Blockchains: Technology for a people’s globalization?

with unMonastery

Vinay Gupta of the Ethereum project will discuss the political anomaly of bitcoin, the libertarian cryptocurrency, and discuss what these technologies of radical decentralisation can offer the world and how we can expect them to evolve in future.

The session will look specifically at the interface, interaction and convergence of new and maturing technologies as they come together in a developing world setting; solar cheaper than grid power, effective and affordable virtual reality and mesh networking. How do systems of government, identity, finance and security operate and adapt in this new world? And can we steer that?
