FACT LIverpool will be launching a new project and app this coming Wednesday with what sounds like some sort of transactional app utilising digital currency and real live people. The A Moeda project, an experiment which will attempt to send digital coins on a journey around the world using cutting edge technology.

A MOEDA presents a model where humans are vehicles for coins, and coins are vehicles for humans.

"How do we imagine sharing everyday life with semi-autonomous machines? How much autonomy are we prepared to let objects have? Through two workshops in Berlin and Liverpool, the project developed two new digital coin editions with distinct identities to join a Lisbon edition and be set on the task of a round-world trip."

Attendees will be able to download the app and be the first to start the coins on their journey. 

After the launch it will be up to you, the public, to send these coins on their journeys - you can get involved by telling your friends to download the app, and then swap digital coins through your mobile device. Through swaps these coins will travel around the globe, hoping to finally return to their place of origin.

For refreshments, wine and nibbles and more importantly to find out more the do book. But in the mean time you can find out more about the project here. 

Wednesday 5 October / 7pm - 9pm / The Box / FREE, booking required
