Point of view
Blockchain could transform global transactions. It is now at a critical moment in its development where it needs to choose whether to focus on a free solution, a proprietary solution, or a joint solution. It is important to keep in mind that the present international framework promotes the internet joint solution, which refers to the parallel exploitation of free and proprietary solutions that allowed the major platform companies to shape and centralize the deployment of web contents and interactions.

On December 10th, Member Countries of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) will meet in Buenos Aires for their 11th Ministerial Conference (MC11). These biennial meetings on international trade are not viewed as successful and observers have the feeling that they are signing the “little death” of the WTO. However, this organisation is still existing, functioning and receiving support. Rather than writing the chronicle of a death foretold, it is worth considering some ways to ensure the WTO’s longevity.
