[演講公告]Changing Spaces of Property Ownership: Web3, NFTs and the Financialization of Everything

1110706 speech

講者: Matthew Zook (University of Kentucky)
演講大綱:

The rise of Web3 rhetoric in 2021 marks the latest round of blockchain inspired economic experimentation. Founded on a (mostly) libertarian-styled ideology using a lens of property, personal sovereignty and ownability Web3 seeks to decentralize away from platforms, central banks and the state and re-make socio-economic space through trustless and market-based systems of algorithmic governance. This presentation focuses on two key emerging practices: (1) Using NFTs (non-fungible tokens on a blockchain) to create property rights for digital goods to make digital objects unique and allow for easy, algorithmic exchange (via DAOs) without relying on centralized, regulatory controls and (2) the expansion of NFT property practices to the non-blockchain world in order to “crack” everyday assets, practices and places to create liquidity and enable commodification of cities via a digital growth machine model. This paper uses interviews with blockchain entrepreneurs and analysis of business models to highlight how Web3 actors seek to change ownership and investment. Ironically a significant challenge to this effort is the lack of regulation (an anathema to the Web3 world) over NFT which undercuts the stability of the new spaces of ownership under construction.
