About the seminar:
Blockchain technology has developed rapidly in recent years and has received a lot of attention. Many believe blockchain may have potential to revolutionize development work, including enabling greater transparency and thereby reducing corruption in money transfers, strengthening land rights for marginalized groups through transparent and easily accessible proof of land, as well as providing smart contracts and enabling simpler personal identification, digitally.
What opportunities and dilemmas does blockchain provide for development work? What experiences do Norwegian actors have?
