Have you ever wander how the preserve Suttas and Vinnaya for future generation? History is showing the decline and changing of the meaning in Suttas, and monastic rules…
What if we post whole Pali | English suttas into blockchain? So it cannot be changed in future. One thing is clear future is digital. And for next 2500 year there still be Buddhism, with or without flying cars
A blockchain record cannot be deleted or manipulated,
once uploaded to blockchain they records stay there forever unchangable.
Of course some council need to be establish to validate each of the texts… not saying that even all different traditions should be posted… Just idea. I think somebody will realize this idea… but I see the problem with execution and validation of the text in first place…It should have full support of powerful patrons - public figures from Buddhist religion to add validity to records, when somebody in 500 years will start to question even this records. Therefore I’m suggesting it here - where people know powerful people, and also the text very well, and they genuine care.
The whole bible is burned in some crystal stone and also engraved in some material in nanoscale. Why the Buddhist cannot have ~ Blockchain Tipitaka
I think it is cool idea showing how Buddhist can use modern technology to protect the Tipitaka.
