I have noticed a question pop up now and again on here, the PTS forum, reddit, and similar places.
The question is basically, "so I donate my PTS (or BTC) to the Angelshares address, then what?"
I have been considering this. And it brings me to the most remarkable concept of this technology. A concept that those of us on forums like this already take for granted.
Fundamentally, we just aren't used to this. When I pay my landlord rent in cash, I trust that he will not forget that I gave him his rent, lose the money, or outright lie. When I buy an Apple LISA on ebay, I trust that the person on the other end really is a person with an old computer and that they will send it to the address that I provide.
So how is it that I 'simply donate' my PTS or BTC for AGS? It doesn't compute. Shouldn't I be providing an email address? Shouldn't you be giving me a receipt? Or something? So I donate, and then what?
THERE IS NO THEN WHAT.
And that's why this tech can change everything.
