the general topic that i would like to discuss is FOSS and blockchain.
How does blockchain fit into the FOSS community?
unlike many other projects that are started in the FOSS community, or where the ideals of the project are very much aligned with the FOSS community, many blockchain projects appear to be following a different philosophy, and the fact that the blockchain code is under a Free Software and Open Source licence is more incidental than intentional.
i will invite a selection of speakers coming to COSCUP to join the panel
and i'd like to ask every speaker questions like:
what is your relationship to the FOSS community?
what made you decide to come here, instead of going to a blockchain conference?
how do you use Free Software and Open Source in your project?
do you think that blockchain projects should be more focused on FOSS, on their roots, where their code comes from? if yes, how could we achieve that?
does blockchain depend on Free Software and Open Source licensing?
if you had to choose between FOSS and blockchain, what is more important to you?
the specific set of questions will still change. and i will include the invited speakers in choosing good questions.
