PNW Blockchain Presents: Blockchain Utopia vs. Blockchain Dystopia
April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
“If you buidl it, they will come.”
– Satoshi Nakamoto, probably
People are excited about buidling in the depths of Crypto Winter, but will all of this work bring us closer to the decentralized utopia of our dreams or will we end up with something a little more “1984?”
Listen as Joseph Williams and Tamara Rogers go head-to-head in a semi-formal debate about the ethics of buidling in blockchain!
Resolved, that the development of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies will produce a decentralized utopia. Affirmative (Utopia) speaks first.
