Hardly any aspect of our lives these days is not intermediated by data and digital entanglements. We explore what perspectives anthropology adds and what we can learn from sister disciplines to tackle a range of questions such as: How does our digital footprint affect our creditworthiness, or what we pay for health insurance? What might a feminist economic perspective of cryptocurrency look like? And how does blockchain prompt us to think differently about value?
