Technosphere Magazine: The Byzantine Generalization Problem: Subtle Strategy in the Context of Blockchain Governance
Who is responsible for making the decision on how to make decisions? Researcher Kei Kreutler analyzes the decentralized, consensus-driven decision processes implemented in blockchain technologies from a more general perspective of governance. Such an approach allows for a more nuanced negotiation of agency, power, and stakes in decision processes for both technical and social organization.

Floodgate's Mike Maples: Network Businesses Will Disrupt Your Business | Fortune
Crypto and blockchains reimagine money, based on software-encoded sound money principles enforced by large-scale networks.
Governments have substituted politically-motivated policies for the integrity of sound money, reducing growth, long-term investment, and personal freedoms. Irresponsible manipulation of the price of money has enriched insiders and Wall Street speculators while punishing the Middle Class. And too often financial service providers haven’t been accountable for the fees they charge, the risks they take, the quality of service they deliver, or their transparency to customers.

Can Blockchain Disrupt The E-Book Market? Two Startups Will Find Out
The basic concept behind today’s e-book/blockchain startups is to emulate ownership — as a practical, technical matter — more closely than existing digital content distribution systems do. The idea is to use two properties of blockchains that help facilitate digital ownership. First, blockchains are ownerless, so that a record of file ownership on a blockchain is not controlled by a central distributor such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Second, blockchains are immutable, so that if a system puts an entry on a blockchain that you own an e-book, that entry is there to stay forever, even if the vendor whose technology you used to buy the e-book goes out of business. And if you sell the e-book to someone else, another entry goes onto the blockchain that also stays there, unaltered, in perpetuity.

In other words, blockchains enable transfers of ownership that are secure and not controllable by a third party after the fact. But there are other aspects to emulating ownership, such as not being able to send copies to your million best friends or keep your own copy after you’ve alienated it. For this, DRM is necessary. Files must be encrypted, and tokens are really enhanced versions of license files that most DRM systems use to contain encryption keys and information about usage rules.
