Trust is central to creating a healthy, livable, and effective neighborhood. Trust lowers uncertainty and encourages the exchange of value, it serves as a social lubricant that engages residents to address the decisions and tasks of the day.
There are several generators of trust we can learn from:
- Traditional institutions - banks, civic organizations, governments, and religious institutions help establish trust by providing transparent and accountable rules.
- In the online world Amazon, Airbanb, Ebay, and Etsy provide rules that facilitate trust and value exchange.
- Finally there are informal neighborly exchanges that create trust - cooperation, giving, and sharing.
One key goal for the JacksonHeights.nyc Initiative is that we create trust by formalizing a system that records positive actions and enables communication about this social capital to facilitate the exchange of all kinds of value.
A starting point on how neighborhood trust might be recognized and allocated using the blockchain technology is presented in this 14 minute TED Talk.
