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 — Lecturer in Cyber Security, Lancaster University
Hanane Boujemi — Internet Society Blockchain SIG, and Co-Chair of UN Internet Rights and Principles Coalition
Dr Sarah Meiklejohn — Lecturer in Computer Science, UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies
