Welcome to Mars: I have everything, I have complete privacy and life has never been better

Welcome to Mars: I have everything, I have complete privacy and life has never been better – Mail Bonus

This is a parody of the article birt by the World Economic Forum entitled “Welcome to the year 2030. I have nothing, I have no privacy and life has never been better.”

Welcome to Mars. Welcome to my city, or should I say “our city” because I, like all other residents, am a stakeholder in it. No, I do not mean “shareholder”, as this is not a dystopian future run by private companies. My city on Mars has a decentralized government just like the big Mars. It is not a company or a military state. It is a collection of institutions run directly by the people.

As a result of this system, we have a police force that spreads peace instead of violence. We have a financial system that distributes wealth instead of creating poverty. We have institutions that are open instead of closed and transparent instead of secret, all of which make corruption almost impossible. Our institutions are from the bottom up and are managed by people instead of being on top and governing.

This may seem strange to you, living in a world where you can not afford a home, a proper health care or a good education. Because a small number of people have incredible powers that lead to widespread corruption, even in countries that are supposed to be “free and open”. This is because you live in a centralized world. You have two choices: a centralized private company or a centralized government with a monopoly on violence. We, on the other hand, live in a scattered city and in a scattered world.

Distributed government

In our world, it makes perfect sense for everyone to claim to own everything. Every product and service, at least one of the most important, is provided by a decentralized organization – an organization that no individual or group controls and in which anyone can acquire a share. Particularly important are organizations, such as those providing public goods, which are required by the constitution to have one vote. Which means that simply by living within the territory of the institution, you get an equal share in that institution and everyone else.

We have not simply met our basic needs; we live in an enough the world thanks to technology far beyond what you have on earth. This is because on Mars all technology is an open source, which means that there is incredible competition to develop new and innovative solutions, but also participation remains accessible to every single citizen. All of this is made possible thanks to an advanced financial management system introduced in 2022 that enabled people to benefit from the creation of open source software. That year, software (an open source itself) was released that made peer-to-peer (P2P) barrier-free economies accessible to everyone for free and spread rapidly through the virus.

Free smart contracts

The cornerstone of this system was free and upgradeable smart contracts. If you think about it, all of our communication and communication is governed by agreements, whether they are written down, worded or implied. Even money itself is just an agreement between the citizen and the state to provide a stable medium of exchange.

Earlier versions of these “blockchain networks” had been released, but they were often very wasteful (not suitable for the Martian economy) and required people to pay a fee for every little thing they did. Imagine we wanted to allow citizens to vote in popular blockchain elections so we could eliminate voter fraud. Forcing citizens to vote would create unacceptable barriers to participation and force the government to bear those costs would only reduce the resources it has available to provide its citizens with valuable services. If these issues are put aside, the more this platform was used, the more energy it would waste and energy is a valuable commodity on Mars.

However, this new platform was completely free and very efficient. Smart deals that allow people to vote, make different money and even share their thoughts publicly could all be created and used for free. Just as the free nature of the Internet had opened up a creative space for a whole new world of goods and services – even a whole new business model – the free nature of this blockchain opened up a similar creative space to an infinite variety of new solutions, which has propelled the technological revolution on Mars.

Although SpaceX apparently launched the first growth phase of Mars by relocating its first inhabitants, it was this blockchain that enabled these inhabitants to establish a completely new socio-economic system that led to an explosion in productivity at the same time as personal growth. freedom and privacy. .
