We can always rely on an external chain when we need it, such as proving the identity of an application or using token contracts.

Maybe this is a dumb question (I read your email but not the paper), but if nobody verifies the state chains, how does anyone rely on the computation results?  Why cant a mining node just make up incorrect results?
