Blockchain and Civil Liberties

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access."

Join the Human Rights Foundation and the cryptocurrency hedgefund CryptoLotus for an interactive workshop about blockchain technology and its impact -- both positive and negative -- on the civil liberties space. We'll take a look at how the blockchain may impact free expression, identity, privacy, governance, elections, journalism, social media, intellectual property, and other areas of personal and political freedom.

We'll be joined by CryptoLotus members Joshua Goldbard, Kevin Fischer, and Apneet Jolly, as well as Nathana Sharma, who is the Program Director for Faculty Affairs as well as faculty in Law, Policy, Ethics and Blockchain at Singularity University. They are looking forward to taking your questions and sharing their thoughts on existing blockchain projects, as well as what to look for in the next few years in this space.
