Distributed Futures


An open source research programme for Smart Ledgers and new technologies. 


Smart Ledgers are the ‘next big thing’ in technology. 

They’re based on a combination of Mutual Distributed Ledgers (aka blockchain: multiorganisational databases with a super audit trail, used since 2009 in cryptocurrencies) with embedded programming and sensing, thus permitting semi-intelligent, autonomous transactions.

Smart Ledgers are a technology for fair play in a globalised world.



We work in partnership with many stakeholders to learn together and build the vital infrastructure needed to make Smart Ledgers a success.

Our research is structured around four themes:

  • Society
  • Technology
  • Economics
  • Politics

And it’s directed at four outcomes:

  • Expanding frontiers
  • Changing systems
  • Delivering services
  • Building communities
