Blockchain technology and blockchain applications sit at the cross-road of data science and Internet of Things applications where getting the governance right for this new technological paradigm is of core concern for leaders aspiring to realize smart city and living initiatives. In this research, we deploy computational simulation of self and regulated governance and extend the findings to the new blockchain technology ecosystems. We propose that getting the governance approach right is as important as getting the technological platform issues resolved.
