Upcoming event: Reconsidering Blockchain

19th February 2019, 10:00 – 17:30

Maison Suger, 16 -18 Rue Suger – 75006 Paris

This one-day workshop is intended to re-address the issues related to the Blockchain in the current context of the Anthropocene. Blockchain will also be considered in the context of “Real Smart Cities” where territories are considered as local open systems in a contributory economy.

Blockchain systems are raising important questions that will be confronted to the context of the Plaine Commune territory (North of Paris), in an attempt to evaluate capacitative technological solutions with and for citizens. How should the global dimension of Internet communication be combined with the needs of local communities within the context of open communication systems in a way that provides clear rules for decision making and traceability of exchanges? Do decentralized systems show evidence of a new articulation between top-down and bottom-up knowledge production that could open the way to a new democratic context? How can decentralized systems help to build a new contributory economy for the benefit of local communities and contributory democracies, for example, by initiating debate concerning the definition of economic value and the context of the future of work in the age of a generalized automation of jobs and a massive decrease of employment.
