With blockchain Technology , We can imagine in a new Internet world , Contracts are stored in a transparent shared database in the form of digital programming , It won't be deleted 、 Be tampered with 、 Revised . In such a world , Every agreement 、 Every process 、 Every task and every payment has a digital record and can be identified 、 verification 、 Store and share digital signatures . Such as lawyers 、 Intermediaries like brokers and bankers are no longer necessary . individual 、 organization 、 Machines and algorithms are free to 、 Interact and trade with each other without friction , This is the infinite potential of blockchain .
