When game theory meets finance: Building Peace Machines with Ethereum

not fiction not a game: OpenCoop Platforms are the future but

It seems (my impressions only here) that for a while there's been little mention of Ethereum in the OpenCoop sites.. Now there seems none at all in opencoop circles...Yes circles or should I say spirals, as in Enspiral.com (a network of networks) is the new premise for open cooperative platforms/projects.  This new paradigm in opencoop and Open Value Networks is partly based on liked minded /cultural affinity and joining is by invitation only in slack type channels like https://www.loomio.org/ where groups can engage around projects. I don't entirely disagree but I think the lack of ethereum attribution in that ecosystem is a reaction to the difficult technical premise faceless programmable smart contracts and creating trustless platforms . -if Ive read between the lines correctly.

Recent articles like the Perils of Trustless Systems highlight a sentiment that Trustless smart contracts are dehumanizing in some way and developing trust and accountability is the better way. I disagree with the rejection of smart contracts here: because transparency and accountability is the very backbone of Ethereum smart contracts. Open projects that span continents need tools for transparency , governance and collaborative tools. That OpenCoop would shun Ethereum seems a mistake and maybe a cultural bias.

The seeming lack of opencoop adoption of ethereum (or attribution) may be a bias based on the premise that smart contracts are only the plaything of Entrerprise Big Banking. Simply put, ethereum doesnt 'fit' the opencoop crowd's culture and image or values? Ethereum is culture agnostic..branding is superficial.  You may use it as you see fit.. its not exclusive to the banking sector, VC or some ideology.. Its a tool.. to build machines. ,,Peace Machines

The concept of platform ownership in OpenCoops favors the idea of collective ownership. Ethereum doesn't belong to anyone.. it is a public utility like a road .. therefore arguably a collective ownership. Opencoops dont take that road or avoid it. It will be interesting to see how scalable their closed door (open source ) will scale or not.
