This is a "work page," not a typical information or resource page. It is intended to guide planners, managers, and operators of establish structure for this wiki and for other elements of the Initiative. That being said, thoughts about this page from general users are most welcomed.

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.

Building Trust[edit]

One key goal for the 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.
