Blockchain technology has been heralded as the cure for all that ails us, but is it really? In this frank discussion, we'll look at what the Internet of Information has managed to get right and wrong as it evolved into ubiquitous substrate for big business and human connectivity, and why we might need to approach things differently to build an Internet of Value — inclusive of both cryptocurrency and distributed data — that supports tomorrow's global economies, sovereign governments, and individual human rights.
