Spotlight on Innovation: Blockchain for Intellectual Property with Saga Arvidsdotter

Video description

Blockchain is revolutionizing the world by removing middlemen and putting individuals, groups and things in direct contact. Global and trustless, blockchain forms the internet of value, compared to today’s internet of data. Key properties of blockchain, like immutability, transparency, and decentralization, can solve the problem of digital identities, which can serve as a base for intellectual property.

In this Spotlight on Innovation, find out how blockchain technology can facilitate different types of intellectual property—and transform your business. Artist and blockchain engineer Saga Arvidsdotter explains what blockchain is and discusses the important and varied perspectives you should be familiar with when designing blockchain technology, including philosophy, finance, game theory, and writing code like law.
