Connecting Humankind Through Algorithms and Information Networks
NWO project 'Blockchain in the Network Society'
Governments are developing blockchain applications together with companies to improve their services. This might lead to complexity and uncertainty about government responsibilities or the optimal design of rules. This interdisciplinary project investigates how distributed technology - in this case blockchain - combined with smart contracts (rule-based algorithms) can be designed in a transparent and legitimate way, so that citizens can trust the government.
