Articles should focus on the social consequences of new forms of exchange, especially in digital contexts in which the boundaries of states tend to become ill-defined and porous. How do crypto currencies are influencing or will influence societies? What does the use of new forms of non-state exchange (apps, messengers) imply at the level of social relations?

Especially welcomed will be those contributions that focus upon:

  • New cultural phenomena related to digital economic exchange (blockchain, decentralized and/or peer-to-peer transactions, anonymous trading).
  • Extra-State Money (brand-based money, banks or corporations currencies).
  • New forms of exchanging money in low-income societies, and the interactions that this entails (mobile payments or banking, etc.).
  • Socialization and sociability in digital contexts of monetary exchange.

  • Forms of local currencies in relation to the general (globalized) economic context.
