While lolcats flourish online, real cats are suffering.
The Road to Budgetary Blockchain Bliss, is a 2 hour Live Action Role Play adventure for the Blockchain-curious of all backgrounds – hackers, lawyers, activists, artists, financiers, designers, venture capitalists, developers, marketeers- to improve the lot of our feline friends.
Players adopt a fictional future version of themselves and work with others to solve a real-world problem. They learn about and build DAOs and Dapps (machine-based organisations and apps on the blockchain) and act out the social discomforts, asymmetries, dramas and politics of collaboration and coalition-formation across difference….starting with the budget!
For this role-play event each participant is assigned a cat-invested persona and the general goal of networking their way into a profitable enterprise for themselves, the cat community, and the hosting institution. The workshop emulates the extravagant discourse and excitement surrounding the super-automation and hyperconectivity that comes with blockchain and similar technologies, and the capacity of the technology stakeholders to both increase and diminish global inequity.
