Cryptocurrencies are often described as the new wild west of finance and speculative investments. Jan Haaken talks with Emaline Friedman about recent developments in the crypto world and how non-profit organizations are making use of some of the same digital technologies in developing alternative social media (ASMs). Jan and Emaline take up the claims of some developers of ASMs that these programs represent a kind of prefigurative politics. Friedman is a critical psychologist and social theorist and author of Internet Addiction: A Critical Psychology of Users. She also works on peer-to-peer technologies, aiming to bring cooperativism and ethical data use into the digital world.
