What are the stakes of the blockchain?-blockhain-enjeux-jpg

The blockchain can have a prominent place in the future functioning of democracies. This can help secure remote voting, facilitating its implementation. In particular, it would ensure that the storage of personal information is not hackable.

Currently, personal data is often concentrated within a few services such as Microsoft, Google or Facebook. US companies that have servers which hackers can easily penetrate and steal essential information. This happens frequently with attacks that release the confidential files of millions of users. These are then resold on the dark net.

The US government via the CIA may also decide that it has a say over all these servers. These services are therefore subject to a certain vulnerability. This can also be problematic when it comes to a company's future plans, its roadmap, its market share goals. Commercial data that may interest competitors, who take advantage of security breaches by employing freelance hackers.

Each country must be able to understand the blockchain to better control it, rather than leaving the regulatory powers to a few foreign countries. At the moment there are very few standards. The world should interest itself in the subject, in order to assert a common vision on digital development of new fundamental rights that lead to digital citizenship. This citizenship must be protected at all costs.

How much will we change the main organizations of society, namely governments, banks, various audit authorities when encrypted computer programs will be sufficiently developed, when the artificial intelligence will have reached a sufficient stage? How computer and mathematical laws can properly manage social and cultural diversity, respecting the rights of each individual. These questions and the answers provided will help to lay the foundations for the use of the blockchain for the coming decades.

It is difficult to realize, but the blockchain revolution is in all respects similar to that of the Internet in the 90s. These are the beginnings of a world with unlimited fields of application.

We know today what are all the defects of the Internet, all its vices in terms of security, and fraudulent uses. It must be taken into account for a better success of a transition to a world in which the blockchain has been democratized.
