WHAT’S GOVERNING WEB3?
December 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - December 15, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Web3 is a ”decentralized online ecosystem based on blockchain” (Gavin Wood, 2014). Web3 governance broadly describes the rules and processes that are used for decision-making over platforms and applications that are ‘permissionless’ – meaning anyone with the required resources and capital can take part.
Governance occurs through the software and infrastructure choices of node operators who are unknown to each other, yet whose decisions influence the security and direction of blockchain protocols.
The event is presented by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society (ADM+S), the Cooperation Through Code project— a Future Fellowship project funded by the Australian Research Council, the BlockchainGov project of the European Research Council (ERC), Metagov, RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub and the Digital Asia Hub.
