In some embodiments, systems and methods are provided herein useful to enable a robotic node to participate in peer-to-peer commercial transactions. In some embodiments, the system includes a plurality of databases each comprising information dictating a version of a distributed ledger comprising a commercial agreement, the commercial agreement comprising a contract provision. The robotic node includes a control circuit communicatively coupled to a database of the plurality of databases. The control circuit accesses a commercial agreement in a version of the distributed ledger using a cryptographic key for the commercial agreement and thereby causes the robotic node to activate a robotic node functionality to facilitate performance of the contract provision. The control circuit causes the robotic node to modify the robotic node functionality when a violation of the contract provision is identified.
