A highlight of this semester’s seminar “Material Culture I: Designing Value(s)”, Bitcoin and Blockchain educator Anita Posch guest hosts an open workshop session on digital currencies and smart contracts. We will discuss key questions cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies raise with regard to contemporary as well as future forms of collaborative design practice, open innovation, economic development and the internet as a facilitator and guardian of social democracy.
