The paper is devoted to the problem of transforming the structure of subject’s cognitive attitudes under the influence of the introduction of blockchain technology. It is shown that they are based on the attitude to truth, which determines faith in the attainability of truth, the choice of practices and criteria for verifying knowledge, strategies for managing truth and falsehood. Blockchain as a technology that makes it impossible to change information and the history of transactions destroys the traditional practices of managing the truth and creates a new cognitive situation for the subject in which falsehood, deception, and manipulation are almost impossible and ideology do not work. The result of its implementation is the devaluation of traditional institutions of trust, and, in the long term,—systems for the realization of power accepted by society through the spread of distributed systems.
