To Be, To Have, To Know: Smart Ledgers & Identity Authentication

Long Finance's Distributed Futures research programme has produced a report entitled “To Be, To Have, To Know: Smart Ledgers & Identity Authentication”, the latest in a series of exciting projects in the programme. The event offered the opportunity to join the discussion on the findings of the report, which showed how identity management and authentication systems can make use of leading technology, such as smart ledgers, as well as to explore the social, economic, and political implications of their use.

The research provides alternative models for practical identity management and authentication, and suggests considerations for policy makers, regulators, businesses, and individuals, both for the present and looking forward.
