Description

Can we have secure identities on the blockchain? How would blockchain identities serve the surveillance system? Why do KYC policies by centralised entities not actually work against fraud risk? Being identified doesn't make you good, but it does lead to economic exclusion. Authorities will keep asking for more and more power.

Note: To be clear, this video is not about being against decentralized identities in general. It is mostly about taking a stance against applying KYC policies to these networks in a way that is opposed to anonymity and privacy, especially as a storage mechanism for sensitive information, which was the scope of the question.

These questions are from the MOOC 10.6 session, which took place on October 11th 2018. If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/aantonop
