Abstract:   This paper is a written account of the pitching research experience two UQ Research Scholars’ (Matthew & Marisol) underwent, as part of the UQ Summer Research Program. It elaborates the use of Faff’s (2015) pitching research framework by the duo to develop a full ‘fantasy pitch’ in studying how the usage of digital money can alter the social construct, and the value of money. Comments on how the individuals has benefited from such a learning experience can be found at the end of the paper in ‘personal reflections’.
