This meetup was a deep-dive into the future of the (collaborative) economy, and the future of society. While shareNL has been involved in the sharing/collaborative economy for quite some time now, the blockchain was a relatively new topic. With the aim of reshaping society, it was time to address the potential role of blockchain platform services in the current society. To answer the question of whether the blockchain will live up to its promise to enable a true peer-to-peer network, Pieter van den Glind (shareNL), Samantha van der Bos (shareNL), Perry Smit (Innovationlab of the Chamber of Commerce), Chris Huls (Rabobank), Jeroen Rijnbout (BITONIC), and Robert-Reinder Nederhoed (blandlord.com) provided us with insights into the possibilities of blockchain technology.

With non-profit organizations rethinking their strategies, local development programs and their own role in a changing world, Matthijs Nederveen and Samantha van den Bos believe the sharing economy is a topic, or a tool worth exploring. That's what we did on the 2nd of February. We came together and explored the current state, the development, opportunities and challenges of the collaborative economy in the global south at our shareNL home, in collaboration with The Spindle. And we did more than talking. Some good ideas were presented, and will be further developed. Read the full report by Elena Presas Batlló. (thank you!)
