I am a huge advocate for btc however, I still don’t trust it to make tx over the internet. It requires a modicum of trust that I just don’t have for people.

Face to face is completely different but a tx with an “unknown” doesn’t provide the trust that I need in this trustless environment. If they decide not to send me what I paid for what are my options, besides taking a total loss? (Mass adoption won’t happen if this continues to be an issue)

Yes, I do understand that smart contracts are a sort of workaround however, that is eth not btc.

What are some possible (maybe even current?) innovations to combat this issue?
