For many years it’s been a cliche to claim that information or data are the new oil. This fits well for the purposes of commodifying and selling data, but the analogy poorly matches data’s core properties. Oil is a scarce physical resource. Data and information by contrast can be replicated without limit and often become more valuable the more they are shared.

For the DECODE project we performed an initial study to chart the initial privacy requirements for DECODE and how they could be addressed in the DECODE architecture. As a point of departure we took the Privacy Design Strategies that we developed several years ago. These strategies translate
the soft legal norms into more concrete design requirements that engineers understand.

This post offers some thoughts on the opportunities and challenges of blockchain technology, with particular reference to the DECODE project. DECODE is a pan-European effort to research and pilot new approaches to how people manage their personal data. Here I’ll describe what a blockchain is, why blockchains are relevant to personal data management, and what difficulties might arise as the technology becomes implemented more widely.
