After Money is an ESRC funded research project lead by researchers in Design Informatics at the Edinburgh University and aims to introduce the underlying principles of blockchain technology to audiences that would otherwise not be consulted on the development of new currencies. Using a design-led and participatory approach, the research project explores potential use cases for money as software through public engagement activities including families and local organisations. The research represents a significant contribution to contemporary debates around the emergence of new forms of value exchange and offers tangible outcomes for local, economic and academic communities.

The team working on this research project consists of:

Principle Investigators: Prof. Chris Speed and Prof. Jon Oberlander

Research Associates: Bettina Nissen and Shaune Oosthuizen
