Panel Discussion: From Crypto- to Corporate Currencies?
Recently Facebook announced the launch of Libra as an attempt to build a global, reserve-backed cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, Libra won’t be open and community-driven but developed and controlled by an association of for profit actors in the world - tech corporations, credit card companies, and venture capital firms.
As a reaction to these developments, we are organizing a panel discussion that will shed some light on the technical and economic properties of Libra, to point out data protection and privacy issues, and to draw possible utopian and dystopian visions of a future society and economy building on corporate (crypto)currencies.
This panel will take place on October 16, 2019 at the University of Vienna, from 16:30 to 18:00.
Space is limited, so please register here.
Additional information is available on the public event website.
