Decentralised Economy


Citizen-centric innovation for the connected era
Mihael Modic, Datafund

Personal data is the most important “raw material” in the information society. Companies and other organizations collect personal data today in incredible extents. I will present how can the new data protection regulation (GDPR) in combination with the appropriate use of decentralized technology radically change the relationship of power between individuals and organizations and how trustful companies can take advantage of this change in a mutual benefit.

A non-blockchain approach to distributed identities
Patrik Wallström, Brickchain

Brickchain has developed a new set of protocols for developing a new decentralized platform for identity and permission management. With our protocol, our app and our open platform, any business can develop services to take part in a growing ecosystem of personal data, consent and secure digital identities. We will present our Integrity platform, and a few of the services we have developed, such as our booking service, and the Home Assistant access layer.

Iceland and decentraliced health data
Freyr Hólm Ketilsson, Dattaca

Dattaca Labs in Iceland have established a Startup studio in Iceland focusing on Startups working within decentralization. In Iceland health data has been available for about 12 months, social data even longer and financial data has just recently been made available. On the back of that this Startup studio has been established. A part of the Startup studio is the decentralization fund who has the role of writing small checks (20 per year) for founders that are taking their first steps developing their product, the fund can write follow up checks (5 per year) as well. The Startup studio premise is to minimise the product risk, product to market risk and finally team risk.
