This seminar is brought to you by GCAS College Dublin & The Economic Space Agency.


There are several converging drivers pushing a change in how economic relations are organised. Changes in social interaction, production of value, collaboration and forms of organisation are creating new subjectivities in search for empowering economic forms. At the same time, distributed and decentralised technologies are facilitating horizontal and autonomous software and platforms. It is rapidly becoming possible to collectively design and implement new forms of economic interaction. Bitcoin maximalism, platform co-operativism, blockchain nations, self-sovereign identity and so on are all different parts of this as-yet-unknown elephant that can be called crypto-economy, and that is explored in the seminar from the point of view of its conditions of existence.
