Towards a participatory digital ethnography of blockchain governance

Blockchain governance occurs through a combination of social and technical activities, involving smart contracts, deliberation within a group, and voting.

While typologies of blockchain governance can be constructed by gathering on-chain interactions and formal rules, other aspects are more difficult to observe, including governance interactions occurring inside discussion forums.
