An upcoming event will point to what the future of our money may look like – what form it will take, how we will earn it, how we move it around, where we keep it.
After Money is a two-day symposium, organised by the Centre for Design Informatics, which is part of Edinburgh Futures Institute. It is taking place on 20-21 November.
It aims to better understand the implications that FinTech, Cryptocurrency and Smart Contract developments are having on how industry, publics and governments understand money.
The fast pace and shifting developments in these areas have raised significant questions not only about new forms of currency but the economic, social and political constructs that surround them.
The symposium aims to investigate different perspectives of how financial technologies may influence our lives.
The day is intended to bring together a variety of people from academia, industry and culture to understand the broader, cross-cutting implications of these new forms of banking, programmable money and representations of value and its wide-ranging repercussions.
The symposium is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and is hosted by New Media Scotland at the Alt-w LAB.
