My goal in this residency is to develop my contribution to The Future of Demonstration/Proof-of-Burn episode, which consists in an exploration of post-blockchain scenarios and their (unintended) consequences. This will be done in the context of my own collaboration with the Economic Space Agency, an Oakland-based start up that is developing a post-blockchain full stack ecosystem to support organizational fluidity and emergent governance models. During the residency I will actively seek collaboration with other in-residence FoD contributors and participation in the launch/development of the Decentralized Autonomous Research Cluster.
