I have an idea for an application of Algorand (edited) as an underlying technology.
I know most are sick of being asked about cookie consent all the time (at least in Europe, idk about the US).
But that annoyance is only one of the problems with the status quo.
- Your content data is stored in the database of a tool provider. It is not auditable by you, nor can you change it easily in one central place.
- Websites using a consent tool also do not have much insight into what is being stored. Also, they are tied to the provider (somewhat).
Would it be feasible to store the consent data on the Algorand (edited) blockchain? For instance, the “Notes” field might be leveraged to store the actual consent data in a transaction between the website and the user. The user could have a specialized wallet like application where he can explore all his consents given and change them (resulting in a new transaction).
Obviously, many questions need to be answered in detail, but I was wondering if this all makes sense?
There has been some limited research into this topic, i.e. here https://dl.gi.de/handle/20.500.12116/20985
