Social good has a big impact on the society. Indeed, with the term “social good” is referred something which benefits the general public, and at the same time, it is something which reflects and respects their wishes, being ‘from’ the people. The social good can be envisioned as global citizens uniting to unlock the potential of individuals through collaboration to create a positive societal impact. A lot of interest has been produced in the last years, and new proposals and technologies have been considered. Among them, Blockchain, distributed ledger technologies, and decentralized technologies in general, such as IPFS, have been considered in order to improve all the aspects of the social good. Blockchain and decentralized technologies have been a big impact on the world. In particular, the Blockchain technology has been applied to several fields, such as e-health, IoT, media, etc. The big question around the definition of this track is: “how the blockchain gives a big impact on the social good? And how decentralization can improve the ICT industries?”. The track manages the possible application of decentralized technologies in research fields included in the global scope of the social good.
while the revolutionary potential of blockchains has been largely tested (in the financial domain in particular), its possible applications in social domains and to address sustainability challenges have been explored far less.
The aim of this special session is to explore and debate the main concepts and implications of blockchain technology, how it can be a driver of innovation, and positive effects on our societies, industry, legal systems, and economic/financial system. Also the risks and uncertainties that blockchain arrows are welcomed to be debated in this section.
This special session will provide both academic and industry researchers a forum to discuss the impact, future, and limitations of blockchain technology regarding its effect across specific industries, economic, finance, law, etc.
