The Future of Urban Resilience

Stay Foreign


Visual Identity for the International Conference of Coining Alternatives organised by The Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam, 21-22 March, 2014.

MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives considers digital experiments with revenue models, payment systems and currencies against the backdrop of ongoing global economic decline. While the economic downturn endures and budget cuts prevail, we see the emergence of alternative payment systems and revenue models in digital media.

Online bartering sites, a plethora of crowd-funding platforms, new forms of valuation, e-wallets and crypto-currencies like Bitcoin, are but a few examples. These coincide with the huge growth of mobile money transfer services across Asia and Africa and the general convergence of digital and financial industries.
