LTP has covered the blockchain and cryptocurrency infrastructure comprehensively since the very beginning. From specialty mining rigs to Goldman Sachs' investments in the space, we have reported on key developments in blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies.
Now as the space continues to mature with former financial regulators becoming active participants in the ecosystem, and with people beginning to appropriately delineate between the infrastructure and the currencies, there is a heightened level of understanding and appreciation for what this means for the future of money.
Against this backdrop, LTP is pleased to share with you an event organized by Primavera De Filippi, Constance Choi and John H. Clippinger on June 15-16 in London. More details from the organizers are below, but first enjoy the keynote from their previous workshop in Stanford - a fascinating talk by Don Tapscott:
We are pleased to invite you to attend the Third Edition of the Blockchain Workshops: Blockchain (R)evolution Conference.
Launched at Harvard and MIT, the Blockchain Workshops are a multidisciplinary collaboration between leading academic institutions that convene a special group of stakeholders at the intersection of related disciplines. The discussion is focused on the high value application of blockchain technologies and implications for our global community, economic infrastructure, and evolving social order.
The purpose of the conference is to convene key stakeholders and decision makers to develop policy frameworks for blockchain technologies and identify actionable, real-world solutions for distributed global infrastructure.
The conference will address the following topics:
● Bitcoin to Blockchain - state of the art of blockchain technologies, including Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Stellar, proprietary blockchains and more.
● Economics to Cryptoeconomics - economic stability and viability, implications of loss of sovereignty of central banks and potential ability of society to regulate its own money.
● Common Law to Cryptolaw - oversight for distributed networks, including regulation, privacy, and identity; building and digitizing legal and institutional frameworks.
● Transactional to Relational Economies - the creation, necessity and viability of competing value systems, economics and incentive structures.
● Financial Exclusion to Inclusion - unbanked, underbanked, and migrant workers, creation of self-sustaining local communities, infrastructure for the other 99%.
● The Internet to the Internet of Things - designing responsive architecture for smart institutions, smart contracts, DAOs.
