Mind blown

So. I had the most amazing thought on how our daily lives could be changing in the near future while trying to describe cryptocurreny and distributed ledger to a friend last night. The subject started at the basics of blockchain and ended talking about the power of micropayments and smart contracts.What got me so excited and blew my mind was the revelation on the possibilities of monetizing microtransactions in driverless cars. See i am of the belief that in the not too distant future autonimous driving will be pushed on us by car manufactures, insurance agencies and the government (much deeper than the conversation here, but sets the stage for the next thought). When we are all being shuttled around by our cars traffic and speed limits will be less of a concern. My thought ght is that cars communicating with one another on a ledger network will operate like packets of information, just speeding along like cars of a train. Ok. Heres the mind blowing idea:If i decide i need to get to my destination faster i have to incentivize you to cut in front of you. My car pays you a fraction of an iota (for instance) and i jump in front of you. Taken further, when i get in my car i set my priority for getting from point a to b if i need to get there double quick i essentially pay everyone along the drive for the bemefit of passing them.I pay you to pass you, you get to where your going and look for abplace to park, your car parks by a neighbors house (cuz all other spots are taken) so your car pays them to park there…its this entire economy of micro transactions i hadnt even considered.Anyway. Maybe you all have already thought of this but i hadnt. I font know if the prospect makes me excited or fearful. But i do see how it could work and how ingrained crypto will become as a part of our daily lives.
