IAETH Talk—Internet Computer Protocol: democratic evolution of a web3 platform

Recent technological advances have enabled the efficient execution of decentralized web3 applications and smart contracts. The Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) is a fast and efficient decentralized blockchain-based system for the execution of general-purpose applications in the form of smart contracts. In particular, the ICP’s execution, governance and evolution are controlled by different parties in a trustless and fault-tolerant manner instead of a central entity.
In this talk, I will give an overview of the ICP, followed by a discussion oft he challenges the IC faces to facilitate upgrading itself through voting by ICP token holders and present our approach to tackle them.
