Abstract

Peer-to-peer networks are gaining momentum, and its revolution is accelerating. Examples of peer-to-peer systems are Bitcoin and Corda, which are enabled by blockchain technology. Even the firmest supporters of blockchain, acknowledge the most significant challenge for successful adoption and growth of peer-to-peer networks is governance in a decentralized way. A lack of governance design poses a risk, as the decentralized network will not prevail in the long term which can even lead to a centrally orchestrated system. In this paper, we argue that the finding an appropriate governance structure is a design problem.
