Speaking alongside representatives from The Economist, the UE, Instagram, Youtube, Google, Amazon and more, Don Tapscott explained how Blockchain is going to radically transform our society’s institutions at DLD 2016, an invitation-only conference that The Economist calls “the most influential tech conference in Europe”.
Blockchain transforms society. Imagine that we live in an age of distributed entrepreneurship. What if we changed the way wealth was distributed in the first place? What if we created a new halcyon era of entrepreneurship? Currently we live in a society where billions people are connected to a network via a supercomputer in their pocket, but they have no bank accounts because they only own a couple of chickens. Imagine if they could now participate in the global economy: they could have access to things like credit and have access to savings.
