Decentralization is already here, but it hasn't been evenly distributed. Based on his research, William Mougayar describes where we are in decentralization along three dimensions: Trust: Law, Governance, Industry Services (Financial, Government, Trade, Healthcare), Wealth: Economic Production, Flow of value, Transactions, and Information: Content, Privacy, Security. In this talk, Mougayar also defines the building blocks of decentralization: Peer-to-Peer Models, Trust-based Systems and Services, Autonomous Organizations, and Wealth Creation Methods in the New Crypto-Economy.
