This is Marcel Bullinga’s contribution to the newest survey about the future of internet by renowned US research institute PEW in August 2017 called
The Fate of Online Trust in the Next Decade
Marcel has contributed to several PEW surveys from 2012 on. He is one of the 1000+ global experts that are canvassed regularly.
Marcel Bullinga, trend watcher and keynote speaker, wrote, “Strengthened trust is my hope, not a prediction. It is the great promise of blockchain of course, in combination with a host of other privacy and trust technologies, that it will make trusted peer-to-peer transactions possible. This is not in the interest of current technology companies and powerful platforms like Google, Facebook and Uber, so it will be heavily battled. Yet, it would revolutionize our economy into a true, trusted DIY world.”
