Blockchain: A Libertarian Panacea?

Blockchain: A Libertarian Panacea?

Blockchain, the technology underpinning bitcoin, has given partisans of the libertarian movement unlooked for backing. This technology and its offshoots will soon give rise to a number of solutions, over and above cryptocurrencies. Surely we are at the dawn of an economic revolution? What might its consequences and implications be? Who would use these applications and lay down the legal framework that would govern these blockchain solutions? These are a few examples of some of the questions that we ought to be asking ourselves.

Key Points

  • The start of a revolution?
  • Could blockchain become an instrument to serve libertarianism?
  • Libertarianism is currently in fashion
  • Retreat by the state or a stronger state?
  • What can we expect from blockchain derivatives?
