Abstract (English)

This paper sheds light on the Blockchains potential as a new ecosystem. It discusses in what form Blockchain technology will disrupt society. In order to do so, it emphasises a historical comparison between promises of the Blockchain and the Internet. Social implications of the Blockchains technicality, commodity and the means of authority are used to demonstrate its future impact on capitalist society. This paper shows that the technicalities of the Blockchain fall outside the scope of liberating industries and instead will be used as profitable capitalist instruments.
