LAB #2 in the Art Data Money series
A weekend workshop, led by Dan Hassan of the Robin Hood Cooperative, focusing on the political/social relevance of Bitcoin, blockchains, and finance. All participants will be given some Bitcoin.
ADMISSION FEE: £10 for one day or £15 for the weekend*
BOOK HERE (places are limited - bookings on a first come first served basis)
The weekend workshop will take a historical look at the political / social relevance of Bitcoin ("Breaking the Taboo on Money") by looking at the history of technical and social inventions the came before it. I'll then futurecast what this could mean for the future of p2p finance (blockchains, new social architectures and peer owned platforms with a mix of synthetic finance, peer-owned-banks) and place Robin Hood Coop within this future ("Breaking the Taboo of Financial Markets").
It will include hands on activities on covering topics such as blockchains (actually running them and understanding them) as well as dissecting financial instruments - such as Robin Hood Cooperative has been doing.
