Download to read offline

A look at the future use of value based consensus networks to govern or manage open source projects.

What potential benefits does the application of blockchain technology offer an open source community?

The talk will highlight the events within Bitcoin and the governance and control mechanisms that are currently available to the network.

Discussion of mechanisms implemented within Dash and Tezos (and others) in the interest of improving governance capabilities in cryptocurrency.

Will offer ideas for how open source projects that are not cryptocurrencies may leverage such technology, and what metrics may be considered.
