  • Anarchy, Blockchain and Utopia: A Vision of a Future Society
    Anarchy, Blockchain and Utopia: A Vision of a Future Society Dr Brendan Markey-Towler, Researcher, University of Queensland Recorded: May 9 2018 46 mins
    On the face of it a prosaic bookkeeping technology, Blockchain belies the capability it has to radically transform our societies by making the formulation, promulgation and curation of institutions and public records possible without a decentralised authority.

    In this webinar we discuss how this makes “cryptosecession” and an anarchic society possible. We use evolutionary, institutional and psychological economics to study the evolution of such a society and what makes a Blockchain “fit” to be selected and retained as a technology for organising and recording socioeconomic interaction. From this we obtain a vision of the future: an evolving, diverse, rich and at least partly anarchic society organised by Blockchains.

    Got a question you'd like to ask Brendan and can't make it to the live session? Ask him in the FinTech Insights LinkedIn group: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13589225
