Ethereum’s Joe Lubin: Blockchain Will Help to Create More Wealth
Ethereum (ETH) co-founder and ConsenSys CEO Joe Lubin has said that with blockchain, society will move “from a scarcity to an abundance mindset,” in a New York Times (NYT) interview published Nov. 12.
Lubin made his remarks at the NYT’s International Luxury Conference at the Intercontinental Hotel in Hong Kong, which runs Nov. 12-13 and brings together speakers that include the CEO of fashion brand Balenciaga, the president of Alibaba Group, and the CEO of luxury coat producer Moncler.
During the conference, Lubin spoke about how the advancements heralded by blockchain tech could potentially give control back to society, allowing for more individual “agency”:
Lubin’s comments last week on the present development of blockchain ecosystems — which he compared to the growth of the Internet — cast some light on his perspective that the technology’s disintermediation and decentralization can help to spur innovation across all levels of society and the economy by “enabl[ing] a self-determined, sovereign identity.”
This summer, Lubin outlined the processes of wealth generation in the new tokenized economy, noting that he has noticed a “qualitative shift in the nature of money” that has moved society towards a world of “global villages.”
