Panel: Will Blockchain Liberate the Netizens?

Will Blockchain Liberate the Netizens?

In 2008 a pseudonymous figure named Satoshi Nakamoto released a PDF entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.” Within a year a small cadre of libertarian cypherpunks began evangelizing a technological breakthrough. In 2018, after untold amounts of digital wealth have made speculators rich, we are witnessing a Cambrian explosion of technology based on Nakamoto’s core innovation: the Blockchain. Join our panel of investors, academics, and yes one or two cypherpunks for a conversation about how this technology that began as a tool to liberate netizens from the tyranny will be the "Next Big Thing"?
