Timestamps, Society, and Mass Adoption of a Trusted Web

Scott Stornetta, Blockchain Co-inventor

Scott Stornetta is a Grandfather, Teacher, Investor and scientific researcher – and an invention he did 30 years ago totally revolutionizes the world of tech today. In 1991, he and Stuart Haber, published the whitepaper “How to Time-Stamp a Digital Document”. This paper, in fact, could be described as the invention of blockchain. In 1992 this paper won the Discover Award for Computer Software; it’s considered to be one of the most important papers in the development of cryptocurrencies as we know it today.

Tune into this fascinating conversation as we explore inventing blockchain by proving its impossibility, the current state of trust and blockchain’s role in fixing it, stakeholders in mass adoption of timestamps and Web3 – and Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and how to get there.
