Cryptocurrency + The Future of Cities
How does blockchain technology engage the real-life communities surrounding us? Last week, The Creative Crypto Magazine and Sndbox co-founder Kirk Finkel was invited to speak at Columbia University GSAPP (Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation) as part of a Summer Lecture Series in New York City. The talk was centered around blockchain, cryptocurrency, and how these new technologies are impacting design. Specifically, our team highlighted Steem as a community building resource that is drastically changing the way we connect, collaborate and create in the digital era.
New Tools to Empower Creative Practice
You can also watch the talk on DTube, a decentralized Youtube powered by Steem. Here, the lecture video is held securely across a global network and not by a single authority or company. Very literally, the first time this lecture was shared on the web, it was published on a blockchain.
Lecture: Blockchain Urbanism: Exploring The Future of Decentralized Design Practice
Location: Avery Hall, Columbia University (New York City)
