Primavera De Filippi is a permanent researcher at the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS) in Paris. She is faculty associate at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School, where she is investigating the concept of "governance-by-design" as it relates to online distributed architectures.
Most of her research focuses on the legal challenges raised, and faced by emergent decentralized technologies —such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and other blockchain-based applications —and how these technologies could be used to design new governance models capable of supporting large-scale decentralized collaboration and more participatory decision-making.
Primavera obtained a Master degree in Business & Administration from the Bocconi University of Milan, and a Master degree in Intellectual Property Law at the Queen Mary University of London.
Primavera is involved in several organizations dedicated to promoting the free culture and open data.
She is the co-author of Blockchain and the Law: The Rule of Code, which comes out in April and explores the regulation of cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, ICOs and distributed autonomous organisations.
Except to learn a treasure trove of things in this conversation, including:
There was so much more I wanted to explore in this conversation with Primavera, but blockchain is one of those rabbit hole topics, and we could only cover so much in the one hour we had.
I would have loved to have explored not only the downsides of ICOs but also the upsides around liquidity, business continuity and the democratisation of early stage startup investment.
With that, I trust you’ll enjoy this conversation with Primavera De Filippi.
