“In Cryptography We Trust,” the unofficial Bitcoin motto, has stimulated the creation of tens of billions of dollars worth of cryptocurrency. What Bitcoin has done for currency, blockchains promise to do for whole industries.
This workshop will explore the blockchain vision of supplanting human trust with distributed algorithms. Participants representing a broad cross-section of disciplines (e.g., computer scientists, economists, lawyers, legal scholars, entrepreneurs, and regulators) will discuss the technical, social, and legal aspects of reengineering services and whole institutions around blockchains, cryptocurrencies, and smart contracts. Presentations will cover challenges ranging from crime to overhyped technologies, and solutions ranging from deployed systems to mere gleams in the eyes of academic researchers.
The workshop is co-organized by IC3 (www.initc3.org)
