Emerging digital infrastructures such as cryptocurrencies, distributed ledgers and smart contracts are gaining more attention within Design and HCI research. These complex assemblages of technologies bring unquestioned benefits, but also new uncertainties and failures. Whilst many users and individuals have heard of or used cryptocurrencies and smart contracts, understanding, ideating and innovating with such technologies is a complex process and requires a range of knowledge and skills not easily accessible to many users. In this work, we created a platform to facilitate development and experimentation with location-based smart contracts.
