Another informative blog here from Max.
It certainly reflects many of my encounters with blockchain-engaged
types in London so far.
It's hard to overstate the extremities and contradictions that we've
encountered in this area
The threat of this....
"The inability to imagine alternative use cases for p2p distributed
networks to enable greater financial inclusion, citizen empowerment or
civil organization will lead to the inevitable commercialization and
privatization of blockchain, and bankers will fondly remember Bitcoin as
the greatest gift the hackers ever made."
is a strong motivation for Furtherfield's work in this territory.
Look out for our upcoming Paper DAO workshops for artists and upstarts-
planned for the autumn
And our open call for submissions to a new book Artists Re:thinking the
Blockchain. (Deadline 1st October)
