The Internet has challenged traditional ways of thinking about intellectual property: the globally interconnected world we live in today is very different from anything we've ever seen before. But a second wave is coming our way: The Internet of Value. Bitcoin and other digital currencies are emerging as a new way to track and exchange anything of value. These digital platforms could streamline existing payments and enable micro-payments; they could usher in transformations like "smart contracts" and distributed autonomous organizations. If the promise becomes reality, it will change how we come together as humans and economic actors and challenge how we think about legal rights, intellectual property, and the world works.
