Jaya Klara Brekke: Doing Good (on the blockchain)

From Our Shifting Ground Is Written in the Cloud

Jaya Klara Brekke focuses on the potential of blockchain and consensus protocols to redistribute power. She is the author of the B9Lab ethical training module for blockchain developers and the Satoshi Oath, a Hippocratic oath for blockchain development.

“Doing Good (on the blockchain)” is the third event in the DAOWO blockchain laboratory and debate series organized by the UK art and technology collective Furtherfield. Brekke reorients the conversation of “Doing Good” to how “the good” is determined in decentralized systems like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Faircoin. She enumerates the affordances of a blockchain technology without financial incentives in Faircoin where, instead of proof of work, Faircoin offers incentives through proof of cooperation.
