Following the 2017 ICO mania (Initial Coin Offering), the speculative and mediatic bubble around bitcoin and cryptocurrencies seems to have come - at least for now - to an halt. What's next for blockchain then? The emergence of Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) has triggered a new age of monetary experimentation which effects extend far beyond a redefinition of money per se. Economy and governance are two sides of the same token. More and more people are experimenting with new logics and protocols of self-organization, embracing and inventing different networked-based p2p models of self-organization and value production along the way. Are we moving toward what Lovink and Rossiter have dubbed "organized networks" or "networks with consequences"? What are the thresholds of financialization defining these new organizational forms? What are the social-political concerns and aesthetical enabling constraints that contribute to the shaping of these new value propositions?
