I will be speaking on the blockchain panel about the potential of tech for platform cooperatives, but specifically about how status-quo business models are currently limiting that potential. I will give an overview of blockchain within the context of the global social change movement, how the technology could be applied, and what standards need to emerge.

Ashley is a cultural activist who has been working in blockchain & digital technology to see if it could be designed to support the emerging, regenerative economy and growing resiliency of communities. She is currently learning computer coding to build systems that would be useful for connecting people to create positive impact.
