The Future of Money, Governance, and Law – Washington, DC

November 1 - November 2

We are planning to have the event in a public space on Capitol Hill and invite legislators, regulators and government employees to join us.  We will attempt to peer into the future for a provocative look at the impact of crypto-currency, blockchain, and other emerging technologies like robotics and AI on government, governance support structures and citizens.  We will have three tracks. They are:

Track 1:  Money

  • A world without banks
  • Money without inflation
  • Money without borders
  • Money without fractional reserve banking (Hard Money)

Track 2:  Governance

Governments use banks and financial institutions to monitor, influence and enforce legal compliance. But, what happens when major sectors of a population engage in peer-to-peer transactions without financial institutions.  How can governments perform their functions of maintaining an orderly society when a significant instrument of  power erodes or dissolves.  We will look at topics including:

  • How do governments collect taxes when transactions bypass financial institutions
  • Alternative revenue generation methods
    • Tokenomics
    • Crowdfunding
    • Mining
  • Law enforcement and intelligence officials use financial institutions to identify and arrest criminal activity and national security threats.  However, without financial institutions, what tools are available to government including AI and data analytics to use blockchain and cryptocurrency to enforce laws and standards.
  • Transparent earmarking/ radical transparency
  • Digital, not geographical, citizenship; citizenship without borders
  • Voting
  • Implicit voting … (using proxies to determine the sentiment of citizens)

Track 3:  The Law

Smart contracts create new situations that may challenge the traditional legal system.  Public blockchains and smart contracts respond to software code and algorithms and potentially AI.  Judges and legal systems may not have any control over some transactions.  Further, the very concept of entities and ownership may change.  Our existing legal framework may need to change to prepare for a world where the software as code is supream rathar than the code written in books.  Some topics discussed in this track include:

  • What is THE LAW? Tracking the legal code, regulations, and judicial decisions to understand the LAW, now and in time.
  • Can the law be expressed as software code
  • How will the law treat Sovereign Autonomous Organizations (SAO)
  • Digital dignity implemented via MID’s
  • Digital sovereign rights, digital property.
  • Privacy in a transparent world
  • Privacy and identity implemented through personas
  • Digital reputation and identity


We are seeking several categories of speakers.  They include:

  • Futurists
  • Government executives with experience implementing blockchain programs
  • Government legislators with blockchain legislative experience
  • Government regulators with experience regulating blockchain based assets
  • Government contractors with experience deploying blockchain solutions
  • Banking & financial executives with experience managing blockchain based assets
