Why Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrencies

The reasons are as clear as daybreak. Over the past few years, blockchain has been on top of driving a revolution in technology. As for cryptocurrencies, there is no doubt that they are here to stay. Traditional institutions are scared that these tokens might put them out of business. Apart from that, people from almost every continent have seen the light.

Coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana have proven to be better investments than the ones offered by banks. In recent times, governments have reduced the clampdown on the crypto industry and are acquiring some tokens themselves. Cross-border payments and financial inclusion have become a regular activity in countries worldwide because of these incredible innovations.

Ready? Then, join thousands of participants at the next Net Futures Conference. Don’t miss it.

Internet, the economy and society in 2027

We are going through a technological revolution that will fundamentally change the way we live, work, and relate to one another. This transformation led by Internet, its scale, scope, and complexity, will be unlike anything humans have experienced before. We do not know where exactly this 'internetisation' will lead us to: What will our society look like in 2027?

However one thing we know: People simply expect a lot more from the Internet, in terms of quality and reach, in terms of security and privacy, an Internet that is inclusive and supports openness, diversity and responds to the needs of the individuals.

We feel that not all European policy actors share this sense of urgency for action. However it is imperative to address these challenges or Europe's voice on the future of the Internet will disappear.

The NET FUTURES edition in 2017 will serve as a wake-up call for policy makers and technologist alike, for civil society and the young whose future we will influence. It will be the place for deep-dive conversations and learnings right at a time when Europe is at the brink of entering the next industrial revolution: The Net.
