The Problem with Blockchain

Our program director Francesca Bria talks to Evgeny Morozov about how digital technology can be democratized.

  • Blockchain, bitcoin and decentralization can be a promise – and a challenge to a more just and equitable internet.
  • The utopian thinking of Web3 is a reminder of the euphoria of the 90s – this might be very naive and even dangerous.
  • The discourse about Web3 will stay with us – it is relevant in the context of our program The New Hanse.
