Techniques described herein provide innovation directed to forming a temporary, ad hoc network. A first node can receive a request to initiate an ad hoc distributed network with at least a second node. A connection with the second node can be initiated based on a determination that the second node is an authorized member of the ad hoc distributed network in which the determination is based on fulfilling a condition within a smart contract that manages membership. A tunnel can be generated from the first node to the second node to send packets to the second node. Based on an event within a distributed ledger of the first node describing shutting down the ad-hoc distributed network, a copy of the distributed ledger can be sent to storage and the connection with the second node can be shut down. Previously available blockchain systems do not employ abilities to track products beyond mere custody information.
