The Cryptoledgers Community Group has been proposed by Primavera De Filippi:
This group aims at creating an international and interdisciplinary network of researchers – academic and non-academic – interested in exploring the economic, legal, technical and societal challenges raised and faced by cryptoledger-based applications, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.
The purpose of this group is to enable peer support and collaboration for researchers across institutions and disciplines to achieve a better understanding of the opportunities and risks posed by cryptocurrencies and other cryptoledger-based applications.
This group includes those doing theoretical analysis, investigating tools and applications that might hinder or support the adoption of alternative cryptocurrencies, or collaborating on the development of new tools to further promote their deployment worldwide.
This group will not publish specifications.
You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and people can join to begin work. In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account.
Once launched, the group will no longer be listed as “proposed”; it will be in the list of current groups.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on firstname.lastname@example.org
