Alternative Basic Income Systems: A Discussion

May 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+4

Free

Basic income is a hot topic this year at New York’s blockchain week. Join the discussion this evening to learn about three different OpenUBI projects: a cryptocurrency (Manna), an independent digital currency (Project Greshm), and a Sybil-resistant decentralized identity system (BrightID). We will kick off with an introduction to Universal Basic Income (UBI) by our esteemed guest Dr. Michael A. Lewis, professor at Hunter College and co-founder of the US Basic Income Guarantee (USBIG), followed by lightning talks from each project. At 7:30 we will begin our panel discussion comparing the opportunities and challenges inherent in different kinds of basic income systems, concluding with an audience Q&A. This is a free event.
