Circle-U Workshop “Grounding Crypto” on digital infrastructures, 1-3.11.2023, Berlin

In the first week of November 2023 we participated in the Circle-U: “Grounding crypto”, organized in Berlin at the Institute of European Ethnology. The purpose of the workshop, which took place between the first and third of November, was to connect with fellow researchers from various European universities to share our initial findings, gather new ideas, and establish fruitful collaborations for our future endeavors. Our friends and researchers Tobias Boos, Ia Eradze, Juan Grigera, Alexander Harder and Bernd Kasparek participated in the workshop.

The workshop consisted of several parts, including a public roundtable on ephemeral tokens and ubiquitous antennas, through which we wanted to analyze the relationship between sovereignty and digital infrastructures. We also held internal workshops on blockchain analysis, money, sovereignty, digital ethnographies and anthropology, and big data.
