If I feel with my twenty other friends that somebody is selling non-vegan food under the name of vegan, i should have the power to shut down their operation forever, twenty people is not even important. One person finds out something fishy, like a writer claiming to be non racist, non homophobic, person, but, his suggestions or life otherwise shows signs of intolerance, That one person should be able to explicitly and effectively tell others that the nonsense that is going on should be curbed. This mechanism is now possible.

You ask why this is important? Well, If we want the world to see what we are seeing, we cannot offer them muddy binoculars that shows them a version of truth that they are already seeing. We need our own systems, of truth and validation. The ones that encompass true values of who we are and what we want. Blockchain tech is the answer to it.
And especially when the traditional internet regulation has failed us.
