6 Questions for Denelle Dixon of the Stellar Development Foundation – Cointelegraph Magazine

We ask blockchain and crypto-currency builders what they think about the industry…. And we tease them a little randomly to keep them on their toes!

This week our 6 questions are for Denella Dixon, CEO and Executive Director of the Star Development Foundation.

Denelle Dixon is CEO and Executive Director of Stellar Development Foundation, a nonprofit that uses blockchain to unlock the world’s economic potential by making money more fluid, markets more open, and people more influential. Before joining Stellar, Denell was COO of Mozilla, one of the most successful open source organizations. During her time at Mozilla, she led the organization’s business, revenue and policy teams, including the ongoing fight for net neutrality and global efforts to give people control of their personal data. It also helped Mozilla understand how to partner with commercial organizations while staying true to its core mission of openness, innovation and online capability. Denelle is a corporate lawyer and has worked in the past as general counsel and as private equity and technology counsel. Throughout his career, Denelle has actively advocated for neutrality, encryption, government disclosure of vulnerabilities, and more choice and control for the user.

1 – What problem do you think has a chance of being solved, but hasn’t been tried yet?

There is no shortage of ideas about what blockchain can solve in terms of efficiency, transparency, data security, speed and cost. The beauty is that the versatility of blockchain can be applied to most, if not all, industries, from finance to healthcare to education to retail. And blockchain has been around long enough, and not just for cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Companies, organizations and institutions are now looking to integrate blockchain into their technology stack. Conclusion: If a process can be improved by technology, then blockchain can be part of that solution.

But before we see a complete solution, blockchain needs to mature. So, the word tempted here may not be as fully realized.

I’d like to see cyber security. Staying locked up during the pandemic has only made people more dependent on technology, whether it’s how they communicate, their buying habits, or their consumption/creation of content. But it’s hard for users to choose between protecting their data and giving them incentives to access it – not to mention the fact that users are constantly at risk of being scammed or hacked. So while users should be more concerned about protecting their own data, blockchain can protect users at the product level through decentralization and built-in encryption techniques. I’m very curious to see where cybersecurity-focused blockchain projects will go in the coming years.

2 – What do you think will be the biggest blockchain trend in the next 12 months?

In general : The more user-friendly blockchain becomes, the more companies and individuals will use it. Interest in blockchain is only growing as the technology and infrastructure become more reliable and useful, allowing people to solve problems in more diverse ways.

This means that sectors other than fintech will also start thinking about how they can benefit from blockchain. I welcome the diversification of industries bringing more applications, products and services for blockchain, as this indicates that the public is increasingly accepting that blockchain can indeed become mainstream.

In terms of financial systems, the debate over digital stables and coins will continue to evolve. Finally, people are starting to see that supporting traditional financial institutions is a cost-effective, quick and powerful solution. If these institutions start issuing stablecoins themselves, as Bitbond and Bank von der Heydt have done, mainstream consumers will be much more comfortable with the idea of digital currencies and blockchain in general.

3 – What is the most interesting place you have ever visited and why?

This is a difficult question because an interesting question can encompass so many feelings. If I had to choose, I would choose Krakow, Poland. Although my visit was short, I could feel the history – both beautiful and tragic – emanating from Krakow’s culturally diverse and historically significant major districts. The modern city is lively, the historic buildings, churches and cathedrals dominate the picture. It was a moving juxtaposition for me, especially after visiting the Jewish Quarter – Kazimierz, which is a constant reminder of the tragedies of World War II, combined with the recent splendor of the rebirth of the Jewish community in the area with art exhibitions celebrating the recovery. For me, the trip to Krakow was a lesson in life, art and cultural preservation.

4 – What is the future of social media?

If anyone has watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix, they probably know that social media has abandoned its original promise: to give people a space to express their thoughts and connect with each other.

We see now that there are many problems on social media. Not only are the psychological and cultural effects of social media more dramatic than many of us expected, but current policies and regulations are insufficient to protect users.

Like most technologies, social media is not inherently good or bad. It is a tool, although very sensitive to algorithmic changes and design decisions in the hands of a few.

So are we going to see a lot more video features because that’s what works best for the algorithm? Will we see the votes of some rise to the top for saying what gets the most attention? Will we see companies increase their visibility on social media because their advertising budgets are a major source of revenue for these networks? Yes, with all of the above.

But we now know where the weaknesses of social media lie, and these networks need to be revised, redesigned and rebuilt with not just a few voices, but all voices. That’s what it takes to get back what made social media so special in the first place: having a platform where your voice can be heard and counted.

5 – What are the top five cryptocurrency Twitter feeds you can’t live without, and why?

Can I tell @cointelegraph?

The other five (in no particular order):

@CoinDesk: Their focus on data, research, and multimedia content helps me stay on top of overall trends, leverage, and innovations in the crypto world.

Block: The way they stay on top of all the major players in the crypto/blockchain space is short, sweet and to the point.

@ForbesCrypto: This is one of the biggest crypto ads on Twitter and for good reason: You get all the exclusives!

@BlockchainAssn: The Blockchain Association has been at the forefront of DC policy and rules for blockchain and crypto. I appreciate their nuanced discussions and the legislation that flows in this space.

@CoinMarketCap: CoinMarketCap is a data enthusiast’s dream. In addition to rankings and charts, [as] they are best known, CoinMarketCap also produces excellent content focused on global policies, regulations, and projects found in the crypto environment.

6 – Close your eyes and think of a happy place. What do you see?

I see my family, my parents, my partner, our children and close friends sitting around a campfire in our garden playing charades. It’s one of the happiest moments, especially when my team wins.
