What lies behind Bitcoin: the rise and promise of blockchain computational systems





With so called “blockchain” technologies, consisting of a combination of peer-to-peer and cryptographic ledger software components, today people and organisations have the possibility to “hold digital money in an harddisk”, autonomously validate contracts and administer a network of trust without the need of intermediaries.

At the base of all this there is a ground-breaking technological innovation in the field of accountancy, which is popularly addressed as Blockchain, or “triple-entry book keeping”, or distributed ledger, which powered the first popular crypto currency “Bitcoin”, plus the growing enthusiasm of the financial industry and other industries following.

The “Blockchain” phenomenon configures itself as a disruptive technology enabling disintermediation at a financial, institutional and organisational level. Yet for many is very difficult to comprehend its potential and its limits and its fields of application.

With this lecture I will walk the audience across the experiences made through 2 European research projects, D-CENT and DECODE, both focusing on “Decentralised Citizen Engaged Technologies” and “Decentralized Citizen Owned Data Ecosystem”, investigating the adoption of blockchain technologies and the value of this innovation in society, taking the time to explain in a detailed way what “blockchain” technology is about and what is not.
