(I lost 50 dollars in a Bitcoin crash but I am still a believer")
Monday May 13, 2013
De Unie, Mauritsweg 34-35, Rotterdam
Doors open 19:45 hrs, starts 20:00 hrs.
"In times of crisis and the failure of traditional economical systems we can witness an emergence of alternative economies and monetary systems. No more euros as currency but an exchange of time, values,Â services, knowledge or products instead.
Examples includeÂ Bitcoin, the virtual system and Timebanks, that propose time as currency. How does these 'new' currencies work? And do these initiatives really represent alternatives for "old money"? 'New Currencies? (I lost 50 dollars in a Bitcoin crash but I am still a believer)' is an evening about the design of 'new' value systems.
Central questions include: is sharing the new owning, is trust the new currency? And if so, could networked mediaÂ meet these promises, as a framework for virtual and DIY currencies?
