The Novum Insightful Ep.10 - Ethics in Crypto
Ethics in the crypto world is still in some respects uncharted territory. With new technologies come new questions with regard to what's right and what's wrong.
As Dr Jane Thomason of Supernova Data states on this week’s podcast episode:
“A huge portion of [blockchain] developers would like to develop with ethics in mind, but they haven’t been trained and don’t have an understanding of how they would even begin to look at that.”
New projects such as World Coin, which promises free crypto currency for all in exchange for an ‘iris scan’, have raised questions surrounding the ethicality of blockchain-based personal data.
