What are the implications of blockchain projects that re-create the same financial systems of control that we currently have? Should we use banks for custodial cryptocurrency services? Are there benefits to permissioned, centralised blockchains for supply chain management, digital rights management (DRM), healthcare data, or tokens for senior citizens’ credit? Why is decentralisation of control and minimising trusted third parties in finance is more important? What should we learn from the demonetisation & Gresham's Law in India? Can we achieve our dreams without capitulating on principles?
These questions are from the MOOC 9.6 session, the June monthly Patreon session, and part of the Denver talk, which took place on March 23rd, June 24th, and August 6th 2018 respectively. Andreas is a teaching fellow with the University of Nicosia. The first course in their Master of Science in Digital Currency degree, DFIN-511: Introduction to Digital Currencies, is offered for free as an open enrollment MOOC course to anyone interested in learning about the fundamental principles.
