DAO - Decentralized Autonomous Organizations: Can You Trust A Blockchain?

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

This session will address the question of trust (or "trustlessness") and how it relates to the question of human autonomy and agency. Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) are organizations operated on blockchain-based smart contracts which aim at removing the need for control measures to ensure trust. 
Can you trust a DAO that is completely autonomously operated? If not, can you trust the people who are operating it? How can a "trustless" technology like the blockchain bridge the gap between these 2 figures? How much agency should be given to a DAO? How to ensure that it does not take away human agency?
