2020年共识大会:世界经济论坛分享去中心化全球经济的愿景

2020-5-15 12:11

 

一些阴谋论者认为,世界经济论坛(WEF)是一群精英的阴谋集团,他们试图统治世界,把普通公民置于他们的控制之下。


一年多来,世界经济论坛的全球区块链理事会一直在悄无声地——可能是太悄无声地——制定一份旨在为去中心化经济奠定基础的文件。


Clovyr首席执行官兼联合创始人Amber Baldet和埃森哲高级董事总经理David Treat出席了今天上午的会议,讨论了他们在委员会的成员资格和Presidio原则的制定。


这些原则是针对人的——从软件工程师到政治家——建立的系统将使所谓的第四次工业革命成为可能,在某种程度上尚待定义的现象中,人类的生活完全被一套数字、生物和物理技术所改变。


这些原则旨在形成“一种关于如何在应用程序的创建者和用户之间平衡信任和权力的共同愿景,这些应用程序构建于或合并了一些分散的部分”。


随着主流参与者开始认真对待分散化的基础设施,怀疑论者很容易就会吹嘘这个概念将不可避免地被淡化。这不是对待它的方式。他说:“在我们的谈话中,我们太频繁地采取一种生硬的二分法。”“有人可以看到我的数据、监视我或审计我——或者他们不能。我们生活的世界没有一个是二元的。”


但要在信任和不信任之间找到一种平衡的方法,至少需要我们在这些术语的实际含义方面达成一致。而我们不是,鲍迪特建议道。


“这个特定的技术创新空间充斥着不充分的语言——人们在左、右、中相互交流,”区块链的中流砥柱说。“我们拥有共同语言的能力至关重要。”


因此,语言一直是该组织关注的焦点,鲍迪特说,他们向其他利益团体寻求反馈。


治疗,一旦到位,我们都互相理解,我们就可以开始将技术与我们想要的社会价值观结合起来。他说:“亮点在于,这项技术为我们提供了越来越好的方法。”


例如,我们现在可以在保持共享视图的同时共享加密数据或隔离敏感信息。既然我们可以做得更多——比如在人与人之间直接发送数字货币——我们就需要清楚我们的价值观是什么。因此,普雷西迪奥原则。


需要明确的是,这些原则并不等同于协议。这是一种道德体系。因此,在Baldet看来,归根到底,分散化并不是要创建一个单一的系统,而是要制定一个通用的标准,允许选择的真正多样性。例如,您可以在会议中使用Zoom,因为它可以工作。或者,你也可以在网络游戏中见面。或者你有工具来创造更多的私人工作区。


鲍迪特说:“我希望人们能够理解,权力下放不仅仅是‘哦,我们都采纳了我的方案’,而是要有各种不同的选择。”


不过话说回来,这正是一群暗中操纵全球经济体系的精英想让你相信的事情,不是吗?

 

Some conspiracy theorists see the World Economic Forum (WEF) as a cabal of elites seeking to rule the world and keep everyday citizens under their thumb.

 

Such anti-Davos commentators probably won't be heartened to know that, for over a year, WEF's Global Blockchain Council has been working quietly—perhaps too quietly—on a document meant to create the foundations for a decentralized economy.

 

Clovyr CEO and co-founder Amber Baldet and David Treat, senior managing director at Accenture, appeared at Consensus: Distributed this morning to discuss their membership on the council and the making of the Presidio Principles.

 

The principles are directed at the people—from software engineers to politicians—building the systems that will enable the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, a somewhat yet-to-be-defined phenomenon in which human life is utterly transformed by a suite of digital, biological, and physical technologies.

 

The principles aim to craft "a shared vision for how to balance trust and power among creators and users of applications which build on or incorporate some decentralized pieces."

 

As mainstream players start to take decentralized infrastructure seriously, it's easy for skeptics to crow that the concept will inevitably be watered down. That’s not how Treat looks at it. "Too frequently in the conversations we have, we take a blunt binary approach,” he said. “Someone can see my data or surveil me or audit me—or they can't. And none of the world we live in is that binary."

 

But finding a balanced approach between trust and trustlessness requires, at minimum, that we all be on the same page in terms of what those terms actually mean. And we’re not, suggested Baldet.

 

"This particular tech innovation space has been riddled with inadequate language—people talking past each other left, right, and center," said the blockchain mainstay. "Our ability to have common language is crucial."

 

Language, then, has been much of the focus of the group, which Baldet said reached out to other interest communities for feedback.

 

To Treat, once that’s in place and we all understand each other, we can actually start aligning the technology with the social values we want. "The bright spot is the technology is giving us better and better ways to do that," he said.

 

For example, we can now share encrypted data or segregate sensitive information while keeping a shared view. Now that we can do even more—like sending digital currency directly between people—we need to be clear about what our values are. Hence, the Presidio Principles.

 

To be clear, the principles don’t equate to a protocol. It’s a system of ethics. Therefore, in Baldet’s view, ultimately, decentralization isn't about creating a single system but about crafting universal standards that allow for a true diversity of options. For example, you can use Zoom for meetings because that works.

Alternatively, you could meet up within online games. Or you’d have the tools to create more private workarounds.

 

Said Baldet, "Where I hope people are getting to is understanding that decentralization isn't just 'oh, we've all adopted my protocol,' but rather it is about having all these different choices."

 

Then again, that’s just the type of thing a manipulative group of elites secretly pulling the strings of the global economic system would want you to believe, isn’t it?
