Crypto systems can be difficult.
It is diffcult to understand. Difficult to make sense of the mechanism. Difficult to access the value-add of the projects. You have built a brilliant product. Once users understand the mechanisms, real users and real growth will see the value it brings. Economics Design translates that the complicated mechanism into simple and easy to understand framework.
In this channel, we share about the design of economic systems. This could be blockchain token-based ecosystem, video game simulated economy or real business world like frequent flyer and credit card points system. The goal is to educate you on the various mechanism behind how digital ecosystems work.
More specifically, Economics Design focuses on the design of ecosystems. That means incentive design and governance. All ecosystems (digital, tokenised, non-digital) have similar underlying economics concepts. By understanding these economic concepts, it can help to better design incentives for participants.
We also design and consult on the economics for projects. Feel free to email us!
