Blockchains: The End of the Corporation or its Reinvention?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Internet has enabled decentralized exchange of information, but until know, any exchange of value had to rely on a trusted third party, even in the digital economy. With Blockchain Tech, even transactions can be managed in a completely distributed fashion, removing the need for any intermediary at all: it is "the Ultimate Uberization". Does this mean corporations will eventually disappear, or morph into blockchain-based DAOs - "Decentralized Autonomous Organizations" ? Or in the contrary, will the transparency and efficiency of blockchain technology open a whole range of possibilities for businesses to reinvent their industry, hopefully for the better?
