Blockchain: Atribución de responsabilidad en entornos descentralizados (Descentralisation and Accountability/Liability in Permissionless Blockchain Systems)

23 octubre, 2019 el 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


12:00: Blockchain: Atribución de responsabilidad en entornos descentralizados.

Existe una fuerte controversia sobre la potencial responsabilidad de los programadores y otros participantes en las operaciones realizadas en Blockchain (y en concreto en entornos descentralizados).

Se trata de una cuestión clave para el desarrollo de soluciones basadas en esta tecnología (negocios, operaciones con activos digitales, cryptomonedas, gestión documental…).

¿Realmente eliminan las blockchains públicas la necesidad de confiar en un poder central?

¿Podemos realmente confiar en el nuevo sistema o estamos depositando demasiada confianza en un pequeño núcleo de expertos/programadores?

¿Deberían estos asumir la responsabilidad de sus actuaciones en el sistema?

Ponente: Angela Walch

Coloquio abierto: Modera Almudena de la Mata, Blockchain Intelligence.
