Frequently Asked Questions: New technologies

What is the relationship between iSHARE and new technologies?

iSHARE has been developed based on consideration of all existing technologies as well as technologies that could play a role in the near future.

What is the relationship with blockchain?

All kinds of agreements are necessary in order for blockchain technology to work in practice, such as who is allowed to do what, which software is used, who makes that software, which computers it runs on and who can access them.

Furthermore, the answers to a number of key questions, such as ‘Who can access which blockchain data?’ and ‘Where does the data in the blockchain come from?’ have a link to data control. The iSHARE agreements on data-sharing and control are therefore relevant in blockchain projects and can also be utilized in them.
