As the rapid evolution of the blockchain has captured the attention of the investment community, Cornerstone has begun to offer insight into the technology’s potential to foster positive social change and the evolving notions of governance in its application. (See our reports Governance and the Ungovernable: Implications of Blockchain Proliferation and Making Sense of Blockchain Opportunities, as well as our July webcast “Beyond Finance: Considering the Business and Social Potential of the Blockchain“.)

We’ve  had the pleasure of getting to know leaders in this fast-growing field,  thanks to Cornerstone Board members Ibrahim AlHusseini and Andrew Masanto. And I am particularly pleased to join the Advisory Board for AirSwap, a token exchange based on the Swap protocol, a peer-to-peer protocol for trading Ethereum tokens. AirSwap is designed “to harness the same power of blockchain as a globally accessible, friction-free value network, supporting private and secure exchange between peers.”

In conjunction with the launch of AirSwap Token on October 10, this video was created. Please feel free to share – most of us face a steep learning curve in this potentially disruptive force.
