Accelerating the Potential of Digital Assets with Blockchain
Non-fungible Tokens, or NFTs, are a form of digital assets that can represent anything from pictures to audio files, to videos – really any kind of art that you want to buy, sell, or trade over the internet. Their ownership is tracked by immutable distributed ledgers, such as blockchain – the same kinds of ledger technology that is used to record ownership of other digital assets, such as bitcoin or other crypto currencies. But are the existing methods of managing the exchange of digital assets really optimizing the markets they serve? In some communities, there is a concern that certain ledgers, blockchain, is having a NEGATIVE impact on the markets they serve because of the energy required to operate them and associated carbon footprint. In today’s episode of the Future of Money, Governance, and the Law, we speak with Joshua Bell to get his insights on new approaches to using blockchain technologies to further unlock the limitless potential of digital assets; all while having a minimal impact on the planet.

Next Generation Voting systems and the standards Behind Them
Elections have been part of the United States since the beginning, but how is technology helping us vote and, more importantly, how is that technology being designed and deployed in a secure, reliable, and trustworthy manner? Next-generation systems need standards to protect voter access, security of the systems, and systems credibility. Leading the charge is our guest Susan Eustis, President of Wintergreen Research, and inventor of the first electronic voting machine.

The Making of Blockchain and Decentralized Ledgers
Where did the idea of Blockchain and Secure, Decentralized Ledgers come from? Today, we speak with Dr. Scott Stornetta, who is considered by many to be the co-inventor of Blockchain, about his work with Dr. Stuart Haber at Bellcore on the introduction of time-stamped digital documents and how that has led to the evolution of immutable, distributed ledgers. Dr. Stornetta is Partner and Chief Scientist for Yugen Partners. Dating back to 1991, his pioneering series of papers, written with co-author Dr. Stuart Haber at Bell Communications Research, received the 1992 Discover Award for Computer Software, and were featured in the New York Times in 1995. This helped lay the foundation for blockchain, Bitcoin and other digital currencies. Dr. Stornetta was Assistant General Manager of the 125-person Mathematical and Computer Sciences Laboratory. He has consulted for many years, evaluating the commercial potential of emerging technologies on behalf of universities, commercial research labs, and venture capital interests. Along with Dr. Haber, he co-founded Surety, a Bellcore spinoff. Surety’s offering constituted the first commercial deployment of a blockchain. Dr. Stornetta received his Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University, after attending MIT, Harvard, and Brigham Young University.

How do Regulators Manage the Emerging Markets of Digital Assets?
Blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and digital assets are disruptive technologies that are impacting markets, financial institutions, economies, governments across the globe. And because they are being applied to a variety of uses – regulators are working to ensure their policies are current with the use of these technologies. However, like any technology, these can be abused. That is where regulation may have to step in. But what regulation, if any, is required? Who enforces the regulation? Who should write the regulations? During this episode, we talk with the Director of the Digital Asset and Cryptocurrency Association, Gabriella Kusz, to find the answers!

Can semi-decentralized and open-source e-voting solutions for citizens add trust to our elections?
Voting and elections were headline news in 2020 and the drama even continues today. Unfounded claims of voting irregularities were common, particularly when the voting process involved any sort of electronic equipment or software. Does electronic voting have a place in the voting process? Is it secure? Is it reliable? Can it satisfy all the requirements of voting? --- A process seems simple at the surface but definitely has subtle complexities. The Future of Money, Governance, and the Law examines voting and how electronic or e-voting is being promoted and adopted in --- of all places --- Paris. We have two experts on e-voting. These gentlemen are not just experts, but I would say they are global leaders in the field of promoting e-voting and getting it adopted through their non-profit company, Electis. Electis, is a non-profit do-tank focused on e-voting and managing a community of academics and students from over 50 universities globally as well as NGOs and others passionate about this space. They organize low-stake elections with various institutions, including the UK government (election representatives of the youth for the COP26), the French national assembly, and local municipalities. Electis’ core value is that e-democracy tools should all be open-source, and this is the case with the voting app we have developed with the Tezos Foundation.

Overcoming Blockchain Limitations
Paul Dowding is a prior GBA and industry panelist, speaker/author, DLT expert, DLT solution inventor/designer, supply chain solutions provider, and co-founder of L4S Corporation. Despite blockchain technology existing for five years, there has yet to be large scale adoption of blockchain in areas such as the supply chain industry. Although distributed, immutable records provide great benefits, the performance, limited functionality, and cost of running the current blockchains has prevented the large-scale adoption. What are the limitations with current blockchain designs? What is the future of crypto assets, DeFi, and NFTs? What is the future of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs).

Vit Jedlicka, the Founder and President of Liberland
After to fall of Communism in the Czech Republic, Vit Jedlicka noticed that the economy in his country began to thrive. In observing the economies of other nations, he decided to study economics. Jedlicka became a member of the Czech Party of Free Citizens, which bases its values on the classical liberal ideology. This liberal ideology inspired him to create a free-market community where citizens did not suffer the burdens of over regulation. After considering many other parcels of land in which to build this community, he chose an unclaimed plot of land between Croatia and Serbia. Apparently, there was no opposition to his taking the land. Mr. Jedlicka then began the tremendous work of building a constitution, writing laws, choosing a currency, and basing the citizens’ votes on a meritorious system. At present, all citizens of Liberland are e-citizens and live elsewhere. The forested riverbank remains uninhabited.
