Primavera De Filippi on Ethereum: Freenet or Skynet? [AUDIO]

0

Ethereum is a contract validating and enforcing system based on a distributed public ledger such as the one implemented by the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. The system allows for the management of complex distributed autonomous organizations, which raises questions about legality.

In this talk Primavera De Filippi — Berkman fellow and postdoctoral researcher at the CERSA/CNRS/Universit√© Paris II — explores the dangers and opportunities of Ethereum.
