CryptoMondays SH Monday 15th: Building a new Web/Data economy
Reshaping the Digital Economy; how blockchain could be implemented to achieve it?
Since its introduction, the Internet has been a fundamental pillar of the modern world, a catalyst for increased connectivity and innovations that continue to evolve and drive economic growth.
Born as a decentralised architecture, where everybody could make an impact, it has evolved into a situation where big centralised conglomerates such as Google, Tencent, Microsoft, Facebook, Baidu, Alibaba took over and have the power to shape this economy.
But today, the Internet is facing many challenges. Malicious cybercriminals threaten the security of the digital economy, which becomes more fragile with each attack. The Internet, which was once a tool for information sharing and communication, has grown increasingly complex, and new, digital innovations are outpacing the ability to keep it secure. Security is only one of the many threads, and trust in our digital economy now hangs in the balance, putting significant value at risk.
We are now set to see the digital economy take a new direction, one possibly even more transformative than anything that has come before it. This is because of blockchain, and has the potential to revolutionise main aspects such as payments, data verification and storage, identity management, governance structures, removing existing digital barriers and bringing back decentralisation into the digital economy.
