Thinking about Trust
April 20, 2018

In Forctis' Medium blog our CEO Eduardo gives his take on the topic of trust, identified in Barclays' Research 2018 Equity Gilt Study as one of the key challenges that crypto-technologies need to overcome. Eduardo discusses how trust is created and disputes, using both theory and factual evidence, the idea of a “non-trust-based platform” advanced in 1998 by Satoshi Nakamoto. For those wishing to go deeper, a number of selected references from the broad literature on this complex (and equally fascinating) subject is also provided.
