Event description

Description

WebRoots Democracy invites you to an evening seminar entitled:

blockchain and its applications for democracy

It will be a speaker event taking place at Newspeak House, the community space for political technologists, in Shoreditch.

Blockchain (a digital, decentralised, public ledger of transactions) forms a core component of Bitcoin, the worldwide cryptocurrency, and is often talked about for its potential in other aspects of society.

Due to the secure and transparent nature of blockchain, it is touted as a concept that could be used for online voting platforms not just for representative elections, but for direct democracy, liquid democracy, and participatory budgeting.

If you're interested to find out more about blockchain and how it can be applied, join us to listen, ask questions, and learn on the 6th of December.

Speakers:

Dr David Galindo - Senior Lecturer in Computer Security, University of Birmingham
Dr Bingsheng Zhang - Assistant Professor in Cyber Security, Lancaster University

Further speakers to be announced.

Spaces are limited and you will need to be on the guestlist in order to attend.
