TE Book

"A Hitchhiker's Guide to Token Engineeringβ€œ is a crowdsourced and crowdfunded book and online content repo for token designers, entrepreneurs and applied researchers to get the hang of Token Engineering. The book aims at giving the full account of experience with an end-to-end tool chain: from co-designing the digital ecosystem through games, to mapping the territory, to not mistaking the map for the territory. It's full of cautious tales, as well as the soothing layout of a tool chain that will assist you in designing, modeling, simulating, securely deploying, governing, and upgrading a token economy - building on the multidisciplinary foundations of cryptoeconomics. This is going to be a hell of a ride. So, grab your towel.

Check out the Annotated Table of Content on GitHub: Watch that repo for updates on ToC in the coming days until 20 June 2020, when Early Access starts. During Early Access June-August, when first drafts of chapters are being released, the repo will be filled with bounties and quests. This is when public contributions start. Of course you can already join the Early Access when you have vested interest, i.e. you are currently tending to the design of a token economy, or part of a vivid network that could scale through tokenization. Especially, "Chapter 3. Cryptoeconomics Patterns" and "Chapter 4. Token Model Generation" might be of interest to you. Of course, the book applies itself to itself and will have a token model. You can follow along step-by-step and give feedback what works for you and what doesn't. Maybe you have better insights with different tools? Contribute!

NEWS: First learning module from "Chapter 4. Token Model Generation" made it to TE Academy as "Ecosystem Value Flows"! You can apply until July 9 to participate in the first iteration
