In the evening of December 2, 2019, the Aspen Institute Germany will host a “Digital Dish” on the “Blockchain Strategy of the German Federal Government” together with Thomas Heilmann, Member of the German Bundestag (CDU) with an expertise in blockchain and Germany’s digital agenda. The discussion will be moderated by Daniel Resas, Associated Partner at Schnittker Möllmann Partners and Senior Fellow at the Zicklin Center (The Wharton School). Germany’s Blockchain Strategy, which was adopted on September 18th, presents a package of measures designed to underline a commitment to research into technological possibilities and to encourage more blockchain-related innovations in Germany. This discussion will explore questions surrounding the governance of crypto-assets, current legislative initiatives, and the importance of blockchain technology in the context of public policy goals. The discussion will take place in German and will be hosted in cooperation with Telefónica Deutschland and Schnittker Möllmann Partners. Digital Dish is a regular series that brings one or two provocative thinkers together for an intimate, off-the-record lunch or dinner to discuss issues related to the most pressing tech policy debates. It features prominent speakers including policymakers, elected officials, activists, innovators, thought-leaders, business representatives from both sides of the Atlantic and a mix of frontier thinkers on tech policy and specialists focusing on the U.S.-European relationship.
