Blockchain technology is being developed and deployed to change the way both citizens and corporations interact online. In the future of the internet, referred to as Web 3.0, blockchain proponents imagine we will decentralise our online interactions and no longer be required to trust centralised services. In the decentralised internet we will have sovereign ownership of our data online without exposing it to big corporations like Facebook. Ownership of assets, from houses to shares, will be “tokenized” and traded from peer to peer directly. Bitcoin supporters imagine a world where payments are made privately and seamlessly without the need for intermediaries such as banks. The goods and services we purchase will have verifiable supply chain histories, allowing us to know to if the food we eat is really local and which products originate from exploitative labour practices.  Even the companies in which we work may be operated in a decentralised manor, with blockchain coordinating the decisions of employees who own and operate decentralised autonomous organisations.

Find out how blockchain technology actually works and how businesses are creating trustable shared environments with smart contracts. Discover the problems currently being tackled with blockchain, and the big ideas it is enabling for the future.
