Blockchain, Governance and Privacy

Democracy, Ego,

Meetups are co-created events: Hosted and curated by amazing organizers from diverse tech communities; brought to you by Techfestival – open to all curious minds. 

NB: Capacities are limited. Please RSVP to register, and arrive in good time to secure your spot!

This is for anyone who wants to learn about what blockchain is and what it can do to society. While a government that gives its citizens no privacy is something of an Orwellian reality, a government that allows its citizens total privacy cannot function. In most democracies, government granted privacy lies somewhere in between, with technology and bureaucracy as a primary limiter. Blockchain has the power to remove both of these limiters and create a better and transparent democracy; however, it also has the opportunity of becoming the ultimate surveillance system. Join us at this workshop and help us answer the question: “What will the fate of privacy and governance be in a blockchain-adopted society?” For inspiration, check out the paperclip game.
