Techniques described herein provide innovation relating to directing traffic through a distributed network. A first node can receive packets that are directed to a second node. The first node can determine that the second node is a member of the distributed network based on information within a distributed ledger stored locally on the first node in which the second node is a member based on fulfilling a condition within a smart contract that manages membership. A tunnel from the first node to the second node can be generated to send the packets to the second node. Previously available blockchain systems do not employ abilities to track products beyond mere custody information.
