Designing to Learn: Blockchain for Social Impact
Through its work with blockchain partners in both the technology and social impact spaces, Emergence Consulting has developed a working paper that outlines how blockchain, using token engineering, can facilitate social impact in a measurable and evidence driven manner.
This is done by correlating the phases of token engineering with a standard social impact program lifecycle. The hope is to create some initial common understanding needed to begin integrating the technologists currently driving blockchain use cases, with those policy makers and practicioners in the social impact space who increasingly need the technology. It is the opinion of the paper that any reliable evidence base on "what works" for blockchain and social impact must be built on this integration of new fields, actors, skill sets and philosophies.
