Hosting and moderation of STRP Scenarios #21: Decentralised Collaborative Futures, with speakers Sarah Friend, lizvlx & Michelle Kasprzak, Penny Rafferty, and Will Rowe. This event was organized by STRP in collaboration with Foundation We Are as part of STRP Festival 2023.

Blockchains, NFTs, tokens, crypto, and DAOs; how can Web3 facilitate decentralised ownership and communities?

In this STRP Scenario, STRP and co-creator Foundation We Are examine the shift from Web2 to Web3, from open sharing to blockchain-based forms of (digital) ownership. Web2 is a term for the internet as we know it, controlled by major tech organizations such as Google, Meta and Microsoft. While this system has made it possible for billions of people to connect with each other, users and communities have also lost control and ownership of their data. The future of our online world lies in a collective reconquest of this ownership.

Web3, the next iteration of the internet integrating blockchain technologies, crypto and token-based economies, promises to be the triumph of an online world where individuals and communities can access - and own - their data and digital presence. Web3 will change how we consume, create, and design culture, and how we influence both virtual and physical art experiences. However, decentralised technology does not mean that power is evenly distributed.

STRP Scenario #21: Decentralised Collaborative Futures is a search for inspiring examples of design projects and collaborations from a non-hierarchical, cooperative organization and Web3 principles. This Scenario explores the potential of decentralised autonomous organizations (DAOs). And questions the benefits of crypto-based ownership, NFTs, and other blockchain-based forms of finance to empower communities online and locally. How can individuals and communities use Web3? And what do we need to redefine the online world and enable collaboration, listening and action?
