A crypto-government experiment. How would you design it?

In 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto found the inspiration to start an experiment called Bitcoin, a decentralised money system to rival corrupt centralised systems like central banks. At that time, he didn’t bother to go to the central banks and ask them if they would voluntarily decentralise themselves and dissolve their system of power. Instead he decided to build something new that would be an example of what is possible. Not long ago, it would have been crazy to think that fiat money, and the powers that own it, could ever be rivalled. But with Bitcoin, over the past few years people have gained the awareness that a far better way of designing a monetary system is not only possible, but also deliverable, and well within a lifetime.

Given what we now know is possible, what else is possible?

Decentralised governance.

All the centralised systems we have used that still root access provided to unelected individuals or groups can now be retired.
