It is a blog and a resource site on blockchain, and social, cultural, political, and economic issues run by its principal, Dr. Jeffrey Yost. In the very long-term it may evolve to a nonprofit. For now, the near term, and the intermediate term, it is a side hobby on issues important to me, social possibility and social justice with Web 3.0--a more egalitarian future than past.
Blockchain and Society is a public history and social study of technology site and I elected to set up as my own blog, fund it myself, and do it on my own time.
Blockchain and Society is a personal site and does not accept donations. The primary goal is public engagement (within as well as far beyond academia) and promoting conversation on important issues of technology and societal inequality.
The site has no popups or advertising and no revenue in order to optimize reader experience.

Officially, Blockchain and Society is a Division of Enterprise History, LLC. I am the sole proprietor and set this up years ago when I thought I might have time to consult. The only income to date outside of my day job as a Research Prof. and Institute Director (CBI) at UMN, are the typical ones of humanities and social science academics--royalties on sales of my books and small honoraria for refereeing books for university presses, occasional talks, or writings.
