verbalized or implied. Even cash itself is only a contract between the citizen and the State to offer a secure medium of change.

Earlier variations of those “blockchain networks” had been launched, however they have been usually very energetically wasteful (which isn’t appropriate for the Mars financial system) and required folks to pay charges for each little factor they did. Imagine that we wished to permit residents to solid their votes in standard elections on a blockchain in order that we may remove voter fraud. Forcing residents to pay to solid votes would erect unacceptable boundaries to participation and forcing the federal government to shoulder that value would solely lower the capital it has accessible to ship beneficial companies to its residents. Putting these points apart, the extra used this platform grew to become, the extra vitality it will waste, and vitality is a valuable commodity on Mars.

Smart contracts that allowed folks to solid votes, create totally different varieties of cash and even share their ideas publicly may all be created and used without spending a dime. Just because the fee-less nature of the web had opened a inventive area for a completely new universe of services — even completely new enterprise fashions — the fee-less nature of this blockchain opened up an analogous inventive areas for an infinite number of new options, which is what has pushed the technological revolution on Mars.

While SpaceX clearly triggered the preliminary development part of Mars by transporting its early inhabitants, it was this blockchain that enabled these inhabitants to ascertain a completely new socio-economic system that led to an explosion of productiveness whereas on the identical time rising private freedom and privateness.
