Can blockchains help IoT security issues? Should we use ERC-20 token to trade solar energy? Can blockchains help with securities and prediction markets? Transport and logistics projects? Supply chain? Vehicular communications? Digital identities? Voting and election processes? Since there is such a proliferation of tokens, when will they reach the implementation stage? Ideas are cheap. Without ethics, tech can be dangerous.

These questions were from the sixth session of MOOC 11 and the Seoul Bitcoin Meetup, which took place on March 7th and April 5th 2019, respectively. If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron:
