Matan Field believes we are standing at the dawn of a new era, a turning point in society, and invites us in to this changing world. First introduced by the anonymous Bitcoin inventor, Blockchain is a revolutionary new technology and concept which is now an exponential force. Are you ready to imagine a purely decentralized era of large-scale cooperation between people and computers which has never been possible before?
Matan Field is a blockchain researcher and entrepreneur, dedicated to decentralise the world and make it a better place. Starting as a theoretical physicist, Matan has completed his PhD at the Weizmann Institute, researching fundamental physics and String Theory in particular. For two decades, Matan has been curious about alternative economic and organisational models, while increasingly bothered with a feeling that “something is broken”. During his postdoctoral research at the Technion, he has discovered the blockchain and founded La’Zooz, a decentralized real-time ride-sharing network. Field then co-founded Backfeed to develop the basis for decentralised governance and organisations. Matan is dedicated today to bring the first truly decentralised organisation into life.
