Blockchain Governance: A Framework for Analysis and Comparison

Blockchain Governance is a topic that has been getting a lot of attention lately. However, different people usually have a different understanding of the concept. This session presents the results of my thesis project, in which I have created a Blockchain Governance Framework with the goal to help stakeholders understand and analyse the governance of a blockchain in a structured way.

★ 17:30 - 18:30 Solid: From data silos to data ownership

An introduction in ownership of data using Solid (a project by Tim Berners-Lee).

Solid is a new open protocol for data ownership. In the past you shared data with Facebook and now it's their data. In the future you own your data and social media sites can get access to (some of) your data if you allow it. But, and that's the beauty of it: If you'd like to change from social media website, you can just switch; all your data and friends will be automatically 'moved' with you. The one person can still use socialmediasite1. You use your prefered socialmediasite2. Join this session to learn what Solid is, and what Solid can do for your future.

Hosted by Pieter van Everdingen (Platform Linked Data Nederland, and Bart Roorda (
