With Conditional Pledging we also get Conditional Funds. The general idea implies that there will be conditional funds hovering as a sort of shadow future
over the present as all the ways money can be used to reinvent the current state of things.
I could propose an idea like "Musician X and Musician Y doing an album together" and people could pledge conditionally on this idea. The pledging could even be conditional on implementation; for instance if we establish a predicition market on the probability of implementation (of Musician X and Y doing the album together), and then make the pledging conditional on that probability approaching some value close to 1.
In general the external judges considered for Insurance could be applied here as well. If known in advance, the money could go directly to the implementors in a delayed fashion conditional on their trust-rating via a prediction market.
This would definitely help third party DACs with funding as well. To some extent, investors want to buy a stake in a DAC for a low price, but if the price is too low, then the DAC will likely fail due to lack of funding
; thus, for each investor they might have a sweet-spot (between two values) in mind - enter conditional pledging!
