C2B Consumer to Business

Blockchains hold the potential to fundamentally change the roles of market participants. In particular, they might change the relationship between business and consumers and redefine traditional roles or lead to a merger of “consumers“ and “producers“ into “prosumers“. Referring to two realizations of this idea – the tendering of slight consumption activities by consumers and the differentiated identity management of data – the project investigates which legal and technical requirements have to be met and communicated to make consumers as well as companies appreciate such a restructuring of roles.
