blockchain ethics

As part of the DCI’s mission (to steward blockchain technology for the public good), we are establishing “Blockchain Ethics” as a movement to positively shape blockchain’s impact on society. The crucial idea is this: if blockchain technology has even 10% of the Internet’s impact, we should take proactive care in developing it.

Neha Narula and Rhys Lindmark are teaching a BlockchainEthics class at the Media Lab in Fall 2019. See our course webpage at

We want to empower an ecosystem of universities, industries, and government to tackle this problem head on. Please reach out if you’re interested in collaborating.
