1. We will discuss what we see as the spectrum of public to private ledgers; from ethereum and neo on one end and Microsoft AWB and IBM HyperLeder at the other.

2. The poorly prescribed middle ground; ledgers that allow public access and private side chains.

3. A review of the barriers to entry we perceive at the ends of the spectrum; cost on one side, authority (and usually cost) on the other.

4. We’ll suggest democratic processes as a way to reconcile public access and low costs by using elected authority and self-sovereign identity to prevent duplicated votes.

5. We’ll finish by discussing how we think this could be rolled out at the city level as a populace owned network and how we plan to do it in our city of Leeds in the UK and ultimately how we want to give the same platform away to anyone who wants to do the same in their town or city.
