Datafication, dematerialisation, platformisation and the need to track and account for different forms of value are some of the defining trends of our time. In this context, the Internet of Value emerges as the necessary and almost inevitable infrastructure to support the transformation of the capitalist economy to the new times. However, the Internet of Value is not without risks of its own. In this talk, Dr. Paolo Tasca uncovers the trends leading to and the risks emerging from the Internet of Value, to propose a realistic and forward-looking direction for innovation.
