Today’s Collaborative Economy relies on centralized hubs for data collection, where communities are disempowered and economic profits are concentrated. I will present P2P Models, a new €1.5 million, EU-funded research project to build blockchain-powered organizations which are decentralized, democratic and distribute their profits.
Samer Hassan is activist and researcher, Faculty Associate at Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society (Harvard Univ.) and Associate Professor at Univ. Complutense de Madrid (Spain). His focus is decentralized collaboration, studying communities, and building tools for them, in P2Pvalue.eu and now with blockchain in P2Pmodels.eu.
