The Living Force
Yep, that's a tough one. Basically, the only way around it is to ensure that any data that you want to keep mutable (such as people's Personally Identifying Information) only has hashes stored on the chain instead of the data itself. That way the data can be verified by the chain, but kept mutable in a regular database. There are projects such as Europechain that focus on compliance with such laws (ie. GDPR), but those chains tend to be private or centralised in some way. General purpose application chains (such as Ethereum, Cardano or Telos) are similar to the Internet when it comes to legal compliance. A lot of shady stuff can happen on them, but they are platforms, not publishers, so legislators need to adapt the laws to the technology or risk stifling innovation and creating a situation where other nations can gain a competitive advantage.That's nifty, but at the same time we've got crazy laws about 'the right to be forgotten' these days... How do you 'forget' something that's permanently stored on a blockchain?
