Decentralized Power

This session explores the true potential of decentralization and how the way we interact digitally will fundamentally change the hierarchical systems of today.

Key Takeaways: 

  • Social institutions are based on 19th century models born from industrialization – hierarchy and bureaucracy – that don’t scale.
  • The Internet has shown us ways to organize at a larger scale with flat and non-hierarchical networks (decentralized organization).
  • Bitcoin and open blockchains extend that model of organization and add a model for trust at scale.
  • Networks that scale allow us to organize more efficiently than bureaucratic institutions that don’t scale. Eventually, one replaces the other.
  • Bitcoin is more than just money – it’s a new model for organizing trust.
