@BruceJia@refactorcamp.org @zacharius I like it, although verifying location would be a major hassle without the satellites being linked into the blockchain in some way to prevent spoofing etc. Is there such a thing as verified location? I think smart contracts can't be done for important decisions but perhaps I just lack the foresight.

@duane @BruceJia@refactorcamp.org @zacharius an interesting read, however I doubt it's feasible the way they're suggesting (mesh networks), it seems more likely we'll have to wait for GPS OCX until provable positioning will possible. Plus, imagine having to pay every time you wanted to prove your location. I think we really need to figure out the energy/climate issues and whatnot before we start plonking IoT devices everywhere and making them hash away, massive waste of electricity given our current state. Still interesting
