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. Packets received at the first node that are directed to the second node can be sent from the first node to the second node by generating a tunnel between the first and second nodes. Previously available blockchain systems do not employ abilities to track products beyond mere custody information.
