Conference summary

Blockchain and cryptocurrencies: Toward a new model of decentralized sovereignty?

From Libra to central bank digital currencies, blockchain technologies are transforming the traditional model and conception of moneys. Behind this transformation, this is the whole idea of sovereignty which is at stake. Will crypto be the entrance door of a new concept of sovereignty for private companies, from Facebook to Amazon but also for new projects as we saw with ICOs? Are we to discover that blockchain technologies are finally recentralizing sovereignty within the hands of States?
