Blockchain - Means of Oppression or Resistance?

  • Bugbee Senior Center 262 North Main Street White River Junction, VT, 05001 United States (map)

A community presentation and discussion. Free and open to the public.

Blockchain, the technology behind crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, is touted as both a form of monetary freedom from the manipulation of global banking cartels and the means of elite control over the financial futures of the masses. So which is it? “It’s both.” Says Ryan Munn, of Interchain Vermont, “Like any technology, it will project the intentions of its operators. So it is up to us to be the operators, individually and as communities. Have no doubt the technology will be implemented to the fullest extent possible and it will empower those who participate. Let’s make sure all are included in the empowerment by staying the course of learning and sharing.”

In this interactive workshop, Ryan will introduce participants to the world of blockchain currency, explain its potentials to advance the interests of the public or the interests of the elite, and offer some projections about how this technology will affect our lives in the years to come.

Ryan Munn is an entrepreneur, speaker, and emerging thinker in the world of blockchain implementation. He is the founder of Interchain, LLC, a firm that helps business use blockchain to solve problems. Ryan also hosts online conversations about blockchain and token economics. As Vermont Chapter Lead of both the Government Blockchain Association and the Blockchain Chamber of Commerce, Ryan was instrumental in the creation and passage of Act 205, a Vermont law that enables Blockchain Based LLCs and Personal Information Trusts.
