V&A DIGITAL FUTURES: MONEY NO OBJECT (part 4)
About: This session will be a currency prototyping brainstorm, where we will explore whether a currency or alternative exchange system might be developed for and by a distributed network of artists to support and promote experimental, open and free practices (on the understanding that anyone might call themselves an artist). Would it be a distributed cryptocurrency or networked version of a local currency? Could such a system generate, construct/create and circulate value? The workshop will be facilitated by Brett Scott, author ot The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money and founder of The London School of Financial Arts, and will be followed by an evening public showcase of the work produced during the session.
