What role could decentralized technologies play in the future of our society?

This meetup focuses on decentralization in all its different aspects.

The question above resides at the heart of Dezentrum.
Dezentrum acts as a hands-on think tank, hub, and enabler for a decentralized future. In the role as a co-founding party of the Blockchain Hub «Trust Square», the initiators work closely with academic partners as well as with companies from the private sector.
Presently the discourse about Blockchain is heavily dominated by the technology and financial industry. With its interdisciplinary approach, the Dezentrum is broadening the discourse by social sciences as well as humanistic and artistic disciplines. Co-producing studies, pilot projects and showcases, the Dezentrum actively participates in shaping the future of our society in the decentralized era.

Blockchain and our societies - an ethical appraisal

„The future of social impact is… blockchain.“ - David Hessekiel, 2018 The impact of blockchain technology on our societies is yet to be seen, despite there being many excellent plans and projects. Notwithstanding sceptical voices, blockchain has the potential to be a disruptive innovation. However, innovation does not have to be equal to societal progress. This is why we need to deal with ethical values behind blockchain. What use cases exist, where blockchain technology is not just innovative but yields true societal improvement? And what value proposition do cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology present for our societies? We will address these questions together with Monique Morrow, co-funder of „Humanized Internet", Tobias A. Huber, PhD candidate at ETH Zürich with a specialisation in cryptocurrency markets, and Delphine Bracher, innovation ethicist at ethix - lab for innovation ethics. Speakers: Monique Morrow: President and Co-Funder of Humanized Internet, Venture Partner at Sparklabs Accelerator for Cybersecurity and Blockchain Tobias A. Huber: Member of the Chair of Entrepreneurial Risks at ETH Zurich and a coordinator of the Complexity Economics Working Group at the Institute for New Economic Thinking Panelists: Monique Morrow: President and Co-Funder of Humanized Internet, Venture Partner at Sparklabs Accelerator for Cybersecurity and Blockchain Tobias A.
