Blockchain and the future of governance

Andrea Bauer and Boris Moshkovits (D.DAY network) speaks with Shermin Voshmgir from BlockchainHub and Vinay Gupta of Ethereum Project to discuss the potential, the challenges and the feasibility of different use cases on how to apply the Blockchain protocol in peer-to-peer governance.

Nation states struggle to maintain political, economical and social equilibrium, in the face of global crises. The system of modern democratic governance is based on ideas of the late 17th century, formulated by John Locke and Baron de Montesquieu and cannot survive in the current form. Almost 400 years later, our society has evolved, but our constitutions haven’t. How can the peer-to-peer based Blockchain algorithm help create new and more reliable forms of governance? How do we get from Bitcoin to Bitnation?
