Abstract

The public discourse on blockchains and cryptocurrencies has been influenced by a range of domains, but there is a “leisured” aspect to blockchains that warrants the attention of academics and practitioners, as this aspect serves to enrich the public engagement with this emergent branch of technology. This discussion paper advances that discourse through an exploratory analysis of a “leisured”, yet monetized and technologically coherent, program built on blockchain principles.

Keywords: Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Technology, Leisure, Play
