Cryptocurrency has been the subject of fierce debate since 2017. Bitcoin, Ethererum, and other peer-to-peer digital cash systems that make up the cryptocurrency ecosystem today claim to hold the potential to revolutionize the very nature of global economics by decentralizing how money and value are exchanged. Mainstream economists, institutional banks, and governments (in particular U.S. and China), have attacked crypto in words and in deeds. The scrutiny and interest in crypto has made it a lively and future-directed subject of discussion in an otherwise dismal political and cultural year.

On Friday, April 27, Badlands Unlimited joins us for a conversation on the basics of crypto: its history, technology, and current application in the field of finance and beyond. Maya Binyam and Grayson Earle, co-founders of Bail Bloc, will talk about how their app redirects a small portion of your computer’s unused processing power to post bail for low-income people detained in the Bronx and in Queens. The conversation will be followed by a Q+A with Bail Bloc and Badlands Crypto Group (Miriam Katzeff, Meredith Finkelstein, and Paul Pham), whose work is currently on view in An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940—2017.
