A review of the MoneyLab conference in Amsterdam March 21-22 organized by the Institute of Network Cultures. The central aim of the groundbreaking interdisciplinary gathering was to explore “experiments with currencies against the backdrop of ongoing global economic decline.” With panel discussions on “the monetization of everything” “dismantling global finance”, “beyond Bitcoin”, “a critique of crowdfunding” “designing alternatives”, etc… At last, an international project is starting to take shape to research and experiment with concrete alternatives, laying groundwork for a world in which the means of production are held in common and both the form and creation of money are subject to direct-democratic control by newly empowered communities of users.
