Of course, even without Distributed Ledger Technologies, dash could of drawn up a legally binding pledge to it's end-users regarding voting rights and core functions. For example, can end-users have confidence that rollbacks won't occur (like Ethereum)? Core are quick to hire lawyers when it comes to fiat gateways but commitments to the end-users? - oh I see, one rule for them, another for us. If dash used the blockchain to govern sources and binaries, they wouldn't have to hire lawyers.. isn't that the essence of smart contracts, disintermediation? - haha, only when it suits The New Geek Bankers!
