We need to own our data as a human right—and be compensated for it

"Personal data needs to be regarded as a human right, just as access to water is a human right. The ability for people to own and control their data should be considered a central human value. The data itself should be treated like property and people should be fairly compensated for it."

What comes after open source?

"This post explores the differences between software tools and services; how the stateful nature of software services led them to be closed; and posits how crypto networks can catalyze a new era of open services that reignite combinatorial innovation."

The Moloch DAO: Collapsing The Firm.

"In this article, I will detail thoughts around the Moloch DAO. It’s a new type of organisation (developed by Ameen Soleimani, Arjun Bhuptani, James Young, Layne Haber & Rahul Sethuram) that blurs and redefines the definition of a firm."

WHAT P2P MARKETS ARE BETTER DECENTRALIZED?

"Over the last 20 years, a lot of companies have built large online marketplaces to connect buyers and sellers. Amazon, eBay, Uber, and AirBnb typically come to mind as the most obvious examples. But there are many more."

Can’t be evil

"On the internet, we trust the “good guys.” The companies who store our data, who host our domains, who serve our content. Companies like Google, Cloudflare, and GoDaddy have the power to shut down websites or block specific users, but they don’t flex that muscle. Until they do."

dropgangs, or the future of darknet markets

"The Internet is full of commercial activity and it should come at no surprise that even illegal commercial activity is widespread as well. In this article we would like to describe the current developments - from where we came, where we are now, and where it might be going - when it comes to technologies used for digital black market activity."

The Four Horsemen of Centralization

"What does it mean to say that a cryptonetwork is decentralized?"

Centralization vs Decentralization

"Decentralization is one of, if not the most, discussed features of the crypto tech stack. In a decentralized system, no single body controls the system. We have most certainly not reached the era fully decentralized systems, but that is what most of the world-class technologists working in the crypto sector are focused on getting us to and I believe we will get there in the not too distant future."

The future of organizations

"We believe that blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies are, at the core, a new way of organizing and unlocking human potential. Humans have always organized themselves in relatively small sized groups (limited by Dunbar's Number). "

Blockchain Governance: Busting the Myths of Decentralization, Trustlessness and Anonymity

"Recently I gave a presentation in Chiang Mai, Thailand on “blockchain governance” and made the argument that there exists an acceptable threshold of centralization, trust and strong identity required to achieve an environment where on-chain governance can exist and thrive. In some circles, especially within Bitcoin, introducing any of these 3 qualities results in a perceived net negative value proposition, which I don’t believe is true."

Defending Decentralization, Like a Twice in a Millennium Chance

"Web 3.0 is intended to replace the existing online infrastructure with software that is decentralized from the start. To this end, much of the discussion over the three-day conference echoed Taaki’s sentiment – that with the right combination of technology and vision, Web 3.0 can usher in a new era of digital emancipation."

The Elephant in the Room: Security and Privacy Protocols in Security Tokens

"When comes to security tokens, security and privacy protocols are not only a technically challenging and often intimidating subject but also one that can challenge the current foundation of crypto-securities. From all the aspects missing in the current generation of security token architectures, security and privacy are the ones I feel can break the premise of the entire ecosystem."

Introducing Continuous Organizations

"The current fundraising models (ICO or private fundraising) impose significant limitations on the mechanisms available to align stakeholders’ interests. A Continuous Organization (CO) is a new model designed to make organizations more fluid and more robust by overcoming those limitations."
