We designed a self-owned shop that relies on blockchain technology.
Design a way to materialise the blockchain.
This Ain’t Rock ’n Roll Team is the creator of the Brixton Pound, a local currency that was temporarily used in the south of London. Currently, this currency is being developed into a digital tokenized version (cryptocurrency), which will be implemented in the Algorand blockchain. To support the initiative, our brief challenged us to design a way to materialize the blockchain.
But what does it mean exactly to materialize the blockchain? How can such an intangible concept become tangible? What metaphors come into play? The answer: a shop that owns itself. Yes, that’s possible.
