Blockchain & The Future of Democracy

If the protocols & algorithm on the blockchain define the ‘constitution’, the underlying crypto laws of our future crypto economy, if they define the rules of how people will interact with each other in the future, what happens when the algorithm becomes outdated? It will have to be modified though consensus. But consensus on the blockchain is not easy as we can see from the challenges that bitcoin is currently facing. So, if the protocols we define today are the constitutional foundations our future societies, if the coders of today are the lawyers of tomorrow, we will need to learn from history and the challenges of modern democracy, before we set out to build the next killer apps on the blockchain.

Blockchain & Future of Law – Keynote

If the protocols & algorithm on the blockchain define the ‘constitution’, the underlying crypto laws of our future crypto economy, if they define the rules of how people will interact with each other in the future, what happens when the algorithm becomes outdated? It will have to be modified though consensus. But consensus on the blockchain is not easy as we can see from the challenges that bitcoin is currently facing. So, if the protocols we define today are the constitutional foundations our future societies, if the coders of today are the lawyers of tomorrow, we will need to learn from history and the challenges of modern democracy, before we set out to build the next killer dApps on the blockchain.

Another question that arises: Are the coders of today the lawyers of the future? How do these new technologies fit into existing legal structures? National and international law already have a problem coping with the the classic internet, not speaking of the next generation internet that is completely serverless. What do we need to do to create adequate legal structures for distributed organizations, on chain as well as off chain? And how can we merge smart contracts with legal contracts?

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?
