We believe trust is unnecessary if proof can be showed. In place of trusted third parties we make trustless third parties verifiable.
People rely on many trusted third parties (e.g. certificate authorities, voting systems) to get things work, yet their trustworthiness can hardly be verified. This says people can only simply trust them till some damages are done (e.g. DigiNotar 2011, US Election 2016).
The ProofShow team believes no one can be simply trusted: unless unavoidable, trust should always be replaced by verifiability. We think unnecessary trust can be eliminated by the supply of verifiable proof that trustless parties can just show when challenged.
